Triangle Capital Corporation Receives Five Awards from Institutional Investor Magazine

RALEIGH, N.C., Dec. 19, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Triangle Capital Corporation (NYSE:TCAP) (“Triangle” or the “Company”), a leading provider of capital to lower middle market companies, announced today that the Company has received five awards from Institutional Investor Magazine as part of the magazine’s 2018 All-America Executive Team awards.

In the category of Brokers, Asset Managers, and Exchanges, Steven C. Lilly, the Company’s Chief Financial Officer, received the number one ranking as Best CFO (sell side) and the number two ranking as Best CFO (overall).   Within the Small Cap Financial Institutions category, Mr. Lilly received the number one ranking as Best CFO.  In addition to the Best CFO awards, within the Small Cap Financial Institutions category, Triangle Capital Corporation received the number one ranking for the Best Analyst Day and the number three ranking for the Best Investor Relations Program.

Commenting on these awards, E. Ashton Poole, Chairman and CEO, stated, "It is a great honor for Triangle to be recognized by Institutional Investor Magazine.  The Brokers, Asset Managers & Exchanges category includes some of the world’s largest and most recognizable companies, which makes Steven’s achievement as a leading CFO even more noteworthy.  The Small Cap Financial Institutions sector contains 186 companies with market capitalizations less than $2 billion, and for Triangle to receive three recognitions in that category is equally impressive.  I am proud of the entire Triangle team for this well-deserved recognition."

These awards mark the third time that Mr. Lilly and Triangle have been honored by Institutional Investor Magazine, as Mr. Lilly was named one of America's Best CFOs in both 2014 and 2016.
