MCG Capital Corporation Reports Fourth Quarter 2011 and Annual Results and Distribution of $0.17 Per Share

Thursday, March 1, 2012 9:02 AM


MCG Capital Corporation (Nasdaq: MCGC) ("MCG" or the "Company") announced today its financial results for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2011. MCG will host an investment community conference call today, March 1, 2012 at 10:00 a.m. (Eastern Time).

HIGHLIGHTS

  • Distributable net operating income, or DNOI, for the quarter ended December 31, 2011 was $8.2 million, or $0.11 per share. DNOI for all of 2011 was $40.2 million, or $0.53 per share. DNOI refers to net operating income adjusted for amortization of employee restricted stock awards.
  • Net operating income, or NOI, for the quarter ended December 31, 2011 was $7.5 million, or $0.09 per share. NOI for the full year was $37.7 million, or $0.49 per share.
  • Net loss for the quarter ended December 31, 2011 was $49.0 million, or $0.64 per share. Net loss for the full year was $93.1 million, or $1.22 per share.
  • DNOI and NOI were reduced, and net loss per share increased, each on a per share basis by $0.04 for the quarter ended December 31, 2011 due to the August 2011 corporate restructuring costs, as well as, severance payments and other related costs in connection with the October 2011 departure of MCG's former chief executive officer. For the full year, these costs reduced DNOI and NOI, and increased net loss, each on a per share basis by $0.09.
  • Net investment loss for the quarter ended December 31, 2011 was $56.4 million, which included an $18.3 million reduction in the fair value of Broadview Networks Holdings, Inc., or Broadview, primarily reflecting, among other factors, continuing challenges in the bond market, a downgrade of Broadview's corporate credit rating, delays by Broadview in refinancing its debt, as well as the near-term maturities of Broadview's debt facilities. Additionally, the Company recorded a $21.9 million reduction in the fair value of Jet Plastica Investors, LLC, or Jet Plastica, to reflect, among other factors, a continued decrease in its operating performance. Lastly, for the quarter ended December 31, 2011, the Company recorded an $11.7 million reduction in the fair value for Jenzabar, Inc. in connection with the negotiation of a discounted monetization of this investment in February 2012. Net investment loss for the year ended December 31, 2011 was $129.9 million.
  • During the quarter ended December 31, 2011, MCG funded $14.4 million of advances and originations, including $9.4 million to one new portfolio company. Payoffs and portfolio monetization activities totaled $41.3 million during the quarter.
  • MCG's ratio of total assets to total borrowings and other senior securities was 244% as of December 31, 2011.

DISTRIBUTION

On February 24, 2012, the MCG board of directors declared a distribution of $0.17 per share. The distribution is payable as follows:

Record date: April 13, 2012
Payable date: May 15, 2012

MCG determines the tax attributes of its distributions as of the end of the fiscal year based upon the taxable income for the full year and distributions paid during the year. For the tax year ended December 31, 2011, 37% would be from ordinary income and 63% would be a return of capital.

OVERVIEW

Today, MCG reported a fourth quarter 2011 net loss of $49.0 million, or $0.64 per basic and diluted share, which represented a $31.2 million, or $0.41 per share, incremental net loss from the $17.8 million, or $0.23 per share, reported for the comparable period in 2010. The incremental net loss resulted primarily from a $26.7 million increase in MCG's net investment loss before income tax provision and a $4.4 million decrease in MCG's operating income.

MCG's revenue for the fourth quarter of 2011 was $19.5 million, which represented a $4.0 million, or 17.1%, decrease from the comparable period in 2010. This decrease was composed of a $3.1 million decrease in interest and dividend income and a $0.9 million decrease in advisory fees and other income. MCG reported DNOI of $8.2 million, or $0.11 per share, which represented a $4.7 million, or $0.06 per share, decrease from the fourth quarter of 2010. NOI during the fourth quarter of 2011 was $7.5 million, which represented a $4.4 million, or 37.2%, decrease from the comparable period in 2010.

LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES

As of December 31, 2011, MCG had $58.6 million in cash and cash equivalents and $75.3 million of cash in securitization and restricted accounts, a portion of which could be deployed for suitable new investment opportunities. The reinvestment period for the Company's Commercial Loan Trust 2006-1 facility ("MCG 2006-1") expired on July 20, 2011 and all subsequent principal collections received will be used to repay a portion of this debt. In January 2012, MCG used $24.3 million of securitized cash to repay a portion of the MCG 2006-1 and MCG Commercial Loan Funding Trust ("SunTrust Warehouse") secured debt, and also used $8.7 million of cash and cash equivalents to repay its private placement notes in full. As of December 31, 2011, MCG had $430.2 million of total borrowings.

As a business development company, MCG is required to meet an asset coverage ratio of total net assets to total borrowings and other senior securities of at least 200% in order to borrow under new borrowing facilities or to make distributions to its stockholders. MCG's asset coverage ratio was 244% as of December 31, 2011.

