Second Quarter 2015 Results
Total investment income during the second quarter of 2015 was $27.8 million, compared to total investment income of $24.9 million for the second quarter of 2014, representing an increase of 11.6%. The Company’s increase in investment income was primarily attributable to an increase in portfolio debt investments from June 30, 2014 to June 30, 2015. This increase was partially offset by a $1.4 million decrease in investment income relating to non-accrual assets, a $0.6 million decrease in non-recurring fee and dividend income and a decrease in the weighted average yield on our debt investments from June 30, 2014 to June 30, 2015.
Net investment income during the second quarter of 2015 was $16.2 million, compared to net investment income of $14.7 million for the second quarter of 2014, representing an increase of 10.3%. Net investment income per share during the second quarter of 2015 was $0.49, based on weighted average shares outstanding during the quarter of 33.2 million, compared to $0.53 per share during the second quarter of 2014, based on weighted average shares outstanding of 27.9 million.
The Company’s net increase in net assets resulting from operations was $12.2 million during the second quarter of 2015, compared to $24.2 million during the second quarter of 2014. The Company’s net increase in net assets resulting from operations was $0.37 per share during the second quarter of 2015, based on weighted average shares outstanding of 33.2 million, compared to $0.87 per share during the second quarter of 2014, based on weighted average shares outstanding of 27.9 million.
The Company’s net asset value, or NAV, at June 30, 2015, was $15.47 per share as compared to $16.11 per share at December 31, 2014. As of June 30, 2015, the Company’s weighted average yield on its outstanding, currently yielding debt investments was approximately 12.6%.
Liquidity and Capital Resources
Commenting on the Company’s liquidity position, Steven C. Lilly, Chief Financial Officer of the Company, stated, “We were pleased to utilize a portion of our new senior credit facility to redeem our 2019 Notes in June. This redemption is expected to generate interest savings of approximately $3.0 million per year. Our available liquidity of over $300.0 million at quarter-end puts Triangle in a strong position to support our investment activities as we enter the second half of the year.”
In May, 2015, Triangle closed a new $300.0 million senior credit facility (“Credit Facility”), which replaced the Company’s existing $165.0 million senior credit facility. The Credit Facility, which was jointly arranged by BB&T Capital Markets, ING Capital LLC and Fifth Third Bank, has an accordion feature which allows for an increase in the total borrowing size up to $350.0 million. The Credit Facility’s availability period ends May 3, 2019, followed by a one-year amortization period with a final maturity date of May 3, 2020. The interest rate for borrowings under the Credit Facility is LIBOR/CDOR plus 2.75%.
In June, 2015, the Company redeemed in full $69.0 million of unsecured notes issued in March, 2012, and due 2019 (the “Notes”) which resulted in a loss on the extinguishment of debt of $1.4 million. Prior to redemption, the Notes bore interest at a rate of 7.00% per year.
On May 27, 2015, Triangle announced that its board of directors had declared cash dividends totaling $0.59 per share, consisting of a regular quarterly dividend of $0.54 per share and a supplemental dividend of $0.05 per share. The regular quarterly dividend was the Company’s 34th consecutive quarterly dividend since its initial public offering in February, 2007. The record date for both the regular quarterly dividend and the supplemental dividend was June 10, 2015, and the payment date was June 24, 2015.
