(a) Dodge & Cox has contractually agreed to reimburse the Fund for all ordinary expenses to the extent necessary to maintain total annual fund operating expenses at 0.70% through April 30, 2022. The term of the agreement renews annually thereafter unless terminated with 30 daysí written notice by either party prior to the end of the term.
(b) Active share is a measure of how much an investment portfolio differs from its benchmark index, based on a scale of 0% (complete overlap with the index) to 100% (no overlap). Overlap for each security in the Fund is the lower of either its percentage weight in the Fund or its percentage weight in the relevant index. Active share is calculated as 100% minus the sum of the overlapping security weights.
(c) Price-to-earnings (P/E) ratios are calculated using 12-month forward earnings estimates from third-party sources as of the reporting period. Estimates reflect a consensus of sell-side analyst estimates, which may lag as market conditions change.
(d) Excludes derivatives.
(e) The Fund generally classifies a company based on its country of incorporation, but may designate a different country in certain circumstances. A company located in a developed market country may still be considered an “emerging markets issuer” for other purposes if it has significant economic exposure to emerging markets.
(f) The Fund’s portfolio holdings are subject to change without notice. The mention of specific securities is not a recommendation to buy, sell, or hold any particular security and is not indicative of Dodge & Cox's current or future trading activity.
(g) Net Cash & Other includes cash, short-term investments, unrealized gain (loss) on derivatives, receivables, and payables.

The Fund's total returns include the reinvestment of dividend and capital gain distributions, but have not been adjusted for any income taxes payable by shareholders on these distributions or on Fund share redemptions. Index returns include dividends but, unlike Fund returns, do not reflect fees or expenses. The MSCI Emerging Markets Index captures large and mid cap representation across 27 Emerging Markets (EM) countries. Results reflect dividends net of withholding taxes. MSCI makes no express or implied warranties or representations and shall have no liability whatsoever with respect to any MSCI data contained herein. The MSCI data may not be further redistributed or used as a basis for other indices or any securities or financial products. This report is not approved, reviewed, or produced by MSCI. Expense reimbursements have been in effect for the Fund since its inception. Without the expense reimbursements, returns for the Fund would have been lower. All returns are stated in U.S. dollars, unless otherwise noted.
