NEW YORK, Oct. 24, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Neuberger Berman Real Estate Securities Income Fund Inc. (NYSE MKT: NRO) (the "Fund") announced today that its previously announced tender offer for up to 15% of its outstanding shares of common stock at a price equal to 98% of its net asset value per share ("NAV"), as determined on the day the tender offer expires, is currently expected to commence on December 9, 2016, and expire on January 9, 2017, unless extended. The Fund previously announced that it would conduct a tender offer for up to 15% of its outstanding shares of common stock at a price equal to 98% of its NAV if the Fund's shares of common stock traded at an average daily discount to NAV of more than 10% during the period from December 31, 2015 through September 30, 2016 (the "Measurement Period"). While the Fund's shares of common stock traded at a discount to NAV of 9.54% as of the close of the Measurement Period, the stock's average daily discount to NAV for the Measurement Period was 11.80%. Accordingly, the Fund announced it will conduct a tender offer.
Additional terms and conditions of the Fund's tender offer will be set forth in its offering materials, which will be distributed to its common stockholders. If more than 15% of the Fund's outstanding common stock is tendered, and not withdrawn, the Fund will purchase common stock from tendering stockholders on a pro rata basis. Accordingly, common stockholders cannot be assured that the Fund will purchase all of their tendered common stock.
This announcement is not a recommendation, an offer to purchase or a solicitation of an offer to sell stock of the Fund. The Fund has not yet commenced the tender offer described in this release. Any tender offer will be made only by an offer to purchase, a related letter of transmittal and other documents that will be filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission as exhibits to a tender offer statement on Schedule TO and will be available free of charge at the SEC's website at www.sec.gov. Common stockholders should read the offer to purchase and tender offer statement on Schedule TO and related exhibits when those documents are filed and become available as they will contain important information about the tender offer. The Fund will also make available, without charge, the offer to purchase and the letter of transmittal.
