Gabelli Healthcare & WellnessRx Trust Concludes 2011 Rights Offering, Which Is Heavily Over-Subscribed

The Gabelli Healthcare & Wellness Rx Trust (the “Fund”) (NYSE:GRX) is pleased to announce the completion of a rights offering (the “Offering” or “Offer”) in which 2.8 million common shares are expected to be issued, totaling $18 million. The Fund’s existing common shareholders received one transferable right (a “Right”) for each common share of the Fund held on the record date (March 8, 2011). Holders of Rights were entitled to purchase one newly issued common share by submitting three Rights and $6.50 per share (the “Subscription Price”). The Offer expired at 5:00 PM Eastern Time on April 12, 2011 and the Rights will no longer trade on the New York Stock Exchange.

Preliminary results indicate that the Fund received subscriptions (including over-subscription requests) for over 300% of the 2,809,315 shares available to be issued pursuant to the primary subscription, totaling nearly $56 million. Approximately 68% of the shares to be issued were subscribed for in the primary subscription. Pursuant to the Offering, the remaining shares to be issued will be allocated by means of the over-subscription privilege.

Those shareholders of record as of March 8, 2011 who exercised their full primary subscription Rights were eligible for an over-subscription privilege entitling them to subscribe, subject to certain limitations and subject to allotment, for any shares not purchased pursuant to the primary subscription. Details regarding shares to be allocated pursuant to the over-subscription privilege are not yet available. The Board of Trustees has the right in its absolute discretion to eliminate the over-subscription privilege with respect to the primary 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.
