Triloma Energy Income Fund Losses
Investors in the Triloma EIG Energy Income Fund (the “Triloma Perpetual Fund”) and the Triloma EIG Energy Income Fund – Term I (the “Triloma Term Fund”) (collectively, the “Triloma Funds”) may be able to recover their investment losses through FINRA arbitration, in the event that the investment was recommended by a financial advisor who lacked a reasonable basis for the recommendation, or if the nature of the investment was misrepresented by the financial advisor. The Triloma Funds are publicly registered, unlisted closed-end management investment companies under the Investment Company Act of 1940 (’40 Act) that focus on investing in privately originated energy company and energy project debt. The Triloma Funds are managed by Triloma Energy Advisors and EIG Credit Management Company.
On March 26, 2018, the Board of Trustees of the Funds approved a plan of liquidation of each respective fund, authorizing the liquidation and dissolution of the Triloma Funds. Pursuant to the liquidation plan, the Triloma Funds will not engage in any further business activities, except for the purpose of winding down operations and business affairs. Further, in accordance with the plan of liquidation, the Boards agreed to terminate each funds’ respective distribution reinvestment plan and previously approved monthly distributions.
Under the plan of liquidation, the Triloma Funds have agreed to sell their originated investments to a third-party and will use a portion of the proceeds to pay all of their outstanding debts, claims and obligations. Triloma Funds’ shareholders can expect to receive an initial cash liquidating distribution on or about May 15, 2018. To the extent that any assets might remain after such liquidation payments and satisfaction of final expenses, there will be a second liquidating distribution above a threshold of $100 per shareholder made on or before June 30, 2018.
