New Mountain Finance Corporation Announces Pricing of 3,750,000 Shares of Common Stock

NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–New Mountain Finance Corporation (the “Company”) (NYSE:NMFC) announced
today that it has priced an underwritten offering of 3,750,000 shares of
its common stock at a public offering price of $13.57 per share. The
Company’s investment adviser, New Mountain Finance Advisers BDC, L.L.C.
(the “Adviser”), has agreed to bear the sales load of $0.42 per share
payable to the underwriters. In addition, the Adviser has agreed to pay
the underwriters an additional supplemental payment of $0.18 per share,
which reflects the difference between the actual public offering price
of $13.57 per share and the net proceeds of $13.75 per share received by
the Company in this offering. The net amount received by the Company is
believed to be in excess of book value and is therefore accretive to
shareholders. The closing of the offering is subject to customary
closing conditions and is expected to take place on February 14,
2019. In connection with the offering, the Company has granted the
underwriters for the offering an option to purchase up to an additional
562,500 shares of the Company’s common stock.

The Company intends to use the net proceeds from the offering primarily
for new investments in portfolio companies in accordance with its
investment objective and strategies. The Company may also use a portion
of such net proceeds for other general corporate purposes, including to
temporarily repay indebtedness (which will be subject to re-borrowing),
and other working capital needs.

The joint-lead book-running managers for the offering are Wells Fargo
Securities, LLC, Morgan Stanley & Co. LLC, Goldman Sachs & Co. LLC and
Keefe, Bruyette & Woods, A Stifel Company. The co-managers
