GREENWOOD VILLAGE, Colo.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- The Versus Capital Multi-Manager Real Estate Income Fund (VCMRX & VCMIX) (the Fund), a continuously offered, closed-end interval fund, paid a quarterly distribution on its common stock on October 12, 2012, to shareholders of record at the close of business on October 10th, 2012.

Each share class intends to make regular quarterly distributions based on the past and projected performance of the Fund. The amount of quarterly distributions may vary, depending on a number of factors. As portfolio and market conditions change, the rate of distributions on shares may change. There can be no assurance that a Fund will be able to declare a distribution in each period. Past performance is no guarantee of future results.
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 there under. 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. The amounts and sources of distributions reported in this 19(a) Notice are only estimates and not for tax reporting purposes.
Current Distribution from:
|Per F-Share||%||Per I-Share||%|
|Net Investment Income||$ 0.223||75.34%||$ 0.257||77.88%|
|Net Realized Short-Term Capital Gain||0.000||0.00%||0.000||0.00%|

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 and Distribution Information
|Annualized Distribution Rate as Percentage of NAV1||4.72%||5.26%|
|Total Return for the Quarter||2.12%||N/A2|
1Based on the Funds NAV as of September 30, 2012. Each investor’s actual return will vary depending on the date and purchase price of their investment.
2 The inception of the I-Share class was July 12th 2012, the return since inception based on the Fund NAV through September 30th 2012 is 2.73%.
The registration statement for F-Shares became effective on December 11, 2011, but the Fund’s cash was not invested until share subscriptions were sufficient to commence active investment. As a consequence, the F-Shares maintained a constant NAV of $25.00 per share until July 1, 2012, at which time the NAV began to float. I-Shares commenced operations on July 12, 2012.
The Fund is a continuously-offered, closed-end investment company, registered under the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended. The Fund does not intend to list its Shares on any securities exchange during the offering period, and the Fund does not expect a secondary market in the Shares to develop. As a result of the foregoing, an investment in the Fund's Shares is not suitable for investors that require liquidity, other than liquidity provided through the Fund's repurchase policy. You should not expect to be able to sell your Shares other than through the Fund's repurchase policy, regardless of how the Fund performs. There is no guarantee that shareholders will be able to sell all of their tendered shares during a quarterly repurchase offer.
The Shares do not have an upfront or backend sales charge/load, however, the F-Shares pay a distribution fee. Additionally, a shareholder who tenders F-Shares for repurchase is subject to an Early Withdrawal Charge of 2%. Like all mutual funds, the Fund has ongoing operating expenses. As a consequence of its multi-manager structure, an investor in the Fund will bear not only his or her proportionate share of expenses of the Fund itself but also indirectly the expenses associated with using underlying investment funds and underlying sub-advisers.
CAREFULLY CONSIDER THE FUND'S INVESTMENT OBJECTIVES, RISKS, CHARGES, AND EXPENSES BEFORE INVESTING. YOU CAN OBTAIN THE PROSPECTUS AND SUMMARY PROSPECTUS WITH THIS AND OTHER INFORMATION ABOUT THE FUND FROM THE SUB-DISTRIBUTOR OR FROM THE VERSUS CAPITAL WEB SITE (versuscapital.com). READ THEM CAREFULLY BEFORE INVESTING. AN INVESTMENT IN THE FUND IS SUBJECT TO A HIGH DEGREE OF RISK. THESE RISKS INCLUDE, BUT ARE NOT LIMITED TO, THOSE OUTLINED BELOW.
The Fund is a newly formed entity with no significant operating history upon which prospective investors may evaluate the Fund's potential performance. There is the risk that the amount of capital raised by the Fund may be insufficient to achieve profitability and meet its investment objectives. Real estate is subject to special risks, among which are tenant default, environmental problems, and adverse changes in local economic conditions. The yield from an underlying investment fund could be significantly reduced if it fails to qualify as a REIT (real estate investment trust) for tax purposes. The Fund's investments also may be negatively affected by the broad investment environment. Although the Fund is intended to provide a means by which investors can diversify their portfolios into real estate, the Fund itself is "non-diversified" under the Investment Company Act of 1940 since changes in the market value of a single holding may cause a greater fluctuation in the Fund's net asset value than in a "diversified" fund. The Fund is not intended to be a complete investment program. Investors are reminded that portfolio diversification does not ensure a profit or guarantee against a loss.
A multi-manager strategy involves certain risks. For example, the success of the Fund depends in large part upon the ability of the Adviser to choose successful Investment Managers. It is possible that some Investment Managers may take similar market positions, thereby interfering with the Fund's investment goal. The Fund and underlying Investment Managers may borrow as an investment strategy. The Fund intends to limit borrowing to one third of its gross asset value. While borrowing presents opportunities to increase the Fund's total return, it potentially increases the losses as well. Under certain circumstances, the Fund's distribution policy could result in a return of capital, potentially causing the Fund's expense ratio to increase. The Adviser, Sub-Adviser, and Investment Mangers manage portfolios for themselves and for clients other than the Fund. A conflict between the interests of the Fund and the interests of these other parties may arise in certain situations which potentially could disadvantage the Fund. For example, a suitable but limited investment opportunity might be allocated to another client rather than to the Fund.
Shares of the Fund are distributed by Foreside Funds Distributors LLC, Berwyn, Pennsylvania, not affiliated with Versus Capital Advisors LLC.
