Dayl Pearson, President and Chief Executive Officer of KCAP Financial, Inc., noted, "KCAP continued to grow net investment income in the 3rd quarter as both our direct lending and asset management businesses sustained their growth, contributing to an improved balance between our businesses."

Operating Results

For the three months ended September 30, 2014, we reported total investment income of approximately $13.7 million as compared to approximately $12.6 million in the same period last year, an increase of 8%. Investment income from debt securities increased 45% to approximately $5.4 million from approximately $3.7 million in the third quarter 2013. Dividends from investments in CLO fund securities in the third quarter of 2014 decreased to $4.8 million from $5.4 million in 2013, a decrease of 11%, and distributions from our Asset Manager Affiliates in the third quarter of 2014 decreased to approximately $3.1 million from approximately $3.3 million in 2013.

For the three months ended September 30, 2014, total expenses were higher by approximately $243,000 as compared to the same period in 2013, primarily attributable to increases in compensation expense and professional fees.

Net investment income for the third quarter of 2014 and 2013 was approximately $8.4 million and $7.6 million, or $0.25 per basic share and $0.23 per basic share, respectively.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

At September 30, 2014, we had unrestricted cash and money market balances of approximately $4.3 million, total assets of approximately $462.7 million and stockholders' equity of approximately $259 million. Our net asset value per common share was $7.67. As of September 30, 2014, we had $195.7 million (par value) of borrowings outstanding ($192.9 million net of discount) with a weighted average interest rate of approximately 5.1%.

In October 2014, the Company issued 3.0 million shares of its common stock in a public offering, raising net proceeds of approximately $23.9 million. Also in October, the Company purchased approximately $10.4 million of its own Convertible Notes at a price of $114.875.

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.

Distributions

Generally, we seek to fund distributions to shareholders from current distributable earnings, primarily from net investment income generated by our investment portfolio. We announced a regular quarterly distribution of $0.25 per share for the quarter ended September 30, 2014. The record date for this distribution was October 14, 2014 and the distribution was paid on October 29, 2014. An estimate of the tax attributes of distributions 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.
