PORTFOLIO AND INVESTMENT ACTIVITY

“We are pleased with the strong performance of our portfolio over the last few quarters, despite challenging economic conditions,” said Arthur Penn, Chairman and CEO. “We believe that the combination of solid portfolio performance, several significant equity positions of high growth companies as well as continuing optimization of financing should bolster our NAV and Net Investment Income over time.”

As of September 30, 2020, 97% of the investments held by PSSL were first lien secured debt. For more information on how the COVID-19 pandemic has affected our business and results of operations, see our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2020, including “Item 7.

Our overall portfolio consisted of 95 companies with an average investment size of $11.4 million, had a weighted average yield on debt investments of 8.7%, and was invested 87% in first lien secured debt (including 11% in PSSL), 3% in second lien secured debt and 10% in preferred and common equity (including 5% in PSSL). As of September 30, 2019, 97% of the investments held by PSSL were first lien secured debt.

For the three months ended September 30, 2020, we invested $15.3 million in one new and nine existing portfolio companies with a weighted average yield on debt investments of 7.8%. Sales and repayments of investments for the same period totaled $49.7 million. This compares to the three months ended September 30, 2019, in which we invested $140.6 million in six new and 23 existing portfolio companies with a weighted average yield on debt investments of 8.5%. Sales and repayments of investments for the same period totaled $127.1 million.

PennantPark Senior Secured Loan Fund I LLC

As of September 30, 2020, PSSL’s portfolio totaled $393.0 million, consisted of 45 companies with an average investment size of $8.7 million and had a weighted average yield on debt investments of 6.8%.

PSSL’s sales and repayments of investments for the same period totaled $159.9 million.

RECENT DEVELOPMENTS

Subsequent to September 30, 2020, our portfolio company, Cano Health, LLC (ITC Rumba, LLC), entered into a business combination agreement with Jaws Acquisition Corp (“JWS”), a special purpose acquisition vehicle, and other parties, subject to certain closing conditions, with an expected closing late first quarter or early second quarter 2021. Based on the closing stock price of JWS on November 13, 2020, our $2.3 million common stock fair valuation as of September 30, 2020 would increase to an estimated $9.0 million, which includes a combination of cash and stock, assuming the transaction closes based on the agreed terms. This would represent a net asset value increase of $0.17 per share, as of November 13, 2020. Our shares are owned by a limited partnership controlled by the financial sponsor and are subject to customary lock up restrictions. As a result, the fair value on December 31, 2020, may likely include an illiquidity discount not in the public trading values indicated above. There can be no assurance that the implied value of our equity interest will be representative of the value ultimately realized on our equity investment.

RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

Set forth below are the results of operations for the years ended September 30, 2020 and 2019.

Investment Income

Investment income for the three months ended September 30, 2020 and 2019 was $21.8 million and $23.9 million, respectively, and was primarily attributable to $19.3 million and $22.1 million from first lien secured debt and $2.5 million and $1.8 million from other investments, respectively.

Investment income for the year ended September 30, 2020 was $95.5 million and was attributable to $86.8 million from first lien secured debt and $8.7 million from other investments. The increase in investment income over the prior year was primarily due to the growth of our portfolio, partially offset by a decline in LIBOR.

Investment income for the year ended September 30, 2019 was $92.9 million and was attributable to $84.0 million from first lien secured debt and $8.9 million from other investments.

Expenses

Expenses for the three months ended September 30, 2020 and 2019 totaled $10.3 million and $12.5 million, respectively. Base management fee totaled $2.8 million and $2.7 million, incentive fee totaled $2.1 million and $2.5 million, debt related interest and expenses totaled $5.5 million and $6.3 million, general and administrative expenses totaled $1.0 million and $1.0 million and provision for taxes totaled $0.1 million and zero, respectively, for the same periods.

Expenses for the years ended September 30, 2020 and 2019 totaled $52.1 million and $47.5 million, respectively. Base management fee for the same periods totaled $11.4 million and $10.2 million, incentive fee totaled $9.3 million and $6.2 million (including zero on realized gains and $(1.4) million on net unrealized gains accrued but not payable), debt related interest and expenses totaled $27.1 million and $27.1 million (including $4.5 million in Credit Facility amendment fees), general and administrative expenses totaled $3.9 million and $4.0 million and provision for taxes totaled $0.4 million and zero, respectively, for the same periods. The increase in expenses compared to the prior year was primarily due to the growth of our portfolio which resulted in higher Management Fees in the current year.

Net Investment Income

Net investment income totaled $10.3 million, or $0.27 per share, and $11.4 million, or $0.29 per share, for the three months ended September 30, 2020 and 2019, respectively.

Net investment income totaled $43.4 million, or $1.12 per share, and $45.5 million, or $1.17 per share, for the years ended September 30, 2020 and 2019, respectively. The decrease in net investment income compared to the prior year was primarily due to higher Management Fees due to growth of our portfolio, partially offset by higher investment income in the current year.

Net Realized Gains or Losses

Sales and repayments of investments for the three months ended September 30, 2020 and 2019 totaled $49.7 million and $127.1 million, respectively. Net realized losses totaled $4.7 million and $15.0 million for the same periods, respectively.

Sales and repayments of investments for the years ended September 30, 2020 and 2019 totaled $396.9 million and $527.3 million, respectively. Net realized losses totaled $12.7 million and $31.4 million for the same periods, respectively. The change in realized gains/losses was primarily due to changes in the market conditions of our investments and the values at which they were realized.

