As we look ahead, we continue to be excited about the opportunities in the Lower Middle Market while our deal pipeline remains strong. We continue to employ our conservative, late-cycle credit underwriting principals in a market where competition remains intense and the economy, while being late in the credit cycle, appears to be showing resilience in the short term. With our board’s declaration of a total dividend of $0.50 for the September quarter, this will mark our 15th consecutive quarter of increasing shareholder distributions. Finally, this quarter we continued to strengthen our balance sheet, diversifying our capital sources by adding a new bank lender to our credit facility, while also continuing to add equity capital to the capital structure through our equity ATM program.”

First Quarter Fiscal Year Investment Activities

First Fiscal Quarter 2020 Operating Results
For the quarter ended June 30, 2019, Capital Southwest reported total investment income of $15.8 million, compared to $14.3 million in the prior quarter. The increase in investment income was attributable to an increase in average debt investments outstanding.
For the quarter ended June 30, 2019, total operating expenses (excluding interest expense) were $4.3 million, compared to $3.8 million in the prior quarter. The increase in expenses was primarily due to a one-time expense related to the acceleration of restricted stock award vesting upon the retirement of an employee, payroll taxes related to the annual employee bonus payment, as well as employee recruiting costs for a new hire during the quarter.



For the quarter ended June 30, 2019, interest expense was $3.8 million, compared to $3.3 million in the prior quarter. The increase in interest expense was due to increased average debt outstanding on the revolving credit facility and the amortization of $0.2 million of remaining debt issuance costs associated with the ATM debt distribution agreement (as defined below).
For the quarter ended June 30, 2019, total pre-tax net investment income was $7.7 million, compared to $7.2 million in the prior quarter.
For the quarter ended June 30, 2019, tax expense remained flat at $0.3 million, as compared to the prior quarter.
During the quarter ended June 30, 2019, Capital Southwest recorded total net realized and unrealized losses on investments of $0.6 million, compared to total net realized and unrealized gains on investments of $3.6 million in the prior quarter. For the quarter ended June 30, 2019, this included total net realized gains on investments of $1.2 million and net unrealized depreciation on investments of $1.9 million, of which $1.7 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 $6.7 million for the quarter, compared to $10.5 million in the prior quarter.
The Company’s NAV at June 30, 2019 was $18.58 per share, as compared to $18.62 at March 31, 2019. The decrease in NAV per share from the prior quarter is primarily due to the supplemental dividend of $0.10 per share.

Liquidity and Capital Resources
At June 30, 2019, Capital Southwest had approximately $12.0 million in unrestricted cash and money market balances, $151 million of total debt outstanding on its revolving credit facility and $75.4 million, net of unamortized debt issuance costs, of the December 2022 Notes outstanding. As of June 30, 2019, Capital Southwest had $140.6 million in available borrowings under the revolving credit facility. The debt to equity ratio at the end of the quarter was 0.69 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 May 23, 2019, the Company entered into an Incremental Assumption Agreement, which increased the total commitments under the Credit Facility by $25 million. The increase was executed under the accordion feature of the Credit Facility and increased total commitments from $270 million to $295 million.
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 three months ended June 30, 2019, the Company did not sell any December 2022 Notes. The Company has no current intention of issuing additional December 2022 Notes under this ATM debt distribution agreement. Therefore, during the three months ended June 30, 2019, the Company amortized $0.2 million of the remaining debt issuance costs associated with the ATM debt distribution agreement, which is included in interest expense in the Consolidated Statement of Operations.
On March 4, 2019, the Company entered into separate equity distribution agreements with certain sales agents through which it may offer and sell, from time to time, shares of its common stock having an aggregate offering price of up to $50,000,000 (the "Equity ATM Program"). During the quarter ended June 30, 2019, the Company sold 195,549 shares of its common stock under the Equity ATM Program at a weighted-average price of $21.66 per share, raising $4.2 million of gross proceeds. Net proceeds were $4.1 million after commissions to the sales agents on shares sold. Cumulative to date, the Company has sold 459,205 shares of its common stock under the Equity ATM Program at a weighted-average price of $21.55, raising $9.9 million of gross proceeds.
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 June 30, 2019, I-45 SLF had $155 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 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 June 30, 2019, the Company did not repurchase any shares of the Company's common stock under the share repurchase program. 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.




Declared Dividend of $0.50 Per Share for Quarter Ended September 30, 2019
On July 31, 2019, the Board declared total dividends of $0.50 per share for the quarter ended September 30, 2019, comprised of a Regular Dividend of $0.40 per share and a Supplemental Dividend of $0.10 per share.

The Company's dividend will be payable as follows:

September 30, 2019 Dividend

Amount Per Share: $0.50
Ex-Dividend Date: September 13, 2019
Record Date: September 16, 2019
Payment Date: September 30, 2019
 
When declaring dividends, the Board reviews estimates of taxable income available for distribution, which may differ from net investment income under generally accepted accounting principles. The final determination of taxable income for each year, as well as the tax attributes for dividends in such year, will be made after the close of the tax year. 
Capital Southwest maintains a dividend reinvestment plan ("DRIP") that provides for the reinvestment of dividends on behalf of its registered stockholders who hold their shares with Capital Southwest’s transfer agent and registrar, American Stock Transfer and Trust Company.  Under the DRIP, if the Company declares a dividend, registered stockholders who have opted into the DRIP by the dividend record date will have their dividend automatically reinvested into additional shares of Capital Southwest common stock.

Management uses this metric as a guide to evaluate relative risk of its position in each portfolio debt investment. For the quarter ended June 30, 2019, one portfolio company is excluded from this calculation due to reporting a debt to adjusted EBITDA ratio that was not meaningful Page 12
