This press release is not for tax reporting purposes but is being
provided to announce the amount of the Fund's distributions that have
been declared by the Board of Directors. In early 2019, after definitive
information is available, the Fund will send shareholders a Form
1099-DIV, if applicable, specifying how the distributions paid by the
Fund during the prior calendar year should be characterized for purposes
of reporting the distributions on a shareholder's tax return (e.g.,
ordinary income, long-term capital gain or return of capital).

The Fund is a non-diversified, closed-end management investment
company that is managed by Stone Harbor Investment Partners LP ("Stone
Harbor"). The Fund's primary investment objective is to maximize total
return, which consists of income on its investments and capital
appreciation.
There is no assurance that the Fund will achieve
its investment objective.

The Fund seeks to achieve its investment objective by investing at
least 80% of its net assets (plus borrowings for investment purposes) in
emerging markets securities ("the 80% policy"), which include fixed
income securities and other instruments, including derivatives, that are
economically tied to emerging market countries, that are denominated in
the predominant currency of the local market of an emerging market
country or whose performance is linked to those countries' markets,
currencies, economies or ability to repay loans.
A security or
instrument is economically tied to an emerging market country if it is
principally traded on the country's securities markets or if the issuer
is organized or principally operates in the country, derives a majority
of its income from its operations within the country or has a majority
of its assets within the country.
