U.S. Global Investors Funds to Pay Year-End Distributions
SAN ANTONIO—December 23, 2014—U.S. Global Investors, Inc. (Nasdaq: GROW), a boutique registered investment advisory firm specializing in natural resources, emerging markets, domestic equities and municipal bonds, announces that three of the mutual funds it manages will pay 2014 income dividend or capital gains distributions.
The record date was December 22, 2014, and the ex-dividend and payable date is December 23, 2014.
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 will receive their distribution in the form of additional shares at the closing prices on December 23, 2014, 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.
|Fund||Income dividend per share||Short-term capital gains per share||Long-term capital gains per share||Total per share|
|All American Equity Fund (GBTFX)||$0.0000||$1.1888||$3.8294||$5.0182|
|Holmes Macro Trends Fund (MEGAX)||$0.0000||$0.3631||$2.0040||$2.3671|
|Emerging Europe Fund (EUROX)||$0.2137||$0.0000||$0.0000||$0.2137|
Fund distributions are not directly correlated with short-term fund performance. This information is not intended as tax advice. Investors should consult a tax advisor with questions regarding their individual tax liability.

All opinions expressed and data provided are subject to change without notice. Some of these opinions may not be appropriate to every investor. There is no guarantee that the funds will declare dividends in the future or that, if declared, will remain at current levels or increase over time.
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. The Emerging Europe Fund invests more than 25% of its investments in companies principally engaged in the oil & gas or banking industries. The risk of concentrating investments in this group of industries will make the fund more susceptible to risk in these industries than funds which do not concentrate their investments in an industry and may make the fund’s performance more volatile.
