¹ Expense ratios shown are as of a Fund's most recent prospectus or summary prospectus; August 15, 2014, 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. The Adviser has voluntarily capped actual expenses of Sextant Short-Term Bond at 0.75% and actual expenses of Sextant Bond Income and Sextant Global High Income at 0.90% through March 31, 2015.

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 0.26%, Sextant Bond Income Fund would have been 2.06%, and Sextant Global High Income Fund would have been 3.73%.

Performance data quoted represents past performance which is no guarantee of future results. Investment return and principal value of an investment will fluctuate so that an investor's shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost. Current performance may be higher or lower than performance data quoted. Standardized returns current to the most recent month-end can be obtained by visiting our Month-End Returns Page or by calling toll free 1-800-SATURNA. Saturna Capital, the Funds' adviser, has absorbed, currently or in the past, certain Fund expenses, without which total returns would have been lower.
