ASP, BSP, CSP and SLA distributions are payable in cash or, pursuant to the funds' dividend reinvestment plans, reinvested in additional shares of the funds' common stock. Under each fund's plan, fund shares will be purchased on the open market when the price of the fund's shares on the New York Stock Exchange plus per share fees is less than a 5% premium over the fund's most recently calculated net asset value per share. If, at the close of business on the dividend payment date, the shares purchased in the open market are insufficient to satisfy the dividend reinvestment requirement, payment of the dividend, or the remaining portion, will be accepted in authorized but unissued shares of the fund. These shares will be issued at a per-share price equal to the higher of (a) the net asset value per share as of the close of business on the payment date or (b) 95% of the closing market price per share on the payment date.


MRF distributions are payable in cash or, pursuant to the fund's dividend reinvestment plan, reinvested in additional shares of the fund's common stock. If you participate in the plan, you will receive the equivalent in shares of the fund as follows: (1) if the market price of the shares on the payment date of the dividend or distribution is equal to or exceeds the fund's net asset value, participants will be issued fund shares at the higher of net asset value or 95% of the market price; or (2) if the market price is lower than net asset value, the plan agent will receive the dividend or capital gain distributions in cash and apply them to buy fund shares on your behalf in the open market, on the New York Stock Exchange or elsewhere, for your account. If the market price exceeds the net asset value of the fund's shares before the plan agent has completed its purchases, the average per-share purchase price paid by the plan agent may exceed the net asset value of the fund's shares. This would result in the acquisition of fewer shares than if the dividend or capital gain distributions had been paid in shares issued by the fund.

XAA, MXA and MXN distributions are payable in cash or, pursuant to the funds' dividend reinvestment plans, reinvested in additional shares of the funds' common stock. Under each fund's plan, fund shares will be purchased on the exchange on which the fund is listed or elsewhere on the open market.

During certain periods, each fund may pay distributions at a rate that may be more or less than the amount of net investment income actually earned by the fund during the period. Each fund will provide a notice, as required by Section 19(a) of the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended, for any distribution that does not consist solely of net investment income. Any such notice will provide information regarding the estimated amounts of the distribution derived from net investment income, net realized capital gains and return of capital. Such notices will be for informational purposes only and the amounts indicated in such notices likely will differ from the ultimate federal income tax characterization of distributions reported to shareholders on Form 1099-DIV after year end.
