(each a Fund and together, the Funds)

After a rigorous and deliberative review, and consistent with the interests of the Funds’ long-term shareholders, the Board of Trustees of each Fund has adopted Amended and Restated By-Laws (By-Laws) for the Funds.

Among other changes, the By-Laws include new deadlines for advance notice of shareholder proposals or nominations to be brought before a meeting of shareholders. As a result, the advance notice deadlines for certain Funds’ 2021 annual meetings of shareholders will differ from the deadlines previously set forth in such Funds’ proxy statements for the 2020 annual meetings of shareholders. For such Funds, notice of any proposal, other than a proposal submitted pursuant to Rule 14a-8 under the Exchange Act, in connection with such Fund’s 2021 annual meeting of shareholders must be received by the Fund at the Fund’s principal executive offices not earlier than, nor later than, the corresponding dates set forth in the table included in this press release. The deadline for the receipt of advance notice of nominations and proposals made outside of Rule 14a-8 is also the date after which shareholder nominations and proposals made outside of Rule 14a-8 would not be considered "timely" within the meaning of Rule 14a-4(c) under the Exchange Act. If a proposal is not "timely" within the meaning of Rule 14a-4(c), then the persons named as proxies in the proxies solicited by the Board of Trustees for the 2021 annual meeting of shareholders may exercise discretionary voting power with respect to any such proposal. With respect to any Fund not listed in the table below, the deadlines for advance notice of shareholder proposals or nominations to be brought before such Fund’s 2021 annual meeting of shareholders will be set forth in the proxy statement for the Fund’s 2020 annual meeting of shareholders.

The By-Laws require compliance with certain amended procedural and informational requirements in connection with any such advance notice of shareholder proposals or nominations, including certain information about the proponent and the proposal, or in the case of a nomination, the nominee. Any shareholder considering making a nomination or other proposal should carefully review and comply with those provisions of the By-Laws.

The By-Laws also include provisions (Control Share By-Law) pursuant to which, in summary, a shareholder who obtains beneficial ownership of common shares of a Fund in a "Control Share Acquisition" may exercise voting rights with respect to such shares only to the extent the authorization of such voting rights is approved by other shareholders of the Fund. The Control Share By-Law is primarily intended to protect the interests of the Fund and its long-term shareholders by limiting the risk that the Fund will become subject to undue influence by opportunistic traders pursuing short-term agendas adverse to the best interests of the Fund and its long term shareholders. The Control Share By-Law does not eliminate voting rights for common shares acquired in Control Share Acquisitions, but rather, entrusts the Fund's other "non-interested" shareholders with determining whether to approve the authorization of the voting rights of the person acquiring such shares.

Subject to various conditions and exceptions, the Control Share By-Law defines a "Control Share Acquisition" to include an acquisition of common shares that, but for the Control Share By-Law, would give the beneficial owner, upon the acquisition of such shares, the ability to exercise voting power in the election of Trustees of the Fund in any of the following ranges:

(i) one-tenth or more, but less than one-fifth of all voting power;

(ii) one-fifth or more, but less than one-third of all voting power;

(iii) one-third or more, but less than a majority of all voting power; or

(iv) a majority or more of all voting power.

The Control Share By-Law excludes certain acquisitions of common shares from the definition of Control Share Acquisition, including acquisitions of common shares that occurred prior to October 5, 2020, though such shares are included in assessing whether any subsequent share acquisition exceeds one of the enumerated thresholds.

Subject to certain conditions and procedural requirements set forth in the Control Share By-Law, including the delivery of a "Control Share Acquisition Statement" to the Fund's Secretary setting forth certain required information, a shareholder who obtains or proposes to obtain beneficial ownership of common shares in a Control Share Acquisition generally may demand a special meeting of shareholders for the purpose of considering whether the voting rights of such acquiring person with respect such shares shall be authorized.

The foregoing discussion is only a summary of certain aspects of the By-Laws, and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the By-Laws. Investors should refer to the By-Laws for more information. A copy of the By-Laws can be found in the Current Report on Form 8-K filed today by the Funds with the Securities and Exchange Commission and available at www.sec.gov and may be obtained by writing to the Secretary of the Fund at 333 West Wacker Drive, Chicago, Illinois 60606.
