Orlando, Fla., April 04, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Corporate Capital Trust, Inc. (“Corporate Capital Trust,” the “Company” or “we”) announced its operating results for the year ended Dec. 31, 2016. Corporate Capital Trust will host its earnings call to discuss these results on April 6, 2017. Details about the earnings call can be found below.

Highlights

  • Corporate Capital Trust’s continuous offering of common stock closed to new investors on Oct. 25, 2016. Throughout the course of the Company’s offerings of common stock, the Company sold approximately 322 million shares of common stock, raising gross proceeds of $3.4 billion, including the reinvestment of distributions. We will continue to issue shares through our distribution reinvestment plan.
  • As of Dec. 31, 2016, our investment portfolio4, excluding our short-term investments, totaled $4.4 billion and consisted primarily of senior debt and subordinated debt.
  • For the year ended Dec. 31, 2016, our net investment income was approximately $210.1 million, or $0.69 per share, as compared to $176.7 million, or $0.69 per share, for the same period in 2015.
  • Total cumulative return to shareholders on an initial investment of $10,000 made in June 2011, assuming the reinvestment of distributions, was 40.1 percent to $14,013 as of Dec. 31, 2016,1 (for an annualized return of 6.3 percent2), when including sales load. Excluding sales load, the total cumulative return to shareholders was 55.7 percent to $15,5701 (for an annualized return of 8.3 percent2).
  • Originated investments at fair value on Dec. 31, 2016, totaled approximately $2.8 billion, representing approximately 63 percent of the investment portfolio.4
  • During the year ended Dec. 31, 2016, proceeds from sales of investments and principal payments totaled $1.4 billion.
  • For the year ended Dec. 31, 2016, the Company declared distributions of approximately $245 million, or $0.80 per share, compared to $205 million, or $0.80 per share, for the year ended Dec. 31, 2015. Year-to-date distributions were fully covered by taxable income available for distribution.
  • Net asset value (NAV) per share as of Dec. 31, 2016, was $8.93 per share.
  • Beginning Jan. 1, 2017, the subordinated incentive fee on income became subject to a total return requirement, thereby incorporating both unrealized and realized gains and losses into the calculation. This can reduce fees paid to the advisor when NAV is declining, but will never increase fees higher than what they would have been otherwise.
