Horizon Technology Finance announced the termination of its term loan credit facility with Fortress Credit Co, an affiliate of Fortress Investment Group and the company's prepayment of all outstanding amounts due thereunder. Horizon maintains borrowing capacity pursuant to its existing $50M revolving credit facility with Key Equipment Finance which contains an accordion feature allowing for an increase in the total loan commitment up to an aggregate commitment of $150M. In connection with the prepayment and termination of the Term Loan Facility, Horizon expects to record a one-time interest expense charge of $1.9M for the quarter ended June 30. These nonrecurring expenses consist of a non-cash expense of $1.1M from the acceleration of unamortized debt issuance costs, and a cash expense of $800,000 incurred by the payment of a prepayment fee. The non-recurring expenses are expected to be partially offset by a reduction of approximately $700,000 in incentive fees that would otherwise have been due to the company's advisor in Q2 if the Term Loan Facility had not been terminated. As a result, the net impact from the prepayment and termination of the Term Loan Facility on Horizon's net investment income is expected to be approximately $1.2M, or 12c per share, for the quarter ended June 30. There will be no ongoing obligations or expenses associated with the termination and prepayment of the Term Loan Facility. As a result of the termination and prepayment of the Term Loan Facility, commencing with the Q3, Horizon expects to reduce its quarterly interest expense by approximately $300,000, or 3c per share.
