Share and $0.2300 per Capital Share payable on September 26, 2008 to holders
of record at the close of business on September 17, 2008. The reduction from
the prior quarter's dividend paid on the Capital Shares is attributable to BCE

dividends in an amount equal to the revenue received by the Company on the
underlying portfolio securities minus the dividends payable on the Preferred
Shares and all administrative and operating expenses.
