Due to the Company's revisions to its previously issued financial statements to correct errors principally related to net deferred tax assets and liabilities, all prior period comparisons contained within this press release reflect restated financial results.

Operating Results -- Year ended December 31, 2009

Investment income totaled $24.5 million for the year ended December 31, 2009, with $23.5 million attributable to the Company's targeted portfolio investments and $1.0 million attributable to investments in corporate notes, cash and cash equivalents and fee income. Operating expenses for the year ended December 31, 2009 were $14.6 million and included $6.4 million of advisory and management and capital gains incentive fees, $2.9 million of interest expense and credit facility fees and $5.3 million of general and administrative expenses. The resulting net investment income, including a $0.02 million tax provision, was $9.9 million.

The Company had a net realized capital loss before income taxes of $14.3 million, including the $14.8 million write-off of its investment in Nighthawk Transport I, LP during the fourth quarter of 2009.

The Company experienced a net increase in unrealized depreciation before income taxes of $5.6 million, consisting of a $1.0 million decrease in targeted portfolio fair value, a $2.8 million increase in the fair value of corporate notes and a $7.4 million decrease, due to realizations, in the fair value of commodity derivative instruments.

After giving effect to the $0.64 per common share dividend declared during the year, stockholders' equity (net assets) per share as of December 31, 2009 was $11.10.

Because the write-off of the investment in Nighthawk Transport I, LP was treated as an ordinary loss, approximately 78% of the dividends declared in 2009 represented a return of capital for tax purposes.

Subsequent Events

In January 2010, the Company repaid the entire $67.5 million balance on its Investment Facility. In February 2010, the Company had a letter of credit in the amount of $2.594 million issued under the Investment Facility with respect to its investment in Alden Resources, LLC ("Alden"). In March 2010, the Company borrowed $64.9 million under the Investment Facility. As of the date of this press release, the Investment Facility is fully drawn.

In February 2010, the Company amended its Senior Secured Credit Facility (the "Alden Facility") with Alden. The amendment provides Alden with a $3.0 million Revolving Credit Facility (the "Revolver") with initial availability of $2.7 million. Additionally, the Company arranged a $3.25 million Letter of Credit Facility (the "L/C Facility") for Alden through SunTrust Bank. The letter of credit under the L/C Facility was issued on behalf of Alden and guaranteed by the Company. Initially, a $2.594 million letter of credit was issued to secure a series of reclamation bonds issued by Argo Surety. The terms of the Revolver and L/C Facility are the same as the Alden Facility (12% cash interest, 15% PIK). As additional consideration for providing the Revolver and the L/C Facility, the Company will earn an incremental 0.5% Royalty Interest on all of Alden's revenue.

In February 2010, the Company and Black Pool Energy Partners, LLC ("Black Pool") agreed to amend the Company's Credit Agreement with Black Pool. Under the amended terms, the Company consented to Black Pool's sale of a 37.5% working interest in certain offshore wells to a third party for $7.1 million. Proceeds from the sale will be used to pay completion costs for the offshore wells, to repay debt and to retire accounts payable. As consideration for its consent, interest on the facility will increase from 12% to 15% (LIBOR + 11% with a floor of 4%).

In March 2010, the Company and Tammany Oil & Gas, LLC ("Tammany") agreed to amend the Company's Credit Agreement with Tammany. Under the amended terms, the Company extended the maturity of the Credit Agreement from March 21, 2010 to April 21, 2010. As consideration for the extension, the Company received an amendment fee of $125,000.
