Important Disclosure Information

Performance data quoted represents past performance and is no guarantee of future results. Current performance may be lower or higher than the performance data quoted. Investment return and principal value will fluctuate so that an investor’s shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than original cost. Fund returns assume the reinvestment of all dividends and capital gain distributions.  Performance for Investor Class shares for periods prior to December 10, 2004 reflects performance of the applicable share class of Auxier Focus Fund, a series of Unified Series Trust (the “Predecessor Fund”). Prior to January 3, 2003, the Predecessor Fund was a series of Ameriprime Funds. The performance of the Fund’s Investor Class shares for the period prior to December 10, 2004 reflects the expenses of the Predecessor Fund.  As stated in the current prospectus, the Investor Class Share’s annual operating expense ratio (gross) is 1.10%.  The Adviser has contractually agreed to waive a portion of its fee/or and reimburse Fund expenses to limit Total Annual Fund Operating Expenses to 0.92% through October 31, 2021.  Other share classes may vary. The Fund charges a 2.0% redemption fee on shares redeemed within six months of purchase. Returns shown for less than six months do not reflect the 2.0% redemption fee.

Before investing you should carefully consider the Fund’s investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses. This and other information is in the prospectus, a copy of which may be obtained from this website or by calling (877) 328-9437. Please read the prospectus carefully before you invest.

Fund holdings and sector allocations are subject to change and should not be considered a recommendation to buy or sell any security. The Fund may invest in value stocks, which are subject to risk that their intrinsic value may never be realized, and growth stocks, which may be susceptible to rapid price swings. Investments in mid-sized companies generally carry greater risk than is customarily associated with larger companies. Moreover, if the Fund’s portfolio is overweighed in a sector, any negative development affecting that sector will have a greater impact on the Fund than a fund that is not overweighed in that sector. An increase in interest rates typically causes a fall in the value of a debt security (Fixed-Income Securities Risk) with corresponding changes to the Fund’s value. Foreign securities are subject to additional risks including international trade, currency, political, regulatory and diplomatic risks.

Returns shown are for Investor shares only; other share class returns may vary. Some of the Fund’s fees were waived or expenses reimbursed; otherwise, returns would have been lower. After-tax returns are calculated using the historical highest individual federal marginal income tax rates and do not reflect the impact of state and local taxes. Actual after-tax returns depend on an investor’’ tax situation and may differ from those shown. Actual after-tax returns are not relevant to investors who hold their Fund shares through tax-deferred arrangements such as 401(k) plans or individual retirement accounts.

The Morningstar Rating™ for funds, or “star rating”, is calculated for managed products (including mutual funds, variable annuity and variable life subaccounts, exchange-traded funds, closed-end funds, and separate accounts) with at least a three-year history. Exchange-traded funds and open-ended mutual funds are considered a single population for comparative purposes. It is calculated based on a Morningstar Risk-Adjusted Return measure that accounts for variation in a managed product’s monthly excess performance, placing more emphasis on downward variations and rewarding consistent performance. The top 10% of products in each product category receive 5 stars, the next 22.5% receive 4 stars, the next 35% receive 3 stars, the next 22.5% receive 2 stars, and the bottom 10% receive 1 star. The Overall Morningstar Rating for a managed product is derived from a weighted average of the performance figures associated with its three-, five-, and 10-year (if applicable) Morningstar Rating metrics. The weights are: 100% three-year rating for 36-59 months of total returns, 60% five-year rating/40% three-year rating for 60-119 months of total returns, and 50% 10-year rating/30% five-year rating/20% three-year rating for 120 or more months of total returns. While the 10-year overall star rating formula seems to give the most weight to the 10-year period, the most recent three-year period actually has the greatest impact because it is included in all three rating periods.

Mr. Auxier was named one of the top-10 brokers in the country (1997 and 1998) by Money magazine. Money’s All Star Brokers were selected based on the following:  Survey was created and conducted by Junius Ellis, writer for Money.   He asked industry professionals to nominate brokers at firms other than their own.  Candidates had to be willing to take new accounts of $150,000 or less, to have records clear of disciplinary or other disclosure events (FINRA), to display attributes (subjective and determined by the writer for the publication) such as accountability and independent thinking.    Additionally, those listed as All Stars customarily base their recommendations on their own independent research, personally own the stocks on their buy lists, avoid selling most brokerage products (“whose gold-plated fees can weigh down client’s returns”) and give commission discounts to regular customers.   From there, Mr. Ellis made his final selection of Money’s All Star Brokers based solely on the returns of the stock selections submitted by the brokers.  Stocks of all categories were considered.  Brokers participating did not pay a fee to participate.  The All Star Broker rating is not indicative of future performance
