DALLAS, May 1, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Capital Southwest Corporation (CSWC) today reported total net assets at March 31, 2012 of $628,707,006 equivalent to $167.45 per share. Comparative annual data is summarized below:
|March 31, 2012||December 31, 2011||March 31, 2011|
|Net assets per share||$167.45||$146.95||$143.68|
Assuming reinvestment of all dividends and tax credits on retained long-term capital gains, the March 31, 2012 net asset value was 18.1% greater than the March 31, 2011 net asset value of $143.68 per share and 14.0% above the December 31, 2011 net asset value of $146.95 per share.
In March 2012, Form S-3 registration statements for Alamo Group, Inc. (NYSE:ALG), Encore Wire Corporation, and Heelys, Inc. were filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). As a result of these registrations becoming effective with the SEC, restrictions under Rule 144 of the Securities Act of 1933 were lifted and valuation discounts previously applied to these holdings were removed. Had the prior period discounts been applied to ALG, WIRE, and HLYS, the resulting net asset value would have been $597,793,096, or $159.22 per share. This would have represented increases of 12.3% and 8.3% over the March 31, 2011 and December 31, 2011 net asset values, respectively.
