The meeting will now take place on February 25, 2021 at 4:00 p.m. (Eastern). Additionally, in light of public health concerns regarding the COVID-19 pandemic, the rescheduled meeting will be held in a virtual meeting format only.

As noted in the proxy materials previously distributed, the Board of Trustees of the fund had fixed the close of business on September 10, 2020 as the record date for the determination of shareholders entitled to notice of, and to vote at, the meeting or any postponement or adjournment thereof. To attend the rescheduled meeting virtually, shareholders must email the fund's transfer agent, AST Financial, at attendameeting@astfinancial.com and provide their full name, address and control number located on the proxy card previously received. AST Financial will respond with meeting credentials and voting instructions.

If you held fund shares through an intermediary (such as a broker-dealer) as of September 10, 2020, in order to participate in and vote at the meeting, you must first obtain a legal proxy from your intermediary reflecting the fund's name, the number of shares held, and your name and email address. You may forward an email from your intermediary containing the legal proxy or an image of the legal proxy to AST at attendameeting@astfinancial.com and put "Legal Proxy" in the subject line. Requests for registration must be received by AST no later than 3:00 p.m. (Eastern) on February 24, 2021. AST will email you confirmation of your registration, a control number, credentials for participation in the meeting, and instructions for voting during the meeting.

Shareholders are not required to attend the meeting to vote on the proposals. Whether or not you plan to attend the meeting, the fund urges you to authorize a proxy to vote your shares in advance of the meeting by one of the methods described in the proxy materials. In connection with the meeting, the fund has filed a definitive proxy statement with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Shareholders are advised to read the fund's proxy statement because it contains important information.

The fund's daily closing market prices and net asset values per share, as well as other information, including updated portfolio statistics and performance, are available on the fund's web page or by calling Shareholder Services at (800) 254-5197.
