may differ from GAAP. As such, all or a portion of this distribution may

The final tax character of any distribution declared in 2018 will be

The amounts and sources of distributions reported in this 19(a)
Notice are only estimates and not for tax reporting purposes. The actual
amounts and sources of the amounts for tax reporting purposes will
depend upon the Fund's investment experience during the remainder of its
fiscal year and may be subject to changes based on tax regulations. The
Fund will send you a Form 1099-DIV for the calendar year that will tell
you how to report these distributions for federal income tax purposes.

While the NAV performance may be indicative of the Fund's investment
performance, it does not measure the value of a shareholder's investment
in the Fund. The value of a shareholder's investment in the Fund is
determined by the Fund's market price, which is based on the supply and
demand for the Fund's shares in the open market. Past performance does
not guarantee future results. Shareholders should not draw any
conclusions about the Fund's investment performance from the amount of
this distribution or from the terms of the Fund's Managed Distribution
Plan.

Furthermore, the Board of Trustees reviews the amount of any potential
distribution and the income, capital gain or capital available. The
Board of Trustees will continue to monitor the Fund's distribution
level, taking into consideration the Fund's net asset value and the
financial market environment. The Fund's distribution policy is subject
to modification by the Board of Trustees at any time. The distribution
rate should not be considered the dividend yield or total return on an
investment in the Fund.
