Quarterly Managed Distributions

The goal of the fund's managed distribution program is to provide shareholders relatively consistent and predictable cash flow by systematically converting its expected long-term return potential into regular distributions. Potential distribution sources for regular distributions throughout the year include realized gains and return of capital, in addition to net investment income. If a distribution includes anything other than net investment income, the fund provides a notice of the best estimate of its distribution sources at that time which may be viewed at These estimates may not match the final tax characterization contained in shareholders' 1099-DIV forms after the end of the year.

Under a Managed Distribution policy, Nuveen closed-end funds seek to maintain a stable regular distribution amount that, over the long term, matches the fund's total distributions paid to its total return. You should not draw any conclusions about a fund's past or future investment performance from its current distribution rate or from the terms of its Managed Distribution Policy.
  • Actual returns likely will differ from projected long-term returns, (and therefore a fund's distribution rate, also), at least over shorter time periods. Over a specific timeframe, a fund's net asset value will increase (if returns exceed distributions), or decrease (if distributions exceed returns), by the difference between actual returns and total distributions.
  • A return of capital is a non-taxable distribution of a portion of the fund's capital. When fund returns exceed distributions, return of capital may represent portfolio gains earned, but not realized as a taxable capital gain. In periods when fund returns fall short of distributions, it will represent a portion of your original principal unless the shortfall is offset during other time periods over the life of your investment (previous or subsequent) when the fund's total return exceeds distributions.
  • For additional information about managed distributions, please see Understanding Managed Distributions.

The following table provides estimates of the Fund's distribution sources, reflecting year-to-date cumulative experience through the month-end prior to the latest distribution. The Fund attributes these estimates equally to each regular distribution throughout the year. Consequently, the estimated information as of the specified month-end shown below is for the current distribution, and also represents an updated estimate for all prior months in the year. The Fund may in certain periods distribute more than its income and net realized capital gains, although the Fund currently estimates that it has not done so for the fiscal year-to-date period. In such instances, a portion of the distribution may be a return of capital. A return of capital may occur, for example, when some or all of the money that you invested in the Fund is paid back to you. A return of capital distribution does not necessarily reflect the Fund's investment performance and should not be confused with "yield" or "income."
