NEW YORK, Nov. 05, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Apollo Investment Corporation
(NASDAQ: AINV) or the “Company,” or “Apollo Investment,” today
announced financial results for its second fiscal quarter ended September 30,
2020. The Company’s net investment income was $0.43 per share for the
quarter ended September 30, 2020, compared to $0.43 per share for the quarter
ended June 30, 2020. The Company’s net asset value (“NAV”) was $15.44
per share as of September 30, 2020, compared to $15.29 as of June 30, 2020.

On November 5, 2020, the Board of Directors declared a distribution of $0.31
per share payable on January 7, 2021 to shareholders of record as of
December 21, 2020. On November 5, 2020, the Company’s Board also declared a
supplemental distribution of $0.05 per share payable on January 7, 2021 to
shareholders of record as of December 21, 2020.

Mr. Howard Widra, Apollo Investment’s Chief Executive Officer commented,
“During the quarter, we made significant progress deleveraging to within our
target range of 1.40x to 1.60x. Net leverage at the end of September was
1.56x, down from 1.66x at the end of June. The quarter over quarter decline
was due to a combination of strong repayment activity, a net gain on the
portfolio, and retained earnings. Notably, repayments included $21 million
from non-core assets which we continue to seek to monetize. Furthermore, we
have visibility into meaningful additional repayments for the remainder
December quarter. Given the reduction in our leverage, combined with our
better understanding of how our portfolio companies have been affected by the
pandemic and of their expected performance, we can now shift our focus to
making new commitments.” Mr. Howard Widra continued, “As announced last
quarter, in addition to a quarterly base distribution of 31-cents per share,
the Company’s Board of Directors expects to also declare a supplemental
distribution in an amount to be determined each quarter. To that end, the
Board of Directors, at the recommendation of management, has declared a 5-cent
supplemental distribution for the quarter.”
