PROSPECT CAPITAL CORPORATION AND SUBSIDIARY
NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
March 31, 2009
(Unaudited)
(In thousands, except share and per share data)

Note 1. Organization

References herein to “we”, “us” or “our” refer to Prospect Capital Corporation and its subsidiary unless the context specifically requires otherwise.

We were formerly known as Prospect Energy Corporation, a Maryland corporation. We were organized on April 13, 2004 and were funded in an initial public offering (“IPO”), completed on July 27, 2004. We are a closed-end investment company that has filed an election to be treated as a Business Development Company (“BDC”), under the Investment Company Act of 1940 (the “1940 Act”). As a BDC, we have qualified and have elected to be treated as a regulated investment company (“RIC”), under Subchapter M of the Internal Revenue Code. We invest primarily in senior and subordinated debt and equity of companies in need of capital for acquisitions, divestitures, growth, development, project financings, recapitalizations, and other purposes.

On May 15, 2007, we formed a wholly-owned subsidiary, Prospect Capital Funding, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company, for the purpose of holding certain of our loan investments in the portfolio which are used as collateral for our credit facility.

Note 2. Significant Accounting Policies

The following are significant accounting policies consistently applied by us:

Basis of Presentation

These interim financial statements, which are not audited, have been prepared in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”) for interim financial information and pursuant to the requirements for reporting on Form 10-Q and Article 6 or 10 of Regulation S-X, as appropriate.

Use of Estimates

The preparation of GAAP financial statements requires us to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of income and expenses during the reported period. Changes in the economic environment, financial markets, creditworthiness of our portfolio companies and any other parameters used in determining these estimates could cause actual results to differ, and these differences could be material.

Basis of Consolidation

Under the 1940 Act rules, the regulations pursuant to Article 6 of Regulation S-X and the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants’ Audit and Accounting Guide for Investment Companies, we are precluded from consolidating any entity other than another investment company or an operating company which provides substantially all of its services and benefits to us. Our financial statements include our accounts and the accounts of Prospect Capital Funding, LLC, our only wholly-owned, closely-managed subsidiary that is also an investment company. All intercompany balances and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation.

23


Investment Classification

We are a non-diversified company within the meaning of the 1940 Act. We classify our investments by level of control. As defined in the 1940 Act, control investments are those where there is the ability or power to exercise a controlling influence over the management or policies of a company. Control is generally deemed to exist when a company or individual possesses or has the right to acquire within 60 days or less, a beneficial ownership of 25% or more of the voting securities of an investee company. Affiliated investments and affiliated companies are defined by a lesser degree of influence and are deemed to exist through the possession outright or via the right to acquire within 60 days or less, beneficial ownership of 5% or more of the outstanding voting securities of another person.

Investments are recognized when we assume an obligation to acquire a financial instrument and assume the risks for gains or losses related to that instrument. Investments are derecognized when we assume an obligation to sell a financial instrument and forego the risks for gains or losses related to that instrument. Specifically, we record all security transactions on a trade date basis. Investments in other, non-security financial instruments are recorded on the basis of subscription date or redemption date, as applicable. Amounts for investments recognized or derecognized but not yet settled are reported as receivables for investments sold and payables for investments purchased, respectively, in the Consolidated Statements of Assets and Liabilities.

Investment Valuation

Our Board of Directors has established procedures for the valuation of our investment portfolio. These procedures are detailed below.

Investments for which market quotations are readily available are valued at such market quotations.

For most of our investments, market quotations are not available. With respect to investments for which market quotations are not readily available or when such market quotations are deemed not to represent fair value, our Board of Directors has approved a multi-step valuation process each quarter, as described below:

1) Each portfolio company or investment is reviewed by our investment professionals with the independent valuation firm;
 
      2)       the independent valuation firm engaged by our Board of Directors conducts independent appraisals and makes their own independent assessment;
 
3) the audit committee of our Board of Directors reviews and discusses the preliminary valuation of our Investment Adviser and that of the independent valuation firm; and
 
4) the Board of Directors discusses valuations and determines the fair value of each investment in our portfolio in good faith based on the input of our Investment Adviser, the respective independent valuation firm and the audit committee.

Investments are valued utilizing a market approach, an income approach, or both approaches, as appropriate. The market approach uses prices and other relevant information generated by market transactions involving identical or comparable assets or liabilities (including a business). The income approach uses valuation techniques to convert future amounts (for example, cash flows or earnings) to a single present value amount (discounted) calculated based on an appropriate discount rate. The measurement is based on the net present value indicated by current market expectations about those future amounts. In following these approaches, the types of factors that we may take into account in fair value pricing our investments include, as relevant: available current market data, including relevant and applicable market trading and transaction comparables, applicable market yields and multiples, security covenants, call protection provisions, information rights, the nature and realizable value of any collateral, the portfolio company’s ability to make payments, its earnings and discounted cash flows, the markets in which the portfolio company does business, comparisons of financial ratios of peer companies that are public, M&A comparables, the principal market and enterprise values, among other factors.

In September 2006, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 157, “Fair Value Measurements” (“FAS 157”). FAS 157 defines fair value, establishes a framework for measuring fair value in GAAP and expands disclosures about fair value measurements. This statement is effective for financial statements issued for fiscal years beginning after November 15, 2007 and interim periods

24


within those years. We have adopted this statement on a prospective basis beginning in the quarter ended September 30, 2008. Adoption of this statement did not have a material effect on our financial statements for the quarters ended September 30, 2008, and December 31, 2008, or for the current quarter ended March 31, 2009.

FAS 157 classifies the inputs used to measure these fair values into the following hierarchy:

Level 1: Quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities, accessible by us at the measurement date.

Level 2: Quoted prices for similar assets or liabilities in active markets, or quoted prices for identical or similar assets or liabilities in markets that are not active, or other observable inputs other than quoted prices.

Level 3: Unobservable inputs for the asset or liability.

In all cases, the level in the fair value hierarchy within which the fair value measurement in its entirety falls has been determined based on the lowest level of input that is significant to the fair value measurement. Our assessment of the significance of a particular input to the fair value measurement in its entirety requires judgment and considers factors specific to each investment. The changes to GAAP from the application of FAS 157 relate to the definition of fair value, framework for measuring fair value, and the expanded disclosures about fair value measurements. FAS 157 applies to fair value measurements already required or permitted by other standards. In accordance with FAS 157, the fair value of our investments is defined as the price that we would receive upon selling an investment in an orderly transaction to an independent buyer in the principal or most advantageous market in which that investment is transacted.

In April 2009, FASB issued Staff Position No. 157-4, “Determining Fair Value When the Volume and Level of Activity for the Asset or Liability Have Significantly Decreased and Identifying Transactions That Are Not Orderly” (“157-4”). 157-4 provides further clarification for the application of FAS 157 in markets that are not active and provides additional guidance for determining when the volume of trading level of activity for an asset or liability has significantly decreased and for identifying circumstances that indicate a transaction is not orderly. 157-4 is effective for interim and annual reporting periods ending after June 15, 2009. Since 157-4 does not change the fair value measurement principles set forth in FAS 157, we are considering its adoption and estimate that it will not affect the our financial position or results of operations.

Valuation of Other Financial Assets and Financial Liabilities

In February 2007, FASB issued Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 159, “The Fair Value Option for Financial Assets and Financial Liabilities - including an amendment of FASB Statement No. 115” (“FAS 159”). FAS 159 permits an entity to elect fair value as the initial and subsequent measurement attribute for many of assets and liabilities for which the fair value option has been elected and similar assets and liabilities measured using another measurement attribute. This statement is effective for financial statements issued for fiscal years beginning after November 15, 2007, and interim periods within those years. We have adopted this statement on July 1, 2008 and have elected not to value some assets and liabilities at fair value as would be permitted by FAS 159.

Revenue Recognition

Realized gains or losses on the sale of investments are calculated using the specific identification method.

Interest income, adjusted for amortization of premium and accretion of discount, is recorded on an accrual basis. Origination, closing and/or commitment fees associated with investments in portfolio companies are accreted into interest income over the respective terms of the applicable loans. Upon the prepayment of a loan or debt security, any prepayment penalties and unamortized loan origination, closing and commitment fees are recorded as interest income.

Dividend income is recorded on the ex-dividend date.

Structuring fees and similar fees are recognized as income as earned, usually when paid. Structuring fees, excess deal deposits, net profits interests and overriding royalty interests are included in other income.

25


Loans are placed on non-accrual status when principal or interest payments are past due 90 days or more or when there is reasonable doubt that principal or interest will be collected. Accrued interest is generally reversed when a loan is placed on non-accrual status. Interest payments received on non-accrual loans may be recognized as income or applied to principal depending upon management’s judgment. Non-accrual loans are restored to accrual status when past due principal and interest is paid and in management’s judgment, are likely to remain current.

Federal and State Income Taxes

We have elected to be treated as a regulated investment company and intend to continue to comply with the requirements of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 (the “Code”), applicable to regulated investment companies. We are required to distribute at least 90% of our investment company taxable income and intend to distribute (or retain through a deemed distribution) all of our investment company taxable income and net capital gain to stockholders; therefore, we have made no provision for income taxes. The character of income and gains that we will distribute is determined in accordance with income tax regulations that may differ from GAAP. Book and tax basis differences relating to stockholder dividends and distributions and other permanent book and tax differences are reclassified to paid-in capital.

If we do not distribute (or are not deemed to have distributed) at least 98% of our annual taxable income in the calendar year earned, we will generally be required to pay an excise tax equal to 4% of the amount by which 98% of our annual taxable income exceeds the distributions from such taxable income for the year. To the extent that we determine that our estimated current year annual taxable income will be in excess of estimated current year dividend distributions from such taxable income, we accrue excise taxes, if any, on estimated excess taxable income as taxable income is earned using an annual effective excise tax rate. The annual effective excise tax rate is determined by dividing the estimated annual excise tax by the estimated annual taxable income. During the quarter ended December 31, 2008, we elected to retain a portion of our annual taxable income and paid $533 for the excise tax with the filing of the return in March 2009.

We adopted Financial Accounting Standards Board Interpretation No. 48, Accounting for Uncertainty in Income Taxes (‘‘FIN 48’’). FIN 48 provides guidance for how uncertain tax positions should be recognized, measured, presented, and disclosed in the financial statements. FIN 48 requires the evaluation of tax positions taken or expected to be taken in the course of preparing our tax returns to determine whether the tax positions are ‘‘more-likely-than-not’’ of being sustained by the applicable tax authority. Tax positions not deemed to meet the more-likely-than-not threshold are recorded as a tax benefit or expense in the current year. Adoption of FIN 48 was applied to all open tax years as of July 1, 2007. The adoption of FIN 48 did not have an effect on our net asset value, financial condition or results of operations as there was no liability for unrecognized tax benefits and no change to our beginning net asset value. As of March 31, 2009 and for the three and nine months then ended, we did not have a liability for any unrecognized tax benefits. Management’s determinations regarding FIN 48 may be subject to review and adjustment at a later date based upon factors including, but not limited to, an on-going analysis of tax laws, regulations and interpretations thereof.

Dividends and Distributions

Dividends and distributions to common stockholders are recorded on the ex-dividend date. The amount, if any, to be paid as a dividend is approved by our Board of Directors each quarter and is generally based upon our management’s estimate of our earnings for the quarter. Net realized capital gains, if any, are distributed at least annually.

Financing Costs

We record origination expenses related to our credit facility as deferred financing costs. These expenses are deferred and amortized as part of interest expense using the straight-line method over the stated life of the facility.

We record registration expenses related to shelf filings as prepaid assets. These expenses consist principally of Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) registration, legal and accounting fees incurred through March 31, 2009 that are related to the shelf filings that will be charged to capital upon the receipt of the capital or charged to expense if not completed.

26


Guarantees and Indemnification Agreements

We follow FASB Interpretation Number 45, “Guarantor’s Accounting and Disclosure Requirements for Guarantees, Including Indirect Guarantees of Indebtedness of Others” (“FIN 45”). FIN 45 elaborates on the disclosure requirements of a guarantor in its interim and annual financial statements about its obligations under certain guarantees that it has issued. It also requires a guarantor to recognize, at the inception of a guarantee, for those guarantees that are covered by FIN 45, the fair value of the obligation undertaken in issuing certain guarantees. FIN 45 did not have a material effect on the financial statements. Refer to Note 7 and Note 10 for further discussion of guarantees and indemnification agreements.

Per Share Information

Net increase in net assets resulting from operations per common share are calculated using the weighted average number of common shares outstanding for the period presented. Diluted net increase in net assets resulting from operations per share are not presented as there are no potentially dilutive securities outstanding.

Reclassifications

Certain reclassifications have been made in the presentation of prior consolidated financial statements to conform to the presentation as of and for the three and nine months ended March 31, 2009.

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

In March 2008, the FASB issued Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 161, “Disclosures about Derivative Instruments and Hedging Activities – an amendment of FASB Statement No. 133” (“FAS 161”). FAS 161 is intended to improve financial reporting for derivative instruments by requiring enhanced disclosure that enables investors to understand how and why the entity uses derivatives, how derivatives are accounted for, and how derivatives affect an entity’s results of operations, financial position, and cash flows. FAS 161 becomes effective for fiscal years beginning after November 15, 2008; therefore, is applicable for our fiscal year beginning July 1, 2009. Our management does not believe that the adoption of FAS 161 will have a material impact on our financial statements.

In March 2008, the FASB issued Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No.162, “The Hierarchy of Generally Accepted Accounting Principles” (“FAS 162”). FAS 162 identifies the sources of accounting principles and the framework for selecting the principles to be used in the preparation of financial statements of nongovernmental entities that are presented in conformity with GAAP. This statement is effective 60 days following the SEC’s approval of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board amendments to AU Section 411, The Meaning of Present Fairly in Conformity With Generally Accepted Accounting Principles.

Note 7. Related Party Agreements and Transactions

Investment Advisory Agreement

We have entered into an investment advisory and management agreement (the “Investment Advisory Agreement”) with Prospect Capital Management (the “Investment Adviser”) under which the Investment Adviser, subject to the overall supervision of our Board of Directors, manages the day-to-day operations of, and provides investment advisory services to, us. Under the terms of the Investment Advisory Agreement, our Investment Adviser: (i) determines the composition of our portfolio, the nature and timing of the changes to our portfolio and the manner of implementing such changes, (ii) identifies, evaluates and negotiates the structure of the investments we make (including performing due diligence on our prospective portfolio companies); and (iii) closes and monitors investments we make.

