Exhibit 99.1

New Mountain Finance Corporation Extends Share Repurchase Program

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--January 3, 2017--New Mountain Finance Corporation (NYSE: NMFC) (“NMFC”) today announced that its board of directors has authorized an extension of a program for the purpose of repurchasing up to $50 million worth of its common stock, to be implemented at the discretion of NMFC’s management team. Under the repurchase program, NMFC may, but is not obligated to, repurchase its outstanding common stock in the open market from time to time provided that NMFC complies with the prohibitions under its Code of Ethics and the guidelines specified in Rule 10b-18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, including certain price, market volume and timing constraints. Unless further extended by NMFC’s board of directors, NMFC expects the repurchase program to be in place until the earlier of December 31, 2017 or until $50 million worth of NMFC’s outstanding shares of common stock have been repurchased. To date, approximately $2.9 million worth of repurchases have been made by NMFC under the repurchase program.

NMFC’s board of directors authorized the extension of the repurchase program because it believes that sustained market volatility and uncertainty may cause NMFC’s common stock to be undervalued from time to time. The timing and number of shares to be repurchased will depend on a number of factors, including market conditions and alternative investment opportunities. In addition, any subsequent repurchases will also be conducted in accordance with the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended. There are no assurances that NMFC will engage in additional repurchases, but if market conditions warrant, NMFC now has an extended period of time to take advantage of situations where NMFC’s management believes share repurchases would be advantageous to NMFC and to its shareholders.
