SonicShares Global Shipping ETF

The Supply Chain Trade with
a 30-Day SEC Yield* of 3.78%

Fund Summary

The SonicShares™ Global Shipping ETF (BOAT) provides pure-play exposure to the global maritime shipping industry. BOAT is an indexed ETF that seeks to provide performance results that correspond, before fees and expenses, to the Solactive Global Shipping Index. The Index consists of global shipping companies engaged in the maritime transportation of goods and raw materials, including consumer and industrial products, vehicles, dry bulk, crude oil and liquefied natural gas. Maritime shipping is considered the lifeline of the U.S. and global economies, as around 90% of the world’s trade is carried by sea. With the economy’s continued reliance on world trade, just-in-time manufacturing and inventory management, our dependence on maritime shipping should continue, which in turn should benefit shipping company stocks. BOAT allows investors to express a bullish view not only on this critical industry, but also on the anticipated recovery of the global economy that it sustains. BOAT tracks shipping companies like ZIM, Danaos, Matson, Star Bulk, OOCL, Hapag-Lloyd, Maersk, COSCO, Costamare and Navios.

BOAT is an indexed ETF that seeks to provide performance results that correspond before fees and expenses to the The Solactive Global Shipping Index (the “Index”). The Index consists of mid-to-large-capitalization companies listed on exchanges in select industrial countries that derive at least 50% of their revenue from specific activities within the global shipping industry.

The S&P 500® is composed of 500 selected common stocks most of which are listed on the New York Stock Exchange. It is not possible to invest directly in an index. A fund’s NAV is the sum of all its assets less any liabilities, divided by the number of shares outstanding. The market price is the most recent price at which the fund was traded.

The performance data quoted above represents past performance. Past performance does not guarantee future results. The investment return and principal value of an investment will fluctuate so that an investor’s shares, when sold or redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost and current performance may be lower or higher than the performance quoted above. Performance current to the most recent month-end can be obtained by calling (833) 378-0717.

Short term performance, in particular, is not a good indication of the fund’s future performance, and an investment should not be made based solely on historical returns. Returns beyond 1 year are annualized.
