Two Nuveen Closed-End Funds Issue VRDP Shares

Nuveen Investments, a leading global provider of investment services to institutions as well as individual investors, today announced that two municipal bond closed-end funds have issued Variable Rate Demand Preferred (VRDP) shares through private placements with qualified institutional buyers, as defined pursuant to Rule 144A under the Securities Act of 1933. The proceeds of the issuance will be used to redeem all of the outstanding MuniFund Term Preferred (MTP) shares of each of the funds as previously announced. In addition, as previously announced, one of the funds will redeem all of its outstanding Variable Rate MuniFund Term Preferred (VMTP) shares.

VRDP issuance details are as follow:
Fund       Ticker      

VRDP Description

VRDP Issuance Amount ($mm)
      Liquidity Provider    
Nuveen Ohio Quality Income Municipal Fund       NUO       Series 1       1,480       $148.000       Royal Bank of Canada
Nuveen California Dividend Advantage Municipal Fund 3       NZH       Series 1       1,600       $160.000       Barclays Bank PLC

VRDP shares include a liquidity feature that allows holders of VRDP to have their shares purchased by a liquidity provider in the event that sell orders have not been matched with purchase orders and successfully settled in a remarketing. These VRDP shares qualify as equity for income tax purposes. This affords VRDP share dividends the same tax treatment as the income on the fund’s underlying investments, notwithstanding VRDP terms that require the fund to redeem VRDP shares still owned by the liquidity provider if there are six months of continuous, unsuccessful remarketing.
