LMP Capital and Income Fund Inc. Announces Final Results of Tender Offer

LMP Capital and Income Fund Inc. (NYSE: SCD) (the “Fund”) today announced that, in accordance with its tender offer for up to 996,307 of its issued and outstanding shares of common stock which expired on December 28, 2011, the Fund has accepted that number of shares today for payment at $13.07 per share. These shares represent approximately 5% of the Fund’s outstanding shares.

A total of 5,893,339 shares were properly tendered and not withdrawn by December 28, 2011, the final date for withdrawals. Because the number of shares tendered exceeds 996,307 shares, the tender offer has been oversubscribed. Therefore, in accordance with the terms and conditions specified in the tender offer, the Fund will purchase shares from all tendering stockholders on a pro rata basis, disregarding fractions. Accordingly, on a pro rata basis, 16.91% of shares for each stockholder who properly tendered shares have been accepted for payment. The Fund will transmit payment to purchase the duly tendered and accepted shares on January 4, 2012.

The Fund is a non-diversified closed-end management investment company traded on the New York Stock Exchange under the symbol “SCD”. It is advised by Legg Mason Partners Fund Advisor, LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Legg Mason, Inc. (“Legg Mason”) and is sub-advised by ClearBridge Advisors, LLC and Western Asset Management Company, affiliates of the adviser.
