Ares Capital Corporation Declares First Quarter 2013 Dividend Of $0.38 Per Share And Announces December 31, 2012 Financial Results

We used the net proceeds of the additional issuance of the October 2022 Notes and the issuance of the 2018 Convertible Notes to repay outstanding debt and for general corporate purposes, which included funding investments in accordance with our investment objective.


For the three months ended December 31, 2012, Ares Capital declared on November 5, 2012 a regular dividend of $0.38 per share and an additional dividend of $0.05 per share for a total of approximately $106.8 million. The record date for these dividends was December 14, 2012 and the dividends were paid on December 28, 2012.


On January 25, 2013, Ares Capital and Ares Capital Funding LLC (“Ares Capital CP”), an indirect wholly owned subsidiary of Ares Capital, entered into an amendment to Ares Capital CP’s revolving funding facility (the “Revolving Funding Facility”). The amendment, among other things, modified the interest charged on the Revolving Funding Facility from the previous applicable spreads of 2.50% over LIBOR and 1.50% over “base rate” (as defined in the agreements governing the Revolving Funding Facility) to applicable spreads ranging from 2.25% to 2.50% over LIBOR and ranging from 1.25% to 1.50% over “base rate,” in each case, determined monthly based on the composition of the borrowing base relative to outstanding borrowings under the facility. After giving effect to the amendment and the relevant borrowing base and amounts outstanding thereunder, the interest charged on the Revolving Funding Facility as of January 25, 2013 was based on a spread over one-month LIBOR of 2.25% or a spread over “base rate” of 1.25%. As of such date, one-month LIBOR was 0.2037% and the “base rate” was 3.25%.

From January 1, 2013 through February 22, 2013, we made new investment commitments of $165 million, of which $162 million were funded. Of these new commitments, 60% were in second lien senior secured loans, 30% were in first lien senior secured loans, 9% were investments in subordinated certificates of the SSLP, the proceeds of which were applied to co-investments with GE to fund first lien senior secured loans through the SSLP, and 1% were in preferred equity securities. Of the $165 million of new investment commitments, 92% were floating rate and 8% were fixed rate. The weighted average yield of debt and other income producing securities funded during the period at amortized cost was 9.5%. We may seek to syndicate a portion of these new investment commitments, although there can be no assurance that we will be able to do so.
