Performance is for the share class noted only. Other share classes may have different performance charecteristics. The historical performance of Class AAA Shares is used to calculate performance for Class A and C Shares prior to their issuance on December 31, 2002, and for Class I Shares on January 11, 2008. The actual performance for Class C Shares would have been lower and Class I Shares higher due to the different expenses associated with those classes 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. Stocks are subject to market, economic and business risks that cause their prices to fluctuate. When you sell Fund shares, they may be worth less than what you paid for them. Consequently, you can lose money by investing in the Fund.

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
