Stocks in this article: NMFC

New Mountain Finance Corporation (NYSE: NMFC) (the "Company", "we", "us" or "our") today announced its financial results for the quarter ended March 31, 2012 and reported first quarter Adjusted Net Investment Income of New Mountain Finance Holdings, L.L.C. (the “Operating Company”) of $0.32 per share. At March 31, 2012, net asset value (“NAV”) per share was $14.05 and $13.82 on a pro forma basis for the $0.23 per share special dividend declared. The Company also announced that its board of directors declared a second quarter 2012 dividend of $0.34 per share, which will be payable on June 29, 2012 to holders of record as of June 15, 2012. The dividend declared is in-line with the Operating Company’s second quarter 2012 estimated Adjusted Net Investment Income range.

Additionally, during the second quarter, the Operating Company amended its two credit facilities to extend the maturities by one year and to reduce the applicable interest rate spreads on both facilities by 0.25%.

The Company also announced that its board of directors declared a special dividend of $0.23 per share, which will be payable on May 31, 2012 to holders of record as of May 21, 2012. This dividend reflects the realized gains associated with the Company’s exit of two affiliated portfolio companies, Lawson Software, Inc. and Infor Lux Bond Company.

Except where noted otherwise, all financial information shown is that of the Operating Company. Also, please note that share and unit are used interchangeably.

(2) As of March 31, 2012, no actual capital gains incentive fee would be owed under the investment advisory and management agreement, as amended and restated, as cumulative adjusted net realized gains did not exceed cumulative adjusted unrealized depreciation.

The strength of the Operating Company’s unique investment strategy – which focuses on acyclical “defensive growth” companies that are well researched by New Mountain Capital, L.L.C., a leading private equity firm – is underscored by continued strong credit performance, including the fact that the Operating Company has had only one non-performing loan representing less than 0.4% of the cost of all investments made since its inception in October 2008.
