PHILADELPHIA, Jan. 31, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Aberdeen Greater China Fund, Inc. (the "Fund") (NYSE: GCH), a closed-end equity fund, announced today that it paid a distribution of $1.3369 per share on January 31, 2014 to all shareholders of record at the close of business on December 20, 2013. This distribution is comprised entirely of long-terms capital gains.

As previously announced, the distribution was payable in shares of the Fund's common stock.  However, stockholders had the option to request that their distributions be paid in cash in lieu of common stock. The aggregate amount of cash distributions to all stockholders was limited to 20% of the aggregate dollar amount of the total distribution.  Because cash distribution requests exceeded this limit, the cash distribution was pro-rated among all stockholders who made such requests.  Stockholders who requested cash distributions received $0.54 per share or 40.17% of the distribution in cash and received the balance in the Fund's common stock.  For purposes of computing the stock portion of the dividend, the common stock distributed was valued at $9.91 per share, which equaled the average closing price of the Fund's common shares on the NYSE on January 23, 2014 and the two preceding trading days.

Under U.S. tax rules applicable to the Fund, the amount and character of distributable income for each fiscal year can be finally determined only as of the end of the Fund's fiscal year. However, under Section 19 of the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended (the "1940 Act") and related Rules, the Fund may be required to indicate to shareholders the source of certain distributions to shareholders.

The following table sets forth the estimated amounts of the sources of the distribution for purposes of Section 19 of the 1940 Act and the Rules adopted thereunder. The table has been computed based on generally accepted accounting principles.   The table includes estimated amounts and percentages for this distribution and for the cumulative distributions paid relating to fiscal year to date (01/01/2013 – 12/31/2013) from the following sources: net investment income; net realized short-term capital gains; net realized long-term capital gains; and return of capital.

Closed-end funds are traded on the secondary market through one of the stock exchanges. The investment return and principal value will fluctuate so that an investor's shares may be worth more or less than the original cost. Shares of closed-end funds may trade above (a premium) or below (a discount) the net asset value (NAV) of the fund's portfolio. There is no assurance that a fund will achieve its investment objective. Past performance does not guarantee future results.  Investing in Funds involves risk, including loss of principle.
