Any merger that is approved by shareholders before August 20, 2012 (an "Approved Merger") is expected to close on August 27, 2012. The monthly dividend of each Target Fund participating in an Approved Merger, expected to be declared on August 20, 2012, will be combined with the final distribution for such Target Fund. In addition, the dividend for each Target Fund participating in an Approved Merger expected to be declared on August 20, 2012 will be distributed to shareholders in cash, notwithstanding any shareholder's enrollment in the Target Fund's dividend reinvestment plan. Any shareholder currently enrolled in a Target Fund's dividend reinvestment plan will be automatically enrolled in the Acquiring Fund's dividend reinvestment plan upon the closing of the merger. Those mergers not yet approved by shareholders before August 20, 2012 will not close on August 27, 2012. For Target Funds in such mergers, the dividend expected to be declared on August 20, 2012 will be a regular monthly dividend and will be reinvested in additional shares for those shareholders who are enrolled in such Target Fund's dividend reinvestment plan.

The final determination of the source and tax characteristics of all distributions in 2012 will be made after the end of the year.
Investing involves risk and it is possible to lose money on any investment in the funds.
In order to comply with the requirements of Section 19 of the Investment Company Act of 1940, each Fund will provide its shareholders of record on the record date with a Section 19 Notice disclosing the sources of its dividend payment when a distribution includes anything other than net investment income. The Section 19 Notice is not provided for tax reporting purposes but for informational purposes only.
