KCAP Financial, Inc. Announces Second Quarter 2017 Financial Results

NEW YORK, Aug. 02, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- KCAP Financial, Inc. (Nasdaq:KCAP) (the "Company" or "KCAP") announces its second quarter 2017 financial results.

Financial Highlights

Dayl Pearson, President and Chief Executive Officer of KCAP, said, "Following the close of the second quarter, we announced a joint venture and related transactions which resulted in, among other things, the redemption of approximately $148 million of our debt. As a result, these transactions give us the financial flexibility to expand our direct lending activities with attractive investment opportunities that generate strong free cash flow to fund distributions to shareholders. We are excited about the joint venture, which similar to other BDC's will invest in a portfolio of senior middle market loans, managed by one of the Company's wholly owned investment advisers. We look forward to increasing direct lending and identifying other opportunities and investments to advance our goal of shareholder value creation."

Operating Results

For the three months ended June 30, 2017, we reported total investment income of approximately $7.7 million as compared to approximately $9.6 million in the same period last year. Investment income from debt securities decreased to approximately $4.8 million from approximately $5.2 million in the second quarter of 2016. Investment income on securities issued by collateralized loan obligation funds in the second quarter of 2017 decreased to $2.8 million from $3.4 million in the second quarter of 2016. We received a return of capital distribution from our Asset Manager Affiliates (Trimaran Advisors and Katonah Debt Advisors) of $650,000 in the second quarter of 2017, as compared to a dividend distribution of $850,000 in the second quarter of 2016.

For the three months ended June 30, 2017, total expenses increased by approximately $580,000 as compared to the same period in 2016, primarily attributable to an increase in professional fees.
                                                                                                           
Net investment income for the second quarter of 2017 and 2016 was approximately $2.6 million and $5.1 million, or $0.07 and $0.14 per basic share, respectively. Net realized and unrealized gains on investments for the three months ended June 30, 2017 was approximately $20,000, compared to net realized and unrealized losses of approximately $2.0 million for the same period in 2016. 

Portfolio and Investment Activity

The fair value of our portfolio was approximately $355 million as of June 30, 2017. The composition of our investment portfolio at June 30, 2017 and December 31, 2016 at cost and fair value was as follows:

Liquidity and Capital Resources

At June 30, 2017, we had unrestricted cash and money market balances of approximately $19.7 million, total assets of approximately $363.9 million and stockholders' equity of approximately $189.6 million. Our net asset value per common share was $5.10. As of June 30, 2017, we had approximately $174 million (par value) of borrowings outstanding ($170 million net of discount and capitalized costs) with a weighted average interest rate of approximately 4.0%.

Subject to prevailing market conditions, we intend to grow our portfolio of assets by raising additional capital, including through the prudent use of leverage. As a result, we may seek to enter into new agreements with other lenders or into other financing arrangements as market conditions permit. Such financing arrangements may include a new secured and/or unsecured credit facility or the issuance of unsecured debt or preferred stock.

Distributions

Generally, we seek to fund distributions to shareholders from current distributable earnings, primarily from net interest and dividend income generated by our investment portfolio and any distributions from our Asset Manager Affiliates. However, a portion of distributions paid to shareholders may be a return of capital. We announced a regular quarterly distribution of $0.12 per share for the quarter ended June 30, 2017. The record date for this distribution was July 7, 2017 and the distribution was paid on July 27, 2017. An estimate of the tax attributes of distributions made on a quarterly basis may not be representative of the actual tax attributes of distributions for a full year. Tax characteristics of all distributions will be reported to stockholders on Form 1099-DIV after the end of the calendar year.

We have adopted a dividend reinvestment plan that provides for reinvestment of distributions in shares of our common stock, unless a stockholder elects to receive cash. As a result, if we declare a cash distribution, shareholders who have not "opted out" of our dividend reinvestment plan will have their cash distributions automatically reinvested in additional shares of our common stock, rather than receiving cash. For more information regarding our distributions, please refer to our 2016 annual financial report. Please contact your broker or other financial intermediary for more information regarding the dividend reinvestment plan.

Conference Call and Webcast
