International securities are subject to political influences, currency fluctuations and economic cycles that may be unrelated to those affecting the domestic financial markets and may experience wider price fluctuations than domestic securities.

The following are total annual operating expense ratios for Sentinel Common Stock Fund Class A, C, & I shares; A - 1.03%, C - 1.84% and I - 0.72%. Expense ratio data is sourced from the Fund's most recent prospectus.

  1. Performance of the Class A shares prior to June 30, 2012 has not been adjusted to reflect the decrease in the maximum 12b-1 fee from 0.30% to 0.25%. If it had, those returns would be higher.
  2. Performance of the Class C shares prior to their inception on May 4, 1998 is based on the performance of the Fund's Class A shares, adjusted to reflect that Class C shares do not charge a front-end sales charge but may be subject to a CDSC and for higher ongoing expenses. The "since inception" performance data for Class C shares is calculated from January 12, 1934, which was the inception date of the Fund.
  3. Performance of the Class I shares prior to their inception on May 4, 2007 is based on the performance of the Fund's Class A shares restated to reflect that Class I shares are not subject to a sales charge. The "since inception" performance data for Class I shares is calculated from January 12, 1934, which was the inception date of the Fund. Only eligible investors may purchase Class I shares, as described in the prospectus.
  4. Expense ratio before custodian credits and reimbursements. Source: Fund's most recent prospectus.
