Management Commentary

“The fourth quarter capped off a year of heightened level of deal activity in the lower middle market, strong operating performance and underlying portfolio value appreciation. Boosted by $42.1 million in net realized gains as we continued to monetize equity investments, NAV grew to $487.8 million, or $19.96 per share. In recognition of our strong portfolio performance throughout the year and high levels of net realized gains, the Board of Directors elected to increase the total dividend to shareholders to $0.53 per share for the first quarter of 2022,” said Edward Ross, Chairman and CEO of Fidus Investment Corporation. “From an originations perspective, we maintained our focus on companies that are relatively insulated from cost pressures impacting the current business environment. However, due to a number of deals closing late in the quarter, repayments outpaced originations for the quarter. Looking ahead, our proven underwriting principles, relationships with deal sponsors and strategy of selectively investing in high-quality companies with defensive characteristics and positive long-term outlooks keep us well positioned to generate attractive risk-adjusted returns for the benefit of our shareholders.”

(1)   Supplemental information regarding adjusted net investment income:

On a supplemental basis, we provide information relating to adjusted net investment income, which is a non-GAAP measure. This measure is provided in addition to, but not as a substitute for, net investment income. Adjusted net investment income represents net investment income excluding any capital gains incentive fee expense or (reversal) attributable to realized and unrealized gains and losses. The management agreement with our investment adviser provides that a capital gains incentive fee is determined and paid annually with respect to cumulative realized capital gains (but not unrealized capital gains) to the extent such realized capital gains exceed realized and unrealized losses. In addition, we accrue, but do not pay, a capital gains incentive fee in connection with any unrealized capital appreciation, as appropriate. As such, we believe that adjusted net investment income is a useful indicator of operations exclusive of any capital gains incentive fee expense or (reversal) attributable to realized and unrealized gains and losses. The presentation of this additional information is not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for financial results prepared in accordance with GAAP. Reconciliations of net investment income to adjusted net investment income are set forth in Schedule 1.

The following table provides a summary of our operating results for the three months ended December 31, 2021, as compared to the same period in 2020 (dollars in thousands, except per share data):

                         
    Three Months Ended December 31,              
    2021     2020     $ Change     % Change

Net investment income   $ 2,448     $ 6,038     $ (3,590 )     (59.5 %)
Net investment income per share   $ 0.10     $ 0.25     $ (0.15 )     (60.0 %)
                         
Adjusted net investment income (1)   $ 12,006     $ 10,734     $ 1,272       11.9 %
Adjusted net investment income per share (1)   $ 0.49     $ 0.44     $ 0.05       11.4 %
                         
Net increase (decrease) in net assets resulting from operations   $ 50,238     $ 29,517     $ 20,721       70.2 %
Net increase (decrease) in net assets resulting from operations per share   $ 2.06     $ 1.20     $ 0.86       71.7 %

The $0.5 million increase in total investment income for the three months ended December 31, 2021, as compared to the same period in 2020 was primarily attributable to (i) a $1.4 million increase in fee income resulting from an increase in origination, management and prepayment fees, (ii) a $0.3 million decrease in total interest income resulting from a decrease in average debt investment balances outstanding, and (iii) a $0.6 million decrease in dividend income due to decreased levels of distributions received from equity investments.

For the three months ended December 31, 2021, total expenses, including the base management and income incentive fee waivers and income tax provision, were $21.7 million, an increase of $4.1 million, or 23.1% from the $17.6 million of total expenses, including the base management and income incentive fee waivers and income tax provision, for the three months ended December 31, 2020. The increase was primarily attributable to (i) a $4.9 million increase in capital gains incentive fee accrued, (ii) a $0.2 million decrease in professional fees, and (iii) a $0.2 million decrease in interest and financing expenses due to a decrease in average borrowings outstanding and the weighted average interest rate.

Net investment income decreased by $3.6 million, or (59.5%), to $2.4 million during the three months ended December 31, 2021 as compared to the same period in 2020, as a result of the $4.1 million increase in total expenses, including base management and income incentive fee waivers and income tax provision partially offset by the $0.5 million increase in total investment income. Adjusted net investment income,(1) which excludes the capital gains incentive fee accrual, increased by $1.3 million, or 11.9%, to $12.0 million.

For the three months ended December 31, 2021, the total net realized gain/(loss) on investments, net of income tax (provision)/benefit on realized gains, was $39.9 million, as compared to total net realized gain/(loss) on investments, net of income tax (provision)/benefit on realized gains, of $(33.4) million for the same period in 2020.

The $5.3 million increase in total investment income for the year ended December 31, 2021 as compared to the same period in 2020 was primarily attributable to (i) a $5.9 million increase in fee income resulting from an increase in origination, management and prepayment fee income, (ii) a $0.2 million increase in dividend income due to increased levels of distributions received from equity investments, and (iii) a $0.8 million decrease in total interest income resulting from a decrease in average debt investment balances outstanding, partially offset by a higher weighted average yield on debt investment balances outstanding.

