  • GAAP Net Investment Income ("GAAP NII") was $7.1 million, or $0.10 per share, up 10% from the prior quarter, providing second quarter distribution coverage of 97%, up from 88% in the prior quarter.

  • Adjusted Net Investment Income1 ("Adjusted NII") was $6.0 million, or $0.08 per share, providing second quarter adjusted distribution coverage of 82%, consistent with the prior quarter.

  • Net Asset Value ("NAV") decreased to $335.4 million, down 3.3% from $346.9 million as of March 31, 2022; NAV per share decreased by 2.8% to $4.57 per share from $4.70 per share as of March 31, 2022, primarily driven by net unrealized losses of $(9.7) million during the quarter resulting from spread widening and general market declines.

  • The Company had strong gross deployments totaling $73.5 million during the second quarter, substantially all of which were investments in senior secured debt. During the second quarter, 11 new portfolio companies were added, bringing total portfolio companies at quarter-end to 100, up from 86 at the end of 2021 and 55 at the end of 2020. Gross repayments during the second quarter were $25.1 million.

  • The Company’s weighted-average portfolio yield as of June 30, 2022 increased to 9.1% based on total portfolio fair value, up from 8.4% as of March 31, 2022. The increase was largely driven by a rise in LIBOR and SOFR rates as well as slightly wider spreads on new originations during the quarter.

  • Net leverage was 0.64x as of June 30, 2022, and was up from 0.46x as of March 31, 2022, primarily driven by net investment deployments during the second quarter and a higher average debt balance quarter over quarter. Total available liquidity for deployment into portfolio company investments, including cash, was approximately $141 million, subject to leverage and borrowing base restrictions.

  • Under the existing share repurchase program, 420,083 shares were repurchased during the second quarter for approximately $1.6 million at an average price of $3.78 per share, including brokerage commissions.

  • As previously announced, the Company issued $92.0 million in aggregate principal amount of senior unsecured notes (the "Notes") in two tranches to qualified institutional investors in a private placement on June 9, 2022. The Company used the Notes proceeds as well as availability under the revolver to repay the Company’s $143.7 million of outstanding 5.00% unsecured convertible notes (the "2022 Convertible Notes") on their June 15, 2022 maturity date.

NEW YORK, August 03, 2022--(BUSINESS WIRE)--BlackRock Capital Investment Corporation (NASDAQ:BKCC) ("BCIC" or the "Company," "we," "us" or "our") announced today that its Board of Directors declared a quarterly distribution of $0.10 per share, payable on October 6, 2022 to stockholders of record at the close of business on September 15, 2022.

______________________________________

1Adjusted NII excludes the reversal of "hypothetical liquidation" basis capital gains incentive fee accrual required under GAAP of approximately $(1.1) million in the second quarter of 2022 and $(0.5) million in the first quarter of 2022, respectively (refer to Supplemental Information for further details).

"We delivered another quarter of strong results and solid origination activity, making further progress in our commitment to build a diversified portfolio with solid risk-adjusted returns," said James E. Keenan, Chairman and Interim CEO of the Company. "Drawing upon the power of the BlackRock platform, we added 11 new portfolio companies during the quarter, substantially all of which were in senior secured debt. We reached a milestone of 100 portfolio companies, representing significant progress from 47 at the end of 2019."

"We deployed nearly $74 million in the second quarter – primarily in first lien loans. Approximately 74% of our portfolio consists of first lien investments, consistent with the end of 2021 and up from 34% at the end of 2019. Likewise, non-core investments have continued to decline as a percentage of our portfolio from 16% at the end of 2019 down to just 4% as of the end of this quarter, demonstrating our continued focus on strengthening the portfolio’s asset quality," Mr. Keenan continued.

"In the third quarter so far, we are seeing a continuation of the level of deployment activity that we have seen in the first half of this year. We are also seeing pricing and structures more favorable to lenders in the private credit market. Amidst the macroeconomic backdrop of high inflation, rising interest rates and slowing consumer demand, we remain vigilant in new underwriting as well as in monitoring our existing portfolio. We believe that our portfolio is well positioned to withstand the impacts of an economic downcycle. During the second quarter, there were no new non-accruals or amendments that resulted in a payment deferral," Mr. Keenan continued.

"We are also pleased with our liability management during the quarter, having issued $92.0 million of aggregate principal amount of Notes, which were used along with the proceeds from our revolver to repay our $143.7 million of 2022 Convertible Notes at their maturity in June. As a result of these transactions and combined with our robust net deployments during the quarter, net leverage increased to 0.64x at June 30 from 0.46x at the end of the prior quarter. We maintain ample leverage capacity as we pursue disciplined portfolio growth that we expect will be accretive to NII and provide increased dividend coverage for our stockholders as we progress through the second half of the year," Mr. Keenan concluded.

