(NYSE: CEM) announced today additional details concerning its previously announced cash tender offer for up to 50% of such Fund’s outstanding shares of common stock (“Shares”) at a price per share equal to 100% of the Fund’s net asset value per Share on the day on which the tender offer expires (the “Offer”).

The Fund commenced the Offer today, May 21, 2024, with an expiration time of 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on June 20, 2024, unless extended.
