The fund's distributions under the plan, including the current distribution, may include net investment income, net realized long-term capital gains, net realized short-term capital gains and return of capital.  If a distribution does not consist solely of net investment income, a notice with the estimated components of the distribution will be (i) provided to shareholders at the time of payment; and (ii) posted to the fund's website at FederatedInvestors.com. Investors should use the Form 1099-DIV sent after calendar year end, and not the notice, to prepare tax returns.  Investors should not draw any conclusions about the fund's investment performance from the amount of this distribution or from the terms of the fund's plan.  The fund employs an integrated U.S. Treasury-based strategy with option writing and a duration management overlay in order to seek to provide investors with the potential for current income and total return.  

Senior Portfolio Manager Donald Ellenberger and Dix Hills Managing Partner Joseph Baggett will discuss the fund, including performance and key management points, at 2 p.m. Eastern on Tuesday, Oct. 18, 2011.  Investors are invited to listen by calling 1-866-600-0804 and entering conference ID: 14819599.  A replay will be available after 4 p.m. and through Nov. 18, 2011 by calling 1-855-859-2056.
