FS Investment Corp Announces Earnings Results for the First Quarter Ended March 31, 2016; Provides Earnings Guidance for the Full Year 2016

FS Investment Corp. announced earnings results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2016. Net investment income for the first quarter 2016 was $0.21 per share, unchanged compared to the first quarter of 2015, and lower than most recent quarters, driven primarily by lower fee income from prepayments and direct originations. Adjusted net investment income for the first quarter of 2016 was $0.21 per share compared to $0.23 per share for the quarter ended March 31, 2015. Net change in unrealized appreciation on investments during the first quarter of 2016 totaled approximately $48.3 million or $0.20 per share, which was primarily attributable to depreciation in the company's senior secured bond investment in Advanced Lighting and Logan's Roadhouse. Realized losses of $13.7 million or $0.06 per share during the first quarter were driven by sales of a portion of the company's investment in Avaya. As of March 31, 2016, NAV was $8.82 per share, down from $9.10 per share as of December 31, 2015, and $9.90 per share as of March 31, 2015. Net investment income was $49.938 million against $51.649 million a year ago. Total net realized and unrealized loss on investments was $62.035 million against total net realized and unrealized gain on investments of $18.777 million a year ago. Net decrease in net assets resulting from operations per basic and diluted per share was $0.05 against net increase in net assets resulting from operations per basic and diluted per share of $0.29 a year ago. However, the company expects net investment income to fully cover and exceed distributions for the full year 2016.
