BOSTON, June 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Eaton Vance Corp.

As a result, Eaton Vance has accepted for purchase $250 million aggregate principal amount of the Notes. 

Holders of Notes accepted for purchase will be eligible to receive the "Total Consideration" specified in the table below, which includes the Early Tender Premium (as defined in the Offer to Purchase).  In addition to the Total Consideration, Holders of Notes accepted for purchase will receive Accrued Interest (as defined in the Offer to Purchase) on those Notes from the last interest payment date with respect to those Notes to, but not including the Settlement Date (as defined in the Offer to Purchase).  The Settlement Date for Notes validly tendered prior to the Early Tender Date is expected to be June 28, 2013.
