4/3, 2:45 AM (Source: GlobeNewswire)

HOUSTON, April 02, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Kayne Anderson Midstream/Energy Fund, Inc. (the “Fund”) (NYSE: KMF) today provided a summary unaudited statement of assets and liabilities and announced its net asset value and asset coverage ratios under the Investment Company Act of 1940 (the “1940 Act”) as of March 31, 2020. 

As of March 31, 2020, the Fund’s net assets were $186 million and its net asset value per share was $3.93.  As of the same date, the Fund had $148 million of cash on its balance sheet, including cash it has received since month end for securities it has recently sold. It is the Fund’s intention to comply with all applicable 1940 Act leverage tests as well as the covenants on its debt agreements and of its preferred stock. The Fund plans to prudently use its cash balance to reduce leverage levels over the next month in a way that minimizes prepayment penalties and maximizes shareholder value.

As of March 31, 2020, the Fund’s asset coverage ratio under the 1940 Act with respect to senior securities representing indebtedness (the “’40 Act Debt Test”) was 266% and the Fund’s asset coverage ratio under the 1940 Act with respect to total leverage (the “’40 Act Leverage Test”) was 180%. The Fund is still in the process of determining what portion of its cash balance will be used to redeem debt and what portion will be used to redeem preferred stock. For illustrative purposes, assuming the Fund uses all of its cash to repay outstanding indebtedness, the pro forma coverage ratios are estimated to be 2271% for the ’40 Act Debt Test and 312% for the ’40 Act Leverage Test.
