Alcentra European Floating Rate Income Fund Limited

Interim Compulsory Redemption

The Board of Directors of Alcentra European Floating Rate Income Fund Limited (the "Company") is pleased to announce that following the successful sale of the Company's investments, the Company will implement an interim compulsory redemption (the "Redemption") of its redeemable ordinary shares of no par value (the "Shares") in order to return approximately GBP45 million to shareholders.

The Redemption is being effected pro rata to holdings of Shares on the register at the close of business on 24 July 2020 (the "Redemption Date") pursuant to a general authorisation to redeem Shares held by all Shareholders in accordance with Article 49 of the Company's Articles of Incorporation.

Prior to the Redemption the Company has 91,677,667 Shares in issue.  All of the Shares redeemed on the Redemption Date will be cancelled.  No fractions of Shares will be redeemed and so the number of Shares to be redeemed for each Shareholder will be rounded down to the nearest whole number of Shares.

The Shares will be disabled in CREST after close of business on the Redemption Date and the existing ISIN number - GG00B6116N85 (the "Old ISIN") - will expire.  The new ISIN in respect of the remaining Shares which have not been redeemed - GG00BN4CFL84 (the "New ISIN") - will be enabled and available for transactions from 8.00 a.m. on 27 July 2020.  Up to and including the Redemption Date, Shares will be traded under the Old ISIN and as such, a purchaser of such Shares would have a market claim for a proportion of the redemption proceeds.  CREST will automatically transfer any open transactions as at the Redemption Date to the New ISIN.

The Redemption Price and the Relevant Percentage, being the percentage of shares redeemed by the Company on the Redemption Date, will be included in the announcement of the results of the Redemption on 27 July 2020.
