Dear Shareholder:

 

VOTE NOW

 

The special meeting of shareholders of the Macquarie/First Trust Global Infrastructure/Utilities Dividend & Income Fund (MFD) (the “Fund”) was adjourned to March 7, 2024, in order to allow shareholders more time to vote. You are being asked to consider an important proposal regarding the proposed reorganization of the Fund with and into abrdn Global Infrastructure Income Fund (ASGI) (the “Reorganization”).

Please help your Fund and vote today, no matter how many shares you own. 

 

  Vote FOR the Reorganization on the WHITE proxy card and help your Fund obtain the needed approval to consummate the Reorganization.

 

  The Fund’s Board of Trustees (the “Board”) recommends that you vote FOR the Proposal on the WHITE proxy card.  

 

  Institutional Shareholder Services (“ISS”), the leading independent proxy advisory firm, has recommended that shareholders vote FOR the approval of the Reorganization on the Fund’s WHITE proxy card.

 

  Prevent Saba Capital Management L.P. (“Saba”), an activist hedge fund investor, from derailing the Reorganization to further its own self-interested agenda.

 

  DISCARD the GOLD proxy card you may receive from Saba.

 

 

 

If you already signed a gold proxy card, you have the right as a shareholder of the Fund to change your vote before the Special Meeting takes place. You can do this by completing the WHITE proxy card sent to you by your Fund, which will replace the gold proxy card you previously completed.

 

If your Fund does not obtain enough votes, the Reorganization cannot be consummated. Please vote using one of the following options:

1.VOTE ONLINE

Log on to the website shown on the WHITE proxy card. Please have the WHITE proxy card in hand to access your control number and follow the on-screen instructions.

2.VOTE BY MAIL

 

Complete, sign, date and return the WHITE proxy card.

 

If you have any questions, please contact the Fund’s proxy solicitor, EQ Fund Solutions LLC, at (877) 864-5057 weekdays from 9:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. Eastern Time.

YOUR VOTE IS VERY IMPORTANT!

 

DO NOT DELAY! VOTE THE WHITE PROXY CARD NOW!

 

Thank you for your continued support.

Sincerely,

Macquarie/First Trust Global Infrastructure/Utilities Dividend & Income Fund

_/s/ James A. Bowen
