Total investment income:  $2.5 million, or $0.12 per share
Net investment income:  $0.2 million, or $0.01 per share
Net realized and unrealized losses:  $19.3 million, or $0.96 per share

Investment in Castex Energy 2005, LP written down by $21.2 million, or $1.05 per share, and placed on non-accrual status during the quarter

Portfolio Activity
The fair value of our investment portfolio was $88.7 million at March 31, 2017, decreasing 15.5% compared to December 31, 2016. During the first quarter of 2017, the Company had realizations totaling $8.5 million and made one new investment in the amount of $9.9 million. The concentration of our investment portfolio in the energy sector at March 31, 2017 was 23%. The current weighted average yield of our portfolio based on the cost and fair value of our yielding investments was 12.5% and 12.8%, respectively, as of March 31, 2017.

During the first quarter, we added $7.0 million of second lien term loan in Equinox Holdings, Inc. ("Equinox"), a leading operator of upscale fitness clubs and spas. We initially acquired $10.0 million of Equinox second lien term loan (at price of 99.25), which earns interest payable in cash at a rate of LIBOR+7.0% with a 1% LIBOR floor and matures in September 2024. Subsequently, we sold $3.0 million of the Equinox second lien term loan at an average price of 101.5, resulting in a realized capital gain of $68,000.

In January 2017, we received $0.5 million remittance from our investment in Gramercy Park CLO Ltd., which we applied to our cost basis.

In February 2017, Royal Holdings, Inc. repaid part of its second lien term loan in the amount of $4.5 million. We recorded previously unamortized discount of $30,000 and 1% call premium of $45,000 as additional interest income and other investment income, respectively, as a result of this repayment.

In March 2017, we sold $0.5 million of the second lien term loan of Berlin Packaging, LLC at a price of 101.0, resulting in a realized capital gain of $23,000.

Operating Results
Investment income totaled $2.5 million for the first quarter of 2017, decreasing 52.4% compared to $5.2 million in the corresponding quarter of 2016. The decrease was attributable to a decrease in average portfolio investment balance on a cost basis and a decrease in the weighted average yield on our investment portfolio from March 31, 2016 to March 31, 2017. Also during the first quarter of 2017, we placed our investment in the redeemable preferred LP units of Castex Energy 2005, LP ("Castex") on non-accrual status based on our March 31, 2017 valuation, which reflected a determination that future payments to be received from this investment would no longer be sufficient to cover all of the contractual principal and dividend amounts on this investment. For the first quarter of 2016, Castex dividend income was $1.3 million or 25% of total investment income.

Operating expenses for the first quarter of 2017 were $2.3 million, a decrease of $1.0 million, or 31.7%, compared to operating expenses for the first quarter of 2016. The decrease in operating expenses is related to lower base management and incentive fees, professional fees and other general and administrative expenses.

The resulting net investment income was $0.2 million or $0.01 per share, for the first quarter of 2017, compared to $1.8 million, or $0.09 per share, for the first quarter of 2016.

We recorded net realized and unrealized losses on investments totaling $19.3 million, or $0.96 per share, during the first quarter of 2017, compared to $13.5 million, or $0.67 per share, during the first quarter of 2016. Total losses recorded in the first quarter of 2017 was driven primarily by the $21.2 million write-down in Castex, a legacy energy portfolio investment.

Overall, we experienced a net decrease in net assets resulting from operations of $19.1 million, or $0.95 per share, for the first quarter of 2017. After declaring a quarterly dividend during the period of $0.02 per share, our net asset value decreased 24.3%, from $3.99 per share as of December 31, 2016 to $3.02 per share as of March 31, 2017.

Liquidity and Capital Resources
At March 31, 2017, we had cash and cash equivalents totaling $9.3 million. The total amount outstanding under our credit facility at March 31, 2017 was $40.5 million with $16.0 available to draw.
