NOTES TO FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (UNAUDITED)

1 Significant Accounting Policies
- -------------------------------------------
   High Yield Municipals Portfolio (the Portfolio) is registered under the
   Investment Company Act of 1940, as a diversified open-end management
   investment company. The Portfolio, which was organized as a trust under the
   laws of the State of New York on May 1, 1995, seeks to provide high current
   income exempt from regular federal income tax. The Declaration of Trust
   permits the Trustees to issue interests in the Portfolio. The following is a
   summary of significant accounting policies of the Portfolio. The policies are
   in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles.

 A Investment Valuation -- Municipal bonds are normally valued on the basis of
   valuations furnished by a pricing service. Taxable obligations, if any, for
   which price quotations are readily available are normally valued at the mean
   between the latest bid and asked prices. Futures contracts listed on
   commodity exchanges are valued at closing settlement prices. Short-term
   obligations maturing in sixty days or less are valued at amortized cost which
   approximates value. Investments for which valuations or market quotations are
   unavailable are valued at fair value using methods determined in good faith
   by or at the direction of the Trustees.

 B Income -- Interest income is determined on the basis of interest accrued,
   adjusted for amortization of premium or discount when required for federal
   income tax purposes.

 C Income Taxes -- The Portfolio is treated as a partnership for federal tax
   purposes. No provision is made by the Portfolio for federal or state taxes on
   any taxable income of the Portfolio because each investor in the Portfolio is
   ultimately responsible for the payment of any taxes. Since some of the
   Portfolio's investors are regulated investment companies that invest all or
   substantially all of their assets in the Portfolio, the Portfolio normally
   must satisfy the applicable source of income and diversification requirements
   (under the Internal Revenue Code) in order for its investors to satisfy them.
   The Portfolio will allocate at least annually among its investors each
   investor's distributive share of the Portfolio's net taxable (if any) and
   tax-exempt investment income, net realized capital gains, and any other items
   of income, gain, loss, deduction or credit. Interest income received by the
   Portfolio on investments in municipal bonds, which is excludable from gross
   income under the Internal Revenue Code, will retain its status as income
   exempt from Federal income tax when allocated to the Portfolio's investors.
   The portion of such interest, if any, earned on private activity bonds issued
   after August 7, 1986 may be considered a tax preference item for investors.

 D Deferred Organization Expenses -- Costs incurred by the Portfolio in
   connection with its organization are being amortized on the straight-line
   basis over five years.

 E Financial Futures Contracts -- Upon the entering of a financial futures
   contract, the Portfolio is required to deposit ("initial margin") either in
   cash or securities an amount equal to a certain percentage of the purchase
   price indicated in the financial futures contract. Subsequent payments are
   made or received by the Portfolio ("margin maintenance") each day, dependent
   on the daily fluctuations in the value of the underlying security, and are
   recorded for book purposes as unrealized gains or losses by the Portfolio.
   The Portfolio's investment in financial futures contracts is designed for
   both hedging against anticipated future changes in interest rates and
   investment purposes. Should interest rates move unexpectedly, the Portfolio
   may not achieve the anticipated benefits of the financial futures contracts
   and may realize a loss.

 F Legal Fees -- Legal fees and other related expenses incurred as part of
   negotiations of the terms and requirements of capital infusions, or that are
   expected to result in the restructuring of or a plan of reorganization for an
   investment are recorded as realized losses. Ongoing expenditures to protect
   or enhance an investment are treated as operating expenses.

 G When-issued and Delayed Delivery Transactions -- The Portfolio may engage in
  when-issued and delayed delivery transactions. The Portfolio records
   when-issued securities on trade date and maintains security positions such
   that sufficient liquid assets will be available to make payments for the
   securities purchased. Securities purchased on when-issued or delayed delivery
   basis are marked to market daily and begin accruing interest on settlement
   date.

 H Expense Reduction -- Investors Bank & Trust Company (IBT) serves as custodian
   of the Portfolio. Pursuant to the custodian agreement, IBT receives a fee
   reduced by credits which are determined based on the average daily cash
   balances the Portfolio maintains with IBT. All significant credit balances
   used to reduce the Portfolio's custodian fees are reported as a reduction of
   operating expenses in the Statement of Operations.

