Triloma EIG Global Energy Funds to Expand Range of Investment Opportunities

SEC Issues Notice of Exemptive Relief

WINTER PARK, FL--(Marketwired - May 11, 2016) - The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) issued a notice of application for an order for exemptive relief that will permit Triloma EIG Global Energy Fund and Triloma EIG Global Energy Term Fund I (collectively, the Funds) to co-invest in portfolio companies with each other and with certain affiliated investment funds. The Funds expect the SEC to grant an order for exemptive relief in approximately 30 days, allowing the Funds to participate in directly originated investment transactions, including those alongside EIG's private funds, subject to the conditions in the order.

"We feel the current energy market conditions are creating investment opportunities in both privately negotiated transactions and secondary market transactions. We believe the exemptive relief order will generate greater deal flow, broaden our market relationships and allow us to be more selective in choosing investments that provide the most attractive risk-adjusted returns," said R. Blair Thomas, CEO of EIG Global Energy Partners.

"We employ a disciplined, value-oriented investment approach for the Funds that is designed to maximize current income and minimize the risk of capital loss," said Deryck Harmer, president and CEO of the Funds. "We believe that co-investing in transactions with EIG provides greater access to energy investments that are structured with favorable protections, including asset-based collateral and rigorous covenants."
