Sierra Income Corporation Announces Reinstatement of Monthly Distribution

NEW YORK, Oct. 23, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Sierra Income Corporation ("Sierra" or the "Company") today announced that its Board of Directors has determined to reinstate the monthly distributions on the shares of the Company's common stock. The Board of Directors declared a series of monthly distributions for October, November and December 2020 of $0.01 per share.

On April 29, 2020, the Company announced the temporary suspension of its monthly distributions in the wake of the global economic disruption and near-term uncertainties caused by the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic. The Company believed that it was in the best long-term interests of its shareholders to maintain a conservative approach to its distribution policy during this volatile economic environment.

Sierra has closely monitored the performance of the Company's investments and has carefully considered all appropriate options. The Company believes its investment portfolio is stable and that it has sufficient liquidity and financial flexibility to manage through the pandemic. The Board recognized the importance of the distribution to shareholders and believes that reinstating the monthly distribution at this time is appropriate.

Shareholders of record as of each respective record date will be entitled to receive the distribution.  Below are the details for each respective distribution:
