Past performance is not indicative of future performance. Our distributions may exceed our profits and therefore parts of the distributions we make may be a return of the money you originally invested and represent a return of capital to you for tax purposes. Such a return of capital is not immediately taxable, but reduces your tax base on our shares, which may result in higher taxes for you even if your shares are sold at a lower price than your original investment.
