____________________________________________

(1)

Net income can vary substantially from period to period due to various factors, including the level of new investment commitments, the recognition of realized gains and losses and unrealized appreciation and depreciation. As a result, quarterly comparisons of net income may not be meaningful.

(2)

 

All per share amounts and weighted average shares outstanding are basic. The basic weighted average shares outstanding for the three months ended September 30, 2022 and 2021 were approximately 503 million and 453 million, respectively.

(3)

Core EPS is a non-GAAP financial measure. Core EPS is the net 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, divided by the basic weighted average shares outstanding for the relevant period. Basic GAAP net income (loss) per share is the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure. Ares Capital believes that Core EPS provides useful information to investors regarding financial performance because it is one method Ares Capital 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. Reconciliations of Core EPS to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure are set forth in Schedule 1 hereto.

(4)

In the first quarter of 2022, Ares Capital adopted Accounting Standards Update (ASU) 2020-06, “Accounting for Convertible Instruments and Contracts in an Entity’s Own Equity” (“ASU 2020-06”), which requires the use of the if-converted method when calculating the dilutive impact of outstanding convertible notes on diluted earnings per share. As a result, Ares Capital’s diluted GAAP net income per share for the three months ended September 30, 2022 was $0.21. The weighted average shares outstanding for purpose of calculating the diluted GAAP net income per share for the three months ended September 30, 2022 was approximately 523 million, which includes approximately 20 million shares related to the assumed conversion of outstanding convertible notes. Under the allowed modified retrospective method, diluted GAAP net income per share for the prior period presented was not restated to reflect the impact of ASU 2020-06. As such, diluted GAAP net income per share amount for the prior period presented was the same as the basic GAAP net income per share amount.

(5)

Includes an additional dividend of $0.03 per share paid in the third quarter ended September 30, 2022 to stockholders of record as of September 15, 2022.

“Our third quarter core earnings increased 9% sequentially driven by the benefits of rising interest rates and the continued credit stability in our portfolio,” said Kipp deVeer, Chief Executive Officer of Ares Capital. “With the prospects of continued increases in interest rates coupled with the stability in our portfolio and our strong capital position, we believe we will be in a position to generate a higher level of core earnings for the foreseeable future. Therefore, we are raising our regular quarterly dividend by 12% to $0.48 per share, which represents our third increase this year.”

“Our available capital and liquidity position continue to be an important competitive advantage for the company,” said Penni Roll, Chief Financial Officer of Ares Capital. “With low-cost unsecured notes accounting for over 70% of our debt financing coupled with limited near term debt maturities, we believe our balance sheet strength positions us to perform well in the current market environment.”

(7)

Including Ares Capital's investment in the subordinated certificates of the SDLP (as defined below).

(8)

Weighted average yield on debt and other income producing securities is computed as (a) the annual stated interest rate or yield earned plus the net annual amortization of original issue discount and market discount or premium earned on accruing debt and other income producing securities (including the annualized amount of the dividend received by Ares Capital related to its equity investment in IHAM during the most recent quarter end), divided by (b) the total accruing debt and other income producing securities at amortized cost or at fair value (including the amortized cost or fair value of Ares Capital’s equity investment in IHAM as applicable), as applicable.

(9)

Weighted average yield on total investments is computed as (a) the annual stated interest rate or yield earned plus the net annual amortization of original issue discount and market discount or premium earned on accruing debt and other income producing securities (including the annualized amount of the dividend received by Ares Capital related to its equity investment in IHAM during the most recent quarter end), divided by (b) total investments at amortized cost or at fair value, as applicable.

(10)

Includes Ares Capital’s equity and subordinated loan investments in IHAM, as applicable.

In the third quarter of 2022, Ares Capital made new investment commitments of approximately $2.2 billion, including $342 million of new investment commitments to IHAM, of which approximately $1.9 billion were funded. New investment commitments included 13 new portfolio companies and 26 existing portfolio companies and one additional portfolio company through the Senior Direct Lending Program (the “SDLP”), through which Ares Capital co-invests with Varagon Capital Partners (“Varagon”), and its clients, to fund first lien senior secured loans. As of September 30, 2022, 224 separate private equity sponsors were represented in Ares Capital’s portfolio. Of the $2.2 billion in new commitments made during the third quarter of 2022, 62% were in first lien senior secured loans, 5% were in second lien senior secured loans, 4% were in were subordinated certificates of the SDLP, 9% were in preferred equity, 15% were for Ares Capital’s investment in IHAM and 5% were in other equity. Of these commitments, 81% were in floating rate debt securities, of which 91% contained interest rate floors. Ares Capital may seek to sell all or a portion of these new investment commitments, although there can be no assurance that Ares Capital will be able to do so. Also in the third quarter of 2022, Ares Capital funded approximately $212 million related to previously existing unfunded revolving and delayed draw loan commitments.

Also in the third quarter of 2022, Ares Capital exited approximately $2.0 billion of investment commitments, including approximately $860 million of loans sold to IHAM or certain vehicles managed by IHAM. Of the total investment commitments exited, 70% were first lien senior secured loans, 17% were second lien senior secured loans, 3% were preferred equity, 9% were Ares Capital’s investment in IHAM and 1% were other equity. Of the approximately $2.0 billion of exited investment commitments, 89% were floating rate, 7% were on non-accrual status, 3% were fixed rate and 1% were non-income producing.

