Nuveen Investments, a leading global provider of investment services to institutions as well as individual investors, today announced that the contingent 10-year term provisions for the Nuveen Build America Bond Fund (NYSE:NBB) and the Nuveen Build America Bond Opportunity Fund (NYSE:NBD) went into effect as of December 31, 2012. In connection with its initial public offering, each fund adopted a fundamental policy to convert from a perpetual to a 10-year defined term if there were no new issuance of Build America Bonds or other similar U.S. Treasury-subsidized taxable municipal bonds for any continuous 24-month period ending on or prior to December 31, 2014. When the Build America Bond (BAB) program was not renewed at the end of 2010, the implementation of the contingent termination provisions was anticipated, as described in the funds’ shareholder reports during 2011 and 2012.
The defined terms for NBB and NBD end June 30, 2020 and December 31, 2020, respectively. The funds’ Board has the option of extending the termination date for up to six months beyond the June and December, 2020 dates, without shareholder approval. In addition, the funds can be terminated at any time by action of the funds’ Board or shareholders prior to the June and December, 2020 dates. Upon termination, the funds will liquidate their non-cash assets and make pro rata cash distributions to shareholders.
Nuveen Asset Management, the funds’ portfolio sub-adviser, believes that active management of the funds’ investment strategy will remain strong. Despite the nonrenewal of the BABS program, the portfolio management team sees continued opportunity to seek to achieve the funds’ primary objective of offering current income through investments in taxable municipal securities, as well as their secondary objective of seeking enhanced portfolio value and total return, through active management and strong credit research.
