Prospect Capital Announces 83.6% Increase in Net Income for Second Fiscal Quarter Over Prior Year Second Fiscal Quarter

February 3, 2014

NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 02/03/14 -- Prospect Capital Corporation (NASDAQ: PSEC) ("Company" or "Prospect") today announced financial results for our second fiscal quarter ended December 31, 2013 . For the December 2013 quarter, our net increase in net assets resulting from operations ("NI") was $85.4 million or $0.30 per weighted average number of shares for the quarter. For the December 2012 quarter, our NI was $46.5 million or $0.24 per weighted average number of shares for the quarter. NI increased year-over-year by 83.6% and 25.0% on a dollars and per share basis, respectively. For the six months ended December 31, 2013 , our NI was $165.3 million or $0.61 per weighted average number of shares for the period. For the six months ended December 31, 2012 , our NI was $93.7 million or $0.52 per weighted average number of shares for the period. NI increased year-over-year by 76.3% and 17.3% on a dollars and per share basis, respectively. For the December 2013 quarter, our net investment income ("NII") was $92.2 million or $0.32 per weighted average number of shares for the quarter. For the December 2012 quarter, our NII was $99.2 million or $0.51 per weighted average number of shares for the quarter. NII decreased year-over-year primarily due to significant non-recurring dividend income in the December 2012 period. For the six months ended December 31, 2013 , our NII was $174.6 million or $0.64 per weighted average number of shares for the period. For the six months ended December 31, 2012 , our NII was $173.2 million or $0.97 per weighted average number of shares for the period. NII decreased on a per share basis due to significant non-recurring income in the 2012 period. We have previously announced our upcoming and increasing monthly cash distributions to shareholders through September 2014 , ranging from $0.110350 per share for February 2014 to $0.110525 per share for September 2014 . Prospect's closing stock price of $10.87 as of January 31, 2014 delivers to shareholders a current dividend yield of 12.2%. We have generated cumulative NII in excess of cumulative distributions to shareholders since Prospect's initial public offering ("IPO") ten years ago. For the June 2013 fiscal year, our NII in excess of distributions to shareholders was $53.4 million and $0.26 per share. For the six months ended December 31, 2013 , distributions were in excess of NII by $8.8 million and $0.03 per share, distributing some of the excess which was built up in the previous two fiscal years. Since our IPO ten years ago through our September 2014 distribution, assuming our current share count for upcoming distributions, we will have distributed $12.93 per share to initial shareholders and $1.2 billion in cumulative distributions to all shareholders. Our net asset value per share on December 31, 2013 stood at $10.73 per share, an increase of $0.01 per share from September 30, 2013 and June 30, 2013 . Our debt to equity ratio stood at a modest 48.0% after subtraction of cash and equivalents as of December 31, 2013 , down from 53.7% as of September 30, 2013 and 55.7% as of June 30, 2013 . We estimate that our NII for the current March 2014 quarter will be $0.28 to $0.33 per share. Our objective is to grow net investment income per share in the coming quarters by focusing on matched-book funding to finance disciplined and accretive originations across our diversified lines of business. HIGHLIGHTS Equity Values: Net assets as of December 31, 2013 : $3.231 billion Net asset value per share as of December 31, 2013 : $10.73 Second Fiscal Quarter Operating Results: Net investment income: $92.22 million Net investment income per share: $0.32 Dividends to shareholders per share: $0.330825 Fiscal Year to Date Operating Results: Net investment income: $174.55 million Net investment income per share: $0.64 Net increase in net assets resulting from operations: $165.26 million Net increase in net assets per share resulting from operations: $0.61 Dividends to shareholders per share: $0.661425 Second Fiscal Quarter Portfolio and Investment Activity: Portfolio investments in quarter: $607.66 million Total portfolio investments at cost at December 31, 2013 : $4.976 billion Number of portfolio companies at December 31, 2013 : 130 PORTFOLIO AND INVESTMENT ACTIVITY Our origination efforts during the December 2013 quarter prioritized secured lending, with an emphasis on senior loans, although we also seek to close selected subordinated debt and income-producing equity investments. Our diversified approach includes seven origination strategies, including (1) lending in private equity sponsored transactions, (2) lending directly to companies not owned by private equity firms, (3) control investments in corporate operating companies, (4) control investments in financial companies, (5) investments in structured credit, (6) real estate investments, and (7) investments in syndicated debt. With our scale team of approximately 100 professionals, one of the largest dedicated middle-market credit groups in the industry, we believe we are well positioned to select in a disciplined manner a small number of investments out of thousands of investment opportunities sourced annually. Our portfolio's annualized current yield stood at 12.9% across all performing interest bearing investments as of December 31, 2013 . Distributions from equity positions that we hold are not included in this yield calculation. In many of our portfolio companies, we hold equity positions, ranging from minority interests to majority stakes, which we expect over time to contribute to our investment returns. While the market has experienced yield compression in recent months, we have continued to prioritize secured debt with our originations to protect against downside risk while still achieving above market yields through credit selection discipline and a differentiated origination approach. At December 31, 2013 , our portfolio consisted of 130 long-term investments with a fair value of $4.886 billion , a record total, compared to 124 long-term investments with a fair value of $4.173 billion at June 30, 2013 . During the December 2013 quarter, we completed 34 new and follow-on investments aggregating $607.7 million , sold six investments, and received full repayment on five other investments. Our sales, repayments and scheduled amortization payments in the December 2013 quarter were $255.2 million , resulting in investments net of repayments of $352.4 million . Broadly diversified across our lines of business, our originations in the December 2013 quarter were weighted toward the last two months of the quarter, resulting in only a partial quarter positive income benefit from such originations. We expect such originations to generate full-quarter positive benefit in the current March 2014 quarter. In the March 2013 quarter we launched a call center initiative with multiple full-time resources to drive a higher level of investment opportunity sourcing from direct companies and intermediaries. The majority of our portfolio consists of agented middle-market loans that we have originated, structured, selected, and closed. In general, we perceive the risk-adjusted reward in the current environment to be superior for agented and self-originated opportunities compared to the syndicated market, causing us to prioritize our proactive sourcing efforts. The call center initiative already has led to closed deal activity, and we anticipate such effort to continue to have a positive impact on our business in the upcoming quarters.

The fair market value of our loan assets on non-accrual as a percentage of total assets stood at approximately 0.3% on December 31, 2013 and June 30, 2013 , down from 1.9% on June 30, 2012 . We are pleased with the overall credit quality of our portfolio, with many of our companies generating year-over-year and sequential growth in top-line revenues and bottom-line profits. During calendar year 2012, we received significant dividends and interest income from our Energy Solutions investment. Our income from Energy Solutions in calendar year 2013 is significantly less than such income in calendar year 2012. We are targeting to offset this decrease by utilizing existing liquidity and prudent leverage to finance our growth through new originations, including attractive yielding investments in the financial services and other sectors. Because of the solid performance of several controlled positions in our portfolio, we have selectively monetized certain such companies and may monetize other positions if we identify attractive opportunities for exit. As such exits materialize, we expect to reinvest such proceeds into new income-producing opportunities. We are pleased with the performance of our controlled portfolio companies, and are actively exploring other new investment opportunities at attractive multiples of cash flow. Our advanced investment pipeline aggregates more than $800 million of potential opportunities diversified across multiple sectors. These opportunities are primarily secured investments with double-digit coupons, sometimes coupled with equity upside through additional investments. LIQUIDITY AND FINANCIAL RESULTS Our modestly leveraged balance sheet, with its vast majority of unencumbered assets, access to multiple funding sources, matched-book funding, and weighting toward unsecured fixed-rate debt, is a source of significant strength. Our debt to equity ratio stood at a modest 48.0% after subtraction of cash and equivalents at December 31, 2013 . Our equitized balance sheet also gives us the potential for future earnings upside as we prudently utilize and grow our existing revolving credit facility as well as potentially add additional secured or unsecured term facilities made more attractive by our investment-grade ratings at corporate, revolving facility, and term debt levels. On March 27, 2012 , we renegotiated our credit facility and closed on an expanded five-year revolving credit facility (the "Facility") for Prospect Capital Funding LLC . As of December 31, 2013 , the Facility size stood at $650.0 