ITEM 5.07.
SUBMISSION OF MATTERS TO A VOTE OF SECURITY HOLDERS.

On October 31, 2017, MVC Capital, Inc. (the “Fund”) held its Annual Meeting of Stockholders.  During this meeting, our stockholders were asked to consider and vote upon three proposals: (1) to elect seven nominees to serve as members of the Board of Directors of the Fund to serve for a term of one year until the next annual meeting of stockholders;  (2) to ratify the selection of Grant Thornton LLP as the Fund’s independent registered public accounting firm for the fiscal year ending October 31, 2017; and (3) to act upon a Stockholder proposal (the “Stockholder Proposal”) to cease to make any new investments, and for the Company to return any capital in excess of the Company’s normal working capital requirements to shareholders in the most tax-efficient manner as long as the stock price discount to net asset value exceeds 10%.

 For each proposal, the final shareholder voting results were as follows:
 
Proposal 1: Election of seven directors.
