In connection with the transition to the special rate period, the VRDP shares of each series have been mandatorily tendered by the holders and sold to an institutional investor. During the special rate period, the VRDP shares will not be remarketed by a remarketing agent, be subject to optional or mandatory tender events, or supported by a liquidity provider. During this period, VRDP dividends will be set monthly at a floating rate based on a predetermined formula.

This press release is neither an offer to sell nor a solicitation of an offer to buy any of these securities.
