Highlights for the Quarter: During the quarter ended June 30, 2020, the following significant events occurred:
First Quarter Results: Net investment income for the quarters ended June 30, 2020 and March 31, 2020 was $4.2 million, or $0.13 per weighted-average common share, and $14.8 million, or $0.45 per weighted-average common share, respectively. This decrease was primarily a result of an increase in total expenses, net of credits as well as a decrease in total investment income, quarter over quarter.
Total investment income during the quarters ended June 30, 2020 and March 31, 2020 was $10.7 million and $12.0 million, respectively. The quarter over quarter decrease was due to a $0.9 million decrease in interest income, primarily due to placing one investment on non-accrual status in the current quarter, as well as a $0.4 million decrease in success fee income, the timing of which can be variable.
Total expenses, net of credits, during the quarters ended June 30, 2020 and March 31, 2020, were $6.5 million and $(2.8) million, respectively. The quarter over quarter increase was primarily a result of a $0.8 million reversal of previously accrued capital gains-based incentive fees due to the net impact of realized and unrealized gains and losses in the current quarter compared to an $8.4 million reversal in the prior quarter and a $1.1 million reduction of credits to fees from the Adviser. Remaining expenses were relatively consistent quarter over quarter, with a slight increase primarily due to higher tax and stockholder expenses.
Net asset value per common share as of June 30, 2020 decreased to $10.87, compared to $11.17 as of March 31, 2020. The quarter over quarter decrease was primarily due to $9.9 million, or $0.30 per common share, of distributions paid to common shareholders, and $4.9 million, or $0.15 per common share, of net unrealized depreciation of investments, partially offset by $4.2 million, or $0.13 per common share, of net investment income and $0.8 million, or $0.02 per common share, of net realized gains on investments.
Subsequent Events: After June 30, 2020, the following significant events occurred:

Non-GAAP Financial Measure — Adjusted Net Investment Income: On a supplemental basis, the Company discloses Adjusted net investment income, including on a per share basis, which is a financial measure that is calculated and presented on a basis of methodology other than in accordance with U.S. GAAP (“non-GAAP”). Adjusted net investment income represents net investment income, excluding capital gains-based incentive fees. The Company uses this non-GAAP financial measure internally in analyzing financial results and believes that this non-GAAP financial measure is useful to investors as an additional tool to evaluate ongoing results and trends for the Company. The Company’s investment advisory agreement provides that a capital gains-based incentive fee is determined and paid annually with respect to realized capital gains (but not unrealized appreciation) to the extent such realized capital gains exceed realized capital losses and unrealized depreciation on investments for such year. However, under U.S. GAAP, a capital gains-based incentive fee is accrued if realized capital gains and unrealized appreciation of investments exceed realized capital losses and unrealized depreciation of investments. Refer to Note 4 – Related Party Transactions in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for further discussion. The Company believes that Adjusted net investment income is a useful indicator of operations exclusive of any capital gains-based incentive fees, as net investment income does not include realized or unrealized investment activity associated with the capital gains-based incentive fee.
The following table provides a reconciliation of net investment income (the most comparable U.S. GAAP measure) to Adjusted net investment income for the periods presented (dollars in thousands, except per share amounts; unaudited):
|For the quarter ended|
|June 30, 2020||March 31, 2020|
|Amount||Per Share |
|Net investment income||$||4,173||$||0.13||$||14,766||$||0.45|
|Capital gains-based incentive fee (reversal)||(754||)||(0.02||)||(8,422||)||(0.26||)|
|Adjusted net investment income||$||3,419||$||0.11||$||6,344||$||0.19|
Adjusted net investment income may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other companies, as it is a non-GAAP financial measure that is not based on a comprehensive set of accounting rules or principles and therefore may be defined differently by other companies. In addition, Adjusted net investment income should be considered in addition to, not as a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures determined in accordance with U.S. GAAP.
