DISCLOSURES

† The funds expense ratio is from the most recent prospectus. Pursuant to a settlement agreement, the expense ratio reflects a voluntary reduction of the management fee, from its stated, gross management fee, continuing until June 30, 2022. Additionally, the expense ratio reflects voluntary fee waivers and/or expense reimbursements determined by the funds Advisor and/or its affiliates. The voluntary waivers and/or expense reimbursements are in effect up to but not including the later of 01/01/2020 or the date of the funds next effective prospectus.

The fund’s Institutional Shares commenced operations on December 29, 2016. For period prior to the commencement of operations for the Institutional Shares, the performance information shown is for R Shares adjusted to remove any voluntary waiver of fund expenses related to the fund's R Shares that occurred during the period prior to the commencement of the fund's Institutional Shares.

Total returns for periods of less than one year are cumulative.

Total return may have been lower in the absence of temporary expense waivers or reimbursements.

Investing in IPOs involves special risks such as limited liquidity and increased volatility.

The fund is the successor to the Kaufmann Fund, Inc. ("Kaufmann Fund") pursuant to a reorganization that took place on April 23, 2001. Prior to that date, the fund had no investment operations.

International investing involves special risks including currency risk, increased volatility, political risks, and differences in auditing and other financial standards.

Small company stocks may be less liquid and subject to greater price volatility than large capitalization stocks.

After-tax returns are calculated using a standard set of assumptions. Actual after-tax returns depend on each investor’s personal tax situation, and are likely to differ from those shown. The stated returns assume the highest historical federal income and capital gains tax rates, but do not reflect the effect of any applicable state and local taxes. Return After Taxes on Distributions assumes a continued investment in the fund and shows the effect of taxes on fund distributions. Return After Taxes on Distribution and Sale of Fund Shares assumes all shares were redeemed at the end of each measurement period, and shows the effect of any taxable gain (or offsetting loss) on redemption, as well as the effects of taxes on fund distributions. After-tax returns are not relevant to investors holding shares through tax-deferred programs, such as IRA, 401(k) plans. The after-tax average annual total returns are based on the 37% tax bracket and include the 3.8% tax on net investment income.

Mutual funds are subject to risks and fluctuate in value.

Product classifications noted at the top are Federated's internal classifications.

The holdings percentages are based on net assets at the close of business on the date above, and may not necessarily reflect adjustments that are routinely made when presenting net assets for formal financial statement purposes. Because this is a managed portfolio, the investment mix will change.
