Total Distribution Amount for 2019: $1.49

The determination of the tax attributes of CIC’s distributions is made annually as of the end of CIC’s fiscal year based upon its taxable income and distributions paid, in each case, for the full year. Therefore, a determination as to the tax attributes of the distributions made on a quarterly basis may not be representative of the actual tax attributes for a full year. CIC intends to update shareholders quarterly with an estimated percentage of its distributions that resulted from taxable ordinary income. The actual tax characteristics of distributions to shareholders will be reported to shareholders annually on a Form 1099-DIV. The payment of future distributions on CIC’s common stock is subject to the discretion of the Board and applicable legal restrictions, and therefore, there can be no assurance as to the amount or timing of any such future distributions.

CIC may fund its cash distributions to shareholders from any sources of funds available to it, including borrowings, net investment income from operations, capital gains proceeds from the sale of assets, non-capital gains proceeds from the sale of assets, and dividends or other distributions paid to it on account of preferred and common equity investments in portfolio companies. Any such distributions can only be sustained if CIC maintains positive investment performance in future periods. There can be no assurance that CIC will be able to pay distributions at all. To date, distributions have not been paid from offering proceeds and distributions have not included a return of capital. CIC has not established limits on the amount of funds it may use from available sources to make distributions.

Leverage

Notice Pursuant to Section 61(a)(2) On December 30, 2021, CION Investment Corporation (the “Company”) held its special meeting of shareholders, at which the shareholders of the Company approved the application of the reduced asset coverage requirements set forth in Section 61(a)(2) of the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended by the Small Business Credit Availability Act, to the Company. Commencing on December 31, 2021, the Company will be required to maintain asset coverage for its senior securities of 150% (i.e., $2 of debt outstanding for each $1 of equity) rather than 200% (i.e., $1 of debt outstanding for each $1 of equity), which would permit the Company to increase the maximum amount of leverage that it is permitted to incur.
