ITEQ® will officially begin trading on the NYSE Arca at market open on
September 26, 2017. The Fund will continue trading as normal on Nasdaq
until the close of the market on September 25, 2017.

"We are thrilled to have ITEQ list on the NYSE," said Steven Schoenfeld,
Founder and Chief Investment Officer of BlueStar Indexes®, the firm that
created and manages the TA-BIGITech® index that ITEQ® tracks. "Israel's
dynamic technology companies are significantly contributing to
technological innovation around the world, and most investors are still
not fully aware of the importance of these stocks. We look forward to
expanding awareness of the Israeli Tech investment thesis with NYSE as
the primary listing for ITEQ®."

"The NYSE has been a valued partner and is the primary listing for many
of our products," said Samuel Masucci, CEO and Founder of ETFMG. "We
will continue to help develop quality products for the number one
marketplace for ETFs."

The change in listing will not affect shareholders of ITEQ®.

Carefully consider the Fund's investment objectives, risk factors,
charges, and expenses before investing. This and additional information

Read the prospectus carefully before investing.

Investing involves risk, including the possible loss of principal.
Shares of any ETF are bought and sold at market price (not NAV), may
trade at a discount or premium to NAV and are not individually redeemed
from the Fund. Brokerage commissions will reduce returns. Narrowly
focused investments typically exhibit higher volatility. Investment in
securities of Israeli companies involves risks that may negatively
affect the value of your investment in the Fund. Among other things,
Israel's economy depends on imports of certain key items, such as crude
oil, coal, grains, raw materials and military equipment. Foreign
investing involves special risks such as currency fluctuations and
political uncertainty. Funds that invest in smaller companies may
experience greater volatility. Funds that emphasize investments in
technology generally will experience greater price volatility.

ITEQ seeks to provide investment results that, before fees and expenses,
correspond generally to the total return performance of the
TASE-BlueStar Israel Global Technology Index, which tracks the
performance of exchange-listed Israeli technology operating companies.
It is not possible to invest directly in an index.

ETF Managers Group LLC is the investment adviser to the fund.

The fund is distributed by ETFMG Financial LLC. ETF Managers Group LLC
and ETFMG Financial LLC are wholly owned subsidiaries of Exchange Traded
Managers Group LLC (collectively, "ETFMG"). ETFMG Financial LLC is not
affiliated with BlueStar Indexes.
