NEW YORK, Dec. 2, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- StoneCastle Financial Corp. (Nasdaq:BANX) ( "StoneCastle Financial" or the "Company"), an SEC registered investment company, today announced that its Board of Directors has declared a cash dividend of $0.50 per share for the fourth quarter of 2014. The dividend will be payable on Friday, January 2, 2015 to shareholders of record on December 12, 2014.
A portion of the Company's distributions may include sources other than net investment income, including a return of capital. Investors should understand that a return of capital is not a distribution from income or gains of a Company. As required under the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended, a notice with the estimated components of the distribution will be sent to shareholders at the time of payment if it does not consist solely of net investment income. The notice should not be used to prepare tax returns as the estimates indicated in the notice may differ from the ultimate federal income tax characterization of distributions. After the end of each calendar year, investors will be sent a Form 1099-DIV informing them how to report distributions received during that year for federal income tax purposes.