Business Updates

  • Issuance of Senior Unsecured Debt: As previously disclosed, on April 21, 2022, the Company entered into a Note Purchase Agreement governing the issuance on June 9, 2022, of $92.0 million in aggregate principal amount of Notes in two tranches to qualified institutional investors in a private placement. The Company issued $35.0 million in aggregate principal amount of Notes with a fixed interest rate of 5.82%, and $57.0 million in aggregate principal amount of Notes bearing interest at a rate equal to SOFR plus 3.14%. The Notes have a maturity date of December 9, 2025. The Company may prepay the Notes at its option, subject to a prepayment premium, in an amount equal to 2% during the first year, 1% during the second year, 0.5% during the third year and none thereafter. In addition, the Company will be obligated to offer to repay the Notes at par if certain change in control events occur. The Notes are general unsecured obligations of the Company that rank pari passu with all outstanding and future unsecured unsubordinated indebtedness issued by the Company. The Company has entered into an interest rate swap agreement with a notional value of $35.0 million for the first three years of the Notes’ term, pursuant to which the Company will pay a floating rate of interest equal to SOFR and will receive a fixed rate of interest equal to 2.633%. For more information, please refer to the Form 8-K as filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") on April 22, 2022.

  • Repayment of 2022 Convertible Notes: On June 15, 2022, the Company’s 2022 Convertible Notes matured and the Company fully repaid the aggregate outstanding $143.7 million principal amount (post noteholder conversion) plus outstanding accrued interest. During the quarter, $30,000 of principal was converted to the Company’s common stock at the noteholders’ option pursuant to the terms of the 2022 Convertible Notes indenture.

  • Other Junior Capital Exposure: As of June 30, 2022, the Company’s other junior capital (including unsecured/subordinated debt and equity) exposure, excluding non-core assets, remained low at 5% of the portfolio, down from 6% at December 31, 2021, 21% at December 31, 2020, and 40% at December 31, 2019. During the second quarter, the Company received a partial repayment of $4.2 million on the unsecured debt of Gordon Brothers Finance Company ("GBFC"), a non-accrual investment.

  • Share Repurchase Program: On November 2, 2021, the Company’s Board of Directors authorized the Company to purchase up to a total of 8,000,000 shares, effective until the earlier of November 2, 2022, or such time that all the authorized shares have been repurchased. During the second quarter, 420,083 shares were repurchased for $1,586,451 at an average price of $3.78 per share, including brokerage commissions. As of June 30, 2022, 7,380,503 shares remained authorized for repurchase.

Second Quarter Financial Updates

  • GAAP NII was $7.1 million, or approximately $0.10 per share, for the three months ended June 30, 2022 (and Adjusted NII was $6.0 million or $0.08 per share). Relative to distributions declared of $0.10 per share, GAAP NII distribution coverage was 97%, up from 88% from the prior quarter. Adjusted NII distribution coverage was 82% for the second quarter, which is consistent with the prior quarter.

  • NAV decreased to $335.4 million at June 30, 2022, down 3.3% from $346.9 million at March 31, 2022; NAV per share decreased 2.8% to $4.57 per share from the prior quarter, primarily driven by net unrealized losses of $(9.7) million on the portfolio.

  • For the quarter ended June 30, 2022, we incurred management fees of $1.9 million, and incentive fees based on income of $0.1 million. The payment of the $0.1 million incentive fees based on income was deferred pursuant to our investment management agreement.

  • GAAP requires that the capital gains incentive fee accrual consider unrealized capital appreciation, as a capital gains incentive fee would be payable if such unrealized capital appreciation were realized on a "hypothetical liquidation" basis. Additionally, if the resulting calculation amount is negative or, if at the end of the annual measurement period (or every June 30) unrealized capital appreciation has not been realized, the accrual for GAAP may result in the reduction or reversal of incentive fees on capital gains previously accrued. For the quarter ended June 30, 2022, a capital gains incentive fees reduction of $(1.1) million was recorded on that basis (refer to Supplemental Information below for further details) and at June 30, 2022, the balance of accrued incentive fees on capital gains was zero. There can be no assurance that such unrealized capital appreciation will actually be realized during each annual measurement period, or that any accrued capital gains incentive fee will become payable under our investment management agreement or the Investment Advisers Act of 1940. Amounts ultimately paid under the investment management agreement will be consistent with the formula reflected in the agreement.

