Item 8.01 Other Events

BlackRock Capital Investment Corporation (NASDAQ: BKCC) (“BKCC”) announced today that on January 16, 2018, the Securities and Exchange Commission issued an order permitting BKCC and certain of its affiliates, (collectively, the “Companies”) to complete negotiated co-investment transactions in portfolio companies, subject to certain conditions (the “Order”). Subject to satisfaction of certain conditions to the Order, the Companies are now permitted, together with any future business development companies, registered closed-end funds and certain private funds, each of whose investment adviser is BKCC's investment adviser or an investment adviser controlled by BKCC's investment adviser, to co-invest in negotiated investment opportunities where doing so would otherwise be prohibited under the Investment Company Act of 1940 (the "1940 Act"), providing BKCC’s shareholders with access to a broader array of investment opportunities.
In connection with the Order, BKCC also announced today that on January 16, 2018, BlackRock Advisors, LLC, BKCC's investment adviser, assigned the Investment Management Agreement, dated March 6, 2015 (the "Agreement"), to a wholly-owned subsidiary, BlackRock Capital Investment Advisors, LLC ("BCIA") pursuant to Rule 2a-6 of the 1940 Act.  Accordingly, BCIA is now BKCC's investment adviser.  BKCC and BCIA amended and restated the Agreement in its entirety to acknowledge such assignment and to delete certain portions of the Agreement that are no longer operative in accordance with their terms.  There will be no change to the fees, nor to the personnel overseeing the provision of investment management services to BKCC.
