Royce Micro-Cap Trust, Inc. (NYSE-RMT) declares Second Quarter Common Stock Distribution of $0.15 Per Share


NEW YORK, June 1, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Royce Micro-Cap Trust, Inc. (NYSE-RMT) has declared a quarterly distribution of $0.15 per share on its Common Stock.  The distribution, optionally payable in additional shares of Common Stock, or in cash by specific stockholder election, is to be paid on June 25, 2020 to stockholders of record at the close of business on June 11, 2020 (ex-dividend on June 10, 2020).  The price of shares issued for reinvestment will be determined on June 18, 2020.

The Fund has adopted a Distribution Policy of paying quarterly distributions on its Common Stock. Distributions are being made at the annual rate of 7% of the rolling average of the prior four calendar quarter-end net asset values (NAVs), with the fourth quarter distribution being the greater of 1.75% of the rolling average or the minimum distribution required by IRS regulations. The policy, including the annual rate, is subject to change at the discretion of the Fund's Board of Directors.

The Fund estimates that it has distributed more than its income and net realized capital gains; therefore, a portion of your distribution may be a return of capital. A return of capital may occur, for example, when some or all of the money that you invested in the Fund is paid back to you. A return of capital distribution does not necessarily reflect the Fund's investment performance and should not be confused with 'yield' or 'income'.

The Fund's estimated sources of the distribution to be paid on June 25, 2020 and for 2020 year-to-date are as follows:
