NEW YORK, Aug. 19, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — GSO / Blackstone Debt Funds Management LLC, an affiliate of GSO Capital Partners LP («GSO»), announced that Blackstone / GSO Long-Short Credit Income Fund (the «Fund») has established an at-the-market equity shelf program (the «Program»). The Program is designed to provide the Fund’s portfolio managers with additional flexibility to pursue attractive investment opportunities that they believe may enhance long-term shareholder returns without the need to sell existing portfolio investments. Under the Program, the Fund, subject to market conditions, may raise additional equity capital by issuing new common shares, from time to time, in varying amounts at a net price at or above the Fund’s net asset value per common share plus the per share amount of any commission.
The Fund has filed a registration statement with the Securities and Exchange Commission relating to the Program, which was declared effective on May 22, 2020, and a prospectus supplement dated August 18, 2020. This press release is not an offer to sell newly registered common shares and is not soliciting an offer to buy newly registered common shares in any jurisdiction where such offer or sale is not permitted.
Investors should consider the Fund’s investment objectives, risks, charges, and expenses carefully before investing and may obtain full Fund information by visiting the Fund’s website at www.blackstone-gso.com/bgx. The Fund’s prospectus should be read carefully before investing.
