Investment Objective

BITI is designed to provide daily investment results, before fees, expenses, distributions, brokerage commissions and other transaction costs that endeavour to correspond to up to one-times (100%) the inverse (opposite) of the daily performance of an index that replicates the returns generated over time through long notional investments in Bitcoin Futures. The current Underlying Index of BITI is the Horizons Bitcoin Front Month Rolling Futures Index (Excess Return). BITI does not seek to achieve its stated investment objective over a period of time greater than one day.

Important Risk Considerations

The ETF is very different from most other exchange-traded funds. The ETF is an alternative mutual fund within the meaning of National Instrument 81-102 Investment Funds (“NI 81-102”), and is permitted to use strategies generally prohibited by conventional mutual funds, including with respect to the use of specified derivatives, the ability to employ leverage and borrow cash. While these strategies will only be used in accordance with the investment objectives and strategies of the ETF, during certain market conditions they may accelerate the risk that an investment in ETF Shares decreases in value.

The ETF is not a conventional investment, is highly speculative and is very different from other Canadian exchange traded funds. The ETF is designed to provide investment results that endeavour to correspond to up to one times (100%) the inverse (opposite) of the daily performance of the Horizons Bitcoin Front Month Rolling Futures Index (Excess Return) (the “Underlying Index”). The Underlying Index tracks Bitcoin Futures (as defined in the Glossary). The Underlying Index tracked by the ETF is highly volatile. As a result, the ETF should not be viewed as a stand-alone long term investment.

Given the speculative nature of bitcoin and the volatility of the bitcoin markets, there is considerable risk that the ETF will not be able to meet its investment objectives. An investment in the ETF is not intended as a complete investment program and is appropriate only for investors who have the capacity to absorb a loss of some or all of their investment. An investment in the ETF is considered high risk.

The performance of the Underlying Index to which the ETF is exposed, and therefore the performance of the ETF, can be expected to be very different from the spot prices of bitcoin on various crypto-asset trading venues (the “Bitcoin Prices”). The value of the Underlying Index may not be correlated to Bitcoin Prices. An investor should only consider an investment in the ETF if he or she understands all of the consequences of being negatively exposed to Bitcoin Futures.

Investors should monitor their investment in the ETF at least daily.

BITI, before fees and expenses, does not and should not be expected to return the precise inverse (i.e., up to -100%) of the return of its Underlying Index over any period of time other than daily.

The returns of the ETF over periods longer than one day will, under most market conditions, be in the opposite direction from the performance of its Underlying Index for the same period, and the returns of the ETF can, based on historical returns, generally be expected to be substantially similar to the inverse performance of its Underlying Index for the same period, when the ETF’s exposure is at -100% of the Underlying Index throughout the period. However, the deviation of returns of the ETF from the inverse performance of its Underlying Index can be expected to become more pronounced as the volatility of the Underlying Index, and/or the period of time, increases.

For a discussion of the risks associated with an investment in ETF Shares, see “Risk Factors”.

If at any time during which the ETF is seeking to provide one times (100%) the inverse (opposite) of the daily performance of the Underlying Index, the trading price of the front-month, or, when applicable, the frontmonth or second-month, Bitcoin Futures contract to which the ETF is exposed increases by 95% or more from the prior settlement price of that Bitcoin Futures contract, the ETF would be expected to lose all or substantially all of its net asset value (and any value remaining, if any, would immediately be held in cash or cash equivalents only). If at any time the ETF is seeking to provide exposure less than, one times (100%) the inverse (opposite) of the daily performance of the Underlying Index, the ETF may also lose all or substantially all of its net asset value if the trading price of the front-month, or, when applicable, the front-month or second-month, Bitcoin Futures contract to which the ETF is exposed increases by more than 100% from the prior settlement price of that Bitcoin Futures contract. An investment in ETF Shares of BITI is speculative, involves a high degree of risk and is only suitable for persons who are able to assume the risk of losing their entire investment.

Commissions, management fees and expenses all may be associated with an investment in exchange traded products managed by Horizons ETFs Management (Canada) Inc. (the "Horizons Exchange Traded Products"). The Horizons Exchange Traded Products are not guaranteed, their value changes frequently and past performance may not be repeated. Certain ETFs may have exposure to leveraged investment techniques that magnify gains and losses and which may result in greater volatility in value and could be subject to aggressive investment risk and price volatility risk. Such risks are described in the prospectus. The prospectus contains important detailed information about the ETF. Please read the relevant prospectus before investing.

