** The Funds are intended for long-term investors and not for those who wish to
trade frequently in Fund shares. The Funds believe that excessive short-term trading of Fund shares creates
risks for the Funds and their long-term shareholders, including interference with efficient portfolio
management, increased administrative and brokerage costs and potential dilution in the value of shares.
Certain of the Funds impose and retain a 2.00% redemption fee (short-term trading fee) on shares that are
sold or exchanged on or before the seventh day after the date of purchase.
Please refer to Fund's prospectus for more information on the Short term trading fee.
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. Investing in micro capitalization stocks may involve greater risk than investing in small, medium and large capitalization stocks, since they can be subject to more abrupt or erratic movements in price. The Gabelli Global Mini Mites tm Fund may invest in relatively new or unseasoned companies, which are in their early stages of development, or micro cap companies positioned in new and emerging industries. Micro-cap companies may be illiquid. Securities of micro-cap and unseasoned companies present greater risks than securities of larger, more established companies. The Fund invests in foreign securities which involves risks not ordinarily associated with investments in domestic issues, including currency fluctuation, 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.
