LOS ANGELES, Jan. 21, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- TCP Capital Corp. (NASDAQ: TCPC, the "Company", "we", "us" or "our") today announced certain preliminary financial estimates for the quarter ended December 31, 2015.
Set forth below is a preliminary estimate of our net asset value per share as of December 31, 2015 and a preliminary estimate of our adjusted net investment income per share for the three months ended December 31, 2015. The following estimates are not a comprehensive statement of our financial condition or results for the period from October 1, 2015 through December 31, 2015. We advise you that our actual results for the three months ended December 31, 2015 may differ materially from these estimates (which are based solely on determinations for such period made prior to this press release) as a result of the completion of our financial closing procedures, final adjustments and other developments, including changes in the businesses to whom we have made loans, which may arise between now and the time that our financial results for the three months ended December 31, 2015 are finalized. This information is inherently uncertain.
As of the date of this press release, we currently expect that our adjusted net investment income per share after incentive compensation was between $0.43 and $0.45 before excise taxes for the three months ended December 31, 2015, or between $0.41 and $0.43 after excise taxes.
As of the date of this press release, we estimate that our net asset value per share as of December 31, 2015 was between $14.75 and $14.78. The decline when compared to September 30, 2015 was primarily a result of mark-to-market changes from increased spreads.
During the period beginning October 1, 2015 and ending January 20, 2016, we repurchased our stock under our stock repurchase plan (the "Company Repurchase Plan") on 51 days when our shares traded below NAV. The Company Repurchase Plan provides for the acquisition of up to $50 million in the aggregate of our common stock at prices at certain thresholds below our net asset value per share, in accordance with the guidelines specified in Rule 10b-18 and Rule 10b5-1 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.
The timing, amount and price of any stock repurchased depends on the terms and conditions of the Company Repurchase Plan, the market price of our common stock and trading volumes, and no assurance can be given that any particular amount of common stock will be repurchased.
The preliminary financial estimates provided herein have been prepared by, and are the responsibility of, management. Deloitte & Touche LLP, our independent registered public accounting firm, has not audited, reviewed, compiled, or performed any procedures with respect to the accompanying preliminary financial data. Accordingly, Deloitte & Touche LLP has not expressed an opinion or any form of assurance with respect thereto.
