Palmer Square Capital BDC Inc. (NYSE: PSBD) ("Palmer Square" or the "Company"), an externally managed business development company, today announced that its Board of Directors has declared a first quarter 2024 dividend of $0.49 per share, which represents a 12.1% total annualized yield based on the closing stock price on March 14, 2024 of $16.21. Shareholders of record as of March 28, 2024 will receive the dividend payable on April 10, 2024, comprised of a quarterly base distribution of $0.42 per share and a first quarter 2024 supplemental dividend of $0.07 per share. The supplemental dividend will be paid out of the excess of Palmer Square’s quarterly undistributed net investment income above the base quarterly distribution amount of $0.42 per share.

“We are initiating a base quarterly dividend amount and supplemental dividend policy that reinforces our commitment to enhanced transparency and shareholder alignment,” said Christopher D. Long, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Palmer Square. “Our dividend framework speaks to the Board’s confidence in our ability to more than cover our base quarterly dividend amount through our more liquid and diversified investment strategy. Our portfolio is almost entirely composed of first lien investments that we believe offer strong risk mitigation while delivering consistent yield. Our goal for the BDC continues to be delivering long-term total return to our shareholders in the quarters and years ahead.”

Approved by the Board, the Company expects to declare a quarterly supplemental dividend each quarter of at least 50% of net investment income above the base quarterly distribution of $0.42 per share.
