DYNAMIC CONVERTIBLE AND INCOME FUND (CCD)

CEF Market and Fund Update – May 2017

Calamos CEFs Price and NAV Returns Exceed Relative Index Returns Through May 2017
May, 2017

Our SVP, Director of Closed-End Fund Products Robert F. Bush, Jr. provides an May 2017 update on the closed-end fund market. He discusses how the CEF market continues to offer solutions to challenges of income and diversification, while providing investment opportunities.

OVERVIEW

The fund can invest in convertibles and other fixed income securities with the aim of generating a high level of total return through a combination of capital appreciation and income. To help generate income and attempt to achieve a more favorable reward/risk profile, the fund’s investment team also has the flexibility to sell options.

CCD Fact Sheet A discussion of the Calamos Dynamic Convertible and Income Fund performance, related market commentary, and outlook.

KEY FEATURES

  • Aims to provide consistent monthly income with monthly distributions that are set at levels the investment team believes are sustainable for the long term
  • Leverages more than 30 years of research in convertible security investing
  • Seeks to provide upside participation in equity markets with less exposure to downside than an equity-only portfolio over a full market cycle
  • A term limit provision, a feature not commonly seen in the closed-end fund arena**
  • An investment advisor share purchase program after expiration of the underwriters’ option to purchase additional shares***

** Term limit will allow shareholders to elect collectively whether or not to liquidate the fund on its 15th anniversary in 2030.
*** Under this program, Calamos Advisors LLC and/or its affiliates have committed to purchase up to $20 million worth of common shares of CCD under certain predetermined criteria for a limited period following CCD’s IPO.

PORTFOLIO FIT

With the potential to help manage risk in a portfolio, the fund offers an income-generating allocation that may participate in upside equity movements with limited downside exposure.

WHEN INTEREST RATES RISE, CONVERTIBLES HISTORICALLY PERFORM WELL

In the past 20 years when the 10-year Treasury yield rose more than 100 basis points, convertibles:

  • Outperformed traditional fixed income asset classes
  • Tended to deliver equity-like returns with periods of notable outperformance

Important Fund Information

Current Annualized Distribution Rate is the Fund’s most recent distribution, expressed as an annualized percentage of the Fund’s current market price per share. Estimates are calculated on a tax basis rather than on a generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) basis, but should not be used for tax reporting purposes. Distributions are subject to re-characterization for tax purposes after the end of the fiscal year. This information is not legal or tax advice. Consult a professional regarding your specific legal or tax matters. Under the Fund’s level rate distribution policy, distributions paid to common shareholders may include net investment income, net realized short-term capital gains and return of capital. When the net investment income and net realized short-term capital gains are not sufficient, a portion of the level rate distribution will be a return of capital. In addition, a limited number of distributions per calendar year may include net realized long-term capital gains. Distribution rate may vary.

You can purchase or sell common shares daily. Like any other stock, market price will fluctuate with the market. Upon 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. Shares of closed-end funds frequently trade at a market price that is below their net asset value.

Investments by the Fund in lower-rated securities involve substantial risk of loss and present greater risks than investments in higher rated securities, including less liquidity and increased price sensitivity to changing interest rates and to a deteriorating economic environment. Fixed income securities are subject to interest-rate risk; as interest rates go up, the value of debt securities in the Fund’s portfolio generally will decline. There are certain risks associated with an investment in a convertible bond such as default risk—that the company issuing a convertible security may be unable to repay principal and interest—and interest rate risk—that the convertible may decrease in value if interest rates increase.

Investment Adviser Repurchase Risk. The Adviser will enter into the 10b5-1 Plan on behalf of itself and its affiliates under which Wells Fargo Securities, LLC, as agent for the Adviser, will buy up to $20 million of our common shares in the aggregate during the period beginning after 45 days after the closing of this offering and ending conditions and daily purchase limits. See “Management of the Fund — Related-Party Transactions” in the Fund’s preliminary prospectus for additional details regarding the 10b5-1 Plan. Whether purchases will be made under the 10b5-1 Plan and how much will be purchased at any time is uncertain, dependent on prevailing market prices and trading volumes, all of which we cannot predict. These activities may have the effect of maintaining the market price of our common shares or suppressing a decline in the market price of the common shares, and, as a result, the price of our common shares may be higher than the price that otherwise might exist in the open market. Conversely, any eventual sale of repurchased shares by the Adviser or its affiliates may act as a catalyst for a decline in the Fund’s market price, and therefore the market price of our common shares may be lower than the price that might otherwise exist in the open market.

Limited Term Risk. Unless the Termination Date is amended by shareholders in accordance with the Declaration of Trust, the Fund will be terminated on the 15th anniversary of its effective date, currently expected to be March 26th, 2030. If the Fund’s Board of Trustees believes that under then current market conditions it is in the best interests of the Fund to do so, the Fund may extend the Termination Date for one year, which is anticipated to be March 26th, 2031, without a shareholder vote, upon the affirmative vote of three-quarters of the Trustees then in office. Beginning one year before the Termination Date (the “wind-down period”), the Fund may begin liquidating all or a portion of the Fund’s portfolio. During the wind-down period the Fund may deviate from its investment strategy. As a result, during the wind-down period the Fund’s distributions may decrease, and such distributions may include a return of capital.

