Important Disclosures

An investor should carefully consider the investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses before investing. For a flyer with this and other information, call 1-866-759-5679 or visit www.alpsfunds.com. Read the prospectus carefully before investing.

Shares are not individually redeemable. Investors buy and sell stocks in a secondary market. Only market makers or “authorized participants” can trade directly with the Fund, generally in blocks of 5,000, 25,000 or 50,000 shares.

All investments are subject to risk, including loss of money and possible loss of all principal invested. Additional information regarding the risks of this investment is available in the prospectus.

Investments in Master Limited Partnerships (MLP) securities involve risks that differ from an investment in common stock. MLPs are controlled by their general partners, who generally have conflicting interests and limited fiduciary duties to the MLP, which may allow the general partner to favor its own interests over the MLPs.

Part of the benefits you should derive from the Fund’s investment in MLPs largely depends on whether MLPs are treated as partnerships for federal income tax purposes. As a partnership, an MLP does not have to pay federal income tax at the entity level. Accordingly, treatment of one or more MLPs as a corporation for federal income tax purposes may affect the ability of the Fund to achieve its investment objective and may reduce the amount of cash available to pay or pay you. distribute. Legislative, judicial or administrative changes and differing interpretations, possibly on a retroactive basis, could adversely impact the value of an investment in MLPs and, therefore, the value of your investment in the Fund.

The Fund invests primarily in a particular industry and may experience greater volatility than a fund investing in a broader range of industries.

Investments in the energy infrastructure sector are subject to: reduced volumes of natural gas or other energy products available for transportation, processing or storage; changes in the regulatory environment; extreme weather conditions and; an increase in interest rates which could lead to an increase in the cost of capital and push investors towards other investment opportunities.

All K-1s are received and processed by the Alerian MLP ETF. The Alerian MLP ETF distributes a single Form 1099 to its shareholders. This notice is provided to you for informational purposes only and should not be considered tax advice. Please consult your tax advisor for further assistance.

If, due to changes in tax laws, a Portfolio MLP is deemed to be a corporation rather than a partnership for federal income purposes, then the income would be subject to federal tax at the level of the MLP. This would reduce the amount of cash available for distribution to the fund, which could lead to a reduction in the value of the fund. The Fund is taxed as an ordinary corporation for federal income purposes, which reduces the net asset value of the Fund Units by the accumulation of any deferred tax liability. Depending on the taxes paid by the fund as a result of income and/or gains from investments and/or the sale of MLP interests, the return on an investment in the fund will be reduced. This differs from most investment companies, which choose to be treated as “regulated investment companies” to avoid paying entity-level income taxes. The ETF is taxed as an ordinary corporation and is subject to US federal income tax on taxable income at the corporate tax rate (currently as high as 21%), as well as state and local.

For federal income tax purposes, the Fund is classified as an ordinary taxable corporation or a so-called subchapter “C” corporation. As a “C” corporation, the Fund recognizes a deferred tax liability for its future tax liability associated with capital appreciation of its investments and distributions received by the Fund on equity securities of limited partnerships principal considered a return of capital and for any net operating gains. The Fund’s accrued deferred tax liability, if any, is reflected daily in the Fund’s net asset value per share. Deferred tax expense/(benefit) represents an estimate of the potential tax expense/(benefit) of the Fund if it were to recognize unrealized gains/(losses) in the portfolio. An estimate of the deferred tax expense/(benefit) depends on the net income/(loss) of the Fund’s investments and the realized and unrealized gains/(losses) on the investments, and such expenses may vary significantly from year to year and day to day depending on the nature of the Fund’s investments, the performance of those investments and general market conditions. Therefore, any estimate of deferred tax expense/(profit) cannot be reliably forecast from year to year.

The Fund employs a “passive management” – or indexing – investment approach and seeks investment results that correspond (before fees and expenses) generally to the performance of its underlying index. Unlike many investment companies, the Fund is not “actively” managed. Therefore, it would not necessarily sell or buy a security unless that security is removed from or added to the underlying index, respectively.
