The Bank of America Merrill Lynch U.S. High Yield Index and the S&P 500 were up 1.88% and 3.82% in the quarter, respectively. The new administration’s policy goals of increased infrastructure spending, reduced regulation and tax reform are being embraced enthusiastically by the markets and underpinning increasing GDP expectations. Additionally, the Federal Reserve’s December interest rate increase is being viewed as an affirmation of the strengthening economy, and speculation is they may be falling behind the curve. Unemployment finished the year at 4.7% and wages are gradually gaining momentum with average hourly earnings up 2.9%. Demand for high yield was the strongest since 2012, with inflows totaling over $11.1B. The net inflow follows three years of cumulative outflows totaling $45.1B. According to S&P, the default rate finished the year at 5.1% and was primarily driven by the Energy and Metals & Mining sectors. Excluding those two sectors the default rate was 2.40%. Transportation was the strongest sector for the quarter, returning 6.40%, followed closely by Energy at 5.98%. Energy, Steel and Metals & Mining were the best returning sectors for the year, returning 38.44%, 48.31% and 43.83%, respectively. CCCs outperformed BB and B-rated issuers in 4Q16, tightening 216bps and returning 5.94%. BBs and Bs tightened 52bps and 92bps, respectively, and returned 0.68% and 2.11%, respectively.

4) Portfolio Performance Summary: • • • • For the fourth quarter, the Angel Oak High Yield Opportunities fund returned 2.89%, outperforming the Bank of America U.S. High Yield Index Return of 1.88% by 101bps. High yield’s strong performance in the fourth quarter was supported by the OPEC production cut agreement and the surprise outcome of the U.S. presidential election. Investor optimism is high given the new administration’s objectives for growth driven by increased infrastructure spending, rollback of stifling regulations and tax reform. Expectations are further supported given Republican control of not only the White House but also the House and Senate. Demand for high yield surged late in the fourth quarter. Inflows into the high yield asset class totaled approximately $7.3B during the last six weeks of the year and finished with more than $11B flowing into the high yield asset. For the quarter, the CCC-rated segment of the market, which represents ~14.3% of the market, was the best performer, tightening 216bps and returning 5.94%. This compares with the higher-quality BB and B-rated segments of the marker, which tightened 52bps and 92bps, respectively, and returned 0.68% and 2.11%, respectively.

Corporates: • The high yield corporate allocation returned 2.89% for the fourth quarter and contributed 294bps to the total return of the portfolio. Risk assets are benefiting from the optimism and expectations brought about by the surprise presidential win by the Republicans as well as majorities in both the House and Senate. Along with the OPEC agreement to cut production, these events supported portfolio positioning and issuer selection, contributing to outperformance during the quarter. • Within the corporate allocation, the Healthcare sector was the largest positive contributor to attribution despite the negative return of -1.16% compared with the benchmark of -2.41%. The positive attribution reflects the significant underweight to the sector, 1.5% compared with 9.3%. The Healthcare sector reacted negatively to the surprise presidential win, given Republicans’ goal of repealing the Affordable Care Act and reducing prescription drug prices. The Basic Industry and Financial Services sectors were also significant positive contributors to performance during the quarter. The Basic Industry sector returned 3.58% compared with the benchmark return of 2.42%, and the performance is attributable to a fertilizer producer that is benefiting from recent improvement in product pricing. The Financial Services sector returned 4.65% compared with the benchmark return of 4.26% and is benefiting from our overweight to the sector and the new administration’s goal of reducing financial sector regulation to boost economic growth. • The Transportation sector was the primary negative contributor to performance in the quarter, returning 1.43% compared with the benchmark of 5.33%. Our overweight to the sector was a benefit but was offset by poor performance associated with a vehicle transportation and logistics provider. CLOs: • Q4 saw a huge amount of CLO supply in the form of new deals, refinancings and resets (extension of existing deal). The increase in supply was due to managers’ desire to issue prior to risk retention rules coming into force at the end of 2016. We viewed this as an attractive buying opportunity as CLOs had already underperformed loans and HY bonds. • Post-election, the demand for floating rate credit also increased, and we see this as a major positive tailwind in 2017, in addition to lower expected CLO supply.

This compares with the historical average of 580bps and 9.16% and the post-crisis lows of 335bps and 4.85%. Risk assets performed well across the board. Investment grade credit spreads are currently 129bps, only 43bps wide of their post-crisis tights, and leave little capacity to mitigate a rise in interest rates. The S&P 500 price-to-earnings ratio is over 18x estimated 2017 earnings, the highest level since the early 2000s. From a relative value perspective, high yield valuations appears among the least stretched, especially when considering their potential to benefit from an acceleration in growth and capacity for spread tightening if interest rates rise in line with consensus expectations. • The new administration’s policy objectives include increased infrastructure spending, reduction of burdensome regulations and tax reform, all of which should benefit growth. Early speculation is that the tax reform proposal will include elimination or reduction of the corporate deductibility of interest expense. High yield should benefit directly from this change, which could result in less leveraged balance sheets, stronger credit profiles and improved valuations. • In the context of an expected acceleration of economic growth balanced with current valuations, we are focused on the balance of risk and reward and our objective of long-term superior risk-adjusted returns. As such, we will opportunistically reduce the risk profile at the margin while also focusing on sectors that should directly benefit from the new administration’s policies such as Housing, Basic Materials and Financial Services. CLOs: • CLO allocation in the fund is diverse across a range of managers, with a bias toward more defensive positions with higher coupons and an average spread of 712bps over LIBOR. This may mean sacrificing potential price upside but should insulate the fund against potential spread widening. Angel Oak Capital Advisors, LLC 6

Principal loss is possible. Investments in debt securities typically decrease when interest rates rise. This risk is usually greater for longer-term debt securities. Investments in lower-rated and non-rated securities present a greater risk of loss to principal and interest than higher-rated securities. Investments in asset-backed and mortgage-backed securities include additional risks that investors should be aware of, including credit risk, prepayment risk, possible illiquidity and default, as well as increased susceptibility to adverse economic developments. Derivatives involve risks different from and, in certain cases, greater than the risks presented by more traditional investments. Derivatives may involve certain costs and risks such as illiquidity, interest rate, market, credit, management and the risk that a position could not be closed when most advantageous. Investing in derivatives could result in losing more than the amount invested. The Fund may make short sales of securities, which involves the risk that losses may exceed the original amount invested. Must be preceded or accompanied by a current prospectus.