CORPORATE RESTRUCTURING AND OTHER ORGANIZATIONAL CHANGES

On August 1, 2011, the Company's board of directors approved a plan to reduce MCG's workforce by 42%, including 22 employees and 5 resignations. As of December 31, 2011, the Company's headcount was 37 employees. Affected employees received severance pay, continuation of benefits and, for employees who had been awarded restricted stock, additional lapsing of restrictions associated with restricted stock awards. During the year ended December 31, 2011, MCG incurred $4.3 million of restructuring expenses, which are reported as a separate line item on its Consolidated Statements of Operations.

As previously announced, Richard W. Neu, Chairman of the MCG board of directors, was elected as Chief Executive Officer on October 31, 2011, succeeding Steven F. Tunney, Sr., who resigned in order to pursue other interests. During the three months ended December 31, 2011, MCG recognized $2.7 million of severance and other expenses associated with Mr. Tunney's resignation consisting of $2.3 million of severance recognized in general and administrative expense and $0.4 million recognized in amortization of employee restricted stock expense.

PORTFOLIO ACTIVITY

The fair value of MCG's investment portfolio totaled $741.2 million as of December 31, 2011, as compared to $1,009.7 million as of December 31, 2010. During the fourth quarter of 2011, MCG funded $14.4 million of originations and advances, including a $9.4 million origination of senior debt to one new portfolio company, $2.1 million of originations and advances to three existing portfolio companies under revolving and line of credit facilities, and $2.8 million of paid-in-kind, or PIK, advances. The $2.1 million of originations and advances to existing portfolio companies included $1.6 million of investments in senior debt securities and $0.5 million in secured subordinated debt securities. Gross payments, reductions and sales of securities during the fourth quarter of 2011 of $41.3 million were composed of $32.6 million of senior debt, $0.5 million of secured subordinated debt, $2.2 million of unsecured subordinated debt, $5.8 million of preferred equity and $0.2 million of common equity.

During the three months ended December 31, 2011, MCG reported net investment losses before income tax provision of $56.4 million, which are detailed below:

OUTLOOK

As previously announced, on October 31, 2011, Richard W. Neu, Chairman of MCG's board of directors, was elected as chief executive officer, succeeding Steven F. Tunney, Sr. who resigned in order to pursue other interests. Additionally, B. Hagen Saville, previously the Company's Executive Vice President of Business Development and a member of MCG's board of directors, was appointed President and Chief Operating Officer. Under the direction of Messrs. Neu and Saville, MCG took a fresh look at how to prudently and expeditiously return the Company to its roots as a strong middle market debt lender. As part of that undertaking, every aspect of the Company was examined under the assumption that its legacy equity positions wind down over the course of 2012 and with the fundamental goal of simplifying operations.

This transition is consistent with the desire to create a company with less credit and leverage risk yet one that has a sustainable and predictable level of NOI and dividend generation. The transition also addresses the potential impact of an expected reduction, over the next several years, of the size of the Company's investment portfolio as its existing secondary market funding facilities contractually wind down.

The Company is substantially complete with its process review. Relative to its fourth quarter annualized general and administrative costs, excluding costs related to the resignation of Mr. Tunney, MCG has identified non-compensation cost reduction opportunities of approximately $4.5 million to $5.5 million per annum which, when fully implemented, MCG believes will target a non-compensation cost structure of approximately $5.5 million to $6.5 million. The Company expects these cost reductions to be embedded in its non-compensation operating costs by no later than the end of the first quarter of 2013, which is when the lease on the Company's current headquarters facility expires.

In addition to its process review, and taking into consideration the anticipated wind down of its legacy equity positions and current secondary market funding facilities, MCG undertook a comprehensive review of its current work force and structure. This review encompassed a benchmark review against internally managed peers together with a skill assessment of its current personnel. It was undertaken with the intended fundamental principle of allowing no degradation to the Company's existing risk management profile.

As a result of this review, MCG would anticipate its current work force of 37 employees will transition to a level of 20 to 25 by year end 2012. This reduction in force is intended to generate a targeted future base compensation and benefits level of approximately $4.0 million to $5.0 million beginning in 2013.

As MCG enters 2013 and begins to realize the expected benefits of the initiatives discussed above, it is forecasting NOI of approximately $0.50 per share to $0.60 per share. In effect, the anticipated cost savings of approximately $8.5 million to $10.5 million, together with the earnings benefits from projected monetizations and proposed conversions of legacy equity investments to debt instruments, are intended to provide a substantial offset to the earnings reduction attributable to the significant deleveraging of MCG's balance sheet.

In arriving at this forecast, a number of assumptions are required which, if incorrect, could materially change the results of the Company's forecast, including potential monetizations and proposed conversions. However, the Company has assumed no incremental debt or equity issuances as it clearly recognizes that the primary path to future debt and equity support from investors, at economic levels, is through the stabilization of its investment portfolio.

With respect to 2012, MCG is anticipating to incur non-recurring costs of approximately $0.10 per share to $0.15 per share, primarily associated with expected severance costs, the previously announced amendment of its SunTrust Warehouse facility, the early retirement of its private placement notes and other transitional costs. Excluding these costs, the Company is forecasting NOI of approximately $0.40 per share to $0.50 per share.

