Share Buyback Programme Initiated

Riverstone Credit Opportunities Income Plc (the "Company" or "RCOI") announces that it has appointed J.P. Morgan Securities plc (which conducts its UK investment banking activities as J.P. Morgan Cazenove) ("J.P. Morgan Cazenove") to act as its broker to commence market purchases of its own shares (the "buybacks").

The buybacks will be undertaken for the purpose of allowing the Company to return some of its uncommitted capital to shareholders and in recognition of the Company's current discount to NAV.

The buybacks will be funded from the Company's existing resources.

The buybacks will be made pursuant to the authority granted at the annual general meeting of the Company held on 18 May 2022, pursuant to which it has authority to repurchase a maximum of 13,722,652 of its ordinary shares (being its outstanding shareholder authority). Such authority lasts until the next annual general meeting of the Company (or other such general meeting of shareholders at which authority to buy back shares is obtained).

No maximum consideration payable has been determined by the Company, but the Company is unable to pay a price for any shares pursuant to the buybacks which would equate to a premium on the net asset value of such shares.

Reuben Jeffery, Chairman, said:

"We have great confidence in the strategy, assets and differentiated approach of RCOI, with its increasing focus on energy infrastructure and energy-transition loans that have a green or sustainability-linked element as well as the outstanding portfolio performance since listing to date. We believe that the current discount to NAV does not accurately reflect the fund's portfolio quality and pipeline."

This arrangement is in accordance with the Company's general authority to repurchase shares and (although not strictly applicable to the Company) the parameters set out in Listing Rules 12.4.1 and 12.4.2 of the Financial Conduct Authority's Listing Rules.
