If the transactions contemplated by the Externalization Agreement are completed and closing conditions are satisfied or appropriately waived, upon closing of the Externalization, the Company will commence operations as an externally managed BDC managed by the Adviser.On November 8, 2018, we entered into an agreement with LibreMax Intermediate Holdings, LP (a??LibreMaxa??) under which our wholly-owned subsidiary Commodore Holdings, LLC (a??Commodorea??) agreed to sell Katonah Debt Advisors, L.L.C.

(a??Trimaran Advisors Managementa?? and, together with Katonah Debt Advisors and Trimaran Advisors, the a??Disposed Manager Affiliatesa??) to LibreMax for a cash purchase price of approximately $37.9 million (the a??LibreMax Transactiona??). In connection with the closing of the LibreMax Transaction on December 31, 2018, Commodore sold the Disposed Manager Affiliates, which manage collateralized loan obligation funds (a??CLO Fundsa??) to LibreMax for a cash purchase price of approximately $37.9 million.Financial Highlights

Liquidity and Capital ResourcesAt December 31, 2018, we had unrestricted cash and short-term investments of approximately $50.2 million, total assets of approximately $285.5 million and stockholders' equity of approximately $158.0 million, and our net asset value per common share was $4.23. As of December 31, 2018, we had $103.8 million of borrowings outstanding ($100.4 million net of discount) with a weighted average interest rate of approximately 6.0%. At December 31, 2018, we had approximately $23.6 million of available capacity under our Revolving Credit Facility.DistributionsGenerally, we seek to fund distributions to shareholders from current distributable earnings, primarily from net interest and dividend income generated by our investment portfolio. However, a portion of distributions paid to shareholders may be a return of capital. We announced a regular quarterly distribution of $0.10 per share for the quarter ended December 31, 2018. The record date for this distribution was January 7, 2019 and the distribution was paid on January 31, 2019. Tax characteristics of all distributions paid by us in 2018 have been reported to stockholders on Form 1099-DIV after the end of the calendar year.We have adopted a dividend reinvestment plan that provides for reinvestment of distributions in shares of our common stock, unless a stockholder elects to receive cash. As a result, if we declare a cash distribution, shareholders who have not "opted out" of our dividend reinvestment plan will have their cash distributions automatically reinvested in additional shares of our common stock, rather than receiving cash. Please contact your broker or other financial intermediary for more information regarding the dividend reinvestment plan.Conference Call and WebcastWe will hold a conference call on Wednesday, February 27, 2019 at 9:00 a.m. Eastern Time to discuss our full year 2018 financial results.

The matters discussed in this press release, as well as in future oral and written statements by management of KCAP Financial, Inc., that are forward-looking statements are based on current management expectations that involve substantial risks and uncertainties which could cause actual results to differ materially from the results expressed in, or implied by, these forward-looking statements.Forward-looking statements relate to future events or our future financial performance.

Forward-looking statements are based upon current plans, estimates and expectations that are subject to risks, uncertainties and assumptions. Should one or more of these risks or uncertainties materialize, or should underlying assumptions prove to be incorrect, actual results may vary materially from those indicated or anticipated by such forward-looking statements.Important assumptions include our ability to originate new investments, and achieve certain margins and levels of profitability, the availability of additional capital, and the ability to maintain certain debt to asset ratios.

Further information about factors that could affect our financial and other results is included in our filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
