Investment income from debt securities increased 30% to $2.7 million as a result of the continued growth in our debt securities portfolio. Our debt securities portfolio was $143.3 million at June 30, 2012, as compared to $114.7 million at December 31, 2011. Investment income from the subordinated debt we held in various collateralized loan obligation funds increased 66% (approximately $2.2 million) to approximately $5.5 million from approximately $3.3 million in the prior year period. A significant portion of this increase (approximately $1.4 million) is attributable to the four subordinated debt positions in collateralized loan obligation funds managed by Trimaran Advisors, L.L.C. that we acquired in connection with our acquisition of Trimaran Advisors in February 2012. Dividends from our wholly owned asset manager affiliates (Trimaran Advisors and Katonah Debt Advisors, L.L.C.) in the second quarter of 2012 were $1.2 million, as compared to $0.7 million in the second quarter of 2011. The increase resulted from dividends we received from Trimaran Advisors.
