Highlight of Business Operations: We currently concentrate our investments in companies having annual revenues of less than $200 million and/or an equity capitalization of less than $300 million. While the structure of our investments will vary, we invest primarily in the debt of established businesses. We seek to invest in entities that, as a general matter, have been operating for at least one year prior to the date of our investment and that will, at the time of our investment, have employees and revenues, and are cash flow positive. Many of these companies will have financial backing provided by private equity or venture capital funds or other financial or strategic sponsors at the time we make an investment.
We expect that our investments will generally range between $5 million and $30 million each, although this investment size may vary proportionately as the size of our capital base changes and market conditions warrant, and accrue interest at fixed or variable rates. As of June 30, 2010, our debt investments had stated interest rates of between 3.10% and 15.00% (excluding our investment in GenuTec Business Solutions, Inc. which carries a zero interest rate through October 30, 2014) and maturity dates of between 6 and 144 months (excluding our investment in WAICCS Las Vegas, LLC). In addition, our total portfolio had a weighted average yield on debt investments of approximately 13.0% including all investments in our portfolio.
Our loans may carry a provision for deferral of some or all of the interest payments and amendment fees, which will be added to the principal amount of the loan. This form of deferred income is referred to as payment-in-kind, or PIK, interest or other income and, when earned, is recorded as interest or other income and an increase in the principal amount of the loan. For the quarter ended June 30, 2010, we recognized approximately $204,000 of interest income attributable to PIK associated with our investments in Cavtel Holdings, LLC, Allen Systems Group, Inc., Pegasus Solutions, Inc. and Workflow Management, Inc., compared to PIK income of approximately $11,200 during the quarter ended June 30, 2009.
