DENVER--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jul 9, 2018--Principal Real Estate Income Fund (NYSE: PGZ) (the “Fund”) held its annual shareholder meeting (the “Meeting”) on July 6, 2018, as adjourned, at which shareholders voted to approve the election of Rick Pederson and Jeremy Held* as trustees of the Fund, a new investment advisory agreement between the Fund and ALPS Advisors, Inc. (“ALPS”), and a new investment sub-advisory agreement between ALPS and Principal Real Estate Investors, LLC (“Principal”), with respect to the Fund.

The new investment advisory and sub-advisory agreements were presented to shareholders in connection with the recently completed transaction in which DST Systems, Inc., the parent company of ALPS, was acquired by SS&C Technologies Holdings, Inc. (the “Transaction”). The consummation of the Transaction on April 16, 2018 caused the termination of the Fund’s investment advisory and sub-advisory agreements that had been in place with respect to ALPS and Principal, respectively, since the Fund’s commencement of operations. Beginning on April 16, 2018 and until the Meeting, ALPS and Principal served in their respective roles with the Fund pursuant to interim investment advisory and sub-advisory agreements. Except for the commencement dates, each of the new advisory and sub-advisory agreements have materially the same terms as the corresponding agreements in effect prior to the consummation of the Transaction.
