Pursuant to the Merger Agreement, Acquisition Sub was merged with and into the Company, with the Company continuing as the surviving corporation and a direct wholly owned subsidiary of BBDC (the “First Step”). Immediately following the First Step, the Company was merged with and into BBDC, with BBDC continuing as the surviving corporation (the “Second Step”).

The $95 million in aggregate principal amount of the issued and outstanding Notes is scheduled to be redeemed on January 22, 2021 (the “Redemption Date”) at 100% of their principal amount, plus the accrued and unpaid interest thereon through, but excluding, the Redemption Date. The Company and BBDC deposited with U.S. Bank, National Association, the trustee for the Notes (the “Trustee”), funds from cash on hand sufficient to satisfy all obligations remaining to the Redemption Date under the Indenture, dated as of February 26, 2013 (the “Indenture”), and the Second Supplemental Indenture, dated as of November 15, 2017 (the “Second Supplemental Indenture”).
