June 13, 2019

To Our Stockholders:

We are pleased with our investment and financing activity since our October 2018 initial public offering (“IPO”) and we continue to see compelling investment opportunities. We seek to provide income for our stockholders and believe there are additional opportunities to benefit from greater scale, a lower cost of financing and continued portfolio diversification. Our adviser and affiliates continue to own 13% of our common stock.
Our Board of Directors has declared monthly $0.167 per share regular cash dividends for our common stockholders since our IPO. This monthly rate implies an annual rate of $2.00 per share, or 10.55%, based on our April 30, 2019 net asset value per share of $18.95.
We completed our IPO in early October 2018 by offering 2.5 million shares of common stock at $20 per share. Since our adviser paid all the fees associated with our IPO, we generated net proceeds of $50.0 million. In the same month, we closed investments totaling approximately $43 million. In the three months ended January 31, 2019, we invested an additional aggregate amount of approximately $7.6 million.
During March and April 2019, we issued $21.3 million of 6.875% Series A Term Preferred Stock due 2024 at a public offering price of $25.00 per share. We invested another $21.6 million in the three months ended April 30, 2019. It is important to note that we did not realize the full benefit of these investments in the quarter ended April 30, 2019, since the offering occurred in the second half of the quarter.
As of April 30, 2019, our portfolio consisted of $64.9 million of investments in the equity tranches of 29 CLOs, 25 of which have a reinvestment period ending in 2022 or beyond. We have focused on investing in CLO equity securities with lengthy reinvestment periods in order to maximize our cash flows.
Our investment adviser, OFS Capital Management, LLC, is registered as an investment adviser under the Investment Advisers Act of 1940, as amended, and, as of March 31, 2019, had approximately $2.2 billion of committed assets under management.
The CLOs in which we invest are collateralized by portfolios consisting primarily of below investment grade U.S. senior secured loans with a large number of distinct underlying borrowers across various industry sectors. We believe that there are limited options for public investors to access this unique asset class, through which our investors can gain exposure to a diversified pool of senior floating rate corporate loans with varying vintages.
We intend to invest in CLO securities that we believe have the potential to generate attractive risk-adjusted returns and to outperform other similar CLO securities. We believe our adviser is uniquely positioned to manage the Company given its expertise in both investing in structured credit (CLO equity and subordinated debt tranches) and managing CLOs, which entails underwriting corporate loans in the Broadly Syndicated loan market. We are excited about the outlook for the Company.



Bilal Rashid
Chairman and Chief Executive Officer

Statements other than those of historical facts included herein may constitute forward-looking statements and are not guarantees of future performance or results and involve a number of risks and uncertainties.

Important Information

This report is transmitted to the stockholders of OFS Credit Company, Inc. (“we,” “us,” “our” or the “Company”) and is furnished pursuant to certain regulatory requirements. This report and the information and views herein do not constitute investment advice, or a recommendation or an offer to enter into any transaction with the Company or any of its affiliates. This report is provided for informational purposes only, does not constitute an offer to sell securities of the Company and is not a prospectus. From time to time, the Company may have a registration statement relating to one or more of its securities on file with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”).

An investment in the Company is not appropriate for all investors. The investment program of the Company is speculative, entails substantial risk and includes investment techniques not employed by traditional mutual funds. An investment in the Company is not intended to be a complete investment program. Shares of closed-end investment companies, such as the Company, frequently trade at a discount from their net asset value (“NAV”), which may increase investors’ risk of loss. Past performance is not indicative of, or a guarantee of, future performance. The performance and certain other portfolio information quoted herein represents information as of April 30, 2019. Nothing herein should be relied upon as a representation as to the future performance or portfolio holdings of the Company. Investment return and principal value of an investment will fluctuate, and shares, when sold, may be worth more or less than their original cost. The Company’s performance is subject to change since the end of the period noted in this report and may be lower or higher than the performance data shown herein.

About OFS Credit Company, Inc.

The Company is a non-diversified, externally managed closed-end management investment company that has registered as an investment company under the Investment Company Act of 1940, or the “1940 Act.” Our investment adviser is OFS Capital Management, LLC, which we refer to as “OFS Advisor” or the “Advisor.” Our primary investment objective is to generate current income, with a secondary objective to generate capital appreciation. Under normal market conditions, we will invest at least 80% of our assets, or net assets plus borrowings, in floating rate credit instruments and other structured credit investments, including: (i) collateralized loan obligation (“CLO”) debt and subordinated (i.e., residual or equity) securities; (ii) traditional corporate credit investments, including leveraged loans and high yield bonds; (iii) opportunistic credit investments, including stressed and distressed credit situations and long/short credit investments; and (iv) other credit-related instruments. The CLOs in which we intend to invest are collateralized by portfolios consisting primarily of below investment grade U.S. senior secured loans with a large number of distinct underlying borrowers across various industry sectors. As part of the 80%, we may also invest in other securities and instruments that are related to these investments or that OFS Advisor believes are consistent with our investment objectives, including senior debt tranches of CLOs, vehicles that provide access to leveraged loans, and loan accumulation facilities. Loan accumulation facilities are short- to medium-term facilities often provided by the bank that will serve as the placement agent or arranger on a CLO transaction. Loan accumulation facilities typically incur leverage between three and six times prior to a CLO’s pricing. The CLO securities in which we will primarily seek to invest are unrated or rated below investment grade and are considered speculative with respect to timely payment of interest and repayment of principal. Unrated and below investment grade securities are also sometimes referred to as “junk” securities. In addition, the CLO equity and subordinated debt securities in which we will invest are highly leveraged (with CLO equity securities typically being leveraged 9 to 13 times), which magnifies our risk of loss on such investments.

Forward-Looking Statements
 
This report may contain “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Statements other than statements of historical facts included in this report may constitute forward-looking statements and are not guarantees of future performance or results and involve a number of risks and uncertainties. Actual results may differ materially from those in the forward-looking statements as a result of a number of factors, including those described in the Company’s filings with the SEC. The Company undertakes no duty to update any forward-looking statement made herein. All forward-looking statements speak only as of the date of this report.

(1) CLO indentures commonly require rating of the underlying collateral by nationally recognized rating agencies. Credit ratings shown are based on those assigned by Standard & Poor’s Rating Group, or “S&P,” for comparison and informational purposes. This data represents underlying portfolio characteristics of the Company’s CLO equity portfolio. We have presented the S&P ratings of the underlying collateral of the CLO vehicles in which we are invested at April 30, 2019 because we believe S&P generally provides greater rating coverage across the underlying loan portfolios.  Further information regarding S&P’s rating methodology and definitions may be found on its website (www.standardandpoors.com).

OFS Credit Company, Inc.
Schedule of Investments
April 30, 2019
(unaudited)



(1) These investments are generally subject to certain limitations on resale, and may be deemed to be "restricted securities" under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended.
(2) Structured finance investments, including income notes and subordinated notes, are considered CLO subordinated debt positions. CLO subordinated debt positions are entitled to recurring distributions which are generally equal to the remaining cash flow of payments made by underlying securities less contractual payments to debt holders and fund expenses. These securities are colloquially referred to as CLO equity.
(3) The effective yield is estimated based upon the current projection of the amount and timing of distributions in addition to the estimated amount of terminal principal payments. Effective yields for the Company's CLO subordinated debt positions are monitored and evaluated at each reporting date. The estimated yield and investment cost may ultimately not be realized. As of April 30, 2019, the Company's weighted-average effective yield on its aggregate CLO structured finance positions, based on current amortized cost, was 14.64%.
(4) Amortized cost reflects accretion of effective yield less any cash distributions received or entitled to be received from CLO structured finance investments.
(5) The fair value of all investments was determined using significant, unobservable inputs. See "Note 4. Fair Value of Financial Instruments".
(6) Maturity represents the contractual maturity date of the structured finance notes. Expected maturity and cash flows, not contractual maturity and cash flows, were utilized in deriving the effective yield of the investments.
(7) Security issued by an affiliate of named issuer.

See Notes to Financial Statements.


Note 1. Organization
OFS Credit Company, Inc., (the “Company”) is a Delaware corporation formed on September 1, 2017. The Company’s operations commenced on October 10, 2018 upon completion of the sale and issuance of 2,500,000 shares of common stock at an aggregate purchase price of $50,000,000 (the "Offering"). Prior to October 10, 2018, there had been no activity other than the sale and issuance of 5,000 shares of common stock at an aggregate purchase price of $100,000 to OFS Funding I, LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Orchard First Source Asset Management, LLC (“OFSAM”).
The Company is a non-diversified, externally managed, closed-end management investment company that has registered as an investment company under the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended ("1940 Act"); and has elected to be treated for U.S. federal income tax purposes, and intends to qualify annually hereafter, as a regulated investment company ("RIC") under the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the "Code"). The Company's investment adviser is OFS Capital Management, LLC, which the Company refers to as “OFS Advisor”. The Company's primary investment objective is to generate current income, with a secondary objective to generate capital appreciation. The Company invests its assets in floating rate credit instruments and other structured credit investments, including: (i) collateralized loan obligation (“CLO”) debt and subordinated/residual tranche securities ("Structured Finance Notes"); (ii) traditional corporate credit investments, including leveraged loans and high yield bonds; (iii) opportunistic credit investments, including stressed and distressed credit situations and long/short credit investments; and (iv) other credit-related instruments. The CLOs in which the Company invests are collateralized by portfolios consisting primarily of below investment grade U.S. senior secured loans with a large number of distinct underlying borrowers across various industry sectors.

