NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwire) -- 02/07/13 -- Prospect Capital Corporation (NASDAQ: PSEC) ("Company" or "Prospect") today announced financial results for our second fiscal quarter ended December 31, 2012.
For the December 2012 quarter, our net investment income ("NII") was $99.2 million or $0.51 per weighted average number of shares for the quarter. For the December 2011 quarter, our NII was $36.5 million or $0.33 per weighted average number of shares for the quarter. NII increased year-over-year by 172% and 55% on a dollars and per share basis, respectively.
For the six months ended December 2012, our NII was $173.2 million or $0.97 per weighted average number of shares for the period. For the six months ended December 31, 2011, our NII was $64.4 million or $0.59 per weighted average number of shares for the period.
Our net asset value per share on December 31, 2012 stood at $10.81 per share, an increase of $0.12 per share from December 31, 2011. Our debt to equity ratio stood at 47.8% (29.2% after subtraction of cash and cash equivalents) as of December 31, 2012. We estimate that our net investment income for the current March 2013 quarter will be $0.27 to $0.31 per share.
We have previously announced our upcoming cash distributions, our 55th, 56th, and 57th consecutive cash distributions to shareholders, as follows:
- $0.110050 per share for February 2013 (record date of February 28, 2013 and payment date of March 21, 2013);
- $0.110075 per share for March 2013 (record date of March 29, 2013 and payment date of April 18, 2013); and
- $0.110100 per share for April 2013 (record date of April 30, 2013 and payment date of May 23, 2013).
We have generated cumulative NII in excess of cumulative distributions to shareholders in the current fiscal year to date, in the prior fiscal year, and since Prospect's initial public offering nine years ago.
Our NII per weighted average share exceeded our cash distributions per share in each of the last five quarters. Depending on future distributions to shareholders, spillback dividend classifications, differences between NII and investment company taxable income, and other factors, we may retain significantly all or a portion of realizations and reinvest them in additional income-producing investments.
Since our IPO nine years ago through our April 2013 distribution, assuming our current share count for upcoming distributions, we will have distributed more than $11.05 per share to original shareholders and $675 million in cumulative distributions to all shareholders.

PORTFOLIO AND INVESTMENT ACTIVITY
Our origination efforts during the December 2012 quarter prioritized secured lending, with an emphasis on first-lien loans, although we also seek to close selected subordinated debt and equity investments. In addition to targeting investments senior in corporate capital structures with our new originations, we have also increased our new investments in third-party private equity sponsor-owned companies, which tend to have more third-party equity capital supporting our debt investments than in non-sponsor transactions, while still maintaining our flexibility to pursue attractive non-sponsor investments. With our scale team of more than 60 professionals, one of the largest dedicated middle-market credit groups in the industry, we believe we are well positioned to select in a disciplined manner a small number of investments out of thousands of investment opportunities sourced annually.
As a result of our continuing credit risk, yield, and other portfolio management initiatives, our portfolio's annualized current yield stood at 14.7% across all performing interest bearing investments as of December 31, 2012. Distributions from equity positions that we hold are not included in this yield calculation. In many of our portfolio companies, we hold equity positions, ranging from minority interests to majority stakes, which we expect over time to contribute to our investment returns.
At December 31, 2012, our portfolio consisted of 106 long-term investments with a fair value of $3.039 billion, a record total, compared to 85 long-term investments with a fair value of $2.094 billion at June 30, 2012, and compared to 72 long-term investments with a fair value of $1.463 billion at June 30, 2011.
During the December 2012 quarter, we completed 33 new and follow-on investments aggregating a record $772.1 million (approximately five times our origination dollar volume in the prior year December 2011 quarter), sold two investments, and received repayment on eleven other investments. Our repayments in the December 2012 quarter were $349.3 million, resulting in investments net of repayments of $422.9 million.

