Tortoise MLP Fund, Inc. Announces Distribution Increase

Stocks in this article: NTG

The Board of Directors of Tortoise MLP Fund, Inc. (NYSE: NTG) today declared the company’s third quarter 2011 distribution of $0.41 per share, an increase of 0.6 percent compared to the $0.4075 distribution in the previous quarter. The distribution is payable on Sept. 1, 2011, to stockholders of record on Aug. 24, 2011.

"Our distribution increase reflects our confidence, as long-term investors, in the fundamentally stable and growing distributions from MLPs in our portfolio," said Tortoise Capital Advisors’ Managing Director, Terry Matlack. “Additionally, despite recent market conditions, NTG’s relatively low leverage positions it to withstand periods of MLP price volatility.”

For tax purposes, the company estimates at least 90 percent of NTG’s 2011 distributions will be characterized as return of capital with the remaining percentage characterized as qualified dividend income. The final characterization will not be made until determination of its earnings and profits after year end. For book purposes, the source of this distribution is estimated to be 100 percent return of capital.