Unrealized Appreciation or Depreciation on Investments, the Credit Facility and the 2023 Notes

For the three months ended September 30, 2020 and 2019, we reported a net change in unrealized appreciation on investments of $19.9 million and $10.6 million, respectively. For the years ended September 30, 2020 and 2019, we reported net change in unrealized depreciation on investments of $26.5 million and $2.6 million, respectively. As of September 30, 2020 and 2019, our net unrealized depreciation on investments totaled $29.9 million and $3.5 million, respectively. The net change in unrealized appreciation/depreciation on our investments for the year ended September 30, 2020 compared to the prior year was primarily due to changes in the capital market conditions as well as the financial performance of certain portfolio companies primarily driven by the market disruption caused by the COVID-19 pandemic and the uncertainty surrounding its continued adverse economic impact. For more information on how the COVID-19 pandemic has affected our business and results of operations, see our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2020, including “Item 7. Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations – COVID-19 Developments” and “Item 1A. Risk Factors” therein.

For the three months ended September 30, 2020 and 2019, our Credit Facility and 2023 Notes had a net change in unrealized depreciation of $8.6 million and $0.4 million, respectively. For the years ended September 30, 2020 and 2019, our Credit Facility and the 2023 Notes had a net change in unrealized depreciation (appreciation) of $14.2 million and less than $(0.1) million, respectively. As of September 30, 2020 and 2019, our net unrealized depreciation on our Credit Facility and the 2023 Notes totaled $18.8 million and $4.7 million, respectively. The net change in unrealized depreciation for the year ended September 30, 2020 compared to the prior year was primarily due to changes in the capital markets.

Net Change in Net Assets Resulting from Operations

Net change in net assets resulting from operations totaled $17.0 million, or $0.44 per share, and $7.4 million, or $0.19 per share, for the three months ended September 30, 2020 and 2019, respectively.

Net change in net assets resulting from operations totaled $18.4 million, or $0.47 per share, and $11.4 million, or $0.29 per share, for the years ended September 30, 2020 and 2019, respectively. The decrease in net assets from operations for the year ended September 30, 2020 compared to the prior year was primarily due to depreciation of the portfolio primarily driven by the market disruption caused by the COVID-19 pandemic and the uncertainty surrounding its continued adverse economic impact.

LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES

Our liquidity and capital resources are derived primarily from proceeds of securities offerings, debt capital and cash flows from operations, including investment sales and repayments, and income earned. Our primary use of funds from operations includes investments in portfolio companies and payments of fees and other operating expenses we incur. We have used, and expect to continue to use, our debt capital, proceeds from the rotation of our portfolio and proceeds from public and private offerings of securities to finance our investment objectives. For more information on how the COVID-19 pandemic may impact our ability to comply with the covenants of the Credit Facility, see our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2020, including “Item 7. Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations – COVID-19 Developments” and “Item 1A. Risk Factors” therein.

The annualized weighted average cost of debt for the years ended September 30, 2020 and 2019, inclusive of the fee on the undrawn commitment on the Credit Facility, amendment costs and debt issuance costs, was 3.7% and 5.3%, respectively (excluding amendment and debt issuance costs, such amounts are 3.7% and 4.4%, respectively). As of September 30, 2020 and 2019, we had $211.4 million and $254.7 million of unused borrowing capacity under our Credit Facility, respectively, subject to leverage and borrowing base restrictions.

As of September 30, 2020 and 2019, PennantPark Floating Rate Funding I, LLC, or Funding I, had $308.6 million and $265.3 million of outstanding borrowings under the Credit Facility, respectively. The Credit Facility had a weighted average interest rate of 2.2% and 4.1%, exclusive of the fee on undrawn commitments, as of September 30, 2020 and 2019, respectively.

As of September 30, 2020 and 2019, we had cash equivalents of $57.5 million and $63.3 million, respectively, available for investing and general corporate purposes. We believe our liquidity and capital resources are sufficient to take advantage of market opportunities.

Our operating activities used cash of $4.9 million for the year ended September 30, 2020, and our financing activities used cash of $0.9 million for the same period. Our operating activities used cash primarily for our investment activities and our financing activities used cash primarily for paying down our Credit Facility and paying distributions to stockholders.

Our operating activities used cash of $121.4 million for the year ended September 30, 2019, and our financing activities provided cash of $111.7 million for the same period. Our operating activities used cash primarily for our investment activities and our financing activities provided cash primarily from the issuance of 2031 Asset-Backed Debt.

DISTRIBUTIONS

During both years ended September 30, 2020 and 2019, we declared distributions of $1.14 per share for total distributions of $44.2 million. We monitor available net investment income to determine if a return of capital for tax purposes may occur for the fiscal year. To the extent our taxable earnings fall below the total amount of our distributions for any given fiscal year, stockholders will be notified of the portion of those distributions deemed to be a tax return of capital. Tax characteristics of all distributions will be reported to stockholders subject to information reporting on Form 1099-DIV after the end of each calendar year and in our periodic reports filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission, or the SEC.

AVAILABLE INFORMATION

The Company makes available on its website its annual report on Form 10-K filed with the SEC and stockholders may find the report on its website at www.pennantpark.com.
