This distribution represents a per annum distribution rate of approximately 10.36% based on the market price of the fund’s shares of $14.59 as of the close of the New York Stock Exchange on Tuesday, May 22, 2018 and approximately 10.44% based on the fund’s net asset value (NAV) of $14.48 as of the same date.

The fund’s monthly distribution rate has been reduced by $0.03 per share. The decrease in the fund’s distribution rate is the result of several factors, including current market conditions, the impact of significant market volatility during the first quarter of 2018 on the fund’s option strategy and management’s desire to provide a distribution rate that it considers sustainable for the longer-term.

Under the terms of the fund’s managed distribution plan, the fund will seek to maintain a consistent distribution level that may be paid in part or in full from net investment income and realized capital gains, or a combination thereof. Shareholders should note, however, that if the fund’s aggregate net investment income and net realized capital gains are less than the amount of the distribution level, the difference will be distributed from the fund’s assets and will constitute a return of the shareholder’s capital. You should not draw any conclusions about the fund’s investment performance from the amount of this distribution or from the terms of the fund’s managed distribution plan.

The fund estimates that it has distributed more than its income and capital gains; therefore, a portion of your distribution may be a return of capital. A return of capital may occur, for example, when some or all of the money that you invested in the fund is paid back to you. A return of capital distribution does not necessarily reflect the fund’s investment performance and should not be confused with ‘yield’ or ‘income’.

The fund provided this estimate of the sources of the distributions:
