Nuveen Investments announced that on April 9, 2010, the 26 Nuveen leveraged closed-end funds listed below each received a demand letter from a law firm on behalf of each fund’s common shareholders, alleging that Nuveen Asset Management (the fund’s Adviser) and the fund’s officers and Board of directors breached their fiduciary duties related to the redemption at par of the fund’s auction rate preferred shares (ARPS). The funds’ independent Board is evaluating the demand letters for each fund and at this time has deferred consideration of additional ARPS refinancings for all Nuveen closed-end funds with outstanding ARPS while this process moves forward.

Nuveen Investments remains committed to its refinancing goals of lowering the relative cost of leverage over time for common shareholders and providing liquidity at par for all outstanding ARPS issued by Nuveen funds, continues to believe that refinancings have been in the best interests of the funds’ common and preferred shareholders, and hopes that ARPS refinancings will resume soon.
