The timing of the closing of each Fund's VMTP and redemption of ARPS with VMTP will vary and is subject to a number of factors, including, but not limited to, the negotiation of definitive agreements, changes in interest rates and other market conditions, the willingness of buyers to purchase VMTP, the eligibility of collateral held by the Funds and the availability of attractive credit ratings, any of which may delay or prevent the closing of a Fund's offering of VMTP and redemption of such Fund's ARPS. Accordingly, the Funds' Boards of Trustees will determine, based on the facts and circumstances applicable to each Fund at any particular time, when each Fund's VMTP offering and redemption of each Fund's ARPS will occur. There can be no assurance that all or any portion of any Fund's ARPS will be redeemed.