The Investment Adviser’s services under the Investment Advisory Agreement are not exclusive, and it is free to furnish similar services to other entities so long as its services to us are not impaired. For providing these services the Investment Adviser receives a fee from us, consisting of two components: a base management fee and an incentive fee. The base management fee is calculated at an annual rate of 2.00% on our gross assets. For services currently rendered under the Investment Advisory Agreement, the base management fee is payable quarterly in arrears. The base management fee is calculated based on the average value of our gross assets at the end of the two most recently completed calendar quarters and appropriately adjusted for any share issuances or repurchases during the current calendar quarter.

The total base management fees incurred to the favor of the Investment Adviser for the three months ended March 31, 2009 and March 31, 2008 were $2,977, and $2,388, respectively. The fees incurred for the nine months ended March 31, 2009 and March 31, 2008 were $8,740, and $6,366, respectively.

The incentive fee has two parts. The first part, the income incentive fee, is calculated and payable quarterly in arrears based on our pre-incentive fee net investment income for the immediately preceding calendar quarter. For this purpose, pre-incentive fee net investment income means interest income, dividend income and any other income (including any other fees (other than fees for providing managerial assistance), such as commitment, origination, structuring, diligence and consulting fees and other fees that we receive from portfolio companies) accrued during the calendar quarter, minus our operating expenses for the quarter (including the base management fee, expenses payable under the Administration Agreement described below, and any interest expense and dividends paid on any issued and outstanding preferred stock, but excluding the incentive fee). Pre-incentive fee net investment income includes, in the case of investments with a deferred interest feature (such as original issue discount, debt instruments with payment in kind interest and zero coupon securities), accrued income that we have not yet received in cash. Pre-incentive fee net investment income does not include any realized capital gains, realized capital losses or unrealized capital appreciation or depreciation. Pre-incentive fee net investment income, expressed as a rate of return on the value of our net assets at the end of the immediately preceding calendar quarter, is compared to a “hurdle rate” of 1.75% per quarter (7.00% annualized).

The net investment income used to calculate this part of the incentive fee is also included in the amount of the gross assets used to calculate the 2.00% base management fee. We pay the Investment Adviser an income incentive fee with respect to our pre-incentive fee net investment income in each calendar quarter as follows:

  • no incentive fee in any calendar quarter in which our pre-incentive fee net investment income does not exceed the hurdle rate;
     
  • 100.00% of our pre-incentive fee net investment income with respect to that portion of such pre-incentive fee net investment income, if any, that exceeds the hurdle rate but is less than 125.00% of the quarterly hurdle rate in any calendar quarter (8.75% annualized assuming a 7.00% annualized hurdle rate); and
     
  • 20.00% of the amount of our pre-incentive fee net investment income, if any, that exceeds 125.00% of the quarterly hurdle rate in any calendar quarter (8.75% annualized assuming a 7.00% annualized hurdle rate).

These calculations are appropriately prorated for any period of less than three months and adjusted for any share issuances or repurchases during the current quarter.

31


The second part of the incentive fee, the capital gains incentive fee, is determined and payable in arrears as of the end of each calendar year (or upon termination of the Investment Advisory Agreement, as of the termination date), and equals 20.00% of our realized capital gains for the calendar year, if any, computed net of all realized capital losses and unrealized capital depreciation at the end of such year. In determining the capital gains incentive fee payable to the Investment Adviser, we calculate the aggregate realized capital gains, aggregate realized capital losses and aggregate unrealized capital depreciation, as applicable, with respect to each investment that has been in its portfolio. For the purpose of this calculation, an “investment” is defined as the total of all rights and claims which maybe asserted against a portfolio company arising from our participation in the debt, equity, and other financial instruments issued by that company. Aggregate realized capital gains, if any, equals the sum of the differences between the aggregate net sales price of each investment and the aggregate cost basis of such investment when sold or otherwise disposed. Aggregate realized capital losses equal the sum of the amounts by which the aggregate net sales price of each investment is less than the aggregate cost basis of such investment when sold or otherwise disposed. Aggregate unrealized capital depreciation equals the sum of the differences, if negative, between the aggregate valuation of each investment and the aggregate cost basis of such investment as of the applicable calendar year-end. At the end of the applicable calendar year, the amount of capital gains that serves as the basis for our calculation of the capital gains incentive fee involves netting aggregate realized capital gains against aggregate realized capital losses on a since-inception basis and then reducing this amount by the aggregate unrealized capital depreciation. If this number is positive, then the capital gains incentive fee payable is equal to 20.00% of such amount, less the aggregate amount of any capital gains incentive fees paid since inception.

For the three months ended March 31, 2009 and March 31, 2008, $2,930 and $3,230, respectively, of income incentive fees were incurred. For the nine months ended March 31, 2009 and March 31, 2008, $11,795 and $7,861, respectively, of income incentive fees were incurred. No capital gains incentive fees were incurred for the three or nine months ended March 31, 2009 and March 31, 2008.

Administration Agreement

We have also entered into an Administration Agreement with Prospect Administration, LLC (“Prospect Administration” or the “Administrator”) under which Prospect Administration, among other things, provides (or arranges for the provision of) administrative services and facilities for us. For providing these services, we reimburse Prospect Administration for our allocable portion of overhead incurred by Prospect Administration in performing its obligations under the Administration Agreement, including rent and our allocable portion of the costs of our Chief Compliance Officer and Chief Financial Officer and their respective staffs. Under this agreement, Prospect Administration furnishes us with office facilities, equipment and clerical, bookkeeping and record keeping services at such facilities. Prospect Administration also performs, or oversees the performance of, our required administrative services, which include, among other things, being responsible for the financial records that we are required to maintain and preparing reports to our stockholders and reports filed with the SEC. In addition, Prospect Administration assists us in determining and publishing our net asset value, overseeing the preparation and filing of our tax returns and the printing and dissemination of reports to our stockholders, and generally oversees the payment of our expenses and the performance of administrative and professional services rendered to us by others. Under the Administration Agreement, Prospect Administration also provides on our behalf managerial assistance to those portfolio companies to which we are required to provide such assistance. The Administration Agreement may be terminated by either party without penalty upon 60 days written notice to the other party. Prospect Administration is a wholly owned subsidiary of our Investment Adviser.

The Administration Agreement provides that, absent willful misfeasance, bad faith or negligence in the performance of its duties or by reason of the reckless disregard of its duties and obligations, Prospect Administration and its officers, managers, partners, agents, employees, controlling persons, members and any other person or entity affiliated with it are entitled to indemnification from us for any damages, liabilities, costs and expenses (including reasonable attorneys’ fees and amounts reasonably paid in settlement) arising from the rendering of Prospect Administration’s services under the Administration Agreement or otherwise as administrator for us.

Overhead expenses allocated to us by Prospect Administration amounted to $588 and $588 for the three months ended March 31, 2009 and March 31, 2008, respectively. These allocations totaled $1,764 and $1,108 for the nine months ended March 31, 2009 and March 31, 2008, respectively.

