The fund started trading on the NYSE Arca on June 9, 2011 and traded 320,924 shares with a total value of $7,999,710 million.

The Global X SuperDividend™ ETF tracks the Solactive Global SuperDividend™ Index, which measures the performance of 100 equally weighted companies that rank among the highest dividend yielding equity securities in the world.  The index provider applies certain dividend stability filters.  With equal weighting across a diverse group of 100 securities, investors may have less risk exposure in the event that a single company depreciates in price or reduces its dividend.

"Global X Funds received the most innovative North American ETF company prize by both US and European institutions," said Bruno del Ama, chief executive officer of Global X Funds. "The Global X SuperDividend™ ETF may be our most innovative ETF to date and we are pleased to see investors embracing SDIV from day one."

DISCLOSURE

Investing involves risk, including the possible loss of principal. International investing may involve risk of capital loss from unfavorable fluctuations in currency values, from differences in generally accepted accounting principles, or from economic or political instability in other nations. Emerging markets involve heightened risks related to the same factors as well as increased volatility and lower trading volume.  Narrowly focused investments may be subject to higher volatility. High yielding stocks are often speculative, high risk investments. These companies can be paying out more than they can support and may reduce their dividends or stop paying dividends at any time, which could have a material adverse effect on the stock price of these companies and the Fund's performance.
