MVC Capital Receives Notice From NYSE

PURCHASE, N.Y., March 24, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MVC Capital, Inc. (NYSE:MVC), a publicly traded business development company that makes private debt and equity investments, today announced that the New York Stock Exchange has notified the Company that it is out of compliance with the NYSE's continued listing requirements under the timely filing criteria set forth in Section 802.01E of its Listed Company Manual. Such notices are routinely issued by the NYSE in situations when there are late filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.

As previously disclosed on Form 12b-25 filed with the SEC on March 12, 2015, MVC requires additional time to complete its Form 10-Q for the three month period ended January 31, 2015 (the "First Quarter 10-Q"). The First Quarter 10-Q could not be filed within the prescribed time period for the same reasons stated in the Registrant's Form 12b-25 filed on January 14, 2015 regarding its inability to file its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended October 31, 2014 (the "2014 Annual Report") on a timely basis.

The First Quarter 10-Q is currently expected to be filed as promptly as practicable after the filing of the 2014 Annual Report. MVC expects that it will be in compliance with the NYSE listing standards upon filing its Form 10-K and First Quarter 10-Q and is working diligently to do so as soon as possible.
