NEW YORK, May 20, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- StoneCastle Financial Corp. (Nasdaq:BANX) ("StoneCastle Financial" or the "Company"), an investment company registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC"), today announced results of the annual meeting of stockholders of the Company held on May 19, 2015 with respect to the election of directors. It also announced the adjournment of the meeting with respect to Proposal 2, the approval of a plan of reorganization, to June 8, 2015 to permit the continued solicitation of additional votes.

Election of Directors

Messrs. Emil Henry and Joshua Siegel, Class II directors of the Company, who were standing for re-election at the meeting, were elected by stockholders. The current directors of the Company whose terms were not expiring this year and who therefore were not standing for re-election at the meeting remain in office to serve the term for which they were previously elected.

Approval of Agreement and Plan of Reorganization

The meeting has been adjourned until 10:30 a.m. Eastern time on Monday, June 8, 2015 at the Park Central Hotel, 870 7th Avenue at 56th Street, New York, NY 10019 to permit the continued solicitation of additional votes with respect to the approval of an Agreement and Plan of Reorganization, pursuant to which the Company would be reorganized into a newly formed Delaware statutory trust.

The Company encourages stockholders who have not yet voted their shares to do so now in order to reach a quorum and to avoid the cost of further adjournments. The proxy materials received by stockholders contain important information regarding the proposal.

If stockholders have any questions regarding the proposal, or need assistance with voting, they may call Georgeson, the Company's proxy solicitor, toll free at 888-566-8006 or the Company at 347-887-0324.
