Direxion Announces Reverse Splits of TMF and LABU

–News Direct–

Direxion has announced it will execute a reverse split of the issued and outstanding shares of the Direxion Daily 20+ Year Treasury Bull 3X Shares (Ticker: TMF) and the Direxion Daily S&P Biotech Bull 3X Shares (Ticker: LABU) (each, a Fund and collectively, the Funds). The total market value of the shares outstanding will not be affected as a result of these splits, except with respect to the redemption of fractional shares, as outlined below.

After the close of the markets on December 1, 2023, each Fund will effect reverse splits of its issued and outstanding shares as follows:

Fund Name

Direxion Daily 20+ Year Treasury Bull 3X Shares

1 for 10

90%

Direxion Daily S&P Biotech Bull 3X Shares

1 for 20

As a result of these reverse splits, every ten or twenty shares of a Fund will be exchanged for one share as indicated in the table above. Accordingly, the total number of the issued and outstanding shares for a Fund will decrease by the approximate percentage indicated above. In addition, the per share net asset value (NAV) and next days opening market price will be approximately ten- or twenty-times higher for the Funds. Shares of the Funds will begin trading on the NYSE Arca, Inc. (the NYSE Arca) on a split-adjusted basis on December 4, 2023.

The next days opening market value of the Funds issued and outstanding shares, and thus a shareholders investment value, will not be affected by the reverse splits. The tables below illustrate the effect of a hypothetical one-for-ten or one-for-twenty reverse split anticipated for the Funds:

Redemption of Fractional Shares and Tax Consequences of the Reverse Split

As a result of the reverse splits, a shareholder of a Funds shares potentially could hold a fractional share. However, fractional shares cannot trade on the NYSE Arca. Thus, a Fund will redeem for cash a shareholders fractional shares at the Funds split-adjusted NAV as of the Record Date. Such redemption may have tax implications for those shareholders and a shareholder could recognize a gain or loss in connection with the redemption of the shareholders fractional shares. Otherwise, the reverse splits will not result in a taxable transaction for holders of Fund shares. No transaction fee will be imposed on shareholders for such redemption.

Odd Lot Unit

Also as a result of the reverse splits, a Fund may have outstanding one aggregation of less than 50,000 shares to make a creation unit, or an odd lot unit. Thus, a Fund will provide one authorized participant with a one-time opportunity to redeem the odd lot unit at the split-adjusted NAV or the NAV on such date the authorized participant seeks to redeem the odd lot unit.

The Direxion Shares ETF Trusts transfer agent will notify the Depository Trust Company (DTC) of the reverse split and instruct DTC to adjust each shareholders investment(s) accordingly. DTC is the registered owner of the Funds shares and maintains a record of each Funds record owners.
