    The performance data quoted represents past performance, which does not guarantee future results.

    1. 1. 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.
    2. 2. Access index definitions.
    3. 3. The monthly yield and monthly adjusted yield are based on the NAV calculated immediately preceding the nearest month-end date. The monthly yield for each share class is calculated by annualizing the Fund's MLP distributions less expenses for the month for each class and dividing that figure by the class's net asset value on that month-end date. The result is compounded semiannually and annualized. The adjusted yield for each share class is based on the Fund's MLP distributions, less an estimate of the average return of capital based on historical ratios from the past three calendar years, less expenses for the month for each class and dividing that figure by the class's net asset value on that month-end date. The result is compounded semiannually and annualized. Falling share prices artificially increase yield. Please note that OppenheimerFunds, Inc. is not quoting a 30-day SEC yield. See the Fund’s link to the prospectus for more information.
    4. 4. On August 21, 2015, the Fund underwent a three for one share split, which resulted in three times as many shares of the Fund outstanding and a lower share price. The Standardized yield figure reflects the average number of shares for the period adjusted for the share split, which is a more accurate reflection of the standardized yield for the Fund. Without such adjustments, the standardized yields for Class A, Class C, and Class Y would have been 2.73%, 1.46%, and 3.20%, respectively.
    5. 5. On August 21, 2015, the Fund underwent a three for one share split, which resulted in three times as many shares of the Fund outstanding and a lower share price. The Standardized yield figure reflects the average number of shares for the period adjusted for the share split, which is a more accurate reflection of the standardized yield for the Fund. Without such adjustments, the standardized yields for Class A, Class B, Class C, and Class Y would have been 4.95%, 3.71%, 3.72% and 5.49%, respectively.
    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.
    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.  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. Class A shares rated 2 stars overall by Morningstar among  58  Energy Limited Partnership funds for the 3-, 5-, and 10 year period ended 3/31/16 based on risk-adjusted performance.
    13. F. OppenheimerFunds' equity style box is based on the portfolio's overall targeted capitalization range and relative valuation as determined by OFI.
