Year-End Distribution Estimates - 2014

Loomis Sayles is providing estimates of 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. Capital gain distribution estimates have been prepared as of September 30, 2014. 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.

Ordinary income distribution estimates and updated capital gain distribution estimates will be made available in early December.

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