Based on risk-adjusted performance

Past performance does not guarantee future results. Performance represents past performance; current returns may be lower or higher. Performance information for institutional class shares of Funds that existed prior to their initial public offering is based on the performance of investor class shares. The investment return and principal value will fluctuate so that an investor's shares, when redeemed may be worth more or less than the original cost. All returns reflect reinvested dividends and capital gains distributions, but do not reflect the deduction of taxes that an investor would pay on distributions or redemptions. Subject to certain exceptions, shares of a Fund redeemed or exchanged within 10 days (90 days for the International Value Fund) of purchase are subject to a 2% redemption fee. Performance does not reflect this fee, which if deducted would reduce an individual's return.

In the prospectus (pdf) dated 5/1/2017, the gross expense ratios for the investor and institutional classes of the Select Value Fund are 1.23% and 0.99%, respectively. The Advisor has voluntarily agreed to waive fees and/or reimburse expenses with respect to the institutional class, to the extent necessary to maintain the institutional class “Net Annual Operating Expenses” at a ratio not to exceed 0.99% of average daily net assets. This voluntary waiver/reimbursement may be discontinued at any time. Without such waiver and/or reimbursements, the Select Value Fund institutional class Total Annual Fund Operating Expenses would be 1.00%. Also, through 11/30/2001, the Advisor voluntarily waived a portion of the Fund’s expenses. Without such waivers and/or reimbursements, total returns may have been lower.

The inception date for the Select Value Fund is 10/11/1996 for the investor class and 5/1/2008 for the institutional class.

As of 3/31/2017, Heartland Advisors on behalf of its clients held approximately 0.01% of the total shares outstanding of Wells Fargo & Co.

In addition to stocks of large companies, the Select Value Fund invests in small- and mid-sized companies that are generally less liquid and more volatile than large companies. The Fund also invests in a smaller number of stocks (generally 40 to 60) than the average mutual fund. The performance of these holdings generally will increase the volatility of the Fund’s returns.

Value investments are subject to the risk that their intrinsic value may not be recognized by the broad market.

Portfolio holdings are subject to change without notice. Current and future portfolio holdings are subject to risk.

Portfolio holdings exclude cash, cash equivalents, options, and futures.

Certain security valuations and forward estimates are based on Heartland Advisors' calculations. Any forecasts may not prove to be true.

Information about Morningstar Ratings™ are ©2017 Morningstar, Inc. All rights reserved. The information contained herein is (1) proprietary to Morningstar and/or its content providers; (2) may not be copied or distributed, and (3) is not warranted to be accurate, complete or timely. Neither Morningstar nor its content providers are responsible for any damages or losses arising from any use of this information. Past performance is no guarantee of future results. 

The Morningstar Rating™ for funds, or "star rating", is calculated for managed products (including mutual funds, variable annuity and variable life subaccounts, exchange-traded funds, closed-end funds, and separate accounts) with at least a three-year history. Exchange-traded funds and open-ended mutual funds are considered a single population for comparative purposes. It is calculated based on a Morningstar Risk-Adjusted Return measure that accounts for variation in a managed product's monthly excess performance, placing more emphasis on downward variations and rewarding consistent performance. The top 10% of products in each product category receive 5 stars, the next 22.5% receive 4 stars, the next 35% receive 3 stars, the next 22.5% receive 2 stars, and the bottom 10% receive 1 star. The Overall Morningstar Rating for a managed product is derived from a weighted average of the performance figures associated with its three-, five-, and 10-year (if applicable) Morningstar Rating metrics. The weights are: 100% three-year rating for 36-59 months of total returns, 60% five-year rating/40% three-year rating for 60-119 months of total returns, and 50% 10-year rating/30% five-year rating/20% three-year rating for 120 or more months of total returns. While the 10-year overall star rating formula seems to give the most weight to the 10-year period, the most recent three-year period actually has the greatest impact because it is included in all three rating periods.

As of 10/31/2017 Morningstar Ratings™: The Heartland Select Value Fund investor class was rated against 227, 319, and 373 U.S.-domiciled Mid-Cap Value funds over the 10-, 5-, and 3-year periods and received 3, 2, and 3 stars, respectively.
As of 10/31/2017 Morningstar Ratings™: The Heartland Select Value Fund institutional class was rated against 227, 319, and 373 U.S.-domiciled Mid-Cap Value funds over the 10-, 5-, and 3-year periods and received 3, 3, and 3 stars, respectively.
