Delaware Investments® Global Dividend and Income Fund, Inc. Announces Dividends
Today, Delaware Investments Global Dividend and Income Fund, Inc. (the “Fund”), a New York Stock Exchange–listed closed-end fund trading under the symbol “DGF,” declares a monthly dividend of $0.0575 per share. This dividend is payable February 25, 2011, to shareholders of record at the close of business on February 11, 2011. The ex-dividend date will be February 9, 2011.
The Fund is a diversified, closed-end fund. The primary investment objective is to seek high current income; capital appreciation is a secondary objective. The Fund seeks to achieve its objectives by investing, under normal circumstances, at least 50% of its total assets in income-generating equity securities, including dividend-paying common stocks, convertible securities, preferred stocks, and other equity-related securities of U.S. and foreign issuers. Up to 50% of the Fund’s total assets may be invested in nonconvertible debt securities consisting primarily of government and high yield, high risk corporate bonds of U.S. and foreign issuers.
Under normal market conditions, the Fund will invest: (1) at least 50% of its total assets in securities of U.S. issuers; and (2) at least 40% of its assets (including leveraged assets) in securities of non-U.S. issuers, unless market conditions are not deemed favorable by the Manager, in which case the Fund would invest at least 30% of its assets (including leveraged assets) in securities of non-U.S. issuers. The Fund may not, however, invest more than 50% of its total assets in the securities of any developed or emerging markets foreign country.
The Fund utilizes leveraging techniques in an attempt to obtain higher return for the Fund. There is no assurance that the Fund will achieve its investment objectives.
The Fund has implemented a managed distribution policy. Under the policy, the Fund is managed with a goal of generating as much of the distribution as possible from net investment income and short-term capital gains. The balance of the distribution will then come from long-term capital gains to the extent permitted, and if necessary, a return of capital. Even though the Fund may realize current year capital gains, such gains may be offset, in whole or in part, by the Fund’s capital loss carryovers from prior years. For federal income tax purposes, the effect of such capital loss carryovers may be to convert (to the extent of such current year gains) what would otherwise be returns of capital into distributions taxable as ordinary income. This tax effect can occur during times of extended market volatility. The actual determination of the source of the Fund's distributions can be made only at year-end. Shareholders should receive written notification regarding the actual components and tax treatments of all Fund distributions for the calendar year 2011 in early 2012.
