*Olive Street Investment Advisers, LLC has contractually agreed, until at least October 28, 2017, to waive its management fees to the extent management fees to be paid to the Adviser exceed the management fees the Adviser is required to pay the Fund’s Sub-advisers. This contractual agreement may only be changed or eliminated with the approval of the Board of Trustees. Such waivers are not subject to reimbursement by the Fund.

Performance data quoted represents past performance; past performance does not guarantee future results. The investment return and principal value of an investment will fluctuate so that an investor's shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost. Current performance of the fund may be lower or higher than the performance quoted. Returns shown for the Fund include the reinvestment of all dividends, if any. Total return calculations reflect the effect of the Advisers fee waiver agreement for the Fund. If such fee waivers had not occurred, the quoted performance would be lower.

Free Cash Flow is a measure of financial performance calculated as operating cash flow minus capital expenditures. Free cash flow (FCF) represents the cash that a company is able to generate after laying out the money required to maintain or expand its asset base. Free cash flow is important because it allows a company to pursue opportunities that enhance shareholder value. Without cash, it's tough to develop new products, make acquisitions, pay dividends and reduce debt.
