NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec 14, 2018--Nuveen Michigan Quality Municipal Income Fund (NYSE:NUM), Nuveen Arizona Quality Municipal Income Fund (NYSE:NAZ), Nuveen Georgia Quality Municipal Income Fund (NYSE: NKG) and Nuveen Connecticut Quality Municipal Income Fund (NYSE: NTC) have each completed an issuance of Adjustable Rate MuniFund Term Preferred Shares (AMTP Shares) in a privately negotiated exchange and private placement with one or more qualified institutional buyers, as defined in Rule 144A under the Securities Act of 1933. The Funds and their corresponding amounts of newly issued AMTP shares are as follows:

Through the transactions, NUM has issued 1,730 Series 2028 AMTP Shares in exchange for 1,730 Series 2019 Variable Rate MuniFund Term Preferred Shares, with a liquidation preference of $100,000 per share (VMTP Shares); NAZ has issued 883 Series 2028 AMTP Shares in exchange for 883 Series 2019 VMTP Shares; NKG has issued 585 Series 2028 AMTP Shares in exchange for 585 Series 2019 VMTP Shares and NTC has issued 1,120 Series 2028 AMTP Shares in exchange for 1,120 Series 2019 VMTP Shares.

The dividend rate for the AMTP shares of each Fund will be set periodically based on a predetermined formula, subject to adjustment of the terms from time to time by agreement of each Fund and the AMTP shareholders. The AMTP Shares are preferred securities of each Fund and are senior, with priority in all respects, to each Fund’s common shares in liquidation and as to payments of dividends.
