*The Distribution Rate calculation is based on the most current dividend rate per share of annualized and divided by the market price of $. The fixed monthly amount distributed per share is subject to change at the discretion of the Fund’s Board of Trustees. Sources of distributions to shareholders may include net investment income, net realized short-term capital gains, net realized long-term capital gains and return of capital. Based on current estimates, we anticipate the current distribution has been paid from a return of capital. 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. If a distribution includes anything other than net investment income, the fund provides a Section 19(a) notice of the best estimate of its distribution sources at that time, available at Reaves Utility Income Fund. These estimates may not match the final tax characterization (for the full year’s distributions) contained in shareholders’ 1099-DIV forms after the end of the year. Distribution payments are not guaranteed and dividend rates can vary.
