(1) On or shortly prior to January 4, 2013, the Trust redeemed and repurchased all of its outstanding auction preferred shares.


* On December 18, 2012, the Fund issued 800 Series C-1 Variable Rate Term Preferred Shares (VRTP Shares), with a par value of $80 million.
The Fund used the net proceeds of the offering to redeem and repurchase all of its outstanding auction preferred shares which it completed on or prior to January 4, 2013. The VRTP Shares are a form of preferred shares with a mandatory redemption date of December 18, 2015, unless extended. The VRTP Shares were issued to a commercial paper conduit sponsored by a large financial institution (the Conduit). Dividends on the VRTP Shares are determined each day based on a spread to the Conduit's current cost of funding and are included in interest expense. The Fund's leverage amount did not change materially as a result of the VRTP Share issuance and the redemption of the auction preferred shares.
