(“ProPetro”) and a portion of its First Lien Term C Loan for a First Lien Term B Loan issued by ProPetro that matures on June 30, 2015 ($9.8 million principal amount). The First Lien Term B Loan pays interest in cash at a rate of 10.00% per annum. The Company’s remaining investment in the First Lien Term C Loan was repaid at par value plus accrued interest ($9.8 million in cash proceeds).
Amendment to Credit Facility. On March 11, 2013, the Company amended its senior secured revolving credit facility (the “Credit Facility”) to add a new lender to the syndicate and to increase the total commitment amount by $10.0 million to $95.0 million.

Direct Fuels Investment. On March 22, 2013, the Company’s largest investment, Direct Fuels Partners, L.P., (“Direct Fuels”) announced plans with two other private companies to form a variable-pay MLP called Emerge Energy Services LP (“Emerge”).

Emerge filed a registration statement with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) on March 22, 2013 and commenced its initial public offering (“IPO”) on April 30, 2013. The Company expects that an IPO of Emerge would result in the Company receiving a combination of cash and Emerge common units. The Emerge common units will be subject to a six month lock-up period after the IPO. Additionally, the Company’s Preferred A, B and C Units in Direct Fuels are expected to be redeemed for cash concurrent with the IPO. The Company can provide no assurance as to the final terms, timing or estimated proceeds from Emerge’s IPO.

LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES
As of April 25, 2013, the Company had $89.0 million of borrowings under its credit facility (at an interest rate of 2.25%) which represented 50.5% of its borrowing base of $176.4 million (54.8% of its borrowing base attributable to quoted securities). At the same date, the Company’s asset coverage ratio under the Investment Company Act of 1940 was 401%. The maximum amount that the Company can borrow under its credit facility is limited to the lesser of the commitment amount of $95.0 million or its borrowing base.
On March 28, 2013, the Company declared a distribution of $0.435 per share for the quarter ended February 28, 2013, which was paid on April 26, 2013 to stockholders of record on April 19, 2013.
As a result of investment activity after February 28, 2013, the Company’s guidance is based on its portfolio as of April 25, 2013. The Company estimates its portfolio will generate dividends, distributions, and interest income of approximately $7.25 million in the next quarter. The estimate includes distributions of $0.91 million per quarter from VantaCore, which is based on only the cash distributions the Company expects to receive, on average, over the next four quarters of $0.344 per common unit and per preferred A unit and $0.383 per preferred B unit. The Company’s guidance does not include $0.33 million of non-cash distributions that the Company expects to receive on VantaCore’s common and preferred A units. The Company’s guidance does not include any impact from the Company’s investment in Direct Fuels as a result of the proposed IPO of Emerge (outlined in Recent Events above) and does not reflect any changes in cash distributions made by MLPs or changes in interest rates based on the movement in LIBOR rates since April 25, 2013.
|Public MLPs and Other Public Equity||285||6.1|
|(1)||Average yields include return of capital distributions. Return of capital distributions are reported as a reduction to gross dividends and distributions to arrive at net investment income reported under generally accepted accounting principles.|
|(2)||Average yields for Public MLPs and Other Public Equity are based on the most recently declared distributions as of April 25, 2013. Amounts invested and average yields for Private MLPs are based on February 28, 2013 valuations.|
|(3)||The average yield includes straight-line amortization of the purchase price discounts/premiums through the expected maturity.|
|(4)||The amount invested includes the Company’s $9.8 million debt investment in ProPetro at April 25, 2013. This investment pays cash interest at an annual rate of 10.0%.|
Management Fees and Other Operating Expenses – Management fees are estimated to be approximately $1.75 million per quarter. Other operating expenses are estimated to be approximately $0.37 million per quarter.
Interest Expense – Interest expense is estimated to be approximately $0.50 million per quarter based on $90.0 million borrowed under the Company’s credit facility, assuming a 30-day LIBOR rate of 0.20% and a spread of 2.00%.
Based on the foregoing assumptions, the Company is expected to generate net distributable income (“NDI”) per share of $0.435 to $0.445 in the second quarter of fiscal 2013. Upon completion of Emerge’s IPO, the Company will provide updated NDI guidance.
