Second Quarter 2012 Results

The Company had net income of $101.7 million during the second quarter of 2012, or $0.87 per diluted share, compared to net income of $69.1 million, or $0.66 per diluted share, in the first quarter of 2012. During the second quarter of 2012, the Company had Core Earnings of $44.8 million, or $0.38 per diluted share, compared to $41.9 million, or $0.39 per diluted share, in the first quarter of 2012. Core Earnings represents a non-GAAP financial measure and is defined as net income (loss) excluding (i) net realized gain (loss) on investments and termination of swap contracts and (ii) net unrealized appreciation (depreciation) on investments and swap and cap contracts. The $2.9 million quarter-over-quarter increase in Core Earnings was generally the result of the assets settling that were purchased with the proceeds from the February 1, 2012 public offering. The $0.01 quarter-over-quarter decrease in Core Earnings per diluted share was generally the result of a lower interest rate spread net of hedge, which decreased to 1.71% during the second quarter of 2012, compared to 1.88% during the first quarter of 2012.
