Dreman Contrarian Small Cap Value Fund
The investment objective of the fund is long-term capital appreciation. The fund seeks to meet this objective by purchasing undervalued stocks based on low price-to-earnings, price-to-book, price-to-cash flow and high dividend yield.
The Dreman Contrarian Small Cap Value Fund's strategy is based on a disciplined, low P/E approach to stock selection. We invest in small cap companies that our research concludes to be undervalued and prove to exhibit strong fundamentals and earnings growth.

The team that manages the Dreman Contrarian Small Cap Value Fund is led by Mark Roach, Portfolio Manager, and it invests in companies with market capitalizations between $100 million and $3 billion. The team focuses on eliminating stocks with above-market valuations by comparing financial ratios such as the price-to-earnings, price-to-book and price-to-cash flow.
Through extensive bottom-up research and rigorous fundamental analysis, we form a fund that is well-diversified across 95-140 companies, with the goal of achieving superior long-term performance results while managing volatility and risk.
Diversification does not ensure a profit or guarantee against loss. Small cap investing involves greater risk not associated with investing in more established companies, such as greater price volatility, business risk, less liquidity and increased competitive threat. Value stocks may remain undervalued for extended periods of time and the market may not recognize the intrinsic value of these securities.

Gross expenses are the funds' total annual operating expenses and do not reflect any fee waivers or reimbursements such as management fees, 12b-1 fees and other expenses. The Advisor has contractually agreed to waive its management fee and/or reimburse certain operating expenses, but only to the extent necessary so that the Fund's net expenses, excluding brokerage fees and commissions, borrowing costs (such as (a) interest expense and (b) dividends on securities sold short), taxes, extraordinary expenses, 12b-1 fees (if applicable), and any indirect expenses (such as fees and expenses of acquired funds), do not exceed 1.00%. Each waiver or reimbursement of an expense by the Advisor is subject to repayment by the Fund within the three fiscal years following the fiscal year in which the expense was incurred, provided that the Fund is able to make the repayment without exceeding the expense limitation. The contractual agreement is in effect through February 28, 2015. The expense cap may not be terminated prior to this date except by the Board of Trustees.
