About Oxford Lane Capital Corp.

Oxford Lane Capital Corp. is a publicly traded registered closed-end management investment company. Our investment objective is to maximize our portfolio's risk-adjusted total return by purchasing portions of equity and junior debt tranches of collateralized loan obligation ("CLO") vehicles. Structurally, CLO vehicles are entities formed to originate and manage a portfolio of loans. The CLO vehicles which we focus on are collateralized primarily by senior secured loans made to companies whose debt is unrated or is rated below investment grade. Our investment strategy also includes warehouse facilities, which are financing structures intended to aggregate loans that may be used to form the basis of a CLO vehicle.
