May 07, 2021 at 15:00 PM EDT
The Board of Trustees of the CBRE Clarion Global Real Estate Income Fund (NYSE: IGR) (the “Fund”) has declared a monthly distribution of $0.05 per share for the month of May 2021. The following dates apply:
IGR’s current annualized distribution rate is 7.4% based on the closing market price of $8.06 on May 5, 2021, and 6.7% based on a closing NAV of $8.94 as of the same date.
Future earnings of the Fund cannot be guaranteed, and the Fund’s distribution policy is subject to change. For more information on the Fund, please visit www.cbreclarion.com.
The Fund’s monthly distribution is set by its Board of Trustees. The Board reviews the Fund’s distribution on a quarterly basis in view of its net investment income, realized and unrealized gains, and other net unrealized appreciation or income expected during the remainder of the year. The Fund strives to establish a level monthly distribution that, over the course of the year, will serve to distribute an amount closely approximating the Fund’s net investment income and net realized capital gains during the year.
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.
For the current fiscal year (January 1, 2021 to May 31, 2021), the Fund has made or declared five (5) regular monthly distributions totaling $0.25 per share. The source of the distribution declared for the current month and fiscal year to date is estimated as follows:
The allocations reported in this notice are only estimates and are not provided for tax reporting purposes. The actual allocations will depend on the Fund’s investment experience during the remainder of its fiscal year and will not be finalized until after year-end. In addition, the allocations reported to shareholders for tax reporting purposes will also reflect adjustments required under applicable tax regulations. Some of these tax adjustments are significant, and amounts reported to you for tax reporting may be substantially different than those presented in this notice. SHAREHOLDERS WILL BE SENT A FORM 1099-DIV FOR THE CALENDAR YEAR INDICATING HOW TO REPORT FUND DISTRIBUTIONS FOR FEDERAL INCOME TAX PURPOSES.
The estimated allocations presented above are based on the Fund’s monthly calculation of its year-to-date net investment income, capital gains and returns of capital. The Fund’s investment income is mainly comprised of distributions received from the real estate investment trusts (REITs) and other companies in which it invests. “Net investment income” refers to the Fund’s investment income offset by its expenditures, which include the fees paid to the investment adviser and other service providers. “Net realized capital gains” represents the aggregation of the capital gains and losses realized by the Fund from its purchase and sale of investment securities during the year-to-date period. Short-term capital gains are those arising from the sale of securities held by the Fund for less than one year. Long-term capital gains are those arising from the sale of securities held by the Fund for a year or more. The amount of net realized capital gains is also offset by capital losses realized in prior years. Adjustments to net investment income are made based on the character of distributions received by the Fund. A portion of the distributions the Fund receives from REITs will be characterized by the REITs as capital gains or returns of capital. Because REITs often reclassify the distributions they make, the Fund does not know the ultimate character of these distributions at the time they are received, so the Fund estimates the character based on historical information. The Fund’s net investment income is reduced by the amounts characterized by the REITs as capital gains and returns of capital. Amounts characterized by the REITs as capital gains are added to the Fund’s net realized capital gains. Amounts characterized by the REITs as return of capital are classified as such by the Fund.
The Fund estimates that it has distributed more than its net investment income and net realized capital gains; therefore, a portion of your distribution may be a return of capital. A return of capital may occur, for example, when some or all of the money that you invested in the Fund is paid back to you. 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. 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 value of its liabilities. 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 Total Return for fiscal year 2021 (January 1, 2021 through April 30, 2021) is set forth below. Shareholders should take note of the relationship between the Cumulative Total Return and the Fund’s Cumulative Distribution Rate for 2021, as well as its Current Annualized Distribution Rate. Moreover, the Fund’s Average Annual Total Return for the preceding five-year period (May 1, 2016 through April 30, 2021) is set forth below.
