Past performance is no guarantee of future results. Investment returns and principal value will fluctuate with changes in market conditions. Investors' units, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost.

Principal Investment Strategy
The Trust’s investment strategy uses a quantitative selection process developed by Transparent Value, LLC (“Transparent Value”), an affiliate of the Sponsor, to help the Sponsor determine the constituents of the portfolio.
See “Investment Policies” in Part B of the prospectus for additional information.
The Trust’s portfolio is constructed and the securities are selected approximately seven business days prior to the initial date of deposit (the “Inception Date”) using the methodology described below. In constructing the Trust portfolio, 50 securities will be selected based on the following fundamentally-based quantitative criteria:
• Begin with all companies listed in the Dow Jones U.S. Top-Cap Value Total Stock Index, which is a combination of the Dow Jones U.S. Large-Cap Value Total Stock Index and the Dow Jones U.S. Mid-Cap Value Total Stock Market Index.
• Exclude companies with a price per share of less than $5 and more than $500.
• Exclude companies with a 30-day average daily traded value of less than $1 million.
• Exclude companies with an indicated dividend yield of 0. Indicated dividend yield is a company’s most recently announced dividend, annualized based on dividend frequency and divided by market price (abnormal or special dividends are not included).
• Exclude 20% of the companies with the lowest indicated dividend yield.
• Select the 100 companies according to the Required Business Performance® (“RBP®”) methodology described below that have the highest probability percentage.
• Select the top 50 companies by indicated dividend yield and weight the portfolio by indicated dividend yield, subject to a 5% cap for each individual security on the day the strategy generates the final portfolio. (A company’s weight in the portfolio is derived by dividing the indicated dividend yield of each company by the sum of all indicated dividend yields for the 50 selected companies). Please note that due to the fluctuating nature of security prices, the weighting of an individual security in the Trust may be greater than 5% of the portfolio after the portfolio selection date.
Required Business Performance® RBP® seeks to measure the performance that is implied in the price of a company’s stock. To determine the RBP® probability for a given company, the company’s required revenue (revenue that the company is required to generate over the next twelve months) is calculated through a ten-year forward discounted free cash flow (“FCF”) model. The ten-year forward FCF model includes the perpetuity growth rate, capital expenditures, operating margins and potentially scaling forward growth rates. With this required forward FCF and historical company performance from the past twelve quarters, a distribution curve is fit to the data and derives an RBP® probability (expressed as a percentage from 0 to 100%).
