August 7, 2014

ARLINGTON, Va., Aug. 7, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MCG Capital Corporation (Nasdaq:MCGC) ("MCG," "we," "our," "us" or the "Company") announced today its financial results for the quarter ended June 30, 2014.

HIGHLIGHTS

As outlined in further detail in this earnings release and in our Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended June 30, 2014, the following highlights occurred during the three months ended June 30, 2014:

• Net operating income, or NOI, was $0.6 million, or 0.01 per share;

 • Net loss was $5.3 million, or $0.09 per share, principally related to the strategic exit of education investments;

 • We made $2.7 million of advances to existing portfolio companies;

 • We monetized $128.2 million of our portfolio;

 • At June 30, 2014, we had $69.4 million in unrestricted cash and $129.5 million in restricted cash from our small business investment company, or SBIC. In addition, we had $2.2 million in other restricted cash accounts; and

 • We repurchased 13,313,493 shares of our common stock at a weighted average purchase price of $3.55 equal to a 19.7% discount to our June 30, 2014 Net Asset Value, or NAV, per share. On August 5, 2014, our board of directors authorized a new stock repurchase program of up to $50.0 million effective as of August 12, 2014.

DISTRIBUTION

On August 5, 2014, the MCG board of directors declared a distribution of $0.05 per share. The distribution is payable as follows:

Record date:August 20, 2014

Payable date:August 29, 2014

We determine the tax attributes of our distributions as of the end of our fiscal year based upon our taxable income for the full year and distributions paid during the full year. Therefore, a determination of tax attributes made on a quarterly basis may not be representative of the actual tax attributes of distributions for a full year. If we determined the tax attributes of our distributions as of June 30, 2014, 66% would be from ordinary income and 34% would be a return of capital.

CONFERENCE CALL INFORMATION

There is no scheduled earnings call to discuss our second quarter 2014 results. We will make a determination quarterly whether to hold earnings calls.

RECENT DEVELOPMENTS

Strategic Exit of Education Investments - Due to operational and regulatory challenges facing the for-profit education sector and certain of our portfolio companies, we elected to exit our investments in all four of our education portfolio companies, which represented 13% of our total portfolio at March 31, 2014. We exited three of our four education investments in the quarter ended June 30, 2014 and we settled on the sale of Education Management, Inc. in July 2014. This quarter we exited the following three education investments:

SC Academy Holdings, Inc. - We recognized a $4.0 million loss on the sale in the quarter ended June 30, 2014. However, we generated an IRR of approximately 6.4% on the investment, driven by the 14% interest rate that we charged on that investment;•Dorsey School of Business Holdings, Inc. - We sold the loan for par and generated an IRR of approximately 10.8%; and•Midwest Technical Institute, Inc. - We sold the loan for par and generated an IRR of approximately 13.4%. 

 •Open-Market Purchases of Our Stock- In the quarter ended June 30, 2014, we repurchased 13,313,493 shares of our common stock at a weighted average purchase price of $3.55 equal to a 19.7% discount to our June 30, 2014 NAV per share. We acquired these shares in open market transactions. We retire these shares upon settlement, thereby reducing the number of shares issued and outstanding. Under our $50.0 million stock repurchase program that became effective May 5, 2014 and terminated August 5, 2014, we repurchased 12,917,799 shares of our common stock at a weighted average purchase price of $3.66 equal to a 17.3% discount to our June 30, 2014 NAV per share. From January 1, 2014 to August 5, 2014, we repurchased 21,242,096 shares of our common stock at a weighted average purchase price of $3.68 equal to a 16.7% discount to our June 30, 2014 NAV per share.

 •Originations and Advances - We made $2.7 million in advances to existing portfolio companies.

 •Loan Monetizations - We received $127.0 million in loan payoffs and amortization payments. We generated an IRR of approximately 10.2% on the monetization of ten investments this quarter.

 •Equity Monetizations - We received $0.9 million in proceeds from the payoff of our preferred stock in Xpressdocs Holdings, Inc. and from warrants to purchase membership units in West World Media, LLC.

