CHICAGO, April 29, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Monroe Capital Corporation
(Nasdaq:MRCC) ("Monroe") today announced that in order to strengthen and
diversify the Company's board of directors in anticipation of future growth it

directors.

Joining the Monroe board, effective immediately, are Thomas J. Allison,

non-interested director. The board has appointed Mr. Allison to the Company's
audit committee as its chairperson and has appointed Mr. Nathan to the
Company's nominating and corporate governance committee.

executives to the Monroe board. Tom and Jorde bring a great deal of financial
leadership and corporate finance experience to our board and their input will
be invaluable as we grow the Company over time. We thank Jeff Steele for his
work as our former audit committee chairperson and look forward to his
continued participation on our board."

Mr. Allison served as Executive Vice President and Senior Managing Director of
Mesirow Financial Consulting, LLC, a full-service financial and operational
advisory consulting firm headquartered in Chicago, from 2006 until 2012. At

major reorganizations and insolvencies. He also served as CEO, CFO or CRO for
several clients. Prior to Mesirow, Mr. Allison served in various capacities at
