Inclusive of $10.3 million, or $0.31 per weighted-average common share, and $3.6 million, or $0.11 per weighted-average common share, of capital gains-based incentive fees accrued during the three months ended June 30, 2021 and March 31, 2021, respectively. These fees were accrued in accordance with United States generally accepted accounting principles (“U.S. GAAP”), where such amounts were not contractually due under the terms of the investment advisory agreement for the respective periods. Also see discussion under Non-GAAP Financial Measure – Adjusted Net Investment Income below.

See Non-GAAP Financial Measure — Adjusted Net Investment Income, below, for a description of this non-GAAP measure and a reconciliation from Net investment income to Adjusted net investment income, including on a weighted-average per share basis. The Company uses this non-GAAP financial measure internally in analyzing financial results and believes it is useful to investors as an additional tool to evaluate ongoing results and trends for the Company.

Highlights for the Quarter: During the quarter ended June 30, 2021, the following significant events occurred:

 

   

Portfolio Activity:

 

   

Exited one investment, which resulted in success fee income of $2.0 million, repayment of our debt investment of $9.1 million at par, and a realized gain of $3.6 million;

 

   

Dissolved one investment, which resulted in a realized loss of $1.8 million;

 

   

Invested $10.0 million through a combination of secured first lien debt and preferred equity into one new portfolio company; and

 

   

Invested $7.2 million in various existing portfolio companies.

 

   

Distributions and Dividends:

 

   

Paid the following monthly cash distributions to common stockholders and dividends to preferred stockholders for each of April, May, and June 2021:

 

   

$0.07 per common share; and

 

   

$0.13281250 per share to holders of our 6.375% Series E Cumulative Term Preferred Stock (Nasdaq: GAINL) (“Series E Term Preferred Stock”).

 

   

Paid a $0.06 per common share supplemental distribution in June 2021.

First Quarter Results: Net investment loss for the quarter ended June 30, 2021 was $2.3 million, or $0.07 per weighted-average common share, compared to net investment income for the quarter ended March 31, 2021 of $3.1 million, or $0.09 per weighted-average common share. This change was a result of an increase in total expenses, net of credits, partially offset by an increase in total investment income, quarter over quarter.

Total investment income during the quarters ended June 30, 2021 and March 31, 2021 was $18.0 million and $16.7 million, respectively. The quarter over quarter increase was primarily due to a $3.3 million increase in interest income, a result of payments of past due interest from portfolio companies previously on non-accrual status, partially offset by a $2.0 million decrease in dividend and success fee income, the timing of which can be variable.

Total expenses, net of credits, during the quarters ended June 30, 2021 and March 31, 2021 were $20.3 million and $13.6 million, respectively. The quarter over quarter increase was primarily due to a $6.7 million increase in the capital gains-based incentive fees in the current quarter, as a result of the net impact of realized and unrealized gains and losses, and, to a lesser extent, due to a $0.9 million increase in interest expense, a $0.8 million increase in other expenses, partially offset by a $0.9 million increase in credits to fees from adviser and a $0.6 million decrease in dividend expense.

Net asset value per common share as of June 30, 2021 was $12.66, compared to $11.52 as of March 31, 2021. The quarter over quarter increase was primarily due to $47.5 million, or $1.43 per common share, of net unrealized appreciation, and $1.9 million, or $0.06 per common share, of realized gains, partially offset by $9.0 million, or $0.27 per common share, of distributions paid to common shareholders, and $2.3 million, or $0.07 per common share, of net investment loss.

(A) 

Represents a supplemental distribution to common stockholders.

Non-GAAP Financial Measure — Adjusted Net Investment Income: On a supplemental basis, the Company discloses Adjusted net investment income, including on a per share basis, which is a financial measure that is calculated and presented on a basis of methodology other than in accordance with U.S. GAAP (“non-GAAP”). Adjusted net investment income represents net investment income, excluding capital gains-based incentive fees. The Company uses this non-GAAP financial measure internally in analyzing financial results and believes that this non-GAAP financial measure is useful to investors as an additional tool to evaluate ongoing results and trends for the Company. The Company’s investment advisory agreement provides that a capital gains-based incentive fee is determined and paid annually with respect to realized capital gains (but not unrealized appreciation) to the extent such realized capital gains exceed realized capital losses and unrealized depreciation on investments for such year. However, under U.S. GAAP, a capital gains-based incentive fee is accrued if realized capital gains and unrealized appreciation of investments exceed realized capital losses and unrealized depreciation of investments. Refer to Note 4 – Related Party Transactions in our Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for further discussion. The Company believes that Adjusted net investment income is a useful indicator of operations exclusive of any capital gains-based incentive fees, as net investment income does not include realized or unrealized investment activity associated with the capital gains-based incentive fee.

Adjusted net investment income may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other companies, as it is a non-GAAP financial measure that is not based on a comprehensive set of accounting rules or principles and therefore may be defined differently by other companies. In addition, Adjusted net investment income should be considered in addition to, not as a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures determined in accordance with U.S. GAAP.
