The net asset value (NAV) of a closed-end fund is the market value of the
underlying investments (i.e., stocks and bonds) in the Fund's portfolio,
minus liabilities, divided by the total number of Fund shares outstanding.
However, the Fund also has a market price; the value at which it trades on
an exchange. If the market price is above the NAV the Fund is trading at a
premium. If the market price is below the NAV the Fund is trading at a
discount.

Returns for the Fund are total returns, which include dividends, after
deducting Fund expenses. The Fund's performance is calculated assuming that
a shareholder reinvested all distributions and exercised all primary rights
in the Fund's rights offerings. Past performance cannot predict future
investment results.

Performance will fluctuate with changes in market conditions. Current
performance may be lower or higher than the performance data shown.
Performance information shown does not reflect the deduction of taxes that
shareholders would pay on Fund distributions or the sale of Fund shares.
Shareholders must be willing to tolerate significant fluctuations in the
value of their investment. An investment in the Fund involves risk,
including loss of principal.
