Unitholders of record at close of business on December 30, 2019 , will receive the 2019 annual reinvested distributions. The final year-end distribution amounts, as well as the ongoing cash distribution amounts, are expected to be announced on December 18, 2019 . The actual taxable amounts, including the tax characteristics, will be reported in 2020.

Please note that these are estimated annual reinvested distributions only and have been calculated based upon forward-looking information as of October 31, 2019 2. If the forward-looking information changes, the estimated annual reinvested distributions may also change.

These estimates are for the annual reinvested distributions only and do not include estimates of ongoing cash distribution amounts.
