MCG Capital Corporation Logo

ARLINGTON, Va., Oct. 30, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MCG Capital Corporation (Nasdaq:MCGC) ("MCG," "we," "our," "us" or the "Company") announced today its financial results for the quarter ended September 30, 2013.

HIGHLIGHTS

As outlined in further detail in this earnings release and in our Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended September 30, 2013, the following highlights occurred during the three months ended September 30, 2013:

  • Net operating income, or NOI, was $8.0 million, or $0.11 per share;
  • Net income was $3.3 million, or $0.05 per share;
  • We made $4.2 million of advances to existing portfolio companies;
  • We monetized $60.9 million of our debt portfolio;
  • At September 30, 2013, we had $133.2 million of cash on-hand to make new investments using unrestricted cash and restricted cash from our small business investment company, or SBIC. In addition, we had $9.4 million in securitization accounts and other restricted cash accounts; and
  • We incurred severance costs of $0.8 million, or $0.01 per share, of which $0.7 million is included in general and administrative expense and $0.1 in amortization of employee restricted stock awards.

DISTRIBUTION

On October 25, 2013, the MCG board of directors declared a distribution of $0.125 per share. The distribution is payable as follows:

Record date: November 8, 2013
Payable date: November 22, 2013

If we determined the tax attributes of our 2013 distributions as of September 30, 2013, 75% would be from ordinary income and 25% would be a return of capital. However, actual determinations of the tax attributes of our distributions, including determinations of return of capital, are made annually as of the end of the fiscal year based upon our taxable income and distributions paid for the full year. Therefore, a determination as to the tax attributes of the distributions made on a quarterly basis may not be representative of the actual tax attributes for a full year. We intend to update stockholders quarterly with an estimated percentage of our distributions that resulted from taxable ordinary income. The actual tax characteristics of distributions to stockholders will be reported to stockholders annually on a Form 1099-DIV.

Additionally, our board of directors authorized a stock repurchase program of up to $25.0 million. Under the program, MCG management is authorized to repurchase shares in open market transactions, including through block purchases, depending on prevailing market conditions and other factors. We intend to fund the repurchases through our available liquidity. In announcing the stock repurchase program, B. Hagen Saville, President and CEO of MCG, commented, "the MCG board of directors believes that adoption of a stock repurchase program provides us with an effective tool to manage our unencumbered cash and overall capital position in our efforts to enhance stockholder value." The previous MCG stock repurchase program, which was authorized on January 17, 2012 for up to $35.0 million, was terminated after we effected repurchases totaling approximately $29.4 million. During the nine months ended September 30, 2012, we repurchased 504,639 shares of our common stock at a weighted average purchase price of $4.50 per share, which was a 13.1% discount from our quarterly net asset value per share.

MCG will soon mail to all stockholders the notice required by Section 23(c) of the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended, regarding the possibility of share repurchases over the following six months. The repurchase program may be extended, modified or discontinued at any time for any reason. The program does not obligate MCG to acquire any specific number of shares, and all repurchases will be made in accordance with SEC Rule 10b-18, which sets certain restrictions on the method, timing, price and volume of stock repurchases.

RECENT DEVELOPMENTS

  • Originations and Advances — For the three and nine month periods ended September 30, 2013, we made $4.2 million and $91 million, respectively, in originations and advances to new and existing portfolio companies.
  • Loan Monetizations — For the three and nine month periods ended September 30, 2013, we received $60.9 million and $162.4 million, respectively, in loan payoffs and amortization payments.
  • Equity Monetizations and Realizations — For the three and nine month periods ended September 30, 2013, we received $0.3 million and $8.1 million, respectively, in proceeds from the sale of equity investments, principally the sale of securities in each of Miles Media Group, LLC, NDSSI Holdings, LLC and Jenzabar, Inc.
  • Loans on Non-Accrual — As of September 30, 2013, loans on non-accrual were $27.7 million at cost (7.4% of the total loan portfolio), and $13.2 million at fair value (3.7% of the total loan portfolio). During the quarter ended September 30, 2013, CWP/RMK Acquisition Corp. repaid the principal balance of its loan and we put Color Star Growers of Colorado, Inc. on non-accrual status.
  • Operating Costs — For the three month period ended September 30, 2013, our total operating costs, excluding interest expense, were $2.9 million, or 0.5% of total assets of $546 million. During this same period, we incurred severance costs of $0.8 million, or 0.1% of total assets, that we included in total operating costs.
  • Reduced Leverage — From June 30, 2013 to September 30, 2013, we reduced our outstanding borrowings under our MCG Commercial Loan Trust, or 2006-1 Trust, by $25.8 million, reducing our borrowings under our 2006-1 Trust from $54.9 million to $29.2 million as of September 30, 2013. In October 2013, we further reduced our borrowings under our 2006-1 Trust by $4.0 million from $29.2 million to $25.2 million.

