HOUSTON, Aug. 22, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Center Coast MLP & Infrastructure Fund (NYSE: CEN) (the "Fund") announced today that it has declined to participate in the amended private placement offering by American Midstream Partners, LP (NYSE: AMID).  Previously, CEN had agreed to purchase 465,100 units of AMID as part of a $200.0 million private placement offering to institutional investors.  AMID intended to use the net proceeds from the offering to fund the announced acquisition of assets from an affiliate of DCP Midstream, LLC (the "Acquisition") and for general partnership purposes.  Subsequently, the Acquisition terms were modified and AMID funded the Acquisition with borrowings on its revolving credit facility.  As a result of the modification of the Acquisition, the Partnership amended the common unit purchase agreement to change the common units to be sold in the private placement from $200 million to approximately $120 million.  CEN did not participate in the amended private placement offering.

About the Center Coast MLP & Infrastructure Fund (NYSE: CEN)

The Fund is a non-diversified closed-end management investment company. The Fund's investment objective is to provide a high level of total return with an emphasis on distributions to shareholders. The "total return" sought by the Fund includes appreciation in the net asset value of the Fund's common shares and all distributions made by the Fund to its common shareholders, regardless of the tax characterization of such distributions, including distributions characterized as return of capital. The Fund seeks to achieve its investment objective by investing primarily in a portfolio of master limited partnerships ("MLPs") and energy infrastructure companies. Under normal market conditions, the Fund will invest at least 80% of its managed assets in securities of MLPs and energy infrastructure companies. The Fund may invest up to 20% of its managed assets in unregistered or restricted securities, including securities issued by private companies.  The Fund utilizes leverage as part of its investment strategy. There is no assurance that the Fund will achieve its investment objective.  

The Fund anticipates that, due to the tax characterization of cash distributions made by MLPs, a portion of the Fund's distributions to shareholders will consist of tax-advantaged return of capital for U.S. federal income tax purposes. In general, a portion of the distribution will constitute a return of capital to shareholders, rather than a dividend, to the extent such distribution exceeds the Fund's current and accumulated earnings and profits. The portion of any distribution treated as a return of capital will not be subject to tax currently, but will result in a corresponding reduction in a shareholder's basis in Fund shares and in the shareholder's recognizing more gain or less loss (that is, will result in an increase of a shareholder's tax liability) when the shareholder later sells Fund shares. Distributions in excess of a shareholders' adjusted tax basis in its shares are generally treated as capital gains.  The Fund's distribution rate will vary based upon the distributions received from underlying investments. The Fund can make no assurance as to what percentage of the distributions paid on the shares will consist of tax-deferred return of capital.
