ProShares Announces Zero Capital Gain Distributions for its 117 Equity and Fixed Income ETFs

ProShares, a premier provider of alternative exchange traded funds (ETFs), announced today that it expects that none of its 117 equity and fixed income ETFs will pay any 2012 capital gain distributions.

“Tax efficiency is an important benefit we can offer investors who are turning to ETFs for alternative strategies,” said Michael L. Sapir, Chairman and CEO of ProShare Advisors LLC, ProShares' investment advisor. “We are proud that for the third year in a row we expect that none of our shareholders will receive a capital gain distribution from ProShares.”

Capital gain distribution estimates are subject to change. The distribution dates for fourth quarter income dividends will be available at ProShares.com. Capital gain distribution and income dividend amounts will vary from year to year. For specific tax advice, ProShares recommends that investors seek advice from a qualified professional.

About ProShares

Offering the nation’s largest lineup of alternative ETFs,1 ProShares helps investors to go beyond the limitations of conventional investing and face today’s market challenges. Each ProShares ETF provides access to an alternative investment strategy delivered with the liquidity, transparency and cost effectiveness of an ETF. ProShares’ ETF lineup includes Global Fixed Income, Hedge Strategies, Geared (leveraged and inverse), and Inflation and Volatility ETFs.

1Source: Lipper, based on a worldwide analysis of all known providers of funds in these categories. The analysis covered ETFs and ETNs by the number of funds and assets (as of June 30, 2012).

ProShares' geared (leveraged and inverse) ETFs seek returns that are 3x, 2x, -1x, -2x or -3x the return of an index or other benchmark (target) for a single day, as measured from one NAV calculation to the next. Due to the compounding of daily returns, ProShares’ returns over periods other than one day will likely differ in amount and possibly direction from the target return for the same period. Investors should monitor their holdings consistent with their strategies, as frequently as daily. For more on correlation, leverage and other risks, please read the prospectus.

Investing involves risk, including the possible loss of principal. ProShares are non-diversified and entail certain risks, including risk associated with the use of derivatives (swap agreements, futures contracts and similar instruments), imperfect benchmark correlation, leverage and market price variance, all of which can increase volatility and decrease performance. For more on correlation, leverage and other risks, please read the prospectus. There is no guarantee any ProShares ETF will achieve its investment objective.

Carefully consider the investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses of ProShares before investing. This and other information can be found in their summary and full prospectuses. Read them carefully before investing. Obtain them from your financial adviser or broker/dealer representative or by visiting ProShares.com.

ProShares are distributed by SEI Investments Distribution Co., which is not affiliated with the funds' advisor or sponsor.
