NEW YORK, Dec. 6, 2010 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Cohen & Steers announced today that its U.S. registered open-end funds will make year-end ordinary income distributions on December 16, 2010 to shareholders of record as of December 15, 2010, with an ex-dividend date of December 16, 2010.

As announced on November 1, 2010, none of the Cohen & Steers' U.S.-registered open-end funds anticipate making capital gain distributions in 2010.

The projections below represent estimates and are subject to change based on portfolio, market and shareholder activity, and tax adjustments. Actual ordinary income distributions will appear on shareholders' 1099-DIV forms, which will be mailed in early 2011.  It is anticipated that a substantial portion of these distributions will be characterized as ordinary income for tax reporting purposes.

Shareholders should also remember that the net asset value of a fund with an ordinary income distribution will decline on the ex-dividend date to reflect the adjusted net asset value of the fund after the distribution. This is in addition to any effect the market's performance had on the securities within the fund's portfolio on that day.