  • During the quarter ended June 30, 2022, there were no new non-accrual investments. As of June 30, 2022, there were three non-accrual investment positions, representing approximately 3.5% and 12.3% of total debt and preferred stock investments, at fair value and cost, respectively, as compared to three non-accrual investment positions of approximately 4.5% and 14.1% of total debt and preferred stock investments at fair value and cost, respectively, as of March 31, 2022. The weighted average internal investment rating of the portfolio at FMV at June 30, 2022 declined slightly to 1.27 as compared to 1.25 at March 31, 2022 and improved from 1.37 at June 30, 2021.

  • During the quarter ended June 30, 2022, net unrealized losses were $(9.7) million, primarily attributable to spread widening and general market declines that occurred during the quarter. There were no realized gains or losses during the quarter.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

  • At June 30, 2022, we had $22.4 million in cash and cash equivalents and $119.0 million of availability under our credit facility, subject to leverage restrictions, resulting in approximately $141.4 million of availability for deployment into portfolio company investments including current unfunded commitments. Committed but unfunded portfolio obligations at June 30, 2022 were $69.5 million, at par. We believe there is sufficient liquidity to meet all of the Company’s obligations and deploy new capital consistent with our strategy.

  • Net leverage, adjusted for available cash, receivables for investments sold, payables for investments purchased and unamortized debt issuance costs, was 0.64x at quarter-end, and our 240% asset coverage ratio provided the Company with additional debt capacity of $119.0 million under its asset coverage requirements, subject to borrowing capacity and borrowing base restrictions. Further, as of June 30, 2022, approximately 86% of our assets were invested in qualifying assets, exceeding the 70% regulatory requirement of a business development company.

  • For the second quarter of 2022, the Company declared a cash dividend of $0.10 per share, payable on October 6, 2022 to stockholders of record at the close of business on September 15, 2022.

(1)

Net investment income and per share amounts displayed above are net of the reversal for incentive fees on capital gains which is reflected on a hypothetical liquidation basis in accordance with GAAP for the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2022. Refer to Supplemental Information section below for further details and as adjusted figures that reflect that there were no incentive fees on capital gains realized and payable to the Advisor during such periods.

(2)

For the three and sixth month periods ended June 30, 2022, the impact of the hypothetical conversion of the 2022 Convertible Notes was antidilutive.

Supplemental Information

The Company reports its financial results on a generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP") basis; however, management believes that evaluating the Company’s ongoing operating results may be enhanced if investors have additional non-GAAP basis financial measures. Management reviews non-GAAP financial measures to assess ongoing operations and, for the reasons described below, considers them to be effective indicators, for both management and investors, of the Company’s financial performance over time. The Company’s management does not advocate that investors consider such non-GAAP financial measures in isolation from, or as a substitute for, financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP.

The Company records its liability for incentive fees based on capital gains by performing a hypothetical liquidation basis calculation at the end of each reporting period, as required by GAAP, which assumes that all unrealized capital appreciation and depreciation is realized as of the reporting date. It should be noted that incentive fees based on capital gains (if any) are not due and payable until the end of the annual measurement period, or every June 30. The incremental incentive fees disclosed for a given period are not necessarily indicative of actual full year results. Changes in the economic environment, financial markets and other parameters used in determining such estimates could cause actual results to differ and such differences could be material. There can be no assurance that unrealized capital appreciation and depreciation will be realized in the future, or that any accrued capital gains incentive fee will become payable. Incentive fee amounts on capital gains actually paid by the Company will specifically exclude consideration of unrealized capital appreciation, consistent with requirements under the Investment Advisers Act of 1940 and the Company’s investment management agreement. For a more detailed description of the Company’s incentive fees, please refer to the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2021, on file with the SEC.

1 Pre-Incentive Fee: Amounts are adjusted to remove all incentive fees. Such fees have been accrued (reversed) but are not due and payable at the reporting date.

2 As Adjusted: Amounts are adjusted to remove the GAAP accrual (reversal) for incentive fee based on capital gains, and to include only the incremental incentive fee based on income. Adjusted amounts reflect the fact that no incentive fee on capital gains was realized and payable to the Advisor during the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2022 and 2021, respectively. Under the Current Management Agreement, incentive fee based on income is calculated for each calendar quarter and may be paid on a quarterly basis if certain thresholds are met. Amounts reflected the Company’s ongoing operating results and reflect the Company’s financial performance over time.
