The investment return and principal value of an investment will fluctuate so that an investor’s shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost. Current performance of the fund may be lower or higher than the performance quoted. Performance data current to the most recent month-end may be obtained by calling (866) 811 0224, or visiting www.hodgesfunds.com for quarterly performance. The fund imposes a 1.00% redemption fee on shares held less than 30 days. Performance data does not reflect the redemption fee. If reflected, total return would be reduced.

Mutual fund investing involves risk. Principal loss is possible. The fund invests in smaller companies, which involves additional risks such as limited liquidity and greater volatility. The fund invests in foreign securities which involves greater volatility and political, economic and currency risks and differences in accounting methods. These risks increase for emerging markets. The fund may also make short sales of securities, which involves the risk that losses may exceed the original amount invested. The fund may also use options and future contracts, which have the risks of unlimited losses of the underlying holdings due to unanticipated market movements and failure to correctly predict the direction of securities prices, interest rates and currency exchange rates. These risks may be greater than risks associated with more traditional investments. Value investing carries the risk that the market will not recognize a security’s inherent value for a long time, or that a stock judged to be undervalued may actually be appropriately priced or overvalued.
Shareholders should refer to the summary prospectus dated July 29, 2020, as supplemented, September 8, 2020, for specific details related to the reduction of fees.
