When declaring distributions, Horizon’s Board of Directors reviews estimates of taxable income available for distribution, which may differ from consolidated net income under generally accepted accounting principles due to (i) changes in unrealized appreciation and amortization, (ii) temporary and permanent differences in the recognition of income and expenses, and (iii) the amount of indirect income carried over from one year for distribution in the following year. The final determination of taxable income for each taxation year, as well as the tax attributes of distributions in that taxation year, will be made after the close of the taxation year.

Horizon maintains a “dividend reinvestment plan” (“DRIP”) which provides for the reinvestment of distributions on behalf of its shareholders, unless a shareholder has elected to receive the distributions in cash. Accordingly, if Horizon declares a distribution, its shareholders who have not “opted out” of the DRIP on the distribution record date will have their distribution automatically reinvested in additional shares of Horizon common stock. Horizon has the option of satisfying DRIP share requirements through the issuance of new common shares or through open market purchases of common shares by the DRIP administrator. Newly issued shares will be valued based on the final closing price of Horizon common stock on a specific valuation date for each distribution, as determined by Horizon’s board of directors. Shares purchased on the open market to satisfy the requirements of the DRIP will be valued based on the average price of the applicable shares purchased by the administrator of the DRIP Plan, before any related brokerage or other fees, which are borne by Horizon.
