Capital Southwest Corporation Announces Completion of Offering of 700,000 Shares of Common Stock

Dallas, Texas - October 4, 2018 - Capital Southwest Corporation (“Capital Southwest”; “Company”; Nasdaq: CSWC), an internally managed business development company focused on providing flexible financing solutions to support the acquisition and growth of middle market businesses, today announced that it completed an offering of 700,000 shares of the Company’s common stock at a net price of $18.90 per share to the Company. The total net proceeds of the offering, before expenses, were approximately $13.2 million.

Michael S. Sarner, Chief Financial Officer, commented, “We are pleased with the interest we have received from investors and are excited to announce the completion of an equity offering above our current net asset value per share. This opportunistic capital raise was in response to direct inquiries from investors with a focus on the BDC space which have followed our progress and track record over time. The execution of the offering was excellent, as the offering price represented a discount to our closing stock price on October 1, 2018 of less than 2%. The offering was sized to allow the new investors to establish a meaningful position in our stock without significantly diluting our existing shareholder base, while also maintaining capital flexibility as we thoughtfully grow our balance sheet.”
