The returns of the Fund shown for periods prior to its inception date are the returns of the predecessor, the Barrow Street Fund LP, an unregistered limited partnership managed by the portfolio managers of the Barrow Value Opportunity Fund (the "Predecessor Private Fund"). The Predecessor Private Fund was reorganized into Institutional Class shares on August 30, 2013 the date that the Value Opportunity Fund commenced operations.

*Barrow Street Advisors LLC (the "Adviser") has contractually agreed, until October 1, 2018, to waive Management Fees and reimburse Other Expenses to the extent necessary to limit total annual fund operating expenses to an amount not exceeding 1.15% of Institutional Class shares, respectively, of average daily net assets. Management Fee waivers and expense reimbursements by the Adviser are subject to repayment by the Value Opportunity Fund for a period of three years after such fees and expenses were incurred, provided that the repayments do not cause Total Annual Fund Operating Expenses to exceed the foregoing expense limitations. Prior to October 1, 2018, this agreement may not be modified or terminated without the approval of the Board of Trustees. This agreement will terminate automatically if the Value Opportunity Fund's investment advisory agreement with the Adviser is terminated.
