All or a portion of a distribution may consist of a return of capital (i.e., from your original investment). Shareholders should not assume that the source of a distribution from the Fund is net profit. Shareholders should note that return of capital will reduce the tax basis of their shares and potentially increase the taxable gain, if any, upon disposition of their shares.

SEC Yield: A standardized yield calculation created by the SEC that reflects the net income earned during a 30-day period.
Record Date: The date established for the purpose of determining the holders who are entitled to receive a distribution.
Payable Date: The date the distribution is scheduled to be paid.

Investing in the Fund carries certain risks. The value of the Fund may decrease in response to the activities and financial prospects of an individual security in the Fund’s portfolio. The Fund may be subject to substantial short-term changes. The Fund is non-diversified and may invest a greater percentage of its assets in a particular issue and may own fewer securities than other mutual funds. The Fund invests in the securities of foreign companies which are generally not subject to the same regulatory requirements and have different accounting, auditing and financial reporting standards from those applicable to U.S. companies. The Fund invests in lower-quality, non-investment grade bonds rated Baa or lower by Moody’s or BBB or lower by S&P (also known as “junk” bonds). Lower-quality debt securities involve greater risk of default or price changes due to changes in the credit quality of the issuer. A credit rating is the rating firms opinion on the general creditworthiness of an obligor, or the creditworthiness of an obligor with respect to a particular debt security or other financial obligation. These factors may affect the value of your investment.
