All reverse splits will apply to shareholders of record as of the close of the markets on Dec. 2, 2016. The funds will trade at the post-split prices on Dec. 5, 2016. The ticker symbols and CUSIP numbers for the funds will not change.

The reverse splits will increase the price per share of each fund with a proportionate decrease in the number of shares outstanding. For example, for the 1-for-5 reverse split, every five pre-split shares held by a shareholder will result in the receipt of one post-split share, which will be priced at five times the net NAV of a pre-split share.
