The July 2013 supplemental semi-annual dividend will be paid out of Main Street's undistributed taxable income (or "spillover income"), or taxable net income in excess of dividends paid, as of June 30, 2013.  As previously discussed in the May 13, 2013 press release, which can be found on Main Street's website at, Main Street estimates that the supplemental semi-annual dividend represents a payout of approximately one-sixth of Main Street's estimated spillover income as of March 31, 2013.

Based on the regular monthly dividends declared for the third quarter of 2013 and the $0.20 per share supplemental semi-annual cash dividend payable in July 2013, Main Street will have paid $9.96 per share in cumulative dividends since its October 2007 initial public offering. The combination of the current regular monthly dividend rate of $0.155 per share and the current supplemental semi-annual dividend rate of $0.20 per share  equate to annualized cash dividends of $2.26 per share, or an annualized yield of 8.4% based on Main Street's current share price.
