RIVERSTONE CREDIT OPPORTUNITIES INCOME PLC

 ("RCOI" or the "Company")

 

Results of the Annual General Meeting ("AGM") and initiation of Managed Wind-Down

 

The Company announces that, at its fifth AGM held at 2.00 pm. (BST) on 22 May 2024, each of the Resolutions were duly passed by a poll vote without amendment, with the exception of Resolutions 11 and 12, which failed to carry.

 

The Company notes in particular that each of Resolutions 15 and 16 were duly passed at the AGM and that, accordingly, the Company has adopted the Wind-Down Investment Policy and entered into Managed Wind-Down, in each case as described in the Notice of AGM dated 24 April 2024 (the "Notice of AGM").

 

The Company notes that each of Resolutions 11 and 12 were proposed on the basis that, were the Company to enter into a Managed Wind-Down at the conclusion of the AGM, the Directors would not use the authority granted to them and would not seek renewal of such authority at subsequent annual general meetings of the Company.

 

The Company also announces that it has entered into an amendment to its senior secured revolving credit facility ("RCF") pursuant to which: (i) the lender has consented to the adoption of the Wind-Down Investment Policy; and (ii) the Company may draw up to US$500,000 in order to optimise cash flows during the Managed Wind-Down.

 

The Company will make further announcements on the progress of the Managed Wind-Down strategy and the return of cash to Shareholders in due course.

 

The details of the results of the poll vote on each resolution proposed at the AGM are as follows:

The authority hereby conferred shall expire at the conclusion of the next annual general meeting of the Company after the passing of this Resolution, or the date which falls 15 months after the date on which this Resolution is passed, whichever is the earlier, save that the Company may, before such expiry, make offers and enter into agreements which would or might require equity securities to be allotted after such expiry and the Directors may allot equity securities in pursuance of such offers or agreements as if the authority conferred had not expired.

Resolution 12

That, subject to the passing of Resolution 10 above, in addition to the authority granted by Resolution 11, but in substitution for all other subsisting authorities to the extent unused, the Directors be and they are hereby authorised, pursuant to section 570 and section 573 Companies Act 2006, to allot equity securities (within the meaning of section 560 Companies Act 2006) for cash either pursuant to the authority conferred by Resolution 10 or by way of a sale of treasury shares, as if section 561(1) Companies Act 2006 did not apply to any such allotment, provided that this authority shall be limited to the allotment of equity securities in connection with an offer of equity securities up to an aggregate nominal amount of US$90,805.24.
