MFS Investment Management ("MFS"), announced that, at a meeting held today, the Board of Trustees of MFS Special Value Trust (the "fund"), (NYSE: MFV), a closed-end management investment company, approved a change to an investment policy of the fund. The fund currently has an investment policy that MFS normally will invest the fund's assets primarily in debt instruments. Effective on December 9, 2015, that policy will be changed to provide that MFS normally invests a majority of the fund's assets in debt instruments. The change allows the portfolio management team greater flexibility to increase the fund's exposure to equity securities. There are no other changes to the way the fund is being managed.
