“We are pleased with our strong results for the third quarter, which marks our second quarter as a public company,” said TCP Capital Corp.’s Chairman and CEO, Howard Levkowitz. “The portfolio’s performance and the effective deployment of the remaining proceeds from our April IPO and other liquidity enabled us to generate higher net investment income of $0.43 per share. Our third quarter net investment income more than covers our fourth quarter dividend, which clearly demonstrates the earnings power of our portfolio. With net leverage of 0.56x, and approximately $71 million in liquidity at the end of the third quarter, we have room to grow the TCPC portfolio.”
