PORTFOLIO AND INVESTMENT ACTIVITY

During the three months ended December 31, 2020, the Company entered into $73.4 million of new debt commitments with six portfolio companies, funded debt investments totaling $67.4 million to nine portfolio companies, acquired warrants valued at $2.0 million in 11 portfolio companies and made equity investments of $0.5 million in three portfolio companies. Debt investments funded during the quarter carried a weighted average annualized portfolio yield of 14.3% at origination. During the quarter, the Company had $63.0 million of principal prepayments and $10.8 million of scheduled principal amortization. The weighted average annualized portfolio yield on total debt investments for the fourth quarter was 15.2%. The Company calculates weighted average portfolio yield as the annualized rate of the interest income recognized during the period divided by the average amortized cost of debt investments in the portfolio during the period.

As of December 31, 2020, the Company held debt investments with 33 portfolio companies, warrants in 64 portfolio companies and equity investments in 24 portfolio companies. The total cost and fair value of these investments were $662.4 million and $633.8 million, respectively.

SIGNED TERM SHEETS

During the three months ended December 31, 2020, TPC entered into $172.3 million of non-binding term sheets to venture growth stage companies. These opportunities are subject to underwriting conditions including, but not limited to, the completion of due diligence, negotiation of definitive documentation and investment committee approval, as well as compliance with TPC’s allocation policy. Accordingly, there is no assurance that any or all of these transactions will be completed or assigned to the Company.

UNFUNDED COMMITMENTS

As of December 31, 2020, the Company’s unfunded commitments totaled $132.3 million, of which $17.5 million is dependent upon portfolio companies reaching certain milestones. Of the $132.3 million of unfunded commitments, $122.3 million will expire during 2021 and $10.0 million will expire in or after 2022 if not drawn prior to expiration. Since these commitments may expire without being drawn, unfunded commitments do not necessarily represent future cash requirements or future earning assets for the Company.

RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

Total investment and other income was $23.4 million for the fourth quarter of 2020, representing a weighted average annualized portfolio yield of 15.2% on total debt investments, as compared to $21.3 million and 15.3% for the fourth quarter of 2019. The increase in total investment and other income was primarily due to higher weighted average principal outstanding on our income-bearing debt investments and greater prepayment activity, partially offset by a decrease in the U.S. Prime Rate. For the year ended December 31, 2020, the Company’s total investment and other income was $91.2 million, as compared to $73.4 million for the year ended December 31, 2019, representing a weighted average annualized portfolio yield on total debt investments of 13.8% and 15.0%, respectively.

Operating expenses for the fourth quarter of 2020 were $11.5 million as compared to $10.2 million for the fourth quarter of 2019. Operating expenses for the fourth quarter of 2020 consisted of $3.5 million of interest expense and amortization of fees, $3.1 million of base management fees, $2.8 million of income incentive fees, $0.4 million of administration agreement expenses and $1.7 million of general and administrative expenses. Operating expenses for the fourth quarter of 2019 consisted of $4.0 million of interest expense and amortization of fees, $2.5 million of base management fees, $1.4 million of income incentive fees, $0.5 million of administration agreement expenses and $1.8 million of general and administrative expenses. The Company’s total operating expenses were $43.3 million and $35.1 million for the years ended December 31, 2020 and 2019, respectively.

For the fourth quarter of 2020, the Company recorded net investment income of $11.9 million, or $0.39 per share, as compared to $11.1 million, or $0.45 per share, for the fourth quarter of 2019. The increase in net investment income between periods was driven primarily by higher weighted average principal outstanding on our income-bearing debt investments and greater prepayment activity. Net investment income for the year ended December 31, 2020 was $47.9 million, or $1.57 per share, compared to $38.3 million, or $1.54 per share, for the year ended December 31, 2019.

During the fourth quarter of 2020, the Company recorded $4.0 million, or $0.13 per share, of net realized gains on investments, primarily consisting of $4.2 million from the realization of gains from the sale of CrowdStrike, Inc. shares, the sale of Medallia, Inc. shares and the acquisition of Freshly Inc. by Nestle USA, offset by $0.2 million of other net realized losses. During the fourth quarter of 2019, the Company recorded net realized gains on investments of $1.2 million, or $0.05 per share.

Net unrealized losses on investments for the fourth quarter of 2020 were $11.1 million, or $0.36 per share, resulting from the reversal and recognition of $2.8 million of previously recorded unrealized gains associated with the shares of CrowdStrike, Inc., Medallia, Inc. and Freshly Inc. that were sold during the quarter, and $8.3 million of net unrealized losses on our investment portfolio resulting primarily from fair value adjustments. Net unrealized losses on investments for the fourth quarter of 2019 were $6.7 million, or $0.27 per share, resulting primarily from market-price related changes in two publicly-traded equity and warrant investments, the reversal and recognition of previously recorded net unrealized gains into income or realized gains, and credit-related adjustments affecting fair value estimates on the portfolio. The Company’s net realized and unrealized losses were $12.5 million for the year ended December 31, 2020, compared to net realized and unrealized losses of $6.5 million for the year ended December 31, 2019.

The Company’s net increase in net assets resulting from operations for the fourth quarter of 2020 was $4.8 million, or $0.15 per share, as compared to a net increase in net assets resulting from operations of $5.6 million, or $0.23 per share, for the fourth quarter of 2019. For the year ended December 31, 2020, the Company’s net increase in net assets resulting from operations was $35.3 million, or $1.16 per share, as compared to $31.8 million, or $1.28 per share, for the year ended December 31, 2019.

CREDIT QUALITY

The Company maintains a credit watch list with portfolio companies placed into one of five categories, with Clear, or 1, being the highest rating and Red, or 5, being the lowest. Generally, all new loans receive an initial grade of White, or 2, unless the portfolio company’s credit quality meets the characteristics of another risk category.

As of December 31, 2020, the weighted average investment ranking of the Company’s debt investment portfolio was 2.13, as compared to 2.08 as of the end of the prior quarter. During the quarter ended December 31, 2020, portfolio company credit category changes, excluding fundings and repayments, consisted of the following: one portfolio company with a principal balance of $25.0 million was upgraded from White (2) to Clear (1); one portfolio company with a principal balance of $21.4 million was upgraded from Yellow (3) to White (2); one portfolio company with a principal balance of $10.0 million was removed from Yellow (3) as a result of prepayment in full; one portfolio company with a principal balance of $25.0 million was downgraded from White (2) to Yellow (3); and one portfolio company with a principal balance of $29.5 million was downgraded from Yellow (3) to Red (5). Additional information regarding the Company’s credit rating methodology is detailed in its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2020.
