Solar Capital Ltd. Adopts Stock Repurchase Program

Stocks in this article: SLRC

Solar Capital Ltd. (the “Company”) (NASDAQ-GS: SLRC) announced today that its board of directors has authorized a program for the purpose of repurchasing up to $100 million worth of its common stock. Under the repurchase program, the Company may, but is not obligated to, repurchase its outstanding common stock in the open market from time to time provided that the Company complies with the prohibitions under its Insider Trading Policies and Procedures and the guidelines specified in Rule 10b-18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, including certain price, market volume and timing constraints. Unless extended by the Company’s board of directors, the Company expects the repurchase program to be in place until the earlier of January 31, 2014 or until $100 million of the Company’s outstanding shares of common stock have been repurchased.

The Company’s board of directors authorized the repurchase program because it believes the recent market volatility may cause the Company’s common stock to be undervalued from time to time. The timing and number of shares to be repurchased will depend on a number of factors, including market conditions and alternative investment opportunities. In addition, any repurchases will be conducted in accordance with the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended. The Company has not yet been active in the repurchase program and there are no assurances that it will engage in repurchases, but if market conditions warrant, the Company now has the ability to take advantage of situations where the Company’s management believes share repurchases would be advantageous to the Company and to its shareholders.

“We believe that this share repurchase program will provide us with greater flexibility in utilizing our over $500 million of available capital to generate incremental investment income per share,” said Michael Gross, Chairman and CEO of Solar Capital Ltd. “We continue to see a consistent pipeline of investment opportunities, and view this program as a complementary tool to deploy our capital."
