During the first quarter of 2021, the Valuation Committee, which was composed of four independent directors, adjusted the fair values of the private companies in our portfolio. In arriving at these determinations and consistent with the Fund’s valuation procedures, and ASC 820, the Valuation Committee took into account information from an independent valuation firm and considered many factors, including the performance of the portfolio companies, recent transactions in the companies’ securities, as well as the impact of changes in market multiples within certain sectors.

For the three months ended March 31, 2021, the Fund reported investment income of approximately $1.3 million. The Fund reported net investment income of approximately $508 thousand. The Fund reported net realized and unrealized gains on investments, net of deferred taxes, of approximately $9.8 million for the quarter.

Throughout the quarter, the Fund continued its efforts to manage its portfolio prudently, including working with its portfolio companies and their management teams to seek to enhance performance and uncover potential exit opportunities.
