(NYSE: HAV), Helios High Income Fund, Inc. (NYSE: HIH), Helios Multi-Sector High Income Fund, Inc. (NYSE: HMH), and Helios Strategic Income Fund, Inc.

With respect to each of HAV, HIH, HMH and HSA, the distribution announced today represents the respective Fund's final distribution, inclusive of undistributed net investment income earned through the effective date of the Reorganizations.

Investors in HAV, HIH, HMH and HSA should consider this distribution to be in lieu of the distribution that would ordinarily be declared on August 1, 2014, and such Funds will pay no further distributions to their shareholders prior to the Reorganizations.

With respect to HHY, shareholders should consider the distribution announced today to be inclusive of the distribution ordinarily declared on August 1, 2014. No other distribution for HHY will be paid during the month of August 2014. The next distribution declaration date of the combined fund (HHY) following the Reorganizations is expected to be September 5, 2014.

It is currently expected that the Reorganizations will be completed prior to the opening of the New York Stock Exchange on August 11, 2014, subject to all regulatory requirements and customary closing conditions being satisfied. The Reorganizations, if completed, would occur based on the relative net asset values of (i) HAV and HHY, (ii) HIH and HHY, (iii) HMH and HHY, and (iv) HSA and HHY, respectively.