We are pleased with the overall credit quality of our portfolio, with many of our companies generating year-over-year and sequential growth in top-line revenues and bottom-line profits. None of our loans originated in over five years has gone on non-accrual status. The fair market value of our loan assets on non-accrual as a percentage of total assets stood at approximately 1.1% on December 31, 2012, down from 1.9% on June 30, 2012 and 3.5% on June 30, 2011.
During calendar year 2012, we received significant dividend and interest income from our ESHI investment. We expect our income from ESHI in calendar year 2013 to be significantly less than such income in calendar year 2012. We are looking to offset this decrease by utilizing existing liquidity and prudent leverage to finance our growth through new originations, including attractive yielding investments in the financial services and other sectors.
Because of the performance of several controlled positions in our portfolio, we have selectively monetized certain such companies and may monetize other positions if we identify attractive opportunities for exit. As such exits materialize, we expect to reinvest such proceeds into new income-producing opportunities. We are pleased with the performance of our controlled portfolio companies, and are actively exploring other new investment opportunities at attractive multiples of cash flow.
Our advanced investment pipeline aggregates more than $400 million of potential opportunities. These investments are primarily secured investments with double-digit coupons, sometimes coupled with equity upside through additional investments, diversified across multiple sectors.
Our diversified approach covers multiple business segments, including agented sponsor finance, club and syndicated finance, agented direct lending, structured credit, real estate yield, and controlled debt and equity investments. This diversity allows us to source a broad range and high volume of opportunities, then select in a disciplined bottoms-up manner the opportunities we deem to be the most attractive on a risk-adjusted basis.
LIQUIDITY AND FINANCIAL RESULTS
Our modestly leveraged balance sheet is a source of significant strength. Our debt to equity ratio stood at 47.8% (29.2% after subtraction of cash and cash equivalents) at December 31, 2012. Our equitized balance sheet also gives us the potential for future earnings upside as we prudently look to utilize and grow our existing revolving credit facility as well as potentially add additional secured or unsecured term facilities, made more attractive by our investment-grade ratings at corporate, revolving facility, and term debt levels.
On March 27, 2012, we renegotiated our credit facility and closed on an expanded five-year revolving credit facility (the "Facility") for Prospect Capital Funding LLC. As of December 31, 2012, our Facility size stood at $552.5 million with commitments from 17 total lenders. The Facility includes an accordion feature that allows aggregate commitments to be increased to $650 million without the need for re-approval from existing lenders or the rating agency.
As we make additional investments, we generate additional availability to the extent such investments are eligible to be placed into the borrowing base. The revolving period of the Facility extends through March 2015, with an additional two-year amortization period, with distributions allowed after the completion of the revolving period. Interest on borrowings under the Facility is one-month Libor plus 275 basis points, with no minimum Libor floor. The Facility continues to carry a high-investment-grade Moody's rating of Aa3.
We also have significantly diversified our counterparty risk. The current count of 17 institutional lenders in our Facility compares to five lenders at June 30, 2010, two lenders at June 30, 2009, and one lender at June 30, 2008.
In addition, our repeat issuance in the 5-year to 30-year unsecured term debt market has extended our liability duration, thereby better matching our assets and liabilities for balance sheet risk management.
On December 21, 2010, we issued $150.0 million in principal amount of 6.25% senior unsecured convertible notes, convertible at $11.35 per common share and due December 2015 ("2015 Notes").
On February 18, 2011, we issued $172.5 million in principal amount of 5.50% senior unsecured convertible notes, convertible at $12.76 per common share and due August 2016 ("2016 Notes"). In the March 2012 quarter, we repurchased $5.0 million of our 2016 Notes.
On April 16, 2012, we issued $130.0 million in principal amount of 5.375% senior unsecured convertible notes, convertible at $11.65 per common share and due October 2017 ("2017 Notes").
On August 14, 2012, we issued $200.0 million in principal amount of 5.75% senior unsecured convertible notes, convertible at $12.14 per common share and due March 2018 ("2018 Notes").
