In commenting on the Company's results, Bowen Diehl, President and Chief Executive Officer, stated, “We had a very robust quarter of originations, as we closed on six new investments and three follow-on investments during the quarter.  As discussed in recent earnings releases, our deal teams have done an excellent job developing strong relationships and market presence which has resulted in strong deal flow. This quarter, we were also able to originate some interesting new equity co-investment opportunities alongside our first lien loans. In addition, I am pleased to report that credit quality remains strong, with no portfolio companies on non-accrual.  From a capitalization perspective, we continue to diversify our sources of capital in an effort to strengthen our balance sheet.  This quarter we successfully raised an additional $17.0 million in gross proceeds from the December 2022 Notes under our ATM debt distribution agreement.  Additionally, subsequent to quarter end, we opportunistically raised $13.2 million of new equity issuing 700,000 shares of common stock at $18.90 per share.  We were able to execute this capital raise above our NAV and at only a 1.9% discount to our closing stock price on the day before the offering.”

Second Fiscal Quarter 2019 Operating Results
For the quarter ended September 30, 2018, Capital Southwest reported total investment income of $12.6 million, compared to $11.1 million in the prior quarter. The increase in investment income was attributable to an increase in average debt investments outstanding.
For the quarter ended September 30, 2018, total operating expenses (excluding interest expense) remained flat at $3.7 million compared to the prior quarter.
For the quarter ended September 30, 2018, interest expense was $3.1 million, compared to $2.4 million in the prior quarter. The increase in interest expense was due to increased average debt outstanding on the revolving credit facility during the quarter, as well as an increase in the amount of December 2022 Notes outstanding.
For the quarter ended September 30, 2018, total pre-tax net investment income was $5.8 million, compared to $5.0 million in the prior quarter.
For the quarter ended September 30, 2018, there was tax expense of $0.3 million, compared to $0.4 million in the prior quarter.
During the quarter ended September 30, 2018, Capital Southwest recorded total realized and unrealized gains on investments of $1.0 million, compared to $7.0 million in the prior quarter. The net increase in net assets resulting from operations was $6.6 million for the quarter, compared to $11.7 million in the prior quarter.
The Company’s NAV at September 30, 2018 was $18.84 per share, as compared to $18.87 at June 30, 2018. The decrease in NAV from the prior quarter is due to the $0.10 per share supplemental dividend declared and paid in the current quarter, offset by net unrealized gains on the investment portfolio.

Liquidity and Capital Resources
At September 30, 2018, Capital Southwest had approximately $10.2 million in unrestricted cash and money market balances, $127 million of total debt outstanding on its revolving credit facility and $73.4 million, net of unamortized debt issuance costs, in 5.95% Notes due in 2022 (the "December 2022 Notes"). As of September 30, 2018, Capital Southwest had $83.0 million in available borrowings under the revolving credit facility. Regulatory leverage at the end of the quarter was 0.65 to 1.
On June 11, 2018, the Company entered into an "At-The-Market" ("ATM") debt distribution agreement, pursuant to which it may offer for sale, from time to time, up to $50 million in aggregate principal amount of December 2022 Notes through B. Riley FBR, Inc., acting as its sales agent. Sales of the December 2022 Notes may be made in negotiated transactions or transactions that are deemed to be "at the market offerings" as defined in Rule 415 under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, including sales made directly on The Nasdaq Global Select Market, or similar securities exchanges or sales made through a market maker other than on an exchange at prices related to prevailing market prices or at negotiated prices.



During the quarter ended September 30, 2018, the Company sold a total of 671,621 of the December 2022 Notes under the ATM debt distribution agreement, generating approximately $17.0 million in gross proceeds at an effective yield of 5.86%. Cumulative to date, the Company has generated approximately $19.9 million in gross proceeds under the ATM debt distribution agreement.
Additionally, I-45 SLF has total commitments outstanding of $165 million from a group of four bank lenders in its Deutsche Bank led credit facility, which is scheduled to mature in July 2022. As of September 30, 2018, I-45 SLF had $147 million in borrowings outstanding under its credit facility.
Subsequent to quarter end, on October 4, 2018, the Company issued an aggregate of 700,000 shares of the Company's common stock at a net price of $18.90 per share. The total net proceeds of the offerings, before expenses, was approximately $13.2 million. The shares were sold at a 1.9% discount to the prior day closing price and above then current NAV of $18.87.

Share Repurchase Program
On January 25, 2016, Capital Southwest announced that its Board of Directors authorized the repurchase of up to $10.0 million of its common stock at prices significantly below the Company’s net asset value per share as reported in its most recent financial statements. The Board authorized the share repurchase program because it believes that the Company’s common stock may be undervalued from time to time due to market volatility.
During the quarter ended September 30, 2018, the Company did not repurchase any common stock under the program. Cumulative to date, the Company has repurchased a total of 35,911 shares at an average price of $16.37 per share, including commissions paid. The Company currently has approximately $9.4 million available for additional repurchases under the program.

As of September 30, 2018, there were no investments on non-accrual status. Weighted-average annual effective yield is higher than what an investor in shares in our common stock will realize on its investment because it does not reflect our expenses or any sales load paid by an investor (3) Weighted average metrics are calculated using investment cost basis weighting (4) Includes CSWC debt investments only. Calculated as the amount of each portfolio company’s debt (including CSWC’s position and debt senior or pari passu to CSWC’s position, but excluding debt subordinated to CSWC’s position) in the capital structure divided by each portfolio company’s adjusted EBITDA. Management uses this metric as a guide to evaluate relative risk of its position in each portfolio debt investment Page 10
