Traded in other countries:22P.Germany
PennantPark Floating Rate Capital was formed on October 28, 2010 as a Maryland Corporation. It is a newly organized, externally managed, closed-end, non-diversified management investment company. It intends to qualify annually, as a regulated investment company. It principally invests in U.S. middle-market private companies in the form of senior secured loans, mezzanine debt, and equity investments. From time to time, the Company may also invest in public companies whose securities are thinly traded. Its investment objective is to seek high current income. It currently intends to focus primarily on the following attributes: Leading, defensible market positions, Investing in stable portfolio companies with positive cash flow, Proven management teams, Private equity sponsorship & Investments in different portfolio companies and industries. It believes that the limited amount of capital available to the middle-market companies, coupled with the desire of these companies for flexible sources of capital, creates an attractive investment environment for PennantPark Floating Rate Capital: it believes middle-market companies have faced increasing difficulty in raising debt through the capital markets, middle-market companies have faced difficulty raising debt in private markets, current credit market dislocation for middle-market companies improves the risk-adjusted returns of its investments & there is substantial supply of opportunities resulting from refinancing. It believes that it has the following competitive advantages over other capital providers to middle-market companies: Experienced Management Team, Disciplined Investment Approach with Strong Value Orientation, Ability to Source and Evaluate Transactions through the Investment Adviser's Research Capability and Established Network, Flexible Transaction Structuring & Longer Investment Horizon with Attractive Publicly Traded Model. Its primary competitors provide financing to middle-market companies and include other business development companies and closed-end funds, commercial and investment banks, commercial finance companies and, to the extent they provide an alternative form of financing, private equity funds. Additionally, alternative investment vehicles, such as hedge funds, frequently invest in middle-market companies. As a result, competition for investment opportunities at middle-market companies can be intense.
