Payment of the redemption price will be made on or after April 15, 2010, upon receipt by Wells Fargo of all required documentation. Because the redemptions are redemptions in full, the company will cause each of the series of redeemed shares to be delisted from trading and not listed on any other exchange. The company also intends to file with the Securities and Exchange Commission a notification of voluntarily withdrawal of listing and registration with respect to each of the redeemed series.
