BNY Mellon Alcentra Global Multi-Strategy Credit Fund, Inc. Declares Quarterly Distribution and Special Year-End Distributions

·3 min read

NEW YORK, December 07, 2021--(BUSINESS WIRE)--On December 7, 2021, BNY Mellon Alcentra Global Multi-Strategy Credit Fund, Inc. (Ticker: XALCX) declared a quarterly distribution of $1.75 per share of common stock. In addition, the Fund declared a special year-end distribution of $0.82 per share of common stock. Each distribution will be payable on January 6, 2022 to shareholders of record at the close of business on December 20, 2021. The ex-dividend date is December 21, 2021. The previous quarterly dividend declared in August was $1.75 per share of common stock.

For Federal income tax purposes, these distributions will be taxable to common shareholders in 2021, although the distributions will be paid in 2022. This press release is not for tax reporting purposes but is being provided to announce the amount of the Fund’s distributions that have been declared by the Fund's Board of Directors. In early 2022, the Fund will send common shareholders a Form 1099-DIV, specifying how to report these distributions for tax purposes.

The Fund intends to distribute all or a portion of its net investment income to common shareholders on a quarterly basis. To permit the Fund to maintain a more stable quarterly distribution, the Fund may from time to time distribute less than the entire amount of income earned in a particular period. The undistributed income would be available to supplement future distributions. Under normal market conditions, the Fund is managed in a manner such that the Fund’s distributions are reflective of the Fund’s current and projected earnings levels. Various factors will affect the Fund’s earnings, including the Fund’s asset mix, the average maturity of the Fund’s portfolio and the Fund’s use of hedging, as well as broader market conditions and interest rate levels. As portfolio and market conditions may change, the distribution rate, the composition of the distribution and the Fund's policy to declare and pay distributions quarterly may be subject to change, including by the Board of Directors.
