Gabelli Healthcare & WellnessRx Trust Announces Terms For Rights Offering

Stocks in this article: GBL GRX

The Gabelli Healthcare & Wellness Rx Trust (the “Fund”) (NYSE:GRX) announced the final terms of its Rights Offering that was initially announced on December 9, 2010. Pursuant to the Offer, the Fund will distribute to shareholders one transferable Right for each common share held on the record date of March 8, 2011.

Three Rights will enable a shareholder to purchase one additional common share at a price of $6.50 per share (the “Subscription Price”). The Rights are expected to be traded on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE:GRX RT) and will be transferable. The subscription period will commence on March 8, 2011 (the record date) and terminate 35 days later on April 12, 2011 (the expiration date), unless extended for up to ten business days. Rights may be exercised at any time during the subscription period.

As in previous rights offerings by other Gabelli closed-end funds, record date shareholders who exercise their primary subscription Rights will be eligible for an over-subscription privilege entitling these shareholders to subscribe, subject to certain limitations and a pro-rata allotment, for any additional common shares not purchased pursuant to the primary subscription. In addition, under certain circumstances, the Fund may issue additional common shares to satisfy over-subscription requests by record date shareholders in excess of the common shares available for the over-subscription privilege. Rights acquired in the secondary market may not participate in the over-subscription privilege. The Board of Trustees has the right in its absolute discretion to eliminate the over-subscription privilege with respect to either or both primary over-subscription shares and secondary over-subscription shares if it considers it to be in the best interest of the Fund to do so. The Board of Trustees may make that determination at any time, without prior notice to Rights holders or others, up to and including the tenth day following the expiration date.
