Tortoise Capital Resources Corp. Announces Distribution Increase

Nov 8, 2011


LEAWOOD, Kan.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- The Board of Directors of Tortoise Capital Resources Corp. (NYSE: TTO) today declared the company's fourth quarter 2011 distribution of $0.11 per share, an increase of $0.01 from the prior quarter. The increase is due to improvements in the performance of TTO's private holdings. The distribution is payable on Nov. 30, 2011, to stockholders of record on Nov. 22, 2011.

As previously stated, TTO expects to earn distributable cash flow (DCF) to support an annualized distribution of not less than $0.40 per share, with upside potential to that rate depending on the performance of its private equity investments. TTO believes this guidance provides the basis for its stockholders to have confidence in the sustainability of its distribution at this level.

A portion of this distribution is expected to be treated as return of capital for income tax purposes, although the final characterization will not be made until determination of our earnings and profits after year end. For book purposes, the source of this distribution is estimated to consist of 10-15 percent ordinary income and the remainder as return of capital.

The company's objective is for each new real asset acquisition and lease agreement to provide stockholders with an attractive risk-adjusted total return, with an emphasis on distributions and distribution growth. The company believes that upon REIT qualification, its risk and return characteristics can be compared favorably to utilities and other REITs.
