Aug 9, 2021

Total investment income grew 20% to $811,000 compared with the prior-year period Net asset value per share (“NAV”) increased 8% to $22.51 per share from $20.87 per share at March 31, 2021; NAV increased 26% compared with $17.86 at December 31, 2020 Total investments in the quarter were $4.6 million, including a new portfolio investment of $3.9 million Exits and loan repayments totaled $2.4 million in the quarter The third quarter cash distribution of $0.10 per share was announced on July 29, 2021 Cash and cash equivalents was $12.9 million with an additional $3 million of capacity available under the SBIC debenture program for total liquidity of $15.9 million August 09, 2021 08:30 AM Eastern Daylight Time BUFFALO, N.Y.--( BUSINESS WIRE )-- Rand Capital Corporation (Nasdaq: RAND) (“Rand” or the “Company”), a business development company (“BDC”), announced its results for the quarter ended June 30, 2021. Allen F. (“Pete”) Grum, President and Chief Executive Officer of Rand, commented, “We are executing on our strategy to position our portfolio to grow investment income. The portfolio continues to perform well supported by improving economic activity which is driving growth in total investment income. We believe our strong liquidity and pipeline of potential investments present further growth opportunities. We expect this to ultimately deliver sustained growth in net investment income and subsequently our quarterly cash distributions.” Second Quarter Highlights Total investment income in the quarter grew 20% to $811,000 due to increased interest income from portfolio companies and increased dividend and other investment income. Total expenses in the quarter were $1.6 million, up $1.1 million from prior-year period, which was the result of $1.1 million in capital gains incentive fees during the quarter compared with no similar fees in the prior-year period. The fee was primarily the result of realized gains from the sale of GiveGab and the increase in unrealized appreciation mostly related to Open Exchange, Inc. Operating expenses in the quarter, a non-GAAP financial measure which excludes the capital gains incentive fee accrual, increased $84,000, or 18%, mostly because of an increase in the base management fee payable to Rand’s investment adviser resulting from increased asset values. See the attached description of this non-GAAP financial measure and reconciliation table for operating expenses. Net investment loss was $811,000, or $0.31 per share, compared with net investment income of $199,000, or $0.08 per share, in the prior-year period. Adjusted net investment income per share, which excludes capital gains incentive fees, was $0.10 for the second quarter of 2021. See the attached description of this non-GAAP financial measure and reconciliation table for adjusted net investment income per share. Net assets at June 30, 2021 were $58.1 million, up 8% from March 31, 2021. The increase largely reflects unrealized appreciation on Rand’s investment in Open Exchange following its new financing. Net assets were up 26% from December 31, 2020, mostly due to the increase in unrealized appreciation on Rand’s investment in ACV Auctions resulting from ACV Auctions’ initial public offering completed in March 2021. Portfolio and Investment Activity As of June 30, 2021, Rand’s portfolio consisted of 35 companies. At that date, the dollar value of the portfolio was comprised of approximately 55% in equity investments, 36% in fixed-rate debt investments and 9% in dividend paying, publicly traded BDCs. The annualized weighted average yield of debt investments was 11.9%. At June 30, 2021, portfolio fair value increased $7.5 million, or 14%, to $59.8 million compared with March 31, 2021, due primarily to valuation adjustments and new investments offset by sales and payoffs. There was one exit in the quarter and a partial repayment of $15,000: The Company sold its investment in GiveGab Inc. and recognized a gain of $1.8 million. Rand made $4.6 million in new and follow-on investments in the quarter: Funded $3.9 million to ITA Acquisition, LLC with both loan and equity components. ITA manufactures a broad variety of window covering components and finished window treatments including wood, faux wood and fabric shades, shutters and blinds for residential and commercial applications. Follow-on debt financing of $667,000 was provided to Mattison Avenue Holdings, LLC, a high-end salon suite business that provides customized, fully furnished salon and spa studio space for lease in prime locations for individual stylists, barbers, massage therapists, nail technicians and estheticians. Liquidity and Capital Resources Cash and cash equivalents at the end of the quarter was $12.9 million and represented 22.3% of net assets. Outstanding SBA leverage was $11 million at the end of the quarter and there was $3 million remaining available to draw on the SBIC debenture program. The earliest debenture maturity is in September 2022 when $3 million in borrowings are due. Dividend Distributions On July 29, 2021, the Board declared a regular quarterly cash dividend distribution of $0.10 per share to be paid on or about September 16, 2021, to shareholders of record as of September 2, 2021.
