PALO ALTO, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
Technology Growth Capital, Inc. (NYSE:HTGC)("Hercules" or the
"Company"), the leading specialty financing provider to innovative
venture growth stage companies backed by leading venture capital firms,
today announced it intends to redeem $40.0 million (face value) of the
$85.9 million in issued and outstanding aggregate principal amount of
the Company's 7.00% Senior Unsecured Notes due September 2019 (CUSIP No.
427096870) (the "Notes"), which were issued pursuant to the indenture
(the "Base Indenture") dated as of March 6, 2012, between the Company
and U.S. National Bank Association, as trustee, as supplemented by the
second supplemental indenture dated as of September 24, 2012 (together
with the Base Indenture, the "Indenture"). The partial redemption of the
Notes will result in interest expense savings if the Notes were
otherwise left outstanding through maturity, but will also accelerate
the amortization of certain underwriting fees and other debt issuance
costs resulting in an increase in related expenses in the period the
Notes are redeemed. Hercules currently intends to make additional
redemptions on the Notes throughout calendar year 2016, depending on its
anticipated liquidity position. The Company will provide notice for, and
complete all, redemptions in compliance with the terms of the Indenture.
