OFS Credit Company (NASDAQ:OCCI) ("OFS Credit," the "Company," "we," "us" or "our"), an investment company that primarily invests in collateralized loan obligation ("CLO") equity and debt securities, today announced that its Board of Directors has declared a $0.53 per share quarterly distribution, an approximate 2% increase from the prior quarter, for common stockholders for the quarter ending April 30, 2021. The Board of Directors has also declared monthly cash distributions on the 6.875% Series A Term Preferred Stock and 6.60% Series B Term Preferred Stock through July 2021.

The distribution for common stockholders will be paid in cash or shares of our common stock at the election of stockholders. The total amount of cash distributed to all stockholders will be limited to 20% of the total distribution to be paid, excluding any cash paid for fractional shares. The remainder of the distribution (approximately 80%) will be paid in the form of shares of our common stock. The exact distribution of cash and stock to any given stockholder will be dependent upon his/her election as well as elections of other stockholders, subject to the pro-rata limitation.

Management believes that the cash and stock distribution will allow the Company to strengthen its balance sheet and to be in position to capitalize on potential future investment opportunities. Management believes its commitment to strong, long-term performance is aligned with the interests of OFS Capital Management, LLC, our investment advisor who, together with other insiders, own approximately 15% of the Company’s common stock.

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

Record Date

Payment Date

March 23, 2021

April 30, 2021

$0.53

The amount, details and U.S. federal income tax consequences of the distribution will be described in the election form and accompanying materials that will be mailed to stockholders in connection with the distribution promptly following the record date. Election forms must be returned on or before 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time on April 22, 2021 to be effective. Stockholders who do not return a timely and properly completed election form before the election deadline will be deemed to have made an election to receive 100% of their distribution in stock.

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

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

Regardless of whether a stockholder receives the distribution in cash, stock, or some combination of cash and stock, the Company expects that entire amount of the distribution will be fully taxable to stockholders.

In addition, the Board of Directors has declared cash distributions on shares of the Company’s 6.875% Series A Term Preferred Stock and 6.60% Series B Term Preferred Stock. For the Company’s 6.875% Series A Term Preferred Stock, the Board declared six monthly cash distributions of $0.1432292 per preferred share. For the Company’s 6.60% Series B Term Preferred Stock, the Board declared six monthly cash distributions of $0.1375 per preferred share.
