All investors will experience an annualized management fee rate decrease of 0.50% as a result of these redesignations. Notice of the redesignations was mailed on September 13, 2022 to unitholders of record on September 7, 2022.

The Manager is also announcing that it has determined, in accordance with Section 10(2)(5) of Stone American Dividend Growth Fund’s Amended and Restated Declaration of Trust dated December 6, 2018, as amended May 7, 2021 (the "Declaration of Trust"), that the aggregate series net asset value of the Fund is insufficient to warrant the cost of continuing the administration of the Fund. As a result, the Manager has determined to terminate the Fund on or about October 28, 2022 (the "Termination Date"). Investors will have the opportunity to switch their units to another Stone Fund prior to the termination date and are encouraged to consult with their Investment Advisor. All of the issued and outstanding units (the "Units") of the Fund will be redeemed by the Fund on the Termination Date.

Redemption proceeds will be paid on or before November 1, 2022. Unitholders will receive payment of the series net asset value per Unit to be redeemed. Unitholders are not required to take any action in connection with the final redemption. The Manager encourages all unitholders to consult with their Investment Advisor to understand the financial and tax implications associated with redeeming or switching their Units.

Notice of the Termination Date was mailed on September 13, 2022 to unitholders of record on September 7, 2022.