 •Loans on Non-Accrual - No new loans were put on non-accrual in the quarter ended June 30, 2014. Loans on non-accrual were $40.3 million at cost (19.3% of the total loan portfolio) and $7.9 million at fair value (4.4% of the total loan portfolio). In the quarter ended June 30, 2014, we participated substantially all of our economic interest in Advanced Sleep Concepts, Inc. to another lender and we agreed to sell our investment in Education Management, Inc., which settled in July 2014.

 •Operating Costs - Our total operating costs, excluding interest expense, were $7.1 million, or 1.77% of total assets of $401.1 million. We incurred $1.0 million in salaries and benefits tied to qualified investment exits in our SBIC, $1.1 million in amortization of employee restricted stock awards and $2.5 million in general and administrative expense associated with the retirement of our former CEO and other employee terminations and $0.6 million in general and administrative expense related to the Color Star Growers of Colorado, Inc. litigation, all of which we include in total operating costs.

 •Termination of Undrawn Bank of America Unsecured Revolver- On April 21, 2014, based on our assessment of our excess liquidity, we terminated our undrawn unsecured revolving credit facility with Bank of America, N.A. in the principal amount of $20.0 million. Interest expense includes $0.1 million associated with the acceleration of deferred financing costs.

OUTLOOK

During the quarter ended June 30, 2014, we took steps to strengthen our balance sheet by selling assets that, in our judgment, did not produce adequate compensation for the assumed risk relative to purchasing our stock in open-market transactions, which we acquired at a 19.7% discount to our NAV per share at June 30, 2014. From January 1, 2012 to August 5, 2014, we repurchased 28,440,881 shares of our common stock at a weighted average purchase price of $3.87 equal to a 12.4% discount to our June 30, 2014 NAV per share. We repurchased 5,169,336 shares in July 2014 at an average price of $3.95 that we anticipate will result in an additional $0.05 per share accretion to our NAV in the third quarter.

For new investments, we continue to evaluate the risk-reward relative to buying our stock, particularly given current market conditions. To that end, on August 5, 2014, our Board of Directors authorized a new stock repurchase program of up to $50.0 million which will commence on August 12, 2014.

We have adequate cash on-hand to retire the $150.0 million in SBIC debt outstanding at June 30, 2014. We intend to evaluate prepaying all or a part of our SBIC debt in September 2014, the next permitted prepayment date. Until scheduled maturity, our SBIC debt may be prepaid without penalty in March and September each year, in part or in full. If we were to prepay our SBIC debt in September, we would accelerate approximately $2.3 million of deferred financing costs in the quarter ended September 30, 2014.

On August 5, 2014, our board of directors declared a $0.05 per share dividend payable on August 29, 2014 to stockholders of record as of August 20, 2014.

ACCESS TO CAPITAL AND LIQUIDITY

At June 30, 2014, we had $69.4 million of cash and cash equivalents available for general corporate purposes, as well as $129.5 million of cash in restricted accounts related to our SBIC that we may use to fund new investments in the SBIC and $2.2 million of restricted cash held in escrow.

At June 30, 2014, $150.0 million of SBA borrowings were outstanding, the maximum available under our current SBIC license. As of June 30, 2014, the cost of debt of our outstanding borrowings was 4.6% including amortization of deferred financing fees.

On January 21, 2014, we repaid and terminated our MCG Commercial Loan Trust 2006-1, or 2006-1 Trust. As of December 31, 2013, we had $25.2 million of securitized Class D Notes outstanding under the 2006-1 Trust, which was secured by $76.3 million of loans and equity investments and $13.9 million of cash. Upon termination, the assets of the 2006-1 Trust were transferred to MCG, the parent.

TOTAL REVENUE

Total revenue includes interest and dividend income, loan fees, advisory fees and other income. The following sections describe the reasons for the variances in each major component of our revenue during the three months ended June 30, 2014 from the three months ended June 30, 2013.

