First Quarter 2021 Financial Results In describing the Company’s first quarter activities, Joseph B. Alala, III, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, stated, “We are pleased to report a significant increase in NAV per share, driven by improved performance of our portfolio of investments and some recent realized exits. Current liquidity, coupled with recent and anticipated repayments, will allow us to continue to reduce our total debt-to-equity ratio, currently at 1.6x as of March 31, 2021. Subsequent to quarter end, we announced a strategic partnership whereby Mount Logan Management, LLC will serve as investment advisor for the Company, subject to shareholder approval. We think this is the optimal time for the Company to attach to a larger credit platform as Capitala continues to focus on the management of its various private funds focused on equity returns with yields.” Total investment income was $4.9 million for the first quarter of 2021, compared to $7.1 million in the first quarter of 2020. The decline was attributable to lower interest and fee income, resulting primarily from a decrease in our debt portfolio.
