CION Ares Diversified Credit Fund:
The public offering price is equal to the NAV plus an upfront sales charge of up to 5.75% for Class A, 4.25% for Class L, 3.00% for Class W and offering costs of up to $0.25 per share. Past performance is not a guarantee of future results. Please see the current prospectus, as amended and supplemented, for more information including, but not limited to, annual fund expenses.
Current distribution rate is expressed as a percentage equal to the projected annualized distribution amount (which is calculated by annualizing the current daily cash distribution per share without compounding), divided by the relevant net asset value per share. The current distribution rate shown may be rounded.
A portion of distributions may be a direct result of expense support payments provided by CION Ares Management, LLC (CAM), which are subject to repayment by CADC within three years. The purpose of this arrangement is to ensure that CADC bears an appropriate level of expenses. Any such distributions may not be entirely based on investment performance and can only be sustained if positive investment performance is achieved in future periods and/or CAM continues to make such expense support payments. Future repayments will reduce cash otherwise potentially available for distributions. There can be no assurance that such performance will be achieved in order to sustain these distributions. CAM has no obligation to provide expense support payments in future periods.
CADC may fund distributions from unlimited amounts of offering proceeds or borrowings, which may constitute a return of capital, as well as net income from operations, capital and non-capital gains from the sale of assets, dividends or distributions from equity investments and expense support payments from CAM, which are subject to repayment. For the year ending October 31, 2018, distributions were paid from taxable income and did not include a return of capital for tax purposes. It is not anticipated that the current distribution rate will contain a return of capital. If expense support payments from CAM were not provided, some or all of the distributions may have been a return of capital which would reduce the available capital for investment. The sources of distributions may vary periodically. Please refer to the semi-annual or annual reports filed with the SEC for the sources of distributions.
Returns include reinvestment of distributions and reflect fund expenses inclusive of expense support which will remain in effect at least until July 11, 2019 and may be subject to reimbursement in the future. The net expense ratio, inclusive of expense support, is 0.34% as of October 31, 2018. The gross expense ratio, without expense support, is 5.98% as of October 31, 2018. Expense ratios are annualized and calculated as a percentage of average net assets. The sales charge for Class A is 5.75%. Share values will fluctuate, therefore if repurchased, they may be worth more or less than their original cost. Past performance is not indicative of future results.
