The Cushing® MLP Total Return Fund Announces Quarterly Distribution

DALLAS, July 28, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- The Cushing® MLP Total Return Fund (NYSE: SRV) (the "Fund") declared a quarterly distribution of $0.225 per common share for the quarter ending August 31, 2011. The distributions will be payable on September 10, 2011 to shareholders of record on August 26, 2011. The ex-date for the distributions is August 24, 2011. With the payment of this quarter's distributions, SRV shareholders will have realized aggregate distributions of $4.06 per share since inception.

It is anticipated but not certain that a majority of this distribution will be treated as a return of capital. The final determination of such amount will be made in early 2012, after the end of the calendar year when the Fund determines its earnings and profits for the year. The final tax status of the distribution may differ substantially from this preliminary information.

The Cushing® MLP Total Return Fund is a non-diversified, closed-end management investment company. The Fund's investment objective is to obtain a high after-tax total return from a combination of capital appreciation and current income. No assurance can be given that the Fund's investment objective will be achieved. The Fund seeks to achieve its investment objective by investing, under normal market conditions, at least 80% of its net assets, plus any borrowings for investment purposes, in MLP investments.

The Fund is traded on the New York Stock Exchange under the symbol "SRV." The Fund is managed by Cushing® MLP Asset Management, LP, an SEC-registered investment adviser headquartered in Dallas, Texas.
