Monthly distributions from RMI, RMM, RFM and RFMZ are expected to be generally exempt from regular U.S. federal income taxes, however, portions of these Funds’ distributions may (i) be subject to U.S. federal income tax, (ii) be includable in taxable income for purposes of the federal alternative minimum tax, or (iii) constitute a return of capital. Such distributions will also generally be subject to state and local taxes. RiverNorth does not provide tax advice; consult a professional tax advisor regarding your specific tax situation.

2

In accordance with its level distribution policy, RMI’s annual distribution rate has been set equal to 5.50% of the Fund’s initial public offering price of $20.00 per share.

3

In accordance with its level distribution policy, RMM’s annual distribution rate has been set equal to 5.50% of the Fund’s initial public offering price of $20.00 per share.

4

In accordance with its level distribution policy, RFM’s annual distribution rate has been set equal to 6.25% of the Fund’s initial public offering price of $20.00 per share.

5

In accordance with its level distribution policy, RFMZ’s annual distribution rate has been set equal to 6.00% of the Fund’s initial public offering price of $20.00 per share.

6

In accordance with its level distribution policy, OPP’s annual distribution rate has been set to 12.50% of the average of the Fund’s NAV per common share reported the final five trading days of the preceding calendar year.

7

In accordance with its level distribution policy, RSF’s annual distribution rate has been set to 10.00% of the average of the Fund’s NAV per common share reported the final five trading days of the preceding calendar year.

With each distribution that does not consist solely of net investment income, the respective Fund will issue a notice to shareholders and an accompanying press release that will provide detailed information regarding the amount and composition of the distribution and other related information. The amounts and sources of distributions reported in the notice to shareholders are only estimates and are not being provided for tax reporting purposes. The actual amounts and sources of the amounts for tax reporting purposes will depend upon the Fund’s investment experience during its full fiscal year and may be subject to changes based on tax regulations. Each Fund will send shareholders a Form 1099-DIV for the calendar year that will tell them how to report these distributions for federal income tax purposes.

Each Fund may at times distribute more than its net investment income and net realized capital gains; therefore, a portion of the distribution may result in a return of capital. A return of capital occurs when some or all of the money that shareholders invested in the Fund is paid back to them. A return of capital does not necessarily reflect the Fund’s investment performance and should not be confused with ‘yield’ or ‘income.’ Any such returns of capital will decrease the Fund’s total assets and, therefore, could have the effect of increasing the Fund’s expense ratio. In addition, in order to make the level of distributions called for under its plan, the Fund may have to sell its portfolio securities at a less than opportune time.
