Eagle Growth and Income Opportunities Fund Announces Elimination of $29 Million Reserve and Additional Liquidating Distribution to Shareholders

·3 min read

Fund Will No Longer Use Liquidating Trust

BOSTON, Nov. 17, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Eagle Growth and Income Opportunities Fund (the "Fund") (formerly NYSE: EGIF) today announced an additional liquidating distribution to its shareholders.

The Fund had previously announced that the Fund's Board of Trustees (the "Board") determined that $29 million of the Fund's net assets should be reserved by the Fund and not immediately distributed to the Fund's shareholders (the "Reserve") to provide for certain contingent liabilities of the Fund (the "Contingent Liabilities"), estimated expenses of the Fund and the estimated expenses and potential liabilities of operating a liquidating trust to hold the Reserve. On November 16, 2020, the Board reduced the amount of the Reserve to $0 in light of the elimination of the Contingent Liabilities for which the Reserve was designed to provide. Accordingly, the Fund will no longer transfer the Reserve and the Contingent Liabilities to a liquidating trust.

On or about November 20, 2020, the Fund will distribute $28,157,105, or $4.10 per share, in a cash liquidating distribution to shareholders entitled to such distribution. The Fund has retained a limited amount of cash, as it continues to wind down its operations, in order to satisfy ongoing and estimated payment obligations in order to complete its liquidation and termination process. The Fund also is seeking reimbursement of certain expenses from its insurers and the payment of certain foreign tax reclaims. In the event additional assets are received and to the extent retained assets exceed actual expenses, the Fund will make one or more additional liquidating distributions prior to its termination.

Shareholders may recognize gain or loss for U.S. tax purposes as a result of the liquidation. Gain or loss will generally be measured as the difference between the sum of the cash liquidating distributions and the shareholder's tax basis in the shares of the Fund. The Fund does not provide tax advice and investors should consult their individual tax adviser regarding the tax treatment applicable to a liquidating distribution and any other payments received in connection with the liquidation.
