2017 Estimated Capital Gain and Ordinary Income Distributions
The Meridian Funds are required to make certain distributions of income and gains to shareholders each year to satisfy Internal Revenue Code requirements applicable to mutual funds.
The estimated per share amounts are listed below using income and capital gain amounts as of September 29, 2017. These figures are subject to change, perhaps significantly, and actual distribution amounts will be posted to the Funds’ website shortly after ex-dividend date.
You should not use these figures for computation of federal and/or state income taxes as you will receive an IRS tax form in early 2018 detailing the taxable portions of any distributions paid to you during 2017.
