Federated Investment Management Company Announces Completion of Closed-End Fund Reorganization
PITTSBURGH, Nov. 20, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — Federated Investment Management Company announced today that the reorganization of Federated Premier Intermediate Municipal Income Fund (NYSE: FPT) with and into Federated Premier Municipal Income Fund (NYSE: FMN) has been completed.
In the reorganization, holders of FPT common shares and preferred shares received a number of FMN common shares and preferred shares based on the relative net asset value per common share and the relative liquidation preference per preferred share, respectively, determined as of the close of business on Friday, Nov. 17, 2017.
The relative net asset value per common share generated an exchange ratio that resulted in former FPT common shareholders receiving 0.950059289 common shares for each FPT common share they previously held. Former FPT common shareholders generally will receive cash payments in lieu of fractional FMN common shares. The relative liquidation preference per preferred share resulted in former FPT preferred shareholders receiving the same number of FMN preferred shares as the FPT preferred shares they held immediately prior to the reorganization.
