NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Sixth Street Specialty Lending, Inc. (NYSE: TSLX) (“TSLX” or “the Company”) announced today that due to a technical error by its dividend reinvestment plan administrator, all shareholders will receive their dividend for the October 15, 2020 payment date in cash, rather than only those who have elected to “opt out” of the dividend investment plan. The record date for this dividend, which was September 15, 2020, and the payment date remain unchanged.
The Company expects this issue to be resolved by the administrator prior to future dividend payments. However, the Company encourages its shareholders to re-confirm their dividend election preferences with their broker or other applicable party.
