DENVER–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Boulder Growth & Income Fund, Inc. (NYSE:BIF) (the “Fund”) announced the
declaration of the Fund’s quarterly distribution of $0.102 per share to
occur in April 2019. This distribution is being paid as part of BIF’s
managed distribution program under which BIF will make per share
distributions of $0.102 per quarter, or approximately $0.408 per year.
As of market close on February 11, 2019, the distribution amounts to
approximately 3.85% of market price and 3.22% of net asset value (“NAV”)
on an annualized basis.
Due to the current discount of the Fund’s market price to its per share
NAV, and the fact that distributions are made in cash (i.e., at NAV), if
Fund shares continue to trade at a discount at the time of this
distribution, then it will be accretive to BIF’s market-price-based
return. The April 2019 quarterly distribution will be payable in cash to
stockholders of record per the following critical dates:
|Pay Date||Record Date||Ex-Dividend Date||Amount Per Share|
|April 30, 2019||April 23, 2019||April 22, 2019||$0.102|
As previously announced, the Board of Directors instituted a managed
distribution program in accordance with its Section 19(b) exemptive
order in November 2015. In adopting the program, the Fund seeks to
provide a regular quarterly distribution to its common stockholders
which is not dependent on the amount of income earned or capital gains
realized by the Fund.
Investors should not make any conclusions about the Fund’s investment
performance from the amount of the Fund’s distributions or the Fund’s
distribution policy. With each distribution that does not consist solely
of net investment income, the Fund will issue a notice to shareholders
and an accompanying press release that will provide detailed information
regarding the amount and composition of the distribution and other
related information. The amounts and sources of distributions reported
in the notice to shareholders are only estimates and are not being
provided for tax reporting purposes. The actual amounts and sources of
the amounts for tax reporting purposes will depend upon the Fund’s
investment experience during its full fiscal year and may be subject to
changes based on tax regulations. The Fund will send shareholders a Form
1099-DIV for the calendar year that will tell them how to report these
distributions for federal income tax purposes.
