2. Trend of the Operating Margin (5-year average). The company with an uptrend profit margin has a higher rank.
••3. Consistency of the profitability
4. Piotroski F-Score
5. Predictability Rank•

Business Description

Industry: Asset Management » Asset Management
Compare:AMP, AMG, BEN, BLK, TTS » details
Traded in other countries:1G7.Germany
Gladstone Capital Corp was incorporated under the General Corporation Laws of the State of Maryland on May 30, 2001 and completed its initial public offering on August 24, 2001. The Company is a closed-end, non-diversified management investment Company that has elected to be treated as a business development company under the Investment Company Act of 1940. Its investment objectives are to achieve a high level of current income by investing in debt securities, consisting mainly of senior notes, senior subordinated notes and junior subordinated notes, of established private businesses that are owned by leveraged buyout funds, individual investors or are family-owned businesses, with a particular focus on senior notes. In addition, the Company might acquire from others existing loans that meet this profile. Gladstone invests mainly in three categories of debt of private companies: Senior Notes, Senior Subordinated Notes, and Junior Subordinated Notes. The Company typically uses senior notes to cover a ample portion of the funding needed for operation. Senior notes might include revolving lines of credit, senior term loans, senior syndicated loans and senior last-out tranche loans. Senior subordinated notes include second lien loans and syndicated second lien loans. Gladstone Management Corporation is the Company's external investment adviser, along with the company's affiliates Gladstone Commercial Corporation. The Company targets small and medium-sized private businesses that meet some of the following criteria: the potential for growth in cash flow, adequate assets for loan collateral, experienced management teams, profitable operation based on the borrower's cash flow, reasonable capitalization of the borrower, and the potential to realize appreciation and gain liquidity. Pending investment in private companies, the Gladstone invests its otherwise uninvested cash mainly in cash, cash items, government securities, or high-quality debt securities. Competitors include private equity funds, leveraged buyout funds, venture capital funds, investment banks and other equity and non-equity based investment funds, and other financing sources, including traditional financial services companies such as commercial banks.
