This excerpt taken from the VPV DEF 14A filed May 5, 2009.
Management of each Fund does not intend to present and does not have reason to believe that others will present any other items of business at the Meeting. However, if other matters are properly presented to the Meeting for a vote, the proxies will be voted upon such matters in accordance with the judgment of the persons acting under the proxies.
A list of shareholders of each Fund entitled to be present and vote at the Meeting will be available at the offices of the respective Fund, 1 Parkview Plaza, Oakbrook Terrace, Illinois 60181-5555, for inspection by any shareholder during regular business hours for ten days prior to the date of the Meeting.
Failure of a quorum to be present at the Meeting for any Fund may necessitate adjournment and may subject such Fund to additional expense.
If you cannot be present in person, you are requested to fill in, sign and return the enclosed proxy card, for which no postage is required if mailed in the United States, or record your voting instructions by telephone or via the internet promptly.
