Delaware Investments® Minnesota Municipal Income Fund II, Inc.


The Fund seeks to provide current income exempt from both regular federal income tax and Minnesota state personal income tax, consistent with the preservation of capital.


The Fund will invest at least 80% of its net assets in investment grade quality Minnesota municipal bonds. The Fund may invest up to 20% of its net assets in municipal bonds that are rated Ba1/BB+ or lower or that are unrated but judged to be of comparable quality by the Fund's investment advisor. Investment in municipal bonds of below investment grade quality involves special risks as compared with investment in higher grade municipal bonds. These risks may include greater sensitivity to a general economic downturn, greater market price volatility and less secondary market trading. Securities rated below investment grade are commonly known as "junk bonds." Such securities are regarded, on balance, as predominantly speculative with respect to the issuer's ability to pay interest and repay principal owed.

Investing in closed-end investment companies involves risk, including the possible loss of principal.

Fixed income securities and bond funds can lose value, and investors can lose principal, as interest rates rise. They also may be affected by economic conditions that hinder an issuer’s ability to make interest and principal payments on its debt.

The Fund may also be subject to prepayment risk, the risk that the principal of a bond that is held by a portfolio will be prepaid prior to maturity, at the time when interest rates are lower than what the bond was paying. A portfolio may then have to reinvest that money at a lower interest rate.

High yielding, non-investment-grade bonds (junk bonds) involve higher risk than investment grade bonds.

Substantially all dividend income derived from tax-free funds is exempt from federal income tax. Some income may be subject to state or local and/or the federal alternative minimum tax (AMT) that applies to certain investors. Capital gains, if any, are taxable.

Funds that invest primarily in one state may be more susceptible to the economic, regulatory, regional, and other factors of that state than geographically diversified funds.

The Fund may experience portfolio turnover that approaches or exceeds 100%, which could result in higher transaction costs and tax liability.

The Fund’s use of leverage may expose common shareholders to additional volatility, and cause the Fund to incur certain costs. In the event that the Fund is unable to meet certain criteria (including, but not limited to, maintaining certain ratings with Fitch Ratings and Moody’s Investor Service, funding dividend payments or funding redemptions), the Fund will pay additional fees with respect to the leverage.

Duration number will change as market conditions change. Therefore, duration should not be solely relied upon to indicate a municipal bond fund’s potential volatility.

Closed-end funds, unlike open-end funds, are not continuously offered. After being issued during a one-time-only public offering, shares of closed-end funds are sold in the open market through a securities exchange. Net asset value (NAV) is calculated by subtracting total liabilities by total assets, then dividing by the number of shares outstanding. At the time of sale, your shares may have a market price that is above or below NAV, and may be worth more or less than your original investment.

The Fund may make distributions of ordinary income and capital gains at calendar year end. Those distributions temporarily cause extraordinarily high yields. There is no assurance that a Fund will repeat that yield in the future. Subsequent monthly distributions that do not include ordinary income or capital gains in the form of dividends will likely be lower.

NAV, market price, and premium or discount will fluctuate with changes in market conditions. At the time of sale, your shares may have a market price that is above or below net asset value, and may be worth more or less than your original investment.

Market Price is the price an investor would pay for shares of a fund on the secondary market. Market price shown is the market closing price as of the previous business day.

Net asset value (NAV) is the total assets less total liabilities divided by the number of shares outstanding.

Premium/Discount is the amount by which the market price trades above or below the NAV.
