Oxford Lane Capital Corp. Sends Notice to Shareholders Regarding Stock Repurchase Program

GREENWICH, CT--(Marketwired - Dec 16, 2014) - Oxford Lane Capital Corp. ("Oxford Lane") (NASDAQ: OXLC) announced today that it has commenced the mailing of a notice to shareholders, in accordance with Section 23(c)(1) under the Investment Company Act of 1940, to inform its shareholders that its Board of Directors has authorized a stock repurchase program to acquire up to $35 million of Oxford Lane's outstanding shares of common stock.

Stock repurchases under this program are to be made through the open market, including through block purchases, at times and in such amounts as Oxford Lane's management deems appropriate and in accordance with regulatory requirements.

Unless extended by Oxford Lane's Board of Directors, Oxford Lane expects the repurchase program to be in place until the earlier of March 31, 2015 or until $35 million of Oxford Lane's outstanding shares of common stock have been repurchased.
