Reports Q4 net asset value per share $14.03. Reports Q4 total assets 674.9M. In describing the company's 2020 activities, Robert Ladd, chairman and CEO of the company, stated, "I am pleased to report that our portfolio has performed well throughout the unprecedented pandemic and that our net asset value has risen back above $14.00 per share. As we have just completed our eighth full year of operations, our shareholders have received $10.99 per share of dividends life-to-date. During 2020, we paid dividends of $1.15 per share and significantly improved our liquidity and available capital position through the upsize and extension of our bank facility through September 2025, the issuance in January 2021 of $100 million of 4.875% bonds due 2026 and the continued funding of equity into our second SBIC license. For 2021, we have seen an increase in investment opportunities and as a result have funded $58 million on a cost basis since year-end 2020, increasing our investment portfolio by $43 million over the same period, net of payoffs."

Stellus Capital announced that it will change its dividend payment schedule from monthly to quarterly beginning with the quarter ended June 30, 2020 to better match the dividend with the timing of income received by the company. Upon approval by the Board of Directors, the company will announce the details of a dividend for the second quarter of 2020 at a later date. The company previously paid an aggregate of 34c per share through a monthly dividend of 11.33c per share for the first quarter of 2020.
