DENVER–(BUSINESS WIRE)–RiverNorth Opportunities Fund Inc. (NYSE: RIV) (the “Fund”) is pleased
to announce the results of its transferable rights offering (the
“Offering”), in which 1,790,000 shares of common stock will be issued
pursuant to subscriptions by rights holders through the Offering at a
subscription price of $16.93 per share.
The Offering, which expired on November 1, 2018 (the “Expiration Date”),
was oversubscribed and the over-subscription requests exceeded the
over-subscription shares available. Accordingly, the shares issued as
part of the over-subscription privilege of the Offering will be
allocated pro-rata among record date stockholders who submitted
over-subscription requests based on the number of rights originally
issued to them by the Fund.
The subscription price of $16.93 per share was established by the Fund’s
Board of Directors pursuant to the terms of the Offering based upon a
formula equal to 95% of the reported net asset value per share on the
Expiration Date. The new shares of common stock will be issued on or
about November 9, 2018.
Gross proceeds received by the Fund, before any expenses of the
Offering, are expected to total approximately $30.3 million.
