    Franklin Limited Duration Income Trust Announces Sources of Monthly Dividend Distribution

    The Franklin Limited Duration Income Trust [NYSE:FTF] (CUSIP 35472T101) has declared a dividend of $0.0870 per common share payable May 15, 2019, to shareholders of record as of April 30, 2019.  It is currently estimated that $0.0461 per share represents net investment income and $0.0409 per share represents return of principal. The Fund adopted a managed distribution plan and will make monthly distributions to common shareholders at an annual minimum fixed rate of 10 percent, based on the average monthly net asset value (NAV) of the Fund’s common shares. The plan is intended to provide shareholders with a constant, but not guaranteed, fixed minimum rate of distribution each month and is intended to narrow the discount between the market price and the NAV of the Fund’s common shares, but there is no assurance that the plan will be successful in doing so.
