GAMCO Announces over 83% of Shares Eligible for Its Shareholder Designated Charitable Contribution Program

16:05 EDT Monday, August 05, 2013

RYE, N.Y. (Business Wire) -- GAMCO Investors, Inc. (GAMCO) (NYSE: GBL) announced today that at the close of July 31, 2013, the record date to participate in the Shareholder Designated Charitable Contribution program, there were 21,372,630 Class A and Class B shares registered in owner name and eligible to participate in the program.

GAMCO adopted the Shareholder Designated Charitable Contribution program as a means to allow shareholders to designate a charitable contribution of corporate funds, based on their ownership interest, to a charitable organization of their choice. Each such shareholder will be eligible to direct a donation of $0.25 per share to their designated charity.

We will distribute, shortly, a charitable contribution form that must be returned to GAMCO no later than August 31, 2013 for the charitable contribution to be made. Only charities that are recognized 501(c)(3) organizations will be qualified to receive the donation from GAMCO on the shareholder's behalf. A list of eligible charities is available at:

Based on the shares registered on the record date, the total maximum contribution GAMCO could make, should all registered shareholders designate a charity, would be over $5.3 million.

GAMCO Investors, Inc., through its subsidiaries, manages private advisory accounts (GAMCO Asset Management Inc.), mutual funds and closed-end funds (Gabelli Funds, LLC), and partnerships and offshore funds (Gabelli Securities, Inc.). As of March 31, 2013, GAMCO had $40.1 billion in assets under management.
