NEW YORK, Sept. 15, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — The Board of each of Neuberger Berman Municipal Fund Inc. (NYSE American: NBH), Neuberger Berman California Municipal Fund Inc. (NYSE American: NBW), and Neuberger Berman New York Municipal Fund Inc. (NYSE American: NBO) has declared monthly distributions for the dates below. The Funds seek to provide income that is exempt from regular federal income tax. Additionally, Neuberger Berman California Municipal Fund Inc. seeks to provide income that is exempt from California personal income tax and Neuberger Berman New York Municipal Fund Inc. seeks to provide income that is exempt from New York State and New York City personal income tax. Distributions of the Funds may be subject to the federal alternative minimum tax for some stockholders. Each Fund’s distribution announced today is payable on October 16, 2023, has a record date of September 29, 2023 and an ex-date of September 28, 2023.

NBH and NBO will make the distributions described above in the following per share amounts, which are unchanged from the per share amounts for the prior monthly distributions:


Neuberger Berman Municipal Fund Inc.



Neuberger Berman New York Municipal Fund Inc.


With respect to NBW, the Fund is declaring a distribution of $0.07191 per share. This distribution amount per share is higher than the amount paid for the prior monthly distribution that was $0.0254 per share. The distribution declared today by NBW was increased in an effort to distribute the Fund’s accumulated undistributed net investment income (UNII) prior to the closing of the Funds’ previously announced reorganizations, which were approved by stockholders of each Fund.  The reorganizations are currently expected to be completed prior to the Funds’ October 31, 2023 fiscal-year ends. Neither NBH nor NBO currently estimate an accumulated UNII balance.

Important Notice Regarding the Distribution Reinvestment Plans of NBO and NBW

In connection with the previously announced reorganizations, each of NBO and NBW will suspend their distribution reinvestment plans for the distributions announced today for all stockholders of record (i.e., stockholders who hold shares of a Fund directly in an account with the Fund’s transfer agent).  As such, the distributions announced today by the Funds and payable on October 16, 2023, will be paid in cash and not reinvested in additional shares of common stock of each Fund.

In compliance with Section 19 of the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended, a notice would be provided for any distribution that does not consist solely of net investment income. The notice would be for informational purposes and not for tax reporting purposes, and would disclose, among other things, estimated portions of the distribution, if any, consisting of net investment income, capital gains and return of capital. The final determination of the source and tax characteristics of all distributions paid in 2023 will be made after the end of the year.
