Columbia Beyond BRICs ETF, Columbia EM Quality Dividend ETF, Columbia India Infrastructure ETF and Columbia India Small Cap ETF to Close and Liquidate


Columbia Beyond BRICs ETF (NYSE:BBRC), Columbia EM Quality
Dividend ETF (NYSE:HILO), Columbia India Infrastructure ETF
(NYSE:INXX) and Columbia India Small Cap ETF (NYSE Arca:
) today announced that each will be closed, and their respective
assets will be liquidated to shareholders on or about June 21, 2019, as
discussed below.

The last date for authorized participants to transact in creation units
of Columbia Beyond BRICs ETF, Columbia EM Quality Dividend ETF, Columbia
India Infrastructure ETF and Columbia India Small Cap ETF (the
Liquidating ETFs) will be June 14, 2019.

The last day of trading in shares of the Liquidating ETFs on the NYSE
Arca exchange is expected to be June 14, 2019, after which the
Liquidating ETFs will no longer engage in any business activities except
for the purpose of winding up their business affairs, including selling
portfolio assets to raise cash for the liquidations, discharging or
making reasonable provision for the payment of all their liabilities,
and liquidating and distributing their respective remaining assets to
Liquidating ETF shareholders.

Shareholders may sell their shares on or before June 14, 2019 and may
incur customary brokerage charges. Shareholders who do not sell their
shares on or before June 14, 2019 will receive cash equal to the amount
of the net asset value of their respective shares as of the close of
business on June 21, 2019, which is the date the liquidating
distributions are expected to be paid (the Distribution Date). While
shareholders' proportionate interests (i.e., the number of ETF shares
owned) in a Liquidating ETF is fixed as of the close of business on June
14, 2019, the value of that interest may fluctuate, including decline,
through the Distribution Date. The liquidation distributions will be
made in cash. The Liquidating ETFs' investment manager will bear all
out-of-pocket expenses incurred on behalf of each Liquidating ETF
attributable to their liquidations.

Investing involves risks, including the risk of loss of
principal. Market risk may affect a single issuer, sector of the
economy, industry or the market as a whole. The fund is passively
and seeks to track the performance of an index. The fund may
not sell a poorly performing security unless it was removed from the index.
There is no guarantee that the index will achieve positive returns. Risk
exists that the index provider may not follow its methodology for
index construction. Errors may result in a negative fund performance.
The fund's net value will generally decline when the market value
of its targeted index declines. Foreign investments subject the
fund to risks, including political, economic, market, social and other
risks impacting a particular country, as well as to currency
instabilities and less stringent financial and accounting standards
generally applicable to U.S. issuers. These risks are enhanced for emerging
or frontier market issuers. Investment in or exposure to foreign
subjects the fund to currency fluctuation and risk of
loss. Investments in small- and mid-cap companies involve risks
and volatility greater than investments in larger, more established
companies. The fund concentrates its investments in issuers of
one or more particular industries to the same extent as the underlying
index. Concentration in the India region, where issuers tend to
be less developed than U.S. issuers, presents increased risk of loss
than a fund that does not concentrate its investments. Investments in a
narrowly focused sector such as infrastructure may exhibit higher
volatility than investments with a broader focus. Although the fund's
shares are listed on an exchange, there can be no assurance that
an active, liquid or otherwise orderly trading market for shares will be
established or maintained. Active market trading may increase
portfolio turnover, transaction costs and tracking error to the targeted
index. Dividend quality is not guaranteed and the amount, if any,
can vary over time. The fund may have portfolio turnover, which
may cause an adverse cost impact. There may be additional portfolio
turnover risk
as active market trading of the fund's shares may
cause more frequent creation or redemption activities that could, in
certain circumstances, increase the number of portfolio transactions as
well as tracking error to the Index and as high levels of transactions
increase brokerage and other transaction costs and may result in
increased taxable capital gains.
