On May 6, 2014, the Company disclosed that the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission has alerted Prospect Capital that some of the Company's wholly owned companies are investment companies for accounting purposes, and are required to be consolidated. Prospect Capital also announced that it may have to restate its prior financial statements to resolve the issue, and that this would likely decrease the Company's historical net investment income.
