Past performance is not a reliable indicator of future performance. The total returns of the OC Premium Small Companies Fund over specified periods are shown in the above table. This table contains information regarding total returns to the date specified. Total returns are calculated after taking into account all fees. Before 1 July 2004, performance fees were not paid out of the Funds but billed by OC Funds directly to investors. In this table, the total returns for the period prior to 1 July 2004 have been adjusted to reflect the paid performance fees as if the fees were paid out by the Funds. The total return performance figures quoted are historical, calculated using end-of-month mid prices and do not allow the effects of income tax or inflation. Total returns assume the reinvestment of all distributions. The performance is quoted net of all fees and expenses. The indices do not incur these costs. Positive returns, which the Fund is designed to provide, are different regarding risk and investment profile to index returns.
