RiverNorth Opportunities Fund Announces Final Results of Rights Offering

RiverNorth Opportunities Fund Inc. (NYSE: RIV) is pleased to announce that it will issue a total of 1,564,710 new shares of common stock (the “Common Shares”) as a result of the Fund’s rights offering which expired on November 9, 2017 (the “Expiration Date”).

In response to high investor demand, the Board of Directors of the Fund elected to exercise the Fund’s over-subscription privilege in full (as described in the Fund’s Prospectus dated October 10, 2017) thereby increasing the Common Shares available for subscription by 25% over the primary offering. The total new Common Shares to be issued will consist of 1,251,768 shares issued related to the Fund’s primary subscription of shares and 312,942 shares issued related to the Fund’s secondary over-subscription of shares. The secondary over-subscription shares will be allocated pro-rata among record date stockholders who submitted over-subscription requests based on the number of rights originally issued to them by the Fund.

The subscription price of $19.54 per share was established on the Expiration Date, which represented 95% of the market price per Common Share, based on the average of the last reported sales price of a Common Share on the New York Stock Exchange for the five trading days preceding the Expiration Date. The Common Shares to be issued in connection with the rights offering will be entitled to participate in the Fund’s November 2017 announced distribution.

The investment objective of the Fund is total return consisting of capital appreciation and current income. The Fund had approximately $77.5 million of total assets and 3.75 million Common Shares outstanding as of October 31, 2017.

Shares of closed-end investment companies frequently trade at a discount from their net asset value and initial offering prices. The risks associated with this characteristic of closed-end investment companies may be greater for investors expecting to sell their shares in a relatively short period after completion of the initial public offering.

The Fund is a closed-end fund and does not continuously issue shares for sale as open-end mutual funds do. Since the initial public offering, the Fund now trades in the secondary market. Investors wishing to buy or sell shares need to place orders through an intermediary or broker. The share price of a closed-end fund is based on the market's value.

ALPS Advisors, Inc. is the investment adviser to the Fund.

RiverNorth Capital Management, LLC is the investment sub-adviser to the Fund. RiverNorth Capital Management, LLC is not affiliated with ALPS Advisors, Inc. or any of its affiliates.
