NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Apr 15, 2019--DWS Group today announced plans to close and liquidate two Xtrackers exchange-traded funds (ETFs) – Xtrackers Germany Equity ETF (Cboe: GRMY) and Xtrackers MSCI United Kingdom Hedged Equity ETF (NYSE Arca: DBUK).

DWS plans to close and liquidate these funds following a regular and ongoing process to review and evolve the Xtrackers product lineup to ensure the business continues to meet clients’ needs. The last day of trading is expected to be April 30, 2019. Creations will be accepted until that time. Proceeds of the liquidations are scheduled to be sent to shareholders on or about May 10, 2019.

When each ETF commences liquidation of its portfolio securities, each ETF may hold cash and securities that may not be consistent with the ETF’s investment objective and strategy. During this period, each ETF is likely to incur higher tracking error than is typical for the ETF.

Shareholders may sell their holdings of an ETF on the applicable stock exchange until the market close on April 30, 2019, and may incur typical transaction fees from their broker-dealer. At the time the liquidation of the ETFs is complete, shares of the ETFs will be individually redeemed. For investors that still hold shares as of May 10, 2019, each ETF will automatically redeem its shares for cash at the ETF’s current net asset value as of close of business on that date. Shareholders generally will recognize a capital gain or loss on the redemptions. The ETFs may or may not, depending upon each ETFs circumstances, pay one or more dividends or other distributions prior to or along with the redemption payments.

RISKS: Investing involves risk, including possible loss of principal. Stocks may decline in value. Bond investments are subject to interest-rate, credit, liquidity and market risks to varying degrees. When interest rates rise, bond prices generally fall. Foreign investing involves greater and different risks than investing in US companies, including currency fluctuations, less liquidity, less developed or less efficient trading markets, lack of comprehensive company information, political instability and differing auditing and legal standards. Emerging markets tend to be more volatile and less liquid than the markets of more mature economies, and generally have less diverse and less mature economic structures and less stable political systems than those of developed countries. Funds investing in a single industry, country or in a limited geographic region generally are more volatile than more diversified funds. Performance of a Fund may diverge from that of an Underlying Index due to operating expenses, transaction costs, cash flows, use of sampling strategies or operational inefficiencies. There are additional risks associated with investing in high-yield bonds, aggressive growth stocks, non-diversified/concentrated funds and small- and mid-cap stocks which are more fully explained in the prospectuses, as applicable. An investment in any Fund should be considered only as a supplement to a complete investment program for those investors willing to accept the risks associated with that fund. Please read the prospectus for more information.
