On August 1, 2018, Invesco Advisers, Inc. ("Invesco") announced that the Board of Trustees of the Trust approved a managed distribution plan (the "Plan") for the Trust, whereby the Trust will pay common shareholders a stable monthly distribution.  Under the Plan, the Trust increased its dividend to a stated fixed monthly amount based on a distribution rate of 8.5% of the closing market price per share as of August 1, 2018, which is the date the Plan became effective. The Trust's distributions may include net investment income, long-term capital gains, short-term capital gains and/or return of capital. In order to make multiple long-term capital gains distributions over the course of the year, the Trust will rely on an exemptive order granted by the US Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC"). 

The following table sets forth the estimated amounts of the current distribution and the cumulative distributions paid this fiscal year to date from the sources indicated.  You should not draw any conclusions about the Trust's investment performance from the amount of this distribution or from the terms of the Plan. All amounts are expressed per common share.  The Trust estimates that it has distributed more than its income and net realized capital gains; therefore, a portion of your distribution is estimated to be a return of capital.  A return of capital may occur, for example, when some or all of the money that you invested in the Trust is paid back to you.  A return of capital distribution does not necessarily reflect the Trust's investment performance and should not be confused with "yield" or "income." The amounts and sources of distributions reported in the 19(a) Notice are only estimates and are not being provided for tax reporting purposes.  The actual amounts and sources of the amounts for tax reporting purposes will depend on the Trust's investment experience during the remainder of its fiscal year and may be subject to changes based on tax regulations. The Trust will send you a Form 1099-DIV for the calendar year that will tell you how to report these distributions for federal income tax purposes. 

1 A portion of this distribution is estimated to be from a return of principal rather than net income.  The 19(a) Notice referenced below provides more information and can be found on the Invesco website at

* Form 1099-DIV for the calendar year will report distributions for federal income tax purposes.  The Trust's annual report to shareholders will include information regarding the tax character of Trust distributions for the fiscal year.  The final determination of the source and tax characteristics of all distributions in 2019 will be made after the end of the year.

The monthly distributions are based on estimates and terms of the Trust's Plan. Monthly distribution amounts may vary from these estimates based on a multitude of factors.  Changes in portfolio and market conditions may cause deviations from estimates.  These estimates should not be taken as indication of the Trust's earnings and performance.   The actual amounts and its sources may be subject to additional adjustments and will be reported after year end.

The Trust's Performance and Distribution Rate Information disclosed in the table below is based on the Trust's net asset value per share (NAV). Shareholders should take note of the relationship between the Fiscal Year-to-date Cumulative Total Return with the Trust's Cumulative Distribution Rate and the Average Annual Total Return with the Trust's Current Annualized Distribution Rate. The Trust's NAV is calculated as the total market value of all the securities and other assets held by the Trust minus the total liabilities, divided by the total number of shares outstanding. NAV performance may be indicative of the Trust's investment performance.  The value of a shareholder's investment in the Trust is determined by the Trust's market price, which is based on the supply and demand for the Trust's shares in the open market.

1 Fiscal year-to-date Cumulative Total Return assumes reinvestment of distributions.  This is calculated as the percentage change in the Trust's NAV over the fiscal year-to-date time period including distributions paid and reinvested.

2 Cumulative Distribution Rate for the Trust's current fiscal period (March 1, 2018 through February 28, 2019) is calculated as the dollar value of distributions in the fiscal year-to-date period as a percentage of the Trust's NAV as of February 28, 2019.

3 The Current Annualized Distribution Rate is the current fiscal period's distribution rate annualized as a percentage of the Trust's NAV as of February 28, 2019.

4 Average Annual Total Return represents the compound average of the annual NAV Total Returns of the Trust for the five year period ending February 28, 2019.  Annual NAV Total Return is the percentage change in the Trust's NAV over a year including distributions paid and reinvested.

In order to comply with the requirements of Section 19 of the Investment Company Act of 1940, the Trust will provide its shareholders of record on the record date with a 19(a) Notice disclosing the sources of its dividend payment when a distribution includes anything other than net investment income. 

The Plan may be amended or terminated at any time by the Trust's Board of Trustees and as a result, the amount of dividends paid by the Trust may vary from time to time.  Past amounts of dividends are no guarantee of future dividend payment amounts.

Investing involves risk and it is possible to lose money on any investment in the Trust.
