Notes to Financial Statements

May 31, 2010 (unaudited)

1. Organization

Federated Enhanced Treasury Income Fund (the “Fund”) is registered under the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended (the “Act”) as a diversified, closed-end management investment company. The Fund's investment objectives are to provide current income, with total return as a secondary objective.

Prior to commencing operations on January 29, 2010, the Fund had no operations other than matters relating to its organization and registration and the sale and issuance of 5,236 common shares of beneficial interest (“common shares”) to Federated Investment Management Company (the “Adviser”). The Fund issued 8,900,000 common shares of beneficial interest in its initial public offering on January 29, 2010. These shares were issued at $20.00 per share before underwriting discount of $0.90 per share. Offering costs of $356,000 (representing $0.04 per share) were offset against proceeds of the offering and have been charged to paid-in capital. The Adviser has paid all offering costs (other than underwriting discount) and organizational expenses regarding the common share offering which exceeded $0.04 per share of the Fund. An additional 600,000 common shares were issued on March 15, 2010, at $20.00 per share before underwriting discount of $0.90 per share.

2. Significant Accounting Policies

The following is a summary of significant accounting policies consistently followed by the Fund in the preparation of its financial statements. These policies are in conformity with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP).

Investment Valuation

In calculating its net asset value (NAV), the Fund generally values investments as follows:

If the Fund cannot obtain a price or price evaluation from a pricing service for an investment, the Fund may attempt to value the investment based upon the mean of bid and asked quotations or fair value the investment based on price evaluations, from one or more dealers. If any price, quotation, price evaluation or other pricing source is not readily available when the NAV is calculated, the Fund uses the fair value of the investment determined in accordance with the procedures described below. There can be no assurance that the Fund could purchase or sell an investment at the price used to calculate the Fund's NAV.

Semi-Annual Shareholder Report

Fair Valuation and Significant Events Procedures

The Trustees have authorized the use of pricing services to provide evaluations of the current fair value of certain investments for purposes of calculating the NAV. Factors considered by pricing services in evaluating an investment include the yields or prices of investments of comparable quality, coupon, maturity, call rights and other potential prepayments, terms and type, reported transactions, indications as to values from dealers and general market conditions. Some pricing services provide a single price evaluation reflecting the bid-side of the market for an investment (a “bid” evaluation). Other pricing services offer both bid evaluations and price evaluations indicative of a price between the prices bid and asked for the investment (a “mid” evaluation). The Fund normally uses bid evaluations for U.S. Treasury and Agency securities, mortgage-backed securities and municipal securities. The Fund normally uses mid evaluations for other types of fixed-income securities and OTC derivative contracts. In the event that market quotations and price evaluations are not available for an investment, the fair value of the investment is determined in accordance with procedures adopted by the Trustees.

The Trustees also have adopted procedures requiring an investment to be priced at its fair value whenever the Adviser determines that a significant event affecting the value of the investment has occurred between the time as of which the price of the investment would otherwise be determined and the time as of which the NAV is computed. An event is considered significant if there is both an affirmative expectation that the investment's value will change in response to the event and a reasonable basis for quantifying the resulting change in value. Examples of significant events that may occur after the close of the principal market on which a security is traded, or after the time of a price evaluation provided by a pricing service or a dealer, include:

The Trustees have approved the use of a pricing service to determine the fair value of equity securities traded principally in foreign markets when the Adviser determines that there has been a significant trend in the U.S. equity markets or in index futures trading. For other significant events, the Fund may seek to obtain more current quotations or price evaluations from alternative pricing sources. If a reliable alternative pricing source is not available, the Fund will determine the fair value of the investment using another method approved by the Trustees.

Repurchase Agreements

It is the policy of the Fund to require the other party to a repurchase agreement to transfer to the Fund's custodian or sub-custodian eligible securities or cash with a market value (after transaction costs) at least equal to the repurchase price to be paid under the repurchase agreement. The eligible securities are transferred to accounts with the custodian or sub-custodian in which the Fund holds a “securities entitlement” and exercises “control” as those terms are defined in the Uniform Commercial Code. The Fund has established procedures for Semi-Annual Shareholder Report

monitoring the market value of the transferred securities and requiring the transfer of additional eligible securities if necessary to equal at least the repurchase price. These procedures also allow the other party to require securities to be transferred from the account to the extent that their market value exceeds the repurchase price or in exchange for other eligible securities of equivalent market value.

The insolvency of the other party or other failure to repurchase the securities may delay the disposition of the underlying securities or cause the Fund to receive less than the full repurchase price. Under the terms of the repurchase agreement, any amounts received by the Fund in excess of the repurchase price and related transaction costs must be remitted to the other party.

