Important Information: All investing involves risk including the possible loss of principal. Investing in value stocks may limit downside risk over time; however, the Funds may produce more modest gains than riskier stock funds as a trade-off for this potentially lower risk. Because the Funds may invest in fewer issuers than a more diversified portfolio, the fluctuating value of a single holding may have a greater effect on the Funds’ value. The Funds may participate in a securities lending program. The use of futures contracts for cash management may subject the Funds to losing more money than invested. In addition, the American Beacon Shapiro SMID Cap Fund is subject to the following risk: Investing in small- or mid-capitalization stocks may involve greater volatility and lower liquidity than larger company stocks. Please see the prospectus for a complete discussion of each Fund’s risks. There can be no assurances that the investment objectives of these Funds will be met.

The Funds are distributed by Foreside Fund Services, LLC.
