Total Annual Fund Operating Expenses After Expense Waiver/Reimbursement: 0.65%

The Fund, under normal circumstances, invests at least 80% of its net assets in the equity securities that comprise the Index and/or investments that have economic characteristics that are substantially identical to the economic characteristics of the securities that comprise the Index. At this time, investments that have economic characteristics that are substantially identical to the economic characteristics of Index securities are limited to depositary receipts.

The Fund may invest up to 20% of its assets in financial instruments that provide leveraged and unleveraged exposure to the Index. These financial instruments include: futures contracts; options on securities, indices and futures contracts; equity caps, collars and floors; swap agreements; forward contracts; short positions; reverse repurchase agreements; exchange-traded funds (“ETFs”); and other financial instruments. On a day-to-day basis, the Fund also may hold short-term debt instruments that have terms-to-maturity of less than 397 days and exhibit high quality credit profiles, including U.S. government securities and repurchase agreements.

The Index is composed of 100 stocks selected from the S&P 1500 by Sabrient Systems LLC (the “Index Provider”) using a quantitative methodology. The S&P 1500 is a composite index of the S&P 500, S&P 400 and S&P 600, which are composed of stocks representing the large capitalization, mid capitalization and small capitalization segments of the U.S. equity market, respectively. Starting with an eligible universe of all 1500 stocks in the S&P 1500, the Index Provider first eliminates stocks of companies with very aggressive accounting, as identified by the Index Provider’s proprietary forensics accounting methodology. From the remaining stocks, the Index Provider further eliminates all but 200 stocks using a screening methodology that is based an analysis of public company filings relating to frequency of trades, purchases of stock and increases in holdings by a company’s insiders, as well as positive earnings analysis. Through that same methodology, the remaining 200 stocks are ranked and the top 100 stocks are selected to make up the Index. The Index is “quant-weighted,” meaning the top 50 stocks are weighted exponentially, with the top stock representing 2.6% of the Index, while the bottom 50 stocks are equal-weighted, with each representing 0.35% of the Index. The bottom 50 stocks thereby account for 17.61% of the total Index. The Index rebalances monthly.

The Fund may gain exposure to only a representative sample of the securities in the Index that have aggregate characteristics similar to those of the Index. The Fund gains this exposure either by directly investing in the underlying securities of the Index or by investing in derivatives that provide exposure to those securities. The Fund seeks to remain fully invested at all times consistent with its investment objective. The Fund repositions its portfolio in response to assets flowing into or out of the Fund. To the extent the Fund experiences regular purchases or redemptions of its shares, it may reposition its portfolio more frequently. Additionally, the impact of the Index’s movements will affect whether the Fund’s portfolio needs to be re-positioned. For example, if the Index has added or removed a security, the Fund’s portfolio may have to be re-positioned to account for this change to the Index. These re-positioning strategies typically result in high portfolio turnover. The Fund will concentrate its investment in a particular industry or group of industries to approximately the same extent as the Index is so concentrated.
