Fifth Street Finance Corp. Announces Quarter Ended June 30, 2012 Financial Results

The increase in our total investment income for the quarter ended June 30, 2012 as compared to the quarter ended June 30, 2011 was primarily attributable to a higher average level of outstanding debt investments, which was principally due to a net increase of 10 debt investments in our portfolio and fee income related to debt payoffs, partially offset by amortization payments received and a decrease in the weighted average yield on our debt investments from 12.64% to 12.13% during the year-over-year period.

Expenses for the quarters ended June 30, 2012 and June 30, 2011 were $19.3 million and $15.9 million, respectively. Expenses increased during the quarter ended June 30, 2012 as compared to the quarter ended June 30, 2011 primarily due to increases in the base management fee, the incentive fee and interest expense.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

As of June 30, 2012, we had $105.7 million in cash and cash equivalents, portfolio investments (at fair value) of $1.20 billion, $5.9 million of interest and fees receivable, $150.0 million of SBA debentures payable, $228.5 million of borrowings outstanding under our credit facilities, $115.0 million of convertible senior notes payable and unfunded commitments of $96.0 million.

As of September 30, 2011, we had $67.6 million in cash and cash equivalents, portfolio investments (at fair value) of $1.12 billion, $6.8 million of interest and fees receivable, $150.0 million of SBA debentures payable, $178.0 million of borrowings outstanding under our credit facilities, $135.0 million of convertible senior notes payable and unfunded commitments of $108.8 million.
