MCLEAN, Va., Aug. 9, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Gladstone Capital Corporation (Nasdaq:GLAD) (the "Company") today announced earnings for the third quarter ended June 30, 2010. All per share references are per basic and diluted weighted average common shares outstanding, unless otherwise noted.
Net Investment Income for 3 Months: Net Investment Income for the quarter ended June 30, 2010 was $4.4 million, or $0.21 per share, as compared to $5.4 million, or $0.26 per share, for the prior year period, a decrease in Net Investment Income of 19% and a decrease of 19% per share. Net Investment Income decreased primarily due to a decline in investment income resulting from the repayment and sale of loans, incentive fees accrued and lower transaction fees received during the three months ended June 30, 2010 than during the prior year period.
Net Investment Income for 9 Months: Net Investment Income for the nine months ended June 30, 2010 was $13.3 million, or $0.63 per share, as compared to $16.9 million, or $0.80 per share, for the prior year period, a decrease in Net Investment Income of 21% and a decrease of 21% per share. Net Investment Income decreased primarily due to a decline in investment income resulting from the repayment and sale of loans, incentive fees accrued and lower transaction fees received during the nine months ended June 30, 2010 than during the prior year period.
Net Decrease in Net Assets Resulting from Operations for 3 Months: Net Decrease in Net Assets Resulting from Operations for the quarter ended June 30, 2010 was $1.7 million, or $0.08 per share, as compared to a Net Decrease in Net Assets Resulting from Operations of $0.8 million, or $0.04 per share, for the prior year period. The higher Net Decrease in Net Assets Resulting from Operations between the two periods was primarily due to the lower net investment income.
Net Increase in Net Assets Resulting from Operations for 9 Months: Net Increase in Net Assets Resulting from Operations for the nine months ended June 30, 2010 was $12.6 million, or $0.60 per share, as compared to a Net Increase in Net Assets Resulting from Operations of $0.4 million, or $0.02 per share, for the prior year period. The increase in the Net Increase in Net Assets Resulting from Operations between the two periods was primarily due to the net gain on the Company's investment portfolio. The Company recorded net realized and unrealized loss on investments, derivatives and line of credit of $0.8 million for the nine months ended June 30, 2010, compared to a net realized and unrealized loss of $16.5 million for the prior year period.
Estimated Fair Value: The aggregate investment portfolio depreciated during the three months ended June 30, 2010. As of June 30, 2010, the entire portfolio was fair valued at 87% of cost, as compared to 88% of cost at September 30, 2009.
Asset Characteristics: Total assets were $283.6 million at June 30, 2010, as compared to $335.9 million at September 30, 2009. Net asset value was $11.81 per actual common share outstanding at June 30, 2010 and September 30, 2009. At June 30, 2010, the Company had investments in 40 private companies with an aggregate cost basis of $309.9 million and an aggregate fair value of $270.0 million. Average asset risk rating for the non-syndicated loans in the Company's portfolio at June 30, 2010 was 6.5 on a ten point scale as compared to 7.1 at September 30, 2009.
Annualized Yield: The annualized weighted average yield on the Company's portfolio, excluding cash and cash equivalents, was 9.8% for the quarter ended June 30, 2010, as compared to 10.4% for the prior year period. The weighted average yield varies from period to period based on the current stated interest rate on interest-bearing investments and the amounts of loans for which interest is not accruing. The decrease in the weighted average yield for the quarter ended June 30, 2010 resulted primarily from the Company's exit of higher interest-bearing loans subsequent to June 30, 2009. The effect of continuing reductions in LIBOR has been mitigated by the presence of a rate floor or fixed rate on most of the non-syndicated loans held in the Company's portfolio as of June 30, 2010.
Highlights for 3 Months: For the quarter ended June 30, 2010, the Company reported the following significant events:
- Funded approximately $0.4 million of a new investment and $1.8 million of additional investments to existing portfolio companies, for an aggregate of $2.2 million;
- Received principal repayments of approximately $18.5 million, which included scheduled principal payments and full repayment from one company;
- Wrote off approximately $2.9 million of an investment and recorded a corresponding realized net loss of approximately $2.9 million;
- Received approximately $0.4 million in success fees as prepayment from one investment;
- Entered into an equity distribution agreement with BB&T Capital Markets (the "Agent"), under which the Company may, from time to time, issue and sell through the Agent, up to 2,000,000 shares of the Company's common stock; and
- Paid monthly cash distributions of $0.07 per share for each of the months of April, May and June 2010.
Comments from President and Chief Investment Officer Chip Stelljes: "During the quarter, we received proceeds from repayments/sales of approximately $18.5 million, including the successful realization of one investment. This has allowed us to deleverage our company in line with the realities of today's market. With our $127 million line of credit and the currently outstanding balance on the line of about $18.2 million, we are actively reviewing new investment opportunities, and we believe that we will be able to increase our new investment activity over the next twelve months."
Subsequent to June 30, 2010, the Company:
- Funded approximately $2.4 million of additional investments to existing portfolio companies;
- Received approximately $8.7 million from scheduled and unscheduled loan repayments;
- Renewed the advisory agreement with its adviser, Gladstone Management Corporation, and the administration agreement with Gladstone Administration, LLC through August 31, 2011; and
