UPDATES ON PRIVATE PORTFOLIO COMPANIES

Updates on the Company’s private portfolio companies are available on the Company’s website at www.kaynefunds.com/ked/portfolio-companies/.

LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES

As of November 30, 2013, the Company had $85.0 million of borrowings under its credit facility (at an interest rate of 2.17%), which represented 47.0% of its borrowing base of $181.0 million (47.1% of its borrowing base attributable to quoted securities). At the same date, the Company’s asset coverage ratio under the Investment Company Act of 1940 was 469%.

On January 28, 2014, the Company renewed its credit facility with a syndicate of lenders. The new credit facility has a three-year commitment, maturing on January 28, 2017, and a total commitment amount of $120.0 million, which is an increase of $25.0 million from the prior credit facility. The interest rate on the facility is LIBOR plus 1.60% (prior to the renewal, the interest rate was LIBOR plus 2.00%). If borrowings exceed the borrowing base attributable to “quoted” securities, the interest rate will increase to LIBOR plus 3.00%. The Company pays a commitment fee of 0.30% per annum on any unused amounts of the credit facility (the fee was 0.50% per annum prior to the renewal).

The maximum amount that the Company can borrow under the credit facility is limited to the lesser of its commitment amount of $120.0 million and its borrowing base. The Company’s borrowing base, subject to certain limitations, is generally calculated by multiplying the fair value of each of the Company’s investments by an advance rate. The total contribution to the Company’s borrowing base from private MLPs is limited to no more than 25% of the total borrowing base, and there is a $12.0 million limit on the borrowing base contribution from any single issuer.

As of January 28, 2014, the Company had $2.0 million of cash and $84.0 million of borrowings under its credit facility (at an interest rate of 1.77%), which represented 40.9% of its borrowing base of $205.5 million (41.0% of its borrowing base attributable to quoted securities). At the same date, the Company’s asset coverage ratio under the Investment Company Act of 1940 was 479%.

QUARTERLY DISTRIBUTION

On January 16, 2014, the Company declared a distribution of $0.50 per share for the quarter ended November 30, 2013, which will be paid on January 31, 2014 to stockholders of record as of January 27, 2014.

GUIDANCE

As a result of significant changes in the portfolio since November 30, 2013, the Company’s guidance is based on its portfolio as of January 24, 2014. The yield information in the table below reflects the distributions paid in the prior quarter, with the exception of Emerge Energy Services LP (“Emerge”), which is based on its fourth quarter distribution of $1.00 per unit, and VantaCore Partners LP (“VantaCore”), which is based on distributions of $0.975 million. Distributions from VantaCore are based on only the cash distributions the Company expects to receive, on average, over the next four quarters of $0.35 per common unit and preferred A unit and $0.3825 per preferred B unit. The Company’s guidance does not include $0.32 million of non-cash distributions that the Company expects to receive on VantaCore’s common and preferred A units. The Company’s guidance does not reflect changes in cash distributions made by MLPs since November 30, 2013 (except the distribution from Emerge as noted above).

(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 Other Public Equity are based on the most recently paid distributions for the third calendar quarter of 2013, other than Emerge. Amount invested and average yield for VantaCore are based on November 30, 2013 valuations.
 

Management Fees and Other Operating Expenses – Management fees are estimated to be approximately $1.80 - $1.85 million for the quarter. Based on total assets as of January 24th, the management fee would equal $1.82 million. Actual management fees will vary based on average total assets during the period. Other operating expenses are estimated to be approximately $0.33 million per quarter.

Interest Expense – Interest expense is estimated to be $0.43 - $0.46 million for the quarter, based on the average balance of $82 million through January 24th (at a spread of 2.0%) and an estimated balance of $90 million for the remainder of the quarter (at a spread of 1.6%).

Based on the foregoing assumptions, the Company expects to generate net distributable income (“NDI”) per share of $0.53 to $0.54 in the first quarter of fiscal 2014. The Company’s guidance incorporates a distribution of $1.00 per unit from Emerge, which is KED’s largest portfolio investment. Emerge is a variable rate MLP that pays quarterly distributions based on the amount of cash flow generated in such quarter. As a result, the Company’s NDI will vary based on quarterly distributions paid by Emerge.
