NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The Pacholder High Yield Fund, Inc. (NYSE MKT: PHF) declared a dividend of $0.025 per common share payable on May 31, 2017 to shareholders of record on May 26, 2017. The ex-date for the dividend is May 24, 2017.
In conjunction with the impending liquidation of the Fund, the Board of Directors authorized the Fund to decrease the amount of monthly dividend from $0.045 per common share to $0.025 per common share for the May 2017 dividend. Any subsequent distributions between May 31, 2017 and liquidation date shall be considered liquidating distributions. The Fund currently anticipates that the liquidation and dissolution of the Fund will take place on or about July 31, 2017 (absent unforeseen circumstances). Additional details regarding the liquidation, including the day on which the books of the Fund will be closed with respect to shareholders and the date on which the liquidating distribution is expected to occur, will be provided in a future press release.
The distribution is expected to be paid from net investment income (regular interest). Because distribution source estimates are updated throughout the year based on the Fund's performance and forecast for its current fiscal year (which is the calendar year), these estimates may differ from both the tax information reported to you in your 1099 statement, as well as the ultimate economic sources of distributions over the life of your investment.
