IMPORTANT DISCLOSURE:  You 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 Plan.  The Fund estimates that it has distributed more than its
income and net realized capital gains; therefore, a portion of your distribution
may be a return of capital. A return of capital may occur for example, when some
or all of the money that you invested in the Fund is paid back to you. A return
of capital distribution does not necessarily reflect the Fund's investment
performance and should not be confused with 'yield' or 'income.'  The amounts
and sources of distributions reported in this Notice are only estimates and are
not being provided for tax reporting purposes.  The actual amounts and sources
of the amounts for accounting and/or 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.

based on its net asset value (NAV) for certain periods.
