Catalyst/Lyons Tactical Allocation Fund (CLTAX) Awarded Best Flexible Portfolio Fund

Huntington, NY – March 1, 2018 – Catalyst Funds, an alternative-focused mutual fund company, is pleased to announce that the Catalyst/Lyons Tactical Allocation Fund (CLTAX) has received a 2018 Lipper Fund Award as the Best Flexible Portfolio Fund out of 120 funds for the five years ending November 30, 2017.

"Catalyst is pleased that Lipper has honored the Catalyst/Lyons Tactical Allocation Fund with this award," said Jerry Szilagyi, CEO of Catalyst Funds.

CLTAX offers a different approach to tactical investing by employing a slow-moving quantitative risk model intended to maintain full and sustained equity exposure during secular bull markets while protecting capital in a sustained bear market. This focus has allowed the Fund to avoid whipsaw that commonly afflicts tactical managers during bull market corrections. The Fund has remained fully invested in equities since July 2012 inception. While maintaining this allocation, the sub-advisor employs a valuebased investing discipline intended to own high quality companies at relatively attractive valuations.

“This is the second Lipper Fund Award for the Catalyst/Lyons Tactical Allocation Fund,” said Sander Read, CEO of Lyons Wealth Management, LLC, the fund’s sub-advisor. “The repeat recognition as Best Flexible Portfolio Fund demonstrates the value of our offense-first philosophy.”

The Thomson Reuters Lipper Fund Awards are presented to the Lipper Leaders with the highest Consistent Return (Effective Return) value within each fund category. Awards are given separately for three, five and ten-year time periods. Information about the Lipper Fund Award calculation methodology may be found at http://www.lipperfundawards.com/Awards/UnitedStates. The Awards are presented annually at the Lipper Alpha Forum to honor funds that have excelled at consistently providing strong riskadjusted performance relative to peers.

CLTAX is sub-advised by Lyons Wealth Management. The Fund trades under the tickers CLTAX, CLTCX and CLTIX. For more information on the Catalyst/Lyons Tactical Allocation Fund and Catalyst Funds mutual fund products, please visit: www.catalystmf.com.

Lipper Fund Classification Awards
The currency for the calculation corresponds to the currency of the country for which the awards are calculated and relies on monthly data. Classification averages are calculated with all eligible share classes for each eligible classification. The calculation periods extend over 36, 60, and 120 months. The highest Lipper Leader for Consistent Return (Effective Return) value within each eligible classification determines the fund classification winner over three, five, or 10 years. For a detailed explanation, please review the Lipper Leaders methodology document on www.lipperalpha.financial.thomsonreuters.com.

Fund classification awards are given to the company that has the day-to-day responsibility of investing and monitoring the assets under management within the fund’s portfolio in order to achieve the investment objectives of the fund. This company is also referred to as a portfolio management company or investment advisor. The award goes to the fund management company in case that no such company has been appointed or several such companies share the task.

US local classifications are used in the United States, rather than Lipper Global classifications. Only one share class (the one with the best Lipper Leader score) is used for each portfolio in determining asset class and overall awards. The calculation periods end at November-end of the respective evaluation year.

2018 is on track to be a record year for buyback announcements, driven by a strong economy and tax-reform legislation. Companies, including Wells Fargo (WFC) and Valero Energy (VLO), have already announced their intentions to return some of the excess cash to shareholders, with a $22.6 billion and $2.5 billion buyback announcement, respectively. While tax reductions alone position 2018 as a record-setting year, repatriated cash filtering into buybacks significantly increases this probability.

Catalyst/Millburn Hedge Strategy Fund (MBXIX) and Catalyst Dynamic

Huntington, NY – February 21, 2018 - Catalyst Funds, an alternative-focused mutual fund company, is pleased to announce that two of its mutual funds have been nominated by Investors Choice Awards 2018: New York for outstanding investment managers. The Catalyst/Millburn Hedge Strategy Fund (Tickers: MBXAX, MBXCX, MBXIX) has been nominated in two categories: Multi-Strategy Fund category and Multi-Strategy Fund-Long Term Performance category. The Catalyst Dynamic Alpha Fund (Tickers: CPEAX, CPECX, CPEIX) has been nominated in the North American Long Only Equity Fund category.

