Hercules Technology Growth Capital Announces Quarter-to-Date Q2 2013 Portfolio Update

Stocks in this article: HTGC

Hercules Technology Growth Capital, Inc. (NYSE: HTGC), the leading specialty finance company focused on providing senior secured loans to venture capital-backed companies in technology-related markets, including technology, biotechnology, life science and energy technology (aka cleantech) industries, at all stages of development, today announced its quarter-to-date Q2 2013 portfolio update.

“We are pleased with Hercules’ robust investment portfolio activities for the quarter-to-date, with commitments of approximately $223.4 million. It is important to note, however, the majority of these commitments closed late in the quarter and at the same time our fundings to commitments ratio is moving downward as we institute greater use of funding triggers or performance milestones to mitigate risk,” said Manuel A. Henriquez, Hercules co-founder, chairman and chief executive officer. “As a result, we expect the revenue generation from the funding of these new assets to be fully reflected in our third quarter results.”

“Additionally, so far in 2013, Hercules' portfolio companies have experienced a number of IPO and M&A events. This is a reflection of our team’s proven ability to pick winners and help companies and their venture capital backers achieve critical growth milestones, as well as maximize value for our shareholders,” he continued.
