Western Asset Inflation-Linked Income Fund (WIA or “the Fund”; CUSIP: 95766Q106) Announces Notification of Sources of Distributions
NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec 30, 2022--
Western Asset Inflation-Linked Income Fund [NYSE: WIA]
Notification of Sources of Distributions
Pursuant to Section 19(a) of the Investment Company Act of 1940
The Fund’s estimated sources of the distribution to be paid on December 30, 2022, and for the fiscal year 2022 year-to-date are as follows:
Estimated Allocations for December Monthly Distribution as of November 30, 2022:
Long-Term Capital Gains
Return of Capital
Cumulative Estimated Allocations fiscal year-to-date as of November 30, 2022, for the fiscal year ending November 30, 2022:
Return of Capital
Shareholders should not draw any conclusions about the Fund’s investment performance from the amount of the current distribution or from the terms of the Plan. WIA estimates that it has distributed more than its income and net realized capital gains; therefore, a portion of the WIA distribution to shareholders may be a return of capital. A return of capital may occur, for example, when some or all of the money that a shareholder invested in a Fund is paid back to them. A return of capital distribution does not necessarily reflect WIA’s investment performance and should not be confused with ‘yield’ or ‘income’. The amounts and sources of distributions reported herein are only estimates and are not being provided for tax reporting purposes. The actual amounts and sources of the amounts for tax reporting purposes will depend upon the Fund’s investment experience during the remainder of its fiscal year and may be subject to changes based on tax regulations. The Fund will send a Form 1099-DIV to shareholders for the calendar year that will describe how to report the Fund’s distributions for federal income tax purposes.
Average Annual Total Return (in relation to the change in net asset value (NAV) for the 5-year period ended on 11/30/2022) 1
Annualized Distribution Rate (as a percentage of NAV as of 11/30/2022) 2
Cumulative Total Return (in relation to the change in NAV for the fiscal period through 11/30/2022) 3
Cumulative Fiscal Year-To-Date Distribution Rate (as a percentage of NAV as of 11/30/2022) 4
Fund Performance and Distribution Rate Information:
This Fund has a managed distribution policy that seeks to deliver the Fund’s long-term total return potential through regular monthly distributions declared at a fixed rate per common share. Distributions may be paid in part or in full from net investment income, realized capital gains and by returning capital, or a combination thereof. Shareholders should note, however, that if a Fund’s aggregate net investment income and net realized capital gains are less than the amount of the distribution level, the difference will be distributed from the Fund’s assets and will constitute a return of the shareholder’s capital. A return of capital is not taxable; rather it reduces a shareholder’s tax basis in his or her shares of the Fund. The Board of Directors of the Fund may terminate or suspend the managed distribution policy at any time, which could have an adverse effect on the market price of the Fund’s shares.
