  • Adjusted Net Investment Income (a non-GAAP measure described in our press release) of $4.2 million, or $0.44 per share;
  • Net increase in net assets resulting from operations of $3.9 million, or $0.41 per share;
  • Net asset value ("NAV") of $135.9 million, or $14.11 per share;
  • Completed a public offering of approximately 2.5 million shares on April 20, 2015, generating gross proceeds of $36.4 million;
  • Six consecutive quarters of Net Investment Income growth when compared to the prior year quarter; and
  • Announced a 3% increase in the quarterly dividend to $0.35 per share ($1.40 annualized), our tenth consecutive quarterly dividend, providing a current cash dividend yield of approximately 9.7%.

Chief Executive Officer Theodore L. Koenig commented, “We are pleased to report another strong quarter of performance for the first quarter of 2015, with adjusted net investment income per share of $0.44 per share comfortably covering our dividend of $0.35 per share. We are also excited that we were able to complete a public offering of approximately 2.5 million shares on April 20, 2015 generating gross proceeds of $36.4 million. In an environment when many other BDCs are trading below book value and not generating enough income to cover their dividends, we are pleased to be able to raise this capital at an accretive price to our per share NAV and generate value for our shareholders. We expect to invest this capital over the next quarters in order to support the continued growth of the portfolio.”
