Barings Participation Investors Holds December 2020 Board Meeting

Dec 15, 2020

The Board of Trustees of Barings Participation Investors (the “Trust”) met today. The Trust’s Trustees declared a quarterly dividend of $0.20 per share payable on January 15, 2021 to shareholders of record on December 31, 2020. The Trust declared a dividend of $0.20 per share in each of the three preceding quarters.  The final determination of the source and tax characteristics of these distributions will depend upon the Trust’s investment experience during its fiscal year and will be made after the Trust’s year end and will be reported on IRS Form 1099-Div.

The Trustees also voted to have the Trust retain net long-term capital gains, if any, realized by the Trust in 2020 for future growth and to pay the required federal capital gains tax thereon. If any net long-term capital gains are retained by the Trust, then IRS Form 2439, Notice to Shareholders of Undistributed Long-Term Capital Gains, will be mailed to shareholders by the end of January. The Trust’s 2020 unaudited financial results are expected to be available in late January and an update on the status of the Trust’s net long-term capital gains in 2020 will be provided at that time.
