"Fiscal 2013 began on a strong note as we recorded an 18% increase in net investment income per share in the first quarter over the fourth quarter of fiscal 2012, reflecting portfolio growth. Our aggregate investments in portfolio companies now total $75.5 million, the highest total since becoming a public company two years ago," said John Stuart, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Full Circle Capital Corp. "The flexibility offered by our uni-tranche lending solutions remains an attractive debt solution to our targeted market of lower and smaller middle market companies. Within this market environment, we remain highly selective of our investment opportunities as we are near full deployment at current liquidity levels."
"Our consistently strong investment portfolio metrics reflect our primary strategy of investing in first lien senior secured loans to smaller and lower middle-market companies with a desirable yield. We now have debt investments in 17 companies with first lien senior secured loans comprising 93% of the total investment portfolio. While the yield on the portfolio remains approximately 13%, we have retained flexibility in these investments with floating rate loans accounting for 93% of the portfolio, which we believe to be among the top tier of the BDC universe."
