On an annualized basis, the Trust's initial distribution is equivalent to an annual distribution rate of approximately 6% of the Trust's initial public offering price. The amount of monthly distributions may vary depending on a number of factors. As portfolio and market conditions change, the rate of future distributions may change.

Trust distributions may be affected by numerous factors, including changes in Trust performance, the cost of financing, portfolio holdings, realized and projected returns, and other factors. There can be no assurance that an unanticipated change in market conditions or other unforeseen factors will not result in a change in the Trust's distributions at a future time.
A portion of the distributions may be comprised of amounts from sources other than net investment income. If that is the case, you will be notified in writing. Further information will be available prior to the payment date at funds.eatonvance.com. The final determination of tax characteristics of the Trust's distributions will occur after the end of the year, at which time it will be reported to the shareholders.
Shares of closed-end funds often trade at a discount from their net asset value. The market price of Trust shares may vary from net asset value based on factors affecting the supply and demand for shares, such as Trust distribution rates relative to similar investments, investors' expectations for future distribution changes, the clarity of the Trust's investment strategy and future return expectations, and investors' confidence in the underlying markets in which the Trust invests. Trust shares are subject to investment risk, including possible loss of principal invested. The Trust is not a complete investment program and you may lose money investing in the Trust. An investment in the Trust may not be appropriate for all investors. Before investing, prospective investors should consider carefully the Trust's investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses.
