Objective:

The Micro Cap Growth Portfolio seeks long-term growth of capital by investing in growing micro cap companies. Income is an objective only when consistent with long-term growth of capital. Currently, we do not expect the Portfolio’s investments to generate substantial income.

Strategy:

This portfolio invests primarily in growing micro cap companies with market capitalizations of less than $1 billion at the time of purchase. We focus on the smallest companies that we believe have great growth potential and are trading at reasonable prices relative to our 5-year earnings growth projections. The Micro Cap Growth Portfolio may invest up to 30% of its total assets in foreign securities.

Compared to Other Wasatch Portfolios:
This Portfolio Is similar to, but invests in smaller companies than Small Cap Growth.