The Fund may enter into repurchase agreements in which eligible securities are transferred into joint trading accounts maintained by the custodian or sub-custodian for investment companies and other clients advised by the Fund's adviser and its affiliates. The Fund will participate on a pro rata basis with the other investment companies and clients in its share of the securities transferred under such repurchase agreements and in its share of proceeds from any repurchase or other disposition of such securities.

Investment Income, Gains and Losses, Expenses and Distributions

Investment transactions are accounted for on a trade-date basis. Realized gains and losses from investment transactions are recorded on an identified cost basis. Interest income and expenses are accrued daily. Non-cash dividends included in dividend income, if any, are recorded at fair value. Distributions to shareholders are recorded on the ex-dividend date. Positive or negative inflation adjustments on Treasury Inflation-Protected Securities (TIPS) are included in interest income. Distributions of net investment income are declared and paid monthly.

Premium and Discount Amortization

All premiums and discounts are amortized/accreted.

Federal Taxes

It is the Fund's policy to comply with the Subchapter M provision of the Internal Revenue Code and to distribute to shareholders each year substantially all of its income. Accordingly, no provision for federal income tax is necessary. As of May 31, 2010, the Fund did not have any liability for any uncertain tax positions. The Fund recognizes interest and penalties, if any, related to tax liabilities as income tax expense in the Statement of Operations. As of May 31, 2010, tax year 2010 will be subject to examination by the Fund's major tax jurisdictions, which include the United States of America and the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.

When-Issued and Delayed Delivery Transactions

The Fund may engage in when-issued or delayed delivery transactions. The Fund records when-issued securities on the trade date and maintains security positions such that sufficient liquid assets will be available to make payment for the securities purchased. Securities purchased on a when-issued or delayed delivery basis are marked to market daily and begin earning interest on the settlement date. Losses may occur on these transactions due to changes in market conditions or the failure of counterparties to perform under the contract.

Semi-Annual Shareholder Report

Futures Contracts

The Fund purchases and sells financial futures contracts to manage cash flows, enhance yield and to potentially reduce transaction costs. Upon entering into a financial futures contract with a broker, the Fund is required to deposit in a segregated account a specified amount of cash or U.S. government securities. Futures contracts are valued daily and unrealized gains or losses are recorded in a “variation margin” account. Daily, the Fund receives from or pays to the broker a specified amount of cash based upon changes in the variation margin account. When a contract is closed, the Fund recognizes a realized gain or loss. Futures contracts have market risks, including the risk that the change in the value of the contract may not correlate with the changes in the value of the underlying securities. There is minimal counterparty risk to the Fund since futures are exchange traded and the exchange's clearing house, as counterparty to all exchange traded futures, guarantees the futures against default.

Futures contracts outstanding at period end are listed after the Fund's portfolio of investments.

Option Contracts

The Fund may sell put and call options to generate gains. The seller (writer) of an option receives a payment or premium, from the buyer, which the writer keeps regardless of whether the buyer exercises the option. When the Fund writes a put or call option, an amount equal to the premium received is recorded as a liability and subsequently marked to market to reflect the current value of the option written. Premiums received from writing options which expire are treated as realized gains. The Fund, as a writer of an option, bears the market risk of an unfavorable change in the price of the underlying reference instrument. When the Fund purchases a put or call option, an amount equal to the premium paid is recorded as an increase to the cost of the investment and subsequently marked to market to reflect the current value of the option purchased. Premiums paid for purchasing options which expire are treated as realized losses. Premiums received/paid for writing/purchasing options which are exercised or closed are added to the proceeds or offset against amounts paid on the underlying reference instrument to determine the realized gain or loss. The risk associated with purchasing put and call options is limited to the premium paid. Options can trade on securities or commodities exchanges. In this case, the exchange sets all the terms of the contract except for the price. Most exchanges require investors to maintain margin accounts through their brokers to cover their potential obligations to the exchange. This protects investors against potential defaults by the counterparty.

4. Federal Tax Information

At May 31, 2010, the cost of investments for federal tax purposes was $172,379,276. The net unrealized appreciation of investments for federal tax purposes excluding any unrealized appreciation/depreciation resulting from futures contracts and written call options was $2,977,713. This consists of net unrealized appreciation from investments for those securities having an excess of value over cost of $2,991,669 and net unrealized depreciation from investments for those securities having an excess of cost over value of $13,956.

