·Investment portfolio(1) totaling $595.3 million

(1) Includes investments in WHF STRS Ohio Senior Loan Fund LLC (“STRS JV”), an unconsolidated joint venture, totaling $50.4 million, at fair value.

(2) Excludes investments made in STRS JV.

(3) Core net investment income is a non-GAAP financial measure. The Company believes that core net investment income provides useful information to investors and management because it reflects the Company's financial performance excluding (i) the net impact of costs associated with the refinancing of the Company’s indebtedness, (ii) the accrual of the capital gains incentive fee attributable to net realized and unrealized gains and losses, and (iii) excise and other income taxes related to such net realized gains and losses (net of incentive fees). The presentation of this additional information is not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for financial results prepared in accordance with GAAP. Additional information on core net investment income and a reconciliation of core net investment income to its most directly comparable GAAP financial measure, net investment income, are set forth in Schedule 1 hereto.


Stuart Aronson, WhiteHorse Finance’s Chief Executive Officer commented, “As the market continues to recover from the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, our portfolio showed strength and resilience during the third quarter. Core NII meaningfully exceeded our quarterly dividend and NAV increased materially back to pre-COVID levels. Our portfolio grew to a fair value of $595.3 million after adding three new first lien positions as well as several meaningful add-ons, and our debt portfolio was comprised of 94.2% first lien loans. With a strong pipeline coming up in the fourth quarter, we have successfully added another $40 million unsecured notes at favorable pricing to fully take advantage of the opportunities in the current market. While we are encouraged by our performance in the face of uncertainties in the current macro environment, we will remain prudent and judicious in our execution, maintaining our discipline and rigorous underwriting standards to enhance value for our shareholders.”


Portfolio and Investment Activity


As of September 30, 2020, the fair value of WhiteHorse Finance’s investment portfolio was $595.3 million, compared with $547.4 million as of June 30, 2020. The portfolio at September 30, 2020 consisted of 73 positions across 54 companies with a weighted average effective yield of 9.9% on income-producing debt investments. The average debt investment size (excluding investments in STRS JV) was $8.8 million with the overall portfolio comprised of approximately 83.1% first lien secured loans, 5.0% second lien secured loans, 0.1% subordinated debt, 3.3% equity and 8.5% in investments in STRS JV. Almost all loans were substantially variable-rate investments (primarily indexed to the London Interbank Offered Rate) with fixed rate securities representing only 0.4% of loans at fair value. Nearly all performing floating rate investments have interest rate floors.


During the three months ended September 30, 2020, WhiteHorse Finance made investments in three new portfolio companies totaling $42.6 million, added a total of $15.7 million to five existing portfolio companies and funded $0.7 million to revolver commitments. Proceeds from sales and repayments totaled approximately $26.5 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2020, driven by full realizations in PMA Holdco, LLC as well as in Rural Media Group, Inc. and payments received from AG Kings Holdings Inc., which reduced the cost basis in the investment by $3.5 million.


In addition to the transactions above, during the three months ended September 30, 2020, WhiteHorse Finance transferred one position totaling $1.3 million to STRS JV in exchange for cash consideration.
