ATLANTA, Sept. 3, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Invesco Advisers, Inc., a subsidiary of Invesco Ltd. (NYSE: IVZ), announced today additional details of the previously announced tender offer and reorganization for Invesco Dynamic Credit Opportunities Fund (NYSE: VTA) (the «Fund»).
At the Fund’s Annual Meeting of Shareholders held on September 3, 2021, Fund shareholders approved a proposal to reorganize the Fund into a newly created closed-end interval fund (the «Interval Fund»). The reorganization had previously been approved by the Fund’s Board of Trustees (the «Board»).
The Interval Fund will offer four classes of shares (Class A, Class AX, Class R and Class Y) and will provide liquidity to shareholders in the form of quarterly repurchase offers. Fund shareholders will receive Class AX shares of the Interval Fund priced daily at the Interval Fund’s net asset value («NAV»). The Interval Fund will be managed with the same investment objective and similar investment strategy as the Fund, all as described in the proxy statement/prospectus, which has been filed publicly. Shareholders should read the proxy/statement prospectus as it contains important information about the reorganization and the Interval Fund.
It is anticipated that the closing of the reorganization will occur on or around October 2021 subject to the satisfaction of applicable regulatory requirements and customary closing conditions.
The Fund will conduct a tender offer for cash of up to 12,596,028 of the Fund’s outstanding common shares of beneficial interest («common shares»), representing twenty percent of its common shares.
The Fund’s tender offer will commence on Wednesday, September 8, 2021, and will expire, unless extended, at 11:59 p.m., New York City time, on Thursday, October 7, 2021. Subject to various terms and conditions described in offering materials to be distributed to shareholders: (1) purchases will be made at a price per share equal to 98.5% of the Fund’s NAV per share as of the close of trading on the next trading day after the expiration of the offer; and (2) if more shares are tendered than the amount the Board has authorized to purchase, the Fund will purchase a number of shares equal to the offer amount on a prorated basis.
The Fund’s common shares have recently traded at a discount to its NAV per share. During the pendency of the tender offer, the current NAV per share will be available by telephone at 1-800-341-2929 or on the Fund’s website at www.invesco.com/us.
The Fund has implemented a managed distribution plan (the «Plan») whereby the Fund will pay its monthly dividend to common shareholders at a stated fixed monthly distribution amount of $0.075 per share. The Plan is intended to provide shareholders with a consistent, but not guaranteed, periodic cash payment, regardless of when or whether income is earned or capital gains are realized. If sufficient investment income is not available for a monthly distribution, the Fund will distribute long-term capital gains and/or return of capital in order to maintain its managed distribution level under the Plan. A return of capital may occur, for example, when some or all of the money that shareholders invested in the Fund is paid back to them. A return of capital distribution does not necessarily reflect the Fund’s investment performance and should not be confused with «yield» or «income.» No conclusions should be drawn about the Fund’s investment performance from the amount of its distributions or from the terms of the Plan. The Plan will be subject to periodic review by the Fund’s Board, and the Board may amend the terms of the Plan or terminate the Plan at any time without prior notice to the Fund’s shareholders. The amendment or termination of the Plan could have an adverse effect on the market price of the Fund’s common shares.

Shareholders will be notified in accordance with the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, and the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended, either by publication or mailing or both.
