Managers Investment Group Launches Systematic Mid Cap Value Fund.

SAN FRANCISCO -- Managers Investment Group LLC ("Managers") today announced the latest offering in its 33-strategy Managers Family of Funds, the Managers AMG Systematic Mid Cap Value Fund. The new Fund, a counterpart to the large-cap oriented Managers AMG Systematic Value Fund, which has a 4-star Overall Morningstar Rating([R]), focuses on mid-cap companies. Both funds are available at financial institutions across the U.S. in A, C, and Institutional share classes (SYAMX, SYCMX, SYIMX).

Systematic Financial Management, L.P. ("Systematic"), the Fund's subadvisor, has focused solely on managing value-oriented portfolios across the capitalization spectrum for the past 25 years. Systematic's Mid Cap Value Fund substantially mirrors the separate account mid-cap portfolios the firm has been managing for large institutional investors since 2000.

Portfolio co-managers Ron Mushock, Partner, and Kevin McCreesh, CIO, leverage their proven investment process and the broad experience of the firm's 17-person investment team.

"Our underlying investment approach is designed to pursue value opportunities at the right time and avoid the well-known value trap," said Mr. Mushock. "We seek to identify attractively valued companies already exhibiting evidence of a sustainable and fundamental turnaround before investors recognize the paradigm shift and adjust their earnings expectations."

"This Fund provides access to Systematic's time-tested mid-cap value strategy, which is otherwise available only to institutions and high-net-worth investors," said John Streur, Senior Managing Partner of Managers Investment Group. "Investors can now invest in both of Systematic's Funds, knowing that the large- and mid-cap portfolios are being managed by the same investment team using the same underlying philosophy and process."

For each fund with at least a three-year history, Morningstar calculates a Morningstar Rating[TM] based on a Morningstar Risk-Adjusted Return measure that accounts for variation in a fund's monthly performance (including the effects of sales charges, loads and redemption fees), placing more emphasis on downward variations and rewarding consistent performance. The top 10% of funds in each category receive 5 stars, the next 22.5% receive 4 stars, then next 35% receive 3 stars, the next 22.5% receive 2 starts and the bottom 10% receive 1 star. (Each share class is counted as a fraction of one fund within this scale and rated separately, which may cause slight variations in the distribution percentages.) The Overall Morningstar Rating for a fund is derived from a weighted average of the performance figures associated with its three-, five-, and ten-year (if applicable) Morningstar Rating metrics. Managers AMG Systematic Value Fund was rated against the following numbers of U.S.-domiciled Large Value funds over the following time periods: 1,111 funds in the last three years ending December 31, 2006. With respect to these Large Value funds, Managers AMG Systematic Value Fund received a Morningstar Rating of 4 stars for the three-year period. Past performance is no guarantee of future results. Morningstar Rating is for the institutional share class only; other classes may have different performance characteristics. The ranking reflects the waiver of all or a portion of the Fund's fee. Without such waiver, the ranking may have been lower.
