“2012 was a successful and productive year for Solar Senior Capital in further building the foundation for creating long term shareholder value. We increased our monthly per share dividend in the second half of the year by 17.5% and took advantage of heated capital market conditions to reset our capital structure while remaining prudent and disciplined in our approach to new investments,” said Michael Gross, Chairman and CEO of Solar Senior Capital Ltd. “We are in the process of investing the portfolio in light of the significant repayments experienced in Q4. We have significant investment capacity to build a larger, more diversified portfolio and are focused on sourcing proprietary senior secured, cash-pay investments that meet our strict underwriting standards.”
