Passive Foreign Investment Company (PFIC) Income
Several Market Vectors ETFs may make investments in non-U.S. corporations classified as “passive foreign investment companies.” Generally speaking, PFICs are non-U.S. corporations having 50% or more of their assets invested in cash or securities, or having 75% or more of their gross income originating from passive sources, including but not limited to interest, dividends and rents. In other words, these foreign companies primarily derive their revenue streams from investments (rather than operations). Please refer to your Market Vectors ETF’s Statement of Additional Information (SAI) for further information on PFICs. The table above contains information regarding the PFIC tax adjustment for each year-end dividend per share.
