The Fund aims to pay a distribution at a rate that reflects the actual net investment income. A portion of any distribution may be treated as paid from sources other than net investment income, including, but not limited to, short term capital gain, long term capital gain or return on capital. The final determination of the source and tax characteristics of these distributions will depend on the investment experience of the Fund during its financial year and will be made after the Fund's year-end. The fund sends investors a Form 1099-DIV for the calendar year, which specifies how these distributions are to be reported for federal income tax purposes.
