RESULTS OF OPERATIONS FOR THE QUARTER ENDED MARCH 31, 2021

Investment Income
Investment income increased to $221.6 million for the three months ended March 31, 2021 from $204.7 million for the three months ended March 31, 2020. In addition to the growth in the portfolio, the incremental increase in investment income was primarily due to an increase in dividend income that was not earned as of March 31, 2020.

Expenses
Total expenses, after the effect of management and incentive fee waivers, increased to $117.8 million for the three months ended March 31, 2021 from $56.4 million for the three months ended March 31, 2020, which was primarily due to expiration of the management and incentive fee waiver in October 2020 and an increase in interest expense. The increase in interest expense was primarily driven by an increase in average daily borrowings, partially offset by a decrease in the average interest rate period over period.

Liquidity and Capital Resources
As of March 31, 2021, we had $255.3 million in cash and restricted cash, $5.6 billion in total principal value of debt outstanding, and $1.4 billion of undrawn capacity on our credit facilities. The Company's weighted average interest rate on debt outstanding remained at 3.2% for the three months ended March 31, 2021 and December 31, 2020. Ending debt to equity was 0.92x and 0.87x during the three months ended March 31, 2021 and December 31, 2020, respectively.

COVID-19 Developments
We continue to assess the impact of COVID-19 on our portfolio companies. For additional information about the COVID-19 pandemic and its potential impact on our results of operations and financial condition, please refer to the "COVID-19 Developments" section and additional disclosure in our Form 10-Q for the quarter ended March 31, 2021.