OUTLOOK

For the remainder of 2013, we anticipate monetizing an additional $20.0 million to $40.0 million of investments. For the twelve months ending December 31, 2013, we expect aggregate monetizations of approximately $190.0 million to $210.0 million of investments, approximately two times the amount we projected at the beginning of 2013 and approximately 40% of our investment portfolio as of December 31, 2013. Over the next four quarters, we generally expect portfolio monetizations to range between $90.0 million to $120.0 million.

Over the four quarters ended September 30, 2013, we originated or advanced over $200.0 million to portfolio companies. Assuming the wind-down of our 2006-1 Trust and based on our total assets available for investment of approximately $500.0 million, over time we would expect to monetize and redeploy approximately $150.0 million to $200.0 million of capital per year and remain fully deployed. During the fourth quarter of 2013, we anticipate that we will originate or advance approximately $30.0 million to $45.0 million of investments.

We took active steps during the quarter ended September 30, 2013 to shift resources to the asset management portion of our business. Over the next six months, we intend to hire additional asset management professionals focused primarily on originations. We are targeting the origination of new loans and equity co-investments sufficient to end the year with total investments of $385 million to $420 million (calculated at fair value).

Before considering any potential implications of a second SBIC license, we anticipate that we will originate or advance the majority of our available capital by late 2014 or the first half of 2015. Depending on the level of monetizations, and assuming we can fully deploy our available capital by December 31, 2014, we expect to end calendar year 2014 with approximately $450.0 million to $500.0 million of total investments and $475.0 million to $525.0 million of total assets. We also anticipate paying off our 2006-1 Trust by December 31, 2014.

Driven primarily by the accelerated levels of monetization that we have experienced to date and taking into consideration the levels of monetizations that we expect over the next five fiscal quarters, we estimate that our NOI per quarter will range from $0.08 to $0.10 per share over the next two-to-three fiscal quarters before increasing to $0.11 to $0.13 per share as we fully deploy our capital. As a result and subject to approval by our board of directors, we anticipate maintaining our quarterly distribution at 12.5 cents per share over this horizon.

ACCESS TO CAPITAL AND LIQUIDITY

At September 30, 2013, we had $96.4 million of cash and cash equivalents available for general corporate purposes, as well as $36.8 million of cash in restricted accounts related to our SBIC that we may use to fund new investments in the SBIC and $1.6 million of restricted cash held in escrow. In addition, we had $7.8 million of cash in securitization accounts, that may only be used to make interest and principal payments on our securitized borrowings or distributions to MCG in accordance with the indenture agreement of the 2006-1 Trust.

At September 30, 2013, cash in securitization accounts included $6.3 million in the principal collections account of our 2006-1 Trust. In October 2013, we used the $6.3 million of securitized cash to repay borrowings of our 2006-1 Trust, a pro rata portion of which we received for the principal we own. The reinvestment period for this facility ended on July 20, 2011 and all subsequent principal collections received have been, and will be, used to repay the securitized debt. At September 30, 2013, the net outstanding borrowings under the 2006-1 Trust were $29.2 million, which was reduced to $25.2 million in October 2013.

At September 30, 2013, $150.0 million of United States Small Business Administration, or SBA, borrowings were outstanding, the maximum available under our current SBIC license.

At September 30, 2013, we had full access to our $20.0 million unsecured revolving credit facility with Bank of America, N.A.

TOTAL REVENUE

Total revenue includes interest and dividend income, loan fees, advisory fees and other income. The following sections describe the reasons for the variances in each major component of our revenue during the three months ended September 30, 2013 from the three months ended September 30, 2012.

INTEREST INCOME

The level of interest income that we earn depends upon the level of interest-bearing investments outstanding during the period, as well as the weighted-average yield on these investments. During the three months ended September 30, 2013, the total yield on our average debt portfolio at fair value was 12.4% compared to 11.1% during the three months ended September 30, 2012. The weighted-average yield varies each period because of changes in the composition of our portfolio of debt investments, changes in stated interest rates, fee accelerations of unearned fees on paid-off/restructured loans and the balance of loans on non-accrual status for which we are not accruing interest.

