Prospect Capital Announces 48% Increase in Net Investment Income per Share and $0.47 per Share Increase in Net Asset Value for June 2012 Fiscal Year, Including $0.51 of Net Investment Income per Share in June 2012 Quarter

Marketwired

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire -08/22/12)- Prospect Capital Corporation (PSEC) ("Company" or "Prospect") today announced financial results for our fourth fiscal quarter and fiscal year ended June 30, 2012.

For the June 2012 fiscal year, our net investment income ("NII") was $186.7 million, an increase of 98% from the prior year on a dollars basis. On a weighted average share basis, NII increased from $1.10 for the June 2011 fiscal year to $1.63 for the June 2012 fiscal year, an increase of 48%.

Our net asset value per share on June 30, 2012 stood at $10.83 per share, an increase of $0.47 per share from June 30, 2011, and an increase of $0.01 per share from March 31, 2012.

For the June 2012 quarter, our NII was $64.2 million or $0.51 per weighted average number of shares for the quarter, representing increases of 113% and 66% year-over-year, respectively.

For the June 2011 quarter, our NII was $30.2 million or $0.31 per weighted average number of shares for the quarter.

We are targeting continued growth in NII per share as we utilize prudent leverage to finance our growth through new originations, given our debt to equity ratio stood at less than 44% (and less than 36% after subtraction of cash and equivalents) as of June 30, 2012. We estimate that our net investment income for the current September 2012 quarter will be $0.41 to $0.46 per share.

We have previously announced our upcoming cash distributions, our 49th, 50th, and 51st consecutive cash distributions to shareholders, as follows:

  • $0.101600 per share for August 2012 (record date of August 31, 2012 and payment date of September 21, 2012);

  • $0.101625 per share for September 2012 (record date of September 28, 2012 and payment date of October 24, 2012); and

  • $0.101650 per share for October 2012 (record date of October 31, 2012 and payment date of November 22, 2012).

We have generated cumulative NII in excess of cumulative distributions to shareholders for both (i) the current August 2012 tax year ($173.0 million of NII from September 1, 2011 through June 30, 2012, compared to shareholder distributions of $119.2 million during the same period) and (ii) since Prospect's initial public offering eight years ago.

Our NII per weighted average share exceeded our cash distributions per share in each of the June 2012 quarter, March 2012 quarter, December 2011 quarter, and June 2012 fiscal year. Depending on future distributions to shareholders, spillback dividend classifications, differences between NII and investment company taxable income, and other factors, we may retain significantly all or a portion of recent realizations and reinvest them in additional income-producing investments.

Based on past distributions and assuming its current share count for upcoming distributions, Prospect since inception through its October 2012 distribution will have distributed more than $10.40 per share to original shareholders and $530 million in cumulative distributions to all shareholders.

PORTFOLIO AND INVESTMENT ACTIVITY

Our origination efforts during the June 2012 quarter and current September 2012 quarter continue to prioritize secured lending, with an emphasis on first-lien loans, although we also seek to close selected subordinated debt and equity investments. In addition to targeting investments senior in corporate capital structures with our new originations, we have also increased our new investments in third-party private equity sponsor-owned companies, which tend to have more third-party equity capital supporting our debt investments than in non-sponsor transactions, while still maintaining flexibility to pursue attractive non-sponsor investments. With our scale team of more than 50 professionals, one of the largest dedicated middle-market credit groups in the industry, we believe we are well positioned to select in a disciplined manner a small number of investments out of thousands of investment opportunities sourced per annum.

As a result of these credit risk, yield, and other management initiatives, our portfolio's annualized current yield stood at 13.6% across all long-term debt as of June 30, 2012. Distributions from equity positions that we hold are not included in this yield calculation. In many of our portfolio companies, we hold equity positions, ranging from minority interests to majority stakes, which we expect over time to contribute to our investment returns.

In the June 2012 fiscal year, we completed new and follow-on investments aggregating a record $1.12 billion, an increase from $953.3 million in the June 2011 fiscal year. Our repayments in the June 2012 fiscal year were $501.0 million, compared to $285.9 million in the June 2011 fiscal year. As a result, our investments net of repayments were $619.7 million in the June 2012 fiscal year, compared to $667.5 million in the June 2011 fiscal year.

At June 30, 2012, our portfolio consisted of 82 long-term investments with a fair value of $2.094 billion, a record total, compared to 72 long-term investments with a fair value of $1.463 billion at June 30, 2011, and compared to 58 long-term investments with a fair value of $748.5 million at June 30, 2010.

During the June 2012 quarter, we completed new and follow-on investments aggregating a record $573.3 million, sold two investments, and received repayment on three other investments. Our repayments in the June 2012 quarter totaled $146.3 million, resulting in $427.0 million of investments net of repayments.

We are pleased with the overall credit quality of our portfolio, with many of our companies generating year-over-year and sequential growth in top-line revenues and bottom-line profits. None of our loans originated in nearly five years have gone on non-accrual status. The fair market value of our loan assets on non-accrual as a percentage of total assets stood at approximately 1.9% on June 30, 2012, down from 2.2% on March 31, 2012 and 3.5% on June 30, 2011.

Because of the performance of several controlled positions in our portfolio, we have selectively monetized certain such companies and may monetize other positions if we identify attractive opportunities for exit. As such exits materialize, we expect to reinvest such proceeds into new income-producing opportunities. We are pleased with the performance of our controlled portfolio companies, and are actively exploring other new investment opportunities at attractive multiples of cash flow.

