General Mutual Fund Distribution Information

  • All mutual funds must distribute earned income and realized capital gains annually to shareholders.
  • Tax treatment is the same whether shareholders receive cash or reinvested shares.
  • A fund's NAV declines by the distribution amount, but the decline is unrelated to performance since shareholders receive the difference in cash or additional shares.
  • Accurately tracking returns requires increasing the number of shares to account for reductions in NAV when distributions occur.
  • Capital gains reflect appreciation over the full period that the Fund held a security. Distributed gains have no relationship to either that year's Fund performance (a Fund could pay a distribution in a flat return year) or an individual's fund investment (all shareholders as of the distribution date receive the payout regardless of their purchase date or price).

Longleaf Distribution Information

  • Longleaf generally pays capital gains distributions in the first half of November and income in late December.
  • Most Longleaf shareholders reinvest their distributions, thereby maintaining account balances while owning more fund shares.
  • Longleaf generally posts capital gain distribution estimates on the website by mid-October.
  • Tax reporting information is mailed with 1099-DIV forms by early February.
  • Longleaf may penalize those who sell fund shares to avoid a distribution since they place a larger tax burden on remaining owners and potentially disrupt the fund's investment strategy.
