MVC Capital Expands Share Repurchase Program From $5 Million

Stocks in this article: MVC

PURCHASE, N.Y., April 3, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MVC Capital, Inc. (NYSE:MVC) (the "Company"), a publicly traded business development company that makes private debt and equity investments, announced today that with the gross proceeds received from the sale of Summit Research Labs, Inc., and with the Company's debt retirement, MVC's board of directors has authorized an expanded share repurchase program to opportunistically buy back shares in the market in an effort to narrow the discount. The previously authorized $5 million limit has been eliminated.

Under the repurchase program, shares may be repurchased from time to time at prevailing market prices. The repurchase program does not obligate the Fund to acquire any specific number of shares and may be discontinued at any time.

"We're pleased that our strengthened balance sheet has afforded us the opportunity to expand our share repurchase program," said Michael Tokarz, Chairman and Portfolio Manager of MVC Capital. 

The repurchases are intended to enhance shareholder value because at their discount levels they are accretive to net asset value. They also may have the effect of narrowing the discount.  The number of shares repurchased each month will be posted on the Fund's website at www.mvccapital.com . The Board expects to monitor the activity and re-evaluate the program periodically.

This press release is for informational purposes only and is not an offer to purchase or a solicitation of an offer to sell shares of the Fund's common stock. There is no assurance that the market price of the Fund's shares, either absolutely or relative to net asset value, will increase as a result of any share repurchases, or that the program will enhance shareholder value over the long-term.
