The Fund intends, but is not obligated, to conduct quarterly tender offers for up to 2.5% of its Shares then outstanding in the sole discretion of the Board. In determining whether the Fund should conduct a tender offer, the Board will consider the recommendation of BNY Mellon Investment Adviser, Inc. ("BNY Mellon Investment Adviser"), the Fund's investment adviser, and Alcentra NY LLC ("Alcentra"), the Fund's sub-investment adviser, as well as a variety of operational, business and economic factors. In any given quarter, BNY Mellon Investment Adviser and Alcentra may or may not recommend to the Board that the Fund conduct a tender offer, and even if BNY Mellon Investment Adviser and Alcentra do recommend to the Board that the Fund conduct a tender offer, the Board may not approve such recommendation.
While the Fund intends to conduct quarterly tender offers as described in the Fund's initial public offering prospectus, the Fund is not required to do so and may amend, suspend or terminate any such tender offer program at any time. Shareholders have no right to require the Fund to redeem their Shares. Quarterly tender offers may be delayed or discontinued at any time. It is also possible that if a tender offer is conducted, it may be oversubscribed, with the result that shareholders may only be able to have a portion of their Shares repurchased. There is no assurance that shareholders will be able to tender their Shares when or in the amount that they desire.
This announcement is for informational purposes only and is not a recommendation, an offer to purchase or a solicitation of an offer to sell Shares. The Offer Documents in connection with the Fund's tender offers in the 3rd and 4th quarters of 2021 (if such tender offers are approved by the Board) will be distributed to Fund shareholders, when available. Shareholders will also be able to obtain additional copies of the Offer Documents, when available, without charge, from Georgeson. Shareholders will also be able to obtain the Offer Documents, when available, free of charge on the SEC's website at www.sec.gov. Shareholders should read these documents and related exhibits carefully as the documents contain important information about the tender offers.
