As of August 31, 2013, the average maturity of the portfolio was 7.7 years. 
The Company has a Normal Course Issuer Bid ("NCIB") in place whereby shares of 
the Company may be purchased at times when the market price per share trades 
at a discount in excess of 8% to the Company's net asset value per share.  
During the month of August there were no shares purchased under the NCIB. 
The Company has in place leverage in the form of a loan facility.  The 
outstanding balance on the loan as of August 31, 2013 is US$112,000,000, which 
represents a decrease of $17,000,000 from the previous month. 
The leverage is used with the intent of enhancing returns by borrowing at 
interest rates that are lower than the relatively higher yields of the 
Asian-Pacific fixed income securities in which the Company invests.  The 
Company has entered into interest rate swap agreements in order to fix the 
interest payable on a portion of the credit facility.  Details regarding the 
revolving credit loan facility and the interest rate swap agreements are 
contained in the Company's annual and semi-annual reports to shareholders.
