GuruFocus Profitability Rank ranks how profitable a company is and how likely the company’s business will stay that way. It is based on these factors:

1. Operating Margin
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•

The maximum rank is 10. A rank of 7 or higher means a higher profitability and may stay that way. A rank of 3 or lower indicates that the company has had trouble to make a profit.

Profitability Rank is not directly related to the Financial Strength Rank. But if a company is consistently profitable, its financial strength will be stronger.

Business Description

Industry: Asset Management » Asset Management
Compare: » details
Solar Senior Capital Ltd was incorporated in December 2010 as a Maryland corporation. The Company is a closed-end, externally managed, non-diversified management investment company that has elected to be treated as a business development company. The Company invests primarily in U.S. middle market companies, where it believes the supply of primary capital is limited and the investment opportunities are most attractive. The Company's investment objective is to seek to maximize current income consistent with the preservation of capital. It seeks to achieve its investment objective by investing primarily in senior loans, including first lien, uni-tranche, and second lien debt instruments, made to private middle-market companies. The Company expects to invest in senior loans made primarily to private leveraged middle-market companies with approximately $20 million to $60 million of EBITDA. Its business model is focused primarily on the direct origination of investments through portfolio companies or their financial sponsors. The Company expects that its investments will generally range between $5 million and $30 million each, although it expects that this investment size will vary proportionately with the size of its capital base. As of December 31, 2012, the Company's investments totaled $212.6 million and its net asset value was $174.1 million. Its portfolio was comprised of debt investments in 31 portfolio companies and its income producing assets, which represented 100% of Company's total portfolio, had a weighted average annualized yield on a fair value basis of approximately 7.8%. The Company's primary competitors provide financing to middle-market companies and include other business development companies, commercial and investment banks, commercial financing companies and, to the extent they provide an alternative form of financing, private equity funds.
