(NYSE:KED) Kayne Anderson Energy Development Company (the “Company”) today announced its financial results for the quarter ended May 31, 2012.



Investment income totaled $2.5 million for the quarter and consisted primarily of net dividends and distributions and interest income. The Company received $4.9 million of cash dividends and distributions, of which $3.8 million was treated as a return of capital during the period. During the quarter, the Company received $1.5 million of interest income, of which $0.4 million was paid-in-kind interest from ProPetro Services, Inc. (“ProPetro”). The Company also received $0.6 million of paid-in-kind distributions, of which $0.4 million was from VantaCore Partners LP (“VantaCore”). These paid-in-kind distributions are not included in investment income, but are reflected as an unrealized gain.

Operating expenses totaled $2.4 million, including $1.5 million of investment management fees; $0.6 million of interest expense and $0.3 million of other operating expenses. Interest expense included $0.1 million of amortization of debt issuance costs. Investment management fees were equal to an annual rate of 1.75% of average total assets.

The Company’s net investment income totaled $0.04 million and included a deferred income tax expense of $0.03 million.

The Company had net realized gains from investments of $2.9 million, after taking into account a deferred income tax expense of $1.8 million.

The Company had a net change in unrealized losses from investments of $18.2 million. The net change consisted of $28.9 million of unrealized losses and a deferred income tax benefit of $10.7 million.

The Company had a decrease in net assets resulting from operations of $15.3 million. This decrease was comprised of net investment income of $0.04 million; net realized gains of $2.9 million; and net unrealized losses of $18.2 million, as noted above.


As of May 31, 2012, the Company’s net asset value was $235.2 million or $22.68 per share. This represents a decrease of $1.86 per share for the quarter.


As of May 31, 2012, the Company had long-term investments of $321.4 million, of which approximately 56% were public MLPs and other public equity securities, 26% were private MLPs and other private equity securities and 18% were debt securities. The Company’s long-term investments consisted of 47 portfolio companies.


As of May 31, 2012, the Company had $79.0 million of borrowings under its credit facility (at an interest rate of 2.27%), which represented 63.1% of its borrowing base of $125.2 million (69.7% of its borrowing base attributable to quoted securities). At the same date, the Company’s asset coverage ratio under the Investment Company Act of 1940 was 398%. The maximum amount that the Company can borrow under its credit facility is limited to the lesser of the commitment amount of $85.0 million or its borrowing base. As of July 19, 2012, the Company had $80.0 million borrowed under its credit facility and had $5.4 million in cash. Outstanding borrowings represented 61.1% of the borrowing base of $131.0 million (67.5% of its borrowing base attributable to quoted securities).


On June 28, 2012, the Company declared a distribution of $0.41 per share for the quarter ended May 31, 2012, which was paid on July 20, 2012 to stockholders of record on July 13, 2012. This distribution represents an increase of 5.1% from the prior quarter’s distribution of $0.39 per share and an increase of 7.9% from the distribution for the quarter ended May 31, 2011.


The Company estimates its portfolio will generate dividends, distributions, and interest income of approximately $6.9 million in the next quarter. This estimate includes cash distributions of $1.5 million per quarter for Direct Fuels. The estimate also includes distributions of $0.6 million per quarter from VantaCore, which is based on only the cash distribution the Company expects to receive, on average, over the next four quarters of $0.275 per common and preferred A unit. Unlike prior guidance, the Company’s estimate does not include payment-in-kind distributions that the Company expects to receive on VantaCore’s common and preferred A units. The Company’s guidance does not reflect any changes in cash distributions made by MLPs or changes in interest rates based on the movement in LIBOR rates since May 31, 2012.

      Average AnnualYield (1)(2)  
Private MLPs (3)(4)             $   80           11.0 %    
Public MLPs and Other Public Equity (4)                 176           7.2      
Debt Investments (5)(6)                 58           10.6      
(1) Average yields include return of capital distributions. Return of capital distributions are reported as a reduction to gross dividends and distributions to arrive at net investment income reported under generally accepted accounting principles.
(2) Average yields for Public MLPs and Other Public Equity are based on the most recently declared distributions as of May 31, 2012. Amounts invested for Private MLPs are based on May 31, 2012 valuations.
(3) The amount invested excludes the Company’s equity investment in ProPetro (valued at $7.5 million as of May 31, 2012), which does not pay a dividend.
(4) Amounts are pro forma for a partial distribution the Company expects to receive related to the $4.8 million incremental investment in VantaCore. The Company made this investment on June 8, 2012 and, as a result, will only receive approximately 25% of the distribution with respect to VantaCore’s second quarter. The investment was funded with proceeds from the sale of public MLPs and other public equity. The amounts in the table above are pro forma for the sale of these public securities.
(5) The average yield includes straight-line amortization of the purchase price discounts/premiums through the expected maturity.
(6) The amount invested includes the Company’s $12.8 million debt investment in ProPetro. This investment pays paid-in-kind interest at an annual rate of 13.0%.

Management Fees and Other Operating Expenses – Management fees are estimated to be approximately $1.44 million per quarter. Other operating expenses are estimated to be approximately $0.40 million per quarter.

Interest Expense – Interest expense is estimated to be approximately $0.46 million per quarter based on $82.5 million borrowed under the Company’s credit facility, assuming a 30-day LIBOR rate of 0.24% and a spread of 2.00%.

Based on the foregoing assumptions, the Company is expected to generate net distributable income (“NDI”) per share of $0.44 to $0.45 in the third quarter of fiscal 2012.
