Update on Strategic Alternatives
As noted previously, in November 2015, the Company’s Board of Directors formed a Special Committee, composed solely of independent directors Mark C. Biderman, Edward H. Cohen and Thomas A. Ortwein, Jr., to consider various strategic alternatives potentially available to the Company. The process being conducted by the Special Committee is ongoing.
In order to maximize the types of potential strategic alternatives available to the Company, the Company has opted not to reinvest any cash proceeds received by the Company in connection with loan repayments and sales and has limited its origination activities. As a result of this change in investment strategy, the Company’s loan assets and related investment income have declined. Accordingly, the Board of Directors suspended the declaration of any future distributions to stockholders.
