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.

When growing capacity and power in the data center, the architectural trade-offs between server scale-up vs. scale-out continue to be debated. Both approaches are valid: scale-out adds multiple, smaller servers running in a distributed computing model, while scale-up adds fewer, more powerful servers that are capable of running larger workloads. It’s worth noting that there are additional, unique advantages that scale-up architectures offer. One big advantage is large memory and compute capacity...
