PALO ALTO, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
Technology Growth Capital, Inc. (NYSE:HTGC), the leading specialty
finance company focused on providing senior secured loans to venture
capital-backed companies in technology-related markets, including

technology industries, at all stages of development, announced today
that holders of an additional $23.1 million of its 6.00% Convertible
Senior Notes due 2016 have exercised their conversion rights.
The trustee for the 6.00% Convertible Senior Notes due 2016 has informed
Hercules that the additional $23.1 million brings the total principal
amount of the notes that holders have exercised their conversion rights
on to approximately $57.2 million. Conversion will be settled pursuant
to the terms of the indenture. Hercules has elected to settle the
outstanding principal amount of the tendered notes in cash, and Hercules
will issue shares of its common stock for the remainder of the
settlement amount. As a result of these additional conversions in the
fourth quarter, Hercules expects to incur a negative impact to earnings.
Upon meeting the stock trading price conversion requirement during the
three months ended September 30, 2014, the Convertible Senior Notes
continue to be convertible through December 31, 2014.
Remaining holders of outstanding Convertible Senior Notes interested in
converting should follow the conversion procedures set forth in the
indenture, which include, as applicable, providing notices and following
the procedures required by the depository and the trustee.
