INFORMATION STATEMENT

Action by Consent of the Unitholders

 

 

WE ARE NOT ASKING YOU FOR A PROXY

AND YOU ARE REQUESTED NOT TO SEND US A PROXY

GENERAL

This Information Statement is being furnished to you as a holder (a “Unitholder”) of limited liability company units (the “Units”) of SCP Private Credit Income BDC LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (the “Company”), in connection with the action by consent of the holders of our issued and outstanding Units taken without a meeting to approve the action described in this Information Statement. In this Information Statement, all references to the “Company,” “we,” “us,” or “our” refer to SCP Private Credit Income BDC LLC. We are sending this Information Statement to our Unitholders of record on or about June 3, 2021.

The entire cost of furnishing this Information Statement will be borne by the Company.

Action by Unitholder

The Company’s board of directors (the “Board”) unanimously approved resolutions to approve and recommend the approval of the First Amendment to the Second Amended and Restated Limited Liability Company Agreement (the “Amendment”) to the Company’s Unitholders. As of the close of business on May 5, 2021, the date for the determination of Unitholders entitled to give consent, we had 9,586,174 Units outstanding. Each Unit is entitled to one vote.

On June 2, 2021, pursuant to Section 18-302(d) of the Delaware Limited Liability Company Act (the “Act”), and as provided by the Second Amended and Restated Limited Liability Company Agreement (the “LLC Agreement”), the Company received consent (the “Consent”) that approved the Amendment from our Unitholders holding an aggregate of 9,586,174 of our Units, representing 100% of our issued and outstanding Units as of such date.

ITEM 1. APPROVAL OF THE FIRST AMENDMENT TO THE SECOND AMENDED AND RESTATED

LIMITED LIABILITY COMPANY AGREEMENT

The Board recommended the approval of the Amendment. The LLC Agreement was initially approved by the Board and was executed on February 25, 2020.

Background

On May 5, 2021 the Board, including a majority of the directors who are not “interested persons” of the Company, as defined in Section 2(a)(19) of the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended (the “Independent Directors”), approved via unanimous written consent the Amendment and unanimously recommended its approval by our Unitholder. The Board considered whether it would be in the best interests of the Company and its Unitholders to approve the Amendment. On June 2, 2021, the Company’s Unitholders approved the Amendment via the Consent. A copy of the Amendment is attached hereto as Annex A.

Summary of Changes in the Amendment and Rationale

On June 2, 2021, the Company’s Unitholders approved the Amendment via the Consent in a manner required by the Act and pursuant to the LLC Agreement. The Amendment will not become effective until 20 calendar days after this Information Statement is sent to the Unitholders. The Amendment modified the definition of “Investment Period,” as described further below.

Investment Period.    The Amendment revises the definition of “Investment Period” in the LLC Agreement to extend the end of the Company’s Investment Period to the close of business on December 31, 2022.

In approving the Amendment and recommending its approval to our Unitholders, the Board believes that the extension of the Investment Period is in the best interest of the Company and its Unitholders. The Company sought to extend the Investment Period to provide additional time for the Adviser to ramp the Company’s investment portfolio. As a result of this change, the Company will have additional time to take advantage of future investment opportunities and to put capital to work.

Required Vote

Pursuant to Section 15.1 of the LLC Agreement, an amendment to the LLC Agreement requires approval of the Independent Directors and the approval of Unitholders, which approval will be obtained pursuant to the procedures set forth in Section 3.2 of the LLC Agreement. Pursuant to Section 3.2 of the LLC Agreement, an amendment to the LLC Agreement will require the approval of the Independent Directors and will be deemed approved by the Unitholders unless a majority of the limited partners of SCP Private Credit (BDC) Access LP, an investment fund created by a financial institution unaffiliated with the Company that holds all of the Company’s outstanding Units (the “Access Fund LPs”), affirmatively vote to reject the item.

Non-Votes and Objections

Because the Amendment will be deemed approved by the Unitholders unless a majority of the Access Fund LPs vote to reject the item, non-votes (essentially, Access Fund LPs who do not respond) have the effect of a vote for the Amendment. Objections have the effect of a vote against the Amendment.
