Your returns and the principal value of your investment will fluctuate so that your shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost.

1.
You will be charged a fee of the amount redeemed or exchanged out of the Fund within 60 calendar days of the initial purchase date. Please see the prospectus for details about this redemption fee and certain exemptions that may apply. The above performance data does not reflect the deduction of the redemption fee, and if reflected, the fee would reduce the performance quoted.
2.
The fund's Institutional Class began operations on July 1, 1999. Performance shown prior to the inception of the Retirement Class is based on the performance of the fund's Institutional Class. Performance has not been restated to reflect the higher expenses of the Retirement Class. If the expense differential had been reflected, performance for these periods would have been lower.
