Historical distributions are listed on each Fund's indivudal pages. Click a Fund's name above to view historical distribution information.

Regulations regarding distributions can be complex, and there are several methods for managing your tax liability. Please consult a tax advisor about your particular circumstances. You also may obtain helpful information by calling the Internal Revenue Service at 1-800-829-1040 or visiting www.irs.gov.

The amounts in this chart do not reflect amounts for qualified dividends. However, those amounts, if applicable, will appear on Form 1099-DIV sent in late January. For more information on tax documentation, please visit Tax Documentation.

Amana and Sextant Funds pay per-share distributions to shareowners invested in a fund on the Record Date. On the Payable Date, each fund's share price is reduced by the amount of its distribution.

Dividend income estimates for funds that declare distributions daily are not listed, although they may pay distributions. In addition, some funds in the chart may show no estimated distributions at this time. However, please keep in mind that this may change.

Further Information About Distributions

What are distributions?

Distributions can be two different types: income and capital gains. Mutual fund companies must pass along at least 98% of their net investment income and 98.2% of their capital gains to their shareowners.

A fund pays income distributions if the securities in the fund's portfolio pay dividends or interest to the fund.

A fund pays capital gain distributions if the sale of securities within the fund creates a profit. Such profits, or gains, can be designated as short-term or long-term depending on how long the fund held the securities in its portfolio, and not on when you purchased fund shares.

Why are some distributions larger than others?

The amount of a distribution can increase when the dividend payments or profits increase. A fund's capital gain distribution, however, is not necessarily a reflection of its overall performance. Because regulations regarding distributions are complex, you may want to consult a tax advisor about your circumstances.

If distributions are paid to you by funds you own, the amount(s) paid will be shown on your fourth quarter statement. Taxable accounts holding taxable funds will also receieve IRS Form 1099-DIV, sent in late January. For more information on tax documentation, please visit Tax Documentation.

Why do funds pay distributions?

Tax rules require mutual funds to distribute at least 98% of net investment income and at least 98.2% of capital gains to shareowners each year. The rules also allow mutual funds to offset capital gains with losses carried forward from a prior year.
