KCAP Financial, Inc. Re-Adjourns Special Meeting Of Stockholders To August 9, 2013

NEW YORK, July 19, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- KCAP Financial, Inc. (the "Company") (Nasdaq:KCAP) reconvened its special meeting of stockholders (the "Special Meeting") today.

At the reconvened special meeting, stockholders considered and approved a proposal authorizing the Company to issue shares upon conversion of the Company's 8.75% Convertible Senior Notes due 2016 into more than 20% of its common stock outstanding under applicable Nasdaq listing rules.

In addition, the Company adjourned the meeting again to allow additional time for stockholders to vote on one remaining proposal to authorize the Company, with approval of its Board of Directors, to sell shares of its common stock at a price below the then current net asset value per share of such stock. Of the votes that were cast prior to today's meeting, approximately 75% were voted in favor of the proposal authorizing the sale of shares of common stock, however the proposal also requires the affirmative vote of the non-affiliated issued and outstanding shares of the Company's common stock, which includes more than 15 million shares that remain unvoted. The adjournment will allow for additional stockholders to vote on this proposal. The special meeting will reconvene on August 9, 2013 at 10:00 a.m., Eastern Time, at Company offices, 295 Madison Avenue, 6th Floor, New York, New York 10017.

"We are encouraged by the favorable support that we have received to date from our stockholders who have voted in favor of all of the proposals recommended by the Board of Directors as described in our proxy," stated Dayl W. Pearson, CEO of KCAP Financial, Inc. "Given the importance of the remaining proposal, we want to make sure that all stockholders have sufficient time to vote their preferences. We encourage stockholders who have not yet executed a proxy to do so. This will help save us further solicitation costs on the proposal and ensure that their positions are represented."
