    John Hancock Closed-End Funds Announce Renewal Of Share Repurchase Plans

    The Board of Trustees approved the renewal of the share repurchase plans as part of its ongoing evaluation of options to enhance shareholder value and potentially decrease the discount between the market price and the net asset value per share ("NAV") of the Funds' common shares.  Under the share repurchase plans, each Fund may purchase, in the open market, between January 1, 2018 and December 31, 2018, up to an additional 10% of its outstanding common shares (based on common shares outstanding as of December 31, 2017). The share repurchase plans allow the repurchase of common shares in the open market at a discount to NAV.  The plans could allow the Funds to realize incremental accretion to their NAV to the benefit of existing shareholders.
