This announcement is not an offer to purchase or a solicitation of an offer to purchase any securities of the Fund. The Tender Offer described in this announcement has not yet commenced. The Tender Offer will be made only by an Offer to Purchase and the related Letter of Transmittal. As soon as the Tender Offer commences, the Fund will file a tender offer statement with the SEC. STOCKHOLDERS OF THE FUND SHOULD READ THESE DOCUMENTS BECAUSE THEY WILL CONTAIN IMPORTANT INFORMATION. Documents filed with the SEC are available to investors; free of charge, at the SEC's website (http://www.sec.gov).

Closed-end funds have a one-time initial public offering and then are subsequently traded on the secondary market through one of the stock exchanges. The investment return and principal value will fluctuate so that an investor's shares may be worth more or less than the original cost. Shares of closed-end funds may trade above (a premium) or below (a discount) NAV of the fund's portfolio. There is no assurance that a fund will achieve its investment objective. Past performance does not guarantee future results.

International investing entails special risk considerations, including currency fluctuations, lower liquidity, economic and political risks, and differences in accounting methods; these risks are generally heightened for emerging market investments.
