Global X ETFs Announces ETF Reverse Stock Split of POTX

NEW YORK, May 20, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Global X ETFs, the New York-based provider of exchange-traded funds (ETFs), today announced a reverse split of the Global X Cannabis ETF (POTX) ("the Fund").

Effective after market close on June 10, 2022, the Fund will affect a reverse split at a ratio of 1:6. The reverse split will increase the price per share of the Fund with a proportionate decrease in the number of shares outstanding. For example, every six pre-split shares will result in receipt of one post-split share, which will be priced six times higher than the net asset value (NAV) of a pre-split share.

Illustration of Reverse Split

The following table shows the effect of a hypothetical 1:6 reverse split:

Fractional Shares

As a result of the reverse split, a shareholder of the Fund's shares could potentially hold fractional shares. In this case, a Fund will redeem the cash value (at NAV) of any fractional shares resulting from the reverse split. Receipt of cash in lieu of fractional shares may result in a taxable event to shareholders, and each shareholder should consult with the shareholder's own tax advisers with respect to the appropriate treatment of the receipt of such cash payment.