million . On January 15, 2014 , we expanded the accordion feature of the Facility from $650.0 million to $1.0 billion and increased the commitments to the Facility by $62.5 million to $712.5 million . As of February 3, 2014 , 22 banks have committed to the Facility. As we make additional investments, we generate additional availability to the extent such investments are eligible to be placed into the borrowing base. The revolving period of the Facility extends through March 2015 , with an additional two-year amortization period, with distributions allowed after the completion of the revolving period. Interest on borrowings under the Facility is one-month Libor plus 275 basis points, with no minimum Libor floor. The Facility continues to carry a high-investment-grade Moody's rating of Aa3. We also have significantly diversified our counterparty risk. The current count of 22 institutional lenders in the Facility compares to five lenders at June 30, 2010 and represents the most diversified bank group in our industry. In addition, our repeat issuance in the 5-year to 30-year unsecured term debt market has extended our liability duration, thereby better matching our assets and liabilities for balance sheet risk management. On December 21, 2010 , we issued $150.0 million in principal amount of 6.25% senior unsecured convertible notes, convertible at $11.23 per common share and due December 2015 ("2015 Converts"). On February 18, 2011 , we issued $172.5 million in principal amount of 5.50% senior unsecured convertible notes, convertible at $12.73 per common share and due August 2016 ("2016 Converts"). In the March 2012 quarter, we repurchased $5.0 million of the 2016 Converts. On April 16, 2012 , we issued $130.0 million in principal amount of 5.375% senior unsecured convertible notes, convertible at $11.61 per common share and due October 2017 ("2017 Converts"). On August 14, 2012 , we issued $200.0 million in principal amount of 5.75% senior unsecured convertible notes, convertible at $12.07 per common share and due March 2018 ("2018 Converts"). On December 21, 2012 , we issued $200.0 million in principal amount of 5.875% senior unsecured convertible notes, convertible at $12.53 per common share and due January 2019 ("2019 Converts", and together with the 2015 Converts, 2016 Converts, 2017 Converts, and 2018 Converts, the "Convertible Notes"). On May 1, 2012 , we issued $100.0 million in principal amount of 6.95% senior unsecured notes due November 2022 (the "2022 Baby Bond Notes"). The 2022 Baby Bond Notes trade on the New York Stock Exchange with ticker PRY and further demonstrate our diversified access to longer-dated funding. On March 15, 2013 , we issued $250.0 million in aggregate principal amount of 5.875% senior unsecured notes due March 2023 (the "2023 Notes"). On February 16, 2012 , we entered into a Selling Agent Agreement for our issuance and sale from time to time of senior unsecured program notes (the "Program Notes", and together with the 2022 Baby Bond Notes, Convertible Notes, and the 2023 Notes, the "Unsecured Notes"). Since initiating the program, we have issued $647.3 million of Program Notes. These notes were issued with interest rates ranging from 3.24% to 7.00% with a weighted average rate of 5.48%. These notes mature between October 15, 2016 and October 15, 2043 . The Unsecured Notes are general unsecured obligations of Prospect, with no financial covenants, no technical cross default provisions, and no payment cross default provisions with respect to our revolving credit facility. The Unsecured Notes have no restrictions related to the type and security of assets in which Prospect might invest. These Unsecured Notes have an investment-grade S&P rating of BBB and Kroll rating of BBB+. As of December 31, 2013 , Prospect held more than $4.1 billion of unencumbered assets on its balance sheet to benefit holders of Unsecured Notes and Prospect shareholders. On May 8, 2013 , August 22, 2013 and November 5, 2013 , we entered into equity distribution agreements relating to at-the-market offerings from time to time of our common stock. During the period from July 1, 2013 to December 31, 2013 , we issued approximately 50.7 million shares of our common stock at an average price of $11.22 per share, and raised $569.1 million of gross proceeds, with all issuance at prices above net asset value per share. During the period from January 1, 2014 to January 31, 2014 (with settlement through February 5, 2014 ), we sold approximately 10.5 million shares of our common stock at an average price of $11.17 per share, and raised $117.8 million of gross proceeds, with all issuance at prices above net asset value per share. We currently have no borrowings under our Facility. Assuming sufficient assets are pledged to the Facility and that we are in compliance with all Facility terms, and taking into account our cash balances on hand, we have over $800 million of new investment capacity. Any principal repayments, other monetizations of our assets, debt and other capital issuances, or increases in our Facility size would also further increase our investment capacity.