The Horizons Exchange Traded Products include our BetaPro products (the “BetaPro Products”). The BetaPro Products are alternative mutual funds within the meaning of National Instrument 81-102 Investment Funds, and are permitted to use strategies generally prohibited by conventional mutual funds: the ability to invest more than 10% of their net asset value in securities of a single issuer, to employ leverage, and engage in short selling to a greater extent than is permitted in conventional mutual funds. While these strategies will only be used in accordance with the investment objectives and strategies of the BetaPro Products, during certain market conditions they may accelerate the risk that an investment in shares of a BetaPro Product decreases in value. The BetaPro Products consist of our Daily Bull and Daily Bear ETFs (“Leveraged and Inverse Leveraged ETFs”), Inverse ETFs (“Inverse ETFs”) and our BetaPro S&P 500 VIX Short-Term Futures™ ETF (the “VIX ETF”). Included in the Leveraged and Inverse Leveraged ETFs and the Inverse ETFs are the BetaPro Marijuana Companies 2x Daily Bull ETF (“HMJU”) and BetaPro Marijuana Companies Inverse ETF (“HMJI”), which track the North American MOC Marijuana Index (NTR) and North American MOC Marijuana Index (TR), respectively. The Leveraged and Inverse Leveraged ETFs and certain other BetaPro Products use leveraged investment techniques that can magnify gains and losses and may result in greater volatility of returns. These BetaPro Products are subject to leverage risk and may be subject to aggressive investment risk and price volatility risk, among other risks, which are described in their respective prospectuses. Each Leveraged and Inverse Leveraged ETF seeks a return, before fees and expenses, that is either up to, or equal to, either 200% or –200% of the performance of a specified underlying index, commodity futures index or benchmark (the “Target”) for a single day. Each Inverse ETF seeks a return that is –100% of the performance of its Target. Due to the compounding of daily returns a Leveraged and Inverse Leveraged ETF’s or Inverse ETF’s returns over periods other than one day will likely differ in amount and, particularly in the case of the Leveraged and Inverse Leveraged ETFs, possibly direction from the performance of their respective Target(s) for the same period. For certain Leveraged and Inverse Leveraged ETFs that seek up to 200% or up to or -200% leveraged exposure, the Manager anticipates, under normal market conditions, managing the leverage ratio as close to two times (200%) as practicable however, the Manager may, at its sole discretion, change the leverage ratio based on its assessment of the current market conditions and negotiations with the respective ETF’s counterparties at that time. Hedging costs charged to BetaPro Products reduce the value of the forward price payable to that ETF. Due to the high cost of borrowing the securities of marijuana companies in particular, the hedging costs charged to HMJI are expected to be material and are expected to materially reduce the returns of HMJI to unitholders and materially impair the ability of HMJI to meet its investment objectives. Currently, the manager expects the hedging costs to be charged to HMJI and borne by unitholders will be between 10.00% and 45.00% per annum of the aggregate notional exposure of HMJI’s forward documents. The hedging costs may increase above this range. The manager publishes on its website, the updated monthly fixed hedging cost for HMJI for the upcoming month as negotiated with the counterparty to the forward documents, based on the then current market conditions. The VIX ETF, which is a 1x ETF, as described in the prospectus, is a speculative investment tool that is not a conventional investment. The VIX ETF’s Target is highly volatile. As a result, the VIX ETF is not intended as a stand-alone long-term investment. Historically, the VIX ETF’s Target has tended to revert to a historical mean. As a result, the performance of the VIX ETF’s Target is expected to be negative over the longer term and neither the VIX ETF nor its target is expected to have positive long-term performance. BetaPro Bitcoin ETF (“HBIT”), and BetaPro Inverse Bitcoin ETF (“BITI”), which are a 1X ETF, and an up to -1X ETF, respectively, as described in the prospectus, are speculative investment tools that are not conventional investments. Their Target, an index which replicates exposure to rolling Bitcoin Futures and not the spot price of Bitcoin, is highly volatile. As a result, neither ETF is intended as a stand-alone investment. There are inherent risks associated with products linked to crypto-assets, including Bitcoin Futures. While Bitcoin Futures are traded on a regulated exchange and cleared by regulated central counterparties, direct or indirect exposure to the high level of risk of Bitcoin Futures will not be suitable for all types of investors. An investment in any of the BetaPro Products is not intended as a complete investment program and is appropriate only for investors who have the capacity to absorb a loss of some or all of their investment. Please read the full risk disclosure in the prospectus before investing. Investors should monitor their holdings in BetaPro Products and their performance at least as frequently as daily to ensure such investment(s) remain consistent with their investment strategies.

Horizons Total Return Index ETFs (“Horizons TRI ETFs”) are generally index-tracking ETFs that use an innovative investment structure known as a Total Return Swap to deliver index returns in a low-cost and tax-efficient manner. Unlike a physical replication ETF that typically purchases the securities found in the relevant index in the same proportions as the index, most Horizons TRI ETFs use a synthetic structure that never buys the securities of an index directly. Instead, the ETF receives the total return of the index through entering into a Total Return Swap agreement with one or more counterparties, typically large financial institutions, which will provide the ETF with the total return of the index in exchange for the interest earned on the cash held by the ETF. Any distributions which are paid by the index constituents are reflected automatically in the net asset value (NAV) of the ETF. As a result, the Horizons TRI ETF receives the total return of the index (before fees), which is reflected in the ETF’s share price, and investors are not expected to receive any taxable distributions. Certain Horizons TRI ETFs (Horizons Nasdaq-100 ® Index ETF and Horizons US Large Cap Index ETF) use physical replication instead of a total return swap. The Horizons Cash Maximizer ETF and Horizons USD Cash Maximizer ETF use cash accounts and do not track an index but rather a compounding rate of interest paid on the cash deposits that can change over time.

*The indicated rates of return are the historical annual compounded total returns including changes in per unit value and reinvestment of all dividends or distributions and do not take into account sales, redemption, distribution or optional charges or income taxes payable by any securityholder that would have reduced returns. The rates of return shown in the table are not intended to reflect future values of the ETF or returns on investment in the ETF. Only the returns for periods of one year or greater are annualized returns.
