    Loan repayments

    All the loan repayments are great (and especially the Simpler loan), but IR told me that the Simpler loan was on the books at $3,966,000 as of 9/30/08, so by my calculations, it was overvalued by about $1.0m (someone correct me if my math is wrong) mark to market, with the announced actual realized loss of $1.6m, so this looks like about a $1m hit to NAV.

      investments and further de-leveraging (HTGC) 7.15 -0.07 : Co announces early repayments from four additional technology and life science portfolio companies totaling ~$5.5 mln, including Simpler Networks which was previously identified as a Grade 5 credit quality. In addition, co expects to receive an early repayment of ~$12.0 mln in January 2009, upon the anticipated completed sale of Memory Pharmaceuticals and an additional $1.1 mln of principal repayment during the first quarter 2009 from the sale of Simpler Networks.

      I do not know what affects NAV
      but the above sounded like good news
      to me ie money being recieved.
