The 30-day median bid/ask spread represents the NBBO (national best bid and best offer) at the end of each 10 second interval of each trading day during the last 30 calendar days (i.e., 9:30:00 to 9:30:09AM EST all the way through 3:59:50 to 3:59:59PM EST) for the ETF. The spread of each NBBO (difference between the bid and ask) is divided by the midpoint of the NBBO (average of the bid and ask). The median of those values over the trailing 30 calendar days is shown as a percentage. Fund shares commenced trading on 09/14/2022. Until the time the Fund has been active for 30 days, Median Bid/Ask Spread will reflect rolling data for the number of days the Fund has been active.

Shares of any ETF are bought and sold at market price (not NAV) and may trade at a discount or premium to NAV. Shares are not individually redeemable from the Fund and may be only be acquired or redeemed from the Fund in creation units. Brokerage commissions will reduce returns.

Market Price is the official closing price as of the end of the prior business day from the primary listing exchange.

The performance shown represents past performance and does not guarantee future results. Current performance may be lower or higher than the performance information shown. The investment return and principal value of an investment in the Portfolio will fluctuate, so that shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost. Performance assumes reinvestment of distributions and does not account for taxes.

Investors should consider the investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses of the Fund/Portfolio carefully before investing. Please read the prospectus and/or summary prospectus carefully before investing.

Market returns are based on the midpoint of the bid/ask spread at 4 p.m. ET and do not represent the returns an investor would receive if shares were traded at other times.

The net asset value (NAV) price is the value of one share of the Portfolio as of the date listed. The NAV does not take into account any initial sales charges that may apply when shares are purchased or redemption charges when shares are sold; if these sales charges were reflected, the Portfolio’s quoted performance would be lower. The NAV change is the change in value of one share of the Portfolio from the prior day’s value.

Total Returns

Because ETFs trade like stocks at current market prices, shareholders may pay more than a fund’s NAV when purchasing fund shares and may receive less than a fund’s NAV when selling fund shares. Before investing, consider the funds’ investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses. Review the prospectus or summary prospectus now, or talk to your financial advisor. Read it carefully before investing.

Premium or discount is the positive or negative difference between the market price of an ETF share and the ETF’s current NAV per share, expressed as a percentage of the ETF’s current NAV per share. Fund shares commenced trading on 09/14/2022. Premium/Discount data will be available following the first calendar quarter of the Fund’s initial operations.

Distribution rate if monthly should have disclosure: The distribution yield for monthly paying Funds is calculated by annualizing actual dividends distributed for the monthly period ended on the date shown and dividing by the net asset value on the last business day for the same period.

Distribution yield is calculated on a 30-day rolling basis by annualizing the average of the dividends distributed over the most recent 30-day period and dividing that figure by the current NAV. For the AB Bond Inflation Strategy Fund and the AB Municipal Bond Inflation Strategy Fund, distribution yield is calculated by annualizing the most recent monthly dividend distribution and dividing that figure by the current NAV. The distribution yield calculation does not include long-term or short-term capital gains distributions.

The reinvest price is the net asset value (NAV) price. The NAV price is the value of one share of the Fund as of the Ex Date. The NAV does not take into account any sales charges that may apply when shares are purchased or redeemed.

Holdings and characteristics shown include underlying investments of pooled vehicles.

The Fund’s/Portfolio’s holdings (including derivatives) are expressed as a percentage of total investments and may vary over time. They are provided for informational purposes only and should not be deemed as a recommendation to buy or sell the securities mentioned.

Risks To Consider

Investing in ETFs 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. For copies of our prospectus or summary prospectus, which contain this and other information, visit us online at www.alliancebernstein.com or contact your AB representative. Please read the prospectus and/or summary prospectus 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.

Bond Risk: The Fund is subject to the same risks as the underlying bonds in the portfolio such as credit, prepayment, call and interest rate risk. As interest rates rise the value of bond prices will decline.

Below Investment Grade Securities Risk: Investments in fixed-income securities with lower ratings (a/k/a junk bonds) are subject to a higher probability that an issuer will default or fail to meet its payment obligations. These securities may be subject to greater price volatility due to such factors as specific municipal or corporate developments and negative performance of the junk bond market generally and may be more difficult to trade than other types of securities.

Municipal Market Risk: Economic conditions, political or legislative changes, public health crises, uncertainties related to the tax status of municipal securities, or the rights of investors in these securities may negatively impact the yield or value of a municipal security.

Tax Risk: The U.S. Government and the U.S. Congress may periodically consider changes in federal tax law that could limit or eliminate the federal tax exemption for municipal bond income, which would in effect reduce the income received by shareholders from the Fund by increasing taxes on that income.

Derivatives Risk: Derivatives may be more sensitive to changes in market conditions and may amplify risks.

New Fund Risk: The Fund is a recently organized, giving prospective investors a limited track record on which to base their investment decision.

Bloomberg Municipal Bond Index represents the performance of the long-term tax-exempt bond market consisting of investment-grade bonds.
