When not available in either database, PIMCO will assign a yield to maturity for that security from a PIMCO matrix based on prior data.

The quarterly distribution yields are calculated by annualizing actual dividends distributed for the quarterly period ended on the most recent quarterly distribution date and dividing by the net asset value for the same date. The yield does not include long- or short-term capital gains distributions.
