About the Trust

The Trust’s investment objective is to provide current income and additional total return. The Trust seeks to achieve its objective by investing, directly or indirectly, at least 80% of its managed assets in a broad range of income-producing securities. The Trust will invest in both equity and debt securities of companies located in the United States and around the globe. The Trust may invest in non-U.S. domiciled companies, including up to 20% of its managed assets at the time of investment in equity and debt securities of emerging market companies.

Limited Term

The Trust intends to terminate on or before August 2, 2033 (the “Termination Date”). The Termination Date may be extended once for up to one year; once for up to an additional six months; and the Trust may conduct an eligible tender offer. Upon termination or the eligible tender offer, each common shareholder would be eligible to be paid its pro rata portion of the Trust’s net assets. If due to tendered shares the Trust’s net assets would total less than $100 million, then the Trust will begin to terminate on or before the Termination Date. Following the tender offer, if the Trust’s net assets are greater than $100 million, the Trust may eliminate the term structure upon a vote of its Board of Trustees.

Investment in the Trust involves special risk considerations. The Trust is designed as a long-term investment and not as a trading vehicle. The Trust is not intended to be a complete investment program. The Trust’s performance and the value of its investments will vary in response to changes in interest rates, inflation and other market factors. Investors should consider the risks as well as other information in the Trust’s prospectus. Shares of closed-end funds trade in the secondary market and may frequently trade at a discount to their net asset value and initial offering price. The risk of loss due to this discount may be greater for initial investors expecting to sell their shares in a relatively short period after completion of the initial public offering.

This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation of an offer to buy, nor shall there be any offer, solicitation or sale of any securities in any state or jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to registration or qualification under the laws of such state or jurisdiction. A registration statement relating to these securities has been filed with and declared effective by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. An offer will be made only by means of the prospectus. An investor should carefully read the Trust’s prospectus, which includes a discussion of investment objectives, risk factors, fees and expenses, before investing. A copy of the final prospectus relating to the offering may be obtained from the Trust at 877-215-1330 or contact your financial advisor.

Certain statements in this press release constitute forward-looking statements, which involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors that may cause the actual results, levels of activity, performance or achievements of the Trust, or industry results, to be materially different from any future results, levels of activity, performance or achievements expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements. As a result, no assurance can be given as to future results, levels of activity, performance or achievements, and neither the Trust nor any other person assumes responsibility for the accuracy and completeness of such statements in the future.

Risk is inherent in all investing. There can be no assurance that the Trust will achieve its investment objective, and you could lose some or all of your investment.
