Regular Monthly Dividends of $0.16 per Share for each of October, November and December 2013 Represent a 7% Increase Compared to Fourth Quarter 2012
HOUSTON, Aug. 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Main Street Capital Corporation (NYSE: MAIN) ("Main Street") announced today that its Board of Directors declared regular monthly dividends of $0.16 per share for each of October, November and December 2013. These monthly dividends, which will be payable pursuant to the table below, total $0.48 per share for the fourth quarter of 2013 and represent a 7% increase from the monthly dividends declared for the fourth quarter of 2012. Since its October 2007 initial public offering, Main Street has periodically increased the amount of its regular monthly dividends paid per share, and has never reduced its regular monthly dividend amount per share. Including the regular monthly dividends declared for the fourth quarter of 2013, Main Street will have paid $10.44 per share in cumulative dividends since its October 2007 initial public offering.
Summary of Fourth Quarter 2013 Regular Monthly Dividends
Amount Per Share
Total for Fourth Quarter 2013:
When declaring dividends, the Main Street Board of Directors reviews estimates of taxable income available for distribution, which differs from consolidated net income under generally accepted accounting principles due to (i) changes in unrealized appreciation and depreciation, (ii) temporary and permanent differences in income and expense recognition, (iii) activity at our taxable subsidiaries, and (iv) the amount of undistributed taxable income ("spillover income," or taxable income in excess of dividends paid) carried over from a given year for distribution in the following year. The final determination of 2013 taxable income, as well as the tax attributes for 2013 dividends, will be made after the close of the 2013 tax year. The final tax attributes for 2013 dividends are currently expected to include ordinary taxable income, capital gains and qualified dividends.
Main Street maintains a dividend reinvestment plan ("DRIP") that provides for the reinvestment of dividends on behalf of its stockholders, unless a stockholder has elected to receive dividends in cash. As a result, if Main Street declares a dividend, our stockholders who have not "opted out" of the DRIP by the dividend record date will have their dividend automatically reinvested into additional shares of our common stock. Main Street has the option to satisfy the share requirements of the DRIP through the issuance of new shares of common stock or through open market purchases of common stock by the DRIP plan administrator. Newly-issued shares will be valued based upon the final closing price of Main Street's common stock on a specified valuation date for each dividend as determined by Main Street's Board of Directors. Shares purchased in the open market to satisfy the DRIP requirements will be valued based upon the average price of the applicable shares purchased by the DRIP plan administrator, before any associated brokerage or other costs, which are borne by Main Street.
