Gabelli Utility Trust Announces Rights Offering

Stocks in this article: GBL GUT

The Board of Trustees of The Gabelli Utility Trust (NYSE:GUT) (the “Fund”) has approved a transferable rights offering by the Fund to its common shareholders (the “Offer” or “Offering”). The Offering to acquire additional common shares will be made only by means of a prospectus, and this announcement does not constitute an offer to sell, or a solicitation of an offer to buy, any of the Fund’s securities.

SUMMARY OF THE TERMS OF THE OFFER

  • Each shareholder will receive one transferable right (the “Right”) for each common share held on the record date (November 12, 2012).
  • Five Rights plus $6.00 (the “Subscription Price”) will be required to purchase one additional common share (the “Primary Subscription”). The purchase price will be payable in cash.
  • Record date shareholders who fully 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. Rights acquired in the secondary market may not participate in the over-subscription privilege.
  • The Rights are expected to trade “when issued” on the New York Stock Exchange beginning on November 7, 2012, and the Fund’s common shares are expected to trade “Ex-Rights” on November 8, 2012. The Rights are expected to begin trading for normal settlement on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE:GUT RT) on or about November 16, 2012.
  • The Offering expires at 5:00 PM Eastern Time on December 14, 2012.

The Fund expects to mail subscription certificates evidencing the Rights and a copy of the prospectus for this Offering to record date shareholders beginning on November 15, 2012. Financial Advisors will likely notify beneficial shareholders shortly thereafter. Morrow & Co., LLC will serve as the Information Agent for this Offering.
