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.

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.

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. Interest rate risk is the risk that bond prices overall, including the prices of securities held by the Fund, will decline over short or even long periods of time due to rising interest rates. These factors may affect the value of your investment. To obtain the most recent month-end performance data or the Fund's current prospectus, please call the fund at (866) 447-4228.

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.