Note 2. Basis of Presentation and Summary of Significant Accounting Policies
Basis of presentation: The Company prepares its financial statements in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America ("GAAP"), including the provision ASC Topic 946, Financial Services — Investment Companies, and the reporting requirements of the 1940 Act and Article 6 of Regulation S-X. In the opinion of management, the financial statements include all adjustments, consisting only of normal and recurring accruals and adjustments, necessary for fair presentation in accordance with GAAP.
Use of estimates: The preparation of financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ significantly from those estimates.
Cash: The Company’s cash is maintained with a member bank of the FDIC and, at times, such balances may be in excess of the FDIC insurance limits. Cash as of April 30, 2019, includes $4,299,692 held at US Bank National Association.
Investments: The Company applies fair value accounting in accordance with ASC Topic 820, which defines fair value, establishes a framework to measure fair value, and requires disclosures regarding fair value measurements. Fair value is defined as the price to sell an asset or transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date. Fair value is determined through the use of models and other valuation techniques, valuation inputs, and assumptions market participants would use to value the investment. Highest priority is given to prices for identical assets quoted in active markets (Level 1) and the lowest priority is given to unobservable valuation inputs (Level 3). The availability of observable inputs can vary significantly and is affected by many factors, including the type of product, whether the product is new to the market, whether the product is traded on an active exchange or in the secondary market, and the current market conditions. To the extent that the valuation is based on less observable or unobservable inputs, the determination of fair value requires more judgment. Accordingly, the degree of judgment exercised by the Company in determining fair value is greatest for financial instruments classified as Level 3 (i.e., those instruments valued using non-observable inputs), which comprise the entirety of the Company’s investments.
Changes to the valuation policy are reviewed by management and the Company’s board of directors (the "Board"). As the Company’s investments change, markets change, new products develop, and valuation inputs become more or less observable, the Company will continue to refine its valuation methodologies.
See Note 4 for additional disclosures of the Company’s fair value measurements of its financial instruments.
The Company may acquire Structured Finance Notes of CLO investment vehicles or invest in CLO loan accumulation facilities. In valuing such investments, the Company considers the indicative prices provided by a recognized industry pricing service as a primary source, and the implied yield of such prices, supplemented by actual trades executed in the market at or around period-end, as well as the indicative prices provided by broker-dealers. The Company also considers the operating

14

OFS Credit Company, Inc.
Notes to Financial Statements
(unaudited)
 



metrics of the CLO vehicle, including compliance with collateralization tests, concentrating limits, defaults, restructuring activity and prepayment rates on the underlying loans, as applicable. The Company engages a third-party valuation firm to provide assistance to the Company's Board in valuing our investments, which the Board evaluates and considers in determining fair value.
Investment Income
Interest income: Interest income from investments in Structured Finance Notes is recognized on the basis of the estimated effective yield to expected redemptions utilizing assumed cash flows in accordance with ASC Sub-topic 325-40, Beneficial Interests in Securitized Financial Assets. The Company monitors the expected cash flows from its Structured Finance Notes, and the effective yield is determined and updated periodically.
Net realized and unrealized gain or loss on investments: Investment transactions are reported on a trade-date basis. Unsettled trades as of the balance sheet date are included in payables for investments purchased. Realized gains or losses on investments are measured by the difference between the net proceeds from the disposition and the amortized cost basis of the investment on a specific-identification basis. Investments are valued at fair value as determined in good faith by the Board. The Company reports changes in the fair value of investments as net changes in unrealized appreciation/depreciation on investments in the statement of operations.
Deferred debt issuance costs: Deferred debt issuance costs represent fees and other direct incremental costs incurred in connection with the Company’s borrowings. Deferred debt issuance costs are presented as a direct reduction of the related debt liability on the consolidated statements of assets and liabilities. Deferred debt issuance costs are amortized to interest expense over the term of the related debt.
Interest expense: Interest expense is recognized on an accrual basis as incurred.
Income taxes: The Company has elected to be treated, and intends to qualify annually, as a RIC under Subchapter M of the Code. To qualify as a RIC, the Company must, among other things, meet certain source of income and asset diversification requirements, and timely distribute at least 90% of its investment company taxable income ("ICTI"), to its stockholders. The Company has made, and intends to continue to make, the requisite distributions to its stockholders, which generally relieves the Company from U.S. federal income taxes.
The Company may choose to retain a portion of ICTI in an amount less than that which would trigger U.S. federal income tax liability under Subchapter M of the Code; however, the Company may be liable for 4% excise tax on a portion of such income unless it timely distributes at least 98.2% of its ICTI to its stockholders. Excise tax liability is recognized when the Company determines its distributions from current year ICTI less than 98.2% of its estimated current year annual ICTI, as defined in the Code. The Company evaluates tax positions taken in the course of preparing its tax returns to determine whether they are “more-likely-than-not” to be sustained by the applicable tax authority. Tax benefits of positions not deemed to meet the more-likely-than-not threshold could result in greater and undistributed ICTI, income and excise tax expense, and, if involving multiple years, a re-assessment of the Company’s RIC status. GAAP requires recognition of accrued interest and penalties related to uncertain tax benefits as income tax expense. There were no uncertain income tax positions at April 30, 2019.
Distributions: Distributions to stockholders are recorded on the applicable record date. The timing of monthly distributions as well as the amount to be paid out as a distribution is determined by the Board each quarter. Distributions from net investment income and net realized gains are determined in accordance with the Code. Net realized capital gains, if any, are distributed at least annually, although the Company may decide to retain such capital gains for investment.
Distributions are reported as ordinary income, capital gains or return of capital in accordance with their tax character under GAAP. Net investment income determined accordance with tax regulations may differ from net investment income for financial reporting purposes. Differences may be permanent or temporary. Permanent differences result in a reclassification between capital accounts. Additionally, certain short-term capital gains may be reported as ordinary income. Distributions paid in excess of taxable net investment income and net realized gains are considered returns of capital to stockholders. Distributions paid by the Company in accordance with RIC requirements are subject to re-characterization for tax purposes.
Concentration of credit risk: Aside from its instruments in Structured Finance Notes and CLO loan accumulation facilities, financial instruments that potentially subject the Company to concentrations of credit risk consist principally of cash deposits at financial institutions. At various times during the year, the Company may exceed the federally insured limits. To mitigate this risk, the Company places cash deposits only with high credit quality institutions. Management believes the risk of loss related to our cash deposits is minimal. The amount of loss due to credit risk from investments in Structured Finance Notes, if underlying funds and managers fail to perform according to the terms of the indentures and collateral management agreements, and the collateral or other security for those instruments proved to be of no value to the Company is equal to the Company's recorded investment in Structured Finance Notes.

Note 3. Related Party Transactions
Investment Advisory and Management Agreement: OFS Advisor manages the day-to-day operations of, and provides investment advisory services to, the Company pursuant to an investment advisory and management agreement (the "Investment Advisory Agreement"). The Investment Advisory Agreement was approved by the Board on July 6, 2018 and became effective October 4, 2018. Under the terms of the Investment Advisory Agreement, OFS Advisor is responsible for: i) determining the composition of the portfolio, the nature and timing of the changes to the portfolio and the manner of implementing such changes; ii) identifying, evaluating and negotiating the structure of the investments made (including performing due diligence on prospective investments); iii) closing and monitoring the investments made and iv) providing other investment advisory, research and related services as required. OFS Advisor is a subsidiary of OFSAM and a registered investment advisor under the Investment Advisers Act of 1940, as amended (the "Advisers Act"). OFS Advisor’s services under the Investment Advisory Agreement are not exclusive, and both it and its members, officers and employees are free to furnish similar services to other persons and entities so long as its services to the Company are not impaired. OFS Advisor also serves as the investment adviser to CLO funds and other assets, including OFS Capital Corporation and Hancock Park Corporate Income, Inc.
OFS Advisor receives fees for providing services, consisting of two components: a base management fee ("Base Management Fee") and an incentive fee ("Incentive Fee"). The Base Management Fee is calculated and payable quarterly in arrears and equals an annual rate of 1.75% of the Company’s “Total Equity Base”, defined as the net asset value (“NAV”) of the Company’s shares of common stock and the paid-in capital of the Company’s preferred stock. Base Management Fees are paid by the holders of our shares of common stock and are not paid by holders of preferred stock, or the holders of any other types of securities that the Company may issue. Base Management Fees for any partial calendar quarter are prorated based on the number of days in such quarter. The Base Management Fee does not increase when the Company borrows funds, but will increase if the Company issues preferred stock.
For the period from October 10, 2018 (commencement of operations) through January 31, 2019, OFS Advisor agreed to waive the Base Management Fee, without recourse against or reimbursement by the Company.
The Incentive Fee is calculated and payable quarterly in arrears and equals 20% of the Company’s “Pre-Incentive Fee Net Investment Income” for the immediately preceding quarter, subject to a preferred return, or “hurdle,” and a “catch up” feature. No incentive fees are payable to OFS Advisor in respect of any capital gains. For this purpose, “Pre-Incentive Fee Net Investment Income” means interest income, dividend income and any other income (including any other fees, such as commitment, origination, structuring, diligence and consulting fees or other fees that the Company receives from an investment) accrued during the calendar quarter, minus the Company’s operating expenses for the quarter (including the Base Management Fee, expenses payable under the administrative services agreement to OFS Capital Services, LLC, ("OFS Services") and any interest expense and dividends paid on any issued and outstanding preferred stock, but excluding the Incentive Fee). Pre-Incentive Fee Net Investment Income includes accrued income that the Company has not yet received in cash, as well as any such amounts received (or accrued) in kind. Pre-Incentive Fee Net Investment Income does not include any capital gains or losses, and no incentive fees are payable in respect of any capital gains and no incentive fees are reduced in respect of any capital losses.
In calculating the Incentive Fee for any given calendar quarter, Pre-Incentive Fee Net Investment Income, expressed as a rate of return on the value of the Company’s net assets at the end of the immediately preceding calendar quarter, is compared to a hurdle of 2.00% of the Company’s net asset value per quarter (8.00% annualized) (the "Hurdle Rate"). For such purposes, the Company’s quarterly rate of return is determined by dividing its Pre-Incentive Fee Net Investment Income by its reported net assets as of the prior period end. The Company’s net investment income used to calculate this part of the incentive fee is also included in the calculation of the Total Equity Base which is used to calculate the Base Management Fee. The Incentive Fee with respect to the Company’s Pre-Incentive Fee Net Investment Income in each calendar quarter as follows: 
(A)
no Incentive Fee in any calendar quarter in which Pre-Incentive Fee Net Investment Income does not exceed the hurdle of 2.00% of NAV; 
(B)
100% of Pre-Incentive Fee Net Investment Income with respect to that portion of such Pre-Incentive Fee Net Investment Income, if any, that exceeds the hurdle but is less than 2.50% of NAV in any calendar quarter (10.00% annualized). The Company refers to this portion of the Pre-Incentive Fee Net Investment Income (which exceeds the hurdle but is less than 2.50% of our NAV) as the “catch-up.” The “catch-up” is meant to provide OFS Advisor with 20% of Pre-Incentive Fee Net Investment Income as if a hurdle did not apply if this net investment income meets or exceeds 2.50% of NAV in any calendar quarter; and
(C)
20.0% of that portion of the Company’s pre-Incentive Fee net investment income, if any, with respect to which the Rate of Return exceeds 2.50% in such quarter (10.0% annualized) is payable to the Advisor (that is, once the hurdle

