ATLANTA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The Boards of Trustees of Angel Oak Financial Strategies Income Term Trust (NYSE: FINS) and Angel Oak Dynamic Financial Strategies Income Term Trust (NYSE: DYFN) have approved a proposal to reorganize DYFN with and into FINS. The reorganization is intended to provide potential benefits to shareholders, including lower operating expenses and greater secondary market liquidity, among other things.
The proposed reorganization, which is expected to be completed in the second half of 2022, is subject to certain conditions, including necessary approval by FINS’s shareholders and the satisfaction of applicable regulatory requirements and other customary closing conditions. The proposed reorganization would be accomplished through the transfer of all the assets of DYFN to FINS in exchange solely for newly issued common shares of beneficial interest of FINS at a ratio of the net asset value of each Fund. There will be no change to the investment objectives, investment strategies or investment policies of FINS as a result of the proposed reorganization.

Under normal circumstances, at least 50% of FINS’s portfolio is publicly rated as investment grade or, if unrated, is judged by Angel Oak Capital Advisors, LLC (“Angel Oak”) to be of investment grade quality.
