HOUSTON, Sep 14, 2009 (GlobeNewswire via COMTEX News Network) -- NGP Capital Resources Company (Nasdaq:NGPC) (the "Company") today announced that its Board of Directors has declared a quarterly dividend to stockholders in the amount of $0.15 per common share. The expected dividend payment date is October 9, 2009 to shareholders of record on September 30, 2009. It is expected that the dividend will be paid out of ordinary income for tax purposes. The tax characteristics of all dividends will be reported to each shareholder on Form 1099 after the end of the year.
In announcing the dividend, John Homier, NGPC's President and CEO said: "We are pleased that this dividend for the third quarter of 2009 represents a 25 percent increase from our second quarter dividend. Nevertheless, we continue to take a cautious view of the current markets. While we are encouraged by early signs of general economic recovery, we continue to see the potential for weak energy demand along with soft and volatile commodity prices in the near to medium term. This, along with other aftershocks of the recent market dislocation, will likely drive a slow market for energy-related investment transactions. Longer term, we see the natural decline in the production of energy commodities in concert with a general economic recovery reenergizing demand for capital for energy related investments. We feel that NGPC is well positioned to participate in that recovery."
