iShares continually reviews its product range to ensure we’re meeting the evolving needs of our clients. Based on ongoing reviews, client feedback and limited interest in ex-U.S. sector strategies, we have decided to close 10 iShares ACWI ex-U.S. Sector ETFs.

The funds will continue to trade until market open on March 26, 2014. At that time, the funds will seek to liquidate holdings. Shareholders should expect to receive a cash distribution on or about April 1, 2014.
