About Nuveen Closed-End Funds

Nuveen funds strive to provide dependable distributions over time. This fund has adopted a managed distribution program, with a goal to provide shareholders relatively consistent and predictable cash flow by systematically converting its expected long-term return potential into regular distributions. As a result, regular distributions throughout the year will likely include a portion of expected long-term and/or short-term gains (both realized and unrealized), along with net investment income. From time to time, the distributions may also include a non-taxable return of capital, which can include both unrealized gains and paid-in principal.

Each Nuveen fund seeks to establish a relatively stable distribution rate that reflects the Funds past results and projected future performance from its investment strategy over an extended period of time. However, you should not draw any conclusions about a funds past or future investment performance from its current distribution rate. Over a specific timeframe, the difference between actual returns and total distributions will be reflected in an increasing (returns exceed distributions) or a decreasing (distributions exceed returns) fund net asset value.

More details about the estimated composition of the distributions and NAV performance of Nuveen taxable funds are also available on www.nuveen.com/cef.
