·$6.3 million senior secured loan (EURIBOR+7.00%) to Clanwilliam Group, an international healthcare technology and services company based in Dublin, Ireland;

 

·the conversion of the Company’s senior secured loan in Xpress Global Systems, LLC (“Xpress”) into an equity investment in connection with the sale of Xpress to a new private equity sponsor; and

 

·the conversion of the Company’s various debt positions in Black Diamond Equipment Rentals, LLC (“Black Diamond”) into one senior secured loan in connection with the recapitalization by Black Diamond’s existing financial sponsor.

 

Also, since January 1, 2018, the Company has repurchased 1,280,111 shares of its outstanding common stock under its share repurchase programs, or approximately 9.0% of the shares outstanding as of January 1, 2018. As of January 14, 2019, the Company has approximately $6.2 million of repurchase authority remaining under the repurchase program announced on November 5, 2018.

 

Alcentra Capital’s CEO, Vijay Rajguru, stated, “We are very focused on implementing our previously announced strategy to turn around the company and enhance stockholder value. We are happy to report that in the fourth quarter we were involved in the exit or recapitalization of several legacy investments and continued to redeploy several of the Company’s portfolio positions into senior loans for larger, financial sponsor-backed middle market companies. These steps, along with share repurchases, have contributed positively to our recent results and have put us on a strong course for success.”
