Q: Does the Company have a Dividend Reinvestment Plan (DRIP)?

A: The Company has established an automatic DRIP. Each holder of at least one full share of our common stock will be automatically enrolled in the DRIP. Under the DRIP, distributions on shares of the Company’s common stock are automatically reinvested in additional shares of the Company’s common stock by American Stock Transfer & Trust Company, LLC, or the “DRIP Agent.” Holders of the Company’s common stock who receive distributions in the form of additional shares of the Company’s common stock are nonetheless required to pay applicable federal, state or local taxes on the reinvested distribution but will not receive a corresponding cash distribution with which to pay any applicable tax. Holders of shares of the Company’s common stock who opt-out of participation in the DRIP (including those holders whose shares are held through a broker who has opted out of participation in the DRIP) will receive all distributions in cash. Reinvested distributions increase the Company’s stockholders’ equity on which a management fee is payable to the Adviser. If you hold shares of the Company’s common stock through a broker, you should contact your broker to confirm whether you participate in the DRIP.

Q: How do I know if I am a registered stockholder?

A: A registered stockholder is one who holds shares directly with the Company. If shares were purchased through a broker, the shares may be registered in the name of the broker (held in “street name”) instead of being registered in the name of the beneficial owner. Individual stockholders whose shares are held in street name should contact their broker for more information on their participation in the DRIP.