16

OFS Credit Company, Inc.
Notes to Financial Statements

is reached and the catch-up is achieved, 20% of all Pre-Incentive Fee Net Investment Income thereafter is paid to the Advisor).
There shall be no accumulation of amounts on the Hurdle Rate from quarter to quarter, no claw back of amounts previously paid if the rate of return in any subsequent quarter is below the Hurdle Rate and no delay of payment if the Rate of Return in any prior quarters was below the Hurdle Rate. Incentive Fees shall be adjusted for any share issuances or repurchases during the calendar quarter, and Income-Based Fees for any partial quarter shall be prorated based on the number of days in such quarter.
Administration Agreement: OFS Services, an affiliate of OFS Advisor, provides the administrative services necessary for the Company to operate. OFS Services furnishes the Company with office facilities and equipment, necessary software licenses and subscriptions, and clerical, bookkeeping and record keeping services at such facilities pursuant to an administrative services agreement (the "Administration Agreement"). The Administration Agreement was approved by the Board on July 6, 2018 and became effective on October 4, 2018. Under the Administration Agreement, OFS Services performs, or oversees the performance of, the Company’s required administrative services, which include being responsible for the financial records that the Company is required to maintain and preparing reports to its stockholders and all other reports and materials required to be filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission or any other regulatory authority. In addition, OFS Services assists the Company in determining and publishing its net asset value, oversees the preparation and filing of its tax returns and the printing and dissemination of reports to its stockholders, and generally oversees the payment of the Company’s expenses and the performance of administrative and professional services rendered to the Company by others. Payment under the Administration Agreement is equal to an amount based upon the Company’s allocable portion (subject to the review and approval of the Board) of OFS Services’ overhead in performing its obligations under the Administration Agreement, including, but not limited to, rent, information technology services and the Company’s allocable portion of the cost of its officers, including its chief executive officer, chief financial officer, chief compliance officer, chief accounting officer, corporate secretary and their respective staffs. To the extent that OFS Services outsources any of its functions, the Company will pay the fees associated with such functions on a direct basis without profit to OFS Services. After the first two years of effectiveness, the Administration Agreement may be renewed annually with the approval of the Board, including a majority of our directors who are not “interested persons.” The Administration Agreement may be terminated by either party without penalty upon 60 days’ written notice to the other party.
Expenses recognized for the six months ended April 30, 2019 under agreements with OFS Advisor and OFS Services are presented below:

Other Financial Assets and Liabilities
GAAP requires disclosure of the fair value of financial instruments for which it is practical to estimate such value. The Company believes that the carrying amounts of its other financial instruments such as cash, receivables and payables approximate the fair value of such items due to the short maturity of such instruments.

In the normal course of business, the Company enters into contracts and agreements that contain a variety of representations and warranties that provide general indemnifications. The Company’s maximum exposure under these arrangements is unknown, as this would involve future claims that may be made against the Company that have not occurred. The Company believes the risk of any material obligation under these indemnifications to be low.

Preferred Stock Transactions
The Company's 6.875% Series A Term Preferred Stock is mandatorily redeemable at March 31, 2024. At any time on or after March 31, 2021, the Company may, in its sole option, redeem the outstanding shares of Series A Term Preferred Stock ("Term Preferred Shares") in whole or, from time to time, in part, out of funds legally available for such redemption, at the liquidation preference plus an amount equal to accumulated but unpaid dividends, if any, on such shares (whether or not earned or declared, but excluding interest on such dividends) to, but excluding, the date fixed for such redemption. The effective interest rate of the Term Preferred Shares including amortization of debt issuance costs is 7.95%.
During the six months ended April 30, 2019, the Board declared and paid the following distributions on Term Preferred Shares.

Note 7. Federal Income Taxes
The Company has elected, and intends to qualify annually hereafter, to be taxed as a RIC under Subchapter M of the Code. In order to maintain its status as a RIC, the Company will be required to distribute annually to its stockholders at least 90% of its ICTI. Additionally, to avoid a 4% U.S. federal excise tax on undistributed earnings the Company will be required to distribute each calendar year the sum of (i) 98% of its ordinary income for such calendar year (ii) 98.2% of its net capital gains for the period ending October 31 of that calendar year, and (iii) any income recognized, but not distributed, in preceding years and on which the Company paid no U.S. federal income tax. Maintenance of the Company's RIC status also requires adherence to certain source of income and asset diversification requirements provided under the Code.
The Company has met the source of income and asset diversification requirements as of April 30, 2019, and intends to continue meeting these requirements. The Company’s ICTI differs from the net increase in net assets resulting from operations primarily due to differences in income recognition for Structured Finance Notes for which GAAP requires recognition of an estimated constant yield whereas U.S. federal income tax rules require recognition of net investment income reported to the Company by the underlying CLO fund in the tax period reported, as well as differences in recognition of unrealized appreciation/depreciation of investments.
The tax-basis cost of investments and associated tax-basis gross unrealized appreciation (depreciation) inherent in the fair value of investments based on known and estimated GAAP-tax basis differences as of April 30, 2019, were as follows:

DISTRIBUTION REINVESTMENT PLAN
We have adopted a plan that provides for reinvestment of our distributions and other distributions on behalf of our common stockholders (the “DRIP”), unless a common stockholder elects to receive cash as provided below. As a result, if our Board authorizes, and we declare, a cash distribution, then our common stockholders who have not “opted out” of our DRIP will have their cash distribution automatically reinvested in additional shares of common stock, rather than receiving the cash distribution.
No action is required on the part of a registered common stockholder to have their cash distribution reinvested in our common stock. A registered common stockholder may elect to receive an entire distribution in cash by notifying American Stock Transfer & Trust Company, LLC, the plan administrator and our transfer agent and registrar, in writing so that such notice is received by the plan administrator no later than 10 days prior to the record date for distributions to common stockholders. The plan administrator will set up an account for common shares acquired through the DRIP for each common stockholder who has not elected to receive distributions in cash and hold such common shares in non-certificated form. Upon request by a common stockholder participating in the plan, received in writing not less than 10 days prior to the record date, the plan administrator will, instead of crediting common shares to the participant’s account, issue a certificate registered in the participant’s name for the number of whole common shares and a check for any fractional common share.
Those common stockholders whose common shares are held by a broker or other financial intermediary may receive distributions in cash by notifying their broker or other financial intermediary of their election.
We will use primarily newly issued common shares to implement the DRIP, whether our common shares are trading at a premium or at a discount to net asset value. However, we reserve the right to direct the plan administrator to purchase common shares in the open market in connection with our implementation of the plan. The number of common shares to be issued to a common stockholder is determined by dividing the total dollar amount of the distribution payable to such common stockholder by the market price per common share at the close of regular trading on the Nasdaq Capital Market on the valuation date for such distribution. Market price per common share on that date will be the closing price for such common shares on the Nasdaq Capital Market or, if no sale is reported for such day, at the average of their reported bid and asked prices. The number of common shares to be outstanding after giving effect to payment of the distribution cannot be established until the value per common share at which additional common shares will be issued has been determined and elections of our common stockholders have been tabulated.
There will be no brokerage charges or other charges to common stockholders who participate in the DRIP. The plan administrator’s fees will be paid by us. If a participant elects by written notice to the plan administrator to have the plan administrator sell part or all of the common shares held by the plan administrator in the participant’s account and remit the proceeds to the participant, the plan administrator is authorized to deduct a $15.00 transaction fee plus a $0.10 per common share brokerage commission from the proceeds.
Common stockholders who receive distributions in the form of common stock are subject to the same U.S. federal tax consequences as are common stockholders who elect to receive their distributions in cash; however, since their cash distributions will be reinvested, such common stockholders will not receive cash with which to pay any applicable taxes on reinvested distributions. A common stockholder’s basis for determining gain or loss upon the sale of common stock received in a distribution from us will be equal to the total dollar amount of the distribution payable to the common stockholder. Any common stock received in a distribution will have a new holding period for tax purposes commencing on the day following the day on which the common shares are credited to the U.S. common stockholder’s account.
Participants may terminate their accounts under the DRIP by notifying the plan administrator via its website at www.amstock.com, by filling out the transaction request form located at the bottom of their statement and sending it to the plan administrator. Such termination will be effective immediately if the participant’s notice is received by the plan administrator not less than 10 days prior to any distribution record date; otherwise, such termination will be effective only with respect to any subsequent distribution. The DRIP may be terminated by us upon notice in writing mailed to each participant at least 30 days prior to any record date for the payment of any distribution by us. All correspondence concerning the DRIP should be directed to the plan administrator by mail American Stock Transfer & Trust Company, LLC, P.O. Box 922, Wall Street Station, New York, New York 10269, or by the plan administrator’s Interactive Voice Response System at (800) 937-5449.
If a common stockholder withdraws or the plan is terminated, such common stockholder will receive the number of whole common shares in their account under the plan and a cash payment for any fraction of a common share in their account.
If a common stockholder holds common shares with a brokerage firm that does not participate in the plan, such common stockholder will not be able to participate in the plan and any distribution reinvestment may be effected on different terms than those described above. Consult your financial advisor for more information.

