NEW YORK, Dec. 13, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Kohlberg Capital Corporation (Nasdaq:KCAP) ("Kohlberg Capital") today announced that its Board of Directors has declared a cash dividend of $0.17 per share on shares of its common stock for the quarter ended December 31, 2010. The dividend is payable on January 29, 2011 to shareholders of record as of December 24, 2010.
We have adopted a dividend reinvestment plan ("DRIP") that provides for reinvestment of our dividends on behalf of our stockholders, unless a stockholder elects to receive cash. As a result, if we declare a cash dividend, our stockholders who have not "opted out" of our dividend reinvestment plan will have their cash dividends automatically reinvested in additional shares of our common stock, rather than receiving the cash dividends. Please contact your broker or other financial intermediary for more information regarding the DRIP.
