VanEck Announces Preliminary Yearend Distribution Estimates for VanEck Vectors Income ETFs

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, 2017 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.

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 Please read the prospectus and summary prospectus carefully before investing.
