Notes to Editors:
Bond funds, including closed-end funds, are subject generally to interest rate, credit, liquidity and market risks, to varying degrees. Generally, all other factors being equal, bond prices are inversely related to interest-rate changes, and rate increases can produce price declines.
High-yield bonds involve increased credit and liquidity risk compared with higher-quality bond funds. Below-investment grade bonds are considered speculative as to the continuing ability of an issuer to make interest payments and repay principal.
The Fund's use of portfolio and/or structural leverage involves special risk considerations, including (but not limited to) the potential for greater volatility in the net asset value of the Fund's common shares. While leverage can enhance return potential, it can also magnify principal losses.
In addition, this Fund is subject to municipal bond risk and the risk of concentration in infrastructure sectors and projects.
It is expected that the Fund's distributions will generally be treated as tax-exempt income for purposes of regular U.S. Federal income tax. A portion of the Fund's distributions may be (i) subject to U.S. Federal income tax and such distributions will generally be subject to state and local taxes, and (ii) includable in taxable income for purposes of the Federal alternative minimum tax.
Past performance is no guarantee of future results.
Shares of closed-end investment companies, such as the Fund, typically trade on a national stock exchange, and these shares frequently trade at a discount to their net asset value, which may increase investors' risk of loss.
