Item 5.02. Departure of Directors or Principal Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Principal Officers.
On July 6, 2005 and July 7, 2005, respectively, James P. Oliver and Peter Saltz notified the Company of their resignations from the Companys Board of Directors. Giving effect to their resignations, the Companys Board of Directors will consist of five members, three of whom are not interested persons within the definition set forth in the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended. As a result of these resignations, the Company believes that it has corrected its previously-disclosed non-compliance with the requirement of the Investment Company Act that a majority of the members of its board of directors not be interested persons.
A copy of the press release announcing the resignations of Messrs. Saltz and Oliver and announcing certain other information regarding the Company and its portfolio investments is filed with this report as Exhibit 99.1 and is incorporated herein by reference.