BOARD APPROVAL OF THE INVESTMENT ADVISORY AGREEMENT
At an in-person organizational meeting of our Board held on July 6, 2018, our Board unanimously voted to approve the Investment Advisory Agreement. In reaching a decision to approve the Investment Advisory Agreement, the Board reviewed a significant amount of information and considered and concluded, among other things:
The nature, quality and extent of the advisory and other services to be provided to us by OFS Advisor, including the responses in a questionnaire regarding OFS Advisor’s investment process and OFS Advisor’s policies and guidelines currently in place to monitor and manage the risk and volatility associated with the Company’s portfolio, and the qualifications and abilities of the professional personnel of OFS Advisor and the compensation structure for such personnel, and concluded that such services are satisfactory;
The investment performance of OFS Advisor;
Comparative data with respect to advisory fees or similar expenses paid by other management investment companies with similar investment objectives, and concluded that the total advisory fees paid by the Company to OFS Advisor were reasonable;
Our projected operating expenses and expense ratio compared to management investment companies with similar investment objectives, and concluded that our projected operating expenses were reasonable;
Any existing and potential sources of indirect income to OFS Advisor from their relationship with the Company and the profitability of that relationship, and concluded that OFS Advisor’s profitability was not excessive with respect to us;
The services to be performed and the personnel performing such services under the Investment Advisory Agreement, and concluded that the services to be performed and the personnel performing such services were satisfactory;
The organizational capability and financial condition of OFS Advisor and its affiliates, and concluded that the organizational capability and financial condition of OFS Advisor were reasonable; and
The possibility of obtaining similar services from other third-party service providers or through an internally managed structure, and concluded that our current externally managed structure with OFS Advisor as our investment advisor was satisfactory.
Based on the information reviewed and the discussions detailed above, the Board, including all of the directors who are not “interested persons” as defined in the 1940 Act, concluded that the fees payable to OFS Advisor pursuant to the Investment Advisory Agreement were reasonable, and comparable to the fees paid by other management investment companies with similar investment objectives, in relation to the services to be provided. The Board did not assign relative weights to the above factors or the other factors considered by it. Individual members of the Board may have given different weights to different factors.

The Board of Directors
We have three classes of directors, currently consisting of one Class I director, two Class II directors and two Class III directors. At each annual meeting of stockholders, directors are elected for a full term of three years to succeed those whose terms are expiring. The terms of the three classes are staggered in a manner so that only one class is elected by stockholders annually.
The Board currently consists of five members, Messrs. Rashid and Cerny, Robert J. Cresci, Kathleen M. Griggs and Romita Shetty. On May 23, 2019, the Board of Directors appointed Robert J. Cresci as a director to replace Wolfgang Schubert, who resigned from the Board of Directors as of May 23, 2019.
The term of one class expires each year commencing with the 2019 annual meeting. The term of Mr. Rashid expires at 2019 annual meeting; the terms of Ms. Shetty and Mr. Cresci expire at the 2020 annual meeting; and the terms of Ms. Griggs and Mr. Cerny expire at the 2021 annual meeting. Subsequently, each class of directors will stand for election at the conclusion of its respective term. Such classification may prevent replacement of a majority of the directors for up to a two-year period.

Conflicts of Interest

Subject to certain 1940 Act restrictions on co-investments with affiliates, OFS Advisor will offer us the right to participate in investment opportunities that it determines are appropriate for us in view of our investment objective, policies and strategies and other relevant factors. Such offers will be subject to the exception that, in accordance with OFS Advisor’s allocation policy, we might not participate in each individual opportunity but will, on an overall basis, be entitled to participate fairly and equitably over time with other entities managed by OFS Advisor and its affiliates.

To the extent that we compete with entities managed by OFS Advisor or any of its affiliates for a particular investment opportunity, OFS Advisor will allocate investment opportunities across the entities for which such opportunities are appropriate, consistent with (i) its internal allocation policy, (ii) the requirements of the Advisers Act, and (iii) certain restrictions under the 1940 Act and rules thereunder regarding co-investments with affiliates. OFS Advisor’s allocation policy is intended to ensure that we may generally share fairly and equitably with other investment funds or other investment vehicles

30



managed by OFS Advisor or its affiliates in investment opportunities that OFS Advisor determines are appropriate for us in view of our investment objective, policies and strategies and other relevant factors, particularly those involving a security with limited supply or involving differing classes of securities of the same issuer that may be suitable for us and such other investment funds or other investment vehicles. Under this allocation policy, if two or more investment vehicles with similar or overlapping investment strategies are in their investment periods, an available opportunity will be allocated based on the provisions governing allocations of such investment opportunities in the relevant organizational, offering or similar documents, if any, for such investment vehicles. In the absence of any such provisions, OFS Advisor will consider the following factors and the weight that should be given with respect to each of these factors:
    
investment guidelines and/or restrictions, if any, set forth in the applicable organizational, offering or similar documents for the investment vehicles;
The status of tax restrictions and tests and other regulatory restrictions and tests;
risk and return portfolio of the investment vehicles;
suitability/priority of a particular investment for the investment vehicles;
if applicable, the targeted position size of the investment for the investment vehicles;
level of available cash for investment with respect to the investment vehicles;
total amount of funds committed to the investment vehicles; and
the age of the investment vehicles and the remaining term of their respective investment periods, if any.

When not relying on the Order (defined below), priority as to opportunities will generally be given to clients that are in their “ramp-up” period over the accounts that are outside their ramp-up period but still within their investment or re-investment periods. However, application of one or more of the factors listed above, or other factors determined to be relevant or appropriate, may result in the allocation of an investment opportunity to a fund no longer in its ramp-up period over a fund that is still within its ramp-up period. In situations where co-investment with such other accounts is not permitted or appropriate, such as when there is an opportunity to invest in different securities of the same issuer, OFS Advisor will need to decide which account will proceed with the investment. The decision by OFS Advisor to allocate an opportunity to another entity could cause us to forego an investment opportunity that we otherwise would have made.

Co-Investment With Affiliates. In certain instances, we may co-invest on a concurrent basis with other accounts managed by OFS Advisor or certain of its affiliates, subject to compliance with applicable regulations and regulatory guidance and our written allocation procedures. On October 12, 2016, OFS Advisor and certain funds that it manages received exemptive relief from the SEC, which we are able to rely on, that permits us to co-invest in portfolio companies with certain other funds managed by OFS Advisor provided we comply with certain conditions (the "Order"). Pursuant to the Order, we are generally permitted to co-invest with such funds if a “required majority” (as defined in Section 57(o) of the 1940 Act) of our independent directors make certain conclusions in connection with a co-investment transaction, including that (1) the terms of the transactions, including the consideration to be paid, are reasonable and fair to us and our stockholders and do not involve overreaching of us or our stockholders on the part of any person concerned and (2) the transaction is consistent with the interests of our stockholders and is consistent with our investment objective and strategies. A copy of our application for exemptive relief, including all of the conditions, and the related order are available on the SEC’s website at www.sec.gov.

I.
GENERAL (CODE OF ETHICS)

A.
INTRODUCTION

The Code of Ethics (“Code”) has been jointly adopted by OFS Capital Management and OFS CLO Management, LLC (collectively, “OFS Adviser” or the "Firm”)and certain entities that are controlled by or under common control with OFS Capital Management (“Affiliates”), as determined from time to time by Senior Management, and each of OFS Capital Corporation, Hancock Park Corporate Income, Inc., OFS Credit Company, Inc. and any investment company that OFS Adviser may sponsor and/or manage from time to time (each, an “OFS Fund” and collectively, “OFS Funds”) in order to establish applicable policies, guidelines and procedures that promote ethical practices and conduct by all Supervised Persons of OFS Adviser, including, but not limited to, certain employees, interns, temporary employees, principals and others designated by Compliance, and that prevent violations of applicable laws including the Investment Advisers Act of 1940, as amended (“Advisers Act”) and the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended (“Company Act”).1    “Supervised Person” is defined as any director, officer, member or employee (or other person occupying similar status or performing similar functions) of OFS Adviser or any other person who provides investment advice on behalf of OFS Adviser and is subject to the supervision and control of OFS Adviser 2 . Unless instructed otherwise or approved by the Compliance Department, temporary employees and consultants will generally be deemed a Supervised Person if the employee’s or consultant’s work assignment or engagement exceeds ninety (90) calendar days. This Code is available to all Supervised Persons on OFS Adviser’s automated compliance system. All Supervised Persons must read it carefully and must verify at least annually (and at such other times that a Compliance Officer may request) that he or she has read, understands, and agrees to abide by the Code.
The Code is designed to address conflicts of interest that may arise in your personal dealings and those in which you engage on behalf of the Firm and its Advisory Clients3. The following policies comprise the Code and address certain of these conflicts:

1 The Code is adopted by OFS Adviser and each OFS Fund pursuant to and in accordance with the requirements of each of Rules 204A-1 and 206(4)-7 under the Advisers Act and Rules 17j-1 and 38a-1under the Company Act.
2 The Chief Compliance Officer or his/her designee may consider any director, officer, member, principal or employee, including, but not limited to, intern and temporary employees, of an Affiliate of OFS Adviser to be a Supervised Person of OFS Adviser if the Chief Compliance Officer determines that such person performs services for OFS Adviser, through any staffing or similar agreement, such that the person would constitute a Supervised Person if such person was a director, officer, member, employee, intern or temporary employee of OFS Adviser. The Compliance Department maintains a list of all such persons and whether each person is (1) a Supervised Person and (2) an Access Person and will notify each person of relevant requirements. The majority of OFS Adviser’s personnel are employees of Orchard First Source Capital, Inc., an Affiliate of OFS Adviser..
3 Advisory Client means any individual, group of individuals, partnership, trust, company or other investment fund entity for whom OFS Adviser acts as investment adviser. For example, any OFS Fund is an Advisory Client. For the avoidance of doubt, Advisory Clients include public and private investment funds, including comingled funds and single investor funds (“Funds”) and managed accounts managed by OFS Adviser, but do not include the underlying individual investors in such Funds (“Investors”), although certain protections afforded to Advisory Clients pursuant to this Code do extend to Investors through Rule 206(4)-8 of the Advisers Act.





the Personal Investment Policy,
the Inside Information Policy,
the Gifts and Entertainment Policy,
Political Activity Policy,
Outside Affiliations Policy,
Anti-Corruption Policy,
CIM Computer Acceptable Use Policy; and
Personal Use of the Firm’s Resources and Relationships Policy

OFS Adviser and each OFS Fund require that all Supervised Persons observe the applicable standards of care set forth in these policies and not seek to evade the provisions of the Code in any way, including through indirect acts by Related Persons or other associates.

