Calamos Timpani SMID Growth Mutual Fund Overview

The fund invests in the equity securities of small and mid capitalization companies with high, sustainable growth potential, which may exceed market expectations.

Key Features

  • Combines fundamental research with the analysis of estimate revisions to identify the underestimated growth differential between a company's business strength and market expectations of that strength.
  • Pursues active management in a less followed investment space.
  • Analyzes secular trends to uncover exploitable investment opportunities specific to small and mid cap companies.

Portfolio Fit

Investing in small and mid cap companies is an important component of a diversified investment strategy. Small and midsize companies tend to have a greater chance of growing rapidly and outperforming large cap companies, yet this greater potential also raises the probability of greater volatility-which is why we believe active management is crucial.

Class I shares are offered primarily for direct investment by investors through certain tax-exempt retirement plans and by institutional clients, provided such plans or clients have assets of at least $1 million. For eligibility requirements and other available share classes see the prospectus and other Fund documents at www.calamos.com.

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. If share class inception date is on or before the 15th of the month, the index or category calculation inception date begins on the first day of that month. If share class inception date is after the 15th of the month, the index or category calculation inception date begins on the first day of the following month.

The Fund's investment advisor has contractually agreed to reimburse Fund expenses through March 1, 2024 to the extent necessary so that Total Annual Fund Operating Expenses of Class A shares and Class I shares are limited to 1.35% 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 1, 2024 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.