5. Investment Adviser Fee and Other Transactions with Affiliates

Investment Adviser Fee

The Fund has entered into an Investment Management Agreement (the “Agreement”) with the Adviser to serve as investment manager to the Fund. The agreement provides for an annual management fee, equal to 0.85% of the average daily value of the Fund's Managed Assets. For these purposes, “Managed Assets” means the total assets of the Fund (including assets attributable to any form of investment leverage that the Fund may in the future determine to utilize) minus the sum of accrued liabilities (other than debt representing financial leverage).

In order to reduce Fund expenses, the Adviser has contractually agreed to waive a portion of its management fee and/or reimburse expenses so that total annual fund operating expenses paid by the Fund's Common Shares (after the waivers and/or reimbursements) will not exceed 1.05% (excluding acquired fund fees and expenses, if any). This contractual fee waiver will be in place for the first five years of the Fund's operations and may only be terminated or revised by the Trustees. For the period ended May 31, 2010, the Adviser waived $6,186 of its fee.

Pursuant to a sub-advisory agreement between the Adviser and Dix Hills Partners, LLC (the “Sub-Adviser”), the Sub-Adviser receives an annual fee from the Adviser in an amount equal to the following as a percentage of average daily managed assets:

Amounts Raised in IPOFee Paid to Sub-Adviser
$0 to $200,000,0000.425%
$200,000,000 and over0.3825%

Administrative Fee

Federated Administrative Services (FAS), under the Administrative Services Agreement, provides the Fund with administrative personnel and services. FAS currently receives no compensation for providing administrative services to the Fund.


Certain of the Officers and Trustees of the Fund are Officers and Directors or Trustees of the above companies.

6. Organizational Expenses

The Fund has agreed to pay organizational and offering expenses of up to $0.04 per share. The Advisor has agreed to pay the amount by which the aggregate of all of the Fund's organizational expenses and offering costs (other than sales load) exceed $0.04 per share.

Semi-Annual Shareholder Report

7. Interfund Lending

Pursuant to an Exemptive Order issued by the Securities and Exchange Commission, the Fund, along with other funds advised by subsidiaries of Federated Investors, Inc., may participate in an interfund lending program. This program provides an alternative credit facility allowing the funds to borrow from other participating affiliated funds. As of May 31, 2010, there were no outstanding loans. During the period ended May 31, 2010, the program was not utilized.

8. Legal Proceedings

Since October 2003, Federated Investors, Inc. and related entities (collectively, “Federated”), and various Federated sponsored mutual funds (“Federated Funds”) have been named as defendants in several class action lawsuits now pending in the United States District Court for the District of Maryland. The lawsuits were purportedly filed on behalf of people who purchased, owned and/or redeemed shares of certain Federated Funds during specified periods beginning November 1, 1998. The suits are generally similar in alleging that Federated engaged in illegal and improper trading practices including market timing and late trading in concert with certain institutional traders, which allegedly caused financial injury to the mutual fund shareholders. Federated without admitting the validity of any claim has reached a preliminary settlement with the Plaintiffs in these cases. Any settlement would have to be approved by the Court. Federated entities have also been named as defendants in several additional lawsuits that are now pending in the United States District Court for the Western District of Pennsylvania. These lawsuits have been consolidated into a single action alleging excessive advisory fees involving one of the Federated Funds. The Board of the Federated Funds retained the law firm of Dickstein Shapiro LLP to represent the Federated Funds in these lawsuits. Federated and the Federated Funds, and their respective counsel, have been defending this litigation, and none of the Federated Funds remains a defendant in any of the lawsuits. Additional lawsuits based upon similar allegations may be filed in the future. The potential impact of these lawsuits, all of which seek monetary damages, attorneys' fees and expenses, and future potential similar suits is uncertain. Although we do not believe that these lawsuits will have a material adverse effect on the Federated Funds, there can be no assurance that these suits, ongoing adverse publicity and/or other developments resulting from the allegations in these matters will not result in increased Federated Fund redemptions or reduced sales of shares of the Federated Funds, or other adverse consequences for the Federated Funds.

9. Subsequent Events

Management has evaluated subsequent events through the date the financial statements were issued, and determined that no events have occurred that require additional disclosure.

Evaluation and Approval of Advisory
Contract - May 2010

Federated Enhanced Treasury Income Fund (the “Fund”)

The Fund's Board reviewed the Fund's investment advisory contract at meetings held in May 2010. Because the Fund did not yet have a meaningful operating history, the Board's decision to approve the contract reflects the exercise of its business judgment primarily on whether to authorize the continued offering of this new investment vehicle, as originally proposed by, and based on information previously requested by the Board and provided by, the Federated organization, and based on Federated's recommendation to go forward with the Fund.

