BlackRock Kelso Capital Corporation Declares Regular Fourth Quarter Dividend Of $0.26 Per Share, Announces September 30, 2011 Quarterly Financial Results

Share Repurchase Plan

In 2008, our Board of Directors approved a share repurchase plan under which we may repurchase up to 2.5% of our outstanding shares of common stock from time to time in open market or privately negotiated transactions. In 2009, our Board of Directors approved an extension and increase to the plan which authorized us to repurchase up to an additional 2.5% of our outstanding shares of common stock. In May 2011, the repurchase plan was further extended through June 30, 2012, with 1,594,971 shares remaining authorized for repurchase. During the three and nine months ended September 30, 2011, we purchased a total of 200,000 and 400,000 shares of our common stock on the open market for $2.0 million and $3.5 million, respectively, including brokerage commissions. Since inception of the repurchase plan through September 30, 2011, we have purchased 1,361,679 shares of our common stock on the open market for $9.0 million, including brokerage commissions.

Notice is hereby given in accordance with Section 23(c) of the Investment Company Act of 1940 that from time to time we may purchase shares of our common stock in the open market at prevailing market prices.

Supplemental Information

The Company reports its financial results on a GAAP basis; however, management believes that evaluating the Company’s ongoing operating results may be enhanced if investors have additional non-GAAP basis financial measures. Management reviews non-GAAP financial measures to assess ongoing operations and, for the reasons described below, considers them to be effective indicators, for both management and investors, of the Company’s financial performance over time. The Company’s management does not advocate that investors consider such non-GAAP financial measures in isolation from, or as a substitute for, financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP.
