Goldman Sachs BDC, Inc.


2.875% Notes due 2026


November 19, 2020

The following sets forth the final terms of the 2.875% Notes due 2026 and should only be read together with the preliminary prospectus supplement dated November 19, 2020, together with the accompanying prospectus dated November 19, 2020, relating to these securities (the “Preliminary Prospectus”), and supersedes the information in the Preliminary Prospectus to the extent inconsistent with the information in the Preliminary Prospectus. In all other respects, this pricing term sheet is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Preliminary Prospectus. Terms used herein but not defined herein shall have the respective meanings as set forth in the Preliminary Prospectus. All references to dollar amounts are references to U.S. dollars.

Goldman Sachs BDC, Inc. expects that delivery of the Notes will be made to investors on or about November 24, 2020, which will be the third business day following the date of pricing of the notes (such settlement cycle being herein referred to as “T+3”). Under Rule 15c6-1 under the Exchange Act, trades in the secondary market generally are required to settle in two business days, unless the parties to any such trade expressly agree otherwise. Accordingly, purchasers who wish to trade notes on the date of pricing will be required, by virtue of the fact that the notes initially will settle T+3, to specify an alternate settlement cycle at the time of any such trade to prevent a failed settlement. Purchasers of notes who wish to trade notes on the date of pricing should consult their own advisor.
