*Standard & Poor's fund ratings are based on analysis of credit quality, market price exposure and management. According to Standard & Poor's rating criteria, the AAAm rating signifies excellent safety of invested principal and a superior capacity to maintain a $1.00 per share net asset value. However, it should be understood that the rating is not a "market" rating nor a recommendation to buy, hold or sell the securities.

PLGIT/PLUS-Class shares merged into PLGIT/Reserve-Class shares. The PLGIT/ARM Portfolio merged into the PLGIT Portfolio, and PLGIT/ARM shareholders received PLGIT/Reserve-Class shares.
