RENN FUND, INC. ANNOUNCES RESULTS OF RIGHTS OFFERING
The RENN Fund, Inc. (NYSE MKT: RCG) (the “Fund”) announced today the results of its non-transferable rights offering to shareholders of record, which closed to subscriptions on January 21, 2022. Aggregate gross proceeds to the Fund were approximately $2,106,383.40, the maximum permitted under the terms of the offering. Horizon Kinetics Asset Management LLC (“Horizon”), the investment manager to the Fund, previously agreed to pay for all fees and expenses in connection with the Offering so the total net proceeds to the Fund will be the same.
Shareholders submitted subscriptions for 317% of the permitted subscriptions. As a result, the number of shares sold pursuant to oversubscription privileges to shareholders who exercised their oversubscription privileges was prorated according to the terms described in the offering prospectus. Furthermore, since the offering was over-subscribed, no shares will be purchased in connection with the backstop agreement between Horizon and the Fund. Murray Stahl, the Chief Executive Officer of the Fund, exercised all of his basic rights.
The Fund sold an aggregate of 1,063,830 shares of common stock at a purchase price of $1.98 per share. The shares of common stock are expected to be distributed to participants through the Fund’s transfer agent or through the clearing systems of the Depository Trust Company commencing January 26, 2022. Following this offering, the Fund will have 7,015,785 common shares outstanding.
The rights offering was made pursuant to a prospectus amendment filed December 3, 2021 to its previously filed registration statement on Form N-2 deemed effective by the Securities and Exchange Commission on December 6, 2021.
The Fund is a non-diversified, closed-end management company whose primary investment objective is to provide shareholders with above-market rates of return through capital appreciation and income by investing in a wide variety of financial instruments.
