SuRo Capital Corp. Reports Second Quarter 2022 Financial Results

·20-min read
SuRo Capital Corp.
SuRo Capital Corp.

Net Asset Value of $9.24 Per Share as of June 30, 2022

Modified Dutch Auction Tender Offer to Repurchase Up To 2 Million Shares to Commence on August 8

NEW YORK, Aug. 03, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --  SuRo Capital Corp. (“SuRo Capital”, the “Company”, “we”, “us”, and “our”) (Nasdaq: SSSS) today announced its financial results for the quarter ended June 30, 2022. Net assets totaled approximately $280.2 million, or $9.24 per share, at June 30, 2022 as compared to $12.22 per share at March 31, 2022 and $16.56 per share at June 30, 2021.

“As we previously mentioned, equity market performance in the first half of 2022 was the worst first half performance in over 50 years. Private markets were no exception as numerous late-stage unicorns experienced turbulent market conditions. This turbulence has forced new financing rounds at valuations below previous capital raises, secondary trades at significant discounts, and lower internal valuations. These new dynamics, while impactful on short-term valuations, have provided us with compelling long-term investment opportunities. With greater than 40% of our investable assets in cash, we are well-positioned to take advantage of these attractive opportunities,” said Mark Klein, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of SuRo Capital.

Klein continued, “To that end, during the second quarter, we added two new companies to our investment portfolio: Whoop, Inc. and EDGE Markets, Inc. (via SuRo Capital Sports, LLC). We also made a follow-on investment in Shogun Enterprises, Inc. (d/b/a Hearth). With over $150.0 million in cash at quarter-end, we remain confident and opportunistic in seeking out compelling, high-growth companies.   Given current conditions, we believe being judicious on price when assessing potential investment opportunities is paramount to creating shareholder value.”

“As we have consistently demonstrated, SuRo Capital is committed to initiatives that enhance shareholder value, and we believe the market is currently undervaluing our portfolio. Accordingly, on August 1, 2022, our Board of Directors authorized a modified Dutch Auction Tender Offer to purchase up to 2 million shares of our common stock at a price per share between $6.00 and $7.00. This modified Dutch Auction Tender Offer comes in addition to the $15.0 million expansion of our Share Repurchase Program to $55.0 million authorized by our Board of Directors in March. Assuming 2 million shares tender, SuRo Capital will have repurchased over 3 million shares, or approximately 10% of our outstanding shares, since the expansion of the Share Repurchase Program in mid-March. Given our stock is trading at a significant discount to net asset value, coupled with the extreme market volatility, we believe the modified Dutch Auction Tender offer to be an efficient and accretive deployment of capital,” Klein concluded.

Investment Portfolio as of June 30, 2022

At June 30, 2022, SuRo Capital held positions in 40 portfolio companies – 32 privately held and 8 publicly held, some of which may be subject to certain lock-up provisions – with an aggregate fair value of approximately $200.1 million.   The Company’s top five portfolio company investments accounted for approximately 58% of the total portfolio at fair value as of June 30, 2022.

(1)   Based on basic weighted-average number of shares outstanding for the relevant period.
(2)   Total may not sum due to rounding.
(3)   During the quarters ended June 30, 2022 and June 30, 2021, the Company repurchased 855,159 and 0 shares of SuRo Capital common stock, respectively, for approximately $6.9 million and $0, respectively, in cash under its Share Repurchase Program. The use of cash in connection with the repurchases decreased net asset value as of quarter-end; however, the reduction in shares outstanding as of quarter-end resulted in an increase in the net asset value per share.

Weighted-average common basic shares outstanding were approximately 30.6 million and 25.3 million for the quarters ended June 30, 2022, and 2021, respectively. As of June 30, 2022, there were 30,325,187 shares of the Company’s common stock outstanding.

SuRo Capital’s liquid assets were approximately $169.4 million as of June 30, 2022, consisting of cash and securities of publicly traded portfolio companies not subject to lock-up restrictions at quarter-end.

Share Repurchase Program

Since inception of the Share Repurchase Program in August 2017, SuRo Capital has repurchased over 5.8 million shares of its common stock for an aggregate purchase price of approximately $38.6 million.

On March 13, 2022, the Company’s Board of Directors authorized a $15.0 million expansion of the Share Repurchase Program to $55.0 million. During the three and six months ended June 30, 2022, under the Share Repurchase Program, the Company repurchased 855,159 and 1,008,676 shares, respectively, of its common stock for approximately $6.9 million and $8.3 million, respectively. The dollar value of shares that may yet be purchased by the Company under the Share Repurchase Program is approximately $16.4 million. The Share Repurchase Program is authorized through October 31, 2022.

Under the Share Repurchase Program, the Company may repurchase its outstanding common stock in the open market provided it complies with the prohibitions under its insider trading policies and procedures and the applicable provisions of the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended, and the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended.

Modified Dutch Auction Tender Offer

On August 1, 2022, the Company’s Board of Directors authorized a modified “Dutch Auction” tender offer (the “Tender Offer”) to purchase up to 2,000,000 shares of its common stock at a price per share not less than $6.00 and not greater than $7.00 in $0.10 increments, using available cash. The Tender Offer will commence on August 8, 2022 and will expire at 5:00 P.M., Eastern Time, on September 2, 2022, unless extended. If the Tender Offer is fully subscribed, the Company will purchase 2,000,000 shares, or approximately 6.60%, of the Company’s outstanding shares of its common stock. Any shares tendered may be withdrawn prior to expiration of the Tender Offer. Stockholders that do not wish to participate in the Tender Offer do not need to take any action.

Based on the number of shares tendered and the prices specified by the tendering stockholders, the Company will determine the lowest per-share price that will enable it to acquire up to 2,000,000 shares of its common stock. All shares accepted in the Tender Offer will be purchased at the same price even if tendered at a lower price.

The Tender Offer is not contingent upon any minimum number of shares being tendered. The Tender Offer is, however, subject to other conditions, which will be disclosed in the Tender Offer documents. In the future, the Board of Directors may consider additional tender offer(s) or other measures to enhance shareholder value based upon a variety of factors, including the market price of the Company’s common stock and its net asset value.

The Company’s Board of Directors is not making any recommendation to stockholders as to whether to tender or refrain from tendering their shares into the Tender Offer. Stockholders must decide how many shares they will tender, if any, and the price within the stated range at which they will offer their shares for purchase.

The information agent for the Tender Offer is D.F. King & Co. Inc., and the depositary is American Stock Transfer & Trust Company, LLC. The offer to purchase (the “Offer to Purchase”), a letter of transmittal and related documents will be mailed to registered holders and certain of our beneficial holders. Beneficial holders may alternatively receive the Offer to Purchase and a communication to consult with their bank, broker or custodian, if they wish to tender shares.

(1) Based on weighted-average number of shares outstanding for the relevant period.
(2) Total return based on market value is based upon the change in market price per share between the opening and ending market values per share in the period, adjusted for dividends and equity issuances. Total return based on net asset value is based upon the change in net asset value per share between the opening and ending net asset values per share in the period, adjusted for dividends and equity issuances.
(3) Because the ratios are calculated for the Company’s common stock taken as a whole, an individual investor’s ratios may vary from these ratios.
