(NYSE: AB) and AllianceBernstein L.P., a leading global investment management and research firm, announced today the launch of AB U.S. Large Cap Strategic Equities ETF (LRGC) as an active exchange-traded fund (ETF) on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE).

"With this new ETF, a broad range of clients will have access to a compelling active equity strategy delivered in a liquid, transparent and tax efficient vehicle."

Investing in securities involves risk and there is no guarantee of principal.
Investors should consider the investment objectives, risks, charges, and expenses of the Fund/Portfolio carefully before investing.

Shares of the ETF may be bought or sold throughout the day at their market price on the exchange on which they are listed. The market price of an ETF's shares may be at, above or below the ETF's net asset value ("NAV") and will fluctuate with changes in the NAV as well as supply and demand in the market for the shares. Shares of the ETF may only be redeemed directly with the ETF at NAV by Authorized Participants, in very large creation units. There can be no guarantee that an active trading market for the Fund's shares will develop or be maintained, or that their listing will continue or remain unchanged. Buying or selling the Fund's shares on an exchange may require the payment of brokerage commissions and frequent trading may incur brokerage costs that detract significantly from investment returns.
Equity Securities Risk: The Fund invests in publicly traded equity securities, and their value may fluctuate, sometimes rapidly and unpredictably, which means a security may be worth more or less than when it was purchased. Capitalization Risk: Investments in small- and mid-capitalization companies may be more volatile than investments in large-capitalization companies. Foreign (Non-U.S.) Investment Risk: Investments in securities of non-U.S. issuers may involve more risk than those of U.S. issuers. These securities may fluctuate more widely in price and may be more difficult to trade than domestic securities due to adverse market, economic, political, regulatory, or other factors. Non-Diversification Risk: The Fund may have more risk because it is "non-diversified", meaning that it can invest more of its assets in a smaller number of issuers. Accordingly, changes in the value of a single security may have a more significant effect, either negative or positive, on the Fund's net asset value than the NAV of a diversified fund. New Fund Risk: The Fund is a recently organized fund, giving prospective investors a limited track record on which to base their investment decision.
