PITTSBURGH, Nov. 9, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — Federated Premier Municipal Income Fund (NYSE: FMN) and Federated Premier Intermediate Municipal Income Fund (NYSE: FPT) have declared dividends.  The funds seek to provide investors with current dividend income that is exempt from regular federal income tax.  In addition, these funds feature income exempt from the federal alternative minimum tax (AMT).

The Boards of Trustees of FPT and FMN, upon the recommendation of the funds’ investment advisor, Federated Investment Management Company, previously approved the reorganization of FPT with and into FMN. If approved by shareholders at the joint annual meeting of shareholders on Nov. 14, 2017, the reorganization is expected to occur on Nov. 17, 2017 («reorganization date») and the dividend announced today may be the last dividend paid by FPT. Due to the shareholder meeting and the anticipated approval of the proposed reorganization, the funds have set record dates and, with respect to FPT, a payable date that is earlier than in prior months.

If the reorganization is approved by shareholders, FPT may make an additional distribution of undistributed ordinary income and/or undistributed capital gain net income earned and anticipated to be earned through close of business on the reorganization date if required for tax reasons. The timing and amount of this and any other distributions, if any, are at the discretion of FPT.
