"The sale of Summit, combined with the successful completion of our recent unsecured note issuance and subsequent retirement of our $50 million term loan, positions us to implement our strategy shift towards yielding investments. With these activities behind us, we can dedicate resources towards refocusing and building a portfolio of investments capable of offering a steady stream of income to sustain and seek to build our dividend over the long-term," said Michael Tokarz, Chairman and Portfolio Manager. "We are looking to prudently invest the capital we just raised. Our focus will continue to be towards investing in proprietary deals, which we have a successful track record of sourcing."

The Company reported net operating income of $1.0 million for the first quarter, as compared to net operating income of $1.3 million for the same quarter in 2012. Net operating income for the quarter was impacted by the $1.2 million increase in the Company's provision for incentive compensation as a result of an increase in the valuations of certain portfolio companies. This compares to the $1.9 million decrease in the provision for incentive compensation that favorably impacted the net operating income results for the first quarter of 2012.

First-Fiscal Quarter 2013 Portfolio Adjustments
As of January 31, 2013, the Company's net assets were $389.7 million or $16.29 per share, compared with net assets of $386.0 million, or $16.14 per share, at the beginning of the quarter and $407.6 million, or $17.04 per share, at the end of the same period last year. During the quarter, the Valuation Committee, which is comprised of three independent directors, changed the fair values of sixteen portfolio companies, resulting in a net increase of $5.8 million or $0.24 per share. In arriving at these determinations and consistent with the Company's valuation procedures and ASC 820, the Valuation Committee took into account many factors, including the performance of the portfolio companies, as well as the impact of changes in market multiples within certain sectors and fluctuations in currency valuations, particularly in the Euro.
Quarterly Investment Activity
During the quarter, the Company made no new investments and two follow-on investments in two existing portfolio companies, allocating $8.5 million of capital to JSC Tekers Holdings and Biovation Holdings, Inc. During the first quarter ended January 31, 2012, the Company made one new investment and four follow-on investments in two existing portfolio companies, committing total capital of approximately $7.3 million.
As of January 31, 2013, the Company had investments in portfolio companies totaling $416.5 million and investments in cash and cash equivalents of approximately $37.1 million, including restricted cash and cash equivalents of $6.8 million.
Subsequent Quarterly Activity
MVC Capital announced the sale of one of its largest portfolio holdings, Summit Research Labs, Inc. to an affiliate of One Rock Capital Partners, LLC for gross equity proceeds of $63 million, which approximates the fair market value of the asset on our books as of January 31, 2013. Upon completion, the investment will result in an IRR of 31%1, calculated from the original date of purchase in August 2006. As part of the sale, and after receiving repayment of its outstanding $12.1 million loan to Summit, MVC will provide Summit with a new $22 million second lien loan.
Also subsequent to the quarter, MVC issued and sold a total of $80.5 million of senior unsecured notes due in 2023, which closed on February 26, 2013. The first quarterly interest payment on the notes will be made on April 15, 2013 to holders of record on April 1, 2013. Due to the success of the notes offering, MVC repaid its outstanding $50 million term loan on February 26, 2013.
The proceeds from the sale of Summit and the issuance of the unsecured notes will be used for corporate purposes, including, for example, investing in portfolio companies according to our investment objective and strategy, repurchasing MVC common stock pursuant to the share repurchase program adopted by the Company's Board of Directors, funding distributions, and/or funding the activities of our subsidiaries.
Also after the quarter-end, the Company realized the loss of $4.5 million on its Legacy investment, DPHI, Inc. and received a principal payment of $5.0 million from Custom Alloy Corporation.
The board of directors declared a dividend of $0.135 per share, or a total of $3.2 million distributed to shareholders for the first quarter of fiscal 2013. The dividend was paid on January 7, 2013 to shareholders of record on December 31, 2012 and will therefore be taxed at 2012 rates. This distribution represents the thirty-first consecutive quarterly dividend paid by the Company since implementing a dividend policy in July of 2005. The dividends issued under current management have resulted in $88.9 million in distributions to the Company's shareholders.
