As previously announced by the Board of Directors on November 6, 2018, in connection with the proposed mergers of the Company, Medley Capital Corporation and Medley Management Inc. (the “Mergers”), the Board of Directors approved a distribution guidance framework that set forth a target distribution rate for the Company if the Mergers are successfully consummated. In that regard, the Board of Directors determined that for each of the twelve months following the consummation of the Mergers, and subject to legally available funds, the Combined Company1 expects to pay monthly cash distributions to the holders of the Combined Company’s common stock equal to 5.500 cents per share, which will consist of a regular base distribution per share of 4.500 cents and a supplementary distribution per share of 1.000 cents and which is an increase from the monthly distribution of 5.334 cents per share currently paid by the Company. Thereafter, the distribution will be determined subject to the Combined Company’s distribution policy and such distributions could decrease after the twelve-month period.
