PURCHASE, N.Y., July 29, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MVC Capital, Inc. (NYSE:MVC) (the "Fund"), a publicly traded business development company that makes private debt and equity investments, announced today that the Board of Directors has appointed Scott J.

Mr. Seidenberg will remain CFO of MVC Capital through the end of fiscal 2013, working closely with Mr. Schuenke to ensure a smooth transition of responsibilities.

"Scott's skills and background in all aspects of corporate finance and his years of experience with MVC will serve him and our shareholders well as we transition the strategy of the Fund," said Peter Seidenberg, current CFO of MVC Capital and Managing Director of The Tokarz Group Advisers, LLC. "Scott's work over the last eight years has been impressive and I am looking forward to continuing to work with him in our new roles. I am proud to transition the CFO role to Scott as he becomes more and more active with the investment community." 

"Scott's role as CFO is a well-earned transition and reflects the culmination of years of exemplary work and increasing responsibilities as Corporate Controller," said Michael Tokarz, Chairman and Portfolio Manager of MVC Capital. "The appointment of Scott to Chief Financial Officer and Peter to a full-time senior investment professional is a natural progression for Scott and Peter that should benefit MVC shareholders." 

Mr. Schuenke has served as Corporate Controller and Chief Compliance Officer of MVC Capital since 2004. During his tenure at MVC, he has been working closely with Mr. Seidenberg on all aspects of managing the financial operations including organizing the Company's financial audit, preparing quarterly and annual financial projections, performing portfolio analysis, overseeing the valuation process consistent with ASC 820, in addition to serving on a team responsible for all new debt and equity offerings. Mr. Schuenke has spent years providing financial expertise and guidance to various MVC portfolio companies and served as interim CFO of one of MVC's largest investments.
