Boulder Growth & Income Fund

gbafNews28

On April 30, 2019, Boulder Growth & Income Fund, Inc. (NYSE: BIF) (the Fund), a closed-end investment company, will pay a distribution on its common stock of $0.102 per share to stockholders of record at the close of business on April 23, 2019. The Fund, acting in accordance with an exemptive order received from the Securities and Exchange Commission and with approval of its Board of Directors, adopted a managed distribution policy under which the Fund may utilize capital gains, where applicable, as part of regular quarterly cash distributions to its stockholders. This policy gives the Fund greater flexibility to realize capital gains and to distribute those gains to stockholders.

The following table sets forth the estimated amounts of the current distribution and the cumulative distributions paid this fiscal year-to-date from the sources indicated in the table. In addition, the table shows the percentages of the total distribution amount per share attributable to (i) net investment income, (ii) net realized short-term capital gain, (iii) net realized long-term capital gain and (iv) return of capital or other capital source. These percentages are disclosed for the current distribution as well as the fiscal year-to-date cumulative distribution amount per share for the Fund.

Return of Capital or other Capital Source 0.0810 39.88%
Total (per common share) 0.1020 100.00%
 

1 The Funds fiscal year is December 1 to November 30. Information shown is for the period beginning December 1, 2018.

Stockholders should not draw any conclusions about the Funds investment performance from the amount of this distribution or from the terms of the Funds managed distribution policy. The amounts and sources of distributions reported in this 19(a) Notice are only estimates, are likely to change over time, and are not being provided for tax reporting purposes.

The Fund estimates that it has distributed more than its income and net realized capital gains; therefore, a portion of your distribution may be a return of capital. A return of capital may occur for example, when some or all of the money that you invested in the Fund is paid back to you. A return of capital distribution does not necessarily reflect the Funds investment performance and should not be confused with ˜yield or ˜income.

The actual amounts and sources of the amounts for accounting and tax reporting purposes will depend upon the Funds investment experience during the remainder of its fiscal year and may be subject to changes based on tax regulations. The amounts and sources of distributions year-to-date may be subject to additional adjustments.

THE FUND WILL SEND YOU A FORM 1099-DIV FOR THE CALENDAR YEAR THAT WILL TELL YOU HOW TO REPORT THESE DISTRIBUTIONS FOR FEDERAL INCOME TAX PURPOSES.

Presented below are return figures, based on the change in the Funds Net Asset Value per share (NAV), compared to the annualized distribution rate for this current distribution as a percentage of the NAV on the last day of the month prior to the distribution declaration date. While the NAV performance may be indicative of the Funds investment performance, it does not measure the value of a stockholders investment in the Fund. The value of a stockholders investment in the Fund is determined by the Funds market price, which is based on the supply and demand for the Funds shares in the open market.

*** Average Annual Total Return represents the compound average of the Annual NAV Total Returns of the Fund for the five-year period ending March 29, 2019. Annual NAV Total Return is the percentage change in the Funds NAV over a year including distributions paid and assuming reinvestment of these distributions.

The Fund has a managed distribution policy that seeks to deliver the Funds long term total return potential through regular quarterly distributions declared at a fixed rate per share. Distributions may be paid in part or in full from net investment income, realized capital gains and by returning capital, or a combination thereof. Stockholders should note, however, that if the Funds aggregate net investment income and net realized capital gains are less than the amount of the distribution level, the difference will be distributed from the Funds assets and will constitute a return of the stockholders capital. A return of capital is not taxable; rather it reduces a stockholders tax basis in his or her shares of the Fund.

The Funds Board of Directors reviews the amount of any distributions made pursuant to the Funds distribution policy and considers the income earned and capital gains realized by the Fund, as well as the Funds available capital. The Board of Directors will continue to monitor the Funds distribution level, taking into consideration, among other things, the Funds net asset value and market conditions. The Funds distribution policy is subject to modification, suspension or termination by the Board of Directors at any time, which could have an adverse effect on the market price of the Funds shares. The distribution rate should not be considered the dividend yield or total return on an investment in the Fund.