The following table shows the various components of the total yield on our average debt portfolio at fair value for the three months ended September 30, 2013 and 2012:

Three months ended September 30,
2013 2012
Average 90-day LIBOR 0.3% 0.4%
Spread to average LIBOR on average loan portfolio 12.0 10.9
Impact of fee accelerations of unearned fees on paid/restructured loans 0.6 0.3
Impact of non-accrual loans (0.5) (0.5)
Total yield on average loan portfolio 12.4% 11.1%

During the three months ended September 30, 2013, interest income was $10.7 million, compared to $10.3 million during the three months ended September 30, 2012, which represented a $0.4 million, or 3.8%, increase. This increase reflected a $1.2 million increase in interest income attributable to a 1.2% increase in our net spread to LIBOR, partially offset by a $0.5 million decrease in interest income resulting from a 4.2% decrease in our average loan balance, a decrease of $0.2 million due to interest rate floors and a $0.2 million decrease related to the decrease in LIBOR.

PIK Income

Interest income includes certain amounts that we have not received in cash, such as paid-in-kind, or PIK, interest. PIK interest represents contractually deferred interest that is added to the principal balance of the loan and compounded if not paid on a current basis. Borrowers may, in some instances, be required to prepay PIK because of certain contractual provisions or they may choose to prepay; however, more typically, PIK is paid at the end of the loan term. The following table shows the PIK-related activity for the three months ended September 30, 2013 and 2012, at cost:

Three months ended September 30,
(in thousands) 2013 2012
Beginning PIK loan balance $ 9,336 $ 5,625
PIK interest earned during the period 1,644 1,112
Payments received from PIK loans (135) (623)
Ending PIK loan balance $ 10,845 $ 6,114

As of September 30, 2013, all of our PIK loans were accruing interest and, as of September 30, 2012, we were not accruing interest on $1.4 million of the PIK loans, at cost, shown in the preceding table. During the three months ended September 30, 2012, we received payments on PIK loans from five investments.

DIVIDEND INCOME

We accrete dividends on equity investments with stated dividend rates as they are earned, to the extent that we believe the dividends will be paid ultimately and the associated portfolio company has sufficient value to support the accretion. We recognize dividends on our other equity investments when we receive the dividend payment. Our dividend income varies from period to period because of changes in the size and composition of our equity investments, the yield from the investments in our equity portfolio and the ability of the portfolio companies to declare and pay dividends. During the three months ended September 30, 2013 and 2012, we recognized dividend income of $0.8 million and $0.9 million, respectively. In addition, during the three months ended September 30, 2013 and 2012, we received payments on accrued dividends of $0.2 million and $0.3 million, respectively. As of September 30, 2013, the balance of accrued dividends was $11.3 million.

ADVISORY FEES AND OTHER INCOME

Advisory fees and other income primarily include fees related to prepayment, advisory and management services, equity structuring, syndication, bank interest and other income. Generally, advisory fees and other income relate to specific transactions or services and, therefore, may vary from period to period depending on the level and types of services provided. During the three months ended September 30, 2013, we earned $0.6 million of advisory fees and other income, which represented a $0.3 million, or 149.1%, increase from the three months ended September 30, 2012. This increase resulted from an increase in prepayment fees related to a loan prepayment in the third quarter of 2013.

TOTAL OPERATING EXPENSES

Total operating expenses include interest, employee compensation and general and administrative expenses. The reasons for these variances are discussed in more detail below.

INTEREST EXPENSE

During the three months ended September 30, 2013, we incurred $2.3 million of interest expense, which represented a $0.7 million, or 22.1%, decrease from the same period in 2012. During these respective periods, our average cost to borrow increased to 4.9% from 4.3%, principally due to the repayment of securitized debt in our 2006-1 Trust which carries interest rates ranging from L+0.33% to L+2.25%, offset by a decrease in the amortization of deferred financing costs to $0.3 million from $0.8 million.

During the three months ended September 30, 2013, our average borrowings declined to approximately $183.5 million from an average of approximately $267.8 million for the same period in 2012, which accounted for a $0.9 million reduction in our interest expense. In addition, interest expense decreased by $0.5 million related to decreased amortization of debt issuance costs and $0.1 million due to a decrease in the average LIBOR rate from 0.43% to 0.26%. These decreases were offset by $0.8 million attributable to the spread to LIBOR increasing from approximately 2.71% to 3.95%.

