Tax Character of Distributions

Our distributions are treated as a taxable dividend (qualified dividends) to our common stockholders to the extent of our current and accumulated earnings and profits. If the distribution exceeds our current or accumulated earnings and profits, the distribution will be treated as a return of capital to our common stockholders to the extent of each stockholder’s basis in our common stock, and then the amount of a distribution in excess of such stockholder’s basis would be taxed as capital gain. Because the cash distributions received from the MLPs in our portfolio are expected to exceed the earnings and profits associated with owning such MLPs, a portion of our distributions may be paid from sources other than our current and accumulated earnings and profits. Common stockholders will receive a Form 1099-DIV from us, sample forms for each year can be found within the Tax Information section of this page.

The table below summarizes the tax character of our distributions for the past ten years.

Information on Tax Character of Distributions

KYN uses leverage in the form of unsecured notes, preferred stock, and revolving bank facilities to acquire portfolio investments consistent with its investment objective and strategies. We currently utilize leverage in an amount that represents approximately 20% to 25% of the fund’s total assets, but the amount of leverage we utilize can vary based on market conditions.

Performance data quoted represent past performance as of the stated date herein. Past performance is not a guarantee of future results. Current performance may be lower or higher than that shown based on market fluctuations from the end of the reported period. Closed-end funds, unlike open-end funds, are not continuously offered. After the initial public offering, shares are sold on the open market through a stock exchange. As with any other stock, total return and market value will fluctuate so that an investment, when sold, may be worth more or less than its original cost. Shares of closed-end funds frequently trade at a market price that is below their net asset value.

All investments involve risk, including possible loss of principal. An investment in the fund could suffer loss. The fund’s concentration of investments in the energy and infrastructure industries subjects it to greater risk and volatility than a diversified fund. Risks include, but are not limited to, those associated with energy infrastructure companies, midstream companies, renewable infrastructure companies, including the risks of declines in energy and commodity prices, decreases in energy demand, adverse weather conditions, natural or other disasters, changes in government regulation,  and changes in tax laws. Leverage creates risks that may adversely affect return, including the likelihood of greater volatility of net asset value and market price of common shares and fluctuations in dividend rates on any preferred shares, and increases a shareholder’s risk of loss. Before investing in the fund, you should consider the investment objective, risks, charges, and expenses of the fund, which, together with other important information, are included in the fund’s most recent prospectus and other filings with the SEC available here or at There can be no assurance that the fund’s investment objective will be attained.
