The information contained in Item 2.03 of this Current Report on Form 8-K is incorporated by reference in this Item 1.01.

Item 2.03                                           Creation of a Direct Financial Obligation or an Obligation under an Off-Balance Sheet Arrangement of a Registrant.

On October 22, 2021, MSC Income Fund, Inc. (the “Company”) and certain qualified institutional investors entered into a Master Note Purchase Agreement, dated as of October 22, 2021 (the “Note Purchase Agreement”), which governs the issuance of $150,000,000 in aggregate principal amount of 4.04% Series A Senior Notes due 2026 (the “Series A Notes”). The Series A Notes bear a fixed interest rate of 4.04% per year and will mature on October 30, 2026, unless redeemed, purchased or prepaid prior to such date by the Company in accordance with their terms. The Company issued $77.5 million of Series A Notes upon entering into the Note Purchase Agreement, and will issue an additional $72.5 million in January 2022.


Interest on the Series A Notes will be due semiannually on April 30 and October 30 each year, beginning on April 30, 2022. The Series A Notes may be redeemed in whole or in part at any time or from time to time at the Company’s option at par plus accrued interest to the prepayment date and, if applicable, a make-whole premium. In addition, the Company is obligated to offer to prepay the Series A Notes at par plus accrued and unpaid interest up to, but excluding, the date of prepayment, if certain change in control events occur. The Series A Notes are general unsecured obligations of the Company that rank pari passu with all outstanding and future unsecured unsubordinated indebtedness issued by the Company.


The Company intends to use the net proceeds from this offering to fully repay the total debt amount outstanding under its term loan from Main Street Capital Corporation and to repay a portion of the debt outstanding under its corporate revolving credit facility and then, through re-borrowing under its corporate revolving credit facility, to fund investments in accordance with its investment objective and strategies, to pay operating expenses and other cash obligations, and for general corporate purposes.


The Note Purchase Agreement contains customary terms and conditions for senior unsecured notes issued in a private placement, including, without limitation, affirmative and negative covenants such as information reporting, maintenance of the Company’s status as a business development company within the meaning of the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended (the “1940 Act”), a minimum asset coverage ratio of 2.00 to 1.00, subject to reduction to 1.50 to 1.00 upon the Company obtaining the approval required under the 1940 Act, a minimum interest coverage ratio of 2.00 to 1.00, which may be reduced to 1.25 to 1.00 under certain conditions, and minimum unsecured debt coverage ratio of 1.25 to 1.00. In addition, in the event that a Below Investment Grade Event (as defined in the Note Purchase Agreement) occurs, the Series A Notes will bear interest at a fixed rate of 5.04% per year from the date of the occurrence of the Below Investment Grade Event to and until the date on which the Below Investment Grade Event is no longer continuing.


The Note Purchase Agreement also contains customary events of default with customary cure and notice periods, including, without limitation, nonpayment, incorrect representation in any material respect, breach of covenant, cross-default under other indebtedness of the Company or subsidiary guarantors subject to a cure pass-through, certain judgments and orders and certain events of bankruptcy.


The Series A Notes were offered in reliance on Section 4(a)(2) of Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”). The Series A Notes have not and will not be registered under the Securities Act or any state securities laws and, unless so registered, may not be offered or sold in the United States except pursuant to an exemption from, or in a transaction not subject to, the registration requirements of the Securities Act, as applicable.


The description above is only a summary of the material provisions of the Note Purchase Agreement and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the copy of the Note Purchase Agreement, which is incorporated by reference and filed as Exhibit 10.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K.


The Company issued a press release on October 22, 2021 to announce the issuance of the Series A Notes, a copy of which is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1.
