Neuberger Berman Investment Advisers LLC
NEW YORK, June 17, 2021 — Neuberger Berman Next Generation Connectivity Fund Inc. (NYSE: NBXG) (the “Fund”), a newly organized closed-end fund, announced today the declaration of its initial monthly distribution of $0.10 per share of common stock. The monthly distribution amount represents a 6.0% distribution rate relative to the Fund’s initial public offering price of $20.00 per share. The distribution announced today is payable on July 30, 2021, has a record date of July 15, 2021 and has an ex-date of July 14, 2021.
Under its level distribution policy, the Fund anticipates that it will make regular monthly distributions, subject to market conditions, of $0.10 per share of common stock, unless further action is taken to determine another amount. The Fund’s ability to maintain its current distribution rate will depend on a number of factors, including the amount and stability of income received from its investments, availability of capital gains, and the level of other Fund fees and expenses. There is no assurance that the Fund will always be able to pay a distribution of any particular amount or that a distribution will consist of only net investment income.
Due to an effort to maintain a stable distribution amount, the distribution announced today, as well as future distributions, may consist of net investment income, realized capital gains and return of capital. 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 2021 will be made after the end of the year.
