DALLAS, April 21, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- NexPoint Capital, Inc. (the "Company"), a non-traded publicly registered business development company and affiliate of Highland Capital Management, L.P., today announced that it intends to declare ordinary distributions on a weekly basis effective May 1, 2016. Please note that such distributions will continue to be paid on a monthly basis. According to its updated distribution schedule, the Company intends to set Monday as the record date for each weekly ordinary distribution and pay ordinary distributions on the date two (2) business days after the last declared ordinary distribution of the month. The Company has adopted an "opt in" distribution reinvestment plan ("DRIP") for its shareholders, as described in the Company's registration statement. As a result, if the Company makes an ordinary distribution, shareholders will receive the distribution in cash unless they specifically "opt in" to the DRIP so as to have their distributions reinvested in additional shares of the Company's common stock. Pursuant to the amended schedule, DRIP Shareholders will accrue dividends on a weekly basis, and the number of shares issued pursuant to the DRIP will be determined by dividing the total dollar amount of the accrued distribution payable to DRIP shareholders by an amount equal to 92% of the price at which common shares are sold in the offering at the last weekly closing of the month.
Any questions regarding the change to the Company's distribution schedule can be directed to the Company's Tender Agent, DST Systems, Inc., at (844) 485-9167. The Company's current offering price for its common stock, $9.83 per share as of April 20, 2016, as well as other information, including information about management and the healthcare-focused investment strategy, are available at http://nexpointcapital.com.
