Amended and Restated By-Laws

The fund's board of trustees (the "board"), after a deliberative review and consistent with the interests of the fund and fund shareholders, amended and restated the fund's by-laws (as amended, the "by-laws"). Among other things, the amendments reflected in the by-laws provide that certain litigation relating to the internal governance of the fund (excluding claims arising under federal securities laws) must be brought in federal or state courts in Delaware. The by-laws also amend the advance notice provisions to enhance the board's ability to respond to shareholder proposals, including by requiring that the proponent update certain information provided with the initial notice. In addition, the by-laws have been amended to provide that once large shareholders (individually or in a group) exceed certain threshold ownership levels (starting at 10% of fund shares) they may only vote shares that exceed the applicable threshold if the remaining fund shareholders so approve. Certain groups of investors are exempted from the provisions and the board also retains the authority to waive the application of the provisions in its discretion. The by-laws increase the quorum for a shareholder vote on allowing large shareholders to vote shares and on the election of trustees from a third to a majority of shares outstanding and entitled to vote.

This high-level summary of amendments is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full by-laws, which will be filed with the SEC. Shareholders should refer to the by-laws for more information.
