DENVER, Oct. 20, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- RiverNorth Opportunities Fund, Inc. (NYSE: RIV) (the "Fund") announces that it has extended the expiration date ("Expiration Date") of the Fund's previously announced transferable subscription rights offering (the "Rights Offering") to 5:00 PM Eastern Time on November 6, 2020, unless further extended by the Fund's Board of Directors. The extension of the Expiration Date was completed to avoid the original expiration date of November 3, 2020 falling on the same date as the U.S. election.
The extension of the Rights Offering does not require that the holders of transferable subscription rights ("Rights") who have already subscribed to purchase shares under the Rights Offering take any action. All other terms and conditions of the Rights Offering remain the same as previously announced, except that, as a result of the extension of the Expiration Date, all payments for guarantees of delivery will be due on November 10, 2020, while confirmation to participants in the Rights Offering will be provided no later than November 16, 2020. Shares of common stock issued pursuant to the Rights Offering will be record date shares for the purposes of the Fund's November 2020 distribution payable.
