There currently is no secondary market for the Fund’s shares and the Fund expects that no secondary market will develop. To provide liquidity to shareholders, the Fund intends to make quarterly offers to repurchase its outstanding shares at net asset value. Investments in lesser-known, small and medium capitalization companies may be more vulnerable than larger, more established organizations. The Fund’s investments may be negatively affected by the broad investment environment and capital markets in which the Fund invests, including the real estate market, the debt market and/or the equity securities market. The value of the Fund’s investments will increase or decrease based on changes in the prices of the investments it holds. This will cause the value of the Fund’s shares to increase or decrease. The Fund is “non-diversified” under the Investment Company Act of 1940 since changes in the financial condition or market value of a single issuer may cause a greater fluctuation in the Fund’s net asset value than in a “diversified” fund. The Fund is not intended to be a complete investment asset value than in a “diversified” fund. The Fund is not intended to be a complete investment program.

Shares of the Fund will not be listed on any securities exchange, which makes them inherently illiquid. Regardless of how the Fund performs, an investor may not be able to sell or otherwise liquidate his or her shares whenever such investor would prefer and may be unable to reduce his or her exposure on any market downturn. The Fund may pay distributions in significant part from sources that may not be available in the future and that are unrelated to the Fund’s performance, such as offering proceeds and borrowings.
