MTP is a fixed rate form of preferred stock with a mandatory redemption
period, in the case of this offering, of three years. By issuing MTP,
the fund seeks to take advantage of the current historically low
interest rate environment to lock in an attractive tax-exempt cost of
leverage for a period as long as the term of the MTP. Issuing MTP helps
the fund mitigate the risk of a significant increase in its cost of
leverage should short-term interest rates rise.
Investors should consider the investment objectives and policies,
risk considerations, charges and expenses of the fund carefully before
investing. For a prospectus which contains this and other information
