Duff & Phelps Utility and Infrastructure Fund Inc. (NYSE: DPG), a closed-end fund advised by Duff & Phelps Investment Management Co., today announced that on July 14, 2023 it will redeem 200,000 (the “Called Shares”) of its 1,600,000 issued and outstanding Floating Rate Mandatory Redeemable Preferred Shares, Series C (the “Series C MRP Shares”) (CUSIP No. 26433C4#9).

This partial redemption is being made at this time at the Fund’s voluntary option and as part of what the Fund’s investment adviser believes is prudent management of the Fund’s use of leverage. The partial redemption of the Series C MRP Shares is being funded by cash on hand.

The Called Shares will be redeemed pro rata from the holders of the Series C MRP Shares in proportion to the number of Series C MRP Shares held by such holders. The redemption price per share, which will be paid to holders of the Called Shares who surrender their Called Shares to the Paying Agent (as identified in the notice sent to holders of the Series C MRP Shares) on or prior to the redemption date, will be the liquidation preference of $25.00 plus accumulated but unpaid dividends and distributions up to, but excluding, the redemption date.
