Advisor commissions are 0%-5% for front-end sales, 4.5% for deferred sales, 1% for the low-load option or 3% for the lower-load load-4 option. Redemption fees begin at 6% in Year 1 and end at zero after Year 6 for the regular DSC schedule, begin at 2% in Year 1 and end at zero after Year 2 for the low-load schedule or begin at 4.5% in Year 1 and end at zero after Year 4 for the load-4 schedule. Trailing commissions are 0.5% for front-end sales; 0.2% for the first seven years of deferred sales, and 0.5% thereafter; 0.5% for low-load sales; and 0.2% for the first four years of load-4 sales, and 0.5% thereafter.
