Notes to Financial Statements
A. Significant Accounting Policies
Global Discovery Fund (the "Fund") is a diversified series of Global/International Fund, Inc. (formerly known as
Scudder Global Fund, Inc.), a Maryland corporation registered under the Investment Company Act of 1940, as
amended, as an open-end management investment company.
Effective April 16, 1998, the Fund changed its name from Scudder Global Discovery Fund to Global Discovery
Fund and an additional three classes of shares were offered, namely Classes A, B and C. Existing shares of
Global Discovery Fund outstanding on that date were redesignated Scudder Shares. Class A shares are sold to
investors subject to an initial sales charge. Class B shares are sold without an initial sales charge but are subject to
higher ongoing expenses than Class A and Scudder Shares and a contingent deferred sales charge payable upon
certain redemptions. Class B shares automatically convert to Class A shares six years after issuance. Class C
shares are sold without an initial sales charge but are subject to higher ongoing expenses than Class A and
Scudder Shares and a contingent deferred sales charge payable upon certain redemptions within one year of
purchase. Class C shares do not convert into another class. Scudder Shares are generally not available to new
investors and are not subject to initial or contingent deferred sales charges.
Investment income, realized and unrealized capital gains and losses, and certain fund-level expenses and expense
reductions, if any, are borne pro rata on the basis of relative net assets by the holders of all classes of shares
except that each class bears expenses unique to that class. Each class of shares differs in its respective
distribution, shareholder services, administrative services and certain other class-specific expenses and expense
reductions. All shares of the Fund have equal rights with respect to voting.
