TICC Announces Full Repayment of Its Credit Facility

GREENWICH, CT--(Marketwire - December 30, 2008) - TICC Capital Corp. (the "Company") (NASDAQ: TICC) announced today that, following a period of concerted deleveraging of its balance sheet, it has now reduced to zero its outstanding borrowings under its credit facility with Royal Bank of Canada as agent and a lender and Branch Banking & Trust Company as an additional lender (the "Credit Facility"). The Company also undertook steps to unilaterally terminate its Credit Facility, effective December 30, 2008, in accordance with its terms as a result of the completion of the repayment of its outstanding borrowings thereunder. The Credit Facility had been scheduled to terminate on January 29, 2009. Jonathan Cohen, the Company's CEO, said "In the midst of the worst credit environment in many years, we are pleased to be in a position where we have no capital obligations to any bank or borrower. As we head into a new year, we believe that balance sheet strength (including the absence of borrowed money) will help to define competitive advantage. We look forward to evaluating opportunities to deploy our available capital in a market that we consider to be very attractive on a risk/reward basis."