 I Use of Estimates -- The preparation of the financial statements in conformity
   with generally accepted accounting principles requires management to make
   estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and
   liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts
   of revenue and expense during the reporting period. Actual results could
   differ from those estimates.

 J Other -- Investment transactions are accounted for on a trade date basis.

 K Interim Financial Statements -- The interim financial statements relating to
   July 31, 1999 and for the six months then ended have not been audited by
   independent certified public accountants, but in the opinion of the
   Portfolio's management, reflect all adjustments, necessary for the fair
   presentation of the financial statements.

2 Investment Adviser Fee and Other Transactions with Affiliates
- -------------------------------------------
   The investment adviser fee is earned by Boston Management and Research (BMR),
   a wholly-owned subsidiary of Eaton Vance Management (EVM), as compensation
   for management and investment advisory services rendered to the Portfolio.
   The fee is based upon a percentage of average daily net assets plus a
   percentage of gross income (i.e. income other than gains from the sales of
   securities). For the six months ended July 31, 1999, the fee was equivalent
   to 0.59% (annualized) of the Portfolio's average net assets for such period
   and amounted to $1,183,688. Except as to Trustees of the Portfolio who are
   not members of EVM's or BMR's organization, officers and Trustees receive
   remuneration for their services to the Portfolio out of such investment
   adviser fee. Certain officers and Trustees of the Portfolio are officers of
   the above organizations. Trustees of the Portfolio that are not affiliated
   with the Investment Adviser may elect to defer receipt of all or a percentage
   of their annual fees in accordance with the terms of the Trustees Deferred
   Compensation Plan. For the six months ended July 31, 1999, no significant
   amounts have been deferred.

3 Investments
- -------------------------------------------
   Purchases and sales of investments, other than U.S. Government securities and
   short-term obligations, aggregated $109,717,532 and $81,058,604,
   respectively, for the six months ended July 31, 1999.

4 Federal Income Tax Basis of Investments
- -------------------------------------------
   The cost and unrealized appreciation/depreciation in value of the investments
   owned at July 31, 1999, as computed on a federal income tax basis, were as
   follows:

<TABLE>
<S>                                       <C>
AGGREGATE COST                            $ 399,417,902
- -------------------------------------------------------
Gross unrealized appreciation                16,835,293
Gross unrealized depreciation               (16,444,725)
- -------------------------------------------------------
NET UNREALIZED APPRECIATION               $     390,568
- -------------------------------------------------------
</TABLE>

5 Line of Credit
- -------------------------------------------
   The Portfolio participates with other portfolios and funds managed by BMR and
   EVM and its affiliates in a $130 million unsecured line of credit agreement
   with a group of banks. Borrowings will be made by the Portfolio solely to
   facilitate the handling of unusual and/or unanticipated short-term cash
   requirements. Interest is charged to each participating portfolio or fund
   based on its borrowings at an amount above either the Eurodollar rate or
   federal funds rate. In addition, a fee computed at an annual rate of 0.10% on
   the daily unused portion of the line of credit is allocated among the
   participating portfolios and funds at the end of each quarter. At July 31,
   1999, the Portfolio had no balance outstanding pursuant to the line of
   credit.

6 Financial Instruments
- -------------------------------------------
   The Portfolio regularly trades in financial instruments with off-balance
   sheet risk in the normal course of its investing activities to assist in
   managing exposure to various market risks. These financial instruments
   include futures contracts and may involve, to a varying degree, elements of
   risk in excess of the amounts recognized for financial statement purposes.
   The notional or contractual amounts of these instruments represent the
   investment the Portfolio has in particular classes of financial instruments
   and do not necessarily represent the amounts potentially subject to risk. The
   measurement of the risks associated with these instruments is meaningful only
   when all related and offsetting transactions are considered. At July 31,
   1999, the Portfolio had no open futures contracts.
