Closed-end funds, unlike open-end funds, are not continuously offered.  There is a one-time public offering and once issued, shares of closed-end funds are sold in the open market through a share exchange.  Shares of closed-end funds frequently trade at a discount to the net asset value.  The price of a fund’s shares is determined by a number of factors, several of which are beyond the control of the fund.  Therefore, a fund cannot predict whether its shares will trade at, below or above net asset value.
This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation to buy, nor shall there be any sale of the Fund’s shares in any state or jurisdiction in which such offer or solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to registration or qualification under the laws of such state or jurisdiction.
