Current performance may be lower or higher than the quoted past performance, which cannot guarantee future results. Return and yield will vary.

You could lose money by investing in the Fund. Although the Fund seeks to preserve the value of your investment at $1.00 per share, it cannot guarantee it will do so. An investment in the Fund is not insured or guaranteed by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation or any other government agency. The Fund's sponsor has no legal obligation to provide financial support to the Fund, and you should not expect that the sponsor will provide financial support to the Fund at any time.

1A method of calculating a money fund's yield by annualizing the fund's net investment income for the last seven days of each period divided by the fund's net asset value at the end of the period.

2 In an effort to maintain a zero or positive net yield for the fund, T. Rowe Price has voluntarily waived all or a portion of the management fee it is entitled to receive from the fund. A fee waiver has the effect of increasing the fund's net yield. The 7-day yield without waiver represents what the yield would have been if we were not waiving our management fee. This voluntary waiver is in addition to any contractual expense ratio limitation in effect for the fund and may be amended or terminated at any time without prior notice. Please see the prospectus for more details.

Year-to-date figures are not annualized and represent total return, which includes reinvested distributions (income and capital gains) and any change in share price for the given period. The yield quotation more closely reflects the current earnings of the money market fund than the total return quotation.
3Average annual total return figures include reinvested dividends and capital gain distributions.
^ The gross expense ratio reflects the fund expenses as stated in the fee table of the fund's prospectus prior to the deduction of any waiver or reimbursement. The net expense ratio reflects fund expenses after the deduction of any waiver or reimbursement. If a fund has an active contractual expense limitation, the expiration date is shown below the gross and net expense ratio values above. Expense ratios are as of the most recent prospectus.
