RESULTS OF OPERATIONS Set forth below are the results of operations for the three and six months ended March 31, 2021 and 2020. Investment Income Investment income for the three and six months ended March 31, 2021 was $19.4 million and $40.2 million, respectively, which was attributable to $16.6 million and $35.3 million from first lien secured debt and $2.9 million and $4.9 million from other investments, respectively. This compares to investment income for the three and six months ended March 31, 2020, which was $26.3 million and $51.0 million, respectively, and was attributable to $24.1 million and $46.5 million from first lien secured debt and $2.2 million and $4.5 million from other investments, respectively. The decrease in investment income compared to the same periods in the prior year was primarily due to a decrease in the size of our portfolio and the London Interbank Offered Rate.. Expenses Expenses for the three and six months ended March 31, 2021 totaled $9.5 million and $20.1 million, respectively. Base management fee for the same periods totaled $2.6 million and $5.3 million, incentive fee totaled $1.3 million and $3.1 million, debt related interest and expenses totaled $4.8 million and $10.1 million and general and administrative expenses totaled $0.7 million and $1.4 million, respectively. This compares to expenses for the three and six months ended March 31, 2020 which totaled $14.6 million and $28.1 million, respectively. Base management fee for the same periods totaled $2.9 million and $5.8 million, incentive fee totaled $2.9 million and $5.3 million, debt related interest and expenses totaled $7.6 million and $14.9 million and general and administrative expenses totaled $1.0 million and $1.9 million, respectively. The decrease in expenses for the three and six months ended March 31, 2021 compared to the same periods in the prior year was primarily due to a decrease in management fees, incentive fees and debt related interest and expenses. Net Investment Income Net investment income totaled $9.9 million and $20.0 million, or $0.26 and $0.52 per share, for the three and six months ended March 31, 2021, respectively. Net investment income totaled $11.7 million and $22.9 million, or $0.30 and $0.59 per share, for the three and six months ended March 31, 2020, respectively. Net Realized Gains or Losses Sales and repayments of investments for the three and six months ended March 31, 2021 totaled $172.1 million and $281.7 million, respectively, and net realized gains (losses) totaled $0.5 million and ($2.3) million, respectively. Sales and repayments of investments for the three and six months ended March 31, 2020 totaled $99.4 million and $243.1 million, respectively, and net realized losses totaled $1.6 million and $0.6 million, 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 and six months ended March 31, 2021, we reported net change in unrealized appreciation on investments of $11.8 million and $34.6 million, respectively. For the three and six months ended March 31, 2020, we reported net change in unrealized depreciation on investments of $64.8 million and $68.3 million, respectively. As of March 31, 2021 and September 30, 2020, our net unrealized depreciation on investments totaled $4.7 million and $29.9 million, respectively. The net change in unrealized appreciation on our investments compared to the same period in the prior year was primarily due to unrealized gains in our equity co-investment program, including ITC Rumba, LLC (Cano Health, LLC). For the three and six months ended March 31, 2021, the Credit Facility and the 2023 Notes had a net change in unrealized appreciation of $10.5 million and $14.5 million, respectively. For the three and six months ended March 31, 2020, the Credit Facility and the 2023 Notes had a net change in unrealized depreciation of $33.5 million and $34.9 million, respectively. As of March 31, 2021 and September 30, 2020, the net unrealized depreciation on the Credit Facility and the 2023 Notes totaled $4.3 million and $18.8 million, respectively. The net change in net unrealized depreciation compared to the same period in the prior year was primarily due to changes in the capital markets. Net Change in Net Assets Resulting from Operations Net increase in net assets resulting from operations totaled $11.7 million and $37.8 million, or $0.30 and $0.98 per share, respectively, for the three and six months ended March 31, 2021. This compares to a net decrease in net assets resulting from operations of $21.1 million and $11.1 million, or $0.54 and $0.29 per share, respectively, for the three and six months ended March 31, 2020. The increase in the net change in net assets from operations for the three and six months ended March 31, 2021 compared to the same periods in the prior year was primarily due to unrealized gains in our equity co-investment program, including ITC Rumba, LLC (Cano Health, LLC). 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 Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended March 31, 2021, including “Item 7. Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations – COVID-19 Developments”. The annualized weighted average cost of debt for the six months ended March 31, 2021 and 2020, inclusive of the fee on the undrawn commitment on the Credit Facility, amendment costs and debt issuance costs, was 3.4% and 4.1%, respectively. As of March 31, 2021 and September 30, 2020, we had $253.1 million and $211.4 million of unused borrowing capacity under the Credit Facility, respectively, subject to leverage and borrowing base restrictions. As of March 31, 2021 and September 30, 2020, our wholly owned subsidiary, PennantPark Floating Rate Funding I, LLC, borrowed $146.9 million and $308.6 million under the Credit Facility, respectively. The Credit Facility had a weighted average interest rate of 2.2% and 2.2%, exclusive of the fee on undrawn commitments as of March 31, 2021 and September 30, 2020, respectively. As of March 31, 2021 and September 30, 2020, we had cash equivalents of $66.6 million and $57.5 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 provided cash of $117.8 million for the six months ended March 31, 2021, and our financing activities used cash of $107.7 million for the same period. Our operating activities provided cash primarily from our investment activities and our financing activities used cash primarily to pay down our Credit Facility, partially offset by the 2026 Notes issuance. Our operating activities used cash of $158.9 million for the six months ended March 31, 2020, and our financing activities provided cash of $125.9 million for the same period. Our operating activities used cash primarily for our investment activities and our financing activities provided cash primarily from draws on our Credit Facility, partially offset by distributions paid to stockholders. DISTRIBUTIONS During the three and six months ended March 31, 2021 and 2020, we declared distributions of $0.285 and $0.57 per share, respectively, for total distributions of $11.1 and $22.1 million, respectively. 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.
