ProFund VP Split Ratio CUSIP
VP UltraShort NASDAQ-100 1:8 743185613
VP Short Emerging Markets 1:5 74318W838

Illustration of a Hypothetical 1-for-5 Reverse Split

The reverse splits will increase the price per share of each fund with a proportionate decrease in the number of shares outstanding. For example, for the 1-for-5 reverse split, every five pre-split shares held by a shareholder will result in the receipt of one post-split share, which will be priced at five times the net NAV of a pre-split share.

# of Shares Owned NAV Per Share Value of Shares
Pre-Split 1,000 $6 $6,000
Post-Split 200 $30 $6,000


Mutual Fund Forward Splits

Effective January 22, 2018, ProFunds will execute forward share splits on the following three funds at the split ratios listed below:

ProFund Investor Class Service Class Split Ratio
UltraMid-Cap UMPIX UMPSX 3:1
UltraBull ULPIX ULPSX 3:1
UltraNASDAQ-100 UOPIX UOPSX 3:1


Illustration of a Hypothetical 3-for-1 Forward Split

The split will decrease the price per share of the fund with a proportionate increase in the number of shares outstanding. For example, for a 3-for-1 split, every pre-split share held by a shareholder will result in the receipt of three post-split shares, which will be priced at one-third of the net asset value ("NAV") of a pre-split share.

# of Shares Owned NAV Per Share Value of Shares
Pre-Split 200 $30 $6,000
Post-Split 600 $10 $6,000
