NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- LMP Capital and Income Fund Inc. (SCD) (the Fund) today announced that, in accordance with its tender offer for up to 996,307 of its issued and outstanding shares of common stock which expired on December 28, 2011, the Fund has accepted that number of shares today for payment at $13.07 per share. These shares represent approximately 5% of the Funds outstanding shares.
A total of 5,893,339 shares were properly tendered and not withdrawn by December 28, 2011, the final date for withdrawals.

Accordingly, on a pro rata basis, 16.91% of shares for each stockholder who properly tendered shares have been accepted for payment. The Fund will transmit payment to purchase the duly tendered and accepted shares on January 4, 2012.
The Fund is a non-diversified closed-end management investment company traded on the New York Stock Exchange under the symbol SCD.
