LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES
As of May 31, 2014, the Company had $105.0 million of borrowings under its credit facility (at an interest rate of 1.78%), which represented 46.6% of its borrowing base of $225.2 million. At the same date, the Company’s asset coverage ratio under the Investment Company Act of 1940 was 445%.
As of July 24, 2014, the Company had $3.3 million of cash and $102.0 million of borrowings under its credit facility (at an interest rate of 1.75%), which represented 42.8% of its borrowing base of $238.1 million. At the same date, the Company’s asset coverage ratio under the Investment Company Act of 1940 was 478%.
On June 26, 2014, the Company declared a distribution of $0.515 per share for the quarter ended May 31, 2014, which was paid on July 18, 2014.
The Company’s guidance is based on its portfolio as of July 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 second quarter 2014 distribution of $1.17 per unit, and VantaCore Partners LP (“VantaCore”), which is based on distributions of $1.05 million. Distributions from VantaCore are based on the cash distributions the Company expects to receive, on average, over the next four quarters of $0.367 per common unit and preferred A unit and $0.3825 per preferred B unit. The Company’s guidance does not include $0.288 million per quarter of non-cash distributions that the Company expects to receive on the VantaCore common and preferred A units it holds. The Company’s guidance does not reflect changes in cash distributions made by MLPs since May 31, 2014 (except the distribution from Emerge as noted above).
|Public MLPs and Other Public Equity||$ 570||5.3%|
|Private MLP (VantaCore)||32||13.2|
|(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 distributions paid during KED’s fiscal second quarter. Amount invested and average yield for VantaCore are based on May 31, 2014 valuations.|
Management Fees and Other Operating Expenses – Management fees are estimated to be approximately $2.19 million for the quarter. Other operating expenses are estimated to be approximately $0.33 million per quarter.
Interest Expense – Interest expense is estimated to be $0.46 million for the quarter, based on interest incurred through July 24, 2014 and an estimated average balance of $104 million for the remainder of the quarter.
Based on the foregoing assumptions, the Company expects to generate adjusted net distributable income (“adjusted NDI”) per share of $0.535 to $0.545 in the third quarter of fiscal 2014. The Company’s guidance incorporates a distribution of $1.17 per unit from Emerge, which is one of 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. The Company’s guidance is based on average quarterly cash distributions from VantaCore over the next twelve months. Actual quarterly distributions received will fluctuate over this time period. As a result, the Company’s quarterly adjusted NDI will vary based on quarterly distributions paid by Emerge and VantaCore.
