SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Charles Schwab announced today that there will be no capital gains distributions in 2012 by any of the funds in the Schwab ETF™ family.

"We are extremely pleased to be able to deliver this tax efficiency to the growing number of clients who invest in ETFs, and consider it another of the important benefits that Schwab ETFs offer investors," said John Sturiale, vice president of product management for Charles Schwab & Co., Inc.

In September 2012, Schwab announced dramatic cuts to the expense ratios of all 15 Schwab ETFs, making them the lowest expense ratios in their respective Lipper categories1. Schwab's first eight ETFs are currently marking their three-year milestones, and two Schwab ETFs - Schwab U.S. Broad Market ETF™ (SCHB) and Schwab U.S. Large-Cap ETF™ (SCHX) - have now passed the $1 billion asset mark.

Schwab is an industry leader in serving ETF investors, with $150 billion in client ETF assets as of 11/30/12. The company launched its own Schwab ETFs in November 2009, becoming the first to introduce commission-free online trading2 of ETFs in client accounts. Since then, Schwab ETFs have grown to over $8.12 billion in assets under management, as of 11/30/12.

1 This claim is based on expense ratio data comparisons between Schwab and non-Schwab ETFs in their respective Lipper categories. Expense ratio data were obtained from the funds' prospectuses, data pulled as of 11/2/12. ETFs in the same Lipper category may track different indexes, have differences in holdings, and show different performance. Competitors may offer more than one ETF in a Lipper category. The non-Schwab ETFs shown represent the funds with the lowest expense ratio within their fund family in their respective Lipper category. Expense ratios are subject to change.

2 Restrictions Apply: Online trades of Schwab ETFs™ are commission-free at Schwab, while trades of third-party ETFs are subject to commissions. Broker-Assisted and Automated Phone trades are subject to service charges. Minimum $1,000 deposit is required to open most Schwab brokerage accounts. Waivers may apply. See the Charles Schwab Pricing Guide for details. All ETFs are subject to management fees and expenses. See the Charles Schwab Pricing Guide for more details. Any listed ETF might be traded with no commission through other broker-dealer trading platforms. Although Schwab ETFs have not paid capital gains distributions in the past, there can be no assurance that this will continue in the future

3 Strategic Insight, November 2012


Investors should consider carefully information contained in the prospectus, including investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses. You can request a prospectus by calling Schwab at 1-800-435-4000 or by visiting www.schwabetfs.com. Please read the prospectus carefully before investing.

Investment returns will fluctuate and are subject to market volatility, so that an investor's shares, when redeemed or sold, may be worth more or less than their original cost. Unlike mutual funds, shares of ETFs are not individually redeemable directly with the ETF.

Schwab ETFs are distributed by SEI Investments Distribution Co. (SIDCO). SIDCO is not affiliated with The Charles Schwab Corporation or any of its affiliates.
