PHILADELPHIA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The Board of Trustees (the “Board”) of the CBRE Global Real Estate Income Fund (NYSE: IGR) (the “Fund”) today announced the preliminary results of its transferable rights offering (the “Offer”) which expired on April 6, 2023 (the “Expiration Date”). The Offer entitled the rights holders to subscribe for up to 23,378,100 additional common shares of the Fund (“Common Shares”). The subscription price for the Common Shares to be issued was $5.03 per Common Share, which was determined based on a formula equal to 95% of the average of the last reported sales price of a Common Share on the NYSE on the Expiration Date and each of the four (4) immediately preceding trading days. The gross proceeds of the Offer are expected to be approximately $117.6 million (including oversubscription requests and notices of guaranteed delivery).
The Offer was oversubscribed; however, the Fund will not exercise the secondary oversubscription which would have increased the number of Common Shares to be issued in the Offer. The available oversubscription shares will be allocated pro rata among those fully exercising record date shareholders who oversubscribed based on the number of rights originally issued to them by the Fund. The Fund will return to those investors that submitted oversubscription requests the full amount of their excess payments.
The Common Shares subscribed for are expected to be issued on or about April 14, 2023, after completion of the pro-rata allocation of Common Shares in respect of the oversubscription privilege and receipt of all shareholder payments. The final subscription price is lower than the original estimated subscription price. Accordingly, any excess payments will be returned to subscribing rights holders as soon as practicable, in accordance with the prospectus supplement filed with the Securities Exchange Commission on February 27, 2023.
