As part of the monitoring process, our Investment Adviser has developed risk policies pursuant to which it regularly assesses the risk profile of each of our debt investments and rates each of them based on the following categories, which we refer to as “Internal Risk Ratings”:
Internal Risk Ratings Definitions
Rating
  
Definition
1
  
Performing—Low Risk: Borrower is operating more than 10% ahead of the base case.
 
 
2
  
Performing—Stable Risk: Borrower is operating within 10% of the base case (above or below). This is the initial rating assigned to all new borrowers.
 
 
3
  
Performing—Management Notice: Borrower is operating more than 10% below the base case. A financial covenant default may have occurred, but there is a low risk of payment default.
 
 
4
  
Watch List: Borrower is operating more than 20% below the base case and there is a high risk of covenant default, or it may have already occurred. Payments are current although subject to greater uncertainty, and there is moderate to high risk of payment default.
 
 
5
  
Watch List—Possible Loss: Borrower is operating more than 30% below the base case. At the current level of operations and financial condition, the borrower does not have the ability to service and ultimately repay or refinance all outstanding debt on current terms. Payment default is very likely or may have occurred. Loss of principal is possible.
 
 
6
  
Watch List—Probable Loss: Borrower is operating more than 40% below the base case, and at the current level of operations and financial condition, the borrower does not have the ability to service and ultimately repay or refinance all outstanding debt on current terms. Payment default is very likely or may have already occurred. Additionally, the prospects for improvement in the borrower’s situation are sufficiently negative that impairment of some or all principal is probable.
Our Investment Adviser’s risk rating model is based on evaluating portfolio company performance in comparison to the base case when considering certain credit metrics including, but not limited to, adjusted EBITDA and net senior leverage as well as specific events including, but not limited to, default and impairment.
Our Investment Adviser monitors and, when appropriate, changes the investment ratings assigned to each debt investment in our portfolio. In connection with our quarterly valuation process, our Investment Adviser reviews our investment ratings on a regular basis. The following table summarizes the Internal Risk Ratings of our debt portfolio as of June 30, 2019 and March 31, 2019:

Consolidated Results of Operations
(dollar amounts in thousands, except per share data)

Total investment income for the three month periods ended June 30, 2019 and March 31, 2019 was $56,867 and $55,187, respectively. This $1,680 net increase was primarily due to an increase in income recognized from the acceleration of OID and prepayment fees from prepayments from our investment portfolio and an increase in interest income, during the three month period ended June 30, 2019.

Page | 3




Total expenses for the three month periods ended June 30, 2019 and March 31, 2019 were $28,896 and $27,625, respectively. This $1,271 net increase during the three month period ended June 30, 2019 was primarily attributable to an increase in interest expense as a result of an increase in average outstanding borrowings.

During the three month period ended June 30, 2019, the Company recorded a net realized loss and change in unrealized depreciation of $(18,214). This was primarily driven by changes in various inputs utilized under our valuation methodology, including, but not limited to, market spreads, leverage multiples and borrower ratings, and the impact of exits.

Liquidity and Capital Resources
(dollar amounts in thousands, except per share data)

As of June 30, 2019, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of $62,324, notes payable (before debt issuance costs) of $449,200, and secured borrowings outstanding of $649,397. As of June 30, 2019, the Company had $343,603 of remaining unfunded commitments and $206,888 available for additional borrowings under its revolving credit facilities, subject to leverage and borrowing base restrictions.

Dividend

On June 17, 2019, our Board of Directors declared a special dividend of $0.08 per share, which was paid on July 17, 2019 to stockholders of record as of June 28, 2019.

On August 5, 2019, our Board of Directors declared a quarterly dividend of $0.37 per share, which is payable on October 17, 2019 to stockholders of record as of September 30, 2019.

(1) Combined fair value of investments of TCG BDC and Credit Fund is not a U.S. generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP") financial measure. The Company believes that presenting this non-GAAP financial measure is useful because it illustrates our increased deal flow and portfolio size as a result of our strategic joint venture with Credit Fund. Although this non-GAAP financial measure is intended to enhance investors' understanding of our business and performance, it should not be considered an alternative to GAAP and it may not be comparable to similar non-GAAP measures used by other companies. The combined fair value of investments of TCG BDC and Credit Fund is the sum of the fair 6 value of investments of TCG BDC ($2.1 billion) and Credit Fund ($1.3 billion), excluding the fair value of TCG BDC's investments in Credit Fund ($191 million).
