The Company’s net investment loss totaled $0.2 million and included a deferred income tax benefit of $0.1 million.

The Company had net realized gains from its investments of $0.04 million.

The Company had net unrealized gains of $26.4 million, which consisted of $41.6 million of unrealized gains from investments and $15.2 million of deferred income tax expense. The majority of these gains are attributable to our investment in International Resource Partners LP (“IRP”), which increased by $35.3 million (90% increase) during the quarter.

The Company had an increase in net assets resulting from operations of $26.2 million. This increase is composed of a net investment loss of $0.2 million, net realized gains of $0.04 million, and net unrealized gains of $26.4 million as noted above.

As of August 31, 2010, the Company’s net asset value was $196.0 million or $19.14 per share. This represents an increase of $2.25 per share or 13.3% compared to $172.5 million or $16.89 per share on May 31, 2010. As of August 31, 2010, the Company had a deferred tax liability of $0.3 million (the fair value of the Company’s investments was in excess of the cost basis of such investments). As of May 31, 2010, the Company had a deferred tax asset of $14.8 million.


As of August 31, 2010, the Company had approximately $7.3 million in cash and cash equivalents. As of October 8, 2010, the Company had approximately $1.9 million in cash and cash equivalents.

As of August 31, 2010, the Company had $52.0 million of borrowings under its Credit Facility (at an interest rate of 2.30%), which represented 66.8% of its borrowing base of $77.8 million (78.8% of its borrowing base attributable to quoted securities).

The maximum amount that the Company can borrow under its Credit Facility is limited to the lesser of the commitment amount of $70.0 million and the borrowing base.


On September 29, 2010, the Company announced a distribution of $0.30 per share for the quarter ended August 31, 2010. This distribution is payable on October 28, 2010 to shareholders of record on October 15, 2010.


Based on the Company’s portfolio of investments and average yields on those investments as of August 31, 2010, the Company estimates dividends, distributions, and interest income will be approximately $5.0 million per quarter. Such estimate does not reflect any changes in cash distributions made by MLPs or changes in interest rates based on the movement in LIBOR rates since August 31, 2010. The estimate includes the $1.4 million per quarter preferred unit distribution from Direct Fuels.
Portfolio Category   Amount Invested($ in millions)   Average AnnualYield (1)(2)
Private MLPs   $126.1   9.2%
Public MLPs and MLP Affiliates   $75.2   6.8%
Fixed Income (3)   $34.7   9.1%
Cash and Cash Equivalents (4)   $4.2   0.1%
        (1)   Average yields include return of capital distributions. Return of capital distributions are reported as a reduction to gross dividends and distributions to arrive at net investment income reported under generally accepted accounting principles.
(2) Average yields for Public MLPs and MLP Affiliates are based on the most recently declared distributions as of August 31, 2010. Amount invested and average yields for Private MLPs are based on August 31, 2010 valuations and distribution rates.
(3) The average yield includes amortization of the purchase price discounts. The amount invested and average yield excludes the Company’s ProPetro investment (the Company does not anticipate receiving cash interest payments on this investment).
(4) Includes repurchase agreements and cash at August 31, 2010 less Q3 2010 distribution of $3.1 million (to be paid on October 28, 2010).

Management Fees and Other Operating Expenses - Management fees are estimated to be approximately $1.1 million per quarter. Other operating expenses are estimated to be approximately $0.45 million per quarter.

Interest Expense - Based on $52.0 million borrowed under the Company’s senior secured revolving credit facility as of August 31, 2010, interest expense is estimated to be approximately $0.32 million per quarter assuming a LIBOR rate of 0.30% and a spread of 2.00%.

Based on the foregoing assumptions, the Company is expected to generate distributable cash flow per share of $0.31 per quarter. Included in this estimate is a $1.4 million distribution of additional preferred units from Direct Fuels. The Company does not expect Direct Fuels to pay cash distributions for the next four quarters.
