Market Vectors ETF Trust Announces Expiration Of Successful Exchange Offers For Six Merrill Lynch-Sponsored HOLDRS

Additionally, the new ETFs may include both domestic and U.S.- listed foreign companies. This feature allows for greater industry representation compared to many industry-focused indices which include U.S. domiciled companies only. Many highly recognizable companies in these industries are based outside of the U.S., particularly in Oil Services, Semiconductor and Pharmaceutical.

The indices are capitalization-weighted and require constituents to be listed on a U.S. exchange and derive the majority of their revenues from their respective industry. Each index will have 25 constituents with weightings rebalanced quarterly.

The launch of these ETFs underscores Van Eck’s commitment to industry-focused investment themes and the ongoing evolution of the firm’s product offerings. Van Eck currently offers a broad lineup of specialized hard asset ETFs as well as industry ETFs focused on global gaming, environmental services and mortgage REITs. In addition, it offers international equity, fixed income and municipal bond ETFs.

Each of the new Market Vectors ETFs carry a gross expense ratio of 0.47% and a net expense ratio of 0.35%, with expenses capped at 0.35% at least until May 1, 2013 (excludes certain expenses, such as interest).

About Market Vectors

Founded in 1955, Van Eck Global was among the first U.S. money managers helping investors achieve greater diversification through global investing. Today, the firm continues this tradition by offering innovative, actively managed investment choices in hard assets, emerging markets, precious metals including gold, and other alternative asset classes. Van Eck Global has offices around the world and manages approximately $30.8 billion in investor assets as of September 30, 2011.

Market Vectors exchange-traded products have been offered by Van Eck Global since 2006 and span many asset classes, including equities, municipal bonds and other fixed income as well as currencies. The Market Vectors family currently totals $21.7 billion in assets under management, making it the sixth largest ETF family in the U.S. and the ninth largest worldwide as of September 30, 2011.
