Alcentra Capital Corporation Announces Second Quarter 2019 Financial Results

Aug 7, 2019

NEW YORK, Aug. 7, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Alcentra Capital Corporation (NASDAQ: ABDC) (the "Company"), a provider of debt financing solutions to middle-market companies based primarily in the United States, today announced its financial results for the second quarter of 2019.

Second Quarter 2019 Highlights

  • Total investment income of $6.1 million
  • Net investment income of $2.5 million, or $0.20 per share
  • Invested approximately $28.6 million of capital into 6 new portfolio investments, including two new companies
  • Received proceeds from repayments, loan dispositions and amortization on investments of approximately $22.1 million
  • Net asset value of $141.9 million, or $11.02 per share, after taking into account the $0.15 special dividend paid on July 3, 2019
  • Weighted average debt portfolio yield of approximately 10.7%

Suhail A. Shaikh, Chief Executive Officer of the Company, stated, "Over the last several quarters we have made significant progress in rotating our legacy portfolio into our new strategy and stabilizing NAV amid a competitive environment for direct lending. We are pleased with the higher quality of the book today against the comparable period."

Second Quarter 2019 Financial Results

For the three months ended June 30, 2019, total investment income was $6.1 million, a decrease of approximately $1.1 million from the $7.3 million of total investment income for the three months ended June 30, 2018. This decrease was due to continued portfolio rotation of legacy investments to investments more senior in the capital structure of our portfolio companies, and the associated decrease in weighted-average yields. For the three months ended June 30, 2019, interest and PIK income comprised $5.9 million. Net investment income for the three months ended June 30, 2019 was $2.5 million, or $0.20 per share, as compared to $3.5 million, or $0.25 per share, for the three months ended June 30, 2018.

For the three months ended June 30, 2019, total net expenses (after the waiver of management fees) were $3.6 million, a decrease of $0.2 million or 4.3%, from the $3.8 million for the three months ended June 30, 2018. Base management fees were $0.8 million, a decrease of $0.2 million, or 18.8%, from the $1.0 million for the three months ended June 30, 2018. This decrease was due to the lower amount of gross assets outstanding between the comparable periods. For the three months ended June 30, 2019, the Company recorded a net realized gain of $1.6 million and net change in unrealized depreciation from portfolio investments of $1.1 million. As a result, after considering the Company's provision for taxes on unrealized gains, the Company's net increase in net assets resulting from operations was $2.1 million for the three months ended June 30, 2019.

General and administrative expenses for the three months ended June 30, 2019 were $1.5 million, an increase of $0.6 million from the comparable period. This was largely due to an increase in professional fees and directors' fees, both primarily relating to stockholder activist activities and the board of director's formal review process to evaluate strategic alternatives for the Company. These were partially offset by a decrease in our excise tax payable, consulting fees and a reversal of accrued incentive fees.

Portfolio and Investment Activities

As of June 30, 2019, the fair value of the Company's investment portfolio totaled $219.2 million and consisted of 28 companies and 1 rated debt security in a CLO. The average portfolio investment size on an amortized cost and fair market basis was $7.2 million and $7.0 million, respectively. The Company received proceeds from repayments, loan dispositions, and amortization on investments of approximately $22.1 million during the three months ended June 30, 2019.

New and add-on investments totaling approximately $28.6 million during the quarter ended June 30, 2019 included the following:

New portfolio company investment:

  • Investment of $5.0 million in the first lien tranche and $5.0 million in the second lien tranche of Perforce Software, Inc.;
  • Investment of $7.0 million in the first lien tranche of Digital Room Holdings, Inc.

At June 30, 2019, the Company had $7.8 million in cash, $26.6 million of borrowings outstanding on its $115.0 million senior secured revolving credit facility and $55.0 million outstanding of Alcentra Capital InterNotes.

*The Company's net asset value per share as of June 30, 2019 was $11.17, excluding the impact of the $0.15 per share special distribution paid to stockholders of record as of June 28, 2019. As a supplement to generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP") financial measures, the Company has provided this non-GAAP financial measure. The Company believes that this non-GAAP financial measure is useful as it highlights the NAV per common share for the quarter excluding the impact of the special distribution that was paid and shows the Company's pro forma NAV after payment of regular distributions.
