GSV Capital Corp. Reports Second Quarter 2013 Results Of Operations

WOODSIDE, Calif., Aug. 7, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- GSV Capital Corp., ("GSV" or the "Company") (Nasdaq:GSVC), today reported financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2013.

"We are pleased to report an increase in our net asset value of $0.18 to $12.87 per share for the second quarter, reflecting what we believe is the pre-IPO value creation that is a hallmark of the companies in our portfolio," said Michael Moe, GSV's founder and Chief Executive Officer. "Momentum is building as we believe several of these later stage companies approach exit, including Control4 (Nasdaq:CTRL) which successfully completed its IPO last Friday. We are equally enthusiastic about the prospects for the latest additions to our portfolio, including our new top ten investment position in online education provider Coursera."
