15 IMPORTANT INFORMATION Many of the slides in this presentation are only for illustrative purposes and are intended to provide general investment education and are not intended to provide legal, tax or investment advice. It is not intended to be relied upon as a forecast or research regarding a particular investment or the markets in general, nor intended to predict or depict performance of any investment or serve as a recommendation or offer to buy or sell securities. The forecasts and projections in this presentation are based on current market conditions and are subject to change without notice. Projections should not be considered a guarantee. Although the data provided in the presentation comes from reliable sources Lord Abbett cannot guarantee the accuracy or completeness of any statements or data contained herein. Risks to Consider: The value of investments in equity securities will fluctuate in response to general economic conditions and to changes in the prospects of particular companies and/or sectors in the economy. Investments in small-sized companies involve greater risks not associated with investing in more established companies, such as business risk, significant stock price fluctuations and illiquidity. Investing in international securities generally poses greater risk than investing in domestic securities, including greater price fluctuations and higher transaction costs. Special risks are inherent to international investing, including those related to currency fluctuations and foreign, political, and economic events. The securities markets of emerging countries tend to be less liquid, especially subject to greater price volatility, have a smaller market capitalization, have less government regulation and may not be subject to as extensive and frequent accounting, financial and other reporting requirements as securities issued in more developed countries. Further, investing in the securities of issuers located in certain emerging countries may present a greater risk of loss resulting from problems in security registration and custody or substantial economic or political disruptions. While growth stocks are subject to the daily ups and downs of the stock market, their long-term potential as well as their volatility can be substantial. Value investing involves the risk that the market may not recognize that securities are undervalued, and they may not appreciate as anticipated. No investing strategy can overcome all market volatility or guarantee future results. 15
