September 13, 2013 at 4:15 PM EDT

NEW YORK, Sept. 13, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Board of Directors of KCAP Financial, Inc. (Nasdaq:KCAP) approved a quarterly cash dividend of $0.25 per share of common stock for the quarter ended September 30, 2013. The dividend is payable on October 29, 2013 to shareholders of record at the close of business as of October 8, 2013.

We have adopted a dividend reinvestment plan ("DRIP") that provides for reinvestment of our dividends on behalf of our stockholders, unless a stockholder elects to receive cash. As a result, if we declare a cash dividend, our stockholders who have not "opted out" of our dividend reinvestment plan will have their cash dividends automatically reinvested in additional shares of our common stock, rather than receiving the cash dividends. Please contact your broker or other financial intermediary for more information regarding the DRIP.
