The portfolio may have a considerable cash position from time to time.

Alpha is a measure of a fund's actual returns and expected performance, given its level of risk (as measured by beta). Beta reflects the sensitivity of the fund's return to fluctuations in the market index. Standard deviation is a measure of how volatile a fund's returns are. Up and down capture are statistical measures which evaluate how well an investment manager performed relative to an index during periods when an index has either risen or fallen. R-squared is a statistical measure that represents the percentage of a fund or security's movements that can be explained by movements in a benchmark index.

Effective January 1, 2012, the Fund changed its name and investment strategy from “The Gabelli Woodland Small Cap Value Fund” to “The Gabelli Focus Five Fund”.

As a non-diversified mutual fund, more of the Fund’s assets may be focused in the common stocks of a small number of issuers, which may make the value of the Fund’s shares more sensitive to changes in the market value of a single issuer or industry than shares of a diversified mutual fund.

The Fund may invest in foreign securities. Investing in foriegn securities involves risks not ordinarily associated with investment in domestic issues including currency fluctuations, economic, and political risks.

Investors should carefully consider the investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses of the Fund before investing. The prospectus, which contains more complete information about this and other matters, should be read carefully before investing. To obtain a prospectus, please call 800-GABELLI or visit www.gabelli.com.
