Portfolio and Investment Activity

During the second quarter, we experienced some portfolio repayments driven by an elevated amount of liquidity in the markets, which has contributed to a net reduction in our overall portfolio for the quarter. We invested $185.8 million during the three months ended June 30, 2013, and $231.8 million during the six months ended June 30, 2013, a slight increase over the $221.7 million invested during the same six month period one year ago. Sales, repayments and other exits of investment principal totaled $199.1 million during the three months ended June 30, 2013. In conjunction with the early repayments of certain of our investments during the quarter, we recognized $4.5 million in fees and prepayment penalties, increasing our 2013 total to $6.5 million, or $0.09 per share. Although we experienced a net reduction in our overall portfolio this quarter, we are pleased that our exits during the quarter were at par or above, and had a blended IRR, or cash on cash return, in excess of twelve percent.
