The amounts and timing of cash dividend payments have generally been dictated by requirements of the Internal Revenue Code regarding the distribution of taxable net investment income (ordinary income) of regulated investment companies. Instead of distributing realized long-term capital gains to shareholders, we have ordinarily elected to retain such gains to fund future investments.
