DALLAS, November 30, 2021 / PRNewswire / –
As previously announced, Vertical Capital Income Fund (NYSE: VCIF) paid a monthly distribution of $ 0.0778 per share to all shareholders of record November 17, 2021, in accordance with the Fund’s managed distribution plan (the “Plan”).
In general, the amount of distributable income of the Fund depends on the cumulative gains and losses realized by the Fund during the whole year. Distributions may consist of net investment income, capital gains and return of capital, but the character of such distributions can not be determined until after the end of the financial year of the Fund. However, under the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended, and the terms of the Plan, the Fund may be required to disclose the source of each distribution to its shareholders. The following table shows the estimated sources of the current distribution and the cumulative distributions paid in fiscal 2022 to date from the sources shown in the table. All amounts are expressed per share and as a percentage of the amount of the distribution.

(1) You should not draw any conclusions about the performance of the Fund’s investments from the amount of this distribution or the terms of the Fund’s distribution policy.
(2) The amounts and sources of distributions shown in this 19 (a) notice are estimates only and are not provided for tax reporting purposes. The actual amounts and the sources of the amounts for tax reporting purposes will depend on the Fund’s investment experience during the remainder of its fiscal year and may be subject to change depending on tax regulations. The Fund will send you a Form 1099-DIV for the calendar year which will tell you how to report these distributions for federal income tax purposes.
(3) The Fund considers that it has distributed more than its income and net realized capital gains; therefore, part of your distribution may be a return of capital. A return of capital may occur, for example, when some or all of the money you have invested in the Fund is returned to you. A return of capital distribution does not necessarily reflect the performance of the Fund’s investments and should not be confused with “return” or “income”.
