Distribution Policy

On December 11, 2013, the Fund announced that it will end its Managed Distribution Policy and implement a net investment income-based distribution policy effective January 1, 2014. The Managed Policy, as originally implemented, provided for quarterly dividends at an annualized rate equal to 7% of the Fund’s net asset value. The new policy has a stated goal of providing dependable, but not assured quarterly distributions out of the Fund’s accumulated net investment income and/or other sources, subject to the requirement of the Investment Company Act of 1940.

You should not draw any conclusions about the Fund’s investment performance or make any assumptions regarding future performance from the amount of this distribution or from the terms of the Fund’s Distribution Policy.

The amounts and sources of distributions reported in this Notice are only estimates and not for tax reporting purposes. The actual amounts and sources of the amounts for tax reporting purposes will depend on the Fund’s investment experience for the fiscal year and may be subject to changes based on tax regulations. Computershare, the Fund’s transfer agent, will mail you a Form 1099 for the calendar year that will tell you how to report these distributions for federal income tax purposes.
