Kayne Anderson MLP Investment Company (the “Company”) (NYSE:KYN) announced today its quarterly distribution of $0.655 per share for the quarter ended November 30, 2014. This distribution represents an increase of 0.8% from the prior quarter’s distribution of $0.65 per share and an increase of 7.4% from the distribution for the quarter ended November 30, 2013. This represents the seventeenth consecutive quarterly increase by the Company.

The distribution will be payable on January 16, 2015 to common stockholders of record on January 7, 2015, with an ex-dividend date of January 5, 2015. The Company estimates that 100% of this distribution will be treated as a return of capital for tax purposes. This estimate is based on the Company’s anticipated earnings and profits for fiscal 2015 and its accumulated earnings and profits as of November 30, 2014. The final determination of the tax character of the distribution will be made in early 2016 when the Company can determine its actual earnings and profits for the full year (including gains and losses on the sale of securities during fiscal 2015) and may differ substantially from this preliminary information.
