12B-1 Fees

The Funds have adopted a plan under Rule 12b-1 that allows the Funds to pay distribution and other fees for the sale and distribution of its shares and for services provided to shareholders. Under this Plan, the fee is 0.25% per year of each Fund's average net assets (calculated on a daily basis). Because these fees are paid out of the Funds, assets on an ongoing basis, over time these fees will increase the cost of your investment and may cost you more than paying other types of sales charges.

Investors should carefully consider the investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses of the Fund before investing.
