Strategy

The portfolio managers invest in well-established foreign businesses that appear likely to grow at a faster pace than world GDP and may benefit from four distinctive global themes that we call MANTRA®: Mass affluence, New Technology, Restructuring and aging. Within this framework, the portfolio managers rely on fundamental analysis to search for various types of quality growth companies with sustainable competitive advantages and above industry revenue growth.

Special Risks: Foreign investments may be volatile and involve additional expenses and special risks, including currency fluctuations, foreign taxes and geopolitical risks. Emerging and developing market investments may be especially volatile. Due to the recent global economic crisis that caused financial difficulties for many European Union countries, Eurozone investments may be subject to volatility and liquidity issues. Investments in securities of growth companies may be volatile. Small and mid-sized company stock is typically more volatile than that of larger, more established businesses, as these stocks tend to be more sensitive to changes in earnings expectations. It may take a substantial period of time to realize a gain on an investment in a small or mid-sized company, if any gain is realized at all. Diversification does not guarantee profit or protect against loss.

Class I shares are only offered to eligible institutional investors that make a minimum initial investment of $5 million or more and to retirement plan service provider platforms. The minimum account balance for class I shares is $2.5 million. Class I shares are sold at net asset value without a sales charge. Please see Fund prospectuses for additional information.

Holdings are subject to change, and are dollar weighted based on total net assets. Negative weightings may result from the use of leverage. Leverage involves the use of various financial instruments or borrowed capital in an attempt to increase investment return. Leverage risks include potential for higher volatility, greater decline of the fund's net asset value and fluctuations of dividends and distributions paid by the fund.

While the Dividend/Share column is updated the next business day after a dividend payment (as stated in the date below the table), the 12-Month Distribution ($) column is updated monthly. Therefore, there may be a time where the 12-Month Yield data is inconsistent with the Dividend/Share data.

For Class A Shares the starting value is $9,425 which takes into account the current maximum initial sales charge (unless "no sales charge" option chosen).

"Year to Date" returns are cumulative, not annualized, and do not reflect sales charges.  These returns would be lower if sales charges were taken into consideration.  Short-term returns may not be indicative of longer-term performance, which should also be considered when making investment decisions.

Index performance will be available approximately five days after each month-end.

Class B shares convert to Class A shares 72 months after purchase; therefore "since inception", "10-year" and "15-year" returns for Class B (if applicable) use Class A performance for period after conversion.

Daily net asset value and dollar change of the fund is as of the previous business day's closing. Fund net asset values are updated at approximately 7 p.m. ET daily.

OppenheimerFunds' equity style box is based on the portfolio's overall targeted capitalization range and relative valuation as determined by OFI.

For each fund with at least a three-year history, Morningstar calculates a Morningstar Rating based on a Morningstar Risk-Adjusted Return measure that accounts for variation in a fund's monthly performance (including the effects of sales charges, loads, and redemption fees), placing more emphasis on downward variations and rewarding consistent performance.  The top 10% of funds in each category receive 5 stars, the next 22.5% receive 4 stars, the next 35% receive 3 stars, the next 22.5% receive 2 stars, and the bottom 10% receive 1 star with some adjustments for multiple share class portfolios.   The Overall Morningstar Rating for a fund is derived from a weighted average of the performance figures associated with its three-, five and ten-year (if applicable) Morningstar Rating Metrics.  Oppenheimer International Growth Fund was rated against the following numbers of U.S.-domiciled Foreign Large Growth over the following time periods ended 3/31/14:  239 funds in the last three years, 208 funds in the last five years, and 115 in the last ten years.  With respect to these Foreign Large Growth funds, Oppenheimer International Growth Fund received a Morningstar Rating of 4 stars, 4 stars and 4 stars for the three-, five-, and ten-year periods, respectively.  Morningstar Rating is for the A share class only and rating may include more than one share class of funds in the category, including other share classes of this Fund. Different share classes may have different expenses, performance characteristics and Morningstar ratings.  Past performance is no guarantee of future results.

Class A shares rated 4 stars overall by Morningstar among  239  Foreign Large Growth funds for the 3-, 5-, and 10 year period ended 3/31/14 based on risk-adjusted performance.

Beta (3-yr): is a measure of a fund's sensitivity to market movements. The beta of a market is 1.00 by definition.

Alpha (3-yr): measures the difference between a fund's actual and expected returns, based on beta, and is generally used as a measure of a manager's added value over a passive strategy.

R-squared (3-yr): is a measurement of how closely a portfolio's performance correlates with the performance of a benchmark index, and thus a measurement of what portion of its performance can be explained by the performance of the index. Values for R-squared range from 0 to 100, where 0 indicates no correlation and 100 indicates perfect correlation.  

Sharpe Ratio (3-yr): is a risk-adjusted measure that measures reward per unit of risk. the higher the Sharpe Ratio, the better. The numerator is the difference between the portfolio's annualized return and the annualized return of a risk-free instrument, the denominator is the portfolio's annualized standard deviation (population).

Standard Deviation (3-yr): is a statistical measure of the degree to which the performance of a portfolio varies from its average performance during a specified period. the higher the standard deviation, the greater the volatility of the portfolio's performance returns relative to its average return.

Alpha, Beta and R-Squared were measured against the fund's benchmark: . Access index definitions.

P/E ratio: The price of a stock divided by its earnings per share. The higher the P/E, the more investors pay, the more return they may expect and the riskier the stock may be.

P/B ratio: Abbreviation for price to book value ratio. It's the market value of a company's stock divided by its book value.

Earnings Growth: Revenue, minus cost and expenses, for a certain period.

Turnover ratio: A measure of the strategy's trading activity, which is computed by taking the lesser of purchases or sales during the strategy's latest fiscal year, divided by the total net asset value (NAV).
