VanEck Announces Preliminary Yearend Distribution Estimates for VanEck Vectors Income ETFs

Share:

VanEck announced today preliminary yearend distribution estimates for
its VanEck Vectors® income exchange-traded funds.

Please note that these yearend estimates were made as of October 31,
2018 based upon the best information available and may be subject to
significant change based on a number of factors, including but not
limited to changes in the number of shares outstanding, changes in
income that may occur prior to record date, and certain tax adjustments
and reclassifications. These factors may also result in some VanEck
Vectors ETFs which currently show no estimated income or capital gain
distributions making a distribution at yearend. VanEck strongly urges
shareholders to consult with their tax adviser regarding the tax
consequences of these distributions. You should not make investment
decisions based on this information.

Fixed income investments are subject to interest rate risk, credit risk,
the risk that the issuer of a bond will fail to pay interest and
principal in a timely manner, or that negative perceptions of the
issuer's ability to make such payments will cause the price of that bond
to decline. Bonds and bond funds will decrease in value as interest
rates rise. In addition when interest rates fall income may decline.

Important Disclosures

IRS Circular 230 disclosure: VanEck does not provide
legal, tax or accounting advice. Any statement contained in this
communication concerning U.S. tax matters is not intended or written to
be used, and cannot be used, for the purpose of avoiding penalties
imposed on the relevant taxpayer. Shareholders or potential shareholders
of the VanEck Vectors ETFs should obtain their own independent tax
advice based on their particular circumstances.

All registered investment companies, including VanEck Vectors ETFs, are
obliged to distribute portfolio gains to shareholders at yearend
regardless of performance. Trading VanEck Vectors ETFs will also
generate tax consequences and transaction expenses. The information
provided is not intended to be tax advice. Tax consequences of income
distributions may vary by individual taxpayer. There is no guarantee
that income will be paid.

To receive a distribution, you must have been a registered shareholder
of the relevant VanEck Vectors ETFs on the record date. Distributions
are paid to shareholders on the payment date. Past distribution are not
indicative of future distributions.

The "Net Asset Value" (NAV) of an ETF is determined at the close of each
business day, and represents the dollar value of one share of the ETF;
it is calculated by taking the total assets of an ETF subtracting total
liabilities, and dividing by the total number of shares outstanding. The
NAV is not necessarily the same as an ETF's intraday trading value.
Investors should not expect to buy or sell shares at NAV. Total returns
are based upon closing "market price" (price) of the ETF on the dates
listed.

Fund shares are not individually redeemable and will be issued and
redeemed at their NAV only through certain authorized broker-dealers in
large, specified blocks of shares called "creation units" and otherwise
can be bought and sold only through exchange trading. Shares may trade
at a premium or discount to their NAV in the secondary market. You will
incur brokerage expenses when trading Fund shares in the secondary
market.

Investing involves substantial risk and high volatility, including
possible loss of principal. Bonds and bond funds will decrease in value
as interest rates rise. An investor should consider the investment
objective, risks, charges and expenses of a Fund carefully before
investing. To obtain a prospectus and summary prospectus, which contains
this and other information, call 800.826.2333 or visit
vaneck.com.
Please read the prospectus and summary prospectus carefully before
investing.
