Space has always captured human interest, but recently, the space economy has also captured commercial interest like never before. UFO, the Procure Space ETF, may provide diversification beyond the limitations of solely earthbound companies.

Principal Investment Strategies
The Fund has adopted an 80% policy to invest in companies that receive at least 50% of their revenue or profits from one or more segments of the space industry. Although there is no legal definition of “space”, a commonly accepted definition is that the edge of space begins at the Kármán line which is 100 kilometers (62 miles) above the Earth’s surface. This is approximately the point where there is not enough air to provide lift to a winged vehicle. This definition is supported by the Fédération Aéronautique Internationale (an international aeronautics and astronautics standards-setting body), as well as many other organizations. Under normal circumstances, the Fund will invest at least 80% of its total assets in securities that comprise the Underlying Index described below. This policy is “non-fundamental”, which means that it may be changed without the majority of the Fund’s outstanding shares as defined in the 1940 Act. The Fund will provide at least 60 days prior written notice of any changes in such non-fundamental policy with respect to investments of the types suggested by its name.
The Procure Space ETF (the “Fund”) seeks investment results that correspond generally to the performance, before the Fund’s fees and expenses, of an equity index called the “S-Network Space Index” (the “Underlying Index”) developed by S-Network Global Indexes (the “Index Provider”).
The Fund has licensed as its Underlying Index the S-Network Space Index which is designed to measure the performance of companies engaged in space-related industries. A company is considered to be in a space-related business if its product(s) either has as its essential purpose — or is dependent upon — space-based functions (the revenue produced by space related companies is referred to as “space revenues). In the case of companies that make products that go into space (such as launch vehicles), or companies that operate systems in space (such as satellites), the space-related nature of the business is clear. For companies whose products and services are solely used on the surface of the Earth, space must play an essential role in the business in order to be classified as “space-related”. For example, a GPS smartwatch is not a viable product without its GPS satellite connectivity, while a car with GPS navigation can still serve its basic function without that space-related perk. A company that exclusively sells the former type of product will be considered a pure-play space company that receives 100% of its revenue from space-related activities. A company selling a car with GPS would likely have so little value derived from the space component that it would be difficult to even measure, hence would not be classified as “space-related”. Space related industries include (a) rocket and satellite manufacturing and operation, (b) ground equipment manufacturing used with satellite systems, (c) space technology and hardware, (d) space-based imagery and intelligence services (“Space Industry Segments”), and (e) telecommunications, television and radio broadcasting. At least 80% of the index weight is allocated to companies that derive a majority of their revenues from the aforementioned industries.
The Underlying Index is an equity securities index created and developed by S-Network Global Indexes, Inc. (“Index Provider”), a developer and publisher of custom and proprietary indexes. The component companies of the Underlying Index are small-capitalization, medium capitalization and large capitalization equity securities listed on recognized stock exchanges in the Americas, Europe, Middle East, Africa, and Asia Pacific. The Underlying Index is considered to be “concentrated” in U.S. companies which account for approximately 60% of the Index components. The Underlying Index is a modified capitalization weighted, free float and space revenue percentage adjusted equity index that is created and maintained according to a rules-based methodology and a pre-determined selection process.
The Index Provider believes that in the future, additional companies engaged in other space-related industries may emerge. These industries could include (a) space colonization/infrastructure, (b) space resource exploration/extraction,(c) space-based military/defense systems, (d) space tourism, including transportation and hospitality and (e) space technologies that enable the space economy.
