    At September 30, 2002, American Capital's portfolio investments increased 60% over the same period in 2001, a sign of the
    remarkable opportunities in the middle market and our growing market share," said Chairman, President and CEO Malon Wilkus.
    "We are pleased by the performance of our investments through a period impacted by a recession and terrorist attacks.
    Through the third quarter of this year, we've exited $189 million of $1.4 billion of cumulative investments since our IPO, or
    14%. These exited investments included senior debt, subordinated debt and equity. Only one investment had a negative
    compounded annual internal rate of return (IRR), and the weighted average IRR on all exits totaled 17%. This shows the power
    of targeting diversified companies with strong historical cash flows and investing with terms that generate attractive interest
    income, appropriate fees and significant equity interests. We expect a higher volume of exits and greater returns in the year
    ahead, as we appear to be moving into a healthier economy."
