CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nuveen Investments, a leading global provider of investment services to institutions as well as individual investors, today announced the dates of the previously announced tender offers for each of the closed-end funds listed below.
Nuveen Dividend Advantage Municipal Fund 3 (NYSE MKT: NZF)
Nuveen Dividend Advantage Municipal Income Fund (NYSE MKT: NVG)
Nuveen Municipal Advantage Fund, Inc. (NYSE: NMA)
Nuveen Quality Income Municipal Fund, Inc. (NYSE: NQU)
As previously announced, each fund will purchase up to 10 percent of its outstanding common shares for cash at a price per share equal to 98 percent of the net asset value per share determined on the date the tender offer expires. Each fund currently expects its tender offer to commence on August 18, 2014 and expire on September 19, 2014, unless extended.
Additional terms and conditions of the tender offer will be set forth in each fund’s offering materials, which are expected to be distributed to common shareholders on or about August 18, 2014. If more than 10 percent of its outstanding common shares are tendered, and not withdrawn, a fund will purchase shares from tendering shareholders on a pro rata basis. Accordingly, shareholders cannot be assured that a fund will purchase all of their tendered common shares.
In addition, to mitigate the tender offer’s impact on each fund’s effective leverage ratio and asset coverage level, each fund’s Board has approved the concurrent partial redemption of certain preferred shares, subject to the completion of the tender offers. Further information regarding the redemptions will be included in future filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and accompanied by a public press release.
This announcement is not a recommendation, an offer to purchase or a solicitation of an offer to sell shares of any of the funds. The funds have not yet commenced the tender offers described in this release. Any tender offer will be made only by an offer to purchase, a related letter of transmittal and other documents that will be filed with the SEC as exhibits to a tender offer statement on Schedule TO and will be available free of charge at the SEC’s website at www.sec.gov. Common shareholders should read the offer to purchase and tender offer statement on Schedule TO and related exhibits when those documents are filed and become available as they will contain important information about the tender offer. The funds will also make available, without charge, the offer to purchase and the letter of transmittal.
