DENVER, Nov. 14, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- 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 January 2020. 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 November 7, 2019, the distribution amounts to approximately 3.54% of market price and 3.00% 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 January 2020 quarterly distribution will be payable in cash to stockholders of record per the following critical dates:
Amount Per Share
January 31, 2020
January 22, 2020
January 21, 2020
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.
