1The Adviser has undertaken to reimburse the Fund to the extent that the aggregate annual operating expenses, including investment advisory fees and administration fees but excluding interest, taxes, brokerage commissions and other costs incurred in connection with the purchase or sale of portfolio securities, and extraordinary items, exceed that percentage of the average net assets of the Fund for the year, as determined by valuations made as of the close of each business day of the year, which is the most restrictive percentage provided by the state laws of the various states in which the shares of the Fund are qualified for sale or, if the states in which the shares of the Fund are qualified for sale impose no such restrictions, 2%. As of the date hereof, no such state law provision was applicable to the Fund. The Fund monitors its expense ratio on a monthly basis. If the accrued amount of the expenses of the Fund exceeds the expense limitation, the Fund creates an account receivable from the Adviser for the amount of such excess. Refer to the current Prospectus and Statement of Additional Information for other historical performance information.
