The ex-dividend date is expected to be September 4, 2012. The monthly distribution information for the Fund appears below.
First Trust Energy Infrastructure Fund (FIF):

The distribution may consist of net investment income earned by the Fund, net short-term realized capital gains and/or tax-deferred return of capital. Tax-deferred return of capital, if any, is primarily due to the tax treatment of cash distributions made by master-limited partnerships (“MLPs”) in which the Fund invests. The final determination of the source of tax status of all 2012 distributions will be made after the end of 2012.
The Fund is a non-diversified, closed-end management investment company that seeks to provide a high level of total return with an emphasis on current distributions paid to shareholders. The Fund seeks to achieve its investment objectives by investing primarily in securities of companies engaged in the energy infrastructure sector. These companies principally include publicly-traded MLPs and limited liability companies taxed as partnerships, MLP affiliates, Canadian income trusts and their successor companies, pipeline companies, utilities, and other companies that derive at least 50% of their revenues from operating or providing services in support of infrastructure assets such as pipelines, power transmission and petroleum and natural gas storage in the petroleum, natural gas and power generation industries.
