Neuberger Berman MLP Income Fund Announces $1 Billion Initial Public Offering

NEW YORK, March 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Neuberger Berman MLP Income Fund Inc. (the "Fund"), a newly organized closed-end fund, announced today the completion of pricing for its initial public offering.  The Fund raised $1.005 billion in gross proceeds, agreeing to sell 50,250,000 shares of common stock at a price of $20.00 per share. The Fund has granted the underwriters an option to purchase up to 7,490,000 additional shares of common stock at the public offering price, less the sales load, within 45 days of the offering to cover over-allotments, if any. Should the underwriters exercise their overallotment option in full, the Fund will have raised approximately $1.155 billion.  The Fund began trading today on the NYSE MKT under the symbol "NML."

The Fund, which is advised by Neuberger Berman, one of the world's leading employee-controlled money managers, has an investment objective to seek total return with an emphasis on cash distributions. The Fund will invest at least 80% of its managed assets in master limited partnerships or limited liability companies that have substantially similar economic characteristics ("MLPs") and currently expects its MLP investments to emphasize companies that the portfolio managers believe have growth potential and operate in the midstream natural resources sector.

The Fund is managed by members of Neuberger Berman's Rachlin Group, a team of veteran investors led by Douglas Rachlin, who has been managing portfolios of MLPs since 1996. As of January 31, 2013, the Rachlin Group managed approximately $3.5 billion in MLP assets for institutions and high net worth individuals.

"We're pleased to introduce Neuberger Berman MLP Income Fund and provide investors with what we believe is a compelling opportunity to invest in the build-out of North America's energy infrastructure,'' said Robert Conti, President of the Fund and Neuberger Berman Management LLC, the Fund's investment manager.

"Technological developments in the United States, especially the unlocking of crude oil and natural gas resources from shale and tight formations, have had a profound impact on future energy supply growth forecasts," said Douglas Rachlin, the Fund's lead Portfolio Manager and a Managing Director of Neuberger Berman. "Increased shale production may require over $250 billion of capital investments to build out new energy infrastructure over the next 25 years, which we believe may bode well for new MLP issuance."

The underwriting syndicate for the Fund's initial public offering was led by Wells Fargo Securities, LLC, Citigroup Global Markets Inc., Morgan Stanley & Co. LLC and Ameriprise Financial Services, Inc.
