Neither Morningstar nor its content providers are responsible for any damages or losses arising from any use of this information. For each fund with at least a three-year history, Morningstar calculates a Morningstar Rating™ based on a Morningstar Risk-Adjusted Return measure that accounts for a variation in a Fund's monthly performance (including the effects of sales charges, loads and redemption fees) placing more emphasis on downward variations and rewarding consistent performance. The top 10% of funds in each category receive 5 stars, the next 22.5% receive 4 stars, the next 35% receive 3 stars, the next 22.5% receive 2 stars and the bottom 10% receive 1 star. The Overall Morningstar Rating for a fund is derived from a weighted average of the performance figures associated with its three-, five- and ten-year (if applicable) Morningstar Rating metrics. Morningstar Ratings are for the share classes cited only; other classes may have different performance characteristics and different Morningstar ratings. Most of the funds above offer four classes of shares, each with a different combination of sales charges, ongoing fees and other features. Any mutual fund using Morningstar extended performance, represented by hollow stars, would be considered an estimate based on the performance of the fund's oldest share class and adjusted for fees. © 2013 Morningstar, Inc.

The value of utility stocks changes as long-term interest rates change. Funds investing in a single sector, such as utilities, may be subject to more volatility than funds that invest more broadly. The utilities industries can be significantly affected by government regulation, financing difficulties, supply or demand of services, or fuel and natural resources conservation.

The Fund may invest in small and mid capitalization companies. Small capitalization companies are subject to signifiant price fluctuations and business risks. The stocks of smaller companies may trade less frequently and experience more abrupt price movements than stocks of larger companies; therefore, investing in this sector involves special challenges.

The Fund may invest in foreign securities. Investing in foreign 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.
