Christopher J. Flynn

Thanks Sabrina, and good morning, everyone. I will begin today's call with an update on our Q3 financial results and we'll then move on to the progress we've made in managing and repositioning our portfolio.

Our net investment income for the quarter was $0.22 per share versus our dividend of $0.21 per share. Our NAV was $8.34 per share as of September 30, representing a modest decline of less than 2% quarter-over-quarter. The NAV decline was primarily isolated to one credit, Holland, which we've highlighted on our last few earnings calls as a credit that we're closely monitoring. Our interest in the Logan JV were also marked down this quarter largely due to market technicals in the syndicated market and we took a small markdown on our equity holdings in OEM. These changes were offset by the incremental NAV gains on our sale of Copperweld and a 5% accretion from our stock repurchase. Holland
