Share:

HARTFORD, Conn., March 30, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- The Duff & Phelps Select MLP and Midstream Energy Fund Inc. (NYSE:DSE), a closed-end fund subadvised by Duff & Phelps Investment Management Co., announced today that its Board of Directors has approved fund management's recommendation to seek shareholder approval for the liquidation and dissolution of the fund.

The determination to seek the liquidation and dissolution of the fund was based on an assessment of a variety of factors, including the significant and unprecedented downturn in the MLP and midstream energy sector, in which the fund invests, the current level of assets, as well as a review of potential alternatives. Ultimately it was determined that it was advisable and in the best interest of shareholders to liquidate the fund.

The proposal to liquidate and dissolve the fund, which requires the approval of shareholders, will be submitted for approval at the fund's annual shareholder meeting, scheduled for May 21, 2020. Given the liquidation proposal, the Board decided that the fund should not declare or pay a dividend for the second quarter.
