If the performance of the privately offered fund had been restated to reflect the applicable fees and expenses of each share class of the Fund, the performance may have been higher or lower. The privately offered fund began operations on 31 May 2006 and, on 5 June 2015, was reorganized into the Fund. Prior to the reorganization, the privately offered fund had an investment objective and investment strategies that were, in all material respects, the same as those of the Fund, and was managed in a manner that, in all material respects, complied with the investment guidelines and restrictions of the Fund. However, the privately offered fund was not registered as an investment company under the Investment Company Act of 1940 and was not subject to its requirements or requirements imposed by the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 which, if applicable, may have adversely affected its performance. The performance of each class of shares of the Fund will differ as a result of the different levels of fees and expenses applicable to each class of shares.

The Lipper Category returns and rankings are calculated by Lipper Inc., a Reuters Company, which is a nationally recognized organization that compares the performance of mutual funds with similar investment objectives. The Category returns represent the average performance of included funds, while rankings compare an individual fund's returns to those of the other funds in its category. Both are based on total return performance, with capital gains and dividends reinvested, with annual operating expenses deducted, but without including front- or back-end sales charges. Rankings begin with the actual share class inception. Rankings are relative to a peer group and do not necessarily mean that the fund had high total returns.
