Item 8.01 Other Events.

The Company confirmed that effective September 29, 2017, pursuant to Section 2.5(c) of the Gladstone Capital Corporation Articles Supplementary Establishing and Fixing the Rights and Preferences of Term Preferred Shares, as well as the Articles Supplementary Establishing and Fixing the Rights and Preferences of Term Preferred Shares, 6.75% Series 2021 Term Preferred Stock and Exhibit A thereto, to the Company’s Articles of Amendment and Restatement, it voluntarily redeemed all 2,440,000 outstanding shares of its 6.75% Series 2021 Term Preferred Stock, at the liquidation preference of $25.00 per share. All holders of record of the Series 2021 Term Preferred Stock on September 20, 2017, the record date for the monthly dividend for September declared by the Board of Directors of the Company, also received a distribution in the amount of the monthly distribution, $0.140625, that was paid on September 29, 2017.

The Company previously announced its intention to redeem the Series 2021 Term Preferred Stock contingent upon the Company’s successful completion of a public offering of shares of its 6.00% Series 2024 Term Preferred Stock, par value $0.001 per share (the “Series 2024 Term Preferred Stock”) at a public offering price of $25.00 per share, which was completed on September 27, 2017.
