Other Events
On January 11, 2024, a portfolio company of Horizon Technology Finance Corporation (the “Company”), Nexii Building Solutions Inc., and its affiliates, Nexii Construction Inc, NBS IP Inc., and Nexii Holdings Inc. (collectively, “Nexii”), a designer and manufacturer of high performance and sustainable building products obtained an Initial Order on January 11, 2024 (the “Initial Order”) under the Companies Creditors Arrangement Act (the “CCAA” and Nexii's proceedings thereunder, the “CCAA Proceedings”) from the Supreme Court of British Columbia (the “Court”) in Vancouver. The Initial Order provides for, among other things, a stay of proceedings in favor of Nexii, the approval of debtor-in-possession financing (“DIP Financing”) and the appointment of KSV Restructuring Inc. as monitor of Nexii (in such capacity, the “Monitor”). The Company’s portion of the DIP Financing is not to exceed $2,330,000 and will be secured by all assets of Nexii and be senior in priority to Nexii’s existing credit facilities.
The stay of proceedings and DIP Financing is intended to provide Nexii with the time and stability required to consider potential restructuring transactions and maximize the value of its assets for the benefit of its stakeholders. This may include the sale of all or substantially all of the business or assets of Nexii through a Court-supervised sales process. In that regard, Nexii intends to seek Court approval to launch a sale process for its business and assets (the “Sale Process”) on or around January 22, 2024.
The Company’s debt investments in Nexii have been placed on non-accrual status effective December 1, 2023. The amount of recovery of the Company’s investments in Nexii is not yet determinable, but the Company is actively monitoring the proceedings on an ongoing basis to evaluate its expected recovery of any amounts on its investments.

Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the Registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
