NEW YORK, Nov 12, 2010 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Today Neuberger Berman California Intermediate Municipal Fund Inc. (NYSEAmex: NBW), Neuberger Berman High Yield Strategies Fund Inc. (NYSEAmex: NHS), Neuberger Berman Intermediate Municipal Fund Inc. (NYSEAmex: NBH), Neuberger Berman New York Intermediate Municipal Fund Inc. (NYSEAmex: NBO) and Neuberger Berman Real Estate Securities Income Fund Inc. (NYSEAmex: NRO) (each, a "Fund" and collectively, the "Funds") each announced the results of its respective measurement period under each Fund's previously announced tender offer program (each, a "tender offer program").
The terms of each tender offer program provide that should a Fund's common stock trade at an average daily discount to net asset value per share ("NAV") of greater than 10% during a 12-week measurement period, the Fund would conduct a tender offer for between 5% and 20% of its outstanding common stock at a price equal to 98% of its NAV determined on the day the tender offer expires.
For the 12-week measurement period ended November 10, 2010 (the "Measurement Period"), each of NHS, NBH, NBO and NBW traded at an average daily discount to NAV of less than 10% and therefore in accordance with each Fund's respective tender offer program will not conduct a tender offer. NRO, however, traded at an average daily discount to NAV of greater than 10% for the Measurement Period and therefore will conduct a tender offer in accordance with the terms of its tender offer program. NRO traded at an average daily discount to NAV of 10.30% for the Measurement Period.
The size and timing of NRO's tender offer will be announced as soon as practicable. Additional terms and conditions of NRO's tender offer will be set forth in its offering materials, which will be distributed to its common stockholders. Should the number of shares of common stock tendered and not withdrawn exceed the maximum size of NRO's offer, it will purchase stock from tendering common stockholders on a pro rata basis. Accordingly, common stockholders cannot be assured that NRO will purchase all of their tendered common stock.
This announcement is not a recommendation, an offer to purchase or a solicitation of an offer to sell stock of any Fund. NRO has not yet commenced the tender offer described in this release. Any tender offer will be made only by an offer to purchase, a related letter of transmittal and other documents which will be filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission as exhibits to a tender offer statement on Schedule TO and will be available free of charge at the SEC's website at http://www.sec.gov. Common stockholders should read the offer to purchase and tender offer statement on Schedule TO and related exhibits when those documents are filed and become available, as they will contain important information about the tender offer. NRO will also make available without charge an offer to purchase and letter of transmittal.
