Notes & Disclosures
  1. Performance is historical and not indicative of future results. Investment return and principal value will fluctuate and an investor will receive more or less than the original cost upon redemption.
  2. Source: Morningstar, Inc. All rights reserved. Reflects reinvestment of dividends and, where applicable, capital gain distributions. The Russell 2500 Value Index is an unmanaged index, which measures the performance of those Russell 2500 companies with lower price-to-book ratios and lower forecasted growth values.
  3. Dreyfus and TBCAM have contractually agreed, with respect to each class of the Fund, to assume the expenses of the class so that such expenses (excluding taxes, interest, brokerage commissions, commitment fees on borrowings and extraordinary expenses) do not exceed an annual rate of 1.39% for Class A, 2.22% for Class C, and 1.16% for Class I, until the fiscal year end following such time as the expenses are equal to or less than such annual rate for the applicable class.
  4. The "Dreyfus Investment Style Classification" graphically depicts the fund's investment strategy as described in its Prospectus. The horizontal and vertical axes describe the fund's investment style and market capitalization range for stocks in the fund's portfolio, respectively. It is designed to support asset allocation decisions and not to depict actual fund holdings at a point in time.
