RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

Set forth below are the results of operations during the three months and years ended September 30, 2022 and 2021.

Investment Income

Investment income for the three months ended September 30, 2022 and 2021 was $28.9 million and $23.1 million, respectively, and was attributable to $22.2 million and $13.1 million from first lien secured debt, $3.3 million and $4.4 million from second lien secured debt and $3.4 million and $5.6 million from subordinated debt and preferred and common equity, respectively.

Investment income for the years ended September 30, 2022 and 2021 was $105.0 million and $81.6 million, respectively, and was attributable to $74.4 million and $47.0 million from first lien secured debt, $17.0 million and $20.2 million from second lien secured debt and $13.6 million and $14.4 million from subordinated debt and preferred and common equity, respectively. The increase in investment income compared to the same periods in the prior year was primarily due to an increase in LIBOR and SOFR base rates and an increase in the size of our interest bearing portfolio.

Expenses

Expenses for the three months ended September 30, 2022 and 2021 totaled $19.7 million and $11.9 million, respectively. Base management fee totaled $4.9 million and $4.6 million, incentive fee totaled zero and $0.6 million, debt related interest and other financing costs totaled $13.7 million (including one-time costs of $5.1 million associated with the Credit Facility amendment) and $5.7 million, general and administrative expenses totaled $1.0 million and $0.9 million and provision for taxes totaled $0.2 million and $0.2 million, respectively, for the same periods.

Expenses for the years ended September 30, 2022 and 2021 totaled $61.0 million and $45.1 million, respectively. Base management fee totaled $19.8 million and $17.3 million, incentive fee totaled $2.7 million and $0.6 million, debt related interest and other financing expenses totaled $33.8 (including one-time costs of $5.1 million associated with the Credit Facility amendment) and $22.5 million, general and administrative expenses totaled $3.9 million and $4.1 million and provision for taxes totaled $0.8 million and $0.6 million, respectively, for the same periods The increase in net expenses over the prior year was primarily due to an increase in debt related interest and other financing expenses and an increase in base management and incentive fees.

Net Investment Income

Net investment income totaled $9.2 million, or $0.14 per share, and $11.3 million, or $0.17 per share, for the three months ended September 30, 2022 and 2021, respectively.

Net investment income totaled $43.9 million, or $0.66 per share, and $36.5 million, or $0.54 per share, for the years ended September 30, 2022 and 2021, respectively. The increase in net investment income per share compared to the prior year was primarily due to an increase in investment income partially offset by an increase in expenses.

Net Realized Gains or Losses

Net realized gains (losses) on sales and repayments of investments totaled ($38.7) million and $5.6 million, respectively, for the three months ended September 30, 2022 and 2021.

Net realized gain (loss) on sales and repayments of investments totaled $34.8 million and $30.0 million, respectively for the years ended September 30, 2022 and 2021. The change in realized gains/losses was primarily due to changes in market conditions of our investments and the values at which they were realized, primarily due to including the realized appreciation of PT Network Intermediate Holdings, LLC in the second quarter of 2022, and the fluctuations in the market and in the economy.

Unrealized Appreciation or Depreciation on Investments and Credit Facilities

For the three months ended September 30, 2022 and 2021, we reported a net change in unrealized appreciation (depreciation) on investments of ($11.0) million and $7.6 million, respectively. For the years ended September 30, 2022 and 2021, we reported net change in unrealized appreciation (depreciation) on investments of ($110.0) million and $117.9 million, respectively. As of September 30, 2022 and 2021, our net unrealized appreciation (depreciation) on investments totaled ($75.7) million and $34.2 million, respectively. The net change in unrealized appreciation/depreciation on our investments for the year ended September 30, 2022 compared to the prior year was primarily due to changes in the capital market conditions as well as the financial performance of certain portfolio companies.

For the three months ended September 30, 2022 and 2021, our Credit Facilities had a net change in unrealized (depreciation) appreciation of $1.7 million and ($0.7) million, respectively. For the years ended September 30, 2022 and 2021, our Credit Facilities had a net change in unrealized appreciation (depreciation) of ($7.5) million and $17.8 million, respectively. As of September 30, 2022 and 2021, our net unrealized depreciation on our Credit Facilities totaled $9.2 million and $1.7 million, respectively. The net change in unrealized depreciation for the year ended September 30, 2022 compared to the prior year was primarily due to changes in the capital markets.

