Share:

ClearBridge American Energy MLP Fund Inc. (NYSE:CBA) announces its
portfolio composition as of June 30, 2018.

Investment Objective: The Fund seeks to provide a high level of
total return, with an equal emphasis on current distributions and
capital appreciation.

Investment Strategy: The Fund seeks to achieve its objective by
investing primarily in US-based master limited partnerships ("MLPs") in
the energy sector. Initially, the Fund intends to focus its investments
on MLPs that, in the Fund's opinion, are poised to benefit from the
growing production and usage of natural gas, while minimizing exposure
to commodity price fluctuations. Energy entities are engaged in the
business of exploring, developing, producing, gathering, transporting,
processing, storing, refining, distributing, mining or marketing natural
gas, natural gas liquids (including propane), crude oil, refined
petroleum products or coal.

*   Portfolio holdings and weightings are historical and are presented
here for informational purposes only. They are subject to change at
any time.
** The difference between total assets and net assets, if any, is due
primarily to the Fund's use of borrowings and other liabilities; net
assets do not include borrowings. The Fund may employ leverage in
the form of loans, preferred stock, reverse repurchase agreements
and/or other instruments. When the Fund engages in transactions that
have a leveraging effect on the Fund's portfolio, the value of the
Fund will be more volatile and all other risks will tend to be
compounded.
