Item 8.01. Other Events.


On February 5, 2013, the board of directors of Business Development Corporation of America (the “Company”) authorized the increase of the Company’s public offering price of its common shares from $10.70 to $10.80 per share. This increase will become effective with the Company’s next bi-monthly closing scheduled on or about February 18, 2013, and is consistent with the Company’s pricing policy, which ensures that its net offering price per share will not be less than its net asset value per share.


The Company also announced that, on that same day, its board of directors authorized an increase to its annualized distribution. The Company will pay distributions at an annualized rate of 7.75%, based upon a public offering price of $10.80 per share, effective with the Company’s next bi-monthly closing scheduled on or about February 18, 2013. With each future public offering price increase, the Company intends to sustain a 7.75% annualized distribution rate, subject to further approval by its board of directors.


A copy of the press release announcing the Company’s increase to its public offering price and annualized distribution is attached as Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K.
