Notes & Disclosures
  1. For share classes offered after the fund's inception date, the total returns quoted reflect the performance of the fund's initial share class(es), adjusted to reflect applicable non-recurring sales charges. Performance for these share classes has not been adjusted to reflect any class-specific distribution or servicing fees or any differences in operating expenses. Had such fees and expenses been reflected, returns for these share class returns during such periods would have been lower.
  2. 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.
  3. Source: Morningstar, Inc. All rights reserved. Reflects reinvestment of dividends and, where applicable, capital gains distributions. The Russell 1000 Growth Index is an unmanaged index which measures the performance of the Russell 1000 companies with higher price-to-book ratios and higher forecasted growth values.
  4. The Ratings formula measures the amount of variation in a fund's performance and gives more emphasis to downward variations. The top 10% of the funds in the category receive five stars; the next 22.5% four stars; the next 35% three stars; the next 22.5% two stars; and the last 10% one star. Ratings reflect sales loads.The fund represents a single portfolio with multiple share classes that have different expense structures.
  5. The Dreyfus Corporation has agreed, until May 1, 2015, to waive receipt of its fee and/or assume the expenses of the fund so that the direct expenses of none of the classes (excluding taxes, interest, brokerage commissions, commitment fees on borrowings, extraordinary expenses, shareholder services fees and 12b-1 fees) exceed 0.90%.
