KCAP Financial, Inc. Announces Second Quarter 2015 Financial Results

NEW YORK, Aug. 5, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- KCAP Financial, Inc. (Nasdaq:KCAP) announces its second quarter 2015 financial results.

Financial Highlights

Dayl Pearson, President and Chief Executive Officer of KCAP Financial, Inc., noted, "We are pleased with our second quarter results and the continued performance and credit quality of our portfolio. Despite a moderation in new deal activity compared to the first quarter, we maintain a healthy pipeline with good momentum as we proceed into the second half of 2015."

Operating Results

For the three months ended June 30, 2015, we reported total investment income of approximately $11.2 million as compared to approximately $9.8 million in the same period last year, an increase of 14%. Investment income from debt securities increased 14% to approximately $5.9 million from approximately $5.2 million in the second quarter 2014. Investment Income from investments in CLO fund securities in the second quarter of 2015 increased to $4.0 million from $3.1 million in 2014, an increase of 29%, and dividends from our Asset Manager Affiliates in the second quarter of 2015 decreased to approximately $1.2 million from approximately $1.4 million in 2014.

For the three months ended June 30, 2015, total expenses were relatively flat, with a slight increase of approximately $161,000 as compared to the same period in 2014.

Net investment income for the second quarter of 2015 and 2014 was approximately $5.8 million and $4.6 million, respectively, or $0.16 per basic share and $0.14 per basic share, respectively. Net realized and unrealized depreciation on investments for the three months ended June 30, 2015 was approximately $4.6 million as compared to approximately $7.7 million of unrealized appreciation for the same period in 2014.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

At June 30, 2015, we had unrestricted cash and money market balances of approximately $19.3 million, total assets of approximately $495.1 million and stockholders' equity of approximately $257.8 million. Our net asset value per common share was $6.96. As of June 30, 2015, we had $227.4 million (par value) of borrowings outstanding ($224.2 million net of discount) with a weighted average interest rate of approximately 4.45%.

Subject to prevailing market conditions, we intend to grow our portfolio of assets by raising additional capital, including through the prudent use of leverage available to us. 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 investment income generated by our investment portfolio. We announced a regular quarterly distribution of $0.21 per share for the quarter ended June 30, 2015. The record date for this distribution was July 6, 2015 and the distribution was paid on July 27, 2015. 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 2014 annual financial report. Please contact your broker or other financial intermediary for more information regarding the dividend reinvestment plan.

Supplemental Information: Analysis of Shareholder Distributions

On a supplemental basis, we are providing information relating to our shareholder distributions. The Company believes that taxable distributable income as reported in our financial statement footnotes is an important measure for investors. The Company may not distribute all of its taxable distributable income, or may over-distribute during any period.

The following table1 depicts the composition of shareholder distributions on a per share basis for the three and six months ended June 30, 2015 and 2014:

  Three Months Ended June 30, Six Months Ended June 30,
  20151 20141 20151 20141
Net investment income  $ 0.16  $ 0.14  $ 0.33  $ 0.27
Tax Accounting Difference on CLO Equity Investments 0.01 0.05 0.02 0.11
Other tax accounting differences -- 0.01 -- --
Taxable distributable income 0.17 0.20 0.36 0.39
Cash distributed to the Company by Asset Manager Affiliates in excess of their taxable earnings 0.03 0.05 0.06 0.10
Available for distribution2 0.20 0.25 0.43 0.49
Distributed  $ 0.21  $ 0.25  $ 0.42  $ 0.50
Difference $ (0.01) $ --   $ 0.01 $ (0.01)
         
1  Table may not foot due to rounding.
2  The "Available for distribution" financial measure is a non-GAAP financial measure that is calculated by including the cash distributed to the Company by the Asset Manager Affiliates in excess of their taxable earnings to the Company's taxable distributable income, which is the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure. In order to reconcile the "Available for distribution" financial measure to taxable distributable income per share in accordance with GAAP, the $0.03 and $0.06 per share of cash distributed to the Company by the Asset Manager Affiliates in excess of their taxable earnings is subtracted from the "Available for distribution" financial measure for the three and six months ended June 30, 2015, respectively. The Company's management believes that the presentation of the non-GAAP "Available for distribution" financial measure provides useful information to investors.
