Each Fund's repurchase program is implemented on a discretionary basis under the direction of EVM. There can be no assurance that shares will be repurchased for a Fund in the same or similar amount going forward, or that the market price of Fund shares will continue to increase.

1 Based on shares outstanding at repurchase program inception.

2 A Fund's Beginning Market Price and Beginning NAV Discount are as of the close of the market on the business day preceding its first share repurchase. To date, ETB has not repurchased shares. On September 18, 2013, its NAV Discount was -4.60%.

3 % Return at Market Price reflects the change in the market price of Fund shares plus any distributions paid during the period. Past performance is no guarantee of future results.

4 This is the accretion each Fund realized to its NAV from repurchasing its shares at a discount.
