Operating Results

For the three months ended September 30, 2018, we reported total investment income of approximately $7.2 million as compared to approximately $6.3 million in the same period last year. Investment income from debt securities increased to approximately $4.8 million from approximately $2.4 million in the third quarter of 2017. Investment income on CLO fund securities in the third quarter of 2018 decreased to approximately $1.3 million from approximately $2.8 million for the same period in 2017. We received distributions from our Asset Manager Affiliates of $300,000 in the third quarter of 2018. The Asset Manager Affiliates distributed $880,000 in the third quarter of 2017, of which $700,000 was a return of capital.

For the three months ended September 30, 2018, total expenses increased by approximately $480,000 as compared to the same period in 2017, primarily attributable to an increase in interest expense. Net investment income for the third quarter of 2018 and 2017 was approximately $3.0 million and $2.5 million, respectively, or $0.08 and $0.07 per basic share, respectively. Net realized and unrealized losses on investments for the three months ended September 30, 2018 was approximately $1.6 million, compared to net realized and unrealized gains on investments of approximately $816,000 for the same period in 2017.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

At September 30, 2018, we had unrestricted cash and money market balances of approximately $26.1 million, total assets of approximately $280 million and stockholders’ equity of approximately $174 million. Our net asset value per common share was $4.66. As of September 30, 2018, we had approximately $107.4 million (par value) of borrowings outstanding ($103.7 million net of capitalized costs) with a weighted average interest rate of approximately 6.1%.

Subject to prevailing market conditions, we intend to grow our portfolio of assets by raising additional capital, including through the prudent use of leverage available to us. As a result, we may seek to enter into new agreements with other lenders or into other financing arrangements as market conditions permit. Such financing arrangements may include a new secured and/or unsecured credit facility or the issuance of unsecured debt or preferred stock.

Distributions

Generally, we seek to fund distributions to shareholders from current distributable earnings, primarily from net interest and dividend income generated by our investment portfolio and any distributions from our Asset Manager Affiliates. However, a portion of distributions paid to shareholders may be a return of capital. We announced a regular quarterly distribution of $0.10 per share during the quarter ended September 30, 2018. The record date for this distribution was October 9, 2018 and the distribution was paid on October 29, 2018. An estimate of the tax attributes of distributions made on a quarterly basis may not be representative of the actual tax attributes of distributions for a full year. Tax characteristics of all distributions will be reported to stockholders on Form 1099-DIV after the end of the calendar year.

We have adopted a dividend reinvestment plan that provides for reinvestment of distributions in shares of our common stock, unless a stockholder elects to receive cash. As a result, if we declare a cash distribution, shareholders who have not “opted out” of our dividend reinvestment plan will have their cash distributions automatically reinvested in additional shares of our common stock, rather than receiving cash. For more information regarding our distributions, please refer to our 2017 annual financial report. Please contact your broker or other financial intermediary for more information regarding the dividend reinvestment plan.
