We have not authorized anyone to provide any information or to make any representations other than those contained in this prospectus or in any free writing prospectuses we have prepared.

This prospectus is an offer to sell only the shares offered hereby, but only under circumstances and in jurisdictions where it is lawful to do so.
We've learned to embrace reform while preserving our strengths. We know that just because a process has worked and you've benefited from it, you've got to challenge everything that you're doing today and do that again tomorrow, and again the next day and again the day after that - to keep challenging the embedded process and be open to thoroughly researched enhancements, if warranted.
Knowing is one thing; having the wherewithal is another. As a research-driven firm, we emphasize upgrading skill through finding good people and efficiency via a faster technology platform to speed up our ability to dissect portfolios and analyze attribution.
And the investment effort is not just six people.
We leverage skill by having a constant press of specialist data vendors working on specific projects. One night I totaled up the people who for sure were working on GlobeFlex projects the majority of that day and it was over At GlobeFlex we stay alert to unintended bets to minimize risk, and are adaptable to enhancing our portfolio construction.
We increased the efficacy of our stock selection through creating sector-specific models and also tightened portfolio construction. The modifications on the alpha side weren't just to pull in better short-term performance although during the recent speculative market environment, better short-term performance would have been welcome ; rather, we were upgrading our skill level for the long term.
We'll always be fundamental stockpickers. We'll always be systematic in our approach. And we'll always be a focused, active, research-oriented manager.
But we also will always be flexible, because markets are never going to be so stable that you can figure it out once and for all. Your process has to be constantly evolutionary. Then customizing it to the way we want to build portfolios and being able to execute it quickly over to our trade- order management system.
The whole process is unbelievably adaptive. Our flexibility is enormous. Rather than portfolio-by-portfolio analytics, we can now "plug and play" as many variables as necessary both at the individual stock and portfolio level.
We've built a customized optimizer, which includes all our return, risk and transaction cost information. We continue to weigh the important questions: How good is our information? What is our sustainable edge? How much and what kind of risk are we taking?
We determine how quickly to trade a stock and how best to trade it via traditional channels or on crossing networks. Having all things integrated means we can truly focus on maximizing our information ratio, and with a strong dose of repeatability. We have never before been able to reach this level of knowledge and confidence -- knowing that we now have the tools to cover all the bases.
First, I focus on stock-level and concept-based research, enhancing our investment process over time. My second responsibility is client communication, explaining what we're doing from a strategic and portfolio perspective.
Third, I contribute to implementation, the actual buying and selling of securities, taking into account client guidelines and constraints.
So I'm not on an academic island in the middle of nowhere -- I conduct research, apply it, and am the champion of it internally and externally. I think what I've learned here is the importance of expanding on opportunity.
A good part of our long-term return comes from finding the right opportunities not yet discovered by other firms. GlobeFlex has a history of doing this, we have many examples, and it is a clear priority.
Our advantage comes from using a lot of technology such that our information is integrated. We also go outside to gather fresh and new information that is being ignored by other money managers.
We are successful because we are experienced, we have long-term trust with our research partners, and we put major up-front resources into staying ahead of the curve. Bob Anslow, in driving our research, lets us be creative while maintaining the philosophical tenets of the firm.
