CBRE Clarion Global Real Estate Income Fund (NYSE: IGR) Declares Monthly Distribution for August
The Board of Trustees of the CBRE Clarion Global Real Estate Income Fund (NYSE: IGR) (the “Fund”) declared a monthly distribution of $0.045 per share for the month of August 2012. The following dates apply:
IGR’s current distribution rate represents an annualized yield of 6.3% based on the closing market price of $8.54 on August 7, 2012 and a 5.8% yield on a closing NAV of $9.31 as of the same date.
Future earnings of the Fund cannot be guaranteed and the Fund’s dividend policy is subject to change. For more information on the Fund, please visit our website at www.cbreclarion.com.
The Fund’s dividend policy is established by its Board of Trustees. The dividend is set by the Board at regular intervals with consideration of investment income and realized gains expected for the year. Each distribution is expected to be paid from some or all of the following sources: net investment income, realized and unrealized capital gains and, in certain cases, return of capital. The Fund’s distribution rate should not be confused with pure income or yield. The Fund strives to establish a level regular dividend that, over the course of the year, will serve to distribute all income and realized gains, minimizing the need for special distributions.
CBRE Clarion Global Real Estate Income Fund is a closed-end fund, which is traded on the New York Stock Exchange, and invests primarily in real estate securities. Holdings are subject to change. Past performance is no guarantee of future results.
The Fund invests primarily in real estate investment trusts (REITs) and similar companies. When these companies make distributions during the year, they are not required to provide an estimate of the character of those distributions to the Fund. The Fund uses historical information and estimates to generate the estimated character reflected in this notice. Until the Fund receives a final determination from these companies as to the source of distributions – generally around January 31 of the following year – the Fund cannot provide you with a final determination of the source of distributions paid.
For the current fiscal year (January 1, 2012 to August 31, 2012), the Fund has made or declared eight (8) regular monthly distributions totaling $0.36 per share. The source of the distributions declared for the current month and fiscal year to date is estimated as follows:
*Includes PFIC income, as defined below.
SHAREHOLDERS SHOULD NOT USE THE INFORMATION PROVIDED HERE IN PREPARING THEIR TAX RETURNS. SHAREHOLDERS WILL RECEIVE A FORM 1099-DIV FOR THE CALENDAR YEAR INDICATING HOW TO REPORT FUND DISTRIBUTIONS FOR FEDERAL INCOME TAX PURPOSES.
The amounts and sources of distributions reported are only estimates and are not provided for tax reporting purposes. The actual amounts and sources of the amounts for accounting and tax reporting purposes will depend upon the Fund’s investment experience during the remainder of its fiscal year and may be subject to changes based on tax regulations.
The Fund invests in certain companies that have been designated as “passive foreign investment companies” (“PFICs”) for purposes of U.S. tax regulations. Increases in the value of these PFICs (“PFIC Income”) increase the income of the Fund. PFIC Income does not reflect dividends or other income actually received by the Fund, although it does serve to increase the Net Investment Income the Fund is required to distribute. Distributions of PFIC Income may result in a Return of Capital. The amount of Net Investment Income described in the foregoing table (Estimated Source of Distributions) may include PFIC Income. Decreases in the value of these PFICs (“PFIC Losses”) offset the other investment income of the Fund. PFIC Losses do not reflect a diminution in the amount of dividends or income actually received by the Fund, although they do serve to reduce the Net Investment Income the Fund is required to distribute. The amount of Net Investment Income in the foregoing table (Estimated Source of Distributions) may have been reduced by PFIC Losses.
The Fund estimates that it has distributed more than its income and capital gains; therefore, 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 invested in the Fund is paid back. A return of capital distribution does not necessarily reflect the Fund’s investment performance and should not be confused with “yield” or “income”.
Shareholders should not draw any conclusions about the Fund’s investment performance from the amount of this distribution or from the terms of the Fund’s managed distribution policy. Please note that all performance figures below are based on the Fund’s net asset value (“NAV”) and not the market price of the Fund’s shares. Performance figures are not meant to represent individual shareholder performance.The value of a shareholder’s investment in the Fund is determined by the market price of the Fund’s shares.
The Fund’s cumulative year-to-date total return for fiscal year 2012 (January 1, 2012 through July 31, 2012) is set forth below. Shareholders should take note of the relationship between the Year-to-date Cumulative Total Return on NAV and the Fund’s Cumulative Distribution Rate for 2012, as well as its Current Annualized Distribution Rate. Moreover, the Fund’s Average Annual Total Return (in relation to its NAV) for the preceding five-year period (August 1, 2007 through July 31, 2012) is set forth below. Shareholders should take note of the relationship between the Fund’s Average Annual Total Return on NAV for the preceding five-year period and the Fund’s Average Annual Distribution Rate for the preceding five-year period. The performance and distribution rate information disclosed in the table below is based on the Fund’s net asset value (NAV). The Fund’s NAV is calculated as the total market value of all the securities and other assets held by the Fund minus the total liabilities, divided by the total number of common shares outstanding.
