ARES CAPITAL CORP : Results of Operations and Financial Condition (form 8-K)

01/12/2022 | 05:22pm EDT

Item 2.02. Results of Operations and Financial Condition.



Public Offering


On January 12, 2022, Ares Capital Corporation (the "Company") filed a preliminary prospectus supplement (the "Preliminary Prospectus Supplement") with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") in connection with a proposed offering of shares of its common stock. The Preliminary Prospectus Supplement included a summary of certain preliminary estimates regarding the Company's financial results for the quarter ended December 31, 2021 as well as certain other recent developments, which are set forth below. The preliminary estimated data and other information set forth below should not be considered a substitute for the financial information to be filed with the SEC in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2021 once it becomes available. These estimates are based on management's preliminary determination and have not been approved by our board of directors.

Preliminary Estimates of Results as of December 31, 2021

The Company estimates that basic and diluted GAAP earnings per share ("EPS") will be in the range of $0.77 to $0.86 and basic and diluted Core EPS will be in the range of $0.56 to $0.58, in each case, for the three months ended December 31, 2021 and net asset value per share as of December 31, 2021 will be in the range of $18.90 to $19.00. These estimates are based on management's preliminary determination and have not been approved by the Company's board of directors.

Basic and diluted Core EPS is a non-GAAP financial measure. Core EPS is the net per share increase (decrease) in stockholders' equity resulting from operations less net realized and unrealized gains and losses, any capital gains incentive fees attributable to such net realized and unrealized gains and losses and any income taxes related to such net realized gains and losses. The Company believes that Core EPS provides useful information to investors regarding financial performance because it is one method the Company uses to measure its financial condition and results of operations. The presentation of this additional information is not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for financial results prepared in accordance with GAAP.

A reconciliation of the Company's estimated basic and diluted Core EPS to the Company's estimated and basic and diluted GAAP EPS, the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure, for the three months ended December 31, 2021 is provided below:



                                                                 For the three
                                                                  months ended
                                                               December 31, 2021
Range of estimated basic and diluted Core EPS                $        0.56 - 0.58

Range of estimated net realized and unrealized gains (losses)

                                                              0.26 - 0.35

Range of estimated capital gains incentive fees attributed to net realized and unrealized gains and losses

                   (0.05) - (0.07)

Range of estimated income tax expense related to net realized gains and losses

                                             0.00 - 0.00
Range of estimated basic and diluted GAAP EPS                $        0.77 - 0.86




The estimates presented above are based on management's preliminary determinations only and, consequently, the data set forth in the Company's Annual Report for the year ended December 31, 2021 may differ from these estimates. For example, estimated net asset value per share is based on the value of the Company's total assets, including the Company's investments (substantially all of which are not publicly traded or whose market prices are not readily available, the fair value of which must be determined by the Company's board of directors in good faith). The fair value of such investments have not yet been determined by the Company's board of directors and the actual fair value of such investments, when determined by the Company's board of directors, may be different than the estimates reported herein. In addition, the information presented above does not include all of the information regarding the Company's financial condition and results of operations as of and for the period ended December 31, 2021 that may be important to investors. As a result, investors are cautioned not to place undue reliance on the information presented above and should view this information in the context of the Company's full fourth quarter results when such results are disclosed by the Company in its Annual Report for the year ended December 31, 2021. The information presented above is based on current management expectations that involve substantial risk and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from the results expressed in, or implied by, such information. The Company assumes no duty to update these preliminary estimates except as required by law.

The preliminary financial estimates provided herein have been prepared by, and are the responsibility of, management. Neither KPMG LLP, the Company's independent registered accounting firm, nor any other independent accountants, have audited, reviewed, compiled, or performed any procedures with respect to the accompanying preliminary financial data. Accordingly, KPMG LLP does not express an opinion or any other form of assurance with respect thereto.

Other Recent Developments


From October 1, 2021 through December 29, 2021, the Company made new investment commitments of approximately $5.6 billion, including $296 million of new investment commitments to IHAM. Of the approximately $5.6 billion of new investment commitments, $4.8 billion were funded. Of these new commitments, 64% were in first lien senior secured loans, 16% were in second lien senior secured loans, 2% were in subordinated certificates of the SDLP, 2% were in senior subordinated loans, 4% were in preferred equity and 12% were in other equity. Of the approximately $5.6 billion of new investment commitments, 83% were floating rate, 12% were non-income producing and 5% were fixed rate. The weighted average yield of debt and other income producing securities funded during the period at amortized cost was 7.2% and the weighted average yield on total investments funded during the period at amortized cost was 6.3%. The Company may seek to sell all or a portion of these new investment commitments, although there can be no assurance that the Company will be able to do so.

From October 1, 2021 through December 29, 2021, the Company exited approximately $3.5 billion of investment commitments, including $1.3 billion of loans sold to IHAM or certain vehicles managed by IHAM. Of the total investment commitments exited, 78% were first lien senior secured loans, 15% were second lien senior secured loans, 4% were senior subordinated loans, 2% were subordinated certificates of the SDLP and 1% were other equity. Of the approximately $3.5 billion of exited investment commitments, 98% were floating rate, 1% were non-income producing and 1% were on non-accrual status. The weighted average yield of debt and other income producing securities exited or repaid during the period at amortized cost was 7.0% and the weighted average yield on total investments exited or repaid during the period at amortized cost was 6.8%. Of the approximately $3.5 billion of investment commitments exited from October 1, 2021 through December 29, 2021, the Company recognized total net realized losses of approximately $11 million, including $3 million of net realized losses from the sale of loans to IHAM or certain vehicles managed by IHAM.

In addition, as of December 29, 2021, the Company had an investment backlog and pipeline of approximately $1.0 billion and $29 million, respectively. Investment backlog includes transactions approved by the Company's investment adviser's investment committee and/or for which a formal mandate, letter of intent or a signed commitment have been issued, and therefore the Company believes are likely to close. Investment pipeine includes transactions where due diligence and analysis are in process, but no formal mandate, letter of intent or signed commitment have been issued. The consummation of any of the investments in this backlog and pipeline depends upon, among other things, one or more of the following: satisfactory completion of the Company's due diligence investigation of the prospective portfolio company, the Company's acceptance of the terms and structure of such investment and the execution and delivery of satisfactory transaction documentation. In addition, the Company may sell all or a portion of these investments and certain of these investments may result in the repayment of existing investments. The Company cannot assure you that it will make any of these investments or that it will sell all or any portion of these investments.
