HOUSTON, Oct. 7, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Main Street Capital Corporation (NYSE: MAIN) ("Main Street") announced today that it recently completed a follow-on investment in an existing portfolio company totaling $16.4 million.  Main Street's follow-on investment in SambaSafety Holdings, L.L.C. ("SambaSafety" or the "Company") supported the Company's acquisition of a complementary business in the driver risk management software and technology-enabled services industry, an acquisition which significantly expands the Company's customer base and service offering.  The follow-on investment consists of an additional $16.0 million of first lien, senior secured term debt and a $0.4 million equity investment. 

Headquartered in Albuquerque, New Mexico, SambaSafety is an industry leading provider of driver risk management software and services to car and truck fleet owners, insurance carriers and agents, employment background screeners, and automotive retailers.  This acquisition adds significant scale to the Company's operations, and enhances SambaSafety's position as a leading national provider of driver risk management and motor vehicle record monitoring.  The Company previously acquired American Driving Records, Inc. ("ADR") in August 2012, an acquisition which secured SambaSafety's data access to motor vehicle records in all 50 states, while adding scale and balance to the Company's revenue mix.  Main Street made its initial investment in SambaSafety during the fourth quarter of 2011.
