CERTIFICATE OF SECRETARY

The undersigned, being the duly elected Secretary of Great Elm Capital Corp.,  a Maryland corporation (the “Corporation”), hereby certifies that the following resolutions were adopted by the board of directors of the Corporation (the “Board”) by written consent on July 19, 2018.

WHEREAS, Section 17(g) of the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended (the “1940 Act”), and Rule 17g-1(a) thereunder require a business development company, such as the Corporation, to provide and maintain a bond which has been issued by a reputable fidelity insurance company authorized to do business in the place where the bond is issued, to protect the Corporation against larceny and embezzlement, covering each officer and employee of the Corporation who may singly, or jointly with others, have access to the securities or funds of the Corporation, either directly or through authority to draw upon such funds of, or to direct generally, the disposition of such securities, unless the officer or employee has such access solely through his position as an officer or employee of a bank (each, a “covered person”); and

WHEREAS, Rule 17g-1 under the 1940 Act specifies that the bond may be in the form of (i) an individual bond for each covered person, or a schedule or blanket bond covering such persons, (ii) a blanket bond which names the Corporation as the only insured (a “single insured bond”), or (iii) a bond which names the Corporation and one or more other parties as insureds (a “joint insured bond”), as permitted by Rule 17g-1 under the 1940 Act; and

WHEREAS, Rule 17g-1 under the 1940 Act requires that a majority of the Non-Interested Directors, approve periodically (but not less than once every 12 months) the reasonableness of the form and amount of the bond, with due consideration to the value of the aggregate assets of the Corporation to which any covered person may have access, the type and terms of the arrangements made for the custody and safekeeping of such assets, and the nature of securities and other investments to be held by the Corporation, and pursuant to factors contained in Rule 17g-1 under the 1940 Act, which are described in the accompanying memorandum attached hereto; and

WHEREAS, under Rule 17g-1 under the 1940 Act, the Corporation is required to make certain filings with the SEC and give certain notices to each member of the Board in connection with the bond, and designate an officer who shall make such filings and give such notices;

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, that having considered the expected aggregate value of the securities and funds of the Corporation to which officers or employees of the Corporation may have access (either directly or through authority to draw upon such funds or to direct generally the disposition of such securities), the type and terms of the arrangements made for the custody of such securities and funds, the nature of securities and other investments to be held by the Corporation, the accounting procedures and controls of the Corporation, the nature and method of conducting the operations of the Corporation and the requirements of Section 17(g) of the 1940 Act and Rule 17g-1 thereunder, the Board, including a majority of the Non-Interested Directors, hereby determines that the amount, type, form, premium and coverage of the fidelity bond (the “Fidelity Bond”), covering the officers and employees of the Corporation and insuring the Corporation against loss from fraudulent or dishonest acts, including larceny and embezzlement, issued by Federal Insurance, having an aggregate coverage of $1 million are fair and reasonable and the Fidelity Bond be, and hereby is, approved by the Board, including a majority of the Non-Interested Directors; and

FURTHER RESOLVED, that the Board, including a majority of the Non-Interested Directors, hereby: (i) authorizes the Corporation to share in the payment of the total annual premium of $3,500 applicable to the Fidelity Bond in an amounts equal to $1 million, determined based on the relative net assets of the Corporation and the other insured entities determined as of a date reasonably selected by the Authorized Officers; and (ii) determines that the portion of the premium to be paid by the Corporation is fair and reasonable, taking all relevant factors into consideration including, but not limited to, the number of the other parties named as insureds under the Fidelity Bond, the nature of their businesses, the amount of the joint fidelity coverage and the amount of the premium for such bond, the ratable allocation of the premium among the parties, and the extent to which the share of the premium allocated to the Corporation and the other insured entities is less than the premium the Corporation would have had to pay if it had maintained a separate fidelity bond; and

 


 

FURTHER RESOLVED, that the Authorized Officers be, and each of them hereby is, authorized, empowered and directed to take all appropriate actions, with the advice of legal counsel to the Corporation, to provide and maintain the Fidelity Bond on behalf of the Corporation; and

FURTHER RESOLVED, that the Chief Compliance Officer be and hereby is, designated as the party responsible for making the necessary filings and giving the notices with respect to such bond required by paragraph (g) of Rule 17g-1 under the 1940 Act; and

FURTHER RESOLVED, that the Authorized Officers be, and each of them hereby is, authorized, empowered and directed to file a copy of the Fidelity Bond and any other related document or instrument with the SEC.