All activities involving the OFS Funds are subject to the Company Act and the policies and procedures adopted by each OFS Fund in connection therewith as set forth in the Rule 38a-1 Compliance Manual (“38a-1 Manual”) for each OFS Fund. The obligations set forth in the Code and the 38a-1 Manual are in addition to and not in lieu of the policies and procedures set forth in the Firm’s Employee Handbook and any other Compliance Policies adopted by OFS Adviser in respect of the conduct of its business.





B.
STATEMENT OF STANDARDS OF BUSINESS CONDUCT

As a fundamental mandate, OFS Adviser and each OFS Fund demand the highest standards of ethical conduct and care from all Supervised Persons and OFS Fund Directors. Supervised Persons and OFS Fund Directors must abide by this basic business standard and must not take inappropriate advantage of their position with the Firm or OFS Fund. Each Supervised Person and OFS Fund Director is under a duty to exercise his or her authority and responsibility for the primary benefit of our Advisory Clients, including the OFS Funds, and the Firm, and may not have outside interests or engage in activities that inappropriately conflict or appear to conflict with the interests of the Firm or its Advisory Clients, including the OFS Funds. Examples of such conflicts include:

engaging a service provider on behalf of Advisory Clients or the Firm in which you or your Related Person has a financial interest;

accepting extravagant gifts or entertainment from a potential service provider to the Firm;

making charitable donations at the request of a prospective Advisory Client when the Advisory Client will directly benefit from such donation;

contributing to the election campaign of a government official or candidate who has, or will have if elected, the authority to appoint pension plan board members who are responsible for selecting investment advisers for such pension plan;

purchasing an interest in a company or property that you know the Firm is targeting for investment; and

assuming an outside position with a company that competes directly with the Firm.

The above list of examples is not exhaustive, and you, as a Supervised Person or OFS Fund Director, are responsible for assessing the unique facts and circumstances of your activities for potential conflicts and consulting with OFS Adviser’s Legal and Compliance Departments prior to engaging in such activities.
Each Supervised Person and OFS Fund Director must avoid circumstances or conduct that adversely affect or that appear to adversely affect OFS Adviser or its Advisory Clients, including the OFS Funds. Every Supervised Person and OFS Fund Director must comply with applicable federal securities laws and must promptly report suspected violations of the Code to a Compliance Officer. OFS Adviser strictly prohibits retaliation against any individual reporting suspected violations, who, in good faith, seeks help or reports known or suspected violations, including Supervised Persons who assist in making a report or who cooperate in an investigation (see Section I.E. Reporting and Sanctions).
GENERAL GUIDELINES
1.
Supervised Persons and OFS Directors may not employ any device, scheme or artifice to defraud an OFS Fund or any Advisory Client, make any untrue statement of a material fact to an OFS Fund or any Advisory Client, or omit to state a material fact necessary in order to make the statements not misleading, engage in any act, practice or course of business that operates or would operate as a fraud or deceit upon an OFS Fund or any other Advisory Client,




engage in any manipulative practice with respect to an OFS Fund or any other Advisory Client, or engage in any manipulative practice with respect to Securities, including price manipulation.

2.
Except with the prior approval of a Compliance Officer, in consultation with a Supervised Person’s supervisor and/or Senior Management, a Supervised Person may not act as a director, officer, general partner, managing member, principal, proprietor, consultant, agent, representative, trustee or employee of any unaffiliated public or private entity or business other than an OFS Fund, OFS Adviser, or an Affiliate of OFS Adviser. (See Section IV)

3.
All Supervised Persons must disclose to OFS Adviser and their respective OFS Fund any interests they may have in any entity that is not affiliated with OFS Adviser or any OFS Fund and that has a known business relationship with OFS Adviser, an Affiliate of OFS Adviser or any OFS Fund.

4.
Except with the prior approval of a Compliance Officer, and as specifically permitted by law, Supervised Persons may not have a material direct or indirect interest (e.g., as principal, co-principal, agent, member, partner, or material shareholder or beneficiary) in any transaction that conflicts with the interests of OFS Adviser or its Advisory Clients.

5.
Except with the prior approval of a Compliance Officer, Access Persons may not invest in any Initial Public Offering (“IPO”) or Private Placement4 (including hedge funds and other private investment vehicles). (See Section II.C.2) This requirement also applies to Private Placements that are Advisory Clients of OFS Adviser, such as OFS Credit Income Fund, L.P.

6.
No Supervised Person, except in the course of the rightful exercise of his or her job responsibilities, shall reveal to any other person, information regarding any Advisory Client or any investment or Security transaction being considered, recommended or executed on behalf of any Advisory Client. (See Section III.)

7.
No OFS Fund Director, except in the course of the rightful exercise of his or her board responsibilities, shall reveal to any other person information regarding any OFS Fund or any “Portfolio Company”, defined as any legal entity in which an OFS Fund or another Advisory Client holds an investment regardless of whether or not the investment is a Security, or any investment or Security transaction being considered, recommended, or executed on behalf of any other Advisory Client. (See Section III.)

8.
No Supervised Person shall make any recommendation concerning the purchase or sale of any Security by an Advisory Client without disclosing, to the extent known, the interest of the Firm or any Supervised Person, if any, in such Security or the issuer thereof, including, without limitation (a) any direct or indirect beneficial ownership of any Security of such issuer; (b) any contemplated transaction by such person in such Security; and (c) any present or proposed relationship with respect to such Security, issuer or its affiliates.






4. Private Placement is defined as an offering that is exempt from registration under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), pursuant to section 4(2) or section 4(5) or pursuant to rule 504, rule 505 or rule 506 thereunder.





9.
Subject to certain exceptions permitted by applicable law, each OFS Fund shall not, directly or indirectly extend, maintain or arrange for the extension of credit or the renewal of an extension of credit, in the form of a personal loan to any officer or director of the Fund. Any Supervised Person or person who serves as a director on the board of directors of any OFS Fund (“OFS Fund Director”) who becomes aware that their respective OFS Fund may be extending or arranging for the extension of credit to a director or officer, or person serving an equivalent function, should notify and consult with a Compliance Officer to ensure that the proposed extension of credit complies with this Code and the applicable law.

10.
No Supervised Person shall engage in insider trading (as described in the “Inside Information Policy” in Section III.) whether for his or her own benefit or for the benefit of others.

11.
No Supervised Person may communicate material, nonpublic information concerning any Security, or its issuer, or Portfolio Company to anyone unless it is properly within his or her duties to do so. No OFS Fund Director may communicate material, nonpublic information concerning any Security of an issuer in which the OFS Fund Director knows, or, in the course of his or her duties as a director, should have known, OFS Fund has a current investment, or with respect to which an investment or Security is Being Considered for Purchase or Sale by any OFS Fund (“OFS Fund Portfolio Security”) or Portfolio Company of their respective OFS Fund to anyone unless it is properly within his or her duties to do so. A Security is “Being Considered for Purchase or Sale” when a recommendation to purchase or sell the Security has been made and communicated and, with respect to the person making the recommendation, when such person seriously considers making such a recommendation. In all cases, a Security which has been recommended for purchase or sale pursuant to an Investment Committee memorandum, presentation, due diligence package or other formal Investment Committee recommendation shall be deemed to be a Security Being Considered for Purchase or Sale.

12.
Each Supervised Person shall complete a compliance questionnaire (the “Regulatory Compliance Disclosure”) prior to employment and annually thereafter, within the prescribed deadline, as provided by the Compliance Department, (“Compliance Due Date”) through the Firm’s automated compliance system. Each Supervised Person shall supplement the Regulatory Compliance Disclosure, as necessary, to reflect any material changes between annual disclosures filings, and must immediately notify Compliance if any of the conditions addressed in the Regulatory Compliance Disclosure become applicable to such Supervised Person.

13.
Every Supervised Person must avoid any activity that might give rise to a question as to whether the Firm’s objectivity as a fiduciary has been compromised. (See Section V)

14.
Access Persons are required to disclose to a Compliance Officer the existence of any account that has the ability to hold any Reportable Securities (e.g., brokerage or trading accounts and IRAs), as well the account’s holdings (immediately upon commencement of employment (which shall include the accounts and holdings of the Access Person’s Related Persons), and in no case later than ten (10) calendar days beyond the Access Person’s start date. Such Accounts must be disclosed even if they contain a zero balance or non-Reportable Securities. Access Persons are required to disclose accounts that are Managed Accounts; however, disclosing the holdings of such Managed Accounts is not required. With limited exceptions provided herein, Access Persons are also required to maintain Non-Managed Accounts capable




of holding Reportable Securities with Approved Brokers, which have contracted to provide holdings and transaction reporting to the Compliance Department on the Firm’s automated compliance system. Access Persons must confirm the accuracy and completeness of the information so provided to the Firm on a quarterly and annual basis by the Compliance Due Date. Initial and quarterly reports must disclose the existence of all accounts, even if none of those accounts at the time hold a Reportable Security. (See Section II).

15.
The intentional creation, transmission or use of false rumors is inconsistent with the Firm’s commitment to high ethical standards and may violate the antifraud provisions of the Advisers Act, among other securities laws of the United States. Accordingly, no Supervised Person may maliciously create, disseminate or use false rumors. This prohibition covers oral and written communications, including the use of electronic communication media such as e-mail, PIN messages, instant messages, tweets, text messages, blogs and chat rooms. Because of the difficulty identifying “false” rumors, the Firm discourages Supervised Persons from creating, passing or using any rumor.

