Results of Operations and Financial Condition
On October 30, 2018, Apollo Investment Corporation (the “Registrant”) issued a press release announcing its financial results for the quarter ended September 30, 2018. The text of the press release is included as Exhibit 99.1 to this Form 8-K.
The information disclosed under this Item 2.02, including Exhibit 99.1 hereto, is being furnished and shall not be deemed to be “filed” for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and shall not be deemed incorporated by reference into any filing made under the Securities Act of 1933, except as expressly set forth by specific reference in such filing.
Stock Repurchase Plan
The Registrant issued a press release, filed herewith as Exhibit 99.1, and by this reference incorporated herein, on October 30, 2018 announcing a new $50 million stock repurchase plan (the “Repurchase Plan”). The Repurchase Plan is in addition to the Registrant's existing share repurchase authorization, of which approximately $3.3 million of repurchase capacity remains. Accordingly, the Registrant now has approximately $53.3 million available for stock repurchase under its Repurchase Plan.
Reverse Stock Split
The Registrant issued a press release, filed herewith as Exhibit 99.1, and by this reference incorporated herein, on October 30, 2018 announcing that on October 30, 2018 the Registrant’s board of directors approved a one-for-three reverse stock split (the “Reverse Stock Split”) of the Registrant’s shares of common stock (the “Shares”). The Reverse Stock Split is expected to take effect one November 30, 2018 (the “Effective Time”). At the Effective Time, every three issued and outstanding Shares will be converted into one Share. As a result of the Reverse Stock Split, for example, if the one-for-three reverse stock split were effective as of September 30, 2018, the number of outstanding shares of the Company’s common stock would be reduced from 212,056,994 to approximately 70,685,665, subject to adjustments due to potential stock repurchases and the cancellation of fractional shares associated with the reverse stock split.
No fractional shares will be issued in connection with the Reverse Stock Split and fractional shares shall be eliminated by paying cash for the fair value of a fractional share of Shares. The Reverse Stock Split will apply to all of the Registrant’s outstanding Shares and therefore will not affect any shareholder’s relative ownership percentage. Shareholders will receive information from the Registrant’s transfer agent or their broker-dealer regarding their holdings of Shares following the Reverse Stock Split. Shareholders are not required to take any action to effectuate the exchange of their stock.
The information disclosed under this Item 8.01, including Exhibit 99.1 hereto, is being furnished and shall not be deemed to be “filed” for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and shall not be deemed incorporated by reference into any filing made under the Securities Act of 1933, except as expressly set forth by specific reference in such filing.
