|Monthly Dividends Declared in Fourth Quarter 2013|
|Declared||Ex-Dividend Date||Record Date||Payment Date||Amount Per Share|

|November 1, 2013||February 13, 2014||February 17, 2014||March 17, 2014||$0.115|
When declaring dividends, the Horizon Board of Directors reviews estimates of taxable income available for distribution, which may differ from consolidated net income under generally accepted accounting principles due to (i) changes in unrealized appreciation and depreciation, (ii) temporary and permanent differences in income and expense recognition, and (iii) the amount of spillover income carried over from a given year for distribution in the following year. The final determination of taxable income for each tax year, as well as the tax attributes for dividends in such tax year, will be made after the close of the tax year.
