Common Shares Dividend Distribution Information 
The distributions listed in the table below reflect the amount of cash payment per share.  A portion of the cash distribution may represent return of capital.  Any portion of the Fund’s distribution that is a return of capital does not necessarily reflect the Fund’s investment performance and should not be confused with “yield” or “income”. SEC 19(a) Shareholder Notices are available on this website on the page labeled “Reports & Notices”.  Each 19(a) Shareholder Notice provides an estimate of the sources of each distribution based on U.S. generally accepted accounting principles which may differ from federal income tax regulations.  On the webpage labeled “Tax Information”, we have posted the annual Tax Information Letter for each calendar year that informs shareholders of the sources of distributions for federal income tax purposes.
