NEW YORK, NY (May 15, 2013) – A committee of the board of directors (the “Board”) of Sierra Income Corporation (“SIC”) has approved an increase in its public offering price from $10.20 per share to $10.40 per share.
The increase in SIC’s public offering price was effective as of SIC’s May 16, 2013 semi-monthly closing and first applied to subscriptions received from May 1, 2013 through May 15, 2013. The purpose of the price increase was to ensure that SIC’s net asset value (“NAV”) per share did not exceed its offering price per share, after deducting selling commissions and dealer manager fees, as required by the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended.
If SIC continues to experience strong underlying portfolio performance, causing its NAV per share to exceed its increased net offering price, SIC may further increase the per share offering price of its shares of common stock for its future semi-monthly closings. SIC has not yet determined that a further adjustment to the newly-established offering price of $10.40 per share will be necessary. In the event SIC determines to adjust its current offering price, a separate announcement will be issued.
