Ares Dynamic Credit Allocation Fund to Webcast 2020 Annual Meeting of Shareholders

NEW YORK—May 1, 2020—Ares Dynamic Credit Allocation Fund, Inc. (the “Fund”) (NYSE: ARDC) announced that due to the emerging public health impact of the COVID-19 outbreak, the Fund has changed the format of its 2020 Annual Meeting of Shareholders from a physical in-person meeting to a virtual webcast.

The Annual Meeting will still be held on May 21, 2020 at 12:00 p.m. Pacific Time, but will take place in a virtual meeting format via a live webcast. Instructions on how to register to attend, vote and ask questions at the Annual Meeting can be found at https://viewproxy.com/AresDynamicCreditAllocationFund/broadridgevsm. Shareholders whose shares are registered in the name of a bank, brokerage firm or other nominee that desire to vote their shares at the Annual Meeting may need to contact their bank, brokerage firm or other nominee to receive instructions on how to obtain a legal proxy and control number that will allow the shareholder to vote at the Annual Meeting. Participants are encouraged to give themselves plenty of time to log in and ensure that they can hear audio prior to the start of the Annual Meeting.

The Fund encourages eligible shareholders to vote on the proposals prior to the Annual Meeting using the instructions provided in its proxy materials. While shareholders may have the opportunity to ask questions at the Annual Meeting, only questions submitted via the live webcast that are pertinent, as determined by the chairman of the Annual Meeting, will be answered during the Meeting, subject to time constraints.

In addition, the Fund has been informed by its service provider that due to COVID-19 related difficulties, a delay has occurred in mailing of the Proxy Materials for the 2020 Annual Meeting of Shareholders.
