(1) You should not draw any conclusion about the Fund’s investment performance from the amount of this distribution or the terms of the Fund’s distribution policy.

(2) The amounts and sources of distributions reported in this 19(a) Notice are estimates only and are not provided for tax reporting purposes. Actual amounts and sources of amounts for tax reporting purposes will depend on the Fund’s investment experience over the remainder of its financial year and may be subject to change as a result of tax regulations. The Fund will send you a Form 1099-DIV for the calendar year which will tell you how to report these distributions for federal income tax purposes.

(3) The Fund believes it has distributed more than its income and net realized capital gains; therefore, part of your distribution may be a return of capital.

A return of capital distribution does not necessarily reflect the performance of the Fund’s investments and should not be confused with “yield” or “income”.
