Global High Income Fund Inc. — Distribution Characteristics For February 2013

Stocks in this article: GHI

If you chose to receive your distributions in cash, a check should have been sent to you or a credit should have been made on your financial intermediary or Fund account statement. If you chose to reinvest your distributions, that statement (or a subsequent one) should indicate the additional shares purchased for your account in full and fractional shares of the Fund's common stock.

You should not draw any conclusions about the Fund’s investment performance from the amount of the monthly distribution or from the terms of the Fund’s managed distribution policy.

If you would like to change your distribution option, please write or call your broker or, if you hold shares directly with the Fund, the Fund's distribution disbursing agent, BNY Mellon Investment Servicing, at 1-800-331-1710. For more information about the Fund, please contact: UBS Global Asset Management Closed-End Funds Desk, 888-793-8637.

Please find below additional information regarding the Fund’s performance. Please note that this information is primarily based on the Fund’s net asset value based performance, not its market price based performance. Market price based performance for various periods is included in the Fund’s most recent report to shareholders and is different.

The Fund’s net asset value (“NAV”) returns assume, for illustration only, that dividends and other distributions, if any, were reinvested at the NAV on the payable dates.


Cumulative Distribution Rate for the Fund’s fiscal period (November 1, 2012 through January 31, 2013) measured on the dollar value of distributions in the year-to-date period as a percentage of the Fund’s NAV as of January 31, 2013.


Average Annual Distribution Rate is the simple arithmetic average of the Annual Distribution Rates for the preceding five-year period. The Annual Distribution Rates are calculated by taking the total distributions paid during the period divided by average daily NAV for the period.


The Current Annualized Distribution Rate is the current monthly distribution rate annualized as a percentage of the Fund’s NAV as of January 31, 2013.
