Nuveen New York 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 six Nuveen New York municipal closed-end funds. The shareholders of these funds, Nuveen New York Quality Income Fund, Inc. (NYSE: NUN), Nuveen New York Premium Income Fund, Inc. (NYSE: NNF), Nuveen New York Investment Quality Municipal Income Fund, Inc. (NYSE: NQN), Nuveen New York Select Quality Income Fund, Inc. (NYSE: NVN), Nuveen New York Dividend Advantage Municipal Income Fund (NYSE MKT: NKO) and Nuveen New York AMT-Free Municipal Income Fund (NYSE MKT: NRK) have each approved the reorganization of their fund into a single, larger fund. The reorganization is expected to take place after the close of business on Friday, March 8, 2013, effective Monday March 11, 2013, with NRK acquiring the common and preferred assets of the other funds. The goal of this reorganization is to create a single, larger AMT-free New York municipal bond fund, with lower operating expenses and increased share trading volume.

Regulations require that the acquired funds fully distribute any accumulated undistributed net investment income (UNII) prior to effecting the reorganization. Consequently, five funds (NUN, NNF, NQN, NVN and NKO) are declaring distributions which will comply with these regulations, payable April 1, 2013 and May 1, 2013 to fund shareholders of record on March 8, 2013. In addition, the acquiring fund (NRK) is declaring distributions payable April 1, 2013 and May 1, 2013 to shareholders of record on March 8, 2013. A portion of these distributions for four of the funds will be comprised of long-term capital gains under the Internal Revenue Code. The distribution information is detailed in the table above.

Since the record date is March 8, 2013 for all six funds’ distributions payable April 1, 2013 and May 1, 2013, any new fund shares acquired between the associated ex-dividend date of March 6, 2013 and the June distribution’s ex-dividend date of May 13, 2013 will not receive a full monthly distribution until June 1, 2013. However, the tax-exempt income earned on these shares during this period will be reflected in each fund’s net asset value as undistributed net investment income (UNII) which will be paid out over time. Shareholders of all six funds who hold shares as of the March 8, 2013 record date will continue to receive full monthly distributions each month from April through June, 2013.
