The Funds seek to pay distributions at rates that reflect net investment income actually earned and projected future income.

A portion of each 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 of capital. The final determination of the source and tax characteristics of these distributions will depend upon each Fund’s investment experience during its fiscal year and will be made after the Fund’s year end. Each Fund will send to investors a Form 1099-DIV for the calendar year that will define how to report these distributions for federal income tax purposes.
