Stockholder Meeting Regarding Proposed Reorganization of Ares Management's Closed-End Funds to be Held on July 14, 2015

NEW YORK—June 18, 2015—Ares Dynamic Credit Allocation Fund, Inc. (NYSE: ARDC) and Ares Multi-Strategy Credit Fund, Inc. (NYSE: ARMF) (each a “Fund” and together, the “Funds”) will hold a joint special meeting of stockholders (the “Special Meeting”) on July 14, 2015, beginning at 12:00 p.m. Pacific time at the offices of Ares Capital Management II LLC (the “Adviser”). Stockholders of each Fund of record as of the close of business on May 22, 2015 are entitled to vote at the Special Meeting or any adjournment, postponement or delay thereof.

The purpose of the Special Meeting is to request stockholder approvals related to the proposed reorganization of ARMF into ARDC, whereby ARDC would acquire all of the assets and assume the stated liabilities of ARMF in exchange for newly issued shares of ARDC, with ARDC being the surviving Fund (the “Reorganization”), as described in the Joint Proxy Statement/Prospectus for the Special Meeting (the “Joint Proxy Statement/Prospectus”). The consummation of the Reorganization is contingent on the approval by ARDC stockholders of other proposals relating to amendments to certain of ARDC’s fundamental investment restrictions and 80% investment policy as described in the Joint Proxy Statement/Prospectus.

It is currently expected that the Reorganization will be completed during the third quarter of 2015, subject to required stockholder approvals and the satisfaction of applicable regulatory requirements and other customary closing conditions. The changes to ARDC’s fundamental investment restrictions and 80% investment policy would take effect immediately if approved by stockholders.
