*Returns are for EIC’s All-Cap Value (“ACV”) Composite, which includes fully discretionary, non-wrap accounts presented as supplemental information to a GIPS® Composite Report that is considered an integral part of the above presentations. ACV returns are presented both gross and net of management fees. Net returns are calculated by reducing gross returns with an assumed maximum annual fee of 1.0%, applied monthly. However, for the period January 1, 1989, through July 1, 1995, wrap fee accounts are included in the composite. For this period gross returns for wrap accounts are stated gross of all fees and brokerage firm wrap fees, while net returns have been calculated by reducing gross returns with an assumed maximum annual fee of 1%. ACV strategy inception: January 1, 1986.  Indexes are unmanaged, do not incur management fees, costs and expenses, and cannot be invested in directly. All returns include reinvestment of dividends and interest. Performance data is historical. Past performance does not guarantee future results. Current performance may be lower or higher than the performance quoted. Investing involves risk including possible loss of principal.

Portfolio data is from a representative All-Cap Value account and is presented as supplemental to a GIPS® Composite Report that is considered an integral part of the above presentation. Individual portfolio characteristics may vary from that of the representative portfolio. All statistics except for Weighted Average Market Capitalization, Current Yield, Active Share and Annual Turnover are median values. Current Yield is the weighted average of each stock’s current yield. Current yield of a stock is the annual dividend per share divided by price per share. Price/Earnings Ratio shows the multiple of earnings at which a stock sells as determined by the ratio of the company’s most recent month-end share price to the company’s earnings per share for the trailing twelve months (TTM). Price/Book ratio shows a company’s most recent month-end share price to the company’s book value per share for the trailing twelve months. Book value is the total assets of a company, less total liabilities. Return on Assets is the percentage a company earns on its assets in a given year. Net income divided by total assets shows how effectively a company uses its assets to generate profits. Return on Equity is the percentage a company earns on shareholder’s equity. Net income divided by average shareholder’s equity indicates how effectively management has invested shareholder’s equity. Active Share measures the percentage of holdings in a representative All-Cap Value portfolio that differ from the benchmark holdings either in name or weight at March 31, 2024. Annual Turnover represents the average percentage of a representative portfolio’s holdings that have changed annually since the strategy’s inception.
