Comments from Gladstone Capital Corporation’s President, Bob Marcotte: “We would like to thank KeyBank and the participating banks, the majority of which increased their commitments, for their continued confidence and support of Gladstone Capital in closing on this amendment.  The combination of the increased capacity, maturity extension and pricing improvements in this amendment are expected to provide both an immediate benefit to our current net interest income as well as support the long-term growth of our investment portfolio. This amendment represents an important milestone for Gladstone Capital and underscores our strong portfolio performance.”
