2 The Fund’s adviser has contractually agreed to reduce its fees and/or absorb expenses of the Fund, until at least December 31, 2020 to ensure that total annual fund operating expenses after fee waiver and/or reimbursement (exclusive of any front-end or contingent deferred loads, taxes, brokerage fees and commissions, borrowing costs (such as interest and dividend expense on securities sold short), acquired fund fees and expenses, fees and expenses associated with investments in other collective investment vehicles or derivative instruments (including for example option and swap fees and expenses), or extraordinary expenses such as litigation) will not exceed 0.35% of the Fund. This fee waivers and expense reimbursements are subject to possible recoupment from the Fund in future years (within the three years after the fees have been waived or reimbursed), if such recoupment can be achieved within the lesser of the foregoing expense limits or those in place at the time of recapture. This agreement may be terminated only by the Trust’s Board of Trustees, on 60 days’ written notice to the Fund’s adviser.

Distribution Rate may include income, dividends, return of capital, or other distributions that are not considered short-term or long-term capital gains. Return of capital is considered a return of the investment principal and is not derived from net profits.

Past performance is no guarantee of future results. The performance data quoted here represents past performance. Current performance may be lower or higher than the performance data quoted above. Investment return and principal value will fluctuate, so that shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost.

Sage Funds are bought and sold at market price (not NAV) and are not individually redeemed from the fund. Brokerage commissions will reduce returns.

Market Price returns are based upon the midpoint of the bid/ask spread at 4:00 p.m. ET when NAV is normally determined for most Sage Funds, and do not represent the returns you would receive if you traded shares at other times.

Important Fund Information:

Investors should carefully consider the investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses of the Sage ESG Intermediate Credit ETF. This and other important information about the Fund is contained in the prospectus, which can be obtained by calling 888-724-3911. The prospectus should be read carefully before investing. The Fund is distributed by Northern Lights Distributors, LLC, Member FINRA/SIPC. Sage Advisory Services LTD Co. and Northern Lights Distributors, LLC are not affiliated.

Investing involves risk including possible loss of principal. There is no guarantee that the Fund will achieve its objectives. The Fund generally will invest at least 80% of its total assets in the component securities of the SAGE ESG Credit Index (the “Index”). The Index consists of corporate bonds selected from the Barclays Capital U.S. Intermediate Credit Bond Index that meet Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) criteria. The ESG investment strategy limits the types and number of investment opportunities available and, as a result, the strategy may underperform other strategies that do not have an ESG focus.

Investing involves risk including possible loss of principal. There is no guarantee that the Fund will achieve its objectives.

ETF shares are not redeemable with the issuing fund other than in large Creation Unit aggregations. Instead, investors must buy or sell ETF Shares in the secondary market with the assistance of a stockbroker. In doing so, the investor may incur brokerage commissions and may pay more than net asset value (“NAV”) when buying and receive less than NAV when selling. The NAV of the Fund’s shares is calculated each day the national securities exchanges are open for trading, normally 4:00 p.m. Eastern time. Shares are bought and sold at market price (closing price) not NAV. Market price returns are based on the midpoint of the bid/ask spread at 4:00 pm Eastern Time (when NAV is normally determined for most ETFs) and do not represent the returns you would receive if you traded shares at other times.