Recognizing the one time nature of the 2012 transitory costs, the Company's strong liquidity position, and the importance of dividends to its investor base, MCG has committed to a dividend declaration level of $0.14 per share for the next two quarters. Accordingly, MCG will pay a $0.17 per share dividend in May 2012 followed by a $0.14 per share dividend in both July and October 2012. Such payments are expected to include a return of capital.

Lastly, as previously announced on January 17, 2012, the Company is authorized to repurchase shares of MCG common stock, up to $35 million, in open market transactions, including through block purchases, depending on prevailing market conditions and other factors. No shares have been repurchased to date.

_____________
(a)   DNOI represents net operating income before net investment loss, loss on extinguishment of debt and income tax provision (benefit), as determined in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP, adjusted for amortization of employee restricted stock awards. MCG views DNOI and the related per share measures as useful and appropriate supplements to net operating income, net income (loss), earnings (loss) per share and cash flows from operating activities. These measures serve as an additional measure of MCG's operating performance exclusive of employee restricted stock amortization, which represents an expense of the Company but does not require settlement in cash. DNOI does include PIK interest and dividend income which are generally not payable in cash on a regular basis, but rather at investment maturity or when declared. DNOI should not be considered as an alternative to net operating income, net income (loss), earnings (loss) per share and cash flows from operating activities (each computed in accordance with GAAP). Instead, DNOI should be reviewed in connection with net operating income, net income (loss), earnings (loss) per share and cash flows from operating activities in MCG's consolidated financial statements, to help analyze how MCG's business is performing.
 
(b) Results for Q4 2011 include amortization of employee restricted stock awards of $360 associated with the resignation of MCG's former chief executive officer, Steven F. Tunney, Sr.
 
(c) Results for Q4 2011 include severance costs of $2,287 associated with the resignation of MCG's former chief executive officer, Steven F. Tunney, Sr.
 
(d) Results for Q3 2011 and Q4 2011 include $431 and $1, respectively, of amortization of employee restricted stock awards associated with MCG's corporate restructuring.
 
(e) On February 24, 2012, MCG's board of directors declared a distribution of $0.17 per share payable on May 15, 2012 to shareholders of record as of April 13, 2012. MCG determines the tax attributes of its distributions as of the end of the fiscal year based upon the taxable income for the full year and distributions paid during the year. For the tax year ended December 31, 2011, 37% would be from ordinary income and 63% would be a return of capital.

(a)   DNOI represents net operating income before net investment loss, loss on extinguishment of debt and income tax provision (benefit), as determined in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP, adjusted for amortization of employee restricted stock awards. MCG views DNOI and the related per share measures as useful and appropriate supplements to net operating income, net income (loss), earnings (loss) per share and cash flows from operating activities. These measures serve as an additional measure of MCG's operating performance exclusive of employee restricted stock amortization, which represents an expense of the Company but does not require settlement in cash. DNOI does include PIK interest and dividend income which are generally not payable in cash on a regular basis, but rather at investment maturity or when declared. DNOI should not be considered as an alternative to net operating income, net income (loss), earnings (loss) per share and cash flows from operating activities (each computed in accordance with GAAP). Instead, DNOI should be reviewed in connection with net operating income, net income (loss), earnings (loss) per share and cash flows from operating activities in MCG's consolidated financial statements, to help analyze how MCG's business is performing.
 
(b) Results for 2011 include amortization of employee restricted stock awards of $360 associated with the resignation of MCG's former chief executive officer, Steven F. Tunney, Sr.
 

IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT NON-GAAP REFERENCES

References by MCG Capital Corporation to distributable net operating income, or DNOI, refer to net operating income before net investment loss, gain (loss) on extinguishment of debt and income tax provision (benefit), as determined in accordance with GAAP adjusted for amortization of employee restricted stock awards.

The Company's management uses DNOI and the related per share measures as useful and appropriate supplements to net operating income, net income (loss), earnings (loss) per share and cash flows from operating activities. These measures serve as an additional measure of MCG's operating performance exclusive of employee restricted stock amortization, which represents an expense of the Company but does not require settlement in cash. DNOI does include PIK interest and dividend income that generally are not payable in cash on a regular basis, but rather at investment maturity or when declared.

The Company believes that providing non-GAAP DNOI and DNOI per share affords investors a view of results that may be more easily compared to peer companies and enables investors to consider the Company's results on both a GAAP and non-GAAP basis in periods when the Company is undertaking non-recurring activities. DNOI should not be considered as an alternative to, as an indicator of the Company's operating performance, or as a substitute for net operating income, net (loss) income, earnings (loss) per share and cash flows from operating activities (each computed in accordance with GAAP). Instead, DNOI should be reviewed in connection with net operating income, net (loss) income, earnings (loss) per share and cash flows from operating activities in MCG's consolidated financial statements, to help analyze how MCG's business is performing because the items excluded from the non-GAAP measures often have a material impact on the Company's results of operations. Therefore, management uses, and investors should use, non-GAAP measures only in conjunction with its reported GAAP results.
