1Total Annual Fund Operating Expense Waivers. SSGA FM, as the investment adviser to each Fund is contractually obligated, through April 30, 2022 (i) to waive up to the full amount of the advisory fee payable by each Fund, and/or (ii) to reimburse a Fund for expenses to the extent that Total Annual Fund Operating Expenses (exclusive of non-recurring account fees, interest, taxes, extraordinary expenses, acquired fund fees, any class-specific expenses, such as distribution, shareholder servicing, sub-transfer agency and administration fees) exceed 0.07% of average daily net assets on an annual basis (the “Total Annual Fund Operating Expense Waiver”). The Total Annual Fund Operating Expense Waiver may not be terminated prior to April 30, 2022 with respect to any Fund except with approval of the Fund’s Board of Trustees.
The Fund’s investment adviser, SSGA Funds Management, Inc. (the “Adviser” or “SSGA FM”) and its affiliates, may voluntarily reduce all or a portion of their fees and/or reimburse expenses of the Fund or a share class to the extent necessary to maintain a certain minimum net yield, which may vary from time to time and from share class to share class within the Fund, in SSGA FM’s sole discretion (any such waiver or reimbursement of expenses being referred to herein as a “Voluntary Reduction”), or a yield below a specified level, which may vary from time to time in the Adviser’s sole discretion. The Fund has agreed, subject to certain limitations, to reimburse the Adviser and its affiliates for the full dollar amount of any Voluntary Reduction incurred beginning on May 1, 2020. During the fiscal year ended December 31, 2020, the Adviser and its affiliates waived fees and/or reimbursed expense sunder the Voluntary Reduction. Each of the Adviser and its affiliates may, in its sole discretion, irrevocably waive receipt of any or all reimbursement amounts due from the Fund. Any future reimbursement by the Fund of the Voluntary Reduction would increase the Fund’s expenses and may reduce the Fund’s yield during such period. There is no guarantee that the Voluntary Reduction will be in effect at any given time or that the Fund will be able to avoid a negative yield.
Holdings subject to change.