32


Prospect Administration, pursuant to the approval of our Board of Directors, has engaged Vastardis Fund Services LLC (“Vastardis”) to serve as our sub-administrator to perform certain services required of Prospect Administration. Under the sub-administration agreement, Vastardis provides us with office facilities, equipment, clerical, bookkeeping and record keeping services at such facilities. Vastardis also conducts relations with custodians, depositories, transfer agents, dividend disbursing agents, other stockholder servicing agents, accountants, attorneys, underwriters, brokers and dealers, corporate fiduciaries, insurers, banks and such other persons in any such other capacity deemed to be necessary or desirable. Vastardis provides reports to the Administrator and the Directors of its performance of obligations and furnishes advice and recommendations with respect to such other aspects of our business and affairs as it shall determine to be desirable. Under the revised and renewed sub-administration agreement, Vastardis also provided the service of William E. Vastardis as our Chief Financial Officer (“CFO”). We compensate Vastardis for providing us these services by the payment of an asset-based fee with a $400 annual minimum, payable monthly. Our service agreement was amended on September 24, 2008 so that Mr. Vastardis no longer served as our CFO effective as of November 11, 2008. At that time, Brian H. Oswald, a managing director at Prospect Administration, assumed the role of CFO.

Vastardis does not provide any advice or recommendation relating to the securities and other assets that we should purchase, retain or sell or any other investment advisory services to us. Vastardis is responsible for the financial and other records that either the Administrator on our behalf or we are required to maintain and prepares reports to stockholders, and reports and other materials filed with the SEC. In addition, Vastardis assists us in determining and publishing our net asset value, overseeing the preparation and filing of our tax returns, and the printing and dissemination of reports to our stockholders, and generally overseeing the payment of our expenses and the performance of administrative and professional services rendered to us by others.

Under the sub-administration agreement, Vastardis and its officers, partners, agents, employees, controlling persons, members, and any other person or entity affiliated with Vastardis, are not liable to the Administrator or us for any action taken or omitted to be taken by Vastardis in connection with the performance of any of its duties or obligations or otherwise as sub-administrator for the Administrator on our behalf. The agreement also provides that, absent willful misfeasance, bad faith or negligence in the performance of Vastardis’ duties or by reason of the reckless disregard of Vastardis’ duties and obligations, Vastardis and its officers, partners, agents, employees, controlling persons, members, and any other person or entity affiliated with Vastardis are entitled to indemnification from the Administrator and us. All damages, liabilities, costs and expenses (including reasonable attorneys’ fees and amounts reasonably paid in settlement) incurred in or by reason of any pending, threatened or completed action, suit, investigation or other proceeding (including an action or suit by or in the right of the Administrator or us or our security holders) arising out of or otherwise based upon the performance of any of Vastardis’ duties or obligations under the agreement or otherwise as sub-administrator for the Administrator on our behalf are subject to such indemnification.

On April 30, 2009 we gave a 60-day notice to Vastardis of termination of our agreement to provide sub-administration services effective June 30, 2009. We anticipate entering into a new consulting services agreement for the period from July 1, 2009 until the filing our 10-K for the year ending on June 30, 2009. We anticipate paying Vastardis a total of $30 for services in conjunction with preparation of the Form 10-K under the new agreement.

Managerial Assistance

As a business development company, we offer, and must provide upon request, managerial assistance to certain of our portfolio companies. This assistance could involve, among other things, monitoring the operations of our portfolio companies, participating in board and management meetings, consulting with and advising officers of portfolio companies and providing other organizational and financial guidance. For the three months ended March 31, 2009 and March 31, 2008, managerial assistance fees amounted to $215 and $245, respectively. For the nine months ended March 31, 2009 and March 31, 2008, managerial assistance fees amounted to $631 and $693, respectively. These fees are paid to the Administrator.

Note 9. Litigation

From time to time, we may become involved in various investigations, claims and legal proceedings that arise in the ordinary course of our business. These matters may relate to intellectual property, employment, tax, regulation, contract or other matters. The resolution of these matters as they arise will be subject to various uncertainties and, even if such claims are without merit, could result in the expenditure of significant financial and managerial resources.

On December 6, 2004, Dallas Gas Partners, L.P. (“DGP”) served us with a complaint filed November 30, 2004 in the U.S. District for the Southern District of Texas, Galveston Division. DGP alleges that DGP was defrauded and that we breached our fiduciary duty to DGP and tortiously interfered with DGP’s contract to purchase Gas Solutions, Ltd. (a subsidiary of our portfolio company, GSHI) in connection with our alleged agreement in September 2004 to loan DGP funds with which DGP intended to buy Gas Solutions, Ltd. for approximately $26,000. The complaint sought relief not limited to $100,000. On November 30, 2005, U.S. Magistrate Judge John R. Froeschner of the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Texas, Galveston Division, issued a recommendation that the court grant our Motion for Summary Judgment dismissing all claims by DGP. On February 21, 2006, U.S. District Judge Samuel Kent of the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Texas, Galveston Division issued an order granting our Motion for Summary Judgment dismissing all claims by DGP, against us. On May 16, 2007, the Court also granted us summary judgment on DGP’s liability to us on our counterclaim for DGP’s breach of a release and covenant not to sue. On January 4, 2008, the Court, Judge Melinda Harmon presiding, granted our motion to dismiss all DGP’s claims asserted against certain of our officers and affiliates. On August 20, 2008, Judge Harmon entered a Final Judgment dismissing all of DGP’s claims. Our damage claims against DGP remain pending.

In May 2006, based in part on unfavorable due diligence and the absence of investment committee approval, we declined to extend a loan for $10,000 to a potential borrower (“plaintiff”). Plaintiff was subsequently sued by its own attorney in a local Texas court for plaintiff’s failure to pay fees owed to its attorney. In December 2006, plaintiff filed a cross-action against us and certain affiliates (the “defendants”) in the same local Texas court, alleging, among other things, tortious interference with contract and fraud. We petitioned the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York (the “District Court”) to compel arbitration and to enjoin the Texas action. In February 2007, our motions were granted. Plaintiff appealed that decision. The arbitration commenced in July 2007 and concluded in late November 2007. Post-hearing briefings were completed in February 2008. On April 14, 2008, the arbitrator rendered an award in our favor, rejecting all of plaintiff’s claims. On April 18, 2008, we filed a petition before the District Court to confirm the award. On October 8, 2008, the District Court granted our petition to confirm the award, confirmed the awards and subsequently entered judgment thereon in our favor in the amount of $2,288. After filing a defective notice of appeal to the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit on November 5, 2008, plaintiff’s counsel resubmitted a new notice of appeal on January 9, 2009. The plaintiff subsequently requested that we agree to stipulate to the withdrawal of plaintiff’s appeal to the Second Circuit. Such a stipulation was filed with the Second Circuit on or about April 14, 2009. Based on this stipulation, the Second Circuit issued a mandate terminating the appeal, which was transmitted to the District Court on April 23, 2009.

Note 10. Commitments and Off-Balance Sheet Risks

From time to time, we provide guarantees for portfolio companies for payments to counterparties, usually as an alternative to investing additional capital. Currently, agreements for one guarantee and one contingent indemnification are outstanding which are related to two portfolio companies categorized as Control Investments – Whymore and North Fork; both of these companies have now been consolidated as part of Yatesville. The guarantee is related to Whymore. As of March 31, 2009, this guarantee may amount to $4,300 for equipment leases. The contingent indemnification obligation arose from our acquisition of the assets of Traveler Coal, LLC (“Traveler”), through our subsidiary, North Fork. Specifically, as part of that acquisition, we have agreed to indemnify the seller of those assets for personal guarantees that seller had extended on behalf of Traveler. As of March 31, 2009, the amount of this contingency is $3,673.

We also provide indemnifications to Prospect Administration and to Vastardis in accordance with our respective agreements with those two service providers. These indemnifications are described in further detail in Note 7.

Note 11. Revolving Credit Agreements

On June 6, 2007, we closed on a $200,000 three-year revolving credit facility (as amended on December 31, 2007) with Rabobank Nederland as administrative agent and sole lead arranger (the “Rabobank Facility”). Interest on the Rabobank Facility is charged at LIBOR plus 175 basis points. Additionally, Rabobank charges a fee on the unused portion of the facility. Through November 30, 2007, this fee is assessed at the rate of 37.5 basis points per annum of the amount of that unused portion; after that date, this rate increases to 50.0 basis points per annum if that unused portion is greater than 50% of the total amount of the facility. On November 14, 2008, we entered into a commitment letter with Rabobank to arrange and structure a new dual-rated credit facility. Under the terms of the letter, we agreed to an immediate increase in the current borrowing rate on the Rabobank Facility to LIBOR plus 250 basis points. At March 31, 2009 and June 30, 2008, the investments used as collateral for the Rabobank Facility had aggregate market values of $405,404 and $369,418, respectively. These values represent 73.0% and 74.3% of total investments at fair value, respectively.

We had drawn down $137,567 and $91,167 on the Rabobank Facility as of March 31, 2009 and June 30, 2008, respectively.

Item 2. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations
(All figures in this item are in thousands except share, per share and other data)

References herein to “we,” “us” or “our” refer to Prospect Capital Corporation and its subsidiary unless the context specifically requires otherwise.

The following discussion should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements and notes thereto appearing elsewhere in this quarterly report on Form 10-Q. Historical results set forth are not necessarily indicative of our future financial position and results of operations.

Note on Forward Looking Statements

Some of the statements in this report constitute forward-looking statements, which relate to future events or our future performance or financial condition. The forward-looking statements contained herein involve risks and uncertainties, including statements as to:

  • our future operating results;
     
  • our business prospects and the prospects of our portfolio companies;
     
  • the impact of investments that we expect to make;
     
  • our contractual arrangements and relationships with third parties;
     
  • the dependence of our future success on the general economy and its impact on the industries in which we invest;
     
  • the ability of our portfolio companies to achieve their objectives;
     
  • our expected financings and investments;
     
  • the adequacy of our cash resources and working capital; and
     
  • the timing of cash flows, if any, from the operations of our portfolio companies.

We generally use words such as “anticipates,” “believes,” “expects,” “intends” and similar expressions to identify forward-looking statements. Our actual results could differ materially from those projected in the forward-looking statements for any reason, including the factors set forth in “Risk Factors” and elsewhere in this report.

We have based the forward-looking statements included in this report on information available to us on the date of this report, and we assume no obligation to update any such forward-looking statements. Although we undertake no obligation to revise or update any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, you are advised to consult any additional disclosures that we may make directly to you or through reports that we in the future may file with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”), including any annual reports on Form 10-K, quarterly reports on Form 10-Q and current reports on Form 8-K.

Market Conditions

In 2008 and early 2009, the financial services industry has been negatively affected by turmoil in the global capital markets. What began in 2007 as a deterioration of credit quality in subprime residential mortgages has spread rapidly to other credit markets. Market liquidity and credit quality conditions are significantly weaker today than two years ago.

We believe that Prospect Capital is well positioned to navigate through these adverse market conditions. As a BDC, we are limited to a maximum 1 to 1 debt to equity ratio, and as of March 31, 2009, our debt to equity ratio was 0.31 to 1. As of March 31, 2009, we have borrowed $137,567 against our credit facility with Rabobank Nederland. The revolving period for this facility continues until June 6, 2009, with a term out maturity on June 6, 2010, and we expect to enter into a new extended facility prior to this date. While we are optimistic, we cannot guarantee the completion of such extension.

38


We also continue to generate liquidity through public stock offerings and the realization of portfolio investments. On March 19, 2009 and April 27, 2009, we completed public stock offerings for 1.5 million and 3.68 million shares of our common stock at $8.20 per share and $7.75 per share, raising $12,300 and $28,520 of gross proceeds, respectively. Our loan to Diamondback Operating L.P. was repaid in January 2009. As is typical for our portfolio, we currently have investments in various stages in the exit process that continue to draw interest from prospective buyers.

Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates

Our discussion and analysis of our financial condition and results of operations are based upon our financial statements, which have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”). The preparation of these financial statements requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, revenues and expenses. Changes in the economic environment, financial markets and any other parameters used in determining such estimates could cause actual results to differ materially. In addition to the discussion below, our critical accounting policies are further described in the notes to the financial statements.

Basis of Consolidation

Under the 1940 Act rules, the regulations pursuant to Article 6 of Regulation S-X, and the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants’ Audit and Accounting Guide for Investment Companies, we are precluded from consolidating any entity other than another investment company or an operating company which provides substantially all of its services and benefits to us. Our March 31, 2009, June 30, 2008, and March 31, 2008 financial statements include our accounts and the accounts of Prospect Capital Funding, LLC, our only wholly-owned, closely-managed subsidiary that is also an investment company. All intercompany balances and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation.

Investment Classification

We are a non-diversified company within the meaning of the 1940 Act. We classify our investments by level of control. As defined in the 1940 Act, control investments are those where there is the ability or power to exercise a controlling influence over the management or policies of a company. Control is generally deemed to exist when a company or individual possesses or has the right to acquire within 60 days or less, a beneficial ownership of 25% or more of the voting securities of an investee company. Affiliated investments and affiliated companies are defined by a lesser degree of influence and are deemed to exist through the possession outright or via the right to acquire within 60 days or less, beneficial ownership of 5% or more of the outstanding voting securities of another person.

Investments are recognized when we assume an obligation to acquire a financial instrument and assume the risks for gains or losses related to that instrument. Investments are derecognized when we assume an obligation to sell a financial instrument and forego the risks for gains or losses related to that instrument. Specifically, we record all security transactions on a trade date basis. Investments in other, non-security financial instruments are recorded on the basis of subscription date or redemption date, as applicable. Amounts for investments recognized or derecognized but not yet settled are reported as Receivables for investments sold and Payables for investments purchased, respectively, in the Consolidated Statements of Assets and Liabilities.

Investment Valuation

Our Board of Directors has established procedures for the valuation of our investment portfolio. These procedures are detailed below.

Investments for which market quotations are readily available are valued at such market quotations.

39


For most of our investments, market quotations are not available. With respect to investments for which market quotations are not readily available or when such market quotations are deemed not to represent fair value, our Board of Directors has approved a multi-step valuation process each quarter, as described below:

1) Each portfolio company or investment is reviewed by our investment professionals with the independent valuation firm;
           
2) the independent valuation firm engaged by our Board of Directors conducts independent appraisals and makes their own independent assessment;
 
3) the audit committee of our Board of Directors reviews and discusses the preliminary valuation of our Investment Adviser and that of the independent valuation firm; and
 
4) the Board of Directors discusses the valuations and determines the fair value of each investment in our portfolio in good faith based on the input of our Investment Adviser, the independent valuation firm and the audit committee.

Investments are valued utilizing a market approach, an income approach, or both approaches, as appropriate. The market approach uses prices and other relevant information generated by market transactions involving identical or comparable assets or liabilities (including a business). The income approach uses valuation techniques to convert future amounts (for example, cash flows or earnings) to a single present value amount (discounted) calculated based on an appropriate discount rate. The measurement is based on the net present value indicated by current market expectations about those future amounts. In following these approaches, the types of factors that we may take into account in fair value pricing our investments include, as relevant: available current market data, including relevant and applicable market trading and transaction comparables, applicable market yields and multiples, security covenants, call protection provisions, information rights, the nature and realizable value of any collateral, the portfolio company’s ability to make payments, its earnings and discounted cash flows, the markets in which the portfolio company does business, comparisons of financial ratios of peer companies that are public, M&A comparables, the principal market and enterprise values, among other factors.

In September, 2006, the Financial Accounting Standards Board issued Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 157, “Fair Value Measurements” (“FAS 157”). FAS 157 defines fair value, establishes a framework for measuring fair value in GAAP, and expands disclosures about fair value measurements. This statement is effective for financial statements issued for fiscal years beginning after November 15, 2007, and interim periods within those years. We have adopted this statement on a prospective basis beginning in the quarter ended September 30, 2008. Adoption of this statement did not have a material effect on our financial.

FAS 157 classifies the inputs used to measure these fair values into the following hierarchy:

Level 1: Quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities, accessible by the Company at the measurement date.

Level 2: Quoted prices for similar assets or liabilities in active markets, or quoted prices for identical or similar assets or liabilities in markets that are not active, or other observable inputs other than quoted prices.

Level 3: Unobservable inputs for the asset or liability.

In all cases, the level in the fair value hierarchy within which the fair value measurement in its entirety falls has been determined based on the lowest level of input that is significant to the fair value measurement. Our assessment of the significance of a particular input to the fair value measurement in its entirety requires judgment and considers factors specific to each investment.

The changes to generally accepted accounting principles from the application of FAS 157 relate to the definition of fair value, framework for measuring fair value, and the expanded disclosures about fair value measurements. FAS 157 applies to fair value measurements already required or permitted by other standards. In accordance with FAS 157, the fair value of our investments is defined as the price that we would receive upon selling an investment in an orderly transaction to an independent buyer in the principal or most advantageous market in which that investment is transacted.

40


Revenue Recognition

Realized gains or losses on the sale of investments are calculated using the specific identification method.

Interest income, adjusted for amortization of premium and accretion of discount, is recorded on an accrual basis. Origination, closing and/or commitment fees associated with investments in portfolio companies are accreted into interest income over the respective terms of the applicable loans. Upon the prepayment of a loan or debt security, any prepayment penalties and unamortized loan origination, closing and commitment fees are recorded as interest income.

Dividend income is recorded on the ex-dividend date.

Structuring fees and similar fees are recognized as income as earned, usually when paid. Structuring fees, excess deal deposits, net profits interests and overriding royalty interests are included in other income.

Loans are placed on non-accrual status when principal or interest payments are past due 90 days or more or when there is reasonable doubt that principal or interest will be collected. Accrued interest is generally reversed when a loan is placed on non-accrual status. Interest payments received on non-accrual loans may be recognized as income or applied to principal depending upon management’s judgment. Non-accrual loans are restored to accrual status when past due principal and interest is paid and in management’s judgment, are likely to remain current. At March 31, 2009, four loan investments were on non-accrual status: Appalachian Energy Holdings LLC (“AEH”), Integrated Contract Services, Inc. (“Integrated” or “ICS”), Wind River Resources Corp. and Wind River II Corp. (“Wind River”), and Change Clean Energy, Inc. f/k/a Worcester Energy Partners, Inc., Worcester Energy Co., Inc., (“WECO”) and Biochips LLC (collectively “Biomass”). The loan principal of these loans amounted to $69,491 at March 31, 2009.

Introduction

We are a financial services company that primarily lends and invests in middle market, privately-held companies. We are a closed-end investment company that has filed an election to be treated as a business development company under the 1940 Act. We invest primarily in senior and subordinated debt and equity of companies in need of capital for acquisitions, divestitures, growth, development, project financing and recapitalization. We work with the management teams or financial sponsors to seek investments with historical cash flows, asset collateral or contracted pro-forma cash flows.

We seek to be a long-term investor with our portfolio companies. Since the fiscal year ended June 30, 2007, we have invested primarily in industries related to the industrial/energy economy. Since then, we have widened our strategy to focus in other sectors of the economy and continue to diversify our portfolio holdings.

Statement of Assets and Liabilities Overview

During the nine months ended March 31, 2009, net assets have increased by $14,401 from $429,623 as of June 30, 2008 to $444,024 as of March 31, 2009. This net increase in assets resulted from a $35,853 increase from operations and $15,067 from capital share transactions, offset by $36,519 in dividends declared to our stockholders. During this nine-month period we recognized net investment income of $47,182, net realized gains on investments of $1,661 and a decrease in net assets due to changes in unrealized appreciation/depreciation of investments of $12,990. The result was the $35,853 increase in net assets resulting from operations.

The aggregate fair value of our portfolio investments was $555,041 and $497,530 as of March 31, 2009 and June 30, 2008, respectively. During the nine months ended March 31, 2009, our net cost of investments increased by $70,501, or 14.2%, as we invested in three new investments and follow-on investments while we sold one investment, received repayment on another two investments, and settled the net profit interests on a third investment. This increased level of investment was financed primarily by increased borrowings on our credit facility. At March 31, 2009, we were invested in 31 long-term portfolio investments (including a net profits interest remaining in Charlevoix).

Investment Activity

During the nine months ended March 31, 2009, we completed three new investments and several follow-on investments in existing portfolio companies, totaling approximately $89,052. The more significant of these investments are described briefly in the following:

On August 1, 2008, we provided $7,400 in debt financing to Castro Cheese Company, Inc. (“Castro”), based in Houston, Texas. Castro is a leading manufacturer, marketer and distributor of Hispanic cheeses and creams.

On August 4, 2008, we provided $15,000 in debt financing to support the take-private acquisition of the TriZetto Group (“TriZetto”). TriZetto is a leading healthcare information technology company.

On August 21, 2008, we provided a $26,000 senior secured debt financing and co-invested $2,300 in equity alongside Great Point Partners, LLC (“Great Point”) in its growth recapitalization of BNN Holdings Corp. d/b/a Biotronic NeuroNetwork (“Biotronic”), based in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Biotronic is the largest independent national provider of intra-operative neurophysiological monitoring services.

On July 23, 2008, September 8, 2008, and November 7, 2008, and January 21, 2009, we made follow-on secured debt investments of $400, $2,700, and $2,900, and $1,500, respectively in Iron Horse Coiled Tubing, Inc. (“Iron Horse”) in support of the build out of additional equipment.

On December 10, 2008 we made a follow-on investment of $5,000 in Gas Solutions Holdings, Inc. (“GSHI” or “Gas Solutions”) for the repayment of third-party bank senior credit facility.

During the nine months ended March 31, 2009, we closed-out three positions which are briefly described below.

