Distribution rates are calculated by annualizing the distribution declared during the period and then dividing the resulting annualized distribution by the month-end NAV (in the case of NAV) or the month-end closing price (in the case of Market Price). The distribution rate is based on an estimation of investment income and may or may not include a return of capital. The distribution rate is based solely on actual distributions, which are made at the discretion of the Board.
This press release is not for tax reporting purposes but is being provided to announce the amount of the Trust’s distributions that have been declared by the Board. In early 2014, after definitive information is available, the Trust will send shareholders a Form 1099-DIV specifying how the distributions paid by the Trust during the calendar year should be characterized for purposes of reporting the distributions on a shareholder’s tax return (e.g., ordinary income, short-term capital gain, long-term capital gain or return of capital).
