THE FUND: Carlyle Credit Income Fund is a closed-end fund that is managed externally. Its primary focus is on investing in equity and junior debt tranches of collateralized loan obligations (“CLOs”). These CLOs are secured by a portfolio consisting mainly of senior secured loans in the U.S., which have a significant number of distinct underlying borrowers across various industry sectors.

THE ALLEGED WRONGDOING: On January 12, 2023, the Fund announced that, if approved by a shareholder vote upon condition that the Fund sell at least 95% of its residential portfolio: (i) the Fund’s investment manager would be replaced by Carlyle Global Credit Investment Management L.L.C.; and (ii) the Fund’s investment mandate would change from investing in residential home loans to investing in equity and debt tranches of collateralized loan obligations.

THE REVELATION: On July 11, 2023, the Fund announced that it had sold most of its legacy loan portfolio for “aggregate proceeds lower than the book value of the combined assets….” As a result, the Fund revised its NAV to $8.27 per share. Shortly after, the Fund’s stock price fell $1.45 or 14.7% to close at $8.45 per share.
