Time Period

Performance data quoted represents past performance; past performance does not guarantee future results. The investment return and principal value of an investment will fluctuate so that an investor’s shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost. Current performance of the fund may be lower or higher than the performance quoted.

Performance data shown reflecting the A Class (maximum load) reflects a sales charge of 5.50%. Performance data shown “excluding load” does not reflect the deduction of the maximum sales load.

Performance data shown for the C Class (including CDSC) reflects a contingent deferred sales charge (CDSC) of 1% for the first 12 months of investment. Performance data shown “excluding CDSC” does not reflect the deduction of the CDSC. If reflected, the load and the CDSC would reduce the performance quoted.

Investment performance reflects fee waivers in effect. In the absence of such waivers, total return would be reduced.
