Innovator ETFs Announces Closure of Suite of Stacker ETFs

CHICAGO, Aug. 31, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Innovator Capital Management, LLC (Innovator), pioneer and provider of the largest lineup of Defined Outcome ETFs, today announced its intention to close its October series of Stacker ETFs. Trading in the ETFs will be halted at the close of business on October 2nd.

The October series of Stacker ETFs includes the following three ETFs:

The closing of the ETFs coincides with the end of their respective outcome periods. Shareholders may sell their ETF shares at any point during trading hours prior to the market close on October 2nd. If investors do not sell their shares before trading is halted, the shares will be automatically redeemed. After shares are redeemed, shareholders will receive cash equal to the amount of the October 6th net asset value (NAV) of their shares. Payment will be made in the form of a liquidating distribution that is electronically credited to shareholders’ brokerage or other applicable financial-intermediary accounts.

Innovator launched the suite of Stacker ETFs seeking to provide investors a way of pursuing enhanced upside potential without taking on additional downside risk. Innovator believes its suite of Accelerated ETFs offers a way to pursue this objective with greater precision and efficiency.

Innovator also intends to close its January series of Stacker ETFs in early 2024. More information about that closure will be released in the coming months.

The combined assets under management in the six Stacker ETFs was $39 million as of August 30, 2023, representing 0.3% of Innovator’s total AUM.
