HOUSTON, Nov. 13, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Equus Total Return, Inc. (NYSE: EQS) (the “Fund” or “Equus”) reports net assets as of September 30, 2019, of $49.0 million, an increase of approximately $1.1 million since June 30, 2019.  Net asset value per share increased to $3.63 as of September 30, 2019 from $3.55 as of June 30, 2019.  Comparative data is summarized below (in thousands, except per share amounts): 
The overall increase in net asset value during the third quarter of 2019 was principally due to an increase in the value of the Fund’s shareholding in PalletOne, Inc.
