Agreement Secures “Saba Special Distribution” Paid to All Shareholders
Saba Capital Management, L.P. and certain associated parties (collectively “Saba” or “we”) today announced that it has reached an agreement regarding Salient Midstream & MLP Fund (NYSE: SMM) (the “Fund”).
Under the terms of the agreement, Saba has agreed to support the Fund’s reorganization into a lower fee open-end mutual fund, Salient MLP & Energy Infrastructure Fund. In addition, the Fund’s investment advisor will make a payment of $300,000 to the Fund, to be paid out to all shareholders as a special “Saba Special Distribution”.
“Saba is excited to have reached this agreement through constructive engagement with the Fund’s board and its advisor,” said Paul Kazarian, Partner and Portfolio Manager at Saba. “As a result, shareholders who choose to exit the Fund will be able to do so at a premium to its net asset value because of the Saba Special Distribution. Shareholders who choose to stay in the open-end fund will benefit from the Saba Special Distribution as well as a 20% reduction in their management fee going forward.”
