Average Annual Total Returns
Total return describes the return to the investor after net operating expenses but before any sales charges are imposed. Lipper average is unmanaged, is based on the average return of all funds in this category, and does not take into consideration applicable sales charges. Unless noted otherwise, Lipper averages and index returns reflect performance beginning the closest month-end date to the Fund's inception. Benchmark since inception average is based on Class A inception date. SEC standardized return describes the return to the investor after net operating expense and maximum sales charges are imposed. All returns assume share price changes as well as the compounding effect of reinvested dividends and capital gains. Returns may reflect fee waivers and/or expense reimbursements. Without such, returns would be lower. All returns 1-year or less are cumulative.
Lipper Small-Cap Core Funds invest at least 75% of their equity assets in companies with market capitalizations (on a three-year weighted basis) below Lipper's U.S. Diversified Equity small-cap ceiling, have more latitude in the companies in which they invest, and typically have average price-to-earnings ratio, price-to-book ratio, and three-year sales-per-share growth value, compared to the S&P SmallCap 600 Index. The S&P SmallCap 600 Index is generally considered representative of small-sized U.S. companies. The Russell 2500TM Index measures the performance of the small- to mid-cap segment of the U.S. equity universe. The Index is a subset of the Russell 3000 Index. It includes approximately 2500 of the smallest securities based on a combination of their market cap and current index membership. The index and Russell are trademarks of the Frank Russell Company. An investment cannot be made directly in an index or an average. All indexes and averages are unmanaged.

All data is unaudited and subject to change. Holdings/sectors may vary. This is not a recommendation to buy or sell any security listed.
The Fund may invest in small- and mid-cap stocks, which may be subject to more erratic market movements than large-cap stocks; foreign securities, which are subject to currency fluctuation and political uncertainty; short sales, which involve costs and the risks of potentially unlimited losses; and derivative securities, which may carry market, credit, and liquidity risks. These risks may increase the Fund's share price volatility. Diversification does not assure a profit or loss in declining markets. There is no guarantee the Fund's objective will be achieved.
Average weighted market capitalization is the average market capitalization of stocks in a fund, each weighted by its proportion of assets. Beta measures a fund's sensitivity to changes in the overall market relative to its benchmark. The P/E ratio (Source: Morningstar, Inc.) relates the price of a stock to the per-share earnings of the company. P/E is calculated using a harmonic weighted average, which excludes outliers that can easily skew results. Standard deviation depicts how widely returns vary around its average and is used to understand the range of returns most likely for a given fund. A higher standard deviation generally implies greater volatility. Turnover is the rate of trading in a portfolio, higher values imply more frequent trading. Beta is benchmarked against the Russell 2500TM Index which measures the performance of the 2,500 smallest companies in the Russell 3000 Index, which represents approximately 16% of the total market capitalization of the Russell 3000 Index. The index and Russell are trademarks of the Frank Russell Company. An investment cannot be made directly in an index. Due to data availability, statistics may not be as of current reporting period.
