Dec 28, 2015, 15:46 ET from Harwood Feffer LLP

NEW YORK, Dec. 28, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Harwood Feffer LLP (www.hfesq.com) is investigating potential claims against the board of directors of American Capital, Ltd. ("American Capital" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: ACAS), concerning whether the board has breached its fiduciary duties to shareholders.

On December 10, 2015, an online report was published alleging that: (a) certain tax documents could suggest American Capital's acquisition of Service Experts was a fraudulent transaction; (b) American Capital's subsidiary paid an unnamed employee $140 million over the course of three years; and (c) the $140 million payment was structured in a manner that hid it from American Capital shareholders    

Our investigation concerns whether the Company board of directors has breached its fiduciary duties to shareholders, grossly mismanaged the Company, and/or committed abuses of control in connection with the foregoing.
