How to Sell Shares
Methods of Selling
Through a broker/dealer organization
If you purchased your shares through a broker-dealer or other financial organization, your redemption order may be placed through the same organization. The organization is responsible for sending your redemption order to the Fund on a timely basis. Please keep in mind that your broker-dealer may charge additional fees for its services.
Send your written redemption request to the address below. Your request should contain the Fund's name, your account number and the dollar amount or the number of shares to be redeemed. Be sure to have all shareholders sign the letter. Additional documents are required for certain types of shareholders, such as corporations, partnerships, executors, trustees, administrators, or guardians (i.e., corporate resolutions, or trust documents indicating proper authorization). Please see the Statement of Additional Information for more information.

The Fund's transfer agent may require a signature guarantee for certain redemption requests such as redemption requests from IRA accounts, or redemption requests made payable to a person or an address not on record with the Fund. A signature guarantee assures that your signature is genuine and protects you from unauthorized account redemptions. You may obtain signature guarantees from most trust companies, commercial banks or other eligible guarantor institutions. A notary public cannot guarantee signatures.
If you are authorized to perform telephone transactions (either through your account application form or by subsequent arrangement in writing with the Fund) you may redeem shares in any amount, but not less than $100, by calling 1-800 FUNDS-85. A signature guarantee is required of all shareholders to change or add telephone redemption privileges. For security reasons, requests by telephone will be recorded.
To redeem shares by wire, call the Fund at 1-888-FUNDS-85 and specify the amount of money you wish to be wired. Your bank may charge a fee to receive wired funds. The transfer agent charges a $15 outgoing wire fee.
By writing a check
On your account application form, you may select the option to receive a checkbook so that you can redeem shares by writing checks against your Fund account. Checks may be made payable in the amount of $250 or more. Any checks drawn on a joint account will only require one signature. There is a $25 charge for stopping payment of a check upon your request, or if the transfer agent cannot honor a check due to insufficient funds or other valid reason. There will be a charge of $5 for issuing each checkbook.
Through a systematic withdrawal plan
If you own shares with a value of $10,000 or more, you may participate in the systematic withdrawal plan. The systematic withdrawal plan allows you to make automatic withdrawals from your Fund account at regular intervals. Money will be transferred from your Fund account to the checking or savings account you choose on your account application form. If you expect to purchase additional shares of the Fund, it may not be to your advantage to participate in the systematic withdrawal plan because of the possible adverse tax consequences of making contemporaneous purchases and redemptions.
When Redemption Proceeds Are Sent to You
Your shares will be redeemed at the NAV next determined after the Fund receives your redemption request in good order. Your redemption request cannot be processed on days the NYSE is closed.
When making a redemption request, make sure your request is in good order. "Good order" means your letter of instruction includes:
- the name of the Fund
- the dollar amount or the number of shares to be redeemed
- signatures of all registered shareholders exactly as the shares are registered
- the account number
All requests received in good order by the Fund before the close of the regular trading session of the NYSE (normally 4:00 p.m. Eastern Time) will usually be wired to the bank you indicate or mailed on the following day to the address of record. In all cases proceeds will be wired or a check mailed within seven calendar days after the Fund receives your redemption request.
If you purchase shares using a check and soon after request a redemption, the Fund will honor the redemption request, but will not mail or wire the proceeds until your purchase check has cleared (usually within 12 days).
If the amount you are redeeming is over the lesser of $250,000 or 1% of the Fund's net asset value, the Fund has the right to redeem your shares by giving you the amount that exceeds $250,000 or 1% of the Fund's net asset value in securities instead of cash.
Accounts with Low Balances
Due to the high cost of maintaining accounts with low balances, the Fund may mail you a notice if your account falls below $500 ($250 for IRA accounts) requesting that you bring the account back up to the minimum amount or close it out. (If you started your account with an AIP, you must continue your AIP until your minimum account balance has been attained.) If you do not respond to the request within 30 days, the Fund may close the account on your behalf and send you the proceeds.
