FEE WAIVER AGREEMENT

 

AGREEMENT made as of July 12, 2019 (the “Effective Date”), by and between Cambria Investment Management, L.P. (the “Adviser”) and Cambria ETF Trust, a Delaware statutory trust (the “Trust”), on behalf of each series of the Trust listed on Schedule A, as amended from time to time (each, a “Fund”).

 

WHEREAS, the Adviser serves as investment adviser to each Fund pursuant to an Investment Advisory Agreement with the Trust dated June 26, 2018 and effective with respect to each Fund as of the Effective Date (the “Advisory Agreement”); and

 

WHEREAS, the Adviser is entitled to a fee under the Advisory Agreement in exchange for providing advisory and other services, and paying all of the Trust’s expenses except those specifically excluded therein (the “Management Fee”); and

 

WHEREAS, the Trust and the Adviser each desire to reduce the Management Fee of each Fund for the term provided herein.

 

NOW THEREFORE, in consideration of the mutual covenants and agreements of the parties hereto and hereinafter set forth, the parties covenant and agree as follows:

 

1.             Fee Waiver. For the term of this Agreement, the Adviser agrees to reduce its Management Fee with respect to each Fund as indicated in Schedule A.

 

2.             Duration and Termination. This Agreement shall become effective as of the Effective Date with respect to each Fund and shall continue in effect through close of business on August 31, 2020 (the “Fee Waiver Term”). Thereafter, this Agreement may be renewed for additional periods as agreed to by the parties.

 

This Agreement may be terminated by:

 

(i) the Board of Trustees of the Trust, for any reason, at any time, or

(ii) the Adviser after the expiration of the Fee Waiver Term upon sixty (60) days’ written notice to the other party.

 

This Agreement shall automatically and immediately terminate with respect to a Fund if:

 

(i) the Adviser no longer serves as investment adviser to such Fund, or

(ii) in the event of an “assignment” (as defined in the Investment Company Act of 1940).

 

The termination of this Agreement with respect to any one Fund will not cause its termination with respect to any other Fund.
