WOODSIDE, Calif., March 12, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- GSV Capital Corp., ("GSV" or the "Company") (Nasdaq:GSVC), today reported financial results for the fourth quarter and fiscal year ended December 31, 2012.

"By investing in what we believe to be transformative businesses with substantial growth potential, our emphasis is on long-term value creation and the potential for sizable returns," said Michael Moe, GSV's founder and Chief Executive Officer. "At year-end 2012, our portfolio consisted of 47 primarily venture capital-backed emerging companies and translated into a net asset value of $252.6 million, or $13.07 per share. We believe clear opportunity exists as several of our portfolio companies approach eventual exit and others continue to innovate and advance their business strategies. Indicative of the types of investments we select, based on our internal estimates, we believe that a number of our top ten portfolio companies achieved revenue growth of over 100% in 2012. In 2013, we look forward to bolstering our portfolio with the new and emerging leaders shaping the growth economy."
