Two Nuveen Closed-End Funds Announce Intention to Redeem Preferred Shares


Nuveen, today announced that two municipal bond closed-end funds have filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission notices of intention to redeem all of their respective outstanding Institutional MuniFund Term Preferred (iMTP) shares. The iMTP redemption price will be the $5,000 liquidation preference per share, plus an additional amount representing the final accumulated distribution amounts owed. Each fund expects to finance the iMTP share redemptions with the proceeds of newly issued preferred shares and the redemptions are contingent upon the completion of all aspects of such preferred share placements by each Fund, which may not occur as planned. Official notification of the redemptions will be delivered to iMTP shareholders of each Fund at a later date through The Depository Trust Company (DTC).

The funds filing the notices and the anticipated dates of redemption of their outstanding iMTP shares are as follows:

Fund & Common Share Symbol     Share Amount     iMTP CUSIP     Anticipated Redemption Date
Nuveen Municipal Credit Income Fund (NZF) 30,000 67070X804 May 25, 2017
Nuveen New York AMT-Free Quality Municipal Income Fund (NRK) 15,800 670656883 May 22, 2017

The address of the calculation and paying agent, The Bank of New York Mellon, is 101 Barclay Street, Floor 7E, New York, New York 10286.

The funds intend to offer the new preferred shares to qualified institutional buyers (as defined in Rule 144A of the Securities Act of 1933 (the Securities Act)) in private offerings exempt from registration under the Securities Act.

No preferred shares, including iMTP shares, have been registered under the Securities Act or any state securities laws. Unless so registered, no preferred shares may be offered or sold in the United States except pursuant to an exemption from the registration requirements of the Securities Act and applicable state securities laws. This press release is neither an offer to sell nor a solicitation of an offer to buy any securities.
