capabilities and Invesco's commitment to an investment culture that's
essential for us to provide enduring results for our fund investors," said

The Lipper Fund Awards program highlights funds that have excelled in
delivering consistently strong risk-adjusted performance, relative to peers.
The awards are given to funds in 23 countries in Asia, Europe and North
America. Lipper designates award-winning funds in most individual
classifications for the three-, five- and 10-year periods and fund family
awards covering three years.

Lipper Fund Awards are based on Lipper's Consistent Return calculation. Lipper
scores for Consistent Return reflect funds' historical risk-adjusted returns
relative to funds in the same Lipper classification and include each fund's
expenses and reinvested distributions, but exclude sales charges. Consistent
Return values are calculated with all eligible share classes for each eligible
classification. The highest Lipper Leader for Consistent Return value within
each eligible classification determines the fund classification winner over
three, five or 10 years. Lipper, a Thomson Reuters company, is a leading
global provider of mutual fund information and analysis to fund companies,
financial intermediaries and media organizations.

Any reference to a ranking, a rating or an award provides no guarantee for
future performance results and is not constant over time.
