The continued performance of this fund is a testimony to our capabilities in this product category. The fund has a history of delivering on client expectations of consistent returns and reduction of equity market risk, and may serve as a potential portfolio diversifier. Since the inception of the fund more than twenty years ago, we have employed multiple investment strategies to respond to evolving and changing markets as well as to explore investment opportunities," said John P.

During the past year, Calamos has continued to evaluate market opportunities consistent with the fund's investment objective and strategy, risk/reward profile and achievement of the fund's investment objective. At this time we believe that reopening the fund is in the best interest of the fund's existing shareholders and allows us to seek to take advantage of a broader opportunity," said Calamos.
