Three Nuveen Municipal Bond Closed-End Funds Complete Preferred Share Issuances

May 20, 2014

CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Nuveen Investments, a leading global provider of investment services to institutions as well as individual investors, today announced that three funds have issued Variable Rate MuniFund Term Preferred Shares (VMTP) through private placements with qualified institutional buyers, as defined pursuant to Rule 144A under the Securities Act of 1933 (the Securities Act). The proceeds of the preferred issuances for the funds will be used to redeem all of each fund’s outstanding MuniFund Term Preferred (MTP) shares as previously announced.

New VMTP issuance details are as follows:

Fund & Common Share Symbol       Shares       VMTP Issuance Amount ($mm)       Term Redemption Date
Nuveen Georgia Dividend Advantage Municipal Fund 2(NKG)       750       $75.00       June 1, 2017
Nuveen Maryland Premium Income Municipal Fund(NMY)       1,670       $167.00       June 1, 2017
Nuveen Pennsylvania Investment Quality Municipal Fund(NQP)       480       $48.00       June 1, 2017


VMTP dividends will be set weekly at a spread to the Securities Industry and Financial Markets Association Municipal Swap Index (SIFMA). VMTP shares are preferred securities that are senior, with priority in all respects, to the fund’s common shares in liquidation and as to payments of dividends. The VMTP shares issued by NQP are equal in priority to its outstanding Variable Rate Demand Preferred (VRDP) shares, which will remain outstanding.

The proceeds of the completed VMTP issuances will be deposited in trust with an affiliate of Computershare Inc., the Redemption and Paying Agent for the MTP shares. This deposit will be held for the benefit of MTP shareholders. MTP shares will be redeemed on May 30, 2014. Official notification of the redemption will be delivered to MTP shareholders through The Depository Trust Company (DTC). Upon redemption of the MTP shares, the funds intend to deregister and delist the MTP shares from the New York Stock Exchange.

No VMTP shares have been registered under the Securities Act or any state securities laws. Unless so registered, no VMTP shares may be offered or sold in the United States except pursuant to an exemption from the registration requirements of the Securities Act and applicable state securities laws. This press release is neither an offer to sell nor a solicitation of an offer to buy any of these securities.
