NEW YORK, May 02, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MidCap Financial Investment Corporation (NASDAQ: MFIC) or the “Company,” today announced financial results for its quarter ended March 31, 2023. The Company’s net investment income was $0.45 per share for the quarter ended March 31, 2023, compared to $0.43 per share for the quarter ended December 31, 2022. The Company’s net asset value (“NAV”) was $15.18 per share as of March 31, 2023, compared to $15.10 as of December 31, 2022.

Mr. Tanner Powell, the Company’s Chief Executive Officer commented, “We are very pleased with our results for the March quarter which benefited from our new fee structure which became effective during the quarter, as well as the positive net impact of higher base rates, and strong fee and prepayment income. We are delivering an attractive dividend yield at NAV for shareholders while also conservatively retaining a portion of earnings. We believe the fundamentals and overall credit quality of our corporate lending portfolio remain healthy, demonstrating the value of our investment strategy of focusing on true senior secured loans to middle market companies.”

Mr. Gregory W. Hunt, the Company’s Chief Financial Officer commented, “In April, we were pleased to extend the maturity of our senior secured revolving credit facility by over two years to April 2028. We greatly appreciate the support of our lending partners.”
