ProShares Announces ETF Share Splits

The splits will decrease the price per share of each fund with a proportionate increase in the number of shares outstanding. For example, for the 2-for-1 splits, every pre-split share held by a shareholder will result in the receipt of two post-split shares, which will be priced at half of the net asset value ("NAV") of a pre-split share.

Illustration of a Split

The following table shows the effect of a hypothetical 2-for-1 split:

    Period # of Shares Owned   Hypothetical NAV   Value of Shares
Pre-Split   100   $100.00   $10,000.00
Post-Split   200   $50.00   $10,000.00
     

Reverse Splits

Six funds will reverse split shares 1-for-4.
