Under such conditions, the Board determined that continued repurchases under the Discount Management Program was not in the best interests of the Fund or its stockholders. The Board will continue to monitor the situation and look to reinstate repurchases under the Program as soon as it is in the best interests of the Fund and its stockholders to do so.
