Main Street Capital Closes $30 Million Multi-Year Credit Facility


HOUSTON, Oct. 27 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Main Street Capital Corporation (Nasdaq: MAIN) ("Main Street") announced today the closing of a $30 million, three-year investment credit facility (the "Investment Facility") that will be used to provide additional liquidity in support of future investment and operational activities. Main Street has no borrowings currently outstanding under the Investment Facility. In addition to the expanded liquidity provided by the Investment Facility, Main Street has over $40 million of unrestricted cash and cash equivalents that are also available for future investment and operational activities.

"We are pleased with the confidence and support demonstrated by our lenders in providing Main Street with a multi-year credit facility despite the difficult credit environment," said Vince Foster, Main Street's Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer.

The Investment Facility allows for an increase in the total size of the facility up to $75 million, subject to certain conditions, and has a maturity date of October 24, 2011. Borrowings under the Investment Facility bear interest, subject to Main Street's election, on a per annum basis equal to (i) the applicable LIBOR rate plus 2.75% or (ii) the applicable base rate plus 0.75%. Main Street will pay unused commitment fees of 0.375% per annum on the average unused lender commitments under the Investment Facility. Branch Bank & Trust Company ("BB&T") and Compass Bank are the lenders under the Investment Facility.

Due to the maturation of Main Street's investment portfolio and the additional flexibility provided by the Investment Facility, Main Street has unilaterally reduced the commitments under its existing $100 million Treasury Secured Revolving Credit Facility (the "Treasury Facility") to $50 million. The reduction in the size of the Treasury Facility will reduce the amount of unused commitment fees paid by Main Street. Main Street has no borrowings currently outstanding under the Treasury Facility.
