About Distributions

Year-End Distribution Estimates 

Wasatch anticipates posting initial capital gains distribution estimates on this website for the Wasatch Funds prior to December 1, 2018, but in no case prior to the end of the Funds' fiscal year on September 30, 2018.  These estimates will be revised periodically until the final distribution amounts are determined and paid.  The estimates will be updated to include the excise distribution requirements and ordinary income estimates.  The distribution amounts may change substantially due to a variety of issues such as shareholder contributions/withdrawals, recognition of capital gains/losses, equalization and identification of passive foreign investment companies.

What is a mutual fund distribution? 

When a mutual fund realizes profits from capitals gains, dividends, or interest, the IRS requires the fund to distribute these profits to shareholders at least annually. The payment is called a “distribution” to the shareholder.

Wasatch Funds aims to keep annual distributions roughly aligned with the returns for each fund. By doing this, we even out the burden of taxable distributions for our shareholders, and newer shareholders are not burdened with unrealized gains from previous years. This practice also discourages shareholders from “gaming the system,” or selling before distributions are made, and burdening other shareholders with any gains.

What are capital gains and income? 

A mutual fund can realize profits in a few ways. “Capital gain” is when a fund sells its stock holdings for a more than the purchase price.

A “Short Term Capital Gain” reflects profits on investments that were held in the fund for less than a year.

A “Long Term Capital Gain” reflects profits on investments held in the fund for longer than a year. Tax rates are usually lower for long term capital gains than short term gains.

What is the Record Date? 

The Record Date is the date at which Wasatch takes a “snapshot” to see who holds shares in a particular fund before a distribution. You must own shares by the Record Date in order to be eligible to receive a declared dividend or capital gains distribution.

What is the Payment Date? 

The Payment Date or distribution date is the day the fund actually pays the distribution to shareholders.

Why do Wasatch Funds shareholders receive a distribution? 

Mutual funds are required by the IRS to distribute substantially all realized profits to shareholders on at least an annual basis. If a fund has net gains from the sale of securities, or if it earns dividends or interest from securities, the fund must distribute those earning to its shareholders. All distributions are taxable, unless an investor’s shares are held in a tax-deferred or tax-exempt account such as an IRA. Wasatch Funds shareholders have the option to receive their distributions in cash or to automatically reinvest the distribution in the Fund.

How do distributions affect you? 

As a shareholder, you can choose to receive fund distributions in cash, or to have the distributions automatically re-invested in the fund. Whichever you choose, these distributions are taxable, unless your shares are held in a tax-deferred or tax-exempt account like an IRA. For that reason, you will receive a 1099-DIV form at the end of the year for each Wasatch Fund you own. This form indicates the amount of distributions from a fund and should be included in your income tax return.

Performance data quoted represents past performance which is no guarantee of future results. Investment return will vary. An investor's shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than the original cost.

Mutual fund performance changes over time and current performance may be lower or higher than what is stated.

The value of some asset-backed securities may be particularly sensitive to changes in prevailing interest rates, and although the securities are generally supported by some form of government or private guarantee and/or insurance, there is no assurance that private guarantors or insurers will meet their obligations.

An investment in money market funds is neither insured nor guaranteed by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation or any other government agency. Although money market funds seek to preserve the value of your investment at $1.00 per share, it is possible to lose money by investing in these funds.

For an indefinite period of time, the investment adviser is waiving all or part of its fee and in addition, may reimburse the fund for all or part of its expenses. In the absence of temporary expense waivers or reimbursements, total return would have been lower.

The 7-day unsubsidized net yield represents what the yield would have been in the absence of temporary expense waivers or reimbursements. Yields will vary. Yield quotations more closely reflect the current earnings of the fund than the total return quotation. Total returns for periods of less than one year are cumulative.
