Capital Southwest Announces Financial Results for Third Fiscal Quarter Ended December 31, 2018
CSWC Reports Pre-Tax Net Investment Income of $0.40 Per Share
Dallas, Texas – February 4, 2019 Capital Southwest Corporation (“Capital Southwest,” “CSWC” or the “Company”) (Nasdaq: CSWC), an internally managed business development company focused on providing flexible financing solutions to support the acquisition and growth of middle market businesses, today announced its financial results for the third fiscal quarter ended December 31, 2018.
Third Quarter Fiscal Year 2019 Financial Highlights
Total Investment Portfolio: $496.7 million
Credit Portfolio of $350.7 million:
86% 1st Lien Secured Debt
$24.7 million in new committed credit investments
One 1st Lien Secured Debt investment currently on non-accrual with a fair value of $8.6 million, representing 1.7% of the total investment portfolio
Equity Portfolio of $82.9 million, excluding investment in I-45 Senior Loan Fund ("I-45 SLF"):
$1.0 million in new equity investments during the quarter
CSWC Investment in I-45 SLF of $63.1 million
I-45 SLF portfolio of $238.7 million
Portfolio consists of 48 issuers: 95% 1st Lien Debt and 5% 2nd Lien Debt
I-45 SLF paid a $2.5 million quarterly dividend to CSWC, an annualized yield of 15.5%
Pre-Tax Net Investment Income of $6.8 million, or $0.40 per weighted average diluted share
Paid $0.36 per share in Regular Dividends, plus $0.10 per share Supplemental Dividend
Total Dividends for the quarter of $0.46 per share
Net Realized and Unrealized Portfolio Depreciation: $2.4 million, or $0.14 per weighted average diluted share
Cash and Cash Equivalents: $10.8 million
Total Net Assets: $317.7 million
Net Asset Value (“NAV”) per Share: $18.43
Weighted Average Yield on Debt Investments: 11.6%



In commenting on the Company's results, Bowen Diehl, President and Chief Executive Officer, stated, “This was an eventful quarter for our company. In addition to growing our Net Investment Income per share by 11% to $0.40 per share, we exited one of our two remaining legacy equity assets at a modest gain, we completed the company’s first ever follow-on equity offering, and we completed the upsize and refinance of our ING Capital-led balance sheet credit facility. Specific to the credit facility, we were able to obtain a significant increase in commitments from our bank lenders, while reducing pricing and the overall cost of the facility. We were also able to incorporate the ability to access the increased leverage allowable under the Small Business Credit Availability Act, passed in 2018. Finally, we opportunistically repurchased shares of our stock through our 10b5-1 program during the time of excessive market volatility that we saw in December.”

Third Quarter Fiscal Year Investment Activities
During the quarter ended December 31, 2018, the Company originated two new investments and one follow-on investment totaling $25.7 million in commitments. New investment transactions that occurred during the quarter ended December 31, 2018 are summarized as follows:
Roseland Management, LLC (d/b/a Precision Spine Care), $10.5 million 1st Lien Senior Secured Debt, $2.0 million Revolving Loan, $1.0 million Common Equity: Precision Spine Care is a provider of a comprehensive suite of medical services focused on spine care and pain management across Northeast Texas.
Ace Gathering, Inc., $10.0 million Split Lien Senior Secured Debt: Ace Gathering, Inc. is a provider of crude oil gathering and reclamation services to oil producers, salt water disposal operators and other service companies throughout Texas.
American Nuts Operations LLC, $2.2 million 1st Lien Senior Secured Debt: American Nuts is an importer, mixer, roaster, and packager of bulk nuts and dried fruit.

