    • According to the conference call the company holds corporate loans-senior secured loans NO CDO's or mortgage backed paper. CLO investment activities with high returns in the 28% range. Growing the middle market portfolio. Completed an oversubscribed 1 for 6 rights offering that was at about 9 dollars a share producing cash on the balance sheet for for future investing. Stock trades at a 25% discount at the already heavily discounted NAV as of CC. They have not been overdistributing the divi. Only one issurer in default with a significant asset value for recovery. Very well diversified compared to other BDC's. No exposure to consumer lending or lenders. The loans are doing great and generating healthy cash returns. 90% of the portfolio in secured first and second lien loans. The problem seems to be that because the loans are hard to sell to other parties and are therefore illiquid. They expect to continue to raise the divi as time goes by. Nav is about 14 a share. So why is the stock at 8.50 a share prior to divi???? Is it because Kohlberg is off the board and the directors are giving up options in favor of restricted shares? Kohlberg himself owns over 1 million shares. Thought?
