The gross expense ratios for Class A, B and C Shares are 1.13%, 1.63% and 1.63%, respectively. The net expense ratios for Class A, B and C Shares are 1.01%, 1.51% and 1.51%, respectively. The Adviser has contractually agreed to limit the advisory fees paid by the Fund to 0.28% (the "Advisory Fee Limit") for the period from February 1, 2010 through January 31, 2013. From February 1, 2010 through January 31, 2013 the Adviser may recoup from the Fund all or a portion of the advisory fees that it waives beyond the Advisory Fee Limit during the period from February 1, 2010 through January 31, 2013 (the "Recoupment Amount"), subject to certain limitations. The Adviser may not recoup any amount from the Fund if the Recoupment Amount plus the Advisory Fee Limit would exceed the Management Fee noted above. This contractual limitation will automatically terminate upon termination of the Investment Advisory Agreement or the Management and Administration Agreement between the Fund and the Adviser/Administrator. Any such recoupment would reduce the Fund's future total return.
