Fifth Street Finance Corp. Declares Monthly Dividends Of 8.33 Cents Per Share

Stocks in this article: FSC

WHITE PLAINS, NY, Feb. 6, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Fifth Street Finance Corp. (NASDAQ:FSC) ("FSC") today announced that its Board of Directors declared monthly dividends for June through August of 2014.  

The following table reflects the per share dividends which the Board of Directors declared on February 6, 2014:

     
Record Date Payment Date Amount
June 16, 2014 June 30, 2014 $0.0833
July 15, 2014 July 31, 2014 $0.0833
August 15, 2014 August 29, 2014 $0.0833

FSC's amended dividend reinvestment plan ("DRIP") provides for reinvestment of dividends, unless stockholders elect to receive cash.  As a result, if FSC's Board of Directors declares a cash dividend, FSC's stockholders whose shares are registered in their name and who have not "opted out" of FSC's DRIP will have their cash dividends automatically reinvested in additional shares of FSC common stock, rather than receiving cash dividends.  FSC provides up to a 5% discount on newly-issued shares purchased through the DRIP (provided that shares are not issued at less than net asset value per share).  If you are a FSC stockholder and your shares of FSC common stock are held through a brokerage firm or other financial intermediary and you wish to participate in the DRIP, please contact your broker or other financial intermediary.
