1The "Net Asset Value" (NAV) of all ETFs is determined at the close of each business day, and represents the value of one share of the fund; it is calculated by taking the total assets of the fund, subtracting total liabilities, and dividing by the total number of shares outstanding. The NAV is not necessarily the same as the ETF 's intraday trading value. Investors should not expect to buy or sell ETF shares at NAV.

3These figures represent averages. Yield to Worst measures the lowest of either yield-to-maturity or yield-to-call date on every possible call date. Yield to Maturity is the annualized return on a bond held to maturity. Effective Duration measures a bond's sensitivity to interest rate changes that reflects the change in a bond's price given a change in yield. This duration measure is appropriate for bonds with embedded options. Modified Duration measures a bond's sensitivity to interest rate changes that reflects the change in a bond's price given a change in yield. Spread Duration measures a bond's price sensitivity to a 100 basis point change to its option-adjusted spread. As the rate of the Treasury security in the option-adjusted spread increases, the rate of the option-adjusted spread also increases. Years to Maturity is the period of time for which a financial instrument remains outstanding. Maturity refers to a finite time period at the end of which the financial instrument will cease to exist and the principal is repaid. Coupon is measured by weighting the coupon of each bond by its relative size in the portfolio. Coupons are fixed percentages paid on a fixed-income security on an annual basis. Averages are market weighted. The Coupon and Yield to Worst do not represent the performance of the Fund. These statistics do not take into account fees and expenses associated with investments of the Fund.
