(a) Net assets are inclusive of Preferred Shares of $163 million and $79 million for the California Municipal Income Fund II and New York Municipal Income Fund II, respectively.
(b) Since the Funds' net earning rates fluctuate from month to month, there will be periods when the Funds may over-earn or under-earn their monthly dividend rate. This fluctuation will have the effect of adding to or subtracting from the Funds' undistributed (overdistributed) net investment income balances. The Funds' management analyzes the current and projected net earning rates prior to recommending dividend amounts to the Funds' Board of Trustees for declaration. There can be no assurance that the monthly dividend rates will remain at their current level or that the undistributed net investment income balances, if any, will be sufficient to cover any shortfall in earnings to meet the current dividend rate.
Allianz Global Investors Fund Management LLC ("AGIFM"), an indirect, wholly-owned subsidiary of Allianz Asset Management of America L.P., serves as the Funds' investment manager and is a member of Munich-based Allianz Group. Pacific Investment Management Company LLC, an AGIFM affiliate, serves as the Funds' sub-adviser.
