NexPoint Credit Strategies Fund Announces the Regular Monthly Dividend
DALLAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- NexPoint Credit Strategies Fund (NYS: NHF) ("NHF" or the "Fund") today announced its regular monthly dividend on its common stock. A dividend of $.050 per share will be payable on the last business day of July to shareholders of record at the close of business July 24, 2013. As of June 30, 2013, the Trust had estimated undistributed net investment income of approximately $6.0 million (unaudited).
The Fund is a closed-end fund managed by NexPoint Advisors, L.P. (the "Manager"), an affiliated adviser of Highland Capital Management, L.P. The Fund invests primarily in below investment grade debt and equity and has the ability to hedge risk. The Manager attempts to deliver consistent returns in excess of the DJ Credit Suisse Hedge Fund and the HFRX Global Hedge Fund indices in a transparent, registered fund format with consistent monthly dividends.
Shareholder Loyalty Program
In July 2012, the Manager implemented a unique and creative shareholder loyalty program (the "Program"). The purpose of the Program is to promote shareholder loyalty and the Program is available to all existing shareholders. Existing shareholders that purchase additional shares of NHF through the Program are entitled to a 2% gross-up (the "Gross-up Shares"). The Gross-up Shares are funded by the Manager and are used to purchase shares of NHF to be held in escrow for 12 months. If at the end of the 12 month period the shareholder continues to hold the additional purchased shares, the Gross-up Shares are transferred out of escrow and to the shareholder's brokerage account. Employees of the Manager and affiliates are entitled to a larger gross-up than unaffiliated shareholders. As of May 31, 2013, the Program holds shares valued at $33 million representing approximately 6.5% of the outstanding shares of the Fund.