Third Fiscal Quarter 2019 Operating Results
For the quarter ended December 31, 2018, Capital Southwest reported total investment income of $13.9 million, compared to $12.6 million in the prior quarter. The increase in investment income was attributable to an increase in average debt investments outstanding.
For the quarter ended December 31, 2018, total operating expenses (excluding interest expense) remained flat at $3.7 million as compared to the prior quarter.
For the quarter ended December 31, 2018, interest expense was $3.3 million, compared to $3.1 million in the prior quarter. The increase in interest expense was due to increased average debt outstanding on the revolving credit facility, an increase in the amount of 5.95% Notes due in 2022 (the "December 2022 Notes") outstanding, and an increase in the weighted average interest rate on the revolving credit facility due to LIBOR.
For the quarter ended December 31, 2018, total pre-tax net investment income was $6.8 million, compared to $5.8 million in the prior quarter.
For the quarter ended December 31, 2018, there was tax expense of $0.1 million, compared to $0.3 million in the prior quarter.
During the quarter ended December 31, 2018, Capital Southwest recorded total net realized and unrealized losses on investments of $2.4 million, compared to total net realized and unrealized gains on investments of $1.0 million



in the prior quarter. For the quarter ended December 31, 2018, this included total net realized gains on investments of $1.9 million and net unrealized depreciation on investments of $4.2 million, of which $2.0 million was the reversal of net unrealized appreciation recognized in prior periods due to realized gains noted above. The net increase in net assets resulting from operations was $4.3 million for the quarter, compared to $6.6 million in the prior quarter.
The Company’s NAV at December 31, 2018 was $18.43 per share, as compared to $18.84 at September 30, 2018. The decrease in NAV from the prior quarter is due to the supplemental dividend of $0.10 per share, net unrealized depreciation on the investment portfolio and dilution caused by the annual grant of restricted stock to employees.

Liquidity and Capital Resources
At December 31, 2018, Capital Southwest had approximately $10.8 million in unrestricted cash and money market balances, $122 million of total debt outstanding on its revolving credit facility and $75.0 million, net of unamortized debt issuance costs, of the December 2022 Notes outstanding. As of December 31, 2018, Capital Southwest had $144.6 million in available borrowings under the revolving credit facility. The debt to equity ratio at the end of the quarter was 0.62 to 1.
In December 2018, the Company entered into the Amended and Restated Senior Secured Revolving Credit Agreement (the "Amended and Restated Agreement"), and a related Amended and Restated Guarantee, Pledge and Security Agreement, to amend and restate its Senior Secured Revolving Credit Facility (the "Credit Facility"). The Amended and Restated Agreement (1) increased the total commitments by $60 million from $210 million to an aggregate total of $270 million, provided by a diversified group of nine lenders, (2) increased the Credit Facility's accordion feature to $350 million under the Credit Facility from new and existing lenders on the same terms and conditions as the existing commitments, (3) reduced the interest rate on borrowings from LIBOR plus 3.00% to LIBOR plus 2.50%, subject to certain conditions as outlined in the Amended and Restated Agreement, (4) reduced the minimum asset coverage with respect to senior securities representing indebtedness from 200% to 150% after the date on which such minimum asset coverage is permitted to be reduced by the Company under applicable law, and (5) extended the Credit Facility's revolving period from November 16, 2020 to December 21, 2022 and the final maturity was extended from November 16, 2021 to December 21, 2023.
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 the 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 nine months ended December 31, 2018, the Company sold a total of 785,447 of the December 2022 Notes under the ATM debt distribution agreement, generating approximately $19.9 million in gross proceeds at an effective yield of 5.86%. At this time, the Company does not intend to issue additional December 2022 Notes under this ATM debt distribution agreement.
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.




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 December 31, 2018, I-45 SLF had $154 million in borrowings outstanding under its credit facility.

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 December 31, 2018, the Company repurchased 10,452 shares of common stock at an average price of $17.72 per share, including commissions paid. Cumulative to date, the Company has repurchased a total of 46,363 shares at an average price of $16.67 per share, including commissions paid. The Company currently has approximately $9.2 million available for additional repurchases under the program.
