The reorganizations are expected to price after the close of business on Friday, August 3, 2012, and close before the market open on Monday, August 6, 2012, with two funds acquiring the common and preferred assets of the other funds in their respective states. The goal of this reorganization is to create two, larger state-specific municipal bond funds, with lower operating expenses and increased share trading volume.

Regulations require that the acquired funds fully distribute any accumulated undistributed net investment income (UNII) as well as capital gains prior to effecting a reorganization. Consequently, five funds (NFM, NZR, NWI, NGB and NNB) are declaring distributions which will comply with these regulations, payable September 4, 2012, to fund shareholders of record August 3, 2012. In addition, the acquiring funds NMY and NPV are declaring distributions payable September 4, 2012, to shareholders of record on August 3, 2012. Each of the seven funds will also declare distributions to fund shareholders of record on August 3, 2012, payable October 1, 2012. Following the merger, NMY and NPV are expected to declare an additional distribution, payable October 1, 2012. The total dollar amount of the combined pre- and post-merger tax-exempt distributions received on September 4, 2012 as well as October 1, 2012 will each be equal to or greater than the shareholder’s prior monthly tax-exempt dividend. Some portion of these distributions is may be taxable* to shareholders under the Internal Revenue Code as Ordinary Income. The distribution information is detailed in the table above.

Acquired Fund Muni-Term Preferred (MTP) shares will be replaced one for one with newly issued shares of MTP from the acquiring Funds with substantially similar terms. Consequently, the MTP series being replaced are declaring final distributions for the period August 1, 2012 through August 5, 2012, which will be payable September 4, 2012. The new MTP series of the acquiring fund will declare a distribution on the effective date of the merger for the period of August 6, 2012 through August 31, 2012 which, when combined with the distributions listed below will be equal to the shareholders original pre-merger monthly distribution.
