NEW YORK, Aug. 03, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- KCAP Financial, Inc. (Nasdaq:KCAP) (the “Company”) announces its second quarter 2016 financial results.

Financial Highlights

  • Net investment income for the second quarter ended June 30, 2016 was approximately $5.1 million, or $0.14 per basic share, compared with approximately $5.8 million, or $0.16 per basic share in the quarter ended June 30, 2015.
  • Taxable distributable income for the quarter was $0.12 per basic share.
  • KCAP Financial, Inc. declared a second quarter shareholder distribution of $0.15 per share.
  • At June 30, 2016, the fair value of KCAP's investments totaled approximately $373 million.
  • Net asset value per share of $5.45 as of June 30, 2016, compared with $5.82 at December 31, 2015.

Dayl Pearson, President and Chief Executive Officer of KCAP Financial, Inc., noted, “Credit markets have continued to improve since the first quarter, and we remain cautiously optimistic about the economy, and our credit quality remains solid.”

Operating Results

For the three months ended June 30, 2016, we reported total investment income of approximately $9.6 million as compared to approximately $11.2 million in the same period last year, a decrease of 14%, which is primarily due to the deleveraging of our balance sheet. Investment income from debt securities decreased 11% to approximately $5.2 million from approximately $5.9 million in the second quarter of 2015. Investment income on CLO fund securities in the second quarter of 2016 decreased to $3.4 million from $4.0 million in 2015, and dividends from our Asset Manager Affiliates in the second quarter of 2016 decreased to $850,000 from $1.2 million in the second quarter of 2015.

For the three months ended June 30, 2016, total expenses were lower by approximately $868,000 as compared to the same period in 2015, primarily attributable to decreases in professional fees, as well as a decrease in interest expense due to the repurchase and repayments of the Convertible Notes throughout 2015 and the first quarter of 2016.

Net investment income for the second quarter of 2016 and 2015 was approximately $5.1 million and $5.8 million, or $0.14 and $0.16 per basic share, respectively. Net realized and unrealized depreciation on investments for the three months ended June 30, 2016 was approximately $2.0 million, as compared to approximately $4.6 million of unrealized depreciation for the same period in 2015.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

At June 30, 2016, we had unrestricted cash and money market balances of approximately $10.0 million, total assets of approximately $387.9 million, and stockholders' equity of approximately $202.2 million. Our net asset value per common share was $5.45. As of June 30, 2016, we had approximately $186.4 million (par value) of borrowings outstanding ($180.2 million net of discount and capitalized costs) with a weighted average interest rate of approximately 3.81%.

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 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 June 30, 2016. The record date for this distribution was July 7, 2016 and the distribution was paid on July 28, 2016. 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 2015 annual financial report. 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 three and six months ended June 30, 2016 and 2015:

Three Months Ended June 30, Six Months Ended June 30,
20161 20151 20161 20151
Net investment income $ 0.14 $ 0.16 $ 0.27 $0.33
Tax Accounting Difference on CLO Equity Investments 0.01 0.01 0.03 0.02
Other tax accounting differences (0.03) - (0.02) -
Taxable distributable income 0.12 0.17 0.28 0.36
Cash distributed to the Company by Asset Manager Affiliates in excess of their taxable earnings - 0.03 0.01 0.06
Available for distribution² 0.12 0.20 0.29 0.43
Distributed 0.15 0.21 0.30 0.42
Difference $ (0.03) $ (0.01) $ (0.01) $0.01
¹Table may not foot due to rounding.
²The "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 $0.00 and $0.01 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 three and six months ended June, 30, 2016, respectively. The Company's management believes that the presentation of the non-GAAP "Available for distribution" financial measure provides useful information to investors.
