Dividend Declaration: Delaware Group Global Dividend and Income Fund, Inc.

Apr 02, 2001, 01:00 ET from Delaware Investments

    PHILADELPHIA, April 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Delaware Group Global Dividend and
 Income Fund, Inc. (NYSE:   DGF) (the "Fund"), a New York Stock Exchange listed
 closed-end fund trading under the symbol "DGF," has declared a monthly
 dividend of 12.5 cents per share.  This dividend is payable April 27, 2001 to
 stockholders of record at the close of business April 13, 2001.  The
 ex-dividend date will be April 11, 2001.
     The Fund is a diversified, closed-end fund whose primary investment
 objective is to seek high current income.  Capital appreciation is a secondary
 objective.  The Fund seeks to achieve its objectives by investing, under
 normal circumstances, at least 50% of its total assets in income generating
 equity securities, including dividend paying common stocks, convertible
 securities, preferred stocks, and other equity related securities of U.S. and
 foreign issuers.  In addition, up to 50% of the Fund's total assets may be
 invested in non-convertible debt securities consisting primarily of government
 and high yield, high risk corporate bonds of U.S. and foreign issuers.
     Under normal market conditions, the Fund will invest at least 50% of its
 total assets in securities of U.S. issuers and at least 20% of its total
 assets in securities of foreign issuers.  There is no assurance that the Fund
 will achieve its investment objectives.
     In 1995, the Fund implemented a managed distribution policy.  Under the
 policy, the Fund is managed with a goal of generating as much of the dividend
 as possible from ordinary income (net investment income and short-term capital
 gains).  The balance of the dividend then comes from long-term capital gains
 and, if necessary, a return of capital.
     Delaware Investments is a diversified asset management organization.  As
 of December 31, 2000, Delaware and its affiliate, Lincoln Investment
 Management, had approximately $82 billion in assets under management.
 Delaware Investments provides investment products and services to individual
 investors through a broad line of mutual funds, retirement plan services and
 other investment products; and to institutional investors, primarily private
 and public pension funds, foundations, endowment funds, banks and insurance
 companies.
