Stocks in this article: MVC

PURCHASE, N.Y., Sept. 3, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MVC Capital, Inc. (NYSE:MVC), a publicly traded business development company that makes private debt and equity investments, announced today an $8 million debt investment in Morey's Seafood International LLC ("Morey's"), a Minnesota-based manufacturer, marketer, and distributor of wholesale seafood and specialty products to major grocers, and food service broad liners nationwide.

MVC's $8 million investment was part of a refinancing undertaken by Morey's to help fuel its growth.

Over the past decade, Morey's Seafood has transitioned from a regional niche manufacturer and distribution business into a nationally branded seafood company. Over the past several years, Morey's Seafood has experienced significant growth as a result of process improvement measures and continued high-quality sourcing, coupled with favorable market dynamics.

"Through a well-executed business plan, Morey's Seafood has reported strong financial results over the past few years and is anticipating further business expansion," said James O'Connor, Managing Director of The Tokarz Group Advisers, LLC, investment adviser to MVC Capital.

"This investment reflects a further step in executing against our yielding strategy by partnering with strong management teams in middle-market businesses that have niche market opportunities with favorable growth potential," said Michael Tokarz, Chairman & Portfolio Manager of MVC Capital, Inc.
