NEW YORK, May 26, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Saratoga Investment Corp. (NYSE:SAR) (“Saratoga Investment” or “the Company”), a business development company, today announced that its Board of Directors has declared a quarterly dividend of $0.53 per share for the fiscal first quarter ended May 31, 2022, payable on June 29, 2022, to all stockholders of record at the close of business on June 14, 2022.

“Our continued strong track record and portfolio performance, healthy credit profile, robust deal pipeline, and ongoing asset growth are key attributes of our ability to deliver consistent financial performance and support a program of paying quarterly dividends,” said Christian L. Oberbeck, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Saratoga Investment. “This dividend strategy is consistent with our objective of producing the best risk-adjusted, accretive returns for our shareholders over the long-term.”

This is the first dividend declared in fiscal year 2023. The Company previously declared in fiscal 2022 a quarterly dividend of $0.53 per share for both the quarters ended February 28, 2022 and November 30, 2021, $0.52 per share for the quarter ended August 31, 2021, $0.44 per share for the quarter ended May 31, 2021 and $0.43 per share for the quarter ended February 28, 2021. During fiscal year 2021, the Company declared a quarterly dividend of $0.42 per share for the quarter ended November 30, 2020, $0.41 per share for the quarter ended August 31, 2020 and $0.40 per share for the quarter ended May 31, 2020.

Shareholders will have the option to receive payment of the dividend in cash or receive shares of common stock pursuant to the Company’s dividend reinvestment plan (“DRIP”). Saratoga Investment shareholders who hold their shares with a broker must affirmatively instruct their brokers prior to the record date if they prefer to receive this dividend, and future dividends, in common stock. The number of shares of common stock to be delivered shall be determined by dividing the total dollar amount by 95% of the average of the market prices per share at the close of trading on the ten (10) trading days immediately preceding (and including) the payment date.
