Malon Wilkus

Pete, thanks, and thanks everyone for joining us. This third quarter, I have to tell you, was a frustrating quarter for us, because we experienced very consistent net operating income, consistent with our last quarter. But as you'll see, we of course had depreciation which was driven predominantly by multiples and spreads in the industry as opposed to performance of our portfolio of companies.

So let's start at Slide 3. You can see the $0.19 net operating income per share, $65 million of total. We had a nice 10.3% effective yield on our debt assets. And just to remind folks, our cost of borrowing at American Capital on average is at 4.2%.
