BOSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb 5, 2019--Amundi Pioneer Asset Management today announced the declaration of dividends for five Pioneer closed-end funds for February.

*PHT’s February per share distribution of $0.0675 represents a 3.8% increase from the $0.0650 per share distribution paid in January. The increase was due primarily to widening spreads in the high yield bond market last year, which allowed the Fund to replace maturing and callable securities with new securities with higher yields, increasing the Fund’s income. This change better aligns the Fund’s distribution rates with its current and projected level of earnings and reserves.

**MAV’s February per share distribution of $0.0425 represents a 19% decrease from the $0.0525 per share distribution paid in January. The decrease was due primarily to reduced yields in the high-yield portion of the municipal bond market. The Fund’s maturing and callable securities were often replaced with new securities with lower yields, reducing the Fund’s income. This change better aligns the Fund’s distribution rate with its current and projected level of earnings and reserves.

The closing market price and NAV are based on data as of February 4, 2019. The Market Price Distribution Rate is calculated by dividing the latest declared monthly distribution per share (annualized) by the market price. The NAV Distribution Rate is calculated by dividing the latest declared monthly distribution per share (annualized) by the NAV per share.

All funds are closed-end investment companies. PHD, PHT, MHI and MAV trade on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE). HNW trades on the NYSEAMER.

Amundi Pioneer Asset Management, Inc. is each fund’s investment adviser. On July 3, 2017, the name of the adviser was changed from Pioneer Investment Management, Inc., coinciding with its acquisition by Amundi. As a result of the transaction, Amundi Pioneer Asset Management, Inc. became an indirect wholly owned subsidiary of Amundi. Amundi, one of the world’s largest asset managers, is headquartered in Paris, France.

Keep in mind, distribution rates are not guaranteed. A fund’s distribution rate may be affected by numerous factors, including changes in actual or projected investment income, the level of undistributed net investment income, if any, and other factors. Shareholders should not draw any conclusions about a fund’s investment performance based on a fund’s current distributions. Closed-end funds, unlike open-end funds, are not continuously offered. Once issued, common shares of closed-end funds are bought and sold in the open market through a stock exchange and frequently trade at prices lower than their net asset value. Net Asset Value (NAV) is total assets less total liabilities divided by the number of common shares outstanding.
