For Shareholders on December 31, 2014

We met the applicable requirements of the Internal Revenue Code for federal income tax treatment as a regulated investment company. Shareholders should consider the following when preparing 2014 tax returns:

Cash Dividends

IRS Form 1099 reflects the $0.10 per share semi-annual dividends paid on May 30, 2014 and November 28, 2014, which are both qualified dividends.

Retained Long-Term Capital Gains

During the year ending December 31, 2014, we realized taxable long-term capital gains of $155,342,875 ($10.0894 per share) and will pay federal income taxes of 35%, equivalent to $54,370,006 ($3.5313 per share). We elected to retain these gains and, as a regulated investment company, designated them to shareholders of record on December 31, 2014. The tax effect is the same as if the capital gains had been distributed to our shareholders, who then elected to reinvest 65% of the amount received. The 35% capital gains tax paid by Capital Southwest is considered to have been paid on behalf of the shareholders.

For Shareholders from 1968 through 2014

In certain years from 1968 through 2014, we made elections to retain taxable net long-term capital gains. The table shows the record dates for all years for which we made such elections and the per share amounts of the retained long-term capital gains, the federal income taxes paid and the amounts by which shareholders on each record date are entitled to increase the tax basis of each share (adjusted for stock splits in 1976, 1981, 1987 and 2014).
