Financial Condition, Liquidity and Capital Resources
As of June 30, 2010, the company had $174.8 million in cash and cash equivalents. It generated cash primarily from the net proceeds of its IPO as well as cash flows from operations, including interest earned and fees received on subordinated debt, senior secured loans and other income- producing equity securities. In the future, the company may also fund a portion of its investments through borrowing from banks and future equity offerings. It does not expect to incur such debt until the net proceeds of its initial public offering have been substantially invested.
“We are currently in the process of arranging borrowing capacity to leverage our business. We expect to have a credit facility in place before the end of the year,” said Terrence W. Olson, chief operating office and chief financial officer of THL Credit. “While the investments we are making today do not require leverage to meet our return hurdles, prudently leveraging our capital structure is integral to maximizing our long-term returns to shareholders.”
