SEVERAL NUVEEN MUNICIPAL CLOSED-END FUNDS DECLARE DISTRIBUTIONS

Nuveen Investments, a leading global provider of investment services to institutions as well as individual investors, today announced distributions for certain Nuveen Connecticut, Georgia and North Carolina state municipal bond closed-end funds. The shareholders of the funds listed below, have approved proxies to reorganize into larger funds. The reorganization is expected to take place after the close of business on Friday, July 6, 2012, effective Monday July 9, 2012, with three funds acquiring the common and preferred assets of the other funds. The goal of this reorganization is to create three, larger state-specific municipal bond funds, with lower operating expenses and increased share trading volume.

Regulations require that the acquired funds fully distribute any accumulated undistributed net investment income (UNII) as well as capital gains prior to effecting a reorganization. Consequently, eight funds (NFC, NGK, NGO, NPG, NZX, NRB, NNO and NII) are declaring distributions which will comply with these regulations, payable August 1, 2012 to fund shareholders of record on July 6, 2012. In addition, the acquiring funds NTC, NKG and NNC are declaring distributions payable August 1, 2012 to shareholders of record on July 6, 2012. Following the merger NTC, NKG and NNC will declare an additional distribution, also payable August 1, 2012. The total dollar amount of the combined pre- and post-merger tax-exempt distributions received on August 1, 2012 will be equal to or greater than the shareholder’s prior monthly tax-exempt dividend.
