Financial report summary

Management Discussion
  • The total investment income that was received on a current basis during the three months ended March 31, 2021 was received from 24 portfolio companies. This contrasts with 13 portfolio companies generating current income during the three months ended March 31, 2020. The number of companies contributing to investment income increased due to the addition of more income generating portfolio companies in the last year.
  • Interest from portfolio companies – Interest from portfolio companies was approximately 33% higher during the three months ended March 31, 2021 versus the same period in 2020 due to the fact that we originated more income-producing debt investments during the last twelve months. The new debt instruments were originated from Science and Medicine Group Inc. (SMG), Caitec Acquisition, Inc. (Caitec), and Seybert’s Billiards Corporation (Seybert’s). In addition, interest income is higher due to an approximately $88,000 increase in OID income during the three months ended March 31, 2021 due to a first quarter 2021 loan payoff.
  • Interest from other investments – The decrease in interest from other investments is due to lower interest rates received on our cash and cash equivalents, and lower cash balances during the three months ended March 31, 2021versus the same period in 2020.
