Rationale for Methodology Change

Solactive has determined that the Subindustry (Level 6) “Peer-to-Peer Lodging” of the FactSet Revere Business Industry Classification System (“RBICS”) is added to the “Travel Agencies” category. This decision was caused by an enhancement of the RBICS methodology in July 2023. In the enhancement, the “Peer-to-Peer Lodging” Subindustry was introduced which led to a redefinition of the “Travel Agencies” Subindustry.
