Highlights for the Quarter:  During the second quarter ended March 31, 2013, the following significant events occurred:

  • Portfolio Activity: Invested an aggregate of $6.0 million in two new portfolio companies and an aggregate of $3.0 million in existing portfolio companies while receiving approximately $4.4 million in aggregate scheduled and unscheduled principal repayments from existing portfolio companies, including two early payoffs at par. 
  • Recurring Distributions:  Paid monthly cash distributions for each of January, February and March 2013 to common stockholders of $0.07 per common share and to preferred stockholders of $0.1484375 per preferred share for the Company's 7.125% Series 2016 Term Preferred Stock (the "Term Preferred Stock").

Second Quarter 2013 Results:  Net Investment Income for the quarter ended March 31, 2013, was $4.4 million, or $0.21 per share, as compared to the prior quarter ended December 31, 2012 of $4.9 million, or $0.23 per share.  This 9.2% decrease in Net Investment Income was due primarily to a decrease in investment income of $1.4 million, offset by a decrease in total operating expenses of $1.0 million.  Investment income decreased in the three months ended March 31, 2013, as compared to the prior quarter, primarily due to a success fee of $1.1 million received in December 2012 related to an early payoff at par. There were no success fees earned in the quarter ended March 31, 2013.  Operating expenses decreased in the three months ended March 31, 2013, as compared to the prior quarter, primarily due to an increase in the incentive fee credit, to ensure net investment income covers cash distributions, and also to a decrease in professional and other expenses related to receipt of reimbursable deal expenses in the current period.

Net (Decrease) Increase in Net Assets Resulting from Operations for the quarters ended March 31, 2013 and December 31, 2012 was $(2.7) million, or $(0.13) per share, and $8.4 million, or $0.40 per share, respectively.  The quarter over quarter change is primarily due to a larger amount of net unrealized depreciation in the current quarter as compared to the prior quarter.

Subsequent Events:  Subsequent to March 31, 2013, the following events occurred:

  • Portfolio Activity:  Exited one of the Company's non-accrual investments for net proceeds of $0.5 million, which resulted in a realized loss of $2.9 million recorded in the quarter ending June 30, 2013.
  • Revolving Line of Credit Extension:  Amended the Company's revolving line of credit to extend the maturity date to January 19, 2016.  The Company incurred fees of $0.7 million in connection with this amendment.  All other terms of the line of the credit remained generally unchanged.
  • Distributions Declared:  Declared the following monthly cash distributions to stockholders:
