    Prospect Capital (PSEC +4.2%) ends a two-month proxy fight by terminating its offer to buy Allied Capital (ALD +1.8%), blaming Allied's unwillingness to talk after arranging to sell itself to Ares Capital (ARCC +1.2%) for an estimated $648M. Allied approved a special $0.20 dividend conditional on approving the Ares sale.

    Allied Capital (ALD) rejected an offer from Prospect Capital (PSEC), calling it inferior to the one Allied already agreed upon with Ares Capital (ARCC). Prospect's all-stock offer is valued at around $900M, but the merged companies might be unable to maintain dividends or access capital markets on favorable terms.
