Apollo Investment Corporation (NASDAQ: AINV) or the "Company," or "Apollo Investment," today announced financial results for its third fiscal quarter ended December 31, 2012. The Company's net investment income was $0.21 per share for the quarter ended December 31, 2012 compared to $0.22 for the quarter ended September 30, 2012. The Company's net asset value ("NAV") was $8.14 per share as of December 31, 2012 down from $8.46 at September 30, 2012. The decline in NAV was driven primarily by losses on two investments partially offset by appreciation on the remainder of the portfolio.

Additionally, the Company also announced that its Board of Directors has declared a dividend of $0.20 per share for the fourth fiscal quarter of 2013, payable on April 4, 2013 to stockholders of record as of March 21, 2013. The specific tax characteristics of this dividend will be reported to stockholders on Form 1099 after the end of the calendar year.

Mr. James Zelter, Apollo Investment Corporation's Chief Executive Officer, said, "We had our third highest origination quarter and we continued to sell select investments given the strength in the credit markets in the December quarter. Since we announced a variety of strategic initiatives one year ago, we believe we have made great strides in accomplishing many of our objectives including the migration of our portfolio to a greater amount of secured debt, renewing our credit facility on favorable terms, diversifying our funding sources with the issuance of unsecured debt, and expanding our specialist sourcing capabilities. Looking ahead, we will continue to focus on diversifying into additional investment strategies with attractive risk adjusted returns."

As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate.

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...
