Strategy And Objective

The fund’s investment objective is to seek total return with an emphasis on current income, but also considering capital preservation. The fund’s objective may be changed without shareholder approval. MFS normally invests the fund’s assets primarily in debt instruments. The fund’s dollar-weighted average effective maturity will normally not exceed five years. In determining an instrument’s effective maturity, MFS uses the instrument’s stated maturity or, if applicable, an earlier date on which MFS believes it is probable that a maturity-shortening device (such as a call, put, pre-refunding, prepayment or redemption provision, or an adjustable coupon) will cause the instrument to be repaid. Such an earlier date can be substantially shorter than the instrument’s stated maturity.
