The Board of Directors of The Gabelli Multimedia Trust Inc. (NYSE:GGT) authorized an increase in
its quarterly cash distribution to $0.15 per share from $0.13 per share, an increase of 15.4%, and
reaffirmed the Fund's 5% Distribution Policy.
The distribution is payable on March 26, 2007 to common stock shareholders of record on March 16, 2007.
Under the Gabelli Multimedia Trust's distribution policy, the Fund pays a minimum annual distribution
of 5% of the average net asset value of the Fund. The Fund's current quarterly distribution level for 2007
was increased to $0.15 per share in each of the first three quarters of the year with an adjusting
distribution in the fourth quarter of an amount sufficient to pay 5% of the average net asset value of the
Fund, as of the last day of the four preceding calendar quarters, or to satisfy the minimum distribution
requirements of the Internal Revenue Code, whichever is greater. Each quarter, the Board of Directors
reviews the amount of any potential distribution and the income, capital gains, or capital available.
A portion of the distribution may be treated as long-term capital gain and qualified dividend income for
individuals, each subject to the maximum Federal income tax rate, which is currently 15% in taxable accounts
for individuals. If the Fund does not generate earnings from dividends, interest, and net realized capital
gains equal to or in excess of the aggregate distributions paid by the Fund for the year, then the amount
distributed in excess of the Fund's investment income and net realized capital gains will be deemed a
non-taxable return of capital.
Long-term capital gains, qualified dividend income, ordinary income, and paid-in capital, if any, will be
allocated on a pro-rata basis to all distributions to common shareholders for the year. As of February 26,
2007, the date of this press release, the current distribution would include 100% from net capital gains.
The estimated components of each distribution are provided to shareholders of record in a notice accompanying
the distribution and are available on our website (www.gabelli.com). The final determination of the sources
of all distributions in 2007 will be made after year-end. All shareholders with taxable accounts will
receive written notification regarding the components and tax treatment for all 2007 distributions in early
2008 via Form 1099-DIV.
