Tortoise Energy Infrastructure Total Return Fund (TORIX/TORTX/TORCX) announces quarterly distribution increase


OVERLAND PARK, KS – February 27, 2024 – Tortoise Energy Infrastructure Total Return Fund (TORIX) announced a quarterly distribution of $0.1980 per share, which is a notable increase quarter-over-quarter.

Within the energy infrastructure sector, the trend of free cash flow increasingly directed towards share buybacks and improved current yield has continued. As a result, we are passing along the value from higher distribution growth to our shareholders.

We now have greater conviction in potential 5-7% sector growth over the medium-term. “Based on longer-dated guidance and disciplined capital return policies, energy infrastructure management teams are increasingly confident in the outlook for the next several years, not just the year ahead,” said Brian Kessens, Senior Portfolio Manager, Managing Director.

Tortoise believes it can return dividends and distributions to shareholders in the form of a quarterly payout going forward. The fund continues to invest for total return.

Distribution Date and Amounts

Tortoise Energy Infrastructure Total Return Fund paid the following distributions on February 22, 2024, to shareholders of record on February 21, 2024.
