Year-End Distribution Estimates - 2013

Loomis Sayles is providing estimates of ordinary income and capital gain distributions to be paid in December for the convenience of shareholders and their financial advisors to assist with year-end tax and investment planning; however, such estimates are not intended to be a precise indicator of year-end distribution amounts. The calculations needed to arrive at a fund’s required distribution amount are comprehensive, and involve application of complex sections of the Internal Revenue Code; additionally, certain tax adjustments are based on market value at a point in time and, therefore, cannot be estimated. As a result, estimates do not include all tax adjustments. Actual distributions, including the funds paying and not paying, may differ from those presented.

Final distribution rates will be made available after distributions have been paid in December.
