FINANCIAL HIGHLIGHTS

  • Net investment income for the quarter ended June 30, 2016 was $18.5 million, or $0.38 per share on a diluted basis, net of $0.09 per share in incentive compensation.
  • Net increase in net assets resulting from operations for the quarter ended June 30, 2016 was $21.2 million, or $0.43 per share.
  • Net asset value per share at June 30, 2016 increased to $14.74 from $14.66 at March 31, 2016 primarily as a result of narrower market yield spreads and net investment income in excess of paid dividends.
  • Total acquisitions during the quarter ended June 30, 2016 were $119.1 million and total dispositions were $119.9 million.
  • On April 18, 2016, the Company issued $30.0 million in aggregate principal amount of a 5.25% convertible senior unsecured note, which was subsequently converted into equity on June 7, 2016, and, following quarter end on July 13, 2016, the Company issued an additional $35.3 million of stock in a registered direct offering. No placement agent or underwriting fees were incurred in connection with either issuance.
  • On August 9, 2016, our board of directors declared a third quarter dividend of $0.36 per share payable on September 30, 2016 to shareholders of record as of September 16, 2016.

"We are pleased with our strong performance during the second quarter, in which we continued to out-earn our dividend as we have done every quarter," said Howard Levkowitz, TCP Capital Corp. Chairman and CEO. "We are also pleased to have structured two very efficient equity raises, which position us well for investments from our strong pipeline. The credit quality of our diversified portfolio remains strong with floating rate debt comprising approximately 80% of our debt portfolio."

PORTFOLIO AND INVESTMENT ACTIVITY

As of June 30, 2016, our investment portfolio consisted of debt and equity positions in 89 portfolio companies with a total fair value of approximately $1,232 million. Debt positions represented approximately 96% of the portfolio at fair value, substantially all of which were senior secured debt. Equity positions represented approximately 4% of our investment portfolio.

As of June 30, 2016, the weighted average annual effective yield of our debt portfolio was approximately 11.0%.(1) As of June 30, 2016, approximately 80% of our debt portfolio at fair value had floating interest rates. As of June 30, 2016, we had three debt investments in two issuers on non-accrual status, totaling 0.4% of the portfolio at fair value. 

During the three months ended June 30, 2016, we invested approximately $119.1 million, primarily in nine investments, comprised of five new and four existing portfolio companies. The investments were comprised of approximately $88.5 million in senior secured loans and $23.2 million in senior secured notes. The remaining $7.4 million was primarily comprised of $7.3 million in equity interests in portfolios of debt and lease assets, as well as $0.1 million in a warrant position received in connection with a debt investment. Additionally, we received proceeds from sales and repayments of investment principal of approximately $119.9 million. We expect to continue to invest in senior secured loans, bonds and subordinated debt, as well as select equity investments, to obtain a high level of current income and create the potential for appreciation, with an emphasis on principal protection.

As of June 30, 2016, total assets were $1,315.6 million, net assets applicable to common shareholders were $747.2 million and net asset value per share was $14.74, as compared to $1,271.2 million, $714.1 million, and $14.66 per share, respectively on March 31, 2016.

CONSOLIDATED RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

Total investment income for the three months ended June 30, 2016 was approximately $35.6 million, or $0.72 per share, including $0.04 per share from prepayment premiums and related amortization, $0.03 per share from original issue discount accretion and $0.03 per share from income paid in kind. This reflects our policy of recording interest income, adjusted for amortization of premium and accretion of discount, on an accrual basis. Origination, structuring, closing, commitment, and similar upfront fees received in connection with the outlay of capital are generally amortized or accreted into interest income over the life of the respective debt investment.

Total operating expenses for the three months ended June 30, 2016 were approximately $12.5 million, or $0.25 per share, including interest and other debt expenses of $5.8 million, or $0.12 per share. We also incurred incentive compensation from net investment income of $4.6 million, or $0.09 per share. Excluding incentive compensation and interest and other debt expenses, annualized second quarter expenses were 3.7% of average net assets.

Net investment income for the three months ended June 30, 2016 was approximately $23.1 million, or $0.47 per share, before related incentive compensation. Net investment income after related incentive compensation was $18.5 million, or $0.38 per share.

Net realized and unrealized gains for the three months ended June 30, 2016 were $2.7 million, or $0.05 per share, comprised of $3.4 million, or $0.07 per share, in net unrealized gains and $0.7 million, or $0.01 per share, in net realized losses, with the difference due to rounding. Net unrealized gains were primarily comprised of a $1.6 million gain on our loan to MD America Energy, LLC, which we sold back to the company, and various mark to market adjustments resulting from improved credits and narrower market yield spreads during the quarter, partially offset by certain markdowns.

Net increase in net assets applicable to common shareholders resulting from operations for the three months ended June 30, 2016 was $21.2 million, or $0.43 per share.

LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES

As of June 30, 2016, available liquidity was approximately $252.0 million, comprised of approximately $227.0 million in available capacity under the leverage program and $38.3 million in cash and cash equivalents, less approximately $13.3 million in net outstanding settlements.

The combined weighted-average interest rate on debt outstanding at June 30, 2016 was 3.18%.
