Performance pertains to the share class noted only. Other share classes may have different performance characteristics. The Class AAA Shares' net asset values are used to calculate performance for the periods prior to the issuance of the Advisor Share Class on May 1, 2007. The actual performance for the Advisor Class would have been lower due to the different expenses associated with this class of shares. Performance for periods of less than one year are not annualized. The Fund imposes a 2% redemption fee on shares sold or exchanged in seven days or less after the date of purchase.
The Fund's share price will fluctuate with changes in the market value of the Fund's portfolio securities.

a more diversified fund. Because the Fund invests in announced mergers or acquisitions, the Fund is subject to the risk that the announced
merger or acquisition may not be completed, may be negotiated at a less attractive price, or may not close on the expected
date. The Fund may not achieve its objective and you may lose money by investing in the Fund.
