In addition, our asset management business priced Catamaran CLO 2015-1 in the first quarter. That transaction, a $464 million CLO, successfully closed on May 5."
For the three months ended March 31, 2015, we reported total investment income of approximately $12 million as compared to approximately $10 million in the same period last year, an increase of 23%. Investment income from debt securities increased 18% to approximately $6.2 million from approximately $5.2 million in the first quarter 2014.

For the three months ended March 31, 2015, total expenses were higher by approximately $300,000 as compared to the same period in 2014, primarily attributable to costs incurred in connection with the restatement.

Liquidity and Capital Resources
At March 31, 2015, we had unrestricted cash and money market balances of approximately $3.3 million, total assets of approximately $505 million and stockholders' equity of approximately $264 million. Our net asset value per common share was $7.16. As of March 31, 2015, we had $224 million of borrowings outstanding (net of discount of $3.4 million) with a weighted average interest rate of approximately 4.4%.
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. We announced a regular quarterly distribution of $0.21 per share for the quarter ended March 31, 2015. The record date for this distribution was April 6, 2015 and the distribution was paid on April 27, 2015. An estimate of the tax attributes of distributions made on a quarterly basis may not be representative of the actual tax attributes of distributions for a full year. Tax characteristics of all distributions will be reported to stockholders on Form 1099-DIV after the end of the calendar year.
We have adopted a dividend reinvestment plan that provides for reinvestment of distributions in shares of our common stock, unless a stockholder elects to receive cash. As a result, if we declare a cash distribution, shareholders who have not "opted out" of our dividend reinvestment plan will have their cash distributions automatically reinvested in additional shares of our common stock, rather than receiving cash. For more information regarding our distributions, please refer to our 2014 annual report on Form 10-K. Please contact your broker or other financial intermediary for more information regarding the dividend reinvestment plan.
Supplemental Information: Analysis of Shareholder Distributions
On a supplemental basis, we are providing information relating to our shareholder distributions. The Company believes that taxable distributable income as reported in our financial statement footnotes is an important measure for investors. The Company may not distribute all of its taxable distributable income, or may over-distribute during any period.
The following table1 depicts the composition of shareholder distributions on a per share basis for the quarters ended March 31, 2015 and 2014:
|Quarter-ended March 31,|
|Net investment income||$ 0.18||$ 0.13|
|Tax Accounting Difference on CLO Equity Investments||0.01||0.05|
|Taxable distributable income||0.19||0.18|
|Cash distributed to the Company by the Asset Manager Affiliates in excess of their taxable earnings||0.03||0.05|
|Available for distribution²||0.23||0.23|
|Difference||$ 0.02||$ (0.02)|
|1 Table may not foot due to rounding.|
|2 The "Available for distribution" financial measure is a non-GAAP financial measure that is calculated by including the cash distributed to the Company by the Asset Manager Affiliates in excess of their taxable earnings to the Company's taxable distributable income, which is the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure. In order to reconcile the "Available for distribution" financial measure to taxable distributable income per share in accordance with GAAP, the $0.03 per share of cash distributed to the Company by the Asset Manager Affiliates in excess of their taxable earnings is subtracted from the "Available for distribution" financial measure.|
