100 Companies, 21 Days, 8 Countries...The Search for the "World's Best Growth Companies"
As part of the extensive due diligence process at Wasatch Funds, portfolio managers Ajay Krishnan and Laura Geritz along with a team of Wasatch equity analysts set out to find new investment opportunities in the first quarter of 2012. They visited over 100 companies in countries like Sri Lanka, Myanmar, Cambodia, Bangladesh, Laos, Thailand, Pakistan and India.
Trips like these are commonplace at Wasatch Funds and are an integral part of the investment process. Portfolio managers and analysts travel extensively, getting out in the field to interview management teams and see company operations firsthand. In fact, Wasatch research analysts are on the road an average of about three months every year.
The investment objectives of the Wasatch Frontier Emerging Small Countries Fund (WAFMX) and the Wasatch Emerging India Fund (WAINX) are long-term growth of capital.
Holdings are subject to change.

Current and future portfolio holdings are subject to risks and may change at any time. References to specific securities should not be construed as recommendations by the Fund or its Advisor.
Past performance is not indicative of future results.
Investing in small cap funds will be more volatile and loss of principal could be greater than investing in large cap or more diversified funds. Investing in foreign securities, especially in frontier and emerging markets, entails special risks, such as unstable currencies, highly volatile securities markets and political and social instability, which are described in more detail in the prospectus. Being non-diversified, WAFMX can invest a larger portion of its assets in the stocks of a limited number of companies than a diversified fund. Non-diversification increases the risk of loss to the Fund if the values of these securities decline.
An investor should consider investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses carefully before investing. To obtain a prospectus, containing this and other information, visit www.wasatchfunds.com or call 800.551.1700. Please read it carefully before investing.
