NEW YORK, Dec. 10, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Brookfield Public Securities Group LLC (“Brookfield”) announced that, at the Special Meeting of Stockholders (the “Special Meeting”) held earlier today, stockholders of Brookfield Real Assets Income Fund Inc. (: RA) (the “Fund”) approved the proposal to ratify the selection of Deloitte & Touche LLP as the Fund’s independent registered public accounting firm for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2020. In addition, Brookfield announced that the Special Meeting was adjourned with respect to the proposal to approve a new sub-advisory agreement (the "New Sub-Advisory Agreement") among Brookfield, Oaktree Capital Management, L.P. and the Fund until 8:30 a.m., Eastern Time, on Friday, December 18, 2020. The Special Meeting has been adjourned to allow for further solicitation of stockholders to meet the requirement that the New Sub-Advisory Agreement is approved by the affirmative vote of a “majority of the outstanding voting securities” of the Fund.1 As of the Special Meeting date, the Fund needs approximately an additional 3.2% of its outstanding shares to vote in favor of the proposal in order to approve the New Sub-Advisory Agreement. Additionally, in light of public health concerns regarding the COVID-19 pandemic, the rescheduled Special Meeting will be held in a virtual meeting format only.

As noted in the proxy materials previously distributed for the Special Meeting, the Board of Directors of the Fund had fixed the close of business on November 2, 2020 as the record date for the determination of stockholders of the Fund entitled to notice of, and to vote at, the Special Meeting or any postponement or adjournment thereof. To attend the rescheduled Special Meeting virtually, stockholders must email the Fund’s proxy solicitor, American Stock Transfer & Trust Company, LLC (“AST”), at [email protected] and provide their full name, address and control number located on the proxy card previously received. AST will then email the stockholder meeting credentials and instructions for voting during the Special Meeting.

If you held Fund shares through an intermediary (such as a broker-dealer) as of November 2, 2020, in order to participate in and vote at the Special Meeting, you must first obtain a legal proxy from your intermediary reflecting the Fund’s name, the number of Fund shares you held, and your name and email address. You may forward an email from your intermediary containing the legal proxy or an image of the legal proxy to AST at [email protected] and write “Legal Proxy” in the subject line. Requests for registration must be received by AST no later than 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time on December 17, 2020. You will then receive confirmation of your registration and a control number by email from AST. AST will also email your stockholder meeting credentials and instructions for voting during the Special Meeting.

Stockholders are not required to attend the Special Meeting to vote their shares. Whether or not stockholders plan to attend the Special Meeting, the Fund urges stockholders to authorize a proxy to vote the stockholder’s shares in advance of the Special Meeting by one of the methods described in the proxy materials for the Special Meeting. In connection with the Special Meeting, the Fund has filed a definitive proxy statement with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”). Stockholders are advised to read the Fund’s proxy statement because it contains important information. This communication is not a solicitation of a proxy from any Fund stockholder. The Fund and its directors and officers, and Brookfield, and its shareholders, officers and employees and other persons may be deemed under the rules of the SEC to be participants in the solicitation of proxies from stockholders in connection with the proposals to be voted on at the Special Meeting. Information about Brookfield, and directors and officers of the Fund may be found in the Fund’s annual and semi-annual reports, and its annual shareholder meeting proxy statements previously filed with the SEC.


1 Under the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended, the vote of a "majority of the outstanding voting securities" of the Fund means the vote of the lesser of: (a) 67% or more of the voting securities present at the Special Meeting, if the holders of more than 50% of the outstanding voting securities of the Fund are present or represented by proxy; or (b) more than 50% of the outstanding voting securities of the Fund.
