On August 10, 2020, MVC Capital announced that it had signed an agreement to be acquired by Barings BDC for approximately $177.5 million. Pursuant to the merger agreement, MVC Capital’s stockholders will have the choice to receive 0.94024 shares of Barings BDC common stock or $9.62 in cash for each share of MVC Capital common stock owned. In addition, Barings LLC will pay MVC Capital stockholders $0.39492 in cash per share at the closing of the merger. The deal is scheduled to close in the fourth quarter of 2020.