Net Change in Net Assets Resulting from Operations

Net change in net assets resulting from operations totaled ($30.2) million, or ($0.45) per share, and $25.1 million, or $0.37 per share, for the three months ended September 30, 2022 and 2021, respectively.

Net change in net assets resulting from operations totaled ($24.7) million, or ($0.37) per share, and $166.6 million, or $2.49 per share, for the years ended September 30, 2022 and 2021, respectively. The decrease in net assets from operations for the year ended September 30, 2022 compared to the prior year was primarily due to depreciation of the portfolio primarily driven by changes in market conditions.

LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES

Our liquidity and capital resources are derived primarily from proceeds of securities offerings, debt capital and cash flows from operations, including investment sales and repayments, and income earned. Our primary use of funds from operations includes investments in portfolio companies and payments of interest expense, fees and other operating expenses we incur. We have used, and expect to continue to use, our debt capital, proceeds from the rotation of our portfolio and proceeds from public and private offerings of securities to finance our investment objectives.

The annualized weighted average cost of debt for the years ended September 30, 2022 and 2021, inclusive of the fee on the undrawn commitment and amendment costs on the Credit Facility, amortized upfront fees on SBA debentures and debt retirement and issuance costs, was 4.8% and 3.5%, respectively. As of September 30, 2022 and 2021, we had $114.1 million and $118.5 million of unused borrowing capacity under the Credit Facility, respectively, subject to leverage and borrowing base restrictions.

As of September 30, 2022 and 2021, we had $385.9 million and $316.5 million, respectively, in outstanding borrowings under the Credit Facility. The Credit Facility had a weighted average interest rate of 3.5% and 2.4%, respectively, exclusive of the fee on undrawn commitment, as of September 30, 2022 and 2021.

On July 29, 2022 the Company increased the size of the Credit Facility by $35.0 million from $465.0 million to $500.0 million. At the same time the Company extended maturity date of the Credit Facility to July 29, 2027.

As of September 30, 2022 and 2021, we had cash and cash equivalents of $52.7 million and $20.4 million, respectively, available for investing and general corporate purposes. We believe our liquidity and capital resources are sufficient to tallow us to operate our business.

Our operating activities used cash of $19.0 million for the year ended September 30, 2022, and our financing activities provided cash of $52.0 million for the same period. Our operating activities used cash primarily for our investment activities and our financing activities provided cash primarily from the issuance of our 2026-2 Notes and net repayments under our Credit Facility and the repayment of the SBA debentures.

Our operating activities provided cash of $7.9 million for the year ended September 30, 2021, and our financing activities used cash of $(13.4) million for the same period. Our operating activities used cash primarily for our investment activities and our financing activities provided cash primarily for net borrowings under our Credit Facility and the repayment of the SBA debentures.

STOCK REPURCHASE PROGRAM

On February 9, 2022, we announced a share repurchase program which allows us to repurchase up to $25 million of our outstanding common stock in the open market at prices below our net asset value as reported in our then most recently published consolidated financial statements. The shares may be purchased from time to time at prevailing market prices, through open market transactions, including block transactions. Unless extended by our board of directors, the program, which may be implemented at the discretion of management, will expire on the earlier of March 31, 2023 and the repurchase of $25 million of common stock. During the three months and year ended September 30, 2022, we repurchased 189,442 and 1,820,605, respectively, shares of common stock in open market transactions for an aggregate cost (including transaction costs) of $1.2 million and $13.2 million, respectively.

DISTRIBUTIONS

During the years ended September 30, 2022 and 2021, we declared distributions of $0.555 and $0.480 per share, for total distributions of $36.6 million and $32.2 million, respectively. We monitor available net investment income to determine if a return of capital for tax purposes may occur for the fiscal year. To the extent our taxable earnings fall below the total amount of our distributions for any given fiscal year, stockholders will be notified of the portion of those distributions deemed to be a tax return of capital. Tax characteristics of all distributions will be reported to stockholders subject to information reporting on Form 1099-DIV after the end of each calendar year and in our periodic reports filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission, or the SEC.
