Cohen & Steers Closed-End Opportunity Fund (FOF) Announces Proxy Results

NEW YORK, June 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Cohen & Steers Closed-End Opportunity Fund, Inc. (NYSE: FOF) announced today that an insufficient number of proxies were submitted to establish a quorum for the special meeting of stockholders scheduled for today.  Accordingly, the charter-required proposal to convert to an open-end fund was not considered.  Of the proxies submitted, stockholders, following the recommendations of the Fund's board of directors and management, voted overwhelmingly against converting FOF to an open-end structure.  In addition, Institutional Shareholder Services recommended that stockholders vote against the proposal.  As disclosed in the proxy statement for the special meeting, if a quorum is not present or represented at the meeting, the Fund is under no further obligation to adjourn the meeting or submit a similar proposal to stockholders in the future.

Cohen & Steers Closed-End Opportunity Fund, Inc. is a closed-end fund that invests in closed-end funds.  The Fund's investment objective is to seek total return, consisting of high current income and potential capital appreciation.
