+ Gabelli Funds, LLC (the ‘‘Adviser’’) has contractually agreed to waive its investment advisory fees and/or to reimburse expenses of the Fund to the extent necessary to maintain the Total Annual Fund Operating Expenses After Fee Waiver and Expense Reimbursement (excluding brokerage costs, acquired fund fees and expenses, interest, taxes, and extraordinary expenses) from exceeding 0.90% of the Fund’s average daily net assets per year (the ‘‘Expense Cap’’). This arrangement is in effect until January 31, 2018 and may be terminated only by the Board of Trustees of the Company (the ‘‘Board’’) before such time. The Fund will carry forward, for a period not to exceed three years from the date that an amount is waived, any fees in excess of the expense limitation and repay the Adviser such amount provided the Fund is able to do so without exceeding the lesser of (1) the expense limit in effect at the time of the waiver or reimbursement, as applicable, or (2) the expense limit in effect at the time of recoupment.

Industry Concentration Risks. The Fund invests a significant portion of its assets in companies in the telecommunications, media, publishing and entertainment industries and, as a result, the value of the Fund’s shares is more susceptible to factors affecting those particular types of companies and those industries, including governmental regulation, a greater price volatility than the overall market, rapid obsolescence of products and services, intense competition and strong market reactions to technological developments. As a consequence of its concentration policy, the Fund’s investments may be subject to greater risk and market fluctuation than a fund that has securities representing a broader range of alternatives.
