Under the terms of each Fund's managed distribution policy, the Fund seeks to maintain a consistent distribution level derived from the income and capital gains generated from the Fund's investment portfolio. Shareholders should note that if the Fund's aggregate net investment income and net realized capital gains are less than the amount of the distributions paid, the difference will be distributed from the Fund's assets and may constitute a return of the shareholder's capital. The Board of Directors may modify, terminate or suspend the managed distribution policy at any time. Any such modification, termination or suspension could have an adverse effect on the market price of the Fund's shares.

The Fund's distributions have been set based on the current level of income generated from the Fund's investment portfolio and accumulated capital gains, if any. Based on the Fund's tax accounting records, which also factors in currency fluctuations, each Fund's estimated source of cumulative fiscal year-to-date distributions is presented in the table below:
