DTF Tax-Free Income Inc. Announces the Placement of Remarketable Variable Rate MuniFund Term Preferred Shares and the Redemption of Variable Rate MuniFund Term Preferred Shares

·2 min read

CHICAGO, Nov. 2, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- The Board of Directors of DTF Tax-Free Income Inc. (NYSE: DTF), a closed-end fund advised by Duff & Phelps Investment Management Co., today announced the successful placement of $65 million of Remarketable Variable Rate MuniFund Term Preferred Shares (RVMTPs). The Fund will use the proceeds to conduct an early redemption of $65 million of Variable Rate MuniFund Term Preferred Shares (VMTPs) that were originally scheduled for redemption on January 31, 2021. The VMTPs will be redeemed for 100% of their liquidation preference plus accrued and unpaid dividends, if any, and the shares will be redeemed on November 12, 2020.

The RVMTPs have been privately placed with an institutional shareholder for its own account, and will pay dividends at a variable rate that is set weekly at a spread to the Securities Industry and Financial Markets Association (SIFMA) Municipal Swap Index and will be mandatorily redeemable three years after issuance. The newly issued RVMTPs, like the redeemed VMTPs, will provide leverage for the fund's common shareholders.
