NEW YORK (Business Wire) -- The Board of Directors of Lazard Global Total Return and Income Fund, Inc. (the “Fund”) (NYSE:LGI) has authorized the Fund to declare today, pursuant to a level distribution policy, a monthly distribution of $0.09073 per share on the Fund's outstanding common stock. The distribution is payable on June 21, 2013 to shareholders of record on June 12, 2013. The ex-dividend date is June 10, 2013.
