Calamos Opportunistic Value Fund

NAPERVILLE, Ill., March 4, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- www.calamos.com/value  Calamos is pleased to announce it has changed the name of the Calamos Value Fund (A Shares: CVAAX; B Shares: CVABX; C Shares: CVACX; I Shares: CVAIX) to the Calamos Opportunistic Value Fund, effective March 1, 2014.  The new name is intended to better reflect the investment approach and scope of the fund, which have not changed.

The Calamos Value Team joined the firm in 2012 and assumed management of the fund. The team's approach to value investing contrasts with traditional buy-and-hold "deep value" funds, operating with higher turnover and utilizing option strategies to manage risk reward.  The term "opportunistic" relates to ways in which the Calamos Value Team enters and exits positions in the fund, the speed at which the team does so, as well as the openness and agility used to react to new investment possibilities.

Jeff Miller, Senior Vice President and Co-Portfolio Manager of the fund, stated: "The Calamos Opportunistic Value Fund pursues a value style focused on investing in strong operating businesses with transient reasons for being undervalued, special situations like mergers and spinoffs, and complex or misunderstood companies.  Furthermore, the fund deploys a trading strategy that includes the use of options strategies to manage risk and seek to enhance returns. As a result, the fund offers distinct characteristics and a dynamic approach that distinguishes it from its peer group. When opportunity knocks, the Calamos Value Team opens the door."

For more information about the fund, including a video by Jeff Miller detailing the team's opportunistic approach to value investing, please visit www.calamos.com/value.
