Since its inception on November 3, 2015, ITEQ® has provided exposure to
leading Israeli technology companies like Check Point Software, Wix.com,
Nice System, Amdocs, and additional biotechnology, agricultural
technology and clean energy names, among other industries. As of today,
the Fund has net assets of $52.6 million.

"We are proud that the BlueStar Israel Technology ETF was
first-to-market in providing investors with exposure to the complete
universe of leading Israeli tech companies listed worldwide, and ITEQ®'s
growth reflects the critical role that Israeli technology plays in
transforming our world," stated Steven Schoenfeld, founder of BlueStar
Indexes®. "ITEQ®'s success in the U.S. is reinforced by the wide
acceptance of its BIGITech® benchmark by Israeli investors who consider
it their primary index for Israeli tech stocks."

"We are very happy to celebrate the 3 year mark with our partners at
BlueStar Indexes as ITEQ® continues to give U.S. direct access to the
innovative Israeli technology sector," said Sam Masucci, CEO of ETF
Managers Group.

ITEQ® tracks the BlueStar Israel Global Technology Index™, (BIGITech®),
the flagship benchmark for Israeli technology stocks, which includes 72
Israeli companies listed on seven exchanges worldwide. BIGITech® is also
tracked by three Israeli-listed index products with more than $70
million in assets. In tracking BIGITech®, ITEQ® provides diversified
exposure to the technology themes of the future, including artificial
intelligence, autonomous driving, CleanTech, CefenseTech, cybersecurity,
Agri-Tech and more.

Carefully consider the Fund's investment objectives, risk factors,
charges, and expenses before investing. This and additional information
can be found in the Fund's prospectus, which may be obtained by calling

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.

Past performance does not guarantee future results.

Fund holdings are subject to change at any time. For holdings
information, visit http://www.iteqetf.com/fund.

ITEQ seeks to provide investment results that, before fees and expenses,
correspond generally to the total return performance of the BlueStar
Israel Global Technology Index™(BIGITech®), 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®.
