Main Street announces semi-annual supplemental cash dividend of 27.5c per share
Main Street Capital is pleased to announce that its Board of Directors declared its semi-annual supplemental cash dividend of 27.5c per share payable in December 2017. This supplemental cash dividend is in addition to the previously announced regular monthly cash dividends that Main Street declared for the fourth quarter of 2017 of 57c per share, or 19c per share for each of October, November and December 2017, and is consistent with the previous semi-annual supplemental cash dividends paid in December 2016 and June 2017. Including the regular monthly and supplemental cash dividends declared to date, Main Street will have paid $21.39 per share in cumulative cash dividends since its October 2007 initial public offering at $15.00 per share. Based upon the regular monthly dividend rate of 19c per share for the fourth quarter of 2017 and the current semi-annual supplemental dividend rate of 27.5c per share, Main Street's current annualized run-rate for cash dividends is $2.83 per share. Main Street also expects that its Board of Directors will declare regular monthly dividends for the first quarter of 2018 during the last week of October.
