While growing net investment income, we have continued to increase our investment portfolio which totaled $77.6 million at quarter end, the largest level since our IPO in 2010," said John Stuart, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Full Circle Capital Corp. "Our primary strategy of investing in first lien senior secured loans to smaller and lower middle-market companies with a desirable yield continues to produce highly competitive portfolio metrics. We now have debt investments in 18 companies with first lien senior secured loans comprising 88% of the total investment portfolio. The weighted average yield on the portfolio was 12.55% for the quarter, within our current target range. Our positions are further supported by a loan-to-value ratio of 59%, with floating rate flexibility in 84% of our investments."
"With the capital raised during the quarter, we have additional resources to continue to expand our investment portfolio. Originations and additional funding to existing borrowers totaled $5.5 million for the second quarter and subsequent to the end of the quarter we added, net of payoffs, a $2.0 million investment to our portfolio. Our flexible uni-tranche lending solutions continue to attract quality credit opportunities allowing us to remain highly selective in the current market environment."
