2 Expand into energy by investing in energy infrastructure North America is at the forefront of a sweeping transformation in oil and gas production that will affect all regions of the world. International Energy Agency (IEA) The IEA predicts that North America will become a net exporter of natural gas by 2018, and be completely energy self-sufficient by Thanks to new advancements in shale drilling, such as hydraulic fracturing (or fracking), significant reserves of oil and natural gas are being unlocked throughout the United States and fueling North America s energy revolution. 2 transamericainvestments.com

Source: Kayne Anderson Capital Advisors, L.P. WELLHEAD SHALE FRACTURES With advances in hydraulic fracturing, we are unlocking significant supplies of oil and gas reserves throughout the United States. What is fracking? The fracking process involves injecting fracturing fluid (a combination of water, chemicals, and proppant) at high speed into a wellbore and through the underlying hydrocarbon rock below. This cracks the rock with enough pressure to create spin-off fractures that permeate through the formation and allow trapped pockets of oil and gas to escape back up the wellbore. Once the injection process is stopped or the pressure is reduced to allow the oil and gas to surface, the proppant (generally any particulate material such as grains of sand or ceramic) prevents the fractures from closing. 3

4 Infrastructure is vital to energy expansion What is infrastructure? By definition, infrastructure is the basic facilities, services, and installations needed for a specific function. In the energy space, new infrastructure will be required to transport, store, and distribute the resources harnessed from North America s newly accessible oil and gas reserves. Within the energy value chain, companies operations and investments are primarily classified as upstream, midstream, or downstream. Energy infrastructure generally refers to midstream. Tankers Refineries UPSTREAM Exploration and production Railroads Consumer fuel Drilling and wells Crude oil MIDSTREAM Pipelines, processing, and transportation Utility companies Off-shore rigs Storage Oil trucks DOWNSTREAM Refining products and marketing 4 transamericainvestments.com

5 Transamerica MLP & Energy Income Transamerica MLP & Energy Income offers a comprehensive approach to energy infrastructure investing Transamerica MLP & Energy Income focuses on three investment instruments in energy infrastructure MLPs & MLP equivalents, energy infrastructure equities, and debt of energy-related companies and seeks to provide: Long-term growth of capital A wide range of current income opportunities A 25% maximum allocation to registered MLPs (to avoid the fund being taxed twice as a C corporation instead of once as a regulated investment company [RIC])* Room to move across various investment vehicles within the energy space through a flexible mandate * A 25% maximum MLP allocation may create tax advantages over pure MLP funds, but will limit an investor s ability to experience the potential advantages of investing in a greater percentage of MLPs. The 25% maximum allocation to MLPs in Transamerica MLP & Energy Income does not include fund allocations to MLPs that have elected to be taxed as a C corporation for U.S. federal income tax purposes. A single investment that combines MLPs, energy infrastructure equities, and energy-related debt offers access to a broad array of investment opportunities in the North American energy revolution and the potential benefits available from each. What is an MLP? Master limited partnerships (MLPs) are publicly traded limited partnerships that consist of a general partner and limited partners. MLPs distribute income to investors similar to dividend-paying stocks, but their ownership structure (partnership versus corporation) may allow them certain tax advantages. 5

6 Investment opportunities are comprehensive Investors can be a part of the energy revolution through Transamerica MLP & Energy Income. The fund invests across multiple energy infrastructure categories and combines the potential benefits of each into a single comprehensive investment strategy. These investments > MLPs and MLP equivalents Energy infrastructure equities Debt of energyrelated companies May provide opportunity for: Competitive distributions and tax advantages Enhanced returns and diversification Lower volatility Income potential Growth potential Real asset diversification Distributions in excess of the fund s earnings and profits will, as to each shareholder, be treated as a return of capital to the extent of the shareholder s basis in his or her fund shares, and as capital gain thereafter (assuming the shareholder holds the shares as capital assets). A distribution treated as a return of capital will not be taxable currently but will reduce the shareholder s tax basis in his or her shares, which will generally increase the gain (or decrease the loss) that will be recognized on a subsequent sale or exchange of the shares. MLPs and MLP equivalents MLPs are often more liquid than traditional partnerships because they trade on major exchanges like shares of a public corporation. MLPs distribute income to investors similar to dividend-paying stocks but are not taxed at the corporate level, allowing the potential for greater distributions and competitive yield compared to other asset classes.

7 Transamerica MLP & Energy Income Energy infrastructure equities Energy equities have historically posted strong returns compared to other equity asset classes. With the necessary build out of energy infrastructure, energy equities have the potential for strong returns relative to other equity sectors. This has also been the case historically over the past 10 years, energy equities have posted strong returns.

Debt of energy-related companies Energy-related companies have the ability to issue debt in order to raise capital to support the costs of building out infrastructure. Most of these contracts tend to show a relatively stable cash flow profile with a longer duration, making them a viable option for current income. Adding debt to an energy-related fund can help reduce overall portfolio volatility.

10 Transamerica MLP & Energy Income To learn more about Transamerica investment strategies, contact your financial advisor or visit transamericainvestments.com Mutual funds are subject to market risk, including the loss of principal. Investments in MLPs involve risks that differ from investments in corporate issuers, including risks related to limited control, cash flow risks, dilution risks, and risks related to the general partner s right to require unit holders to sell their common units at an undesirable time or price. The energy industries can be significantly affected by fluctuations in energy prices and supply and demand of energy fuels, energy conservation, the success of exploration projects, and tax and other government regulations. Sector funds can be more volatile because of their narrow concentration in a specific industry. Stock markets are volatile and can decline significantly in response to adverse issuer, political, regulatory, market, economic, or other developments. The fund is subject to certain MLP tax risks. Risks associated with accounting for deferred tax liability could materially impact the net asset value. An investment in the fund does not offer the same tax benefits of a direct investment in an MLP. The fund is classified as non-diversified, which means it may invest a larger percentage of its assets in a smaller number of issuers than a diversified fund. To the extent the fund invests its assets in fewer issuers, the fund will be more susceptible to negative events affecting those issuers. Shares of the fund may only be sold by offering the fund s prospectus. You should consider the investment objective, risks, charges, and expenses of the fund carefully before investing. The prospectus contains this and additional important information regarding the fund. To obtain the prospectus and/or a summary prospectus, please contact your financial professional or go to transamericainvestments.com. The prospectus should be read carefully before investing. Transamerica Funds are advised by Transamerica Asset Management, Inc. and distributed by Transamerica Capital, Inc. Not insured by FDIC or any federal government agency. May lose value.
