BOSTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The Eaton Vance Floating-Rate 2022 Target Term Trust (NYSE: EFL) (“the Trust”) announced today new details concerning its liquidation. Consistent with its investment objectives and organizational documents, the Trust plans to terminate its existence and liquidate on or about October 31, 2022 (“Termination Date”).
As previously announced, the Trust is preparing for its termination on Termination Date. During this period, the Trust will deviate from its investment objectives and policies. As such, the Trust has repaid its outstanding borrowings and terminated its credit agreement. As of July 21, 2022, the investment adviser and administration fee paid by the Trust was reduced to 0.35% of the Trust’s average daily total managed assets. As of July 21, 2022, the assets of the Trust were comprised primarily of cash, cash equivalents and receivables for securities that had been sold but unsettled.
The Trust’s investment objectives are high current income and to return the Trust’s original per-share $9.85 net asset value (“Original NAV”) to common shareholders upon termination. The Trust’s objective is not a guarantee, and there can be no assurance it will be attained. Due to challenging market conditions over the life of the Trust, the Trust will not meet its objective of returning Original NAV to common shareholders at termination. As of August 19, 2022, the Trust’s net asset value per share was $8.64.