For the year ended December 31, 2021, total expenses, including the base management and incentive fee waivers and income tax provision, were $65.3 million, an increase of $19.8 million or 43.7%, from the $45.5 million of total expenses, including income tax provision, for the year ended December 31, 2020. The increase was primarily attributable to (i) a $19.9 million increase in capital gains incentive fees and a $1.7 million increase in income incentive fees including the one-time income incentive fee waiver in 2020, (ii) a $0.5 million decrease in interest and financing expenses due to a decrease in average borrowings outstanding and a decrease in weighted average interest rate on borrowings, and (iii) a $0.8 million decrease in professional fees.

Net investment income decreased by $14.5 million, or (36.6%), to $25.1 million during the year ended December 31, 2021 as compared to the same period in 2020, as a result of the $19.8 million increase in total expenses, including the base management and incentive fee waivers and income tax provision, partially offset by the $5.3 million increase in total investment income.

For the year ended December 31, 2021, the total net realized gain on investments, net of income tax provision on realized gains, was $53.8 million, as compared to total net realized loss on investments, net of income tax provision on realized gains, of $(1.5) million for the same period in 2020.

Portfolio and Investment Activities

As of December 31, 2021, the fair value of our investment portfolio totaled $719,124 and consisted of 70 active portfolio companies and eight portfolio companies that have sold their underlying operations. Our total portfolio investments at fair value were approximately 115.7% of the related cost basis as of December 31, 2021. As of December 31, 2021, 32 portfolio company’s debt investments bore interest at a variable rate, which represented $376.0 million, or 68.4%, of our debt investment portfolio on a fair value basis, and the remainder of our debt investment portfolio was comprised of fixed rate investments. As of December 31, 2021, our average active portfolio company investment at amortized cost was $8.8 million, which excludes investments in the eight portfolio companies that have sold their underlying operations. The weighted average yield on debt investments was 12.3% as of December 31, 2021. The weighted average yield was computed using the effective interest rates for debt investments at cost as of December 31, 2021, including the accretion of original issue discounts and loan origination fees, but excluding investments on non-accrual status and investments recorded as a secured borrowing, if any.

First Quarter 2022 Base Dividend of $0.36 and Supplemental Dividend of $0.17 Per Share Declared

On February 15, 2022, our board of directors declared a base dividend of $0.36 per share and a supplemental dividend of $0.17 per share for the fourth quarter. The dividends will be payable on March 25, 2022, to stockholders of record as of March 11, 2022

When declaring dividends, our board of directors reviews estimates of taxable income available for distribution, which differs from consolidated income under GAAP due to (i) changes in unrealized appreciation and depreciation, (ii) temporary and permanent differences in income and expense recognition, and (iii) the amount of undistributed taxable income carried over from a given year for distribution in the following year. The final determination of 2021 taxable income, as well as the tax attributes for 2021 dividends, will be made after the close of the 2021 tax year. The final tax attributes for 2021 dividends will generally include ordinary taxable income but may also include capital gains, qualified dividends and return of capital.

Fidus has adopted a dividend reinvestment plan (“DRIP”) that provides for reinvestment of dividends on behalf of its stockholders, unless a stockholder elects to receive cash. As a result, when we declare a cash dividend, stockholders who have not “opted out” of the DRIP at least two days prior to the dividend payment date will have their cash dividends automatically reinvested in additional shares of our common stock. Those stockholders whose shares are held by a broker or other financial intermediary may receive dividends in cash by notifying their broker or other financial intermediary of their election.

Schedule 1

Supplemental Information Regarding Adjusted Net Investment Income

On a supplemental basis, we provide information relating to adjusted net investment income, which is a non-GAAP measure. This measure is provided in addition to, but not as a substitute for, net investment income. Adjusted net investment income represents net investment income excluding any capital gains incentive fee expense or (reversal) attributable to realized and unrealized gains and losses. The management agreement with our advisor provides that a capital gains incentive fee is determined and paid annually with respect to cumulative realized capital gains (but not unrealized capital gains) to the extent such realized capital gains exceed realized and unrealized losses for such year, less the aggregate amount of any capital gains incentive fees paid in all prior years. In addition, we accrue, but do not pay, a capital gains incentive fee in connection with any unrealized capital appreciation, as appropriate. As such, we believe that adjusted net investment income is a useful indicator of operations exclusive of any capital gains incentive fee expense or (reversal) attributable to realized and unrealized gains and losses. The presentation of this additional information is not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for financial results prepared in accordance with GAAP. The following table provides a reconciliation of net investment income to adjusted net investment income for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2021 and 2020.

(1)   Adjusted net investment income per share amounts are calculated as adjusted net investment income dividend by weighted average shares outstanding for the period. Due to rounding, the sum of net investment income per share and capital gains incentive fee expense (reversal) amounts may not equal the adjusted net investment income per share amount presented here.
