¹ Expense ratios shown are as of a Fund's most recent prospectus or summary prospectus; September 25, 2013, for Amana Income, Amana Growth, and Amana Developing World; March 27, 2014, for Sextant Growth, Sextant International, Sextant Core, Sextant Global High Income, Sextant Short-Term Bond and Sextant Bond Income; and March 27, 2014, for Idaho Tax-Exempt.

² A Fund's 30-Day Yield is calculated by dividing the net investment income per share during the preceding 30 days by the net asset value per share on the last day of the period. The 30-Day Yield provides an estimate of a Fund's investment income rate, but may not equal the actual income distribution rate. Without the voluntary expense cap, the 30-Day Yield for Sextant Short-Term Bond Fund would have been 0.29%, Sextant Bond Income Fund would have been 1.95%, and Sextant Global High Income Fund would have been 2.50%.
