As of January 31, 2014, the Fund's net assets were $218.2 million and the NAV per share was $30.39. On January 31, 2014, the closing share price of the Fund was $28.48, which was trading at a 6.3% discount to the NAV.

The Fund increased its quarterly dividend to $0.467 per share for the quarter ending February 28, 2014, which represents a 2.6% year-over-year increase over the $0.455 paid in February 2013.

It is anticipated that this dividend will be comprised of both return of capital and ordinary income for tax purposes. The final tax status of the dividend may differ substantially from this preliminary information, and the final determination of such amount will be made in early 2015 when the Fund can determine its earnings and profits for the 2014 fiscal year.
