Highland Capital Management Fund Advisors, L.P. (“HCMFA”) announced today that the Board of Trustees (the “Board”) of the Highland Income Fund (NYSE: HFRO) (“HFRO” or the “Fund”) approved a repurchase program pursuant to which the Fund may repurchase up to 10% of its stock in open-market transactions over a one-year period.
The program allows for the Fund to repurchase shares, if trading at a discount, in open-market transactions until the conclusion of the repurchase period on April 24, 2021.
By purchasing Fund shares, which are currently trading at a discount to the Fund’s net asset value (“NAV”), HCMFA seeks to enhance value for HFRO shareholders.
The total repurchase amount and the timing of repurchases will be subject to the Fund’s available cash, after consideration of reserves necessary for anticipated fund expenses and contingencies, and compliance with all applicable laws and regulations.
The Fund may sell portfolio securities in order to generate cash. There is no assurance that the Fund will repurchase shares in any amount.

Shares of closed-end investment companies frequently trade at a discount to NAV.
