ProFunds Announces Mutual Fund and VP Fund Share Splits

Bethesda, MD – October 11, 2019 – ProFunds, a leader in leveraged and inverse fund investing, announced today forward and reverse splits on the ProFunds and VP funds listed below. The forward and reverse splits will not change the value of a shareholder’s investment.

ProFunds Mutual Fund Reverse Splits

Two funds will reverse split at the following split ratios:

ProFund Investor Class Service Class Split Ratio
Oil Equipment & Services UltraSector OEPIX OEPSX 1:8
Short Nasdaq-100 SOPIX SOPSX 1:4

ProFunds VP Fund Reverse Splits

Four funds will reverse split at the following split ratios:

ProFund VP Split Ratio CUSIP
UltraShort Dow 30 1:8 74318X794
Short Nasdaq-100 1:4 743185589
Short Dow 30 1:4 74318X810
Short International 1:4 74318W796

All reverse splits will apply to shareholders of record as of the close of the markets on November 15, 2019. The funds will trade at the post-split prices on November 18, 2019. The ticker symbols and CUSIP numbers for the funds will not change.

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 a 1-for-4 reverse split, every four pre-split shares held by a shareholder will result in the receipt of one post-split share, which will be priced at four times the net NAV of a pre-split share.