On December 21, 2012, we issued $200.0 million in principal amount of 5.875% senior unsecured convertible notes, convertible at $12.54 per common share and due January 2019 ("2019 Notes", and together with the 2015 Notes, 2016 Notes, 2017 Notes, and 2018 Notes, the "Convertible Notes"). In the past we have repurchased Convertible Notes when we deemed such purchases to be attractive for us.
On February 16, 2012, we entered into a Selling Agent Agreement for our issuance and sale from time to time of senior unsecured Prospect Capital InterNotes® (the "InterNotes"). Since initiating the program, we have issued $183.0 million of InterNotes. These notes were issued with interest rates ranging from 4.00% to 7.00% with a weighted average rate of 5.94%. These notes mature between June 15, 2019 and February 15, 2043.
On May 1, 2012, we issued $100.0 million in principal amount of 6.95% senior unsecured notes due November 2022 (the "2022 Baby Bond Notes", and together with our Convertible Notes and our InterNotes, the "Unsecured Notes"). The 2022 Baby Bond Notes trade on the New York Stock Exchange with ticker PRY and further demonstrate our diversified access to longer-dated funding.
The Unsecured Notes are general unsecured obligations of Prospect, with no financial covenants, no technical cross default provisions, and no payment cross default provisions with respect to our revolving credit facility. The Unsecured Notes have no restrictions related to the type and security of assets in which Prospect might invest. The issuance of these notes has allowed us to grow our investment program in calendar year 2012 and prudently commit to loans with maturities longer than our existing revolving credit facility maturity. These Unsecured Notes have an investment-grade S&P rating of BBB. As of December 31, 2012, Prospect held more than $2.89 billion of unencumbered assets on its balance sheet, benefiting holders of Unsecured Notes and Prospect shareholders.
Since June 30, 2012, we have completed five equity issuances at prices above net asset value per share.
On June 1, 2012, we entered into an equity distribution agreement, relating to at-the-market offerings from time to time, of up to 9.5 million shares of our common stock (the "ATM Program"). During the period from July 2, 2012 to July 12, 2012, we sold approximately 2.25 million shares of our common stock at an average price of $11.59 per share, and raised $26.0 million of gross proceeds.
On July 16, 2012, and subsequently through exercise of the underwriter option, we issued 24,150,000 shares of our common stock at $11.15 per share, raising $269.3 million of gross proceeds.
On September 10, 2012, we entered into an equity distribution agreement, relating to at-the-market offerings from time to time, of up to 9.75 million shares of our common stock. During the period from September 13, 2012 to September 28, 2012, we sold approximately 6.8 million shares of our common stock at an average price of $11.86 per share, and raised $80.2 million of gross proceeds, under the program. During the period from October 1, 2012 to October 9, 2012, we sold approximately 1.25 million shares of our common stock at an average price of $11.53 per share, and raised $14.4 million of gross proceeds.
On November 7, 2012, we issued 35,000,000 shares of our common stock to the public at an initial price of $11.10 per share to the public (or $10.96 per share net proceeds after commissions and expenses), raising $383.6 million of net proceeds.
On December 21, 2012, we entered into an equity distribution agreement, relating to at-the-market offerings from time to time, of up to 17.5 million shares of our common stock. During the period from January 7, 2013 to February 5, 2013, we sold approximately 10.2 million shares of our common stock at an average price of $11.25 per share, and raised $115.3 million of gross proceeds, under the program.
We currently have no borrowings under our Facility. Assuming sufficient assets are pledged to the Facility and that we are in compliance with all Facility terms, and taking into account our cash balances on hand, we have over $740 million of new investment capacity. Any principal repayments or other monetizations of our assets would further increase our new investment capacity. Any issuance of equity, increase in our Facility size, or issuance of other debt, including additional term debt, would also further increase our investment capacity.

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.

How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happens, where data lives and where the interface lies. For instance, it's a mix of architectural styles ...
