Represents a 10% Increase Compared to Prior Dividend
HOUSTON, March 11, 2022 – MSC Income Fund, Inc. (the “Company”) is pleased to announce that its Board of Directors (the “Board”) has declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.165 per share, which represents a 10% increase from the previous quarterly dividend paid in February 2022. The increase marks the third increase in the quarterly dividend rate since MSC Adviser I, LLC became the sole adviser to the Company and reinstated the quarterly dividend to stockholders in the first quarter of 2021. This dividend will be payable on May 2, 2022 to holders of the Company’s common stock as of a record date of March 31, 2022.
Additionally, the Board approved the Company making a repurchase offer for 90% of the amount of proceeds resulting from shares issued in lieu of cash distributions from the May 2, 2022 dividend payment to participants in the Company’s distribution reinvestment plan. Stockholders who hold shares in their own name will receive instructions on how to access the tender offer materials in the mail after a tender offer is announced. The forms will also be made available on the Company’s website at www.mscincomefund.com/investors. These materials must be completed and returned to the Company in proper form before the applicable expiration date.

The final determination of the tax attributes for dividends each year are made after the close of the tax year. The final tax attributes for 2022 dividends are currently expected to include a combination of ordinary taxable income and qualified dividends and may include capital gains and return of capital.
The Company has adopted an “opt in” dividend reinvestment plan for its stockholders.