C.
PERIODIC COMPLIANCE REPORTING AND TRAINING

Each Supervised Person is required to complete all assigned compliance certifications and disclosures by the Compliance Due Date. Absent an exemption granted to you by a Compliance Officer, failure to complete such items by the Compliance Due Date will likely constitute a violation of this Code and may result in the imposition of sanctions.
The Compliance Department also presents and/or coordinates mandatory training on this Code at least annually, and may assign mandatory or voluntary training on the Code or other Firm policies at such other times as the Compliance Department deems appropriate. Failure to attend or complete mandatory training sessions, unless excused in writing by a Compliance Officer, will likely constitute a violation of this Code and may lead to the imposition of sanctions. The Compliance Department maintains an attendance or completion list, as appropriate, of all Supervised Persons assigned to such training sessions.
D.
ACKNOWLEDGMENT

Each Supervised Person must certify upon commencement of employment, at least annually thereafter, and at such other times as a Compliance Officer may determine, that he or she has read, understands, is subject to and has complied with the Code. Any Supervised Person who has any questions about the applicability of the Code to a particular situation should promptly consult with a Compliance Officer.
E.
REPORTING AND SANCTIONS

While compliance with the provisions of the Code is anticipated, Supervised Persons should be aware that, in response to any violations, the Firm (or any OFS Fund, as applicable) shall take any action deemed necessary under the circumstances including, but without limitation, the imposition of appropriate sanctions. These sanctions may include, among others, verbal or written warnings, the reversal of trades, reallocation of trades to client accounts, disgorgement of profits, suspension or termination of personal trading or investment privileges, reduction in bonus or bonus opportunity, payment of a monetary fine payable to a recognized charitable organization of the Supervised Person’s choice or, in more serious cases, suspension or termination of employment and/or the making of any civil or criminal referral to the appropriate governmental authorities.




Moreover, Supervised Persons are required to promptly report any violation(s) of this Code, any other compliance policies adopted by OFS Adviser or the Rule 38a-1 Manual adopted by any OFS Fund (collectively “Compliance Policies”), or any activity that may adversely affect the Firm’s or any OFS Fund’s business or reputation, to a Compliance Officer. The Compliance Department shall maintain a record of all violations of the Code and any corrective actions taken. Supervised Persons are encouraged to identify themselves when reporting such conduct, but they may also report anonymously. Reporting should be made through a letter to a Compliance Officer or via the telephonic and electronic reporting procedures detailed in the Firm’s “Whistleblower Hotline Information” attached hereto as Attachment A. Further, all activities reported by Supervised Persons will be treated anonymously and confidentially (to the extent reasonably practicable) in order to encourage Supervised Persons to come forward with perceived problems. The Firm and each OFS Fund are committed to a full, unbiased review of any matter(s) raised.
The Firm and OFS Fund prohibit retaliation against any such personnel who, in good faith, seeks help or reports known or suspected violations (even if the reported event is determined not to be a violation), including personnel who assist in making a report or who cooperate in an investigation. Any Supervised Person who engages in retaliatory conduct will be subject to disciplinary action, up to and including termination of employment.
F.
ADDITIONAL RESTRICTIONS AND WAIVERS BY OFS ADVISER AND THE OFS FUNDS

From time to time, a Compliance Officer may determine that it is in the best interests of the Firm to subject certain Supervised Persons or other persons (i.e., consultants and third party service providers) to restrictions or requirements in addition to those set forth in the Code. In such cases, the affected persons will be notified of the additional restrictions or requirements and will be required to abide by them as if they were included in the Code. In addition, under extraordinary circumstances, the Compliance Officer may grant a waiver of certain of these restrictions or requirements contained in the Code on a case by case basis. In order for a Supervised Person to rely on any such waiver, it must be granted in writing.
Any waiver of the requirements of the Code for executive officers of any OFS Fund or any OFS Fund Director may be made only by the respective OFS Fund’s board of directors or a committee of the board, and must be promptly disclosed to shareholders of the OFS Fund as required by law or relevant exchange rule or regulation.
The Compliance Department maintains a log of all requests for exceptions and waivers and the determinations made with respect to such requests.
G.
REVIEW BY THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS OF EACH OFS FUND

The CCO will prepare a written report to be considered by the board of directors of each OFS Fund (1) quarterly, that identifies any violations of the Code with respect to each OFS Fund requiring significant remedial action during the past quarter and the nature of that remedial action; and (2) annually, that (a) describes any issues arising under the Code since the last written report to the Board, including, but not limited to, information about material violations of the Code and sanctions imposed in response to such violations, and (b) identifies any recommended changes in existing restrictions or procedures based upon each OFS Fund’s and/or OFS Adviser’s experience under the Code, then-prevailing industry practices, or developments in applicable laws or regulations, and (c) certifies that each OFS Fund and OFS Adviser have each adopted procedures reasonably designed to prevent violations of the Code, and of the federal securities laws in accordance with the requirements of the Advisers Act and the Company Act.




The board of directors of each OFS Fund will also be asked to approve any material changes to the Code within six (6) months after the adoption of such change, based on a determination that the Code, as amended, contains policies and procedures reasonably designed to prevent violations of the federal securities laws.
H.
CCO REPORTING

The CCO will prepare a written report to be considered by Senior Management no less than annually, that (a) describes any issues arising under the Code since the last written report, including, but not limited to, information about material violations of the Code and sanctions imposed in response to such violations, and (b) identifies any recommended changes in existing restrictions or procedures based upon OFS Adviser’s experience under the Code, then-prevailing industry practices, or developments in applicable laws or regulations.
The CCO of each OFS Fund, as applicable, prepares a written report to be considered by the relevant OFS Fund Directors no less than annually, that (a) describes any issues arising under the Compliance Policies since the last written report, including, but not limited to, information about material violations of the Compliance Policies and sanctions imposed in response to such violations, and (b) identifies any recommended changes in existing restrictions or procedures based upon each OFS Fund’s and/or OFS Adviser’s experience under the Compliance Policies, then-prevailing industry practices, or developments in applicable laws or regulations.
I.
CCO AND COMPLIANCE OVERSIGHT

All requirements and prohibitions under this Code are likewise applicable to the CCO and all Compliance Department employees. For the purpose of addressing actual and perceived conflicts of interest and potential self-dealing, any report and pre-approval request submitted by such employees is to be reviewed, and approved as applicable, by the employee’s supervisor or the CCO. Reports and pre-approval requests from the CCO will be reviewed, and approved as applicable, by CIM’s Chief Legal Counsel (“CLC). Under no circumstances should the CCO or any Compliance Department employee review his/her own report or approve his/her own pre-approval request.

Potential Code violations by the CCO must be reviewed by the CLC. Potential Code violations by a Compliance Department employee must be reviewed by the CCO. If it is determined that a violation occurred, the CCO or employee will be subject to the applicable sanction(s) under the Code.
J.
CONFIDENTIALITY

Personnel will be given access to and become acquainted with highly confidential information about the Firm such as its financial information, business plans and strategies, investment strategies and opportunities, affiliated companies and internal policies and practices, as well as information relating to past, current and prospective Advisory Clients and Portfolio Companies.

K.
CONFLICT WITH EMPLOYEE HANDBOOK

Where this Code addresses policies that are also addressed in other corporate policies or in the Employee Handbook of Orchard First Source Capital, Inc. or another Affiliate by which a Supervised Person is employed, the policies herein are intended to augment, and not to supersede or replace, the relevant corporate or Employee Handbook policies. In the event of any conflict that would prohibit a Supervised Person from complying with both sets of policies, the Supervised Person should address the conflict to a Compliance Officer.





II.
PERSONAL INVESTMENT POLICY

A.
INTRODUCTION AND DEFINITIONS

The Advisers Act, specifically Rule 204A-1, requires “Access Persons” of a registered investment adviser, such as OFS Adviser, to provide periodic reports regarding transactions and holdings in Reportable Securities beneficially owned by Access Persons. Rule 17j-1 under the Company Act requires similar reports for “Access Persons” to a Fund, such as each of the OFS Funds.
The purpose of this Personal Investment Policy and related procedures is to advise Access Persons of their ethical and legal responsibilities with respect to Securities transactions that may involve (i) possible conflicts of interest with Advisory Clients, including the OFS Funds, and (ii) the possession and use of material, nonpublic information (“MNPI”). It is a violation of the Code for any Access Person of OFS Adviser or any OFS Fund to use their knowledge concerning a trade, pending trade, or contemplated trade or investment by an OFS Fund or any other Advisory Client to profit personally, directly or indirectly, as a result of such transaction, including by purchasing or selling such Securities.
The following definitions are utilized within this Personal Investments Policy and more broadly within the rest of the Code.
“Access Person” with respect to OFS Adviser means (a) any Supervised Person who (i) has access to nonpublic information regarding any Advisory Client’s purchase or sale of Securities, or nonpublic information regarding the portfolio holdings of any Advisory Client (including any OFS Fund); or (ii) is involved in making Securities recommendations to Advisory Clients (including any OFS Fund), or has access to such recommendations that are nonpublic; and (b) all directors, officers and partners of OFS Adviser.5 
For purposes of the Code, all Supervised Persons are generally considered to be Access Persons of OFS Adviser, and all Access Persons of OFS Adviser are considered to be Access Persons of each OFS Fund. OFS Fund Directors are also considered Access Persons of each OFS Fund but are generally exempt from Recordkeeping, Reporting and Statement of Restrictions requirements of Access Persons included in this Code, except as described in Section II.D below.
“Affiliate Account” means: (i) the personal Securities account of an Access Person or the account of any Related Person in which Reportable Securities may be held or transacted; (ii) any such Securities account for which any Access Person serves as custodian, trustee, or otherwise acts in a fiduciary capacity or with respect to which an Access Person either has authority to make investment decisions or from time to time makes investment recommendations, except with respect to Advisory Clients; (iii) any such Securities account of any person, partnership, joint venture, trust or other entity in which an Access Person or his or her Related Person has Beneficial Ownership or other Beneficial Interest; and (iv) and accounts containing Reportable Funds of which an Access Person or his or her Related Person has Beneficial Ownership or Beneficial Interest.


