The Board of Trustees of the GAMCO Natural Resources, Gold & Income Trust by GABELLI (NYSE:GNT) (the “Fund”) declared monthly cash distributions of $0.14 per share for each of January, February, and March 2013.
The distribution for January 2013 will be payable on January 24, 2013 to common shareholders of record on January 16, 2013.
The distribution for February 2013 will be payable on February 21, 2013 to common shareholders of record on February 13, 2013.
The distribution for March 2013 will be payable on March 21, 2013 to common shareholders of record on March 14, 2013.
Each quarter, the Board of Trustees reviews the amount of any potential distribution from the income, capital gain, or capital available. In light of the Fund’s income, net asset value and the financial market environment, the Board of Trustees is reviewing the monthly cash distribution amount for future periods. The distribution rate should not be considered the dividend yield or total return on an investment in the Fund.
The Fund currently intends to make monthly cash distributions of all or a portion of its investment company taxable income (which includes ordinary income and realized net short-term capital gains) to common shareholders. The Fund also intends to make annual distributions of its realized net long-term capital gains, if any. A portion of the distribution may be a return of capital. Various factors will affect the level of the Fund’s income, such as its asset mix and use of covered call strategies. To permit the Fund to maintain more stable distributions, the Fund may from time to time distribute more or less than the entire amount of income earned in a particular period. Because the Fund’s current monthly distributions are subject to modification by the Board of Trustees at any time and the Fund’s income will fluctuate, there can be no assurance that the Fund will pay distributions at a particular rate or frequency.
