DALLAS, Oct. 7, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — NexPoint Credit Strategies Fund (the “Fund”) (NYSE: NHF) effected its 1-for-4 reverse stock split of the Fund’s issued and outstanding shares on October 6, 2015. As a result of the reverse stock split, every 4 outstanding Fund shares (CUSIP # 65340G106) were converted into 1 share (CUSIP # 65340G 205), thereby reducing by a factor of 4 the number of shares outstanding. Stockholders hold the same percentage of the Fund’s outstanding common stock immediately following the reverse stock split as such stockholder held immediately prior to the reverse stock split, subject to adjustments for fractional shares resulting from the reverse stock split. Stockholders will be paid cash for any fractional shares resulting from the reverse stock split once the reverse stock split is processed by the Fund’s transfer agent, American Stock Transfer & Trust Company, LLC (“AST”).
Additionally, please note that the Fund’s dividend policy will not change due to the Reverse Stock Split; however, the regular monthly dividend payable on October 30, 2015, of $.06 per pre-split share, will represent $.24 per new share, reflecting the smaller number of shares outstanding post-split.
- Holders of certificates representing pre-split shares of the Fund’s common stock will receive, upon surrender of their certificates representing such pre-split shares, uncertificated post-split shares of the Fund’s common stock (i.e., a stockholder’s holdings of post-split shares will be reflected only in the Fund’s record books). Although it is not mandatory for holders to exchange their pre-split certificates, stockholders will not be able to trade their shares or to receive any dividends or other distributions until the surrender of the certificates representing such pre-split shares of the Fund’s common stock. Stockholders will receive a Letter of Transmittal with additional information regarding the reverse stock split after the reverse stock split has settled.
- Shares held in the Fund’s Dividend Reinvestment Program (“DRIP”) will automatically be exchanged into post-split shares. AST will provide investors with additional information about post-split shares with their post exchange DRIP statement. No additional action needs to be taken by DRIP investors to effect the exchange of their DRIP shares.
- For those shares held in book-entry form, the changes resulting from the reverse stock split will be automatically reflected in the Fund’s record books. This means that an investor’s shares will be credited to an account registered in the investor’s name on the books of the Fund, which are maintained by AST.
Investors who hold Fund shares in street name will be notified of the change in share count by their broker. Please contact AST toll-free at (877) 248-6417 or at (718) 921-8317 if you need to update your address, have any questions, or need further information.