INTEREST INCOME

The level of interest income that we earn depends upon the level of interest-bearing investments outstanding during the period, as well as the weighted-average yield on these investments. During the three months ended June 30, 2014, the total yield on our average debt portfolio at fair value was 12.4% compared to 12.5% during the three months ended June 30, 2013. The weighted-average yield varies each period because of changes in the composition of our portfolio of debt investments, changes in stated interest rates, fee accelerations of unearned fees on paid-off/restructured loans and the balance of loans on non-accrual status for which we are not accruing interest. 

The following table shows the various components of the total yield on our average debt portfolio at fair value for the three months ended June 30, 2014 and 2013:

 Three months ended June 30,
 20142013
Average 90-day LIBOR0.2 % 0.3 %
Spread to average LIBOR on average loan portfolio11.6 12.1
Impact of fee accelerations of unearned fees on paid/restructured loans1.0 0.1
Impact of non-accrual loans(0.4)
Total yield on average loan portfolio12.4 % 12.5 %


During the three months ended June 30, 2014, interest income was $7.6 million, compared to $11.2 million during the three months ended June 30, 2013, which represented a $3.7 million, or 32.6%, decrease. This decrease reflected a $2.6 million decrease in interest income resulting from a 25.6% decrease in our average loan balance, a decrease of $0.9 million resulting from loans that were on non-accrual status during the three months ended June 30, 2014, but that had been accruing interest during the three months ended June 30, 2013, and a $0.1 million decrease due to interest rate floors.

PIK Income

Interest income includes certain amounts that we have not received in cash, such as paid-in-kind interest, or PIK. PIK interest represents contractually deferred interest that is added to the principal balance of the loan and compounded if not paid on a current basis. Borrowers may, in some instances, be required to prepay PIK because of certain contractual provisions or they may choose to prepay; however, more typically, PIK is paid at the end of the loan term. The following table shows the PIK-related activity for the three months ended June 30, 2014 and 2013, at cost:

 Three months ended June 30,
(in thousands)20142013
Beginning PIK loan balance $ 11,717  $ 7,973
PIK interest earned during the period881 1,430
Payments received from PIK loans(8,413) (67)
Realized loss(129)
Ending PIK loan balance $ 4,056  $ 9,336


As of June 30, 2014, we were not accruing interest on $1.0 million of the PIK loans, at cost, shown in the preceding table and as of June 30, 2013, all of our PIK loans were accruing interest. During the three months ended June 30, 2014, the payments received from PIK loans included $5.3 million collected in conjunction with the repayment of our loan to Cruz Bay Publishing, Inc., $1.5 million collected in conjunction with the sale of our loan to SC Academy Holdings, Inc. and $0.9 million collected in conjunction with the repayment of our loan to West World Media, LLC.

DIVIDEND INCOME

We accrete dividends on equity investments with stated dividend rates as they are earned, to the extent that we believe the dividends will be paid ultimately and the associated portfolio company has sufficient value to support the accretion. Dividend accretion is included in the cost basis of the related equity instrument on our consolidated balance sheets and consolidated schedule of investments. We recognize dividends on other equity investments when we receive the dividend payment. Our dividend income varies from period to period because of changes in the size and composition of our equity investments, the yield from the investments in our equity portfolio and the ability of the portfolio companies to declare and pay dividends. During the three months ended June 30, 2014 and 2013, we recognized $0.1 million and $0.9 million, respectively, of dividend income. In addition, during the three months ended June 30, 2014 and 2013, we received payments on accrued dividends of $0.1 million and $0.2 million, respectively. As of June 30, 2014, the balance of accrued dividends was $7.6 million, which was principally comprised of $6.4 million related to our investment in RadioPharmacy Investors, LLC and $0.8 million related to our investment in Maverick Healthcare Equity, LLC.

ADVISORY FEES AND OTHER INCOME

Advisory fees and other income primarily include fees related to prepayment, advisory and management services, equity structuring, syndication, bank interest and other income. Generally, advisory fees and other income relate to specific transactions or services and, therefore, may vary from period to period depending on the level and types of services provided. During the three months ended June 30, 2014, we earned $0.8 million of advisory fees and other income, which represented a $0.4 million, or 141.1%, increase from the three months ended June 30, 2013. This increase resulted principally from an increase in prepayment fees related to loan prepayments in the second quarter of 2014.

