Highlights for the Quarter:  During the third quarter ended June 30, 2013, the following significant events occurred:

  • Portfolio Activity:
    • Invested $8.8 million in Funko, LLC, a consumer products company, through a combination of senior term debt and equity.  This was the Company's first co-investment with one of the Company's affiliated funds, Gladstone Investment Corporation, pursuant to an exemptive order granted by the SEC. 
    • Exited three syndicate investments at par for an aggregate of $10.5 million.  Additionally, the Company sold one non-accrual investment for net proceeds of approximately $0.6 million, which resulted in a realized loss of $2.9 million
  • Revolving Line of Credit Extension:  Amended the Company's line of credit to extend the maturity date for one year until January 2016.  The Company incurred fees of $0.7 million in connection with this amendment.  All other terms remained generally unchanged at the time of this amendment.
  • Recurring Distributions:  Paid monthly cash distributions for each of April, May and June 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").

Third Quarter 2013 Results:  Net Investment Income for the quarters ended June 30 and March 31, 2013, were $4.4 million, or $0.21 per share, respectively.  Investment income increased by 1.5% in the three months ended June 30, 2013, as compared to the prior quarter, primarily due to prepayment fees received on the early payoffs of three syndicated investments at par during the quarter totaling $0.2 million.  No prepayment fees were earned in the quarter ended March 31, 2013.  Operating expenses increased by 3.2% in the three months ended June 30, 2013, as compared to the prior quarter, primarily due to an increase in professional and other expenses related to receipt of reimbursable deal expenses in the prior quarter. 

Net Decrease in Net Assets Resulting from Operations for the quarters ended June 30 and March 31, 2013 was $(2.1) million, or $(0.10) per share, and $(2.7) million, or $(0.13) per share, respectively.  The quarter over quarter change is primarily due to a larger amount of net unrealized depreciation in the prior quarter as compared to the current quarter.

Subsequent Events:  Subsequent to June 30, 2013, the following significant events occurred:

  • Portfolio Activity: 
    • Invested $8.9 million in Ashland Acquisition, LLC, the sole owner of a publishing company, through a combination of senior term debt and equity. 
  • Distributions Declared:  Declared the following monthly cash distributions to stockholders:
