NEW YORK, NY, August 8, 2017 – WhiteHorse Finance, Inc.

(“WhiteHorse Finance” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: WHF) today announced its financial results for the quarter ended June 30, 2017.

 

Second Quarter 2017 Summary Highlights

 

·New investments of $36.1 million
·Net investment income of $6.9 million
·Second quarter net investment income of $0.378 per share
·Second quarter distribution of $0.355 per share
·Public offering of 2,200,000 shares at $13.97 per share results in net proceeds of approximately $30.3 million

 

Stuart Aronson, WhiteHorse Finance’s Chief Executive Officer commented, “This was a solid quarter for WhiteHorse Finance, with strong net interest income and modest gains in our NAV. We remain committed to conservative investing in senior secured assets with a goal of earning our dividend each year and protecting NAV. The pipeline for the third quarter is strong, with the majority of the pipeline comprised of directly originated sponsor and non-sponsor deals with low leverage and expected double digit returns.”

 

Portfolio and Investment Activity

 

As of June 30, 2017, the fair value of WhiteHorse Finance’s investment portfolio was $437.9 million, compared with $431.7 million as of March 31, 2017. The portfolio at June 30, 2017 consisted of 39 positions across 30 companies with an average investment size of $11.2 million and a weighted average effective yield of 11.9%, remaining relatively flat as compared to last quarter. The majority of the portfolio was comprised of senior secured loans, and these loans were substantially all variable-rate investments (primarily indexed to LIBOR), which should continue to position the portfolio well for a potential rising interest rate environment.

 

During the three months ended June 30, 2017, WhiteHorse Finance made investments in two new portfolio companies totaling $36.1 million. Gross proceeds from sales and repayments totaled $35.5 million for the quarter. The Company continued to be highly selective in deploying new investments.

 

Results of Operations

 

For the three months ended June 30, 2017, net investment income was approximately $6.9 million, compared with approximately $6.4 million for the same period in the prior year, representing an increase of 7.9%. The increase in net investment income was primarily attributable to an increase of investment income due to higher interest and non-recurring fee income partially offset by an increase in interest expense resulting from higher interest rates and higher borrowing balances on the Company’s line of credit facility as compared to the same period in the prior year. Over the past 10 quarters, cumulative core net investment income, a non-GAAP financial measure, exceeded distributions to stockholders.(1)

 

For the three months ended June 30, 2017, WhiteHorse Finance reported realized and unrealized gains on investments of $0.3 million. This compares with realized and unrealized gains on investments of $1.7 million for the three months ended June 30, 2016. The decrease in realized and unrealized gains on investments was primarily attributable to a smaller net amount of fair value adjustments.

 

WhiteHorse Finance reported a net increase in net assets resulting from operations of approximately $7.3 million for the three months ended June 30, 2017, which compares with a net increase of $8.1 million for the three months ended June 30, 2016.

 

WhiteHorse Finance’s NAV was $283.8 million, or $13.83 per share, as of June 30, 2017, as compared with $252.5 million, or $13.80 per share, reported as of March 31, 2017.