TOTAL OPERATING EXPENSES

Total operating expenses include interest, employee compensation and general and administrative expenses. The reasons for these variances are discussed in more detail below.

INTEREST EXPENSE

During the three months ended June 30, 2014, we incurred $1.9 million of interest expense, which represented a $0.4 million, or 19.0%, decrease from the same period in 2013. During these respective periods, our average cost to borrow increased to 4.9% from 4.4%, principally due to the repayment of securitized debt in our 2006-1 Trust which carried interest rates ranging from L+0.33% to L+2.25%. As of June 30, 2014, the cost of debt of our outstanding borrowings was 4.6% including amortization of deferred financing fees.

During the three months ended June 30, 2014, our average borrowings declined to approximately $150.0 million from an average of approximately $209.6 million for the same period in 2013, which accounted for a $0.7 million reduction in our interest expense. In addition, interest expense decreased by $0.1 million related to decreased amortization of debt issuance costs. These decreases were offset by $0.3 million attributable to the spread to LIBOR increasing from approximately 3.55% to 4.12%.

EMPLOYEE COMPENSATION

Employee compensation expense includes base salaries and benefits, variable annual incentive compensation and amortization of employee stock awards. During the three months ended June 30, 2014, our employee compensation expense was $3.0 million, which represented a $1.1 million, or 55.9%, increase from the same period in June 30, 2013. Our salaries and benefits increased by $0.2 million, or 13.7%, due to a $0.5 million increase in incentive compensation tied to qualified investment exits in our SBIC, offset by a $0.3 million decrease in salaries and benefits. As of June 30, 2014, we had 13 employees compared to 21 employees as of June 30, 2013. Amortization of employee stock awards increased $0.9 million, or 229.3%. Amortization of employee stock awards for the three months ended June 30, 2014 includes $1.1 million of accelerated amortization related to the retirement of our former chief executive officer and other employee terminations.

GENERAL AND ADMINISTRATIVE

During the three months ended June 30, 2014, general and administrative expense was $4.1 million, which represented a $3.0 million, or 276.3%, increase compared to the same period in 2013. General and administrative expense for the three months ended June 30, 2014 included $2.5 million in severance related to the retirement of our former chief executive officer and other employee terminations.  In addition, general and administrative expense increased $0.6 million due to an increase in legal fees related to Color Star Growers of Colorado, Inc. litigation.

NET INVESTMENT LOSS BEFORE INCOME TAX PROVISION

During the three months ended June 30, 2014, we recorded $5.8 million of net investment loss before income tax provision, compared to $1.0 million of net investment gain during the same period in 2013. These amounts represent the total of net realized gains and losses, net unrealized appreciation (depreciation), and reversals of unrealized (appreciation) depreciation. We reverse unrealized (appreciation) depreciation at the time that we realize the gain or loss. The following table summarizes our realized and unrealized gain and (loss) on investments and changes in our unrealized appreciation and depreciation on investments for the three months ended June 30, 2014:

• In the second quarter of 2014, we sold our subordinated debt investment in SC Academy Holdings, Inc. for net proceeds of $11.1 million resulting in a realized loss of $4.0 million.

 • We also recorded $1.5 million of unrealized depreciation on our investment in Oceans Acquisition, Inc. to reflect a decrease in that portfolio company's operating performance.

The remaining unrealized depreciation and appreciation shown in the above table resulted predominantly from the change in the performance of certain of our portfolio companies and the multiples used to value certain of our investments.

• We received $3.0 million for the sale of our equity investment in Miles Media Group, LLC, which resulted in a $2.9 million realized gain and a reversal of previously unrealized appreciation of $1.2 million.

INCOME TAX (BENEFIT) PROVISION

During the three months ended June 30, 2013, we recorded a $6,000 income tax benefit primarily attributable to an adjustment to flow-through taxable income on certain investments held by our subsidiaries.
