BOSTON, Dec. 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Eaton Vance Management, the Boston-based investment adviser, announced the declaration of the monthly distribution on the common shares of one of its closed-end equity funds (the "Fund").  The Fund also announced the declaration of a long-term capital gain distribution on its common shares.  The long-term capital gain distribution helps to allow the Fund to meet its 2013 distribution requirements for federal tax purposes.  The record date for the distribution is December 24, 2013, and the payable date is December 31, 2013. The ex-date is December 20, 2013.  The distribution per share for the Fund is as follows:

At this time the Fund believes that a portion of the December distribution 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  The final determination of tax characteristics of the Fund's distributions will occur after the end of the year, at which time it will be reported to the shareholders.

It is also anticipated that the Fund will accelerate the declaration and payment of its January 2014 monthly distribution to avoid being subject to 2013 federal excise tax.  The Fund's January distribution is expected to be declared later this month and payable in early January to shareholders of record on December 31, 2013.  In February 2014, the Fund expects to resume its regular monthly distribution and payment schedule.

The Fund makes distributions in accordance with a managed distribution plan. With each distribution, the Fund issues a notice to shareholders and a press release containing information about the amount and sources of the distribution and other related information.  The Fund's distributions in any period may be more or less than the net return earned by the Fund on its investments, and therefore should not be used as a measure of performance or confused with "yield" or "income." Distributions in excess of Fund returns will cause its net asset value to erode. Investors should not draw any conclusions about the Fund's investment performance from the amount of its distribution or from the terms of its managed distribution plan. The Fund's distribution rate may be affected by numerous factors, including changes in realized and projected market returns, Fund performance and other factors. There can be no assurance that change in market conditions or other factors will not result in a change in the Fund's distribution rate. Additional information about the Fund, including performance and portfolio characteristic information, is available at

The Fund is managed by Eaton Vance Management, a subsidiary of Eaton Vance Corp. (NYSE: EV), based in Boston, one of the oldest investment management firms in the United States, with a history dating back to 1924.

Shares of closed-end funds often trade at a discount from their net asset value. The market price of Fund shares may vary from net asset value based on factors affecting the supply and demand for shares, such as Fund distribution rates relative to similar investments, investors' expectations for future distribution changes, the clarity of the Fund's investment strategy and future return expectations, and investors' confidence in the underlying markets in which the Fund invests. Fund shares are subject to investment risk, including possible loss of principal invested. No Fund is a complete investment program and you may lose money investing in a Fund. An investment in a Fund may not be appropriate for all investors. Before investing, prospective investors should consider carefully the Fund's investment objective, risks, charges and expenses.
