  Annual General Meeting

Business Wire

LOS ANGELES -- May 8, 2018

Further to its May 4, 2018 letter to shareholders of Ranger Direct Lending
Fund PLC (LON:RDL) (“Ranger” or the “Company”), funds managed by Oaktree
Capital Management, L.P. (“Oaktree”), an approximately 19% shareholder of
Ranger, today released an open letter to Ranger’s shareholders announcing that
it has nominated two highly qualified directors to the Board, for election at
the Company’s Annual General Meeting on June 19, 2018 (the “AGM”). This letter
follows Oaktree’s formal written request to the Company requisitioning these
resolutions to be included for consideration by shareholders at the AGM.

The full text of the letter is as follows:

May 8, 2018

Dear fellow Ranger shareholders,

As outlined in our open letter on May 4, 2018, we have been deeply
disappointed by Ranger’s Board of Directors (the “Board”), which we believe
has repeatedly demonstrated that it lacks the expertise and credibility
required to make important upcoming decisions on behalf of shareholders.

A series of the Board’s poor decisions in recent months, including (i)
presiding over the Princeton debacle, (ii) conducting what was, in our view, a
flawed and biased strategic review and (iii) exhibiting many examples of poor
corporate governance in how these processes have been conducted, have resulted
in the destruction of shareholder value and a decided lack of confidence in
the current Board. Since we made our April 11 letter to the Board available to
all shareholders on April 24, we have heard from many of you supporting our
advocacy of the wind-down option and expressing a lack of confidence in the
current Ranger Board.

We strongly believe that the Board’s weaknesses can only be resolved by adding
to the Board and introducing a greater degree of oversight, a broader range of
views and a much deeper base of relevant experience at this important
strategic time for the Company. That is why we have nominated two additional,
highly qualified directors for you to consider adding to the current Board at
the Company’s upcoming AGM: Greg Share and Dominik Dolenec. These two nominees
would bring extensive relevant experience and valuable resources to supplement
the current Board – a development that we believe should be supported by all
shareholders. Combined, they bring over 40 years of experience in financial
services and asset management and are highly qualified to help the current
Board determine and subsequently oversee the best course of action going

We urge all shareholders to vote in favor of these nominations to the Board at
the upcoming AGM.
