Principal Real Estate Income Fund


The Principal Real Estate Income Fund (NYSE:PGZ) announces the sources of a distribution paid on February 28, 2019 of $0.11 per share to shareholders of record at the close of business on February 15, 2019, pursuant to the Fund’s managed distribution plan. This press release is issued as required by an exemptive order granted to the Fund by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission and includes the notice below sent to shareholders regarding the source of the distribution.

Statement Pursuant to Section 19(a) of the Investment Company Act of 1940

The following table sets forth the estimated amount of the sources of distribution for purposes of Section 19 of the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended, and the related rules adopted thereunder. In accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), the Fund estimates the following percentages, of the total distribution amount per share, attributable to (i) current and prior fiscal year 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 as a percentage of the total distribution amount. These percentages are disclosed for the current distribution as well as the fiscal year-to-date cumulative distribution amount per share for the Fund.

Current Distribution from:                
Per Share ($) %
Net Investment Income 0.08440 76.70%
Net Realized Short-Term Capital Gain 0.00000 0.00%
Net Realized Long-Term Capital Gain 0.00000 0.00%
Return of Capital or other Capital Source 0.02560 23.30%
Total (per common share) 0.11000 100.00%
Fiscal Year-to-Date Cumulative
Distributions from:
Per Share ($) %
Net Investment Income 0.33610 76.39%
Net Realized Short-Term Capital Gain 0.00000 0.00%
Net Realized Long-Term Capital Gain 0.00000 0.00%
Return of Capital or other Capital Source 0.10390 23.61%
Total (per common share) 0.44000 100.00%

The Fund estimates that it has distributed more than its income; 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 timing and character of distributions for federal income tax purposes are determined in accordance with income tax regulations which may differ from GAAP. As such, all or a portion of this distribution may be reportable as taxable income on your 2019 federal income tax return. The final tax character of any distribution declared in 2019 will be determined in January 2020 and reported to you on IRS Form 1099-DIV.

The amounts and sources of distributions reported in this 19(a) Notice are only estimates and not for tax reporting purposes. The actual amounts and sources of the amounts for 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 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 distribution record date.

Fund Performance & Distribution Information

Fiscal Year to Date (11/01/2018 through 1/31/2019)
Annualized Distribution Rate as a Percentage of NAV^       6.44%
Cumulative Distribution Rate on NAV^       2.15%
Cumulative Total Return on NAV*       7.02%
Average Annual Total Return on NAV for the 5 Year Period Ended 1/31/2019**       10.76%

^ Based on the Funds NAV as of January 31, 2019.

* Cumulative fiscal year-to-date return is based on the change in NAV including distributions paid and assuming reinvestment of these distributions for the period November 1, 2018 through January 31, 2019.

** The 5-year average annual total return is based on change in NAV including distributions paid and assuming reinvestment of these distributions and is through the last business day of the month prior to the month of the current distribution record date.

While the NAV performance may be indicative of the Funds investment performance, it does not measure the value of a shareholders investment in the Fund. The value of a shareholders 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. Past performance does not guarantee future results. Shareholders 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 Plan.

Furthermore, the Board of Trustees reviews the amount of any potential distribution and the income, capital gain or capital available. The Board of Trustees will continue to monitor the Funds distribution level, taking into consideration the Funds net asset value and the financial market environment. The Funds distribution policy is subject to modification by the Board of Trustees at any time. The distribution rate should not be considered the dividend yield or total return on an investment in the Fund.
