(b) Since the Funds' net earning rates fluctuate from month to month, there will be periods when the Funds may over-earn or under-earn their monthly dividend rates. This fluctuation will have the effect of adding to or subtracting from the Funds' undistributed net investment income balances. Funds management analyzes the current and projected net earning rates prior to recommending dividend amounts to the Funds' Board of Trustees for declaration. There can be no assurance that the monthly dividend rates will remain at their current levels or that the undistributed net investment income balances will be sufficient to cover any shortfall in earnings to meet the current dividend rates.

Allianz Global Investors Fund Management LLC ("AGIFM"), an indirect, wholly-owned subsidiary of Allianz Asset Management of America L.P. serves as the Funds' investment manager and is a member of Munich-based Allianz Group. Pacific Investment Management Company LLC, an AGIFM affiliate, serves as the Funds' sub-adviser.
