The performance data quoted represents past performance and is no guarantee of future results. Current performance may be lower or higher than the performance data quoted. Investment return and principal value will fluctuate so that an investor's shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost. Shares held for less than 30 days may be subject to a 2.0% redemption fee. Performance shown does not reflect any applicable front-end sales charge, contingent deferred sales charges or redemption fees, and would be lower if it did. The maximum front-end sales charge for Class A shares is 5.75%, except for the High Yield Fund which is 3.75%. Investors of Class C shares may be subject to a contingent deferred sales charge (CDSC) of 1.00% for shares redeemed within 12 months of purchase.
Since the Funds will hold foreign securities, they may entail greater risks than funds investing only in the U.S. These risks are more severe for securities of issuers in emerging market regions. The Funds may also invest in smaller companies. Investments in smaller companies are more volatile than investments in larger companies.
