GREENWICH, Conn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Eagle Point Credit Company Inc. (the “Company”) (NYSE:ECC, NYSE:ECCA, NYSE:ECCZ) has today announced the Company’s unaudited estimate of the range of (1) its net investment income (“NII”) per share of common stock for the quarter ended March 31, 2016, and (2) its net asset value (“NAV”) per share of common stock as of March 31, 2016.
Based on preliminary results, the Company’s unaudited estimate of NII per share of common stock for the first quarter of 2016 was between $0.60 and $0.62, and the Company’s unaudited estimate of NAV per share as of March 31, 2016 was between $12.97 and $13.07.
The range of estimated NAV per share reflects a reduction for the Company’s previously declared distribution of $0.60 per share of common stock, which is carried as a liability until paid. This distribution is payable on April 29, 2016 to stockholders of record as of March 31, 2016.
These estimated ranges reflect management’s preliminary estimate for the period ending March 31, 2016, are announced for information purposes only, and are subject to revision when the Company’s quarter-end financial results and NAV are finally accepted by the Company’s board of directors.
While the Company regularly publishes management’s estimated range of NAV per share of common stock on its website (www.eaglepointcreditcompany.com) each month, the publication of the Company’s estimated range of its NII per share of common stock for the first quarter represents the first time the Company has published such an estimate. Going forward, and as noted in the Company’s 2015 letter to stockholders that accompanied the Company’s annual report for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2015, the Company intends to publish management’s estimate of the range of NII per share of common stock on its website in connection with its publication of the estimated range of the Company’s month-end NAV coinciding with each calendar quarter-end. Such estimates of NII per share will generally be made available within the first fifteen days after each calendar quarter end and updated on the website, if applicable, during the latter part of the applicable month.
