Nuveen Investments, a leading global provider of investment services to institutions as well as individual investors, today announced the distributions for four Ohio municipal closed-end funds and four Arizona municipal closed-end funds. The shareholders for each of the funds listed below approved the reorganizations of the funds into two, larger state-specific funds. The reorganization is expected to take place after the close of business on Friday, April 5, 2013, effective Monday, April 8, 2013 with the Nuveen Ohio Quality Income Municipal Fund (NYSE: NUO) and Nuveen Arizona Premium Income Municipal Fund (NYSE: NAZ) acquiring the common and preferred assets of their respective state funds. The goal of these reorganizations is to create larger funds with lower operations expenses and increased share trading volume.

Regulations require that the acquired funds fully distribute any accumulated undistributed net investment income (UNII) prior to effecting the reorganization. Consequently, six funds (NXI, NBJ, NVJ, NFZ, NKR and NXE) are declaring distributions which will comply with these regulations, payable May 1, 2013 to fund shareholders of record on April 5, 2013. In addition, the acquiring funds (NUO and NAZ) are declaring distributions payable May 1, 2013 to fund shareholders of record on April 5, 2013. Following the merger, NUO is expected to declare an additional distribution, payable May 1, 2013. The total dollar amount of the combined pre- and post-merger tax-exempt distributions received on May 1, 2012 will be equal to or greater than the shareholder’s prior monthly tax-exempt dividend. The distribution information is detailed in the table above.

Acquired Fund Muni-Term Preferred (MTP) shares will be replaced one for one with newly issued shares of MTP from the acquiring Funds with substantially similar terms. Consequently, the MTP series being replaced are declaring final distributions for the period April 1, 2013 through April 7, 2013, which will be payable May 1, 2013. The new MTP series of the acquiring fund will declare a distribution on the effective date of the merger for the period of April 8, 2013 through April 30, 2013 which, when combined with the distributions listed below will be equal to the shareholders original pre-merger monthly distribution.
