DALLAS, December 10, 2021 / PRNewswire / – Vertical Capital Income Fund (NYSE: VCIF) today announced a distribution of $ 0.1819 per share.

The distribution is equal to 8% of the average net asset value of the last three months, divided by 12. The main objective of the plan is to provide investors with consistent, but not guaranteed, periodic distributions from the Fund, regardless of when or if the income. is earned or capital gains are realized. Distributions under the Plan may consist of (i) net investment income, (ii) net realized short-term capital gains, (iii) net realized long-term capital gains and, to the extent necessary, (iv) a return of capital (or other sources of capital). With each distribution that does not consist solely of net investment income, the Fund will issue a notice to shareholders and an accompanying press release which will provide detailed information regarding the amount and composition of the distribution, as well as certain other related information. The Fund expects to issue such notices and press releases around the distribution payment date.