Our advanced investment pipeline aggregates more than $600 million of potential opportunities. These investments are primarily secured investments with double-digit coupons, sometimes coupled with equity upside through additional investments, and diversified across multiple sectors.

LIQUIDITY AND FINANCIAL RESULTS

Our modestly leveraged balance sheet is a source of significant strength. Our debt to equity ratio stood at less than 44% (and less than 36% after subtraction of cash and equivalents) at June 30, 2012. Our equitized balance sheet also gives us the potential for future earnings upside as we prudently look to utilize and grow our existing revolving credit facility as well as potentially add additional secured or unsecured term facilities, made more attractive by our investment-grade ratings at corporate, revolving facility, and term debt levels.

On March 27, 2012, we renegotiated our credit facility and closed on an expanded five-year revolving credit facility (the "Facility") for Prospect Capital Funding LLC. As of March 31, 2012, ten original lenders had extended commitments of $410 million under the Facility. We have since increased the Facility size to $507.5 million with commitments from five additional lenders and increased commitments from existing lenders, thereby bringing the total number of lenders to 15. The Facility includes an accordion feature which allows aggregate commitments to be increased to up to $650 million without the need for re-approval from the existing lenders or the rating agency.

As we make additional investments, we generate additional availability to the extent such investments are eligible to be placed into the borrowing base. The revolving period of the Facility extends through March 2015, with an additional two-year amortization period, with distributions allowed after the completion of the revolving period. Interest on borrowings under the Facility is one-month Libor plus 275 basis points, with no minimum Libor floor. The Facility continues to carry a high-investment-grade Moody's rating of Aa3.

We also have significantly diversified our counterparty risk. We currently have 15 institutional lenders in our Facility, up from five lenders at June 30, 2010, two lenders at June 30, 2009, and one lender at June 30, 2008.

In addition, our repeat issuance in the past year in the five-year, seven-year, ten-year, and greater unsecured term debt market has extended our liability duration, thereby better matching our assets and liabilities for balance sheet risk management.

On December 21, 2010, we issued $150.0 million in principal amount of 6.25% senior unsecured convertible notes, convertible at $11.35 per common share and due December 2015 ("2015 Notes").

On February 18, 2011, we issued $172.5 million in principal amount of 5.50% senior unsecured convertible notes, convertible at $12.76 per common share and due August 2016 ("2016 Notes"). In the March 2012 quarter, we repurchased $5.0 million of our 2016 Notes.

On April 16, 2012, we issued $130.0 million in principal amount of 5.375% senior unsecured convertible notes, convertible at $11.65 per common share and due October 2017 ("2017 Notes").

On August 14, 2012, we issued $200.0 million in principal amount of 5.75% senior unsecured convertible notes, convertible at $12.14 per common share and due March 2018 ("2018 Notes," and together with the 2015 Notes, 2016 Notes, and 2017 Notes, the "Convertible Notes").

On February 16, 2012, we entered into a Selling Agent Agreement (the "Selling Agent Agreement") with Incapital LLC, as purchasing agent for our issuance and sale from time to time of senior unsecured Prospect Capital InterNotes® (the "InterNotes").

During the June 2012 fiscal year, we issued $20.6 million in principal amount of InterNotes. These notes were issued with interest rates ranging from 6.50% to 7.00% with an average rate of 6.78%. These notes mature between June 15, 2019 and June 15, 2022. In the current September 2012 quarter, we have issued an additional $38.5 million in principal amount of InterNotes. The average interest rate for the $59.1 million total InterNotes issued to date is 6.41%.

On May 1, 2012, we issued $100.0 million in principal amount of 6.95% senior unsecured notes due November 2022 (the "2022 Baby Bond Notes," and together with our Convertible Notes and our InterNotes, the "Unsecured Notes"). The 2022 Baby Bond Notes trade on the New York Stock Exchange with ticker PRY and further demonstrate our diversified access to longer-dated funding.

The Unsecured Notes are general unsecured obligations of Prospect, with no financial covenants, no technical cross default provisions, and no payment cross default provisions with respect to our revolving credit facility. The Unsecured Notes have no restrictions related to the type and security of assets in which Prospect might invest. The issuance of these notes has allowed us to grow our investment program in calendar year 2012 and commit to loans with maturities longer than our existing revolving credit facility maturity. These Unsecured Notes have an investment-grade S&P rating of BBB. As of June 30, 2012, Prospect held more than $1.46 billion of unencumbered assets on its balance sheet to benefit holders of Unsecured Notes and Prospect shareholders.

Since March 31, 2012, we have completed two equity issuances at prices above net asset value per share.

On June 1, 2012, we and KeyBanc Capital Markets Inc. entered into an equity distribution agreement relating to sales by us through KeyBanc Capital Markets, by means of at-the-market offerings from time to time, of up to 9,500,000 shares of our common stock. During the period from June 7, 2012 to July 9, 2012, we sold 5,199,764 shares of our common stock at an average price of $11.38 per share, and raised $59.2 million of gross proceeds.

On July 16, 2012 and subsequently through exercise of the underwriter option, we issued 24,150,000 shares of our common stock at $11.15 per share, raising $269.3 million of gross proceeds.

We currently have no borrowings under our Facility. Assuming sufficient assets are pledged to the Facility and that we are in compliance with all Facility terms, and taking into account our cash balances on hand, we have over $600 million of new investment capacity. Any principal repayments or other monetizations of our assets would further increase our new investment capacity. Any issuance of equity, increase in our Facility size, or issuance of other debt, including additional term debt, would also further increase our investment capacity.
