Swank Capital and Cushing® Asset Management Announce Rebalancing of The Cushing® Energy Supply Chain Index

Dallas, Texas (August 25, 2017) Swank Capital, LLC, and Cushing® Asset Management, LP, announce today an upcoming interim rebalancing of The Cushing® Energy Supply Chain Index (the “Index”). Per the Index’s methodology guide, the removal of an Index constituent from a Sub-Index without a named direct replacement necessitates the rebalancing of the Index. On August 24, 2017, S&P Dow Jones Indices announced that Index constituent E. I. du Pont de Nemours and Co. (NYSE: DD) will be removed from the S&P 500 Index (“SPX”) and, by extension, the S&P 500 Materials Index (“S5MATR”), a Sub-Index of the Index, after the markets close on July 31, 2017. The replacement named for DD will not be a member of S5MATR. After the markets close on July 31, 2017, the constituents of the Index will be rebalanced, and the changes in the table below will become effective on September 1, 2017.

It is further anticipated that Index constituent The Dow Chemical Company (NYSE: DOW), which is expected to acquire DD on July 31, 2017, will change its name to DowDuPont Inc. and trade under the ticker “DWDP”. DWDP will remain a member of both SPX and S5MATR and will remain a constituent of the Index at the same weight held by DOW immediately prior to the name change.
