RESULTS OF OPERATIONS
Total investment income for the three months ended December 31, 2016 and September 30, 2016 was $30.5 million and $34.0 million, respectively. The decrease in investment income over the quarter was primarily driven by the classification of Iracore and WIS as non-accrual investments and a decline in prepayment related income.

Total expenses before taxes for the three months ended December 31, 2016 and September 30, 2016 were $12.0 million and $15.0 million, respectively. The $3.0 million decrease in expenses was primarily driven by a decrease in incentive fees. The $12.0 million of total expenses were comprised of $4.4 million of interest and credit facility expenses, $5.9 million of management and incentive fees, and $1.7 million of other operating expenses.

Net investment income after taxes for the three months ended December 31, 2016 was $18.1 million, or $0.50 per share, compared with $18.7 million, or $0.51 per share for the three months ended September 30, 2016.

7 Interest income excludes accelerated accretion/amortization of $0.1 million. Prepayment related income includes prepayment premiums and accelerated accretion of upfront loan origination fees and unamortized discounts.
