BlackRock Kelso Capital Corporation Declares Regular Quarterly Dividend Of $0.26 Per Share, Announces September 30, 2012 Quarterly Financial Results

At September 30, 2012, our portfolio consisted of 50 portfolio companies and was invested 59% in senior secured loans, 16% in senior secured notes 13% in unsecured or subordinated debt securities, 12% in equity investments, and less than 1% in cash and cash equivalents. Our average portfolio company investment at amortized cost was approximately $21.6 million and our average portfolio company investment at amortized cost, excluding investments below $5.0 million, was approximately $25.9 million at September 30, 2012. At September 30, 2012, 0.1% of our total debt investments at fair value (or 0.8% at amortized cost) was on non-accrual status.

The weighted average yields of the debt and income producing equity securities in our portfolio at their current cost basis were 12.2% at September 30, 2012 and 11.9% at September 30, 2011. The weighted average yields on our senior secured loans and other debt securities at their current cost basis were 11.6% and 13.5%, respectively, at September 30, 2012, versus 11.7% and 12.1% at September 30, 2011. Yields exclude common equity investments, preferred equity investments with no stated dividend rate, short-term investments and cash and cash equivalents.

At September 30, 2012, we had $3.0 million in cash and cash equivalents, $165.4 million available under our senior secured, multi-currency credit facility, and $1.5 million payable for investments purchased.

Results of Operations

Results comparisons are for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2012 and 2011.

Investment Income

Investment income totaled $40.7 million and $109.4 million, respectively, for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2012, compared to $33.2 million and $95.5 million for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2011. Of these totals, fee income for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2012 was $9.0 million and $16.3 million, respectively, versus $5.1 million and $16.4 million for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2011. Of the current period amount, $8.7 million represents one-time fees collected in conjunction with the early repayment of certain portfolio company investments. The increase in investment income for the nine months ended September 30, 2012 reflects a larger overall portfolio as a result of the deployment of debt capital under our credit facility. During the nine months ended September 30, 2012, we invested $101.7 million in four new portfolio companies and $136.8 million in several existing portfolio companies. Although investments at their current cost basis at September 30, 2012 were slightly lower than that at December 31, 2011, the average balance of our total investments at amortized cost for the nine month period ended September 30, 2012 was $1,114.8 million, compared to $1,002.1 million for the nine month period ended September 30, 2011. This increase in the average balance also contributed to our increase in investment income. Capital structuring and amendment fees associated with new investments for the current nine month period totaled $3.3 million.
