Keating Capital Announces Distribution Of $0.03 Per Share To Stockholders

Stocks in this article: KIPO

On December 6, 2012, the Board of Directors of Keating Capital, Inc. (Nasdaq: KIPO) ( www.KeatingCapital.com) declared a cash distribution of $0.03 per share. The distribution is payable on December 26, 2012, to stockholders of record as of December 14, 2012 (the “Record Date”). The aggregate cash distribution of $282,203 will be payable on all shares of the Company’s common stock outstanding as of the Record Date and represents a distribution of the Company’s net realized capital gains for 2012.

The Company’s net realized capital gains for 2012 were comprised of realized gains of $403,631 from the Company’s disposition of 65,000 shares of Solazyme, Inc., reduced by realized losses of $121,428 from the disposition of the Company’s entire position of 160,000 shares of NeoPhotonics Corporation.

The Company’s dividend reinvestment plan ("DRIP") provides for reinvestment of dividends, unless stockholders have previously elected to receive cash. If you are a stockholder and your shares of the Company’s common stock are held through a brokerage firm or other financial intermediary and you wish to discuss your participation status in the DRIP, please contact your broker or other financial intermediary.

Timothy J. Keating, the CEO of Keating Capital, commented that “this is Keating Capital’s first distribution of net realized capital gains and a very important milestone in our short history. As of September 30, 2012, the weighted-average holding period for the overall portfolio was 10.6 months. With a target average holding period for each investment of three years, the portfolio is still young. This capital gain distribution from the first-of-its-kind fund evidences the type of capital appreciation that is potentially available from the step-up in valuation as companies transform from private to public status.”
