MADISON, WI--(Marketwired - September 23, 2016) - Madison Strategic Sector Premium Fund (NYSE: MSP) (the "Fund") announced a correction to the voting results of its 2016 annual shareholder meeting held on September 8, 2016 that were previously reported on September 13, 2016.
All of the Fund's incumbent trustees standing for election were re-elected, as previously reported.
With respect to the shareholder proposal requesting that the Board of Trustees of the Fund authorize a self-tender offer for all outstanding common shares of the Fund, of the Fund's total outstanding shares as of the record date, 44.618% voted on the shareholder proposal. Of the 44.618% of shares voting, 53.265% (or 23.766% of total outstanding shares) voted in favor of the proposal and 46.735% (or 20.852% of total outstanding shares) voted against or abstained.