As of September 30, 2022 and December 31, 2021, the weighted average grade of the portfolio at fair value was 3.2 and 3.1, respectively, and loans on non-accrual status represented 1.6% of total investments at amortized cost (or 0.9% at fair value) and 0.8% at amortized cost (or 0.5% at fair value), respectively. For more information on Ares Capital’s portfolio investment grades and loans on non-accrual status, see “Part I - Item 2. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations— Portfolio and Investment Activity” in Ares Capital’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended September 30, 2022, filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) on October 25, 2022.

As of September 30, 2022, Ares Capital had $257 million in cash and cash equivalents and $11.9 billion in total aggregate principal amount of debt outstanding ($11.8 billion at carrying value). Subject to borrowing base and other restrictions, Ares Capital had approximately $4.3 billion available for additional borrowings under its existing credit facilities as of September 30, 2022.

During the three months ended September 30, 2022, Ares Capital issued and sold approximately 2.8 million shares of common stock under its equity distribution agreements, with net proceeds totaling approximately $55.5 million, after giving effect to sales agents’ commissions and certain offering expenses.

In August 2022, Ares Capital completed a public underwritten equity offering pursuant to which Ares Capital sold 9.2 million shares of common stock at a price of $19.00 per share to the participating underwriters, with net proceeds totaling approximately $174.4 million, after giving effect to offering expenses.

THIRD QUARTER 2022 DIVIDEND PAID AND 2022 DECLARED ADDITIONAL DIVIDENDS

On July 26, 2022, Ares Capital announced that its Board of Directors declared a third quarter 2022 dividend of $0.43 per share for a total of approximately $219 million. On February 9, 2022, Ares Capital announced that its Board of Directors declared an additional third quarter dividend of $0.03 per share for a total of approximately $15 million.

On February 9, 2022, Ares Capital also announced that its Board of Directors declared an additional dividend of $0.03 per share to be distributed in the fourth quarter of 2022.

Payment of the additional December 29, 2022 dividend is subject to the satisfaction of certain Maryland law requirements.

RECENT DEVELOPMENTS

From October 1, 2022 through October 20, 2022, Ares Capital made new investment commitments of approximately $1.1 billion, of which $1.0 billion were funded. Of these new commitments, 68% were in first lien senior secured loans, 31% were in second lien senior secured loans and 1% were in other equity. Of the approximately $1.1 billion of new 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 funded during the period at amortized cost was 11.0% and the weighted average yield on total investments funded during the period at amortized cost was 10.9%. Ares Capital may seek to sell all or a portion of these new investment commitments, although there can be no assurance that it will be able to do so.

From October 1, 2022 through October 20, 2022, Ares Capital exited approximately $418 million of investment commitments, including $6 million of loans sold to IHAM or certain vehicles managed by IHAM. Of the total investment commitments exited, 77% were first lien senior secured loans, 20% were preferred equity and 3% were second lien senior secured loans. Of the approximately $418 million of exited investment commitments, 80% were floating rate and 20% were fixed rate. The weighted average yield of debt and other income producing securities exited or repaid during the period at amortized cost was 10.0% and the weighted average yield on total investments exited or repaid during the period at amortized cost was 10.0%. Of the approximately $418 million of investment commitments exited from October 1, 2022 through October 20, 2022, Ares Capital recognized total net realized gains of approximately $8 million, with no realized gains or losses recognized from the sale of loans to IHAM or certain vehicles managed by IHAM.

In addition, as of October 20, 2022, Ares Capital had an investment backlog and pipeline of approximately $605 million and $0, respectively. Investment backlog includes transactions approved by Ares Capital’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 Ares Capital believes are likely to close. Investment pipeline 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 Ares Capital due diligence investigation of the prospective portfolio company, Ares Capital’s acceptance of the terms and structure of such investment and the execution and delivery of satisfactory transaction documentation. In addition, Ares Capital may sell all or a portion of these investments and certain of these investments may result in the repayment of existing investments. Ares Capital cannot assure you that it will make any of these investments or that Ares Capital will sell all or any portion of these investments.

Core EPS is a non-GAAP financial measure. Core EPS is the net 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, divided by the basic weighted average shares outstanding for the relevant period. Basic GAAP net income (loss) per share is the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure. Ares Capital believes that Core EPS provides useful information to investors regarding financial performance because it is one method Ares Capital 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.

All per share amounts and weighted average shares outstanding are basic. The basic weighted average shares outstanding for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2022 were approximately 503 million and 492 million, respectively, and approximately 453 million and 441 million, respectively, for the comparable periods in 2021.

In the first quarter of 2022, Ares Capital adopted ASU 2020-06, which requires the use of the if-converted method when calculating the dilutive impact of outstanding convertible notes on diluted earnings per share. As a result, Ares Capital’s diluted GAAP net income per share for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2022 was $0.21 and $0.86, respectively. The weighted average shares outstanding for purpose of calculating the diluted GAAP net income per share for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2022 was approximately 523 million and 512 million, respectively, which includes approximately 20 million shares for each period related to the assumed conversion of outstanding convertible notes. Under the allowed modified retrospective method, diluted GAAP net income per share for the prior periods presented were not restated to reflect the impact of ASU 2020-06. As such, diluted GAAP net income per share amount for the prior periods presented are the same as the basic GAAP net income per share amount.
