Dayl Pearson, President and Chief Executive Officer of KCAP Financial, Inc., noted, “The fourth quarter of 2015 and beginning of 2016 have been volatile periods in the credit markets, which have had an impact on the Company’s NAV. Nevertheless, KCAP was well-positioned to withstand the downturn. Our focus will continue to be on preserving and enhancing shareholder value through careful capital planning and resource management while we selectively pursue opportunities that arise.”
For the year ended December 31, 2015, we reported total investment income of approximately $45.5 million as compared to approximately $41.2 million in the prior year, an increase of 10%. Investment income from debt securities increased 13% to approximately $24.1 million from approximately $21.4 million.

For the year ended December 31, 2015, total expenses were essentially flat as compared to 2014. Lower compensation-related expenses in 2015 were offset by increases in professional fees and overhead expenses.

Liquidity and Capital Resources
At December 31, 2015, we had unrestricted cash and money market balances of approximately $2.1 million, total assets of approximately $425.2 million and stockholders' equity of approximately $216.1 million. Our net asset value per common share was $5.82. As of December 31, 2015, we had $208.0 million of borrowings outstanding ($205.1 million net of discount) with a weighted average interest rate of approximately 4.08%.
As of December 31, 2015, there was approximately $19.3 million par value of Convertible Notes outstanding with a maturity date of March 15, 2016. In early March 2016, the Company had sufficient liquid resources available to satisfy its obligations under the Convertible Notes due March 15, 2016.
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 interest and dividend income generated by our investment portfolio and any distributions from our Asset Manager Affiliates (Trimaran Advisors and Katonah Debt Advisors). However, a portion of distributions paid to shareholders may be a return of capital. We announced a regular quarterly distribution of $0.15 per share for the quarter ended December 31, 2015. The record date for this distribution was January 6, 2016 and the distribution was paid on January 28, 2016. Tax characteristics of all distributions paid by us in 2015 have been reported to stockholders on Form 1099-DIV after the end of the calendar year.
We have adopted a dividend reinvestment plan that provides for reinvestment of distributions in shares of our common stock, unless a stockholder elects to receive cash. As a result, if we declare a cash distribution, shareholders who have not "opted out" of our dividend reinvestment plan will have their cash distributions automatically reinvested in additional shares of our common stock, rather than receiving cash. Please contact your broker or other financial intermediary for more information regarding the dividend reinvestment plan.
Supplemental Information: Analysis of Shareholder Distributions
On a supplemental basis, we are providing information relating to our shareholder distributions. The Company believes that taxable distributable income as reported in our financial statement footnotes is an important measure for investors. The Company may not distribute all of its taxable distributable income, or may over-distribute during any period.
The following table¹ depicts the composition of shareholder distributions on a per share basis for the year ended December 31, 2015 and 2014:
|Year Ended December 31,|
|Net investment income||$||0.65||$||0.59|
|Tax Accounting Difference on CLO Equity Investments||(0.03||)||0.18|
|Other tax accounting differences||-||0.02|
|Taxable distributable income||0.63||0.78|
|Cash distributed to the Company by Asset Manager Affiliates in excess of their taxable earnings||0.10||0.19|
|Available for distribution²||0.73||0.97|
|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 $0.10 and $0.19 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 for the year-ended December 31, 2015 and 2014, respectively. The Company's management believes that the presentation of the non-GAAP "Available for distribution" financial measure provides useful information to investors.|
