The Fund's investment advisor has contractually agreed to reimburse Fund expenses through March 1, 2023 to the extent necessary so that Total Annual Fund Operating Expenses (excluding taxes, interest, short interest, short dividend expenses, brokerage commissions, acquired fund fees and expenses, and extra-ordinary expenses, if any) of Class A, Class C, and Class I are limited to 1.40%, 2.15%, and 1.15% of average net assets, respectively. The Fund's investment adviser has contractually agreed to limit the Fund's annual ordinary operating expenses for Class R6 shares (as a percentage of average net assets) to 1.15% less the annual sub-transfer agency ratio for the Fund. The annual sub-transfer agency ratio is equal to the aggregate sub-transfer agency expenses common to the other share classes of the Fund 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 may recapture previously waived expense amounts within the same fiscal year for any day where the respective Fund'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.
