The thoughts and opinions expressed in the video are solely those of the person speaking as of February 24, 2017. There can be no assurance with regard to future market movements. The discussion of individual companies should not be considered a recommendation of such companies by the Fund's investment adviser. The discussion is designed to provide viewers with an understanding of how the Fund's investment adviser manages the Fund's portfolio. There can be no assurance with regard to future market movements. Mutual fund investing involves risk. Principal loss is possible. The Fund's investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses must be considered carefully before investing. The prospectus contains this and other important information about the Fund and may be obtained by calling 1-877-767-6633. Read it carefully before investing. Distributed by Ultimus Fund Distributors, LLC. The Fund may participate in short sales which are speculative transactions and involve special risks and include greater reliance on the Adviser's ability to accurately anticipate the future value of a security. The Fund invests in small- and mid-cap companies, which involves additional risks such as limited liquidity and greater volatility.

Performance data quoted represents past performance; past performance does not guarantee future results. The returns of the Fund shown for periods prior to its inception date are the returns of the predecessor of the Barrow Street Fund LP, an unregistered limited partnership managed by the portfolio manager of the Value Opportunity Fund (the "Predecessor Private Fund"). The Predecessor Private Fund was reorganized into the Institutional Class shares on August 30, 2013, the date that the Value Opportunity Fund commenced operations. The Value Opportunity Fund has been managed in the same style and by the same portfolio managers since the Predecessor Private Fund's inception on December 31, 2008. The Value Opportunity Fund's investment goals, policies, guidelines and restrictions are, in all material respects, equivalent to the Predecessor Private Fund's investment goals, policies, guidelines and restrictions. The information shows the Predecessor Private Fund's annual returns and long-term performance reflecting the actual fees and expenses that were charged when the Value Opportunity Fund was a limited partnership. The prior performance is net of management fees and other expenses but does not include the effect of the performance fee which was in place until October 7, 2012. From its inception on December 31, 2008 through the date of this prospectus, the Predecessor Private Fund was not subject to certain investment restrictions, diversification requirements and other restrictions of the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended (the "1940 Act") or Subchapter M of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended, which, if they had been applicable, might have adversely affected the Value Opportunity Fund's performance.
