GREENWICH, Conn., Feb. 23, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Full Circle Capital Corporation (FULL) (“Full Circle Capital” or the “Company”) announced today that it intends to issue non-transferable rights to subscribe for up to 11,949,034 shares of the Company’s common stock (the “Offering”) to its stockholders of record (“Record Date Stockholders”) on March 6, 2015 (the “Record Date”). Record Date Stockholders will receive one non-transferable right for each outstanding share of common stock owned on the Record Date. The rights will entitle the holders to purchase one new share of common stock for every one right held. The subscription price for the common stock offered in the Offering is expected to be between $3.50 and $4.00 per share. The exact subscription price will be determined after the Record Date by the Company’s board of directors and the Company will then file a prospectus with the exact subscription price and other terms of the Offering.
The rights will be non-transferable and will not be listed for trading on the NASDAQ Global Market or any other stock exchange. The rights may not be purchased or sold and there will not be any market for trading the rights. The shares of common stock to be issued pursuant to the Offering will be listed for trading on the NASDAQ Global Market under the symbol “FULL.” Record Date Stockholders who fully exercise all rights issued to them are entitled to subscribe for additional shares of the Company’s common stock, if any, which were not subscribed for by other Record Date Stockholders.
Full Circle Advisors will commit, either directly or through FCA Investments LLC, a subsidiary of the Company’s investment adviser, to over-subscribe for $5.0 million in shares of Full Circle Capital’s common stock. Any over-subscription by Full Circle Advisors will be effected in accordance with the pro-rata allocation of shares in connection with the over-subscription privilege.
The Company intends to use the net proceeds from this offering for the origination of new investments in accordance with its investment objective, and for working capital and other general corporate purposes.
Ladenburg Thalmann has been selected by the Company to act as the dealer manager for the Offering.
In light of the proposed rights offering, on February 20, 2014, the Board of Directors declared monthly distributions of $0.035, $0.035 and $0.035 per share payable on May 15, 2015 for holders of record at April 30, 2015, June 15, 2015 for holders of record at May 29, 2015 and July 15, 2015 for holders of record at June 30, 2015.
For the fourth fiscal quarter of 2015 and the full fiscal year of 2016, Full Circle Advisors has agreed to waive the portion of the base management and incentive fees that Full Circle Advisors would otherwise be entitled to receive pursuant to its Investment Advisory Agreement to the extent required in order for Full Circle Capital to earn net investment income sufficient to support the distribution payment on the shares of Full Circle Capital’s common stock outstanding on the relevant record date for each monthly distribution as then declared by the Company’s board of directors. The determination of the amount to be waived will be finalized as of the end of the fiscal year for each period, with such amounts being accrued on a quarterly basis.
