Sierra Income Corporation and Medley Receive Co-Investment Exemptive Relief
NEW YORK -- December 4, 2013
On November 25, 2013, Sierra Income Corporation (“SIC”), a business
development company (“BDC”) whose strategy is to invest in the debt of
privately owned U.S. companies with a focus on senior secured debt, second
lien debt and, to a lesser extent, subordinated debt, received an exemptive
order from the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “Order”) that allows
SIC to participate in negotiated co-investment transactions with other funds
managed by affiliates of its investment adviser, SIC Advisors LLC, subject to
the conditions included in the Order. Affiliated funds that SIC can now
co-invest with include Medley Capital Corporation (“MCC”), a NYSE-listed BDC.
“The Order gives SIC greater flexibility with respect to its investment
options going forward and will allow SIC to more effectively and efficiently
deploy capital across a larger pool of directly originated transactions,”
stated Seth Taube, CEO of SIC. “We believe having access to a broader pipeline
of opportunities will benefit our shareholders as we seek the best available
risk-adjusted investments over time.”
