* Fund Inception: 05/28/15** Pursuant to an operating expense limitation agreement between Balter Liquid Alternatives, LLC (the “Adviser”) and the Fund, the Adviser has agreed to waive its fees and/or absorb expenses of the Fund to ensure that Total Annual Fund Operating Expenses (excluding any front-end or contingent deferred loads, brokerage fees and commissions, acquired fund fees and expenses, borrowing costs (such as interest and dividend expense on securities sold short), taxes and extraordinary expenses such as litigation) for the Fund do not exceed 1.89% and 2.19% of the Fund’s average net assets, for Institutional Class and Investor Class shares, respectively, through February 28, 2018. This operating expense limitation agreement can be terminated only by, or with the consent of, the Board of Trustees. The Adviser is permitted to seek reimbursement from the Fund for fees it waived and Fund expenses it paid for the prior three fiscal years, as long as the reimbursement does not cause the Fund’s operating expenses to exceed the lower of the current expense cap or the expense cap in place at the time of the waiver or reimbursement.
