Performance quoted represents past performance and does not guarantee future results. Investment return and principal value will fluctuate, so shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost. Performance during periods of exceptional market conditions should not be expected to be repeated in a normal market environment. Current performance may be lower or higher than that cited.
Class A performance quoted "with maximum sales load" reflects the current maximum sales charge of 5.75%. The sales load on Class C shares is deferred and will be charged if you redeem shares within one year of purchase. The contingent deferred sales load is 1.00% of the purchase or sale price of the shares, whichever is less. Please read the prospectus carefully for more information on sales charges as they do not apply in all cases and if applied are reduced for larger purchases. Any sales charges are in addition to the Fund's fees and expenses as detailed in the Fund's most current prospectus. The performance quoted at NAV or "without sales load" does not reflect any sales charge. If a sales charge were included, the performance stated above would be lower.
Total return figures reflect an expense limitation in effect during the periods shown; without such limitation, the performance shown would have been lower. Performance results assume the reinvestment of dividends and capital gains.
The Adviser has contractually agreed to waive a portion of its management fee and/or reimburse certain expenses through at least July 31, 2018. The Adviser is permitted to recoup fees waived/expenses reimbursed for up to 3 years after the fiscal year in which the waiver/reimbursement took place, subject to certain limitations. Please read the prospectus for details.
Class R and Y shares of the Fund are only available to investors that meet certain eligibility requirements.
Returns are average annual total returns, except those for periods of less than one year, which are cumulative.

All investing involves risk, including potential loss of principal. There is no guarantee that the Fund will achieve its objective.Investments in small and mid-size companies can involve risks such as less publicly available information, higher volatility, and less liquidity than larger companies. Funds that concentrate investments in a certain sector may be subject to greater risk than funds that invest more broadly, as companies in that sector may share common characteristics and may react similarly to market developments or other factors affecting their values.
