During the quarter ended June 30, 2009, the Company funded $12.8 million to existing portfolio companies and received $33.5 million in repayments. The Company did not add any new companies to its portfolio during the second quarter of 2009. At June 30, 2009, the Company's targeted investment portfolio consisted of eighteen portfolio companies totaling $274.3 million. The Company had commitments to fund an additional $6.4 million approximately on total committed amounts of $280.5 million.

The weighted average yield on targeted portfolio investments (excluding revenue from hedging transactions) was 4.09% at June 30, 2009. The weighted average yield on investments in corporate notes was 5.82%, on investments in U.S Treasury Bills and cash equivalents was 0.06% and 0.05%, respectively, as of June 30, 2009. The weighted average yield on the Company's total capital invested at June 30, 2009 was 3.34%.

Operating Results - Three months ended June 30, 2009

Investment income totaled $5.5 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2009, with $6.2 million attributable to interest from the Company's targeted portfolio investments, $1.9 million attributable to income from commodity derivative instruments, $2.8 million net loss attributable to royalty income net of amortization and $0.2 million net income attributable to investments in corporate notes, cash equivalents and fee income from third parties and affiliates. Operating expenses for the quarter ended June 30, 2009 were $4.0 million and included $1.6 million of advisory and management fees, $1.1 million of interest expense and credit facility fees and $1.3 million of general and administrative expenses. The resulting net investment income for the second quarter of 2009, including a $0.4 million tax benefit, was $1.9 million.

For the three months ended June 30, 2009, the Company experienced a net increase in unrealized depreciation of $4.4 million, consisting of a $3.0 million decrease in targeted portfolio fair value, a $3.1 million decrease in the fair value of commodity derivative instruments and a $1.7 million increase in the fair value of corporate notes. The decrease in targeted portfolio fair value was largely a result of changes in the estimated current market values of underlying assets. The decrease in the fair value of commodity derivative instruments was a result of the reversal of 2008 unrealized appreciation due to realizations in the second quarter of 2009.

Overall, we had a net decrease in stockholders' equity (net assets) resulting from operations of $2.6 million, or $0.12 per common share for the three months ended June 30, 2009 and dividends declared during the period of $0.12 per common share, resulting in stockholders' equity (net assets) per common share of $10.99 as of June 30, 2009.

Subsequent Events

In May of this year, Nighthawk Transport I, LP and its subsidiaries (collectively, "Nighthawk") defaulted under the terms of its senior credit facility. Nighthawk was unable to restructure its obligations under the senior credit facility and on July 10, 2009 filed a voluntary petition under Chapter 7 of the United States Bankruptcy Code. The Company holds a 16.98% participation in a $109 million senior secured, second lien facility for Nighthawk. As of July 21, 2009, the outstanding balance due to the Company under this facility was $14.5 million and as of June 30, 2009, NGPC recorded its investment in Nighthawk at a fair value of zero. Although NGPC is pursuing its claims, it does not expect a material recovery.

On July 20, 2009, the Company closed a recapitalization transaction with Alden Resources, LLC ("Alden"), a Kentucky-based specialty coal producer. As part of the recapitalization, NGPC Asset Holdings, LP, a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company, purchased $5.8 million of preferred units representing substantially all of the equity interest in Alden. The proceeds of the preferred equity issuance will be used for capital expenditures, working capital, and general corporate purposes. In addition to acquiring a majority ownership position, NGPC will hold a majority of the seats on the board of directors of Alden. NGPC also restructured its existing $36.5 million Senior Secured Credit Facility with Alden into an amended and restated $60 million two tranche Senior Secured Credit Facility with initial funded amounts of $20 million in Tranche A Notes and $19.5 million in Tranche B Notes. The Tranche A and Tranche B Notes bear interest at LIBOR plus 9%, with a LIBOR floor of 3%. Both the Tranche A Notes and the Tranche B Notes have the option to pay interest in kind (PIK) at a coupon rate of LIBOR plus 12%, with a LIBOR floor of 3%.

On July 16, 2009, the Company repaid the entire $75 million balance on its Treasury Credit Facility with proceeds from the sale of its treasury securities. There are no plans to renew or extend the Treasury Credit Facility at its maturity on August 31, 2009. In addition, on July 9, 2009, the Company repaid the outstanding balance of its Investment Credit Facility, leaving the Company with no debt. The Company is currently in discussions with its bank group to extend the Investment Credit Facility beyond its current maturity of August 31, 2010. The $87.5 million currently available under the Investment Credit Facility, combined with approximately $19 million of cash currently held on the balance sheet, should provide sufficient liquidity to make additional investments it deems appropriate.

On July 31, 2009, BSR Loco Bayou, LLC ("BSR") repaid in its entirety its $2.72 million Senior Secured Multiple Advance Term Loan and accrued interest of $0.27 million. NGPC continues to hold its overriding royalty interest and warrants in BSR.
