CHICAGO--()--RiverNorth Flexible Municipal Income Fund, Inc. (NYSE: RFM) and RiverNorth Opportunistic Municipal Income Fund, Inc. (NYSE: RMI) are announcing corrections to the information provided with respect to each fund’s year-end capital gains distribution, discussed below. This corrects the information previously announced in a December 4, 2020 press release.

The correct distribution amount applicable to the year-end capital gains distribution for the RiverNorth Opportunistic Municipal Income Fund, Inc. is as follows:

RiverNorth Opportunistic Municipal Income Fund, Inc. (NYSE: RMI)1


Short-Term Capital Gains Distribution Per Share

Long-Term Capital Gains Distribution Per Share

The December 4, 2020 press release originally disclosed a distribution amount consisting of $0.31355 of long-term capital gains. There are no changes to the dates for the distribution, which are restated below:

Ex Date

Record Date

Payable Date

December 16, 2020

December 17, 2020

December 31, 2020

All revisions described are being made in response to corrected excise tax calculations provided by the funds’ administrator. There are no changes to the funds’ regular monthly distributions that are scheduled to be paid on December 31, 2020 to shareholders of record on December 17, 2020. All other information contained in the December 4, 2020 press release remains unchanged.


With each distribution that does not consist solely of net investment income, the respective Fund will issue a notice to shareholders that will provide detailed information regarding the amount and composition of the distribution and other related information. The amounts and sources of distributions reported in the notice to shareholders are only estimates and are not being provided for tax reporting purposes. The actual amounts and sources of the amounts for tax reporting purposes will depend upon the Fund’s investment experience during its full fiscal year and may be subject to changes based on tax regulations. Each Fund will send shareholders a Form 1099-DIV for the calendar year that will tell them how to report these distributions for federal income tax purposes.

Each Fund may at times distribute more than its net investment income and net realized capital gains; therefore, a portion of the distribution may result in a return of capital. A return of capital occurs when some or all of the money that shareholders invested in the Fund is paid back to them. A return of capital does not necessarily reflect the Fund’s investment performance and should not be confused with ‘yield’ or ‘income.’ Any such returns of capital will decrease the Fund’s total assets and, therefore, could have the effect of increasing the Fund’s expense ratio. In addition, in order to make the level of distributions called for under its plan, the Fund may have to sell its portfolio securities at a less than opportune time.

The Funds referenced above are closed-end funds, and closed-end funds do not continuously issue shares for sale as open-end mutual funds do. Since the initial public offering periods have closed, each 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.

Shares of closed-end investment companies frequently trade at a discount to their net asset value and initial offering price. The risk of loss due to this discount may be greater for initial investors expecting to sell their shares in a relatively short period after completion of the initial public offering.

Investments in the Funds are not appropriate for all investors and are not intended to be complete investment programs. The Funds are designed as a long-term investments and not as a trading vehicles.

Risk is inherent in all investing. Investing in any investment company security involves risk, including the risk that you may receive little or no return on your investment or even that you may lose part or all of your investment. Therefore, before investing in the common shares of a Fund, you should consider the risks as well as the other information in each Fund’s prospectus.
