VanEck Announces Preliminary Yearend Distribution Estimates for VanEck Vectors Equity ETFs

November 16, 2018

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov 16, 2018--VanEck announced today preliminary yearend distribution estimates for its VanEck Vectors ® equity exchange-traded funds.

Please note that these yearend estimates were made as of October 31, 2018 based upon the best information available and may be subject to significant change based on a number of factors, including but not limited to changes in the number of shares outstanding, changes in income that may occur prior to record date, and certain tax adjustments and reclassifications. These factors may also result in some VanEck Vectors ETFs which currently show no estimated income or capital gain distributions making a distribution at yearend. VanEck strongly urges shareholders to consult with their tax adviser regarding the tax consequences of these distributions. You should not make investment decisions based on this information.

** The ETF pays a quarterly scheduled income distribution; therefore, no estimate is provided.

Due to yearend tax adjustments, the December distributions may be different than the regular quarterly distributions paid during the year.

The “Net Asset Value” (NAV) of an ETF is determined at the close of each business day, and represents the dollar value of one share of the ETF; it is calculated by taking the total assets of an ETF subtracting total liabilities, and dividing by the total number of shares outstanding. The NAV is not necessarily the same as an ETF’s intraday trading value. Investors should not expect to buy or sell shares at NAV. Total returns are based upon closing “market price” (price) of the ETF on the dates listed.

Fund shares are not individually redeemable and will be issued and redeemed at their NAV only through certain authorized broker-dealers in large, specified blocks of shares called “creation units” and otherwise can be bought and sold only through exchange trading. Shares may trade at a premium or discount to their NAV in the secondary market. You will incur brokerage expenses when trading Fund shares in the secondary market.

Investing involves substantial risk and high volatility, including possible loss of principal. Bonds and bond funds will decrease in value as interest rates rise. An investor should consider the investment objective, risks, charges and expenses of a Fund carefully before investing.