In this connection, the Federated funds' Board had previously appointed a Senior Officer, whose duties include specified responsibilities relating to the process by which advisory fees are to be charged to a Federated fund. The Senior Officer has the authority to retain consultants, experts, or staff as may be reasonably necessary to assist in the performance of his duties, reports directly to the Board, and may be terminated only with the approval of a majority of the independent members of the Board. The Senior Officer prepared and furnished to the Board an independent, written evaluation that covered topics discussed below. The Board considered that evaluation, along with other information, in deciding to approve the advisory contract.

During its review of the contract, the Board also considered compensation and benefits received by the Adviser. This included the fees received or to be received for services provided to the Fund by other entities in the Federated organization and research services (if any) received by the Adviser from brokers that execute Federated fund trades, as well as advisory fees. The Board is also familiar with and considered judicial decisions concerning allegedly excessive investment advisory fees which have indicated that the following factors may be relevant to an Adviser's fiduciary duty with respect to its receipt of compensation from a fund: the nature and quality of the services provided by the Adviser, including the performance of the Fund; the Adviser's cost of providing the services; the extent to which the Adviser may realize “economies of scale” as the Fund grows larger; any indirect benefits that may accrue to the Adviser and its affiliates as a result of the Adviser's relationship with the Fund; performance and expenses of comparable funds; and the extent to which the independent Board members are fully informed about all facts the Board deems relevant bearing on the Adviser's services and fees. The Board further considered management fees (including any components thereof) charged to institutional and other clients of the Adviser for what might be viewed as like services and the cost to the Adviser and its affiliates of supplying services pursuant to the management fee agreements, excluding any intra-corporate Semi-Annual Shareholder Report

profit and profit margins of the Adviser and its affiliates for supplying such services. The Board was aware of these factors and was guided by them in its review of the Fund's advisory contract to the extent it considered them to be appropriate and relevant, as discussed further below.

The Board considered and weighed these circumstances in light of its substantial accumulated experience in working with Federated on matters relating to other Federated funds, and was assisted in its deliberations by independent legal counsel. Since the inception of the Fund, the Board has requested and received substantial and detailed information about the Fund and the Federated organization that was in addition to the extensive materials that comprise and accompany the Senior Officer's evaluation. Federated provided much of this information at each regular meeting of the Board occurring since the Fund's inception, and furnished additional reports in connection with the particular meeting at which the Board's formal review of the advisory contract initially occurred. Between regularly scheduled meetings, the Board also received information on particular matters as the need arose. Thus, the Board's consideration of the advisory contract included review of the Senior Officer's evaluation, accompanying data and additional reports covering such matters as: the Adviser's investment philosophy, revenue, profitability, personnel and processes; investment and operating strategies; the Fund's short- and long-term performance (in absolute terms, both on a gross basis and net of expenses, as well as in relationship to its particular investment program and certain competitor or “peer group” funds and/or other benchmarks, as appropriate), and comments on the reasons for performance; the Fund's investment objectives; the Fund's expenses (including the advisory fee itself and the overall expense structure of the Fund, both in absolute terms and relative to similar and/or competing funds, with due regard for contractual or voluntary expense limitations); the use and allocation of brokerage commissions derived from trading the Fund's portfolio securities (if any); and the nature, quality and extent of the advisory and other services provided to the Fund by the Adviser and its affiliates. The Board also considered the preferences and expectations of Fund shareholders and their relative sophistication; the continuing state of competition in the investment company industry and market practices; the range of comparable fees for similar funds; compliance and audit reports concerning the Federated funds and the Federated companies that service them (including communications from regulatory agencies), as well as Federated's responses to any issues raised therein; and relevant developments in the fund industry and how the Federated funds and/or Federated are responding to them. The Board's evaluation process is evolutionary. The criteria considered and the emphasis placed on relevant criteria change in recognition of changing circumstances in the fund marketplace.

Semi-Annual Shareholder Report

With respect to the Fund's expenses in particular, the Board has found the use of comparisons to other closed-end funds with comparable investment programs to be relevant, given the high degree of competition in the investment company industry. The Board focused on comparisons with other similar funds more heavily than non-fund products or services because it is believed that they are more relevant. For example, other closed-end funds are the products most like the Fund, they are readily available to Fund shareholders as alternative investment vehicles, and they are the type of investment vehicle in fact chosen and maintained by the Fund's anticipated investors. The range of their fees and expenses therefore appears to be a generally reliable indication of what consumers have found to be reasonable in the precise marketplace in which the Fund will compete. In this regard, the Senior Officer also reviewed Federated's fees for providing advisory services to Federated registered investment companies as well as products outside the Federated family of funds (e.g., institutional and separate accounts). He concluded that registered investment companies and institutional accounts are inherently different products. Those differences include, but are not limited to, different types of targeted investors; being subject to different laws and regulations; different legal structures; different average account sizes; different associated costs; portfolio management techniques made necessary by such differences; and portfolio manager time spent in review of securities pricing. The Senior Officer did not consider these fee schedules to be determinative in judging the appropriateness of fund advisory contracts.

