NEW YORK, April 29, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Tripp Levy PLLC, a leading national securities and shareholder rights law firm, announces that it is investigating the acquisition of MCG Capital Corporation (NASDAQ: MCGC) ("MCG" or the "Company") on behalf of its shareholders. PennantPark Floating Rate Capital Ltd. ("PFLT") and MCG announced that they have entered into a definitive agreement under which PFLT will acquire MCG in a stock and cash transaction currently valued at approximately $175 million, or approximately $4.75 per MCG share. Under the terms of the transaction, MCG stockholders will receive $4.521 in PFLT shares for each MCGC share. Additionally, each MCG shareholder will receive $0.226 per share in cash. Following the transaction, PFLT stockholders are expected to own approximately 56% of the combined company and MCG stockholders will own approximately 44%.
Our investigation has determined that the offer price of only $4.75 per share unfairly under-values the true going forward inherent value of MCG and that shareholders are not receiving the maximum value for their shares. Indeed, among other things, the Company has over $105 million of cash on its balance sheet or $2.85 per share in cash, and no long-term debt. Further, the book value per share of the Company is $4.69 per share. The investigation further seeks to determine whether the senior management of MCG are entering into this deal for their own self-interests to the detriment of the Company's shareholders.
If you are a shareholder of MCG and would like additional information as to how the acquisition may affect your rights as a shareholder, and how you may be eligible to obtain a higher price for your shares, please call us at no cost at:
