On January 3, 2018, Main Street Capital Corporation (“Main Street”) announced that its board of directors (“Board”) approved an executive succession plan (the “Plan”) for Main Street.  Pursuant to the Plan, Vincent D. Foster, co-founder of Main Street, and who has served as its Chairman and Chief Executive Officer (“CEO”) since its 2007 initial public offering, will transition the role and responsibility of CEO to Dwayne L. Hyzak, with this transition presently planned to occur in the fourth quarter of 2018.  After which, Mr. Foster will continue to serve as Main Street’s Executive Chairman, and in this capacity he will work closely with Mr. Hyzak as CEO.


On January 3, 2018, the Board also increased the size of the Board from nine to ten directors and elected Mr. Hyzak as a director to fill the vacancy created by the increase to serve the remainder of the current term.


Mr. Hyzak has served as Main Street’s Chief Operating Officer since 2014 and President since 2015.  He also serves as a member of Main Street’s investment committee and executive committee.  Reference is also made to the biographical information with respect to Mr. Hyzak set forth under the heading “Executive Officers” in the 2017 Main Street proxy statement, which description is incorporated herein by reference.


As an employee of Main Street, Mr. Hyzak will not receive compensation for his services as a member of the Board.  There are no current or proposed transactions between Main Street and Mr. Hyzak or his immediate family members that would require disclosure under Item 404(a) of Regulation S-K promulgated by the Securities and Exchange Commission.
