Management Commentary

“In fiscal 2014, we believe Full Circle Capital made significant progress by successfully expanding and diversifying its investment platform,” said John Stuart, Chairman and Co-Chief Executive Officer of Full Circle Capital Corporation. “During the year we added Gregg Felton, an experienced credit veteran, as Chief Investment Officer of Full Circle Advisors and as President and Co-CEO of the Company. We raised capital in both the debt and equity capital markets through efficient issuances and most recently amended and expanded our senior revolving line of credit. With these pieces in place, we believe that Full Circle Capital has enhanced its competitive positioning in our target middle market. We ended the year with the largest investment portfolio ($125.2 million) since our initial public offering four years ago and with the greatest quarterly origination volume in our history during the fourth fiscal quarter ($44.2 million).”

Gregg Felton commented, “Since I joined Full Circle Capital last November, we have successfully increased the pipeline of attractive investment opportunities and have expanded the investment team with several important additions. We believe that our expanded investment team will allow us to continue to increase the pace of production as we have only recently begun to build a more robust pipeline of investment opportunities in the healthcare and real estate verticals. We have also broadened our investment approach to include increased participation in privately originated club deals as well as secondary purchases which allow us to opportunistically exploit market inefficiencies."

"We are pleased with the recent portfolio growth and believe we are well positioned for significant additional growth while we work to resolve certain legacy issues in our portfolio. As we continue to scale our business, we expect to benefit from increasing operational efficiencies. In order to accelerate the realization of these efficiencies, Full Circle Advisors has agreed to reimburse Full Circle Capital for operating expenses above 1.50% in fiscal 2015 and above 1.75% in fiscal 2016 and beyond. We believe the Company’s operating expenses will then be at a level more consistent with its larger industry peers. With the portfolio growth we anticipate, we believe that our shareholders will directly benefit from increased diversification as well as the additional operating expense efficiencies."
