Bank of Montreal, the issuer of the ETNs ("Bank of Montreal" or the "Issuer"), has filed a registration statement (including pricing supplements, product supplements, a prospectus supplement and a prospectus) with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") about each of the offerings to which this website relates. Please read those documents and the other documents relating to these offerings that Bank of Montreal has filed with the SEC for more complete information about Bank of Montreal and these offerings. These documents may be obtained without cost by visiting EDGAR on the SEC website at www.sec.gov. Alternatively, Bank of Montreal, any agent or any deal participating in these offerings will arrange to send the applicable pricing supplement, any applicable product supplement, the prospectus supplement and the prospectus if so requested by calling toll-free at 1-877-369-5412.

 

The ETNs are senior, unsecured debt obligations of Bank of Montreal, and are subject to Bank of Montreal’s credit risk.

 

The leveraged and inverse ETNs are intended to be daily trading tools for sophisticated investors to manage daily trading risks as part of an overall diversified portfolio. They are designed to achieve their stated investment objectives on a daily basis. You should proceed with extreme caution in considering an investment in those ETNs.

 

The ETNs do not guarantee any return of your investment. For example, with respect to some ETNs, if the closing Indicative Note Value or the Intraday Indicative Value (each as defined in the applicable pricing supplement) for the ETNs is equal to or less than $0 at any time during a relevant trading day, you will lose all of your investment in the ETNs. Even if the Index Closing Level has increased or decreased, as applicable, from the Initial Index Level, you may receive less than the principal amount of your ETNs upon a call, redemption, at maturity, or if you sell your ETNs, with the loss magnified by any leverage, each as described in more detail in the applicable pricing supplement.

 

Leverage (if applicable) increases the sensitivity of your ETNs to changes in the level of the applicable index. Investment suitability must be determined individually for each investor, and the ETNs are not suitable for all investors. The leveraged and inverse ETNs are not suitable for investors with longer-term investment objectives. You should regularly monitor your holdings of the ETNs to ensure that they remain consistent with your investment strategies. In particular, the leveraged and inverse ETNs should be purchased only by sophisticated investors who do not intend to hold the ETNs as a buy and hold investment, who are willing to actively and continuously monitor their investment and who understand the consequences of investing in and of seeking daily resetting investment results, which are leveraged as to some of the ETNs. Due to the effect of compounding, if the Indicative Note Value increases, any subsequent adverse change in the applicable index level will result in a larger dollar reduction from the Indicative Note Value than if the Indicative Note Value remained constant; the converse is also true. The ETNs are subject to intraday purchase risk. The Indicative Note Value of the leveraged and inverse ETNs is reset daily, and the leverage or exposure of the ETNs during any relevant trading day may be greater than or less than that contemplated by the name of a particular leveraged ETN.

 

The ETNs are subject to a call right, which may adversely affect the value of, or your ability to sell, your ETNs. Most of the ETNs do not pay any interest, and you will not have any ownership rights in the applicable index constituents. The Index Closing Level used to calculate any payment by the Issuer of the ETNs may be different from the Index Closing Level at other times during the term of the ETNs. There are restrictions on your ability to request a redemption of the ETNs, and you will not know the amount due upon redemption at the time you elect to request that the ETNs be redeemed. The Issuer may sell additional ETNs, but is under no obligation to do so.

 

Market disruptions may adversely affect your return. Significant aspects of the tax treatment of the ETNs are uncertain.

 

The Intraday Indicative Value and the Indicative Note Value are not the same as the closing price or any other trading price of the ETNs in the secondary market. There is no assurance that your ETNs will be listed or continue to be listed on a securities exchange, and they may not have an active trading market. The value of the ETNs in the secondary market may be influenced by many unpredictable factors.

 

The Issuer or its affiliates may have economic interests that are adverse to those of the holders of the ETNs as a result of its business, hedging and trading activities, or as Calculation Agent (as defined in the applicable pricing supplement) of the ETNs, and may have published research, expressed opinions or provided recommendations that are inconsistent with investing in or holding the ETNs, and may do so in the future.

 

Each index has limited actual historical information. The Index Calculation Agent (as defined in the applicable pricing supplement), may adjust the index in a way that may affect its level, and may, in its sole discretion, discontinue the public disclosure of the intraday index value and the end-of-day closing value of the index. The indices lack diversification and are vulnerable to fluctuations in the applicable sector. A limited number of index constituents may affect each Index Closing Level, and the Indices are not necessarily representative of their focus industry. An index constituent may be replaced upon occurrence of certain events. The manner in which each index selects its components may differ from how other index providers or market participants might do so.

 

Use of Hypothetical Back-Tested Data - The historical data of the Indices shown herein is from the dates displayed. Any index data shown prior to that date is hypothetical and a result of the application of the index methodology to historical data, and has inherent limitations. The creation of hypothetical data necessarily involves assumptions and cannot take into account the impact of financial risk in actual trading. Alternative modeling techniques or assumptions may produce different hypothetical back-tested information that might be more appropriate and that might differ significantly from the information presented herein. The hypothetical back-tested data herein should not be considered indicative of actual results that might be obtained from an investment in a financial instrument referencing the index.

 

Historical and hypothetical back-tested results are neither an indicator nor a guarantee of future index performance or the return of the ETNs.

 

Please see the “Risk Factors” section in the pricing supplement, any applicable product supplement, the prospectus supplement and the prospectus relating to the applicable offering.
