NEW YORK, Nov. 9, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- AllianceBernstein National Municipal Income Fund, Inc. ("ANMIF" -NYSE: AFB) (the "Fund") announced today that it commenced a voluntary tender offer to purchase up to 100% of its outstanding auction preferred shares ("APS") at a price per share equal to 98.75% of the liquidation preference of $25,000 per share (or $24,687.50 per share), plus any unpaid dividends accrued through the expiration date of the tender offer. The Fund's tender offer will expire on December 13, 2018, at 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time (or such later date to which the tender offer is extended). If the offer is extended beyond December 13, 2018, another press release will be issued to provide notification of the extension. Additional terms and conditions of the Fund's tender offer are set forth in the Fund's tender offer materials, which have been filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") and will be distributed to APS holders.
The Fund's tender offer will be conditioned upon the successful private placement of new preferred shares proposed to be issued by the Fund and certain other conditions as will be set forth in the Fund's offer to purchase and related letter of transmittal. The Fund's new preferred shares, if successfully placed, will allow the Fund to replace the leverage currently obtained through tendered APS with new preferred shares. The investment adviser and the Board of Directors of the Fund believe the tender offer and proposed issuance of preferred shares by the Fund is in the best interests of the Fund and its stockholders.
Any questions about the tender offer can be directed to Georgeson, LLC, the Fund's information agent for its tender offer, at toll free (800) 932-9864.
