- Per share amounts are based on approximately 9.4 million weighted average shares outstanding compared to 7.6 million weighted average shares outstanding for the third quarter of 2013, reflecting the common equity offerings completed in January and February, 2014.
- Total portfolio investments at March 31, 2014 were $90.1 million compared to $88.1 million at March 31, 2013 and $75.9 million at December 31, 2013.
- Weighted average portfolio interest rate was 11.41% at March 31, 2014.

On May 2, 2014, the Board of Directors declared monthly distributions for the first quarter of fiscal 2015 as follows:
|Record Date||Payment Date||Per Share Amount|
|July 31, 2014||August 15, 2014||$0.067|
|August 29, 2014||September 15, 2014||$0.067|
|September 30, 2014||October 15, 2014||$0.067|

“Increased origination activity since the beginning of 2014 has resulted in the closing of six new opportunities to date, totaling $29.0 million. This effectively replaced the $29.0 million of realizations we received in the second and third quarters, resulting in an investment portfolio of $90.1 million at the end of the third quarter. With $45 million in funding capacity at March 31st, we believe we are well positioned to execute on our expanded opportunity set,” said John Stuart, Chairman and Co-Chief Executive Officer of Full Circle Capital Corporation.
Gregg Felton, President and Co-Chief Executive Officer commented, “The broadening of our investment strategies contributed to an accelerated level of investment activity in the third quarter. We intend to further broaden our origination channels and to continue to expand our investment team to execute on our growing pipeline of investment opportunities.”
