Net Expenses,Fee waivers and/or expense reimbursements
The Investment Advisor, Administrator and Distributor (the "Service Providers") have contractually agreed to waive fees and/or reimburse expenses to the extent that Total Annual Operating Expenses (excluding Acquired Fund Fees and Expenses, dividend expenses relating to short sales, interest, taxes, expenses related to litigation and potential litigation, extraordinary expenses and expenses related to the Board of Trustees' deferred compensation plan) exceed the expense cap of the average daily net assets through the expense cap expiration date. This contract continues through that date, at which time the Service Providers will determine whether or not to renew or revise it.

International investing involves a greater degree of risk and increased volatility. Changes in currency exchange rates and differences in accounting and taxation policies outside the U.S. can raise or lower returns. Also, some overseas markets may not be as politically and economically stable as the United States and other nations. Because the Fund is concentrated in a single country or region, it is subject to the additional risk associated with a smaller number of issuers.

The Fund may invest in participation notes ("P-notes"), which are structured, synthetic instruments that attempt to replicate the performance of a particular equity, debt, currency or market ("reference assets"). There can be no assurance that there will be a trading market for a P-note or that the trading price of a P-note will equal the underlying value of the security, instrument or market that it seeks to replicate.

The Fund may invest in privately placed securities, which are generally less liquid than publicly traded securities. Furthermore, the Fund may not always be able to sell such securities without experiencing delays in finding buyers or reducing the sale price for such securities. The disposition of some of the securities held by the Fund may be restricted under federal securities laws. These securities may also be difficult to value.

The MSCI All Country Asia Pacific ex-Japan Index (net of foreign withholding taxes) is a free float-adjusted market capitalization index that is designed to measure the equity market performance in the Asia Pacific region, excluding Japan. The performance of the index does not reflect the deduction of expenses associated with a fund, such as investment management fees. By contrast, the performance of the Fund reflects the deduction of the fund expenses, including sales charges if applicable. Total return figures assume the reinvestment of dividends. The dividend is reinvested after deduction of withholding tax, applying the maximum rate to nonresident individual investors who do not benefit from double taxation treaties. An individual cannot invest directly in an index.

The performance of the Lipper Pacific ex Japan Funds Index includes expenses associated with a mutual fund, such as investment management fees. These expenses are not identical to the expenses charged by the Fund. An individual cannot invest directly in an index.

Total return assumes reinvestment of dividends and capital gains distributions and reflects the deduction of any sales charges, where applicable. Performance may reflect the waiver of a portion of the Fund's advisory or administrative fees for certain periods since the inception date. If fees had not been waived, performance would have been less favorable.
