    (the “Fund”), a closed-end fund, paid a monthly distribution on its
    common stock of $0.0893 per share to shareholders of record at the close

    The following table sets forth the estimated amount of the sources of
    distribution for purposes of Section 19 of the Investment Company Act of

    investment income, (ii) net realized short-term capital gain, (iii) net
    realized long-term capital gain and (iv) return of capital or other
    capital source as a percentage of the total distribution amount. These
    percentages are disclosed for the current distribution as well as the
    fiscal year-to-date cumulative distribution amount per share for the
    Fund.

    The amounts and sources of distributions reported in this 19(a)
    Notice are only estimates and not for tax reporting purposes.
    The
    actual amounts and sources of the amounts for tax reporting purposes
    will depend upon the Fund’s investment experience during the remainder
    of its fiscal year and may be subject to changes based on tax
    regulations. The Fund will send you a Form 1099-DIV for the calendar
    year that will tell you how to report these distributions for federal
    income tax purposes. The Fund estimates that it has distributed more
    than its income and net realized capital gains; therefore, a portion of
    your distribution may be a return of capital. A return of capital may
    occur for example, when some or all of the money that you invested in
    the Fund is paid back to you. A return of capital distribution does not
    necessarily reflect the Fund’s investment performance and should not be
    confused with ‘yield’ or ‘income.’

    Presented below are return figures, based on the change in the Fund’s
    Net Asset Value per share (“NAV”), compared to the annualized
    distribution rate for this current distribution as a percentage of the
    NAV on the last business day of the month prior to distribution record
    date.

    ^ Based on the Fund’s NAV as of March 31, 2019.

    + Cumulative distribution rate is based on distributions paid
    to date for the period November 1, 2018 through April 30, 2019.

    * Cumulative fiscal year-to-date return is based on the change in NAV
    including distributions paid and assuming reinvestment of these
    distributions for the period November 1, 2018 through March 31, 2019.

    ** The 5 year average annual total return is based on change in NAV
    including distributions paid and assuming reinvestment of these
    distributions and is through the last business day of the month prior to
    the month of the current distribution record date.

    While the NAV performance may be indicative of the Fund’s investment
    performance, it does not measure the value of a shareholder’s investment
    in the Fund. The value of a shareholder’s investment in the Fund is
    determined by the Fund’s market price, which is based on the supply and
    demand for the Fund’s shares in the open market. Shareholders 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 Managed
    Distribution Plan.

    Furthermore, the Board of Trustees reviews the amount of any potential
    distribution and the income, capital gain or capital available. The
    Board of Trustees will continue to monitor the Fund’s distribution
    level, taking into consideration the Fund’s net asset value and the
    financial market environment. The Fund’s distribution policy is subject
    to modification by the Board of Trustees at any time. The distribution
    rate should not be considered the dividend yield or total return on an
    investment in the Fund.
