CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nuveen Investments, a leading global provider of investment services to institutions as well as individual investors, today announced that three municipal bond closed-end funds have filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission a notice of intention to redeem all of the outstanding MuniFund Term Preferred (MTP) shares for each of the funds. The redemption price will be the $10.00 liquidation value per MTP share, plus an additional amount representing the final accumulated distribution amounts owed. Each fund expects to finance the MTP share redemptions with the proceeds of newly issued Variable Rate Demand Preferred (VRDP) shares and the redemptions are contingent upon the completion of all aspects of VRDP share placement, which may not occur as planned. Official notification of the redemption will be delivered to MTP shareholders at a later date through the Depository Trust Company (DTC). The anticipated redemption date is September 9, 2013.
The funds filing the notice are as follows:
