NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The Board of Trustees of AllianzGI Convertible & Income Fund II (NYSE:NCZ) announced today they have declared a $0.076389 per share initial cash distribution payable on October 1, 2018 to Series A cumulative preferred shareholders of record on September 24, 2018.
The Series A Cumulative Preferred Shares, which trade on the New York Stock Exchange under the symbol NCZ PR A are rated “AAA’ by Fitch Ratings and have an annual dividend rate of $1.375 per share. The 4,360,000 Series A Cumulative Preferred Shares were issued September 11, 2018 at $25.00 per share and will pay distributions quarterly. This initial distribution represents the accrual period from September 11, 2018 through September 30, 2018. The Series A Cumulative Preferred Shares will be callable at any time at the liquidation value of $25.00 per share plus accrued dividends from and after the expiration of a five-year non-call period on September 11, 2023.
The actual composition and character of the distributions stated above and future distributions of the Fund may be materially different from the composition or character of such distributions that existed at the time of this press release and may be comprised of net investment income, capital gains and/or return of capital. Such factors affecting the foregoing include the varied nature of the Fund’s investments and the performance of those investments, and that the ultimate characterization of the Fund’s distribution cannot finally be determined until the end of the Fund’s fiscal year, resulting in the possibility of a return of capital if the Fund makes total distributions in an amount that exceeds its net investment income and net realized capital gains during its fiscal year. Additional information as applicable regarding the composition of the distributions will be made available at us.allianzgi.com/closedendfunds after the payable date. As a result of the foregoing and other factors, no assurance can be given as to the actual composition or character of the Fund’s distribution at the time of this press release and neither the Fund, Allianz Global Investors U.S. LLC (“AllianzGI U.S.”), nor any of its trustees, members, officers or employees assumes responsibility for such statements.
This notice should not be used to prepare tax returns. In January 2019, Form 1099-DIV (or substitute Form 1099-DIV) will be sent to shareholders and will state the aggregate amount and tax characteristics of distributions for the 2018 calendar year.
AllianzGI U.S., an indirect, wholly-owned subsidiary of Allianz Asset Management of America L.P., serves as the Fund’s investment manager and is a member of Munich-based Allianz Group.
