The Gabelli Global Utility & Income Trust (Amex:GLU) revised the dates for its monthly cash
distribution of $0.10 per share for December 2006.
The December 2006 distribution of $0.10 per share will now be payable on December 18, 2006
to shareholders of record on December 13, 2006.
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 December 4, 2006, the date of this press release, each of the distributions paid
in 2006 would include approximately 53% from net investment income, 37% from net capital gains,
and 10% from paid-in capital. 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 2006 will be
made after year-end. All shareholders with taxable accounts will receive written notification
regarding the components and tax treatment for all 2006 distributions in early 2007 via
