expenses were $13.8 million for the first quarter as compared to $13 million in the prior quarter. Expenses were up quarter-over-quarter primarily driven by an increase in incentive fees and an increase in interest expenses due to higher average daily borrowings during the quarter. NAV was down quarter-over-quarter. We ended Q1 with net asset value per share at $17.25 versus $17.65 in the prior quarter. The largest driver in our NAV decline came from our investment in Animal Supply, which we disclosed last quarter. Our supplemental earnings presentation provides a NAV bridge to walk you through the changes from the fourth quarter to the first quarter.

The company had $46 million in accumulated undistributed net investment income at quarter end, resulting from net investment income that has consistently exceeded our dividend. This equates to $1.14 per share on current shares outstanding.

During the first quarter, we increased the size of our revolving credit facility to $795 million, up from $695 million. We were pleased with our ability to attract new lending counterparties into the facility. As of March 31, total debt commitments were $950 million, including the company's unsecured convertible debt. These debt commitments provide the company with ample capacity to continue to prudently grow the balance sheet.

With that, I will turn it back to Brendan.
