Several Nuveen Municipal Closed-End Funds Declare Distributions

CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Nuveen Investments, a leading global provider of investment services to institutions as well as individual investors, today announced distributions for several Nuveen Michigan state municipal bond closed-end funds.

These distributions follow the recently approved reorganization of the affected Michigan funds below with the reorganizations expected to price after the close of business on Friday, January 4, 2013, and close before the market open on Monday, January 7, 2013. The acquiring fund will assume both the common and preferred assets of the other two funds. The goal of this reorganization is to create a larger state-specific 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) as well as capital gains prior to effecting a reorganization. Consequently, the two acquired funds listed below (NMP and NZW) are declaring distributions, payable February 1, 2013, to fund shareholders of record on January 4, 2013. In addition, the acquiring fund is declaring a distribution payable February 1, 2013, to shareholders of record on January 4, 2013. The distribution information is detailed in the table below.