On July 3, 2008, we exercised our warrant for 4,960,585 shares of common stock in Deep Down, Inc. As permitted by the terms of the warrant, we elected to make this exercise on a cashless basis entitling us to 2,618,129 common shares. On August 1, 2008, we sold all the shares acquired receiving $1,649 of net proceeds.

On August 27, 2008, R-V Industries, Inc. (“R-V”) repaid the $7,526 debt outstanding to us.

On January 21, 2009, Diamondback repaid the $9,200 debt outstanding to us. We continue to hold net profit interests on this investment.

On September 30, 2008, we settled our net profits interests (“NPIs”) in IEC Systems LP (“IEC”) and Advanced Rig Services LLC (“ARS”) with the companies for a combined $12,576. IEC and ARS originally issued the NPIs to us when we loaned a combined $25,600 to IEC and ARS on November 20, 2007. In conjunction with the NPI realization, we simultaneously reinvested the $12,576 as incremental senior secured debt in IEC and ARS. The incremental debt will amortize over the period ending November 20, 2010.

Investment Holdings

As of March 31, 2009, we continue to pursue our investment strategy. Despite our name change to “Prospect Capital Corporation” and the termination of our policy to invest at least 80% of our net assets in energy companies in May 2007, we currently have a concentration of investments in companies in the energy and energy related industries. Some of the companies in which we invest have relatively short or no operating histories. These companies are and will be subject to all of the business risk and uncertainties associated with any new business enterprise, including the risk that these companies may not reach their investment objective or the value of our investment in them may decline substantially or fall to zero.

Our portfolio had an annualized current yield of 15.1% and 16.8% across all our long-term debt and certain equity investments as of March 31, 2009 and March 31, 2008, respectively. This yield includes interest from all of our long-term investments as well as dividends from GSHI and NRG Manufacturing, Inc. (“NRG”). The 1.7% decrease is primarily due to non-accrual loans. For the three months ended March 31, 2009, total foregone interest related to loans on non-accrual status was $3,940. As of March 31, 2009, we reversed $322 of interest income recognized in prior periods related to AEH and Wind River. We expect the current yield to continue to decline over time as

43


we increase the size of the portfolio. Monetization of other equity positions that we hold is not included in this yield calculation. In each 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. Some of these equity positions include features such as contractual minimum internal rates of returns, preferred distributions, flip structures and other features expected to generate additional investment returns, as well as contractual protections and preferences over junior equity, in addition to the yield and security offered by our cash flow and collateral debt protections.

As of March 31, 2009, we own controlling interests in Ajax Rolled Ring & Machine (“Ajax”), C&J Cladding, LLC (“C&J”), GSHI, Integrated, Iron Horse, NRG, R-V, CCEI, and Yatesville. We also own affiliated interests in Appalachian Energy Holdings, LLC (“AEH”) and Biotronic.

Investment Valuation

In determining the fair value of our portfolio investments at March 31, 2009, the Audit Committee considered valuations from the independent valuation firm and from management having an aggregate range of $512,598 to $583,857, excluding money market investments.

In determining the range of value for debt instruments, management and the independent valuation firm generally shadow rated the investment and then based upon the range of ratings, determined appropriate yields to maturity for a loan rated as such. A discounted cash flow analysis was then prepared using the appropriate yield to maturity as the discount rate, yielding the ranges. For equity investments, the enterprise value was determined by applying EBITDA multiples for similar recent investment sales. For stressed equity investments, a liquidation analysis was prepared.

The Board of Directors looked at several factors in determining where within the range to value the asset including: recent operating and financial trends for the asset, independent ratings obtained from third parties and comparable multiples for recent sales of companies within the industry. The composite of all these analysis, applied to each investment, was a total valuation of $555,041, excluding money market investments.

Our investments are generally lower middle market companies, outside of the financial sector, with less than $30,000 of annual EBITDA. We believe our market has experienced less volatility than others because we believe there are more buy and hold investors who own these less liquid investments. In addition, the middle market relies on less leverage than the large capitalization marketplace, which we believe will result in less financial distress.

During the fiscal year ended June 30, 2008 and continuing through March 31, 2009, several general economic factors have occurred which have affected the valuation of our investment portfolio.

Generally, interest rates offered on loans similar to those that we have originated have changed since our investments were consummated. While we do not believe that there has been any diminution of credit quality, general changes in current interest rates would affect the price for which we could sell these assets and we have adjusted our fair value of these assets to reflect such changes. During the nine months ended March 31, 2009, we have adjusted the value of twelve debt investments based upon such general changes in market interest rates including: Biotronic, C&J, Castro, Freedom Marine Services LLC, H&M Oil & Gas, LLC, Maverick Healthcare, LLC, Qualitest Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (“Qualitest”), Regional Management Corp. (“RMC”), Resco Products, Inc. (“Resco”), Shearer’s Foods, Inc., Stryker Energy, LLC, and TriZetto.

Five debt investments were made to companies that are not performing in line with budget expectations as of March 31, 2009. For these investments (AEH, Conquest Cherokee, LLC, Deb Shops, Inc. (“Deb Shops”), Iron Horse, and Wind River Resources Corp. and Wind River II Corp.) we expect full recovery. We used higher market interest rates to take into account the increased credit risk and general changes in current interest rates for similar assets to determine their fair value.

Control investments offer increased risk and reward over straight debt investments. Operating results and changes in market multiples can result in dramatic changes in values from quarter to quarter. Significant downturns in operations can further result in our looking to recoveries on sales of assets rather than the enterprise value of the investment. Several control assets in our portfolio are under enhanced scrutiny by our senior management and our Board of Directors and are discussed below.

Gas Solutions Holdings, Inc.

GSHI is an investment that we made in September 2004 and own 100% of the equity. GSHI is a midstream gathering and processing business located in East Texas. GSHI has improved its operations and we have experienced an increase in revenue, gross margin, and EBITDA (the latter two metrics on both an absolute and a percentage of revenues basis) over the past four years.

During the past year, we have been in discussions with multiple interested purchasers for Gas Solutions. While we wish to unlock the value in Gas Solutions, we do not wish to enter into any agreement at any time that does not recognize the long term value we see in Gas Solutions. As a well hedged midstream asset, which will generate predictable and consistent cash flows to us, Gas Solutions is a valuable asset that we wish to sell

46


at a value-maximizing price, or not at all. We continue discussions with interested parties, but have a patient approach toward the process. In addition, a sale of the assets, rather than the stock of GSHI, might result in a significant tax liability at the GSHI level which will need to be paid prior to any distribution to us.

In late March 2008, Royal Bank of Canada provided a $38,000 term loan to Gas Solutions II Ltd, a wholly owned subsidiary of GSHI, the proceeds of which were used to refinance all of Citibank’s approximately $8,000 of outstanding senior secured debt as well as to make a $30,000 cash distribution to GSHI. We had non-recourse access to this cash at GSHI. In December 2008, we lent an additional $5,000 to GSHI which enabled the company to repay the loan to the Royal Bank of Canada. Upon repayment, we now hold a first lien position in GSHI, improving our leverage position with our lender.

In early May 2008, Gas Solutions II Ltd purchased a series of propane puts at $0.10 out of the money and at prices of $1.53 per gallon and $1.394 per gallon covering the periods May 1, 2008 through April 30, 2009 and May 1, 2009 through April 30, 2010, respectively. These hedges have been executed at close to the highest historical market propane prices ever achieved. Such hedges preserve the upside of Gas Solutions II Ltd to benefit from potential future changes in commodity prices. GSHI has generated approximately $26,172 of EBITDA for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2008, an increase of 67.1% from the 2007 results.