We recognized $0.3 million in deferred financing costs during the three months ended September 30, 2013, down $0.5 million from the same period in 2012. The decrease is primarily attributable to $0.5 million in accelerated deferred financing fees related to repayment of securitized debt in our 2006-1 Trust in the third quarter of 2012.

EMPLOYEE COMPENSATION

Employee compensation expense includes base salaries and benefits, variable annual incentive compensation and amortization of employee stock awards. During the three months ended September 30, 2013, our employee compensation expense was $1.1 million, which represented a $1.5 million, or 57.8%, decrease from the same period in September 30, 2012. Our salaries and benefits decreased by $1.4 million, or 68.1%, due to a $1.0 million decrease in incentive compensation and a $0.4 million decrease in salaries and benefits primarily resulting from our operational realignment. As of September 30, 2013, we had 17 employees compared to 24 employees as of September 30, 2012.

GENERAL AND ADMINISTRATIVE

During the three months ended September 30, 2013, general and administrative expense was $1.8 million, which represented a $0.7 million, or 27.2%, decrease compared to the same period in 2012. General and administrative expense decreased $0.6 million due to reduced occupancy and other costs for our new corporate office space and $0.3 million due to a decrease in professional fees related to portfolio litigation. These decreases were offset by a $0.7 million increase in severance costs related to employee terminations in the third quarter of 2013.

NET INVESTMENT GAIN BEFORE INCOME TAX PROVISION

During the three months ended September 30, 2013, we recorded $4.6 million of net investment loss before income tax provision, compared to $0.2 million of net investment gains during the same period in 2012. These amounts represent the total of net realized gains and losses, net unrealized appreciation (depreciation), and reversals of unrealized (appreciation) depreciation. We reverse unrealized (appreciation) depreciation at the time that we realize the gain or loss. The following table summarizes our realized and unrealized gain and (loss) on investments and changes in our unrealized appreciation and depreciation on investments for the three months ended September 30, 2013:

Three months ended September 30, 2013
(in thousands) Reversal of
Unrealized Unrealized Net
Realized (Depreciation)/ Depreciation/ (Loss)/
Portfolio Company Industry Type Gain/(Loss) Appreciation (Appreciation) Gain
G&L Investment Holdings, LLC Insurance Non-Affiliate $ — $ (2,915) $ — $ (2,915)
Other (< $1.0 million net gain (loss)) 102 (1,715) (88) (1,701)
Total $ 102 $ (4,630) $ (88) $ (4,616)

In the third quarter of 2013, we recorded $2.9 million of unrealized depreciation on our investment in G&L Investment Holdings, LLC, to reflect a decrease in that portfolio company's operating performance.

The remaining unrealized depreciation and appreciation shown in the above table resulted predominantly from the change in the performance of certain of our portfolio companies and the multiples used to value certain of our investments.

The following table summarizes our realized and unrealized (loss) and gain on investments and changes in our unrealized appreciation and depreciation on investments for the three months ended September 30, 2012:

Three months ended September 30, 2012
(in thousands) Reversal of
Unrealized Unrealized Net
Realized (Depreciation)/ Depreciation/ (Loss)/
Portfolio Company Industry Type Gain/(Loss) Appreciation (Appreciation) Gain
Advanced Sleep Concepts, Inc. Home Furnishings Affiliate $ — $ (2,618) $ — $ (2,618)
Cruz Bay Publishing, Inc. Publishing Non-Affiliate 1,987 1,987
PremierGarage Holdings, LLC Home Furnishings Control (5,371) 5,371
Other (< $1 million net gain (loss)) (23) 1,017 (135) 859
Total $ (5,394) $ 386 $ 5,236 $ 228

  • In the third quarter of 2012, we recorded $2.6 million of unrealized depreciation on our investment in Advanced Sleep Concepts, Inc., to reflect a decrease in that portfolio company's operating performance.
  • We also recorded $2.0 million of unrealized appreciation on our investment in Cruz Bay Publishing, Inc., to reflect an improvement in that portfolio company's operating performance.
  • In addition, during the three months ended September 30, 2012, we wrote off our preferred and common equity investments in PremierGarage Holdings, LLC resulting in a realized loss of $5.4 million and a reversal of previously recorded unrealized depreciation of $5.4 million .

INCOME TAX (BENEFIT) PROVISION

During the three months ended September 30, 2013, we incurred a $59,000 income tax provision compared to an $18,000 income tax provision during the three months ended September 30, 2012. The income tax provision for both periods was primarily attributable to flow-through taxable income on certain investments held by our subsidiaries.
