Delaware Funds® by Macquarie Municipal Income Funds Announce Intent to Redeem Outstanding Preferred Shares and Offer New Leverage


The Delaware Investments Colorado Municipal Income Fund, Inc. (NYSEAM: VCF), Delaware Investments Minnesota Municipal Income Fund II, Inc. (NYSEAM: VMM) and Delaware Investments National Municipal Income Fund (NYSEAM: VFL) have each filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission a notice of intention to redeem the outstanding Variable Rate MuniFund Term Preferred Shares, Series 2021 (VMTP). The VMTP redemption price will be the $100,000 liquidation preference per share, plus an additional amount representing the final accumulated distribution amounts owed.

The Funds expect to finance the VMTP share redemptions with the proceeds from the issuance of new privately placed Muni-MultiMode Preferred Shares (MMP), which is expected to occur in April 2019. The new Muni-MultiMode Preferred Shares Series 2049 to be issued by each of the Funds will have a 30-year tenor and are expected to provide leverage at attractive borrowing costs relative to the existing VMTP shares outstanding. Redemption of the existing VMTP shares is contingent upon the issuance of the new preferred shares by the Funds, which may not occur as planned. Official notification of the redemption will be delivered to VMTP shareholders at a later date through the Depository Trust Company (DTC).

The anticipated date of redemption of the outstanding VMTP shares are as follows:
