DALLAS, July 10, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Highland Capital Management Fund Advisors, L.P. (together with its affiliates "Highland") announced today that the Highland Global Allocation Fund (NYSE:HGLB) (the "Fund") has completed $10 million in repurchases of the Fund's shares.
"The Fund's repurchase program represents our commitment to enhancing shareholder value and our conviction in the portfolio," said Dustin Norris, head of distribution and chief product strategist. "We expect the repurchases at a discount to NAV to result in a gain of approximately $2.3 million and save an estimated $1.2 million annually in dividends and expenses."
The repurchase program began following the conversion of the Fund from an open-end fund to a closed-end fund, which took place in February.
The program, which was authorized by the Board of Trustees of the Fund (the "Board") ahead of the conversion, provides a six-month time period following the conversion for the Fund to carry out repurchases. As such, the Fund may repurchase additional shares during the third quarter, with the ability to repurchase up to 5% of outstanding shares in total under the program.
