"We are pleased with ACSF's second quarter results and the performance of the portfolio. Credit quality remained stable, our portfolio grew modestly and we were able to achieve our objective of slightly shifting our asset mix by increasing our exposure to CLO equity," said Mark Pelletier, President and Chief Investment Officer of ACSF. "The credit environment remains benign and we saw yields on new loan issues widen. We continue to feel good about ACSF's portfolio over the long-term."

"This was our first full quarter earnings," stated John Erickson, Chief Financial Officer and Executive Vice President of ACSF, "and we are happy to report solid results which we attribute to our shareholder friendly structure and ACSF's asset selection comprised primarily of senior secured floating rate loans to large U.S. companies. We were pleased to announce a dividend increase to $0.28 per share for the second quarter. Our current annualized dividend represents a 7.4% yield on our NAV and an 8% yield on our June 30th closing share price. We look forward to continuing to deliver attractive risk-adjusted returns for our shareholders in future quarters."

PORTFOLIO AND INVESTMENT ACTIVITY
As of June 30, 2014, the fair market value of ACSF's portfolio totaled $287.5 million and was comprised of $204.4 million (or 71%) of first lien floating rate loans, $35.4 million (or 12%) of second lien floating rate loans (collectively, the "loan portfolio") and $47.7 million (or 17%) of equity investments in CLOs.  ACSF's portfolio had a weighted average yield (on cost) of 6.33% as of June 30, 2014.  The weighted average yield on the portfolio declined from 6.39% as of March 31, 2014 primarily due to updates to the forecasted yield on the CLO portfolio.

As of June 30, 2014, ACSF's loan portfolio was diversified across 108 companies and 40 industries, with average issuer concentration at 0.8% and no single company representing more than 1.6% of the investment portfolio.  ACSF's loan portfolio was invested solely in senior secured floating rate loans as of June 30, 2014.  Overall, ACSF's loan portfolio had a weighted average yield (on cost) of 5.28% as of June 30, 2014.

As of June 30, 2014, ACSF's CLO portfolio was invested across 13 issuers, with no issuer representing more than 1.9% of its investment portfolio.  Over 91% of the assets collateralizing ACSF's CLO investments were first lien floating rate loans.  ACSF's CLO portfolio had a weighted average yield of 11.57% as of June 30, 2014.

RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

Investment Income
Investment income for the three months ended June 30, 2014 was $4.6 million.  Interest generated from ACSF's loan portfolio totaled $3.1 million and income from ACSF's CLO portfolio totaled $1.5 million.

Net Expenses
Net expenses for the three months ended June 30, 2014 were $1.6 million, primarily comprised of interest and other debt related costs of $0.8 million, management fees of $0.6 million and other general administrative expenses.

Interest and other debt related costs incurred during the quarter ended June 30, 2014 are related to borrowings under ACSF's $140 million revolving credit facility (the "Credit Facility").  The Credit Facility generally bears interest at a spread of 1.80% over a chosen index (which is typically one-month LIBOR).  Included in other debt related costs are additional fees and expenses associated with the Credit Facility, including an unused commitment fee of 75 basis points on undrawn commitments and the amortization of debt financing costs.  The average interest rate on the Credit Facility during the quarter ended June 30, 2014 was 2.00% and the average total cost of funding, including fees and expenses during the quarter ended June 30, 2014 was 2.36%.   As of June 30, 2014, the balance outstanding on the Credit Facility was $128.0 million with an average interest rate of 1.95%.

Management fees were $0.6 million for the quarter.  Management fees are computed at 80 basis points per annum on ACSF's total assets, excluding unrealized gains or losses on investments and cash and cash equivalents.

For the first two years following ACSF's initial public offering (the "IPO"), American Capital ACSF Management, LLC, ACSF's manager, has agreed that other operating expenses will generally not exceed 75 basis points per annum of ACSF's quarter end equity, excluding unrealized gains or losses.  Thus, while actual other operating expenses totaled $0.6 million for the quarter, $0.3 million of its expenses were paid by ACSF's manager. As a result, the net other operating expenses totaled $0.3 million for the three months ended June 30, 2014.

