On May 8, 2012 the Company invested $5.0 million in a senior secured loan bearing interest at 12.00% to Employment Plus, Inc. Employment Plus, Inc. provides temporary and permanent staffing services to the private sector across multiple industries.Taking into account the $9.25 million of new loan funding subsequent to March 31, 2012, valued at cost and not fair value (which has not yet been determined), the Company’s portfolio assets on a pro forma basis total approximately $75.4 million at May 9, 2012. Management Commentary “With the two new loan originations, totaling $9.25 million, which closed subsequent to March 31, 2012, our loan portfolio has reached its highest level since our IPO in August 2010. With these added investments we are moving closer to full deployment at current liquidity levels, which we expect will result in higher investment income from the larger portfolio,” said John Stuart, chairman and chief executive officer of Full Circle Capital Corp. “We continue to move forward on opportunities in our transaction pipeline. Demand for our flexible uni-tranche lending solutions in our target market of lower middle and smaller market companies remains strong.” “Our investing strategy – to invest in first lien senior secured loans to smaller and lower middle-market companies with a significant level of risk protection and a desirable yield - is reflected in our portfolio metrics. 92% of our portfolio consists of first lien senior secured loans, which gives us the first call on a borrower’s collateral. We remain well positioned for an eventual rise in interest rates with floating rate loans accounting for 91% of the portfolio, which we believe is in the top tier of the BDC universe. In addition, the yield on our loan portfolio remains approximately 13%.” Third Quarter Fiscal 2012 Results The Company’s net asset value at March 31, 2012 was $8.94 per share. For the third fiscal quarter ended March 31, 2012, the Company recorded net unrealized appreciation of $0.4 million resulting primarily from fair value adjustments.
