NOTE 1 -- ORGANIZATION AND NATURE OF OPERATIONS
The Evergreen Domestic Growth Funds (the "Funds") are separate series of open-end management investment
companies registered under the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended (the "Act"). The Evergreen
Domestic Growth Funds consist of Evergreen Fund, Evergreen Aggressive Growth Fund ("Aggressive Growth"),
Evergreen Limited Market Fund, Inc. ("Limited Market") and Evergreen U.S. Real Estate Equity Fund ("U.S.
Real Estate"), known collectively as the Funds.
Evergreen Fund's investment objective is to seek capital appreciation principally through investments in common
stock and securities convertible into or exchangeable for common stock of companies which are little-known,
relatively small or represent special situations which, in the opinion of the Fund's investment adviser, offer
potential for capital appreciation. Aggressive Growth seeks to achieve long-term capital appreciation by investing
primarily in common stocks of emerging growth companies and larger, more well established companies, all of
which are viewed by its investment adviser as having above-average appreciation potential. Limited Market
seeks to achieve capital appreciation principally through investing in the common stock of companies for which
there is a relatively limited trading market; income is not a factor in the selection of portfolio securities. U.S. Real
Estate's investment objective is long-term capital growth which it seeks to achieve through investment primarily in
equity securities of domestic companies which are principally engaged in the real estate industry or which own
significant real estate assets.
