BNY Mellon Alcentra Global Credit Income 2024 Target Term Fund, Inc. (NYSE: DCF) today announced a monthly cash distribution of $0.035 per share of common stock, payable on June 26, 2023, to shareholders of record at the close of business on June 9, 2023. The ex-dividend date is June 8, 2023. The previous distribution declared in April was $0.050 per share of common stock.
By reducing the Fund's monthly distribution amount, the Fund is attempting to strike a balance between its investment objectives of seeking to provide high current income and of returning at least the Original NAV (as defined below) on or about December 1, 2024 (the "Termination Date").1 The Fund currently intends to set aside and retain in its net assets a portion of its net investment income, and possibly all or a portion of its capital gains. This will reduce the amounts otherwise available for distribution prior to the Termination Date, and the Fund may incur taxes on such retained amount. Such retained income or capital gains, net of any taxes, will constitute a portion of the liquidating distribution returned to holders of Common Shares on or about the Termination Date.
As portfolio and market conditions may change, the distribution rate, the composition of distributions and the Fund's policy to declare distributions monthly may be subject to change, including by the Fund's Board of Directors.

1 The Fund's investment objectives are to seek high current income and to return at least $9.835 per Common Share (the initial public offering price per Common Share (as defined below) after deducting a sales load of $0.165 per Common Share but before deducting offering costs of $0.02 per Common Share ('Original NAV')) to holders of record of shares of the Fund’s common stock ("Common Shares") on the Termination Date (subject to certain extensions). The objective to return at least the Original NAV is not an express or implied guarantee obligation of the Fund, BNY Mellon Investment Adviser, Inc., Alcentra NY LLC or any other entity, and an investor may receive less than the Original NAV upon termination of the Fund. There is no assurance the Fund will achieve either of its investment objectives and achieving its investment objectives will depend on a number of factors, including market conditions and the success of various portfolio strategies and cash flow management techniques. Based on market conditions as of the date of this press release, management anticipates that the likelihood of the Fund achieving its objective of returning its Original NAV upon termination of the Fund has decreased substantially since the Fund's inception.
