With certain limited exceptions, the Funds are generally available only to shareholders residing in the United States. Unless you meet certain residency eligibility requirements, once you close your account, you may not make additional investments in the Funds.
Redemptions, like purchases, may generally be effected only through financial intermediaries and retirement platforms. Please contact your financial intermediary or refer to the appropriate plan documents for details. Your financial intermediary may charge a processing or service fee in connection with the redemption of Shares.
Shares of each Fund may be redeemed on any business day on which the Fund's NAV is calculated. Redemptions are duly processed at the NAV next calculated after your redemption order is received in good order by a Fund or its agents. Redemption proceeds, less any applicable CDSC for Class A Shares or Class C Shares, will normally be sent the business day following receipt of the redemption order.
Each Fund reserves the right to postpone payment of redemption proceeds for up to seven calendar days. Additionally, the right to require the Funds to redeem their shares may be suspended, or the date of payment may be postponed beyond seven calendar days, whenever: (i) trading on the NYSE is restricted, as determined by the SEC, or the NYSE is closed (except for holidays and weekends); (ii) the SEC permits such suspension and so orders; or (iii) an emergency exists as determined by the SEC so that disposal of securities or determination of NAV is not reasonably practicable.
Each Fund reserves the right to annually request that intermediaries close Fund accounts that are valued at less than $100, other than as a result solely of depreciation in share value. Certain accounts held through intermediaries may not be subject to closure due to the policies of the intermediaries. You may receive written notice from your intermediary to increase your account balance to the required minimum to avoid having your account closed provided you meet certain residency eligibility requirements. Please note that you may incur a tax liability as a result of a redemption.
