OFS Credit Company Declares Common and Preferred Stock Distributions

Jun 2, 2022

CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jun. 2, 2022-- OFS Credit Company (NASDAQ: OCCI) (“OFS Credit,” the “Company,” “we,” “us” or “our”), an investment company that primarily invests in collateralized loan obligation (“CLO”) equity and debt securities, today announced that on June 1, 2022 its Board of Directors declared a $0.55 per share quarterly distribution for common stockholders for the quarter ending July 31, 2022. The Board of Directors has also declared monthly cash distributions through January 31, 2023 for the Company’s 6.60% Series B Term Preferred Stock, 6.125% Series C Term Preferred Stock, 6.00% Series D Term Preferred Stock and 5.25% Series E Term Preferred Stock.

Common Stock Distribution

The distribution for common stockholders will be paid in cash or shares of our common stock at the election of stockholders. The total amount of cash distributed to all stockholders will be limited to 20% of the total distribution to be paid, excluding any cash paid for fractional shares. The remainder of the distribution (approximately 80%) will be paid in the form of shares of our common stock. The number of shares of common stock comprising the stock portion will be determined by using the volume weighted average price per share on the Nasdaq Capital Market on the three business-day period of July 13, 14 and 15, 2022. The exact distribution of cash and stock to any given stockholder will be dependent upon each stockholder’s election as well as elections of other stockholders, subject to the pro-rata limitation.

Management believes that the cash and stock distribution will allow the Company to strengthen its balance sheet and to be in position to capitalize on potential future investment opportunities.

The following schedule applies to the distribution for common stockholders of record on the close of business of the record date:

The amount, details and U.S. federal income tax consequences of the distribution will be described in the election form and accompanying materials that will be mailed to stockholders in connection with the distribution promptly following the record date. Election forms must be returned on or before 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time on July 14, 2022 to be effective. Stockholders who do not return a timely and properly completed election form before the election deadline will be deemed to have made an election to receive 100% of their distribution in stock.

Participants in the Company's dividend reinvestment plan will also receive an election form. The investment feature of the dividend reinvestment plan will be suspended for the common stock distribution and will be reinstated after the distribution has been completed.

Stockholders who hold their shares through a bank, broker or nominee, or in “street name” will not receive an election form directly from the Company and should receive information regarding the election process from their bank, broker or nominee. Street name holders should contact their bank, broker or nominee for additional information.
