7.375% Notes due 2019
of KCAP Financial, Inc.
(CUSIP No. 48668E200; NYSE: KAP)*
Redemption Date: November 26, 2018
NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN, pursuant to Section 1104 of the Indenture dated as of October 10, 2012 (the “Base Indenture”), between KCAP Financial, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), and U.S. Bank National Association (the “Trustee), and Section 1.01(h) of the First Supplemental Indenture dated as of October 10, 2012 (the “First Supplemental Indenture,” and together with the Base Indenture, the “Indenture”), that the Company is electing to exercise its option to redeem, in full, the 7.375% Notes due 2019 (the “Notes”). The Company will redeem all of the issued and outstanding Notes ($7,000,000 in aggregate principal amount) in full on November 26, 2018 (the “Redemption Date”). The redemption price for the Notes equals $25 in principal amount per Note being redeemed (or $7,000,000 in aggregate principal amount of the Notes), plus the accrued and unpaid interest thereon from September 30, 3018, through, but excluding, the Redemption Date (the “Redemption Payment”). The aggregate accrued interest on the Notes payable on the Redemption Date will be approximately $81,739.58 (or approximately $0.29 on each $25 principal amount of the Notes).
On the Redemption Date, the Redemption Payment will become due and payable to the Holders of the Notes. Interest on the $7,000,000 in principal amount of Notes being redeemed will cease to accrue on and after the Redemption Date. Unless the Company defaults in paying the Redemption Payment with respect to such Notes, the only remaining right of the Holders with respect to such Notes will be to receive payment of the Redemption Payment upon presentation and surrender of such Notes to the Trustee in its capacity as Paying Agent. Notes held in book-entry form will be redeemed and the Redemption Payment with respect to such Notes will be paid in accordance with the applicable procedures of The Depository Trust Company.
Capitalized terms used but not defined herein shall have the meaning ascribed to them in the Indenture.
Questions relating to this notice of redemption should be directed to U.S. Bank National Association via telephone at 1-800-934-6802. Payment of the Redemption Payment to the Holders will be made upon presentation and surrender of the Notes in the following manner:

Holders should consult their tax advisors regarding the withholding and other tax consequences of the redemption.
