NEW YORK, NY / ACCESSWIRE / May 3, 2021 / Foxby Corp. (OTC PINK:FXBY) (Net Asset Value Symbol: XFXBX) (the 'Fund'), a non-diversified, closed end fund with an investment objective of total return, announced today that as a result of its previously announced 1-for-5 reverse stock split, the Fund's shares will be traded on a post-split basis under the stock symbol 'FXBYD' for 20 business days beginning on, and including, May 7, 2021. Thereafter, on June 7, 2021, the Fund's stock symbol will revert back to 'FXBY'. The Financial Industry Regulatory Authority Inc. (FINRA) temporarily appends the letter 'D' to the root symbol of all OTC equity securities subject to a reverse split with a CUSIP change to alert investors that the security was recently subject to such a corporation action.
As previously announced, the 1-for-5 reverse stock split will take effect after the market closes on May 6, 2021. The Fund's shares will begin trading on a split-adjusted basis with a new CUSIP when the market opens on May 7, 2021.
Upon the effectiveness of the reverse stock split, every 5 outstanding shares of the Fund will automatically be changed into 1 share. No fractional shares will be issued as a result of the reverse stock split.
The reverse stock split is intended to increase the market price of the Fund. The reverse stock split will not impact any stockholder's ownership percentage in the Fund or his or her voting power, except for minimal effects resulting from the treatment of fractional shares, nor will it result in a taxable transaction, except for the impact of minimal gains or losses from the exchange of fractional shares for cash. The Fund will pay cash for all fractional shares resulting from the reverse stock split at the split adjusted net asset value per share.
About Foxby Corp.
Foxby Corp., a non-diversified closed end management investment company, seeks to achieve its non-fundamental investment objective of total return from growth of capital and from income by investment in securities of any type, unlimited by the issuer's location, size, or market capitalization. There is no assurance that the Fund's investment objective will be attained.
From time to time, shares of the Fund may trade at a premium to net asset value (NAV) or a discount to NAV. During such periods when the Fund's NAV per share is above the market price, there may be an opportunity for investors to purchase shares of the Fund at a discount to their underlying value. The Fund's premium or discount to NAV may vary over time and shares of the Fund may subsequently be worth more or less than their original cost.

Past performance is no guarantee of future results. You should consider the investment objective, risks, charges and expenses of the Fund carefully before investing. The Fund's investment policies, management fees and other matters of interest to prospective investors may be found in its filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, including its annual and semi-annual reports.

Shares of closed end funds frequently trade at a discount from their NAV. This characteristic is a risk separate and distinct from the risk that the Fund's NAV has decreased in the past, and therefore could decrease in the future, as a result of its investment activities. Neither the Investment Manager nor the Fund can predict whether shares of the Fund will trade at, below, or above NAV. The risk of holding shares of the Fund that might trade at a discount is more pronounced for investors expecting to sell their shares in a relatively short period of time after acquiring them because, for those investors, realization of a gain or loss on their investments is likely to be more dependent upon the existence of a premium or discount than upon portfolio performance. The shares of the Fund are designed primarily for long term investors and should not be considered a vehicle for trading purposes. The NAV of the Fund's shares typically will fluctuate with price changes of the Fund's portfolio securities, and these fluctuations are likely to be greater in the case of a fund which uses leverage, as the Fund may from time to time. In the event that shares of the Fund trade at a premium to NAV, there is no assurance that any such premium will be sustained for any period of time and will not decrease, or that the shares of the Fund will not trade at a discount to NAV thereafter. The market price for the Fund is based on supply and demand which fluctuates daily based on many factors, such as economic conditions and global events, investor sentiment, and security-specific factors.
