The declaration, record and payment dates of the regular January distributions have been accelerated for each Fund and a special distribution is being paid to shareholders of Eaton Vance Floating-Rate Income Trust to allow each Fund to meet its 2023 distribution requirements for federal excise tax purposes. Each Fund expects to declare its next regular monthly distribution at the beginning of February 2024 for payment in February 2024.

The Distribution Rate at Market Price is based on the Fund’s most recent regular distribution per share (annualized) divided by the Fund’s market price at the end of the period. Fund distributions may be affected by numerous factors, including changes in Fund performance, the cost of financing for Funds that employ leverage, portfolio holdings, realized and projected returns, and other factors. There can be no assurance that an unanticipated change in market conditions or other unforeseen factors will not result in a change in a Fund’s distributions at a future time.

A portion of the distributions may be comprised of amounts from sources other than net investment income. If that is the case, you will be notified in writing. Further information will be available prior to the payment date at funds.eatonvance.com. The final determination of tax characteristics of each Fund’s distributions will occur after the end of the year, at which time it will be reported to the shareholders.

Shares of closed-end funds often trade at a discount from their net asset value. The market price of Fund shares may vary from net asset value based on factors affecting the supply and demand for shares, such as Fund distribution rates relative to similar investments, investors’ expectations for future distribution changes, the clarity of the Fund’s investment strategy and future return expectations, and investors’ confidence in the underlying markets in which the Fund invests. Fund shares are subject to investment risk, including possible loss of principal invested. No Fund is a complete investment program and you may lose money investing in a Fund. An investment in a Fund may not be appropriate for all investors. Before investing, prospective investors should consider carefully the Fund’s investment objective, risks, charges and expenses.
