The Portfolio in which the fund invests may become “non-diversified,” as defined under the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended, solely as a result of a change in relative market capitalization or index weighting of one or more constituents of the index that the Portfolio is designed to track. Shareholder approval will not be sought when the Portfolio crosses from diversified to non-diversified status under such circumstances.
Without a waiver, returns would have been lower and any rankings/ratings might have been less favorable.