The Senior Officer reviewed reports compiled by Federated, using data supplied by independent fund ranking organizations, regarding the fees charged by other regulated investment companies, noting his view that comparisons to fund peer groups are relevant in judging the reasonableness of proposed fees.

It was recognized that the factors mentioned above relating to such matters as fund performance and any indirect benefits that may accrue to the Adviser and its affiliates as a result of the Adviser's relationship with the Fund, are essentially impossible to apply before the Fund has experienced any meaningful operating history. Nevertheless, the Board monitors the Fund's performance quarterly as information becomes available. Moreover, in connection with the Board's governance of other Federated funds, it should be noted that the Board regularly receives financial information about Federated, including reports on the compensation and benefits Federated derives from its relationships with the other Federated funds. These reports cover not only the fees under the advisory contracts, but also fees received by Federated's subsidiaries for providing other services to the Federated funds under separate contracts (e.g., for serving as the Federated funds' administrator). The reports also discuss any indirect benefit Federated may derive from its receipt of research services from brokers who execute Federated fund trades. In addition, the Board also considered the fact that, in order for a fund to be competitive in the marketplace, Federated and its Semi-Annual Shareholder Report

affiliates frequently waive fees and/or reimburse expenses and have disclosed to fund investors and/or indicated to the Board their intention to do so in the future, where appropriate. Moreover, the Board receives regular reports regarding the institution or elimination of these voluntary waivers.

In connection with the Board's initial consideration of the contract, Federated had previously furnished reports, requested by the Senior Officer, that reported projected revenues on a fund by fund basis and made estimates of the allocation of expenses on a fund-by-fund basis, using allocation methodologies specified by the Senior Officer. The Senior Officer noted that, although they may apply consistent allocation processes, the inherent difficulties in allocating costs (and the unavoidable arbitrary aspects of that exercise) and the lack of consensus on how to allocate those costs may render such allocation reports unreliable. The allocation reports were considered in the analysis by the Board but were determined to be of limited use.

The Board and the Senior Officer also reviewed a report compiled by Federated comparing profitability information for Federated to other publicly held fund management companies. In this regard, the Senior Officer noted the limited availability of such information, but nonetheless concluded that Federated's profit margins did not appear to be excessive and the Board agreed.

The Board also considered whether the Fund might benefit from “economies of scale” and noted that, as a “closed-end fund,” which has made an offering of a fixed number of common shares and (other than the issuance of preferred shares contemplated at the time of the Fund's initial public offering) has not made and does not expect to make additional offerings to raise more assets, the Fund is unlikely to grow materially in size and, as a consequence, there are no meaningful “economies of scale” to be realized from internal growth. Accordingly, the Board concluded that this was not a relevant consideration in its overall evaluation.

The Senior Officer's evaluation noted his belief that the information and observations contained in his evaluation supported a finding that the proposed management fees are reasonable, and that Federated appeared to provide appropriate administrative services to the Fund for the fees paid. Under these circumstances, no changes were recommended to, and no objection was raised to, the continuation of the Fund's advisory contract. With due regard for the fact that the Fund did not yet have a meaningful operating history, the Board concluded that the nature, quality and scope of services provided the Fund by the Adviser and its affiliates were satisfactory.

In its decision to continue an existing investment advisory contract, the Board was mindful of the potential disruptions of the Fund's operations and various risks, uncertainties and other effects that could occur as a result of a decision to terminate or not renew an advisory contract. In particular, the Board recognized that many of the shareholders that have invested in the Fund since its inception may have done so on the strength of the Adviser's industry standing and Semi-Annual Shareholder Report

reputation and with the expectation that the Adviser will have a continuing role in providing advisory services to the Fund. Thus, the Board's approval of the advisory contract reflected the fact that it is the shareholders who have effectively selected the Adviser by virtue of having invested in the Fund.

The Board based its decision to approve the advisory contract on the totality of the circumstances and relevant factors and with a view to past and future long-term considerations. Not all of the factors and considerations identified above were necessarily relevant to the Fund, nor did the Board consider any one of them to be determinative. With respect to the factors that are relevant, the Board's decision to approve the contract reflects its determination that, based upon the information previously requested and supplied, Federated's proposal to establish and manage the Fund, and its past performance and actions in providing services to other mutual funds, provide a satisfactory basis to support the business decision to continue the existing arrangements.