5 The Chief Compliance Officer or his/her designee may consider any director, officer, principal, member or employee, including, but not limited to, intern and temporary employees, of an Affiliate of OFS Adviser to be a Supervised Person, and Access Person if appropriate, of OFS Adviser if the Chief Compliance Officer determines that such person performs services for OFS Adviser, through any staffing or similar agreement, such that the person would constitute a Supervised Person or Access Person if such person was a director, officer, member, principal or employee, including an intern or temporary employee, of OFS Adviser. The Compliance Department will maintain a list of all such persons and whether each person is (1) a Supervised Person and (2) an Access Person and will notify each person of relevant requirements. The majority of OFS Adviser’s personnel are employees of Orchard First Source Capital, Inc., an Affiliate of OFS Adviser.





“Beneficial Interest” means an interest whereby a person can, directly or indirectly, control the disposition of a Security or a Reportable Fund or derive a monetary, pecuniary or other right or benefit from the purchase, sale or ownership of a Security or a Reportable Fund (e.g., interest payments or dividends).
“Beneficial Ownership” of a Security, Reportable Fund or account means, consistent with Section 16 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”) and Rule 16a-1(a)(2) thereunder, ownership of Securities, Securities accounts, or Reportable Funds by or for the benefit of a person or his or her Related Person. Beneficial Ownership specifically includes any Security or account in which the Access Person or any Related Persons holds a direct or indirect Beneficial Interest or retains voting power (or the ability to direct such a vote) or investment power (which includes the power to acquire or dispose of, or the ability to direct the acquisition or disposition of, a Security, Securities accounts or Reportable Funds), directly or indirectly (e.g., by exercising a power of attorney or otherwise).
“Exempt Security” is any Security that falls into any of the following categories: (i) shares issued by open-end mutual funds (excluding exchange traded funds (“ETFs”), except Reportable Funds, if any; (ii) shares issued by money market funds; (iii) Security purchases or sales that are part of an automatic dividend reinvestment plan (e.g., DRIP accounts, etc.); (iv) College Direct Savings Plans (e.g., 529 College Savings Program, etc.); (v) shares issued by unit investment trusts that are invested exclusively in one or more open-end funds (so long as such funds are not Reportable Funds); (vi) bankers’ acceptances, bank certificates of deposit or time deposits, commercial paper and other short term high quality debt instruments with one year or less to maturity; and (vii) treasury obligations (e.g., T-bills, notes and bonds) or other Securities issued/guaranteed by the U.S. Government, its agencies, or instrumentalities (e.g., FNMA, GNMA).
“Related Person” means the spouse, domestic partner, child or stepchild, parent or stepparent, grandchild, grandparent, sibling, mother-in-law, father-in-law, son-in-law, daughter-in-law, brother-in-law, sister-in-law (including adoptive relationships) of an Access Person, who either resides with, or is financially dependent upon, the Access Person, or whose investments are controlled by the Access Person.
“Reportable Fund” means any Fund for which OFS Advisor or any Affiliate acts as investment adviser, sub-adviser or underwriter.
“Reportable Security” means every Security and Reportable Fund in which an Access Person or a Related Person has a Beneficial Ownership or other Beneficial Interest, except for an Exempt Security.
“Security” means any note, stock, treasury stock, bond, debenture, evidence of indebtedness6, certificate of interest or participation in any profit-sharing agreement, collateral-trust certificate, reorganization certificate or subscription, transferable share, investment contract, voting trust certificate, certificate of deposit for a security, fractional undivided interest in oil, gas or other mineral rights, any put, call, straddle, option or privilege on any security (including a certificate of deposit) or on any group or index of securities (including any interest therein or based on the value thereof), or a put, call, straddle, option or privilege, entered into on a national securities exchange relating to foreign currency, or in general, any interest or instrument commonly known as a “security,” or any certificate of interest or participation in, temporary or interim certificate for, receipt for, guarantee of, or warrant or right to subscribe to or purchase, any of the foregoing.


6 Note that, for most purposes, evidences of indebtedness are treated as “Securities” for securities law purposes; insider trading prohibitions are an exception to this general rule.






Note that Security has a different definition for purposes of the Inside Information Policy of the Code.
B.
RECORDKEEPING AND REPORTING REQUIREMENTS

Under the Advisers Act and the Company Act, OFS Adviser and each OFS Fund are required to keep records of transactions in Reportable Securities in which Access Persons have Beneficial Ownership or a direct or indirect Beneficial Interest.
1.Reports

The following personal Securities holdings and transaction reporting requirements have been adopted to enable each of OFS Adviser and each OFS Fund to satisfy their legal and regulatory requirements:
In all cases, within ten (10) calendar days from the date of commencement of employment (or other engagement or arrangement) with the Firm, every new Access Person shall submit to the Compliance Department, through the Firm’s automated compliance system, the required information about any Affiliated Accounts (such information must be current as of a date no more than forty-five (45) calendar days prior to the date the person becomes an Access Person);
Within sixty (60) calendar days of becoming an Access Person, every new Access Person must transfer all Affiliated Accounts in which the Access Person or his or her Related Persons have direct influence or control in the investment decisions (“Non-Managed Accounts”) and in which Reportable Securities are held or are capable of being held to a broker-dealer to which the Compliance Department has access via the Firm’s automated compliance system (an “Approved Broker”). Subsequently, any new Non-Managed Accounts opened on behalf of such Access Person or his or her Related Person in which Reportable Securities will be held or transacted must be established with an Approved Broker. The Compliance Department maintains a list of Approved Brokers, which can be found on the Firm’s automated compliance system site. Holdings and transactions in Reportable Securities in these accounts are electronically reported to the Compliance Department by the Approved Brokers through the automated compliance system.
Any exception to the Approved Broker policy above must be approved in writing by a Compliance Officer.
By the Compliance Due Date and no later than thirty (30) calendar days after each quarter end, every Access Person is required to certify all Affiliated Accounts via the Firm’s automated compliance system. Any updates to an Access Person’s accounts must be reported via the Firm’s automated compliance system within thirty (30) calendar days of opening or closing of such Affiliated Account.
By the Compliance Due Date and no later than thirty (30) calendar days after each quarter end, every Access Person is required to certify via the Firm’s automated compliance system, all transactions in Reportable Securities in Non-Managed Accounts, as recorded by the system during the quarter. Any transactions in Reportable Securities in a Non-Managed Account not included within the Firm’s automated compliance system should be reported separately by the Access Person.




By the Compliance Due Date and no later than forty-five (45) calendar days following the end of each calendar year (i.e., February 14), every Access Person is required to certify, via the Firm’s automated compliance system, such Access Person’s Affiliated Accounts and Reportable Securities holdings in all Non-Managed Accounts as of year-end. Any holdings in Reportable Securities in a Non-Managed Account not included within the Firm’s automated compliance system should be reported separately by the Access Person.

2.Determining Whether an Account is an Affiliated Account

In most cases, determining whether an Access Person or his or her Related Person has Beneficial Ownership of or a Beneficial Interest in the Reportable Securities held in an account (which would make such account an Affiliated Account for purposes hereof) is a straight-forward process. It is, however, important to note that, in some cases, an owner of an equity interest in an entity may be considered to have Beneficial Ownership of the assets of that entity. In general, equity holders are not deemed to have Beneficial Ownership of Securities held by an entity that is not “controlled” by the equity holders or in which the equity holders do not have or share investment control over the entity’s portfolio. Because the determination of whether an equity holder controls an entity or its investment decisions can be complicated, Access Persons are encouraged to seek guidance from a Compliance Officer. To the extent such guidance is not sought, any failure by an Access Person to properly identify all Affiliated Accounts will be treated as a violation of the Code.
3.Managed Accounts

The Firm recognizes that it may be impossible or impractical for accounts that are controlled or invested by a third party, such as an investment adviser or broker (“Managed Accounts”), to comply with the Reporting and Restricted List procedures of the Code. Therefore, Managed Accounts are exempted from such procedures, provided that the Access Person cedes any and all control over investment decisions for the account (other than general asset class and objectives guidelines) to such third party and does not communicate with such person with respect to individual transactions for the account. Special rules apply with respect to whether an Access Person “controls” the investment decisions of an entity in which he or she invests; guidance from a Compliance Officer should be sought in such instances.
The Firm requires that general information regarding Managed Accounts, including broker, account title, account number, and the status of the account, be reported through the Firm’s automated compliance system. In order to properly establish a Managed Account, the Access Persons is required to provide to the Compliance Department evidence that full investment discretion has been provided to the third-party investment adviser or broker (e.g., provide the investment management agreement). Upon establishing a Managed Account in the Firm’s automated compliance system and quarterly thereafter, the Access Person is required to certify within the Firm’s automated compliance system that he or she does not participate, directly or indirectly in individual investment decisions in the Managed Account or be made aware of such decisions before transactions are executed.
4.Non-Transferable Accounts

The Firm recognizes that it may be impossible or impracticable for certain types of Non-Managed Accounts (e.g. 401(k) accounts) of Access Persons or their Related Persons with other employers, an account pledged to secure a personal loan, etc. to be transferred to an Approved Broker. A Compliance Officer may exempt any such Non-Managed Account from the Approved Broker procedures set forth above provided that the Access Person shall be responsible for reporting transactions and holdings of Reportable Securities




(e.g. employer shares) in such account as set forth above and complying with the Restricted List procedures with respect to such Non-Managed Accounts.
The Firm requires that all such “non-transferable” Non-Managed Accounts be reported to the Compliance Department so that an exemption may properly be granted. General information regarding such accounts must be reported through the Firm’s automated compliance system. A Compliance Officer may, as a condition to exempting such Affiliated Accounts, require, initially and periodically thereafter, copies of account statements, a certification from the Access Person, or such other information as such Compliance Officer deems prudent.
5.Transactions Subject to Review

Transactions and holding information reported via the Firm’s automated compliance system will be reviewed by a Compliance Officer and compared against the investments made or considered by each of the Advisory Clients. Such review and comparison are designed to evaluate compliance with the Code and further, to determine whether there have been any violations of applicable law. Reporting made by a Compliance Officer is reviewed by a different Compliance Officer so that no Compliance Officer is reviewing his or her own reporting.
C.
STATEMENT OF RESTRICTIONS

