Last week Pennantpark Floating Rate Capital (PFLT) announced that it is going to sell 3 million shares of common stock at a public offering price of $14 per share. The closing of this transaction is set to be delivered on March 26. The company is planning on using the net proceeds to reduce outstanding debts, to fund investments in compliance to its investment objectives, or for general corporate purposes. Taking advantage of the common stock price, Director Samuel Katz added 30,000 shares to his stake costing him a total of $420,000. Katz now holds on to 59,500 shares in company stock. The last time Katz invested in the company was in August 2011, and since then he has seen the price per share increase 30.57%.



Samuel Katz has been with the Pennantpark family since 2007. Katz has served on the board for Pennantpark Investment Corp. since 2007 and for Pennantpark Floating Capital since 2010. Katz has also been the managing partner of TZP Group LLC since 2007. He was formerly the CEO of MacAndrews & Forbes Acquisition Holdings.
