According to a release, the Fund is offering to purchase up to 5 percent of its issued and outstanding shares of common stock at a price equal to 98 percent of the Fund's net asset value ("NAV") per share as determined by the Fund on the next business day after the date on which the offer expires.

The Fund's offer is being made in accordance with its Discount Management Program (the "Program"). The Program provides for up to four, consecutive, semi-annual tender offers, each of which will be conducted by the Fund if its shares trade at an average discount to NAV of more than 10 percent during the applicable twelve-week measurement period, as the Fund's shares did in the most recent measurement period, which commenced on September 16, 2013 and ended on December 6, 2013.
