Strategy Shares Nasdaq 7HANDL™ Index ETF (HNDL) Declares First Monthly Distribution

Share:

HNDL is the First-of-Its-Kind Target Distribution ETF powered by
Nasdaq Dorsey Wright

Strategy Shares, a family of exchange traded funds (ETFs) focused on
bringing unique strategies to the ETF marketplace, today announced that
the Strategy Shares Nasdaq 7HANDL™ Index ETF (HNDL) has declared its
first monthly distribution.

Shareholders of record on Wednesday, February 14, will be paid a cash
distribution of $0.140292 per share by the ETF on Thursday, February
15th. This distribution rate supports our strategy's goal of providing a
7% annual distribution. The ex-dividend date of this distribution is
Tuesday, February 13, 2018.

Launched January 2018, the Strategy Shares Nasdaq 7HANDL™ Index ETF
(HNDL) powered by Nasdaq Dorsey Wright seeks to generate results that
correlate generally to the performance of an index within a new indexing
category called Target Distribution Indexes, and is designed to support
a 7.0% annual distribution rate. All or a portion of the distribution
may include a return of capital.

HNDL's investment strategy seeks results that correlate generally to the
performance of the Nasdaq 7HANDL™ Index, which was developed by Bryant
Avenue Ventures in partnership with Nasdaq and Dorsey Wright. The Nasdaq
7HANDL™ Index consists of a well-diversified, multi-asset portfolio of
low-cost ETFs and employs modest leverage in an amount equal to 23% of
the total portfolio. The Index seeks to offer the potential for high
monthly distributions while maintaining a stable net asset value over
time.

"There has been a proliferation of ETFs in recent years focused on
providing niche exposures, but there appears to be a lack of innovation
around developing client solutions that can aid an advisor's practice
management," said, Jerry Szilagyi, CEO of Strategy Shares. "We see an
industry ripe for innovation and Strategy Shares is committed to being a
part of the evolution of ETFs."

Investment in a fund of funds is subject to the risks and expenses of
the underlying funds. Diversification and asset allocation may not
protect against market risk or loss of principal. Certain sectors and
markets perform exceptionally well based on current market conditions
and the Nasdaq 7HANDL ETF can benefit from that performance. Achieving
such exceptional returns involves the risk of volatility and investors
should not expect that such results will be repeated. The use of
leverage can amplify the effects of market volatility on the fund's
share price and make the fund's returns more volatile. The use of
leverage may cause the fund to liquidate portfolio positions when it
would not be advantageous to do so in order to satisfy its obligations.
The use of leverage may also cause the fund to have higher expenses than
those of funds that do not use such techniques.

should not assume that the source of a distribution from the Fund is net
profit. Shareholders should note that return of capital will reduce the
tax basis of their shares and potentially increase the taxable gain, if
any, upon disposition of their shares.

Distribution Policy: In order to allow shareholders of the Fund to
realize a predictable, but not assured, level of cash flow, the Fund has
adopted a policy (which may be modified at any time by its Board of
Trustees) to pay monthly distributions on Fund shares at a target rate
that supports the strategy's annual distribution goal of approximately
7.0% on the Fund's per-share net asset value on the date of a
distribution's declaration. Shareholders receiving periodic payments
from the Fund may be under the impression that they are receiving net
profits. However, all or a portion of a distribution may consist of a
return of capital. Shareholders should not assume that the source of a
distribution from the Fund is net profit. For more information about the
Fund's distribution policy, please turn to "Additional Information About
the Fund's Principal Investment Strategies and Related Risks – Principal
Investment Strategies –Distribution Policy and Goals" section in the
Fund's Prospectus. For additional information on the Fund's distribution
