Logan Ridge Finance Corporation Receives “BBB-” Investment Grade Rating from Egan-Jones and Announces Private Placement of $50 Million 5.25% Senior Unsecured Notes Due 2026

NEW YORK, October 27, 2021 – Logan Ridge Finance Corporation (Nasdaq: LRFC) (the “Company” or “Logan Ridge”), a business development company, today announced that it has been assigned a credit rating of “BBB-” from Egan-Jones Rating Company (“Egan-Jones”). Additionally, Logan Ridge announced that it has priced a private placement of $50 million in aggregate principal amount of 5.25% senior unsecured notes due 2026 (the “Notes”). The offering is expected to close on Friday, October 29, 2021, subject to customary closing conditions. The net proceeds to the Company are expected to be approximately $48.8 million, after deducting payment of fees and estimated offering expenses.

The Notes bear an interest rate of 5.25% per year, payable semiannually and will mature on October 30, 2026. The Company intends to use the net proceeds of the private placement to repay certain indebtedness, including to redeem a portion of the outstanding 2022 Notes, and for general corporate purposes.

“We are very pleased to announce the receipt of an investment grade rating as well as this private placement transaction which significantly reduces our cost of debt,” said Ted Goldthorpe, Chief Executive Officer of Logan Ridge. “We will continue to assess options to improve our overall cost of capital to support our portfolio companies and generate value for shareholders.”

This press release is neither an offer to sell nor a solicitation of an offer to buy the Notes and will not constitute an offer, solicitation or sale in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale is unlawful. Any offers of the Notes will be made only by means of a private offering memorandum. This press release is being issued pursuant to and in accordance with Rule 135c under the Securities Act.

The Notes have not been registered under the Securities Act, or any state securities laws and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from such registration requirements.
