Special Meeting of Shareholders – REMS Real Estate Income 50/50 Fund
The Board of Trustees (the “Board”) of World Funds Trust (the “Trust”) has approved an Agreement and Plan of Reorganization whereby the REMS Real Estate Income 50/50 Fund (the “Target Fund”), a series of the Trust, will reorganize and merge into the REMS Real Estate Value-Opportunity Fund (the “Survivor Fund”), also a series of the Trust (the “Reorganization”). The Board authorized Trust management to submit the proposal to shareholders of the Target Fund for approval. The Reorganization will be structured as a tax-free reorganization for federal tax purposes. Following the Reorganization, the Target Fund will be terminated and cease operations as a separate series of the Trust. The Reorganization, if approved by shareholders of the Target Fund, is expected to take effect on or about December 18, 2020, or as soon as possible thereafter.
Real Estate Management Services Group, LLC (the “Adviser”) is the investment adviser to both the Target Fund and the Survivor Fund. The Adviser will continue to serve as the investment adviser to the Survivor Fund following the Reorganization and has committed to maintaining the expense limitation arrangements that are in place for the Survivor Fund until April 30, 2031. Similarly, the Board and all other service providers to the Survivor Fund will remain in place immediately following the Reorganization. Until the Reorganization takes effect, the Adviser will continue to actively invest the Target Fund’s assets in accordance with its investment objective and policies. Shareholders of the Target Fund may redeem their investments as described in the Target Fund’s Prospectus.
In the next few weeks, shareholders of record of the Target Fund will receive a combined proxy statement/prospectus with respect to the proposed Reorganization. A more complete description of the Reorganization, including the differences in investment strategies and fees and expenses, as well as information regarding the factors the Board considered in approving the Reorganization, will be provided in the combined proxy statement/prospectus. A special meeting of shareholders of the Target Fund to consider the proposals described above is expected to occur in December 2020.
