Tortoise Pipeline & Energy Fund Announces Initial Distribution

The Board of Directors of Tortoise Pipeline & Energy Fund, Inc. (NYSE: TTP) today declared its initial distribution of $0.40625 per share. The distribution will be paid on March 1, 2012 to stockholders of record on Feb. 22, 2012. This distribution achieves the fund’s target of a 6.5 percent annualized yield on its $25 public offering price.

The fund focuses particularly on North American pipeline companies that transport natural gas, natural gas liquids, crude oil and refined products, and to a lesser extent, on other energy infrastructure companies. As a flow-through regulated investment company, the fund may efficiently purchase securities of traditional pipeline corporations along with master limited partnerships. Its investment objective is to provide stockholders a high level of total return, with an emphasis on current distributions.

For 2012 tax purposes, the character of the distribution will be determined at year-end and will be reported to stockholders at the beginning of 2013 on their Form 1099. For book purposes, the source of this distribution is estimated to primarily consist of dividend income (eligible for qualified dividend treatment) and to a lesser extent, return of capital.
