Business Development Corporation of America Announces Second Quarter 2012 Results from Operations

NEW YORK, Aug. 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Business Development Corporation of America ("BDCA" or the "Company") announced results of operations for the second quarter ended June 30, 2012.

The Company commenced operations on August 25, 2011, subsequent to raising sufficient funds to meet escrow break requirements. For the six months ended June 30, 2012, BDCA acquired $80.4 million of investments, in 37 individual investments. In addition, BDCA received proceeds of $23.5 million during this period from selling certain investments and repayments. The Company realized gains of $0.6 million from exiting such investments. Net investment income (determined in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles) of $1.4 million was generated during the six months ended June 30, 2012, excluding realized and unrealized gains and losses. During the same period, the Company paid distributions of $0.7 million.

"Once again, we are pleased to report another strong quarter of operations for BDCA," stated Peter M. Budko, president and chief operating officer of the Company. Mr. Budko noted, "We continue to fully cover our regular monthly dividend from our core net investment income rather than rely upon investment gains and new equity raised to cover shortfalls. Our portfolio continues to be of high quality, with over 91 percent of our assets invested in senior secured loans. With continued unease in Europe and other economic concerns, we believe that our strategy of originating and participating in well-structured, senior secured loans to middle market U.S. companies provides our investors with a conservative investment alternative."