In determining the value of GSHI, we have utilized several valuation techniques to determine the value of the investment. These techniques offer a wide range of values. Our Board of Directors has determined the value to be $85,186 for our debt and equity positions at March 31, 2009 based upon a combination of a discounted cash flow analysis, a public comparables analysis and review of recent indications of interest. GSHI is valued $55,164 above its amortized cost at March 31, 2009, compared to the $36,321 unrealized gain recorded at June 30, 2008.

Integrated Contract Services, Inc.

Our investment in ICS is under enhanced review by our senior management team due to existing payment and covenant defaults under the contracts governing these investments. Prior to January 2009, ICS owned the assets of ESA Environmental Specialists, Inc. (“ESA”), and 100% of the stock of The Healing Staff (“THS”). ESA originally defaulted under our contract governing our investment in ESA, prompting us to commence foreclosure actions with respect to certain ESA assets in respect of which we have a priority lien. In response to our actions, ESA filed voluntarily for reorganization under the bankruptcy code on August 1, 2007. On September 20, 2007 the U.S. Bankruptcy Court approved a Section 363 Asset Sale from ESA to us. To complete this transaction, we contributed our ESA debt to a newly-formed entity, ICS, and provided funds for working capital on October 9, 2007. In return for the ESA debt, we received senior secured debt in ICS of equal amount to our ESA debt, preferred stock of ICS, and 49% of the ICS common stock. ICS subsequently ceased operations and assigned the collateral back to us. ICS is in default of both payment and financial covenants. During September and October 2007, we provided $1,170 to THS for working capital.

In January 2009, we foreclosed on the real and personal property of ICS. Through this foreclosure process, we gained 100% ownership of THS and certain ESA assets. Based upon an analysis of the liquidation value of the ESA assets and the enterprise value of THS, our Board of Directors reaffirmed the fair value of our investment in ICS at $5,000, a reduction of $11,690 from its amortized cost at March 31, 2009, compared to the $11,464 unrealized loss recorded at June 30, 2008.

Change Clean Energy Holdings Inc. (“CCEHI”) and Change Clean Energy, Inc. (“CCEI”), f/k/a Worcester Energy Partners, Inc.

CCEI is under enhanced review by our senior management team due to poor operating results since investment. We have installed a new manager at CCEI. CCEI ceased operations temporarily in the first quarter of 2009. During the quarter, we determined that it was appropriate to institute foreclosure proceedings against the co-borrowers of our debt to take full control of the assets. In anticipation of such proceedings CCEHI was established and on March 11, 2009, the foreclosure was completed and the assets were assigned to a wholly owned subsidiary of CCEHI. CCEI ceased operations temporarily in the first quarter of 2009. During the nine months ended March 31, 2009, we provided additional funding of $4,211 to Biomass to fund ongoing operations. Our Board of Directors, upon recommendation from senior management, has set the value of the CCEI investment based upon an enterprise valuation at $6,000 at March 31, 2009, a reduction of $37,134 from its amortized cost at March 31, 2009, compared to the $22,141 unrealized loss recorded at June 30, 2008.

Yatesville Coal Holdings, Inc.

As we previously discussed, all of our coal holdings are now held in one consolidated entity, Yatesville. Yatesville had begun to show improvement since the consolidation of the coal holdings in one entity under common management, but this came to a halt at the end of December 2008 when the company exhausted its permitted reserves. During the nine months ended March 31, 2009, we provided additional funding of $7,570 to Yatesville to fund ongoing operations. We will continue to value Yatesville on an asset basis. Our Board of Directors, upon recommendation from senior management, has set the value of the Yatesville investment at $25,848 at March 31, 2009, a reduction of $21,465 from its amortized cost at March 31, 2009, compared to the $14,694 unrealized loss recorded at June 30, 2008.

Capitalization

Our investment activities are capital intensive and the availability and cost of capital is a critical component of our business. We capitalize our business with a combination of debt and equity. Our debt is currently consists of a revolving credit facility availing us of the ability to borrow up to $200,000 of debt and our equity capital is currently comprised entirely of common equity.

We had $137,567 and $91,167 of borrowings at March 31, 2009 and June 30, 2008, respectively. These borrowings were made against a credit facility in place at Rabobank Nederland. The maintenance of this facility requires us to pay a fee for the amount not drawn upon. Through November 30, 2007, this fee is assessed at the rate of 37.5 basis points per annum of the amount of that unused portion; after that date, this rate increased to 50.0 basis points per annum if that unused portion was greater than 50% of the total amount of the facility. The following table shows the facility amounts and outstanding borrowings at March 31, 2009 and June 30, 2008:

During the quarter ended March 31, 2009, we completed a public offering and raised $12,300 of additional equity by issuing 1.5 million shares of our common stock below net asset value diluting shareholder value by $0.32 per share. . The following table shows the calculation of net asset value per share as of March 31, 2009 and June 30, 2008:

At March 31, 2009, we had 31,286,128 of our common stock issued and outstanding.

Results of Operations

For the three months ended March 31, 2009 and March 31, 2008, the net increase (decrease) in net assets resulting from operations was $15,331 and ($1,259), respectively, representing $0.51 and ($0.05) per share, respectively. We experienced a net realized and unrealized gain of $3,611 or approximately $0.12 per share in the three months ended March 31, 2009. This compares with the net realized and unrealized loss of $14,178 during the three months ended March 31, 2008 or approximately $0.59 per share.

For the nine months ended March 31, 2009 and March 31, 2008 (or for the periods since the beginning of our respective fiscal years) the net increase in net assets resulting from operations was $35,853 and $3,605, respectively, representing $1.21 and $0.16 per share, respectively. We experienced a net realized and unrealized loss of $11,329 or approximately $0.38 per share in the nine months ended March 31, 2009. This compares with the net realized and unrealized loss of $27,839 during the nine months ended March 31, 2008 or approximately $1.24 per share.

While we seek to maximize gains and minimize losses, our investments in portfolio companies can expose our capital to risks greater than those we may anticipate as these companies are typically not issuing securities rated investment grade, have limited resources, have limited operating history, are generally private companies with limited operating information available and are likely to depend on a small core of management talents. Changes in any of these factors can have a significant impact on the value of the portfolio company.

Investment Income

We generate revenue in the form of interest income on the debt securities that we own, dividend income on any common or preferred stock that we own, and amortized loan origination fees on the structuring of new deals. Our investments, if in the form of debt securities, will typically have a term of one to ten years and bear interest at a fixed or floating rate. To the extent achievable, we will seek to collateralize our investments by obtaining security interests in our portfolio companies’ assets. We also may acquire minority or majority equity interests in our portfolio companies, which may pay cash or in-kind dividends on a recurring or otherwise negotiated basis. In addition, we may generate revenue in other forms including prepayment penalties and possibly consulting fees. Any such fees generated in connection with our investments are recognized as earned.

Investment income consists of interest income, including accretion of loan origination fees and prepayment penalty fees, dividend income and other income, including net profits interest, overriding royalties interest and structuring fees. The following table details the various components of investment income and the related levels of debt investments for the three and nine months ended March 31, 2009 and March 31, 2008:
