Our overall portfolio consisted of 56 companies with an average investment size of $19.0 million, a weighted average yield on debt investments of 13.3%, and was invested 29% in senior secured loans, 20% in second lien secured debt, 39% in subordinated debt and 12% in preferred and common equity investments.

RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

Set forth below are the results of operations for the three months ended December 31, 2012 and 2011.

Investment Income
Investment income for the three months ended December 31, 2012 was $33.0 million and was primarily attributable to $8.8 million from senior secured loans, $6.4 million from second lien secured debt investments, $16.5 million from subordinated debt investments and $1.3 million from common equity investments. This compares to investment income for the three months ended December 31, 2011, which was $26.8 million, and was primarily attributable to $11.0 million from senior secured loans, $4.1 million from second lien secured debt investments and $11.7 million from subordinated debt investments. The increase in investment income compared with the same period in the prior year is due to the growth of our portfolio.

Expenses
Expenses for the three months ended December 31, 2012 totaled $14.8 million. Base management fees for the same period totaled $5.1 million, performance-based incentive fees totaled $4.5 million, our senior secured revolving credit facility, or the Credit Facility, and Small Business Administration, or SBA, debentures related interest and expenses totaled $3.1 million, general and administrative expenses and excise tax totaled $2.1 million. This compares to expenses for the three months ended December 31, 2011, which totaled $11.8 million. Base management fees for the same period totaled $4.0 million, performance-based incentive fees totaled $3.7 million, Credit Facility and SBA debentures related interest and expenses totaled $2.4 million, general and administrative expenses totaled $1.7 million. The increase in expenses is due to the growth of the portfolio as well as the higher cost of debt capital.

Net Investment Income
Net investment income totaled $18.2 million, or $0.28 per share, for the three months ended December 31, 2012, and $15.0 million, or $0.33 per share, for the three months ended December 31, 2011. The increase in net investment income over the prior period was due to the growth of our portfolio. The decrease in per share net investment income over the prior period was the result of issuance of shares.

Net Realized Gains or Losses
Sales and repayments of investments for the three months ended December 31, 2012 totaled $110.8 million and realized gains totaled $0.9 million. Sales and repayments of investments totaled $69.3 million and net realized gains totaled $8.0 million for the three months ended December 31, 2011.

Unrealized Appreciation or Depreciation on Investments and Credit Facility
For both the three months ended December 31, 2012 and 2011, we reported unrealized appreciation on investments of $10.0 million. As of December 31, 2012 and September 30, 2012, net unrealized depreciation on investments totaled $8.1 million and $18.1 million, respectively. The change in unrealized depreciation on investments from September 30, 2012 to December 31, 2012 was the result of the realization of unrealized gains upon exiting our investments and changes in market values.

For the three months ended December 31, 2012 and 2011 our Credit Facility value increased by $0.5 million and $1.1 million, respectively. The change from the prior period was primarily the result of the renewal of the Credit Facility. As of December 31, 2012 and September 30, 2012, net unrealized depreciation on our Credit Facility totaled zero and $0.5 million, respectively. Net change in unrealized appreciation on the Credit Facility over the prior year was due to changes in the leveraged finance markets.

Net Increase in Net Assets Resulting from Operations
Net increase in net assets resulting from operations totaled $28.5 million, or $0.44 per share, for the three months ended December 31, 2012. This compares to a net increase in net assets resulting from operations which totaled $15.8 million, or $0.34 per share, for the three months ended December 31, 2011. This increase in net assets resulting from operations compared to the prior period was due to the continued growth in net investment income as a result of growing our portfolio and appreciation of our investments.

LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES

Our liquidity and capital resources are derived primarily from proceeds of securities offerings, our Credit Facility, SBA debentures 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 Credit Facility, SBA debentures, proceeds from the rotation of our portfolio and proceeds from public and private offerings of securities to finance our investment objectives.

As of December 31, 2012 and September 30, 2012, we had $211.5 million and $145.0 million (including a temporary draw of $35.5 million), respectively, in outstanding borrowings under the Credit Facility, with a weighted average interest rate of 3.00% and 3.49%, respectively, exclusive of the fee on undrawn commitments of 0.50%.

As of December 31, 2012 and September 30, 2012, $150.0 million in SBA debt commitments were fully drawn with a weighted average interest rate of 3.70%, exclusive of the 3.43% in upfront fees (4.04% after upfront fees). The SBA debentures upfront fees of 3.43% consist of a commitment fee of 1.00% and an issuance discount of 2.43%. Both fees are being amortized over the lives of the loans.

Our operating activities used cash of $35.8 million for the three months ended December 31, 2012, primarily for net purchases of investments. Our financing activities provided cash of $59.5 million for the same period, primarily from net borrowings under our Credit Facility and proceeds from our capital stock offering.

Our operating activities provided cash of $31.7 million for the three months ended December 31, 2011, primarily from net proceeds from the disposition of investments. Our financing activities used cash of $61.2 million for the same period, primarily from net repayments under our Credit Facility.

DISTRIBUTIONS

During the three months ended December 31, 2012 and 2011, we declared dividends of $0.28 and $0.28 per share, respectively, for total dividends of $18.6 million and $12.8 million, respectively. We monitor available net investment income to determine if a return of capital for taxation 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, a portion of those distributions may be deemed to be a return of capital to our common stockholders. Tax characteristics of all distributions will be reported to stockholders on Form 1099-DIV after the end of the calendar year and in our periodic reports filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

RECENT DEVELOPMENTS

On January 22, 2013, we issued $67.5 million in aggregate principal amount of 6.25% senior notes due 2025 for net proceeds of $65.2 million (the "2025 Notes") after underwriting discounts and offering costs. Interest on the 2025 Notes is paid quarterly on February 1, May 1, August 1 and November 1, at a rate of 6.25% per year, commencing on May 1, 2013. The 2025 Notes mature on February 1, 2025. We may redeem the Notes in whole or in part at any time or from time to time on or after February 1, 2016. The 2025 Notes are general, unsecured obligations and will rank equal in right of payment with all of our existing and future senior unsecured indebtedness. The proceeds from the sale of the 2025 Notes are being used to repay indebtedness owed under the Credit Facility, to invest in new or existing portfolio companies, or for other general corporate or strategic purposes.

Effective January 24, 2013, our wholly-owned subsidiary, PennantPark SBIC II LP, received a license from the SBA to operate as a small business investment company ("SBIC") under the Small Business Investment Act of 1958, as amended. As an SBIC, PennantPark SBIC II LP will be subject to a variety of regulations and oversight by the SBA concerning, among other things, the size and nature of the companies in which it may invest as well as the structure of those investments.

Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using the URL as a basic building block, we open this up and get the same resilience that the web enjoys.
The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp. When working with time series data there are a few core principles that everyone should consider, especially across datasets where time is the common boundary. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, discussed single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series data. By focusing on enterprise applications and the data center, he will use OpenTSDB as an example t...
P2P RTC will impact the landscape of communications, shifting from traditional telephony style communications models to OTT (Over-The-Top) cloud assisted & PaaS (Platform as a Service) communication services. The P2P shift will impact many areas of our lives, from mobile communication, human interactive web services, RTC and telephony infrastructure, user federation, security and privacy implications, business costs, and scalability. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Robin Raymond, Chief Architect at Hookflash, will walk through the shifting landscape of traditional telephone and voice services ...
The Domain Name Service (DNS) is one of the most important components in networking infrastructure, enabling users and services to access applications by translating URLs (names) into IP addresses (numbers). Because every icon and URL and all embedded content on a website requires a DNS lookup loading complex sites necessitates hundreds of DNS queries. In addition, as more internet-enabled ‘Things' get connected, people will rely on DNS to name and find their fridges, toasters and toilets. According to a recent IDG Research Services Survey this rate of traffic will only grow. What's driving t...
Enthusiasm for the Internet of Things has reached an all-time high. In 2013 alone, venture capitalists spent more than $1 billion dollars investing in the IoT space. With "smart" appliances and devices, IoT covers wearable smart devices, cloud services to hardware companies. Nest, a Google company, detects temperatures inside homes and automatically adjusts it by tracking its user's habit. These technologies are quickly developing and with it come challenges such as bridging infrastructure gaps, abiding by privacy concerns and making the concept a reality. These challenges can't be addressed w...
Explosive growth in connected devices. Enormous amounts of data for collection and analysis. Critical use of data for split-second decision making and actionable information. All three are factors in making the Internet of Things a reality. Yet, any one factor would have an IT organization pondering its infrastructure strategy. How should your organization enhance its IT framework to enable an Internet of Things implementation? In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, James Kirkland, Chief Architect for the Internet of Things and Intelligent Systems at Red Hat, described how to revolutioniz...
Bit6 today issued a challenge to the technology community implementing Web Real Time Communication (WebRTC). To leap beyond WebRTC’s significant limitations and fully leverage its underlying value to accelerate innovation, application developers need to consider the entire communications ecosystem.
The definition of IoT is not new, in fact it’s been around for over a decade. What has changed is the public's awareness that the technology we use on a daily basis has caught up on the vision of an always on, always connected world. If you look into the details of what comprises the IoT, you’ll see that it includes everything from cloud computing, Big Data analytics, “Things,” Web communication, applications, network, storage, etc. It is essentially including everything connected online from hardware to software, or as we like to say, it’s an Internet of many different things. The difference ...

The major cloud platforms defy a simple, side-by-side analysis. Each of the major IaaS public-cloud platforms offers their own unique strengths and functionality. Options for on-site private cloud are diverse as well, and must be designed and deployed while taking existing legacy architecture and infrastructure into account. Then the reality is that most enterprises are embarking on a hybrid cloud strategy and programs. In this Power Panel at 15th Cloud Expo (http://www.CloudComputingExpo.com), moderated by Ashar Baig, Research Director, Cloud, at Gigaom Research, Nate Gordon, Director of T...

The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless. The Internet of Things (IoT) is nothing if not an endless proliferation of details. It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, and physical persons. In the IoT vision, every new "thing" - sensor, actuator, data source, data con...
