SUBSEQUENT EVENTS

  • NAV per share estimated to be between $17.37 and $17.41 as of October 31, 2021.

  • As of October 31, 2021, the Company had approximately $7.4 million of cash and capacity on its revolving credit facility available for investment.

We have been successful at implementing the strategy for the Company that we laid out earlier in the year," said Thomas Majewski, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "We are pleased to declare a special common distribution to shareholders of $0.20 per share. In addition, after quarter end, we completed the offering of our 5.00% Series A Term Preferred Stock due 2026. We also grew the Company’s common equity base through an underwritten follow-on offering. We expect to deploy the proceeds of these offerings into additional CLO debt and equity investments as we see multiple opportunities to further increase NII on a sustainable basis."

THIRD QUARTER 2021 RESULTS

The Company’s NII less realized capital losses for the quarter ended September 30, 2021 was $0.31 per weighted average share. This compared to $0.28 of NII and realized capital gains per weighted average share for the quarter ended June 30, 2021 and $0.28 of NII and realized capital losses per weighted average share for the quarter ended September 30, 2020.

NAV as of September 30, 2021 was $108.8 million, or $17.69 per share, which is $0.31 higher than the Company’s NAV per share as of June 30, 2021, and $2.85 higher than the Company’s NAV per share as of September 30, 2020.

PORTFOLIO STATUS

As of September 30, 2021, on a look-through basis, and based on the most recent CLO trustee reports received by such date, the Company had indirect exposure to approximately 1,369 unique corporate obligors. The largest look-through obligor represented 0.9% of the Company’s CLO debt and equity portfolio. The top-ten largest look-through obligors together represented 6.2% of the Company’s CLO debt and equity portfolio.

As of September 30, 2021, the Company had $25.0 million in outstanding borrowings from the revolving credit facility, representing leverage of 18.7% of total assets (less current liabilities). Over the long term, management expects the Company to operate under normal market conditions generally with leverage between 25% and 35% of total assets (less current liabilities). Based on applicable market conditions at any given time, or should significant opportunities present themselves, the Company may incur leverage in excess of this amount, subject to applicable regulatory and contractual limits.

FOURTH QUARTER 2021 PORTFOLIO ACTIVITY THROUGH OCTOBER 31, 2021 AND OTHER UPDATES

On October 22, 2021, the Company closed an underwritten public offering of 1,220,000 shares of the Company’s newly issued 5.00% Series A Term Preferred Stock due 2026 (the "Series A Term Preferred Stock") at a public offering price of $25 per share, which resulted in net proceeds to the Company of approximately $29.3 million after payment of underwriting discounts and commissions and estimated offering expenses payable by the Company.

As of October 31, 2021, the Company had approximately $7.4 million of cash and capacity on its revolving credit facility available for investment.

As previously published on the Company’s website, management’s estimate of the Company’s range of NAV per share as of October 31, 2021 was $17.37 to $17.41. The decline was due to non-recurring costs related to the EICA offering.

On November 2, 2021, the Company closed an underwritten public offering of 600,000 shares of its common stock at a public offering price of $18.45 per share, which resulted in net proceeds to the Company of approximately $10.4 million after payment of underwriting discounts and commissions and estimated offering expenses payable by the Company.
