The Mexico Fund, Inc. Declares Distribution

WASHINGTON, DC -- (Marketwired) -- 05/21/14 -- The Mexico Fund, Inc. (NYSE: MXF) announced today that the Board of Directors (Board) declared a distribution of $0.7150 per share to stockholders of record on July 15, 2014, which is payable in cash on July, 24, 2014. This distribution is the second corresponding to the fiscal year 2014.

Under the Fund's Managed Distribution Plan (MDP), the Fund pays quarterly distributions at an annual rate of 10% of the Fund's net asset value (NAV) per share recorded on the last business day of the previous calendar year. The Board has ratified the continuation of the Fund's MDP during fiscal 2014 at the same annual rate of 10%, with distributions to be based on the Fund's NAV per share as of December 31, 2013. The remaining distributions of fiscal 2014 are expected to be made during October 2014 and January 2015. The Board may amend or terminate the MDP at any time without prior notice to stockholders; however, at this time, there are no reasonably foreseeable circumstances that might cause the termination of the MDP. Since the implementation of the MDP in September 2008, the Fund has paid a total of $16.9553 per share in cash distributions to stockholders.

The amount of distributable income for each fiscal period depends on the aggregate gains and losses realized by the Fund during the entire year. Distributions may consist of net investment income, capital gains and return of capital, but the character of these distributions cannot be determined until after the end of the Fund's fiscal year.

However, under the Investment Company Act of 1940, the Fund is required to indicate the source of each distribution to stockholders. The following table sets forth (A) an estimate of the source of the July 2014 distribution and (B) an estimate of the source of distributions for the current fiscal year:
