Performance data quoted represents past performance. Past performance does not guarantee future results. Investment return and principal value will fluctuate so that an investor’s shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost. Current performance may be lower or higher than performance quoted. Class A reflects a maximum 5.75% sales charge. Performance information does not reflect the 2% fee on shares redeemed or exchanged within 30 days of purchase. If such redemption fee was included, performance would be reduced.
Mutual fund investing involves risk. Principal loss is possible. Investing in small and micro cap companies involves additional risks, including greater fluctuations in value and less liquidity than larger companies. The Fund invests in foreign securities which involve greater volatility and political, economic and currency risks and differences in accounting methods. These risks are more fully described in the prospectus.
