Kayne Anderson Energy Development Company Announces Stockholder Approval Of Proposal To Withdraw Election To Be Treated As A Business Development Company

Kayne Anderson Energy Development Company (NYSE:KED) (the “Company”) announced today that its stockholders approved a proposal to withdraw the Company’s election to be treated as a business development company (“BDC”).

With the withdrawal of its BDC election, the Company will be treated as a non-diversified closed-end management investment company (“closed-end fund”) under the Investment Company Act of 1940. To withdraw its BDC election, the Company plans to file Form N-54C with the Securities and Exchange Commission as soon as practicable. The withdrawal will be effective immediately upon receipt by the SEC.

The Company believes the withdrawal will be beneficial for the following reasons: (i) to provide the Company with more flexibility in meeting its investment objective, (ii) to ensure that the Company has the ability to obtain sources of leverage on reasonable terms, and (iii) to allow the Company to maintain adequate liquidity to repay a portion of its outstanding leverage in the event of a market downturn.

The Company’s investment objective will remain unchanged. In order to achieve its investment objective, the Company expects that, under normal market conditions, its portfolio investments will be comprised of private MLPs (50% to 70%), public MLPs (30% to 50%) and debt securities of public and private energy companies (0% to 20%). The withdrawal does not affect the Company’s distribution policy, tax status or the tax attributes of its distributions.

With the withdrawal of its BDC election, the Company’s investment management agreement with KA Fund Advisors, LLC (the “Adviser”) will be amended to remove the incentive management fee payable to the Adviser. There will be no change in the base management fee payable to the Adviser.

At the Company’s Annual Meeting of Stockholders the following proposals were also approved: (i) election of two directors, (ii) authorization to sell shares of common stock at a price below net asset value and (iii) the ratification of PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP as the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm.
