Kayne Anderson BDC


Kayne Anderson BDC, Inc. (“KBDC”) was formed to make investments in middle-market companies and commenced operations on February 5, 2021. KBDC is an externally managed, closed-end, non-diversified management investment company that has elected to be regulated as a business development company (“BDC”) under the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended (the “1940 Act”).

Investment Objective and Strategy

KBDC’s investment objective is to generate current income and, to a lesser extent, capital appreciation. We intend to achieve our investment objective by investing primarily in first lien senior secured loans, with a secondary focus on unitranche and split-lien loans to middle market companies.

Under normal market conditions, we expect at least 90% of our portfolio (including investments purchased with proceeds from borrowings under credit facilities and issuance of senior unsecured notes) to be invested in first lien senior secured, unitranche and split-lien loans. We expect that a majority of these debt investments will be made in core middle market companies and will generally have stated maturities of three to six years. We expect that the loans in which we principally invest will be to companies that have principal business activities in the United States.

We intend to execute on our investment objective by (1) accessing the established loan sourcing channels developed by Kayne Anderson’s middle market private credit platform (“KAPC” or “Kayne Anderson Private Credit”), which includes an extensive network of private equity firms, other middle market lenders, financial advisors, intermediaries and management teams, (2) selecting investments within our middle market company focus, (3) implementing KAPC’s underwriting process and (4) drawing upon its experience and resources and the broader Kayne Anderson network.
