    • Reduced scheduled amortization for 2014 and 2015 from $150 million to $4.5 million annually
  • Credit rating increased to BB- from B+ by S&P

"In the third quarter, our NAV per share grew by $0.26 and is 12% above its level a year ago, and we materially improved our credit facilities," said Malon Wilkus, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer.  "After the quarter closed, we recapitalized our operating company CML, while combining it with AAIPharma, growing the combined entity into one of our largest operating companies.  American Capital provided all of the funding for the transaction, but we do not plan on syndicating the senior debt, as we have in past One Stop Buyouts®.  This will allow us to earn interest income on the senior loan, and our loan will not have the usual prohibition against the payment of cash dividends to shareholders, allowing CML and AAIPharma to pay cash dividends to American Capital and their other shareholders.  We generally intend to use this approach going forward on companies where we own at least 80% of the common equity.  We plan to report interest and dividend income from our 80% or greater American Capital owned operating companies, as we have with our operating company American Capital Asset Management.  We believe this approach provides our shareholders more transparency into the performance of our operating companies."

PORTFOLIO VALUATION
For the quarter ended September 30, 2013, net unrealized appreciation, before income taxes, totaled $48 million.  The primary components of the net unrealized appreciation were:

  • $99 million net unrealized appreciation in American Capital's investment in European Capital, driven by foreign currency appreciation of $31 million as a result of a strengthening of the Euro, a 3% increase in European Capital's NAV and a slight reduction in the discount to NAV;
    • The Company's equity investment in European Capital was valued at $881 million as of September 30, 2013, or 80% of NAV, compared to $802 million as of June 30, 2013, or 78% of NAV.
  • $83 million of reversal of prior depreciation associated with net realized losses on portfolio investments; partially offset by
  • $119 million unrealized depreciation in American Capital's investment in American Capital Asset Management, LLC ("ACAM"), substantially due to a reduction in projected management fees from the two mortgage REITs that it manages;
  • $12 million net unrealized depreciation from American Capital's private finance portfolio; and
  • $7 million net unrealized depreciation from American Capital's structured products investments.

PORTFOLIO LIQUIDITY, NEW COMMITTED INVESTMENTS AND LOAN PERFORMANCE
In the third quarter of 2013, $218 million of cash proceeds were received from realizations of portfolio investments, including $37 million from European Capital. In addition, European Capital paid down $79 million of its unsecured revolving credit facility provided by the Company resulting in a total of $116 million of cash proceeds received from European Capital during the third quarter.  The aggregate amount of funds received from exits during the third quarter was 8.0% higher than the prior quarter's fair value of these investments.  American Capital made $62 million in new committed investments during the third quarter.  The weighted average effective interest rate on American Capital's debt investments as of September 30, 2013 was 10.8%, 40 basis points higher than the June 30, 2013 rate of 10.4%.  Non-accruing loans at fair value decreased $76 million from $245 million at the end of the second quarter to $169 million at September 30, 2013.  This decrease was driven principally by investments in two portfolio companies being removed from non-accrual status due to improved performance.  Total loans on non-accrual were valued at 56.5% of cost at the end of the third quarter, a 13.7% decrease 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 $130 million, or 8.2%. Net operating income before income taxes of $0.16 per diluted share was reduced by $0.10 per diluted share due to the net impact of debt and equity securities being added and removed from non-accrual status during the quarter. 

"Though we reviewed and bid on a considerable number of sponsor finance and buyout opportunities, originations were low this quarter," said Gordon O'Brien, President Specialty Finance and Operations.  "However, we anticipate considerable originations in the fourth quarter, including the already completed financing of the combination of CML with AAIPharma, as well as investments to incubate assets for funds to be managed by our asset management business and an increase in sponsor finance activity."

DEBT ISSUANCE AND REFINANCING
In September 2013, the Company issued $350 million in aggregate principal amount of senior unsecured five-year notes ("Private Notes"). The Private Notes were sold in a private offering to qualified institutional buyers under Rule 144A and outside of the United States pursuant to Regulation S of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended. The Private Notes have a fixed interest rate of 6.50% and mature in September 2018.

On August 23, 2013, the Company entered into an amendment ("the Amendment") to the existing term loan facility under its Senior Secured Term Loan Credit Agreement ("Secured Term Loan Facility"), dated as of August 22, 2012.  The Amendment reduced the interest rate on the Secured Term Loan Facility, which had an outstanding balance of $450 million as of the closing date, from LIBOR plus 4.25%, with a LIBOR floor of 1.25%, to LIBOR plus 3.00%, with a LIBOR floor of 1.00%. The Amendment also reduced the Secured Term Loan Facility's scheduled amortization for 2014 and 2015 from $150 million per year to $4.5 million per year and eliminated the mandatory prepayment when the borrowing base coverage exceeds 150%.  Our blended cost of debt at quarter end is now at 5.1%.

"We were extremely active in the quarter on the right side of our balance sheet," said John Erickson, Chief Financial Officer.  "We amended our secured term loan facility to significantly lower our borrowing costs and provide increased flexibility.  Our blended cost of debt at quarter end is now at 5.1%.  Furthermore, we issued $350 million of unsecured senior notes and S&P increased our debt rating to BB- from B+.  We are managing our balance sheet with a goal of becoming an investment grade credit.  Lastly, we repurchased $176 million of our stock, generating $0.29 of accretion to September 30, 2013 NAV per share, and recently extended our Stock Repurchase and Dividend Program through 2014." 

"Within American Capital Asset Management, our Leveraged Finance Group closed on its third managed CLO in the past year, bringing their earning assets under management to $1.5 billion," continued Mr. Erickson.  "However, reduction in projected management fees from the two mortgage REITs that it manages caused a net $119 million decline in the valuation of ACAM."

STOCK REPURCHASE AND DIVIDEND PROGRAM
American Capital's Board of Directors has adopted a program that may provide for repurchases of shares or dividend payments.  The program is currently in place through December 31, 2014.  Under the program, American Capital will consider quarterly setting an amount to be utilized for stock repurchases or dividends.  Generally, the amount may be utilized for repurchases if the price of American Capital's common stock represents a discount to the NAV of its shares, and the amount may be utilized for the payment of cash dividends if the price of American Capital's common stock represents a premium to the NAV of its shares.

The repurchase and dividend program may be suspended, terminated or modified at any time for any reason.  The program does not obligate American Capital to acquire any specific number of shares, and all repurchases will be made in accordance with SEC Rule 10b-18, which sets certain restrictions on the method, timing, price and volume of stock repurchases.  During the third quarter of 2013, American Capital made open market purchases of 13.4 million shares, or $176 million, of American Capital common stock at an average price of $13.11 per share.  Since the inception of the program in August 2011, American Capital has made open market purchases of 83.8 million shares, or $924 million, of American Capital common stock at an average price of $11.02 per share. This represents 24% of shares outstanding immediately prior to the launch of the program.
