Share Repurchase ProgramIn August 2015, the Company's Board of Directors authorized an increase in the amount of shares of its common stock that may be repurchased under its existing share repurchase program from one million shares to two million shares. For the quarter ended September 30, 2015, the Company repurchased 472,407 shares under its share repurchase program at a weighted average price of $3.19 per share. The shares repurchased were accretive to net asset value as of June 30, 2015 by $0.02 per share. Subsequent to the quarter end, the Company repurchased an additional 290,780 shares under the share repurchase program as of November 6, 2015 at a weighted average share price of $3.16. "We funded a few select investments during our first fiscal quarter 2016 that we believe are properly aligned between reward and acquired risk, while receiving $13 million in repayments throughout the quarter from several of the companies in our portfolio," said Gregg Felton, President and Chief Executive Officer of Full Circle Capital Corporation. "With the waiver by our investment adviser, which is in place throughout fiscal 2016, we once again ensured that we were able to cover our monthly distributions with sufficient net investment income." "In addition, while we are always seeking additional accretive investments, we saw an opportunity in the quarter to repurchase shares and utilized capital through a 10b5-1 plan to repurchase nearly 475,000 shares in the quarter," added Mr. Felton. "We have continued to repurchase shares subsequent to the quarter end under our share repurchase program as we believe the repurchases represent one of our most attractive uses of capital at the currently discounted share price. Looking ahead, we continue to be mindful of market dislocations and expect to be selective in deploying the capital raised earlier this year," concluded Mr. Felton.
