NEW YORK (Business Wire) -- Juan E. Monteverde, a partner at Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP, a leading national securities firm headquartered in New York City, is investigating the Board of Directors of American Capital Agency Corp. (“American Capital” or the “Company”) (NasdaqGS: AGNC) for potential breaches of fiduciary duties in connection with their conduct in seeking shareholders' approval for the amendment of the Company's certificate of incorporation.

Specifically, in the additional proxy soliciting materials filed by the Company with the Securities and Exchange Commission on May 31, 2013, the Board of Directors recommends that American Capital's shareholders vote to approve an amendment to the Company's certificate of incorporation to increase the number of authorized shares of preferred stock from 10,000,000 to 20,000,000 shares.
