    1. 1. The Fund's investment objective changed from "seeks capital appreciation" to "seeks total return" on 8/1/07. Performance prior to 8/1/07 is not indicative of performance for any subsequent periods.
    2. 2. Mani Govil was added as portfolio manager of the Fund as of October 5, 2016. Neil M. McCarthy and Joseph Higgins will no longer be portfolio managers of the Fund as of October 5, 2016.
    3. 3. Special Risks:  There is no guarantee that the issuers of stocks will declare dividends in the future, or that dividends will remain at their current levels or increase over time. Derivative instruments entail higher volatility and risk of loss compared to traditional stock or bond investments. Diversification does not guarantee profit or protect against loss.
    4. 4. The net expense ratio (where applicable) 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 These undertakings may not be amended or withdrawn for one year from the date of the current prospectus, unless approved by the Board.
    5. 5. Access index definitions.
    6. 6. 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.
    7. 7. Holdings are subject to change, are dollar-weighted based on assets, and may not reflect the use of leverage in the Fund. Market Cap breakdown is calculated using Morningstar's methodology and those capitalization standards may not align with those in the Fund’s prospectus.
    8. A. 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. Fund returns include changes in share price, reinvested distributions, and a 5.75% maximum sales charge where indicated. Returns do not consider capital gains or income taxes on an individual's investment.
    9. B. There is no guarantee of the payment of any dividend or other distributions at any level.
    10. C. "Year to Date" returns are cumulative, not annualized, and do not reflect sales charges (if sales charges are applicable to the Fund). 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.
    11. D. 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.
    12. E. OppenheimerFunds' equity style box is based on the portfolio's overall targeted capitalization range and relative valuation as determined by OFI.
