5Index data prior to March 18, 2013 reflects that of the Ardour Solar Energy Index (SOLRXT). From March 18, 2013, forward, the index data reflects that of the Market Vectors Global Solar Energy Index (MVKWTTR). All Index history reflects a blend of the performance of the aforementioned Indexes AND IS NOT INTENDED FOR ANY THIRD PARTY USE. The Ardour Solar Energy IndexSM is a trademark of Ardour. Ardour neither sponsors nor endorses KWT and makes no warranty or representation as to the accuracy and/or completeness of this Index.
The table presents past performance which is no guarantee of future results and which may be lower or higher than current performance. Returns reflect temporary contractual fee waivers and/or expense reimbursements. Had the ETF incurred all expenses and fees, investment returns would have been reduced. Investment returns and ETF share values will fluctuate so that investors' shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost. ETF returns assume that dividends and capital gains distributions have been reinvested in the Fund at NAV.
The "Net Asset Value" (NAV) of a Market Vectors Exchange Traded Fund (ETF) is determined at the close of each business day, and represents the dollar value of one share of the fund; it is calculated by taking the total assets of the fund, subtracting total liabilities, and dividing by the total number of shares outstanding. The NAV is not necessarily the same as the ETF 's intraday trading value. Market Vectors ETF investors should not expect to buy or sell shares at NAV.
