NEW YORK, Nov. 29, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- KraneShares, a premier provider of ETFs, announced a three-for-one share split of the issued and outstanding shares of the KraneShares European Carbon Allowance ETF (ticker: KEUA). The split will not change the value of a shareholder's investment.
After the close of the markets on December 10, 2021 (the "Payable Date"), the Fund will effect a split of its issued and outstanding shares as follows:
KraneShares European Carbon Allowance ETF
3 for 1
As a result of these share splits, shareholders of the Fund will receive three shares for each share held of the Fund as indicated in the table above. Accordingly, the number of the Fund's issued and outstanding shares will increase by the approximate percentage indicated above.
All share splits will apply to shareholders of record as of the close of NYSE Arca, Inc. (the "NYSE Arca") on December 9, 2021 (the"Record Date"), payable after the close of the NYSE Arca on the Payable Date. Shares of the Fund will begin trading on the NYSE Arca on a split-adjusted basis on December 13, 2021 (the "Ex-Date"). On the Ex-Date, the opening market value of the Fund's issued and outstanding shares, and thus a shareholder's investment value, will not be affected by the share split. However, the per share net asset value ("NAV") and opening market price on the Ex-Date will be approximately one-third for the Fund. The table below illustrates the effect of a hypothetical three-for-one split on a shareholder's investment.
