StoneCastle Financial Corp. has an “Opt-Out” dividend reinvestment plan. The share reinvestment is offered at a 3% discount to the corporation’s closing price calculated over a five-day period. If your shares are registered directly with us or with a brokerage firm that participates in our plan, all distributions are automatically reinvested in our common stock. An investor would need to specifically request for an “Opt-Out” to receive the distributions. If your shares are not registered with us, your brokerage firm does not participate in our plan, or you are unsure if you are enrolled, please contact your brokerage firm.
The transfer agent calculates the dividend reinvestment amount from the closing stock price over the immediate five-day period prior to record date. The share equivalent is based on a 3% discount to the average closing price. Brokers who participate in the plan have the option of taking the equivalent cash or taking equivalent shares. For brokers taking equivalent cash, the broker-dealer is responsible for the timing of the reinvestment in StoneCastle Financial Corp.

StoneCastle Financial Corp. is a unique investment vehicle. We have no direct competitors. We are the only publicly traded closed end investment management company dedicated to investing in community banks. We are typically compared to BDC’s and other investment income vehicles, however, we believe the risk and credit profile of StoneCastle Financial Corp. is far more competitive than what investors can obtain in other investment income vehicles in the public market today.
Another overlooked differentiator from other investment income vehicles is that StoneCastle Financial Corp. provides a greater amount of depth and transparency into our financial results on a quarterly basis. The Company hosts a quarterly investor conference call and takes time to discuss the results with investors and the analysts that cover StoneCastle Financial Corp.