The awards are judged by a distinguished panel of institutional investors that take into account a set of qualitative criteria covering the investment process, risk management framework and depth of research team, as well as a set of quantitative performance measures including annualized returns, volatility, and maximum drawdown.

“We are honored to have two of our funds nominated for the prestigious Investors Choice Awards,” said Jerry Szilagyi, CEO of Catalyst Funds. “These nominations are evidence that many investors share our goals and beliefs to provide value over time and across a range of market conditions.”

MBXIX’s portfolio is comprised of two distinct components: long/short futures, commodities & FX and global equity exposure. The long/short futures and forward positions in currency, fixed income, stock index and commodity instruments are determined by multi-factor, quantitative and systematic trading and investment strategies, which respond to varied market conditions. This portfolio of global liquid instruments and strategies has historically performed well in periods of stress for equities. MBXIX is subadvised by Millburn Ridgefield Corporation

CPEIX’s portfolio systematically analyzes equities across all sectors and market capitalizations. A timetested methodology utilized for over 30 years is implemented for security selection. The defined buy and sell methodology ensures a replicable approach to seeking alpha in all market conditions. The Fund eliminates artificial market segmentations to concentrate on sectors, trends and exposures exhibiting characteristics of emerging growth. The Fund maintains a concentrated portfolio of 20 to 30 stocks and will invest at least 80% of holdings in equity securities.

There is no assurance that the Fund will achieve its investment objective.

MBXIX Disclosures: Investing in the Fund carries certain risks. The Fund will invest a percentage of its assets in derivatives, such as futures and options contracts. The use of such derivatives and the resulting high portfolio turn-over may expose the Fund to additional risks that it would not be subject to if it invested directly in the securities and commodities underlying those derivatives. The Fund may experience losses that exceed those experienced by funds that do not use futures contracts, options and hedging strategies. Investing in commodities markets may subject the Fund to greater volatility than investments in traditional securities. Currency trading risks include market risk, credit risk and country risk. Foreign investing involves risks not typically associated with U.S. investments. Changes in interest rates and the liquidity of certain investments could affect the Fund’s overall performance. The Fund is non-diversified and as a result, changes in the value of a single security may have significant effect on the Fund’s value. Other risks include U.S. Government securities risks and investments in fixed income securities. Typically, a rise in interest rates causes a decline in the value of fixed income securities or derivatives owned by the Fund. Furthermore, the use of leveraging can magnify the potential for gain or loss and amplify the effects of market volatility on the Fund’s share price. The Fund is subject to regulatory change and tax risks; changes to current rules could increase costs associated with an investment in the Fund. These factors may affect the value of your investment.

CPEIX Disclosures: Investing in the Fund carries certain risks. The value of the Fund may decrease in response to the activities and financial prospects of an individual security in the Fund’s portfolio. The Fund is non-diversified and may invest a greater percentage of its assets in a particular issue and may own fewer securities than other mutual funds. The performance of the Fund may be subject to substantial short-term changes. To the extent the Fund invests in the stocks of smaller-sized companies, the Fund may be subject to additional risks, including the risk that earnings and prospects of these companies are more volatile than larger companies. Smaller-sized companies may experience higher failure rates than larger companies and normally have lower trading volume than larger companies. These factors may affect the value of your investment.

By most accounts, 2018 brings predictions of continued market growth and economic expansion. Recently, the Dow Jones industrial average closed over 26,000 for the first time. A new, pro-business tax bill was signed at the close of 2017, and more like-minded policies are expected to push an already all-time-high equities market even higher. But what happens if the opposite happens? Can your portfolio weather such a storm?

It's been a solid comeback story, with prices rising over 50% since the June low last summer. 2018 has laid the stage for oil’s strongest annual start since 2014. It's been a solid comeback story, with prices rising over 50% since the June low last summer. After years of sluggish returns and dragged-down prices, oil made a rebound. The question is whether that rebound will continue through 2018, if it will take a pause and consolidate, or if this bull's run is near a conclusion.
