Shareholders in the Reserve Yield Plus Fund
have to wait longer still to get the last bits of their money out. Fourteen months after the collapse of Lehman Brothers
sunk the Reserve Primary Fund
, the board of Yield Plus has decided to hang on to the remaining $85.5 million in the fund, "given the uncertainties related to pending claims and other fund expenses."
Daisy Maxey first reported
on the board's decision.

"The Board has decided not to make additional distributions at this time, but expects to revisit these considerations in the near future," reads a November 12 statement
(pdf) from Reserve.
According to the board, Reserve has already distributed more than $1 billion (more than 90 percent) of Yield Plus' assets to its shareholders.
