Delaware Investments® Dividend and Income Fund, Inc. Announces Change to Portfolio Management Team

PHILADELPHIA--()--Today, Delaware Investments Dividend and Income Fund, Inc. (NYSE:DDF) (the "Fund") announced that the members of the portfolio management team will consist of Babak Zenouzi, Damon J. Andres, D. Tysen Nutt Jr., Anthony A. Lombardi, Robert A. Vogel Jr., Nikhil G. Lalvani, Kristen E. Bartholdson, Wayne A. Anglace, Roger A. Early, Paul A. Matlack, Craig C. Dembek, John P. McCarthy, and Christopher M. Testa, effective November 7. Thomas H. Chow will no longer serve as a co-manager of the Fund effective at the close of business on November 7, 2014.

The Fund is a diversified, closed-end fund. The Fund’s primary investment objective is to seek high current income; capital appreciation is a secondary objective. The Fund seeks to achieve its objectives by investing, under normal circumstances, at least 65% of its total assets in income-generating equity securities, including dividend-paying common stocks, convertible securities, preferred stocks, and other equity-related securities. Up to 35% of the Fund’s total assets may be invested in nonconvertible debt securities consisting primarily of high yield, high risk corporate bonds.

The Fund utilizes leveraging techniques in an attempt to obtain higher return for the Fund. There is no assurance that the Fund will achieve its investment objectives.

The Fund has implemented a managed distribution policy. Under the policy, the Fund is managed with a goal of generating as much of the distribution as possible from net investment income and short-term capital gains. The balance of the distribution will then come from long-term capital gains to the extent permitted, and if necessary, a return of capital.
