Cohen & Steers Real Estate Opportunities and Income Fund (RLTY) Announces Share Repurchase Program
NEW YORK, September 6, 2023— Cohen & Steers Real Estate Opportunities and Income Fund (NYSE: RLTY; the “Fund”) announced today that it may begin repurchasing shares under the Fund’s share repurchase program, which authorizes the repurchase of up to 10% of the Fund’s outstanding common shares during a calendar year.
Cohen & Steers believes that the stock repurchase program will benefit shareholders as it enables the Fund to acquire its own shares at a favorable discount. In addition, the share repurchase program may benefit existing shareholders by reducing the discount to net asset value (“NAV”) at which the Fund’s shares are currently trading. The Fund’s portfolio managers intend to prudently manage the leverage levels of the Fund in concert with this activity.
Repurchases are at the Fund management’s discretion and no assurance can be made that the Fund will repurchase any shares or that any such repurchases will reduce the Fund’s discount to NAV. The Fund’s discount will be a determining factor in any decision on future buybacks.
The Fund’s repurchase activity will be disclosed in the Fund’s annual and semi-annual reports to shareholders, as well as monthly press releases, as applicable.
