In response to the failures experienced in the APS auction market, we sought and obtained no-action relief from the SEC to permit our closed-end funds to issue a new type of floating-rate preferred stock called Liquidity Protected Preferred shares (LPP shares). Like APS, LPP shares are designed to be used by closed-end funds as a source of financial leverage. LPP shares differ from APS in that they are supported by the unconditional purchase obligation of a designated liquidity provider and are designed for purchase by money market funds. While we have yet to offer LPP shares, we are hopeful that, as market conditions improve, LPP shares can provide a cost-effective alternative form of leverage that, together with other solutions, our funds can use to redeem the balance of their outstanding APS. As of October 31, 2010, our closed-end funds had $1.1 billion of outstanding APS compared to $5.0 billion of outstanding APS when the crisis broke, a reduction of 78 percent.
