Orlando, Fla. (PRWEB) December 17, 2012
The Board of Directors of Corporate Capital Trust, a business development company focused on investing in debt of privately owned American companies, has declared a series of distributions representing an annualized yield of 7.125% based on the company’s current public offering price of $10.95 per share. It is expected that the distributions, in the aggregate, will be fully covered by taxable income.
“We are able to increase the distribution rate for Corporate Capital Trust because of continued strong investment returns and improvements in cost efficiencies as we gain scale,” said Andy Hyltin, Chief Executive Officer of Corporate Capital Trust. “These distributions mark the 21st straight month in which the board has declared a distribution for shareholders and the 6th increase in our distribution since inception.”