Legal Proceedings Risk. Calamos has been named as a defendant in a Section 36(b) complaint captioned Chill v. Calamos Advisors LLC, et al., which was filed in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York on February 11, 2015 (the “Complaint”). The Defendants believe that the Complaint is without merit, and intend to defend themselves vigorously against the allegations. Calamos also believes that the Complaint will not have a material adverse effect on the ability of Calamos to perform its obligations under its investment management agreement with the Fund.

Leverage creates risks which may adversely affect return, including the likelihood of greater volatility of net asset value and market price of common shares; and fluctuations in dividend rates on any preferred shares.

The use of swap transactions involves investments techniques and risks that are different from those associated with portfolio security transactions. If Calamos is incorrect in its forecasts of market values, interest rates, and other applicable factors, the investment performance of the Fund will be less favorable than if those techniques had not been used. Those instruments are typically not traded on exchanges. Accordingly, there is risk that the other party to certain of these instruments will not perform its obligations to the Fund or that the Fund may be unable to enter into offsetting positions to terminate its exposure or liquidate its position under certain of these instruments when it wishes to do so. Such occurrences could result in losses to the Fund.

Shares of closed-end funds frequently trade at a market price that is below their net asset value.

Sectors, Securities, and Countries mentioned are presented to illustrate sectors in which the fund may invest. Portfolio holdings are subject to change daily.

Closed End Fund Distributions

Important Fund Information

Current Annualized Distribution Rate is the Fund’s most recent distribution, expressed as an annualized percentage of the Fund’s current market price per share. Estimates are calculated on a tax basis rather than on a generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) basis, but should not be used for tax reporting purposes. Distributions are subject to re-characterization for tax purposes after the end of the fiscal year. This information is not legal or tax advice. Consult a professional regarding your specific legal or tax matters. Under the Fund’s level rate distribution policy, distributions paid to common shareholders may include net investment income, net realized short-term capital gains and return of capital. When the net investment income and net realized short-term capital gains are not sufficient, a portion of the level rate distribution will be a return of capital. In addition, a limited number of distributions per calendar year may include net realized long-term capital gains. Distribution rate may vary.

You can purchase or sell common shares daily. Like any other stock, market price will fluctuate with the market. Upon 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. Shares of closed-end funds frequently trade at a market price that is below their net asset value.

Investments by the Fund in lower-rated securities involve substantial risk of loss and present greater risks than investments in higher rated securities, including less liquidity and increased price sensitivity to changing interest rates and to a deteriorating economic environment. Fixed income securities are subject to interest-rate risk; as interest rates go up, the value of debt securities in the Fund’s portfolio generally will decline. There are certain risks associated with an investment in a convertible bond such as default risk—that the company issuing a convertible security may be unable to repay principal and interest—and interest rate risk—that the convertible may decrease in value if interest rates increase.

Investment Adviser Repurchase Risk. The Adviser will enter into the 10b5-1 Plan on behalf of itself and its affiliates under which Wells Fargo Securities, LLC, as agent for the Adviser, will buy up to $20 million of our common shares in the aggregate during the period beginning after 45 days after the closing of this offering and ending conditions and daily purchase limits. See “Management of the Fund — Related-Party Transactions” in the Fund’s preliminary prospectus for additional details regarding the 10b5-1 Plan. Whether purchases will be made under the 10b5-1 Plan and how much will be purchased at any time is uncertain, dependent on prevailing market prices and trading volumes, all of which we cannot predict. These activities may have the effect of maintaining the market price of our common shares or suppressing a decline in the market price of the common shares, and, as a result, the price of our common shares may be higher than the price that otherwise might exist in the open market. Conversely, any eventual sale of repurchased shares by the Adviser or its affiliates may act as a catalyst for a decline in the Fund’s market price, and therefore the market price of our common shares may be lower than the price that might otherwise exist in the open market.

Limited Term Risk. Unless the Termination Date is amended by shareholders in accordance with the Declaration of Trust, the Fund will be terminated on the 15th anniversary of its effective date, currently expected to be March 26th, 2030. If the Fund’s Board of Trustees believes that under then current market conditions it is in the best interests of the Fund to do so, the Fund may extend the Termination Date for one year, which is anticipated to be March 26th, 2031, without a shareholder vote, upon the affirmative vote of three-quarters of the Trustees then in office. Beginning one year before the Termination Date (the “wind-down period”), the Fund may begin liquidating all or a portion of the Fund’s portfolio. During the wind-down period the Fund may deviate from its investment strategy. As a result, during the wind-down period the Fund’s distributions may decrease, and such distributions may include a return of capital.

Legal Proceedings Risk. Calamos has been named as a defendant in a Section 36(b) complaint captioned Chill v. Calamos Advisors LLC, et al., which was filed in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York on February 11, 2015 (the “Complaint”). The Defendants believe that the Complaint is without merit, and intend to defend themselves vigorously against the allegations. Calamos also believes that the Complaint will not have a material adverse effect on the ability of Calamos to perform its obligations under its investment management agreement with the Fund.