1.Restricted List

No Access Person or Related Person may make a trade Personal Securities Trade in the Securities of an issuer listed on the Firm’s Restricted List. Before an Access Person or his/her Related Person makes a Personal Securities Trade, the Access Person must review the Restricted List and confirm that neither the Security to be traded nor the relevant issuer are listed thereon. The information that a particular issuer or Security has been placed on the Restricted List is itself sensitive and confidential. The contents of the Restricted List should never be communicated to persons outside of the Firm except in the limited circumstances in which a Compliance Officer has determined that it is necessary and appropriate to disclose such information for bona fide business purposes. The Firm may place an issuer on the Restricted List at any time without prior notice to Access Persons. Therefore, Access Persons who obtain Securities of an issuer that is later placed on the Restricted List may be “frozen in,” or prohibited from disposing of such Securities, until the issuer has been removed from the Restricted List. Because Access Persons are already required to obtain pre-approval for the purchase or sale of any Private Placement (see below), the Restricted List is limited to the Securities of issuers with a class of publicly-traded Securities.
(a)
Securities
The name of an issuer or Security could be placed on the Restricted List for many reasons, including when:
the Firm, any investment adviser Affiliate, or an Advisory Client purchases a Security of a particular issuer or such Security is Being Considered for Purchase or Sale;
the Firm or any investment adviser Affiliate executes a confidentiality agreement with or relating to an issuer;
the Firm, any investment adviser Affiliate, or an Advisory Client has declared itself “Private” with respect to an issuer in an electronic workspace;
the Firm becomes bound by a fiduciary obligation or other duty (for example, because an Access Person has become a board member of an issuer);




an Access Person becomes a member of an issuer’s board on behalf of the Firm or a Portfolio Company;
an Access Person becomes aware of (or is likely to become aware of) MNPI about a Security or issuer; or
the Firm, as determined by a Compliance Officer, has determined to include an issuer to avoid the appearance of impropriety and protect the Firm’s reputation for integrity and ethical conduct.

(b)
Procedures
The Compliance Department maintains and updates the Firm’s Restricted List. It is the responsibility of Access Persons, however, to ensure that the Firm’s Restricted List is accurate. Please refer to the Confidentiality Policy for further information on the relevant procedures.
Additions: Access Persons who become aware of any of the circumstances set forth in subsection 1.a) above, or who for any other reason believe an issuer or Security should be added to the Restricted List, should immediately notify a Compliance Officer in order to ensure that the Restricted List is updated.
Deletions: When the circumstances set forth in subsection 1.a) above no longer exist, or the Firm is no longer bound by the obligations giving rise to the inclusion of an issuer or Security on the Restricted List, Access Persons should notify a Compliance Officer so that the proposed removal can be assessed and the name of the issuer or Security can be promptly removed, as necessary, from the Restricted List.
Changes: From time to time, the Compliance Department will update the Restricted List as contemplated by this Personal Investment Policy and the Confidentiality Policy. Access Persons are responsible for checking the Restricted List in all cases before engaging in any Personal Securities Trade.

Generally, Securities that are on the Restricted List because OFS Adviser or an investment adviser Affiliate has entered into a confidentiality agreement, declared itself “private” or otherwise accessed MNPI with respect to an issuer, must stay on the list for at least one hundred eighty (180) calendar days after the applicable Advisory Client(s) have liquidated the holding or last accessed MNPI on the relevant Security or issuer of such Security. A Compliance Officer may determine that a longer or shorter “stay” period is appropriate for issuers or Securities in such Compliance Officer’s sole discretion.
2.Private Placements and Initial Public Offerings

No IPO may be purchased and no Private Placement may be purchased or sold for any Affiliated Account, except with the prior, express written approval of (i) the CCO or designee; or (ii) where such Access Person is the CCO, the prior written approval of the GC. Requests to make such investments shall be made through the Firm’s automated compliance system. A record of such approval (or denial), and a brief description of the reasoning supporting such decision will be maintained in accordance with the recordkeeping requirements of the Advisers Act and the Company Act.
3.Trades by OFS Funds Directors

OFS Funds Directors are prohibited from trading any OFS Funds Portfolio Security.




4.Trades of OFS Funds Securities, CMCT, or other Affiliated Securities

Access Persons and their Related Person’s are prohibited from buying or selling, or buying or selling options on, futures or other derivatives related to, shares issued by OFS Funds, CIM Commercial Trust Corporation (“CMCT”), the Cole/CCO Capital REITs and any affiliated securities (“Affiliated Securities”), except with prior, express written approval of the CCO or designee.
Access Persons may engage in transactions on Affiliated Securities upon approval by the CCO or designee, which generally may be granted only during an open trading window. All approved transactions must be completed within three (3) business days from the date of approval, but before the close of any applicable trading window. If the approved transaction is not completed within three (3) business days, the Access Person must seek a new preapproval from the CCO or designee.
5.Trades by Access Persons Serving on Company Boards

Companies for which Access Persons serve on the board of directors may permit members of its board of directors to purchase or sell stock based on a predetermined schedule (such as a Rule 10b5-1 Plan7) that is approved by the company (“Predetermined Schedule”). Personal Securities Trades made in accordance with a Predetermined Schedule by Access Persons who serve on the board of directors of such companies are exempt from the restriction against trading in Securities added to the Restricted List after the adoption of the Predetermined Schedule, however such Predetermined Schedules must be disclosed to a Compliance Officer prior to making the trade and are subject to the reporting requirements set forth in the section above. Further, purchases and sales of Securities by such company’s directors during an established trading window may be permitted with prior notice to, and at the discretion of, a Compliance Officer.
6.No Personal Trades Through OFS Adviser’s Traders

No Personal Securities Trades may be effected through OFS Adviser’s trading personnel.
7.Use of Brokerage for Personal or Family Benefit

No Access Person may, for direct or indirect personal or a Related Person’s benefit, execute a trade with a broker by using the influence (actual or implied) of OFS Adviser or any Access Person’s influence (actual or implied) with OFS Adviser.
8.No “Front Running”

While the Code contains policies and procedures designed to promote ethical conduct with respect to Personal Securities Trades, irrespective of the application of any particular trading policy or restriction, no Personal Securities Trades may be effected by any Access Person who is aware or should be aware that (i) there is a pending buy or sell order in the Securities of that same issuer for any Advisory Client of OFS Adviser, or (ii) a purchase or sale of the Securities of that same issuer can reasonably be anticipated for an OFS Adviser Advisory Client in the next five (5) calendar days. No Personal Securities Trade may be executed with a view toward making a profit from a change in price of such Security resulting from anticipated transactions by or for OFS Adviser’s Advisory Clients.
9.Acquiring Five (5) Percent or more of a Publicly Traded Company
Access Persons are required to report to a Compliance Officer any ownership exceeding five (5) percent of a class of equity securities of a publicly traded company that they or their Related Persons or Family Members have a beneficial interest in.




D.
REQUIREMENTS OF DISINTERESTED DIRECTORS

The Recordkeeping, Reporting, and Statement of Restrictions provisions listed above (except those in Section II(C)(3-4) do not apply to any OFS Fund Director who is not an interested person of any OFS Fund within the meaning of Section 2(a)(19) of the Company Act (“Disinterested Directors”) of each of the OFS Funds, except as the following describes. A Disinterested Director need only report a transaction if, at the time of a Personal Securities Trade in a Reportable Security, the Disinterested Director knew, or, in the ordinary course of fulfilling his or her duties as a director, should have known that during the fifteen (15) day period immediately preceding or after the date of the transaction, their OFS Fund purchased or sold the Security or the Security was Being Considered for Purchase or Sale by their OFS Fund or OFS Adviser.


7 A Rule 10b5-1 plan is a written plan for trading Securities that is designed in accordance with Rule 105-1(c). Any person executing pre-planned transactions pursuant to a Rule 10b5-1 plan that was established in good faith at a time when that person was unaware of material nonpublic information has an affirmative defense against accusations of insider trading, even if actual trades made pursuant to the plan are executed at a time when the individual may be aware of material nonpublic information.)









III.
INSIDE INFORMATION POLICY

A.
INTRODUCTION

The prohibitions against insider trading set forth in the federal securities laws play an essential role in maintaining the fairness, health and integrity of our markets. These laws also establish fundamental standards of business conduct that govern our daily activities and help to ensure that Advisory Client’s trust and confidence are not compromised in any way. Consistent with these principles, OFS Adviser forbids any Supervised Person from (i) trading Securities for the Firm, any Advisory Client or any account in which a Supervised Person has a Beneficial Interest, if that Supervised Person is “aware” of material and nonpublic information (“MNPI” or “Inside Information”) concerning an issuer; or (ii) communicating MNPI to others in violation of the law. This conduct is frequently referred to as “insider trading.” This policy applies to all Supervised Persons, and extends to activities within and outside of each Supervised Person’s duties at OFS Adviser or with any OFS Fund.
The term “insider trading” is not specifically defined under the federal securities laws (most guidance in this area can be found under case law and related judicial decisions), but generally is used to refer to improper trading in Securities8 on the basis of MNPI (whether or not the person trading is an insider). A person is generally deemed to trade “on the basis of MNPI if that person is aware of MNPI when making the purchase or sale, regardless of whether the person specifically relied on the information in making an investment decision. It is generally understood that the law prohibits trading by an insider on the basis of MNPI about the Security or issuer. To be held liable under the law, the person trading generally must violate a duty of trust or confidence owed directly, indirectly or derivatively to the issuer of that Security or the shareholders of that issuer, or to any other person who is the source of the material nonpublic information (e.g., an employer). The law also prohibits the communication of inside information to others and provides for penalties and punitive damages against the “tipper” even if he or she does not gain personally from the improper trading.


8 OFS Adviser often transacts in syndicated or other loan interests on the basis of information that is not available to other members of the syndicate, or to the public in general; however, for the limited purpose of this policy, “Securities” (as defined in the Exchange Act) do not include such loan interests or other “evidences of indebtedness.” If you are uncertain as to whether a particular investment is a “security” for purposes of this policy, contact the Legal/Compliance Department.