Net Investment Income
Net investment income totaled $2.9 million, or $0.29 per share, for the three months ended June 30, 2014.

Net Realized Gains / Losses
Sales and repayments of investments during the three months ended June 30, 2014 totaled $43.6 million and resulted in net realized gains of $0.1 million, or $0.01 per share.

Net Unrealized Appreciation / Depreciation
As of June 30, 2014, the investment portfolio's fair market value exceeded its cost basis by $1.3 million.  The net unrealized depreciation on investments for the three months ended June 30, 2014 was $(0.2) million, which primarily relates to the reversal of previously recognized net unrealized appreciation of $(0.3) million upon the exit or repayment of select investments. 

LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES
As of June 30, 2014, the Company had $128.0 million in borrowings outstanding on the Credit Facility.  Borrowings under the Credit Facility are advanced against eligible collateral owned by ACSF Funding I, LLC, a wholly owned consolidated financing subsidiary of ACSF.  Advance rates vary on the type of collateral owned and can range up to 80%.  On a consolidated basis, as of June 30, 2014, the Company was levered at 0.85x debt to equity.

DIVIDENDS
ACSF's Board of Directors determines dividends based primarily on estimates of taxable income, which may differ from GAAP income due to temporary and permanent differences in income and expense recognition and changes in unrealized appreciation and depreciation on investments. The Company expects the dividends paid to date to be distributions of ordinary income, however the specific tax characteristics will be reported to stockholders on Form 1099 after the end of the calendar year.

For the quarter ended June 30, 2014, ACSF's Board of Directors declared a $0.28 dividend per share. The dividend was paid on July 10, 2014 to common stockholders of record as of June 30, 2014, with an ex-dividend date of June 26, 2014.  Since its January 2014 IPO, the Company has paid a total of $4.6 million in dividends, or $0.46 per share.

As of June 30, 2014, the Company had approximately $1.4 million, or $0.14 per share, of estimated undistributed taxable income.

FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS

This press release contains forward-looking information and statements. Forward-looking statements give our current expectations and projections relating to the Company's financial condition, results of operations, plans, objectives, future performance and business. You can identify forward-looking statements by the fact that they do not relate strictly to historical or current facts. These statements may include words such as "anticipate," "estimate," "expect," "project," "plan," "intend," "believe," "confident," "may," "should," "can have," "likely," "future" and other words and terms of similar meaning in connection with any discussion of the timing or nature of future operating or financial performance or other events. Forward looking statements are not guarantees of performance or results, and involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties (some of which are beyond the Company's control), assumptions and other factors that may cause actual results or events to differ materially from those anticipated in such forward-looking statements. Should one or more of these risks or uncertainties materialize, the Company's actual results may vary in material respects from those projected in any forward-looking statements. A detailed discussion of these and other factors that may affect future results is contained in our filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. Any forward-looking statement made by the Company in this press release speaks only as of the date on which it is made. The Company undertakes no obligation to update any forward-looking statement, whether as a result of new information, future developments or otherwise, except as may be required by law.

USE OF NON-GAAP FINANCIAL INFORMATION

In addition to the results presented in accordance with GAAP, this release includes certain non-GAAP financial information, including estimated taxable income and estimated undistributed taxable income, which the Company's management uses in its internal analysis of results and believes may be informative to investors.  Estimated taxable income is pre-tax income calculated in accordance with the requirements of the Internal Revenue Code rather than GAAP.  Estimated taxable income differs from GAAP income because of both temporary and permanent differences in income and expense recognition.  The Company believes that this non-GAAP financial measure provides information useful to investors because estimated taxable income is directly related to the amount of dividends the Company is required to distribute in order to maintain its tax status as a RIC. The Company also believes that providing investors with estimated taxable income, in addition to the related GAAP measures, gives investors greater transparency to the information used by management in its financial and operational decision-making.  However, because estimated taxable income is an incomplete measure of the Company's financial performance and involves differences from net income computed in accordance with GAAP, it should be considered as supplementary to, and not as a substitute for, the Company's net earnings computed in accordance with GAAP as a measure of the Company's financial performance.
