The Company's Board of Directors previously expressed the intent to declare a supplemental cash dividend of $0.15 per share in the fourth quarter of 2022 for a total of supplemental cash dividends equal to $0.60 per share in 2022, subject to Board of Director approval.

This supplemental dividend will be paid out of Trinity Capital's undistributed taxable income (taxable income in excess of dividends paid) as of December 31, 2021.

The following are key dates for the regular and new supplemental dividend for the quarter ending June 30, 2022:

Summary of Second Quarter 2022 Regular and Supplemental Dividend:

Declaration date

September 15, 2022

Record Date

September 30, 2022

Payment Date

October 14, 2022

The Company's objective is to distribute four quarterly dividends in an amount that approximates 90% to 100% of its taxable quarterly income or potential annual income for a particular year in order to qualify for tax treatment as a regulated investment company under the Internal Revenue Code of 1986. In addition, during any particular year, the Company may pay additional supplemental dividends, so that the Company distributes approximately all its annual taxable income in the year it was earned, or it may spill over the excess taxable income into the coming year for future dividend payments.

Dividends are paid from taxable earnings and may include a return of capital and/or capital gains. The specific tax characteristics of the dividends will be reported to stockholders on Form 1099-DIV after the end of the calendar year and in the Company's periodic reports filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
