Pioneer Diversified High Income Trust (NYSE Amex: HNW) today announced a revised payable date for the fund’s April distribution declared on April 5, 2011. The payable date will be May 2, 2011. The Ex Date, Record Date, and Distribution Rate reported on April 5, 2011 remain unchanged.
HNW currently has a level distribution policy, which is intended to provide investors with a relatively stable monthly distribution. The level distribution policy is subject to regular review by the Board of Trustees to determine whether it continues to be in the best interests of the fund and its shareholders. There can be no assurance that this policy will be maintained in the future or maintained at its current level. Investors should not necessarily draw any conclusions about the fund's investment performance from the amount of this distribution or from the terms of the fund's level distribution policy.
At this time, HNW believes that the April distribution and a portion of its fiscal year-to-date cumulative distributions may include a return of capital in addition to net investment income and long-term capital gains. A return of capital is not a distribution of income or capital gains from the fund, does not necessarily reflect the fund's investment performance, and should not be considered "yield" or "income." The final determination of tax characteristics of the fund’s distributions will occur after the end of the year, at which time it will be reported to shareholders.HNW trades on the NYSE Amex.

There is a one-time public offering and once issued, common shares of closed-end funds are bought and sold in the open market through a stock exchange and frequently trade at prices lower than their net asset value. Net Asset Value (NAV) is total assets less total liabilities divided by the number of common shares outstanding.
