Change in Value of a $10,000 Initial Investment

A hypothetical $10,000 investment in the fund's Class A shares at inception on 2/1/2000 would have been worth $58,206 on 12/31/2016. This does not reflect the 5.75% maximum front-end sales load applicable to Class A shares which, if reflected, would have lowered performance. Assumes reinvestment of dividends and capital gains. Performance for the fund's other share classes would vary.

Investors should consider the investment objectives, risks, charges, and expenses of the fund carefully before investing. Download a prospectus, or a summary prospectus, if available, that contains this and other information about the fund, and read it carefully before investing.

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. These figures do not reflect the maximum sales charge which, if included, would reduce return.
  4. 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.
