As of December 31, 2012, our portfolio totaled $180.8 million and consisted of $157.2 million of senior secured loans, $10.5 million of second lien secured debt and $13.1 million of subordinated debt, preferred and common equity investments.

Overall, the portfolio had unrealized depreciation of $0.1 million. Our overall portfolio consisted of 64 companies with an average investment size of $2.8 million, a weighted average yield on debt investments of 8.9%, and was invested 87% in senior secured loans, 6% in second lien secured debt and 7% in subordinated debt, preferred and common equity investments.

Our debt portfolio consisted of 85% floating rate investments (including 81% with a LIBOR, or prime floor) and 15% fixed-rate 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 $4.0 million and was attributable to $3.3 million from senior secured loans, $0.3 million from second lien secured debt investments and $0.4 million from subordinated debt investments. This compares to investment income for the three months ended December 31, 2011, which was $2.5 million, and was attributable to $2.0 million from senior secured loan investments, $0.3 million from second lien secured debt investments and $0.2 million from subordinated debt investments. The increase in investment income is due to a larger portfolio which was funded through both our senior secured revolving credit facility, or the Credit Facility, and rotation out of lower yielding assets.

Expenses

Expenses for the three months ended December 31, 2012 totaled $1.9 million. Base management fees for the same period totaled $0.5 million, performance-based incentive fees totaled $0.4 million, Credit Facility expenses totaled $0.5 million, general and administrative expenses totaled $0.5 million and excise taxes were less than $0.1 million. This compares to expenses for the three months ended December 31, 2011, which totaled $1.1 million. Base management fees for the same period totaled $0.3 million, performance-based incentive fees totaled zero, or the Credit Facility expenses totaled $0.3 million and general and administrative expenses totaled $0.5 million. The increase in management fees, incentive fees and Credit Facility expenses is due to the growth of our portfolio.

Net Investment Income

Net investment income totaled $2.1 million, or $0.30 per share, for the three months ended December 31, 2012, and $1.4 million, or $0.20 per share, for the three months ended December 31, 2011. The increase in net investment income is due to a larger portfolio and higher yielding assets offset by higher Credit Facility expenses and management and incentive fees.

Net Realized Gains or Losses

Sales and repayments of investments for the three months ended December 31, 2012 totaled $30.3 million and realized gains totaled $0.4 million. Sales and repayments of long-term investments totaled $22.3 million and realized gains totaled $0.3 million for the three months ended December 31, 2011. The increase in realized gains was driven by a higher volume of repayments than the comparable period.

Unrealized Appreciation or Depreciation on Investments and Credit Facility

For the three months ended December 31, 2012 and 2011, we reported unrealized (depreciation) appreciation on investments of $(0.4) million and $1.1 million, respectively. As of December 31, 2012 and September 30, 2012, net unrealized (depreciation) appreciation on investments totaled $(0.1) million and $0.3 million, respectively. The change in the three month period compared to last year is the result of the reversal 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 had a change in unrealized (appreciation) depreciation of $(0.4) million and $0.4 million, respectively. As of December 31, 2012 and September 30, 2012, net unrealized (appreciation) depreciation on our Credit Facility totaled zero and $0.4 million, respectively. The change in the three month period compared to last 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 $1.8 million, or $0.26 per share, for the three months ended December 31, 2012. This compares to a net increase in net assets resulting from operations which totaled $3.1 million, or $0.45 per share, for the three months ended December 31, 2011. The decrease in net assets resulting from operations compared to last year is due to changes in fair value of our investments due to changes in the leveraged finance markets.

LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES

Our liquidity and capital resources are derived from proceeds of our initial public offering, our Credit Facility, 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, 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, there were $85.8 million and $75.5 million of outstanding borrowings under the Credit Facility, respectively, with an interest rate of 2.47%, in each case excluding the 0.375% undrawn commitment fee.

Our operating activities used cash of $8.5 million for the three months ended December 31, 2012, and our financing activities provided net cash proceeds of $8.6 million for the same period. Our operating activities used cash primarily for net investing that was financed by net draws under the Credit Facility.

Our operating activities used cash of $11.3 million for the three months ended December 31, 2011, and our financing activities provided net cash proceeds of $9.0 million for the same period. Our operating activities used cash primarily for net investing that was financed by net draws under the Credit Facility.

DISTRIBUTIONS

During the three months ended December 31, 2012 and 2011, we declared distributions of approximately $0.25 and $0.21 per share, respectively, for total distributions of $1.7 million and $1.4 million, respectively. We monitor available net investment income to determine if a tax return of capital 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 tax 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, or the SEC.

RECENT DEVELOPMENTS

Under terms agreed among us, PennantPark Investment Advisers, LLC, or the Investment Adviser, and underwriters of our initial public offering, the Investment Adviser paid 2% of the underwriters' sales load, or approximately $2.1 million in the aggregate, on our behalf. We agreed to repay such amount to the Investment Adviser upon its achievement of a benchmark return over four consecutive quarters, and the Investment Adviser agreed to use such amount to purchase shares of our common stock over a six-month period following such repayment. We met the conditions for repayment of the Investment Adviser at the end of the quarter ended December 31, 2012 and repaid approximately $2.1 million to the Investment Adviser. The Investment Adviser announced that it intends to purchase shares of our common stock in the secondary market over the applicable six-month purchase period in compliance with applicable law and SEC guidance.
