NextShares is a trademark of NextShares Solutions LLC. Used with permission.

Shares of NextShares funds are normally bought and sold in the secondary market through a broker, and may not be individually purchased or redeemed from the fund. In the secondary market, buyers and sellers transact with each other, rather than with the fund. NextShares funds issue and redeem shares only in specified creation unit quantities in transactions by or through Authorized Participants. In such transactions, a fund issues and redeems shares in exchange for the basket of securities, other instruments and/or cash that the fund specifies each business day. By transacting in kind, a NextShares fund can lower its trading costs and enhance fund tax efficiency by avoiding forced sales of securities to meet redemptions. Redemptions may be effected partially or entirely in case when in-kind delivery is not practicable or deemed not in the best interest of shareholders. A fund's basket is not intended to be representative of the fund's current portfolio positions and may vary significantly from current positions. As exchange-traded securities, NextShares can operate with low transfer agency expenses by utilizing the same highly efficient share processing system as used for exchange-listed stocks and ETFs. Buying and selling NextShares may require payment of brokerage commissions and expose transacting shareholders to other trading costs. Frequent trading may detract from realized investment returns. The return on a shareholder's NextShares investment will be reduced if the shareholder sells shares at a greater discount or narrower premium to NAV than he or she acquired the shares.

Fund performance is sensitive to stock market volatility. Investment in foreign instruments or currencies can involve greater risk and volatility than U.S. investments because of adverse market, economic, political, regulatory, geopolitical or other conditions. No fund is a complete investment program, and you may lose money investing in a fund, including loss of principal. The Fund invests a significant portion of its assets in companies in the media industry. The Fund's shares may be more susceptible to government regulation, greater price volatility for the overall market, rapid obsolescence of products and services, intense competition, and strong market reactions to technological developments.

All investments are subject to risks, including possible loss of principal. Please consider the investment objectives, risk, charges and expenses of Gabelli NextShares before investing. Please carefully read a copy of the Gabelli NextShares prospectus or summary prospectus before investing, which contains this and other information about Gabelli NextShares; you can obtain a copy of the prospectus or summary prospectus by calling 800 422-3554, or visit our website at www.gabelli.com.
