The associated registration statement previously filed by MFIC was declared effective by the SEC on April 3, 2024.

NEW YORK, May 07, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MidCap Financial Investment Corporation (NASDAQ: MFIC) or the “Company,” today announced financial results for its quarter ended March 31, 2024. The Company’s net investment income was $0.44 per share for the quarter ended March 31, 2024, compared to $0.46 per share for the quarter ended December 31, 2023. The Company’s net asset value (“NAV”) was $15.42 per share as of March 31, 2024, compared to $15.41 as of December 31, 2023.

On May 7, 2024, the Board of Directors (the “Board”) declared a dividend of $0.38 per share payable on June 27, 2024 to stockholders of record as of June 11, 2024.

Mr. Tanner Powell, the Company’s Chief Executive Officer, commented, “Our results for the March quarter were solid and included a slight increase in net asset value per share, relatively stable credit performance, and continued de-risking of the portfolio. We believe these results underscore the benefits of our strategy of building a well-diversified portfolio of true first lien middle market loans sourced by MidCap Financial, a leading middle-market lender managed by Apollo, and one of the largest and most successful middle market lenders.” Mr. Powell continued, “We look forward to realizing the potential benefits of our previously announced proposed mergers with Apollo Senior Floating Rate Fund Inc. and Apollo Tactical Income Fund Inc., which will create a larger, more scaled BDC focused on middle market direct lending.”
