"We are pleased with the growth in NAV this quarter to $20.12 per share, a 17% annualized increase," said Malon Wilkus, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer.  "More importantly, we worked diligently and made good progress in evaluating, planning and preparing for the possible separation of our investments from our management business.  However, as a business development company with a diverse set of assets, separating our investments from our management business would be quite complex. Nonetheless, based on our progress, we hope to be in a position to present our board of directors a specific proposal in the fourth quarter regarding separating our investments from our management business."

"Should our board decide to separate our investments from our asset management business, there are a number of issues that would need to be addressed," said Sam Flax, Executive Vice President and General Counsel.  "These issues include structuring our assets so that the resulting entities are compliant with the Investment Company Act, including co-investment and asset composition matters, preserving tax assets and structuring entities for tax compliance, determining financial reporting requirements and preparing necessary securities laws filings, addressing the impact of a restructuring on our portfolio companies and developing the governance, compliance and compensation structures of the resulting entities."

PORTFOLIO VALUATION  For the quarter ended June 30, 2014, net unrealized appreciation, before income taxes, totaled $170 million.  The primary components of the net unrealized appreciation were:

  • $101 million unrealized appreciation in American Capital's investment in American Capital Asset Management, LLC ("ACAM"), primarily due to an increase in actual and forecasted growth and multiple expansion;
  • $60 million net unrealized appreciation in American Capital's investment in European Capital, driven by a 7% increase in European Capital's NAV prior to the $34 million dividend distribution to American Capital.
    • The Company's equity investment in European Capital was valued at $827 million as of June 30, 2014, or 87% of NAV, compared to $801 million as of March 31, 2014, or 87% of NAV; and
  • $10 million of reversal of prior period unrealized depreciation associated with net realized losses on portfolio investments.

PORTFOLIO REALIZATIONS AND PERFORMANCE  In the second quarter of 2014, $408 million of cash proceeds were received from realizations of portfolio investments, including a dividend distribution of $34 million from European Capital.  American Capital made $813 million in new committed investments during the quarter, including $579 million in broadly syndicated senior floating rate loans ("Senior Floating Rate Loans").  The Company's investments in Senior Floating Rate Loans consist primarily of first lien loans to large market, U.S. based companies. 

The weighted average effective interest rate on American Capital's debt investments as of June 30, 2014 was 7.8%, 130 basis points lower than the March 31, 2014 rate of 9.1%. The primary driver of the decline in the weighted average effective interest rate was related to new investments in Senior Floating Rate Loans during the quarter.

As of June 30, 2014, loans with a fair value of $171 million were on non-accrual, representing 7.5% of total loans at fair value, compared to $165 million fair value of non-accrual loans, or 9.2% of total loans at fair value as of March 31, 2014.  The $6 million increase in the fair value of loans on non-accrual was generally driven by loans placed on non-accrual status due to weaker portfolio company performance.  Total loans on non-accrual were valued at 57.2% of cost at the end of the quarter, a 4.8% increase from the prior quarter.  This is an estimate of the amount the Company expects to recover on non-accruing loans.  The estimated loss on total loans at cost, defined as net accumulated depreciation on non-accrual loans plus realized losses on loans during the period, was $142 million, or 6.1%.  Net operating income before income taxes of $0.15 per diluted share during the quarter was reduced by $0.07 per diluted share due to the net impact of debt and equity securities being added and removed from non-accrual status.

"We made progress during the quarter repositioning our balance sheet into non-control assets that have attractive risk adjusted cash yields and obtaining a credit facility to appropriately lever these assets," said John Erickson, Chief Financial Officer and President, Structured Finance.  "As we exit investments, we have been reinvesting proceeds in attractive investments, including in Senior Floating Rate Loans that in particular could facilitate separating our investments from our management business."

(3)

IRR calculations are based on a sequence of cash proceeds invested, cash realizations or non-cash consideration received, and the terminal value of an investment over time.  For exited investments, the terminal value is the total cash realization received upon exit.  This includes fully exited investments of existing portfolio companies.  Additionally, IRR calculations exclude securities traded but not yet settled at period end.

Portfolio company reported EBITDA is for the most recently available twelve months, or when appropriate, the forecasted twelve months or current annualized run-rate.

(9)

Debt, which represents the debt and other liabilities senior to ACAS and the total of ACAS's debt in each portfolio company's debt capitalization, divided by Adjusted EBITDA. For portfolio companies with a nominal Adjusted EBITDA amount, the portfolio company's maximum debt leverage is limited to 15 times Adjusted EBITDA.
