Principal Real Estate Income Fund Declares Monthly Distributions of $0.135 Per Share

DENVER--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Principal Real Estate Income Fund (the "Fund"), which is traded on the New York Stock Exchange under the symbol "PGZ," announced the declaration of the Fund's first three regular monthly distributions of $0.135 per common share, payable on the dates noted below. Based on the Fund's Initial Offering Price of $20.00 and current share price of $20.00 (as of close on July 26, 2013), the distributions represent an annualized distribution rate of 8.10%.

"We are very pleased with the progress of investing the Fund's assets so far. The weakness in the fixed income markets has provided an attractive buying opportunity and this has allowed us to exceed our original distribution expectations," said Marc Peterson of Principal Real Estate Investors, LLC and lead Portfolio Manager of the Fund.

The following dates apply to the distributions declared:

This press release is not for tax reporting purposes but is being provided to announce the amount of the Fund's distributions. In early 2014, after definitive information is available, the Fund will send shareholders a Form 1099-DIV, if applicable, specifying how the distributions paid by the Fund during the prior calendar year should be characterized for purposes of reporting the distributions on a shareholder's tax return (e.g., ordinary income, long-term capital gain or return of capital). An investment in the Fund is not appropriate for all investors and is not intended to be a complete investment program. The Fund is designed as a long-term investment and not as a trading vehicle.

Investing in the Fund involves risks, including the risk that you may receive little or no return on your investment or that you may lose part or even all of your investment and exposure to below-investment grade investments (i.e., "junk bonds"). The Fund's net asset value will vary and its distribution rate may vary and both may be affected by numerous factors, including changes in the market spread over a specified benchmark, market interest rates and performance of the broader equity markets. Fluctuations in net asset value may be magnified as a result of the Fund's use of leverage. Therefore, before investing you should carefully consider the risks that you assume when you invest in the Fund's common shares.

The Fund's investment objectives and policies are not designed to seek to return the initial investment to investors that purchase shares.

Investors should consider the Fund's investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses carefully before investing. The prospectus contains this and other information about the fund. For more complete information about the Fund or to obtain a copy of the prospectus, call your financial professional, visit the Fund's site atwww.principalcef.comor call 855.838.9485. Please read the prospectuscarefully before investing.

Because the Fund is newly organized, its Common Shares have a limited history of public trading. Shares of closed-end investment companies frequently trade at a discount from their net asset value and initial offering prices. The risks associated with this characteristic of closed-end investment companies may be greater for investors expecting to sell their shares in a relatively short period after completion of the initial public offering.
