Olstein Strategic Opportunities Fund
Class C Performance
There is a 1% contingent deferred sales charge (CDSC) imposed if an investor redeems Class C shares within the first year of purchase.
Class A Performance
Standardized returns reflect deduction of the maximum 5.50% sales charge applicable to Class A shares. Class A shares purchased subject to a front-end sales charge have no contingent deferred sales charge (CDSC). However, certain purchases of Class A shares made without a front-end sales charge may be subject to a CDSC of 1% if the shares are redeemed within 12 months of the purchase. The CDSC is not reflected in the performance with maximum sales charge.
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. Value stocks can continue to be undervalued by the market for long periods of time. Current performance may be lower or higher than performance quoted; to obtain the most recent month-end performance, please call 800-799-2113.
