DENVER, Oct. 21, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- StoneCastle Financial Corp. (Nasdaq: BANX) (“StoneCastle” or the “Company”) today announced that it has filed a prospectus supplement with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”), under which it may offer and sell up to $30,000,000 of its common stock (the “Common Stock”) from time to time through an “at-the-market” equity offering program (the “ATM Offering”). The Company intends to invest the net proceeds from any sales of its common stock in accordance with its investment policy.

Sales may be made at market prices above the Company’s net asset value (exclusive of any distributing commission or discount) prevailing at the time of a sale or at prices related to prevailing market prices. As a result, sales prices may vary.
The Company’s prospectus supplement filed today supplements information contained in the accompanying prospectus contained in the shelf registration statement on Form N-2 (File No. 333-251349) for the offering of Common Stock.
