ClearBridge Energy MLP Total Return Fund Inc. (“CTR”) Announces Increased Quarterly Distribution Rate For February 2013

ClearBridge Energy MLP Total Return Fund Inc. (NYSE: CTR) today announced a quarterly distribution of $0.3300 per common share payable in February 2013. The Fund had previously paid a quarterly distribution of $0.3250 per share.

The distribution schedule appears below:

Amount

February 02/13/2013 02/15/2013 02/22/2013 $ 0.3300

In declaring the new rate, the Fund cited increased distributions received from the Fund's energy MLP portfolio holdings which are reflected in the Fund’s increased distribution rate of $0.3300 per common share.

It is currently anticipated that substantially all of this distribution will be treated for tax purposes as a return of capital. The final determination of such amount will be made in early 2014 when the Fund can determine its earnings and profits. The final tax status of the distribution may differ substantially from this preliminary information.

This press release is not for tax reporting purposes but is being provided to announce the amount of the Fund’s distributions that have been declared by the Board of Directors. In early 2014, after definitive information is available, the Fund will send stockholders a Form 1099-DIV, if applicable, specifying how the distributions paid by the Fund during the prior calendar year should be characterized for purposes of reporting the distributions on a stockholder’s tax return (e.g., ordinary income, long-term capital gain or return of capital).
