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

  • New Portfolio Activity: The Company disbursed, in aggregate, $42.3 million in a combination of debt and equity, to invest in three new portfolio companies, Alloy Die Casting Co., Behrens Manufacturing, and Meridian Rack & Pinion, Inc.

  • Repayments of Loans: The Company received full repayment of debt investments in Channel Technologies Group, LLC ("Channel") and Cavert II Holding Corp. ("Cavert") in the amounts of $16.2 million and $6.1 million, respectively. As a part of these repayments, Channel and Cavert also paid prepayment and success fees of $0.8 million and $0.2 million, respectively.

  • Exits of Two Distressed Investments: In October 2013, one of the Company's portfolio companies, Auto Safety House, LLC ("ASH"), was sold to its existing management team. As a result of the sale, the Company received minimal net cash proceeds, recognized a realized loss of $11.4 million and retained a $5.0 million accruing revolving credit facility in ASH. In November 2013, another of the Company's portfolio companies, Packerland Whey Products, Inc. ("Packerland"), was sold to other existing owners. As a result of the sale, the Company received $0.7 million in net cash proceeds and recognized a realized loss of $1.8 million. These sales, while at a realized loss, were accretive to the Company's net asset value in aggregate by $5.7 million and reduced the Company's non-accruals outstanding. 

  • Increased Recurring Distributions and Paid One-Time Bonus Distribution: The Company paid its monthly cash distributions for each of October, November and December 2013 to common stockholders of $0.06 per common share, representing a 20% increase from the common distributions from the previous quarter. The Company also paid a one-time bonus dividend of $0.05 per common share in November and paid the preferred stockholders a monthly amount of $0.1484375 per preferred share of the Company's 7.125% Series A Cumulative Term Preferred Stock ("Term Preferred Stock") for each of October, November and December 2013.

Third Quarter 2014 Results:  Net Investment Income for the quarters ended December 31 and September 30, 2013 was $4.4 million, or $0.17 per share, and $6.2 million, or $0.24 per share, respectively, a decrease of 29.3%.  The decrease in Net Investment Income for the quarter ended December 31, 2013, as compared to the prior quarter, was primarily due to the $3.3 million in dividend and fee income related to the sale of Venyu Solutions, Inc. ("Venyu") that was recognized in the previous quarter.  This was partially offset by fee income in the aggregate amount of $1.0 million that was received in connection with the full repayments of loans from Cavert and Channel in the quarter ended December 31, 2013. 

Net (Decrease) Increase in Net Assets Resulting from Operations for the quarters ended December 31 and September 30, 2013 was $(10.7) million, or $(0.40) per share, and $14.9 million, or $0.57 per share, respectively.  The quarter over quarter change is primarily due to the aforementioned realized losses on the sales of the ASH and Packerland in the quarter ended December 31, 2013 as well as the $24.8 million realized gain on the sale of Venyu in the previous quarter.  Additionally, unrealized (depreciation) appreciation, excluding reversal of previously-recorded appreciation (depreciation) upon realization, decreased to $(15.5) million in unrealized depreciation in the quarter ended December 31, 2013 as compared to $1.7 million in unrealized appreciation in the prior quarter. During the quarter ended December 31, 2013, the Company experienced unrealized depreciation in certain of its portfolio companies, primarily due to a decrease in certain comparable multiples used to estimate fair value of the Company's investments and a decrease in portfolio company performance.
