Portfolio and Investment Activities

As of March 31, 2014, the Company had investments in 139 portfolio companies with a total fair value of $1,211.9 million and had investments in subordinated notes and limited liability company ("LLC") interests in Senior Loan Fund LLC ("SLF") with a total fair value of $41.7 million.  The investments in portfolio companies as of March 31, 2014 consisted of $282.2 million of senior secured loans, $773.6 million of one stop loans, $111.8 million of second lien loans, $4.2 million of subordinated debt and $40.1 million of equity investments.  This compares to the Company's portfolio as of December 31, 2013, as of which date the Company had investments in 139 portfolio companies with a total fair value of $1,147.2 million and had investments in subordinated notes and LLC interests in SLF with a total fair value of $32.7 million.  The investments in portfolio companies as of December 31, 2013 consisted of $290.6 million of senior secured loans, $702.0 million of one stop loans, $111.0 million of second lien loans, $5.9 million of subordinated debt and $37.7 million of equity investments.

For the quarter ended March 31, 2014, the Company originated $173.5 million in new middle-market investment commitments and invested $9.0 million in SLF, making total new investment commitments $182.5 million for the quarter.  Approximately 14% of the new total investment commitments were senior secured loans, 80% were one stop loans, 1% was equity securities and 5% were investments in SLF.  Overall, total investments at fair value increased by $73.7 million during the three months ended March 31, 2014 after factoring in debt repayments, sales of securities, net fundings on revolvers and net change in unrealized gains (losses).

For the quarter ended March 31, 2014, the weighted average annualized investment income yield (which includes interest and fee income and amortization of capitalized fees and discounts) and the weighted average annualized income yield (which excludes income resulting from amortization of capitalized fees and discounts) on the fair value of earning investments in the Company's portfolio were 8.6% and 8.0%, respectively.

Consolidated Results of Operations

Total investment income for the quarter ended March 31, 2014 and December 31, 2013 was $25.2 million and $25.6 million, respectively.  This $0.4 million decrease was primarily attributable to a decline in fee income attributable to a decline of prepayment fees in the quarter ended March 31, 2014 that was partially offset by an increase in dividend income and an increase in the yield on the SLF subordinated notes.  The yield on the SLF subordinated notes increased from the London Interbank Offered Rate ("LIBOR") plus four percent to LIBOR plus eight percent at the time SLF entered into its senior secured revolving credit facility with Wells Fargo Bank, N.A. during the quarter ended March 31, 2014.

Total expenses for the quarter ended March 31, 2014 and December 31, 2013 were $11.9 million and $12.3 million, respectively.  This $0.4 million decrease was primarily due to a $1.4 million decrease in incentive fees primarily attributable to a decline in net investment income.  The decline in net investment income was primarily the result of lower prepayment fee income and yield compression on new investments.

During the quarter ended March 31, 2014, the Company recorded a net realized gain of $0.1 million and recorded net unrealized appreciation of $0.6 million.  The net realized gain was primarily attributable to a small cash collection on a previously written-off investment.  The net unrealized appreciation was primarily related to net unrealized appreciation on several middle-market debt and equity investments.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

The Company's liquidity and capital resources are derived from the Company's debt securitization, U.S. Small Business Administration ("SBA") debentures, revolving credit facilities and cash flow from operations.  The Company's primary uses of funds from operations include investment in portfolio companies and payment of fees and other expenses that the Company incurs.  The Company has used, and expects to continue to use, its debt securitization, SBA debentures, revolving credit facilities, proceeds from its investment portfolio and proceeds from offerings of its securities to finance its investment objectives. 

As of March 31, 2014, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of $12.8 million, restricted cash and cash equivalents of $41.3 million and $590.4 million of debt and secured borrowings outstanding. As of March 31, 2014, the Company had $110.2 million of commitments and $70.6 million available for additional borrowings on its revolving credit facilities, subject to leverage and borrowing base restrictions.  As of March 31, 2014, the Company had $22.6 million of additional SBA debentures available, subject to customary SBA regulatory requirements.

On May 6, 2014, the Company's board of directors declared a quarterly distribution of $0.32 per share, payable on June 27, 2014 to holders of record as of June 16, 2014.

Portfolio and Asset Quality

GC Advisors regularly assesses the risk profile of each of the Company's investments and rates each of them based on an internal system developed by Golub Capital and its affiliates.  This system is not generally accepted in our industry or used by our competitors.  It is based on the following categories, which we refer to as GC Advisors' internal performance rating:

 




Internal Performance Ratings

Rating


Definition

5


Involves the least amount of risk in our portfolio. The borrower is performing above expectations, and the trends and risk factors are generally favorable.

4


Involves an acceptable level of risk that is similar to the risk at the time of origination. The borrower is generally performing as expected, and the risk factors are neutral to favorable.

3


Involves a borrower performing below expectations and indicates that the loan's risk has increased somewhat since origination. The borrower may be out of compliance with debt covenants; however, loan payments are generally not past due.

2


Involves a borrower performing materially below expectations and indicates that the loan's risk has increased materially since origination. In addition to the borrower being generally out of compliance with debt covenants, loan payments may be past due (but generally not more than 180 days past due).

1


Involves a borrower performing substantially below expectations and indicates that the loan's risk has substantially increased since origination. Most or all of the debt covenants are out of compliance and payments are substantially delinquent. Loans rated 1 are not anticipated to be repaid in full and we will reduce the fair market value of the loan to the amount we anticipate will be recovered.

Our internal performance ratings do not constitute any rating of investments by a nationally recognized statistical rating organization or represent or reflect any third-party assessment of any of our investments. 

The following table shows the distribution of the Company's investments on the 1 to 5 internal performance rating scale at fair value as of March 31, 2014 and December 31, 2013:
