Class A shares become Investor Class and Class I shares become Institutional Class
SUMMIT, N.J., May 1, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — Management proposed and the Board of Trustees of Evermore Funds Trust approved the elimination of all sales (load) charges associated with Class A shares of the Evermore Global Value Fund. Concurrent with this fee structure adjustment, the Fund’s Class A shares (which previously were available in load and load-waived versions) were renamed and will now be known as “Investor Class” shares. The Fund’s Class I shares have also been renamed and will henceforth be known as “Institutional Class” shares.
“Our goal when we launched the Fund in 2010 was to make it accessible to as wide a group of investors and across as many distribution channels as possible, including channels that mainly invested in load share classes” explained Eric LeGoff, CEO of Evermore Funds Trust. “We are pleased to be going back to our roots in the mutual fund industry and to offer only no-load classes of shares in the Evermore Global Value Fund.”
The differences between the two classes of shares offered by the Fund is that the Investor Class shares require a minimum investment of $5,000 and carry a 12b-1 fee of 25 basis points annually, and the Institutional Class shares require a minimum investment of $1 million and do not have a 12b-1 fee. The changes discussed above became effective April 30, 2015.

Mutual fund investing involves risk. Principal loss is possible. The Fund invests in foreign securities which involve greater volatility and political, economic and currency risks and differences in accounting methods. These risks are greater for emerging markets. Investing in small and mid-sized companies involves additional risks such as limited liquidity and greater volatility. The Fund may make short sales of securities, which involves the risk that losses may exceed the original amount invested. Investments in debt securities typically decrease in value when interest rates rise. This risk is usually greater for longer-term debt securities. Investment in lower-rated, non-rated and distressed securities presents a greater risk of loss to principal and interest than higher-rated securities. Due to the focused portfolio, the fund may have more volatility and more risk than a fund that invests in a greater number of securities. Additional special risks relevant to our Fund involve derivatives and special situations. Please refer to the prospectus for further details.
Quasar Distributors, LLC is the distributor of the Fund.
