U.S. Global Investors Funds to Pay Year-End Distributions

December 23, 2016

December 23, 2016—U.S. Global Investors, Inc. announces that six of the mutual funds it manages will pay 2016 income dividend or capital gains distributions.

The record date is December 21, 2016, the ex-dividend date is December 22, 2016, and the payable date is December 23, 2016.

Shareholders should be aware that the distributions of dividends and/or capital gains have reduced each fund’s net asset value (NAV) by the amount of the distribution. Market activity may also have impacted a fund’s NAV on the ex-dividend date, so the total change in a fund’s NAV may be more or less than its distribution.

Shareholders with automatic reinvestment receive their distribution in the form of additional shares at the closing prices on December 22, 2016, while others will receive their distribution by check. The distributions do not affect the fund’s total return.

The following is a list of the distributions by fund.

Stock markets can be volatile and share prices can fluctuate in response to sector-related and other risks as described in the fund prospectus.

Foreign and emerging market investing involves special risks such as currency fluctuation and less public disclosure, as well as economic and political risk.

By investing in a specific geographic region, a regional fund’s returns and share price may be more volatile than those of a less concentrated portfolio.

Gold, precious metals, and precious minerals funds may be susceptible to adverse economic, political or regulatory developments due to concentrating in a single theme.
