Boulder Growth and Income Fund, Inc. (BIF) (the “Fund”) announced the results of a special stockholder meeting (the “Meeting”) that occurred on July 17, 2018, at which stockholders voted to approve a new investment advisory agreement between the Fund and ALPS Advisors, Inc. (“ALPS”), and a new investment sub-advisory agreement between ALPS and Rocky Mountain Advisers, LLC (“RMA”), with respect to the Fund. Each of the agreements became effective following the Meeting. Until that point, ALPS and RMA had been serving as the Fund’s interim adviser and sub-adviser, respectively, since June 1, 2018.
The new investment advisory and sub-advisory agreements were presented to stockholders as part of a new servicing structure approved by the Fund’s Board of Directors (the “Board”) on May 10, 2018, which also included a new administration agreement for the Fund with ALPS Fund Services, Inc. (“AFS”), an affiliate of ALPS (collectively, the “New Servicing Structure”). The New Servicing Structure was approved by the Board with the intent of reducing the Fund's overall expenses and fees through the provision of an integrated set of high-quality advisory and administrative services under ALPS’ unified platform, while ensuring that the Fund continues to receive RMA’s high quality portfolio management services it has previously received. The Board estimates that the New Servicing Structure will provide stockholders with aggregate savings of approximately 0.13% of its total assets annually.
