The net expense ratio also takes into account contractual fee waivers and/or expense reimbursements without which performance would have been less. These undertakings may not be amended or withdrawn for one year from the date of the current prospectus, unless approved by the Board.

 

The net expense ratio (if applicable) reflects that the Advisor has contractually agreed to limit fees and/or reimburse expenses (Excluding certain expenses) until at least 3/29/15, however, the Fund's Board of Trustees may terminate or amend this arrangement prior to that date. The next expense ratio is also net of deferred income tax expense, which represents an estimate of the Fund's potential tax liability. This expense may vary from year to year. A change in the estimate of deferred tax liability could result in a loss to net asset value.

 

The performance data quoted represents past performance, which does not guarantee future results. The investment return and principal value of an investment in the Fund will fluctuate so that an investor's shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than the original cost. Current performance and expense ratios may be lower or higher than the data quoted.

Special Risks Investing in MLPs involves additional risks as compared to the risks of investing in common stock, including risks related to cash flow, dilution and voting rights. The Fund's investments are concentrated in the energy infrastructure industry with an emphasis on securities issued by MLPs, which may increase volatility. Energy infrastructure companies are subject to risks specific to the industry such as fluctuations in commodity prices, reduced volumes of natural gas or other energy commodities, environmental hazards, changes in the macroeconomic or the regulatory environment or extreme weather. MLPs may trade less frequently than larger companies due to their smaller capitalizations which may result in erratic price movement or difficulty in buying or selling. MLPs are subject to significant regulation and may be adversely affected by changes in the regulatory environment including the risk that an MLP could lose its tax status as a partnership. Additional management fees and other expenses are associated with investing in MLP funds. The Fund is subject to certain MLP tax risks. An investment in the Fund does not offer the same tax benefits of a direct investment in an MLP. The Fund is organized as a Subchapter "C" Corporation and is subject to U.S. federal income tax on taxable income at the corporate tax rate (currently as high as 35%) as well as state and local income taxes. The potential benefit of investing in MLPs generally is their treatment as partnerships for federal income tax. Many MLPs accrue deferred income taxes for future tax liabilities associated with the portion of MLP distributions considered to be a tax-deferred return of capital and for any net operating gains as well as capital appreciation on its investments. This deferred tax liability is reflected in the daily NAV and as a result a MLP fund's after-tax performance could differ significantly from the underlying assets even if the pre-tax performance is closely tracked. The Fund is classified as a "non-diversified" fund and may invest a greater portion of its assets in the securities of a single issuer. To the extent that a Fund obtains leverage through borrowings, there will be the potential for greater gains and the risk of magnified losses. Investing in debt securities involves additional risks including interest rate risk, credit risk, duration risk, and duplication of advisory fees and other expenses. High yield securities involve more risks than investment grade securities and tend to be more sensitive to economic conditions. Private equity investments may be subject to greater risks than investments in publicly traded companies due to limited public information and lack of regulatory oversight.

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.

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.

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.
