NEW YORK, May 7, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- KCAP Financial, Inc. (Nasdaq:KCAP) announces its first quarter 2014 financial results.
- Net investment income for the first quarter ended March 31, 2014 was approximately $7.9 million, or $0.24 per basic share, compared with $7.0 million, or $0.24 per basic share in 2013.
- KCAP Financial, Inc. declared a first quarter shareholder distribution of $0.25 per share.
- At March 31, 2014, the fair value of KCAP's investments totaled approximately $429 million.
- Net asset value per share of $7.62 as of March 31, 2014, compared with $7.51 at December 31, 2013.
Dayl Pearson, President and Chief Executive Officer of KCAP Financial, Inc., noted, "I am pleased with our first quarter results as the investments that we have made in our direct lending platform have allowed for the continued execution of our strategy to rotate our portfolio into higher yielding assets. Additionally, our Asset Manager's performance remains strong with good business momentum as they priced a new CLO fund in April and have opened a warehouse for a second fund for 2014."
For the three months ended March 31, 2014, we reported total investment income of approximately $13.4 million as compared to approximately $11.4 million in the prior period, an increase of 18%. Investment income from debt securities increased 112% to approximately $5.3 million from approximately $2.5 million. Dividends from investments in CLO fund securities in the first quarter of 2014 decreased to $4.9 million from $5.9 million in 2013, a decrease of 17%, and dividends from our Asset Manager Affiliates in the first quarter of 2014 were unchanged from 2013.
For the three months ended March 31, 2014, total expenses were higher by approximately $1.1 million as compared to the same period in 2013, primarily attributable to the increase in interest expense related to the higher average outstanding principal balance on our borrowings, as well as increased operating expenses.
Net investment income for the three months ended 2014 and 2013 was approximately $7.9 million and $7.0 million, respectively, or $0.24 per basic share for both periods. Net realized and unrealized depreciation on investments for the three months ended March 31, 2014 was approximately $4.4 million, as compared to net realized and unrealized appreciation on investments of approximately $267,000 for the same period in 2013.

Liquidity and Capital Resources
At March 31, 2014, we had unrestricted cash and money market balances of approximately $7.4 million, total assets of approximately $456.4 million and stockholders' equity of approximately $254.1 million. Our net asset value per common share was $7.62. As of March 31, 2014, we had $195.7 million of borrowings outstanding ($192.7 million net of discount) with a weighted average interest rate of approximately 5.1%.
Subject to prevailing market conditions, we intend to grow our portfolio of assets by raising additional capital, including through the prudent use of leverage available to us. As a result, we may seek to enter into new agreements with other lenders or into other financing arrangements as market conditions permit. Such financing arrangements may include a new secured and/or unsecured credit facility or the issuance of unsecured debt or preferred stock.
Generally, we seek to fund distributions to shareholders from current distributable earnings, primarily from net investment income generated by our investment portfolio and any distributions from our Asset Manager Affiliates (Trimaran Advisors and Katonah Debt Advisors). We announced a regular quarterly distribution of $0.25 per share for the quarter ended March 31, 2014. The record date for this distribution was April 4, 2014 and the distribution was paid on April 25, 2014. A determination of tax attributes made on a quarterly basis may not be representative of the actual tax attributes of distributions for a full year. Tax characteristics of all distributions will be reported to stockholders on Form 1099-DIV after the end of the calendar year.
We have adopted a dividend reinvestment plan that provides for reinvestment of distributions in shares of our common stock, unless a stockholder elects to receive cash. As a result, if we declare a cash distribution, shareholders who have not "opted out" of our dividend reinvestment plan will have their cash distributions automatically reinvested in additional shares of our common stock, rather than receiving cash. For more information regarding our distributions, please refer to our 2013 annual financial report. Please contact your broker or other financial intermediary for more information regarding the dividend reinvestment plan.
