The difference between total assets and net assets, if any, is due primarily to
the Fund's use of borrowings and other liabilities; net assets do not include
borrowings. The Fund may employ leverage in the form of loans, preferred
stock and/or other instruments. When the Fund engages in transactions that
have a leveraging effect on the Fund's portfolio, the value of the Fund will be
more volatile and all other risks will tend to be compounded.

***Percentages are based on total assets.

On January 22, 2013 CTR announced it increased the distribution to be paid
