Business Description

Industry: Asset Management » Asset Management
Compare: » details
Traded in other countries:ZSL.Germany
Solar Capital Ltd. a Maryland corporation formed in November 2007, is a closed-end, externally managed non-diversified management investment company that has elected to be treated as a business development company under the Investment Company Act of 1940. The Company invests in leveraged middle market companies in the form of senior secured loans, mezzanine loans and equity securities, and also invests in public companies that are thinly traded. Its business model is focused primarily on the direct origination of investments through portfolio companies or their financial sponsors. The Company is managed by Solar Capital Partners LLC. Solar Capital Management LLC provides the administrative services necessary for the Company to operate. The Company determines its revenue recognition policies which are as follows: Sales: Gains or losses on the sale of investments are calculated by using the specific identification method; Interest Income: Interest income, adjusted for amortization of premium and accretion of discount, is recorded on an accrual basis. Origination, closing and/or commitment fees associated with investments in portfolio companies are accreted into interest income over the respective terms of the applicable loans; Non-accrual: Loans are placed on non-accrual status when principal or interest payments are past due 30 days or more or when there is reasonable doubt that principal or interest will be collected. Accrued interest is generally reversed when a loan is placed on non-accrual status. Interest payments received on non-accrual loans may be recognized as income or applied to principal depending upon management's judgment about ultimate collectability of principal. The Company's primary competitors provide financing to middle-market companies and include other BDCs, commercial and investment banks, commercial financing companies and, to the extent they provide an alternative form of financing, private equity funds.
