Under the terms of the Fund's managed distribution policy, the Fund seeks to
maintain a consistent distribution level, stated as a fixed rate per common
share per month, that may be paid in part or in full from net investment
income and realized capital gains, or a combination thereof. Shareholders
should note, however, that if the Fund's aggregate net investment income and
net realized capital gains are less than the amount of the distribution level,
the difference will be distributed from the Fund's assets and will constitute
a return of the shareholder's capital. A return of capital is not taxable;
rather it reduces a shareholder's tax basis in his or her shares of the Fund.

The Board of Directors may reduce the Fund's monthly distribution rate in the
future or terminate or suspend the managed distribution policy at any time.
Any such reduction in the monthly distribution rate, termination or suspension
could have an adverse effect on the market price of the Fund's shares.

Based on the Fund's accounting records as of the date of this press release,
the Fund estimates that approximately 82.91% of the cumulative distributions
through March 2013 are sourced from net investment income and 17.09%
constitutes a return of shareholder’s capital. The estimated components of
each distribution will be provided to shareholders of record in a separate

information is available, the Fund will send shareholders a Form 1099-DIV, if
applicable, specifying how the distributions paid by the Fund during the prior
calendar year should be characterized for purposes of reporting the
distributions on a shareholder's tax return (e.g., ordinary income, long-term
capital gain or return of capital).
