Also, the MTP shares of two closed-end funds, Nuveen New Jersey Dividend Advantage Municipal Fund 2 (AMEX: NUJ) and Nuveen Pennsylvania Dividend Advantage Municipal Fund (AMEX: NXM) began trading on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) on Thursday, October 28, 2010.

MTP is a fixed rate form of preferred stock with a mandatory redemption period, in the case of these two offerings, of five years. By issuing MTP, the funds seeks to take advantage of the current historically low interest rate environment to lock in an attractive tax-exempt cost of leverage for a period as long as the term of the MTP. Issuing MTP helps the funds mitigate the risk of a significant increase in the cost of leverage should short-term interest rates rise.

Investors should consider the investment objectives and policies, risk considerations, charges and expenses of the funds carefully before investing.
