The Fund is a non-diversified, closed-end management investment company that is managed by Babson Capital Management LLC. The Fund invests primarily in short-duration, global high yield bonds with the objective of seeking as high a level of current income as Babson Capital determines is consistent with capital preservation, with a secondary objective of capital appreciation.  The Fund expects to maintain a weighted average portfolio duration, including the effects of leverage, of three years or less. Please refer to www.babsoncapital.com/bgh for further information about the Fund.

Cautionary Notice: Certain statements contained in this press release may be "forward looking" statements.  Investors are cautioned not to place undue reliance on forward-looking statements, which speak only as of the date in which they are made and which reflect management's current estimates, projections, expectations or beliefs, and which are subject to risks and uncertainties that may cause actual results to differ materially.  These statements are subject to change at any time based upon economic, market or other conditions and may not be relied upon as investment advice or an indication of the fund's trading intent.  References to specific securities are not recommendations of such securities, and may not be representative of the fund's current or future investments.  We undertake no obligation to publicly update forward looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events, or otherwise. 

Because the Fund is newly organized, its shares have a limited history of public trading. Investors should read the Fund's prospectus and consider carefully the risks, investment objectives, charges and expenses associated with an investment in the Fund's common shares. For a copy of the prospectus, please contact your securities representative.

An investment in the Fund is not appropriate for all investors and is not intended to be a complete investment program. The Fund is designed as a long-term investment and not as a trading vehicle. Investing in the Fund involves risks, including the risk that you may receive little or no return on your investment or that you may lose part or even all of your investment. The Fund invests in high yield bonds, commonly referred to as "junk bonds," including distressed securities, which are subject to greater credit risk (the risk that an issuer won't make timely payments of principal and interest) and market risk (the risk that the value of the Fund's investments may fall, sometimes rapidly or unpredictably, as a result of increasing interest rates or otherwise); loans and derivative securities, which may carry market, credit and liquidity risk (the risk that the Fund's investments may be difficult to sell at an advantageous time or price); foreign securities, which are subject to additional risks including political and economic risks. The Fund employs leveraging techniques, which may magnify losses, increase portfolio expenses, cause the Fund's NAV and distributions to be more volatile, and are subject to non-diversification risk, which may subject the Fund to greater losses in response to a single economic, political or regulatory development than funds that are more diversified. The Fund may trade at a discount to its net asset value and is subject to anti-takeover provisions that may delay, defer or prevent a transaction or a change in control that might otherwise be in the best interests of Fund shareholders. Portfolios investing in derivatives could lose more than the principal amount invested in those instruments. Before investing you should consider carefully the Fund's investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses. For more complete information about the Fund, please see the prospectus.
