Highlight of Business Operations:We seek to create a diverse portfolio that includes senior secured, unitranche, mezzanine and second lien loans and warrants and minority equity securities by investing approximately $10 to $25 million of capital, on average, in the securities of middle-market companies. We may also selectively invest more than $25 million in the securities of some portfolio companies and generally expect that the size of our individual investments will vary proportionately with the size of our capital base.
