The Fund is subject to investment risk.Bond investments are subject to interest-rate and credit risks.
When interest rates rise, bond prices generally fall. Credit risk refers to the ability of an issuer to make
timely payments of principal and interest. Investing in derivatives entails special risks relating to
liquidity, leverage and credit that may reduce returns and/or increased volatility. Leverage results in
additional risks and can magnify the effect of any losses. Although the Fund seeks income that is
federally tax-free, a portion of the Fund’s distributions may be subject to federal, state and local taxes,
including the alternative minimum tax.
Shares of closed-end funds, unlike open-end funds, typically are not continuously offered. There is a one
time public offering and, once issued, shares of closed-end funds are sold in the open market through a
stock exchange. Shares of closed-end funds frequently trade at a discount to net asset value. The price of
the Fund’s shares is determined by a number of factors, several of which are beyond the control of the
Fund. Therefore, the Fund cannot predict whether its shares will trade at, below, or above net asset value.
