The Company intends to use the proceeds of the offering to redeem its 5.31% Unsecured Notes due May 2021, to repay other outstanding debt and for general corporate purposes. Except as set forth in the Supplement, the Notes have the same terms as the unsecured notes that the Company previously issued pursuant to the Note Purchase Agreement and the supplements thereto, respectively.

John R. Kline, President & COO, commented: “We are very pleased to announce the completion of our most recent debt offering which successfully addresses near-term debt maturities, maintains our diversified funding profile and reduces NMFC’s overall cost of capital. The offering was supported by many of our existing lenders who continue to be great long-term supporters of NMFC as well as a new group of lenders who we would like to welcome as long-term partners.”

Deutsche Bank Securities Inc. acted as exclusive placement agent for the Company in connection with the Notes offering.
