Performance data quoted represents past performance, which is no guarantee of future results. Current performance may be lower or higher than the performance quoted. Please refer to Important Risk Information. The principal value and return of an investment will fluctuate so that your shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost. Performance reflected at NAV does not include the Fund's maximum front-end sales load of 4.75%. Had it been included, the Fund's return would have been lower.

Index and Morningstar category data shown reflects full month periods only.

The Fund's investment advisor has contractually agreed to reimburse Fund expenses through March 31, 2025 to the extent necessary so that Total Annual Fund Operating Expenses of Class A shares, Class C shares and Class I shares are limited to 1.35%, 2.10% and 1.10% of average net assets, respectively. The Fund's investment advisor has contractually agreed to limit the Fund's annual ordinary operating expenses through March 31, 2025 for Class R6 shares (as a percentage of average net assets) to 1.10% less the Fund's annual sub-transfer agency ratio (the aggregate sub-transfer agency fees of the Fund's other share classes divided by the aggregate average annual net assets of the Fund's other share classes). For purposes of these expense limitations, operating expenses do not include taxes, interest, short interest, short dividend expenses, brokerage commissions, acquired fund fees and expenses, and extraordinary expenses, if any. Calamos Advisors LLC ("Calamos Advisors") may recapture previously waived expense amounts within the same fiscal year for any day where the respective share class's expense ratio falls below the contractual expense limit up to the expense limit for that day. This undertaking is binding on Calamos Advisors and any of its successors and assigns. This agreement is not terminable by either party.
