May Result in the Closure and Liquidation of Your Fund

Dear iShares Shareholder,

The iShares Funds recently contacted you regarding a Special Meeting of Shareholders (the “Meeting”) to approve a new investment advisory agreement for all iShares Funds. Due to a lack of sufficient shareholder votes, the Meeting has been adjourned for a fourth time to December 22, 2009 at 5:00 PM (PST) with regard to your iShares Fund(s). We have not received your vote and there is less than one week until the Meeting.

After repeated attempts, we still have not yet received your vote. The existing investment advisory agreement for your iShares Fund terminated on December 1, 2009 and your iShares Fund is now being managed pursuant to an interim advisory agreement. Shareholder action is now required to approve a new investment advisory agreement for your iShares Fund. Please act now to ensure that your iShares Fund continues to operate without interruption.

The Board of Directors/Trustees of the iShares Funds has unanimously recommended that shareholders vote in favor of the new investment advisory agreement proposal. If we do not have a sufficient number of votes to hold the Meeting, the Board of Directors/Trustees of the iShares Funds will take such action it deems necessary and in the best interests of those iShares Funds and their shareholders, including closing and liquidating your iShares Fund. We urge you to vote today without further delay.

To vote your shares, please call 1-866-450-8471. Representatives are available Monday through Friday 9:30 AM to 12:00 Midnight (EST), Saturday from 10:00 AM to 9:00 PM (EST), and Sunday from 12:00 Noon to 6:00 PM (EST). If you are an institutional shareholder or a shareholder located outside the U.S. and need assistance in voting your shares, please call +1 646-378-4860 (international collect calls are accepted). You may also vote by internet, as further detailed in this email.
