Second Quarter 2011 Results
Total investment income during the second quarter of 2011 was $16.4 million, compared to total investment income of $8.3 million for the second quarter of 2010, representing an increase of 97.9%.

This increase also includes approximately $1.7 million, or approximately $0.09 on a per share basis, of additional fee revenue relating primarily to the sale of two portfolio companies during the second quarter of 2011.
Net investment income during the second quarter of 2011 was $10.2 million, compared to net investment income of $4.6 million for the second quarter of 2010, representing an increase of 124.3%. The Company's net investment income per share during the second quarter of 2011 was $0.55, based on a weighted average share count of 18,570,929, as compared to $0.38 during the second quarter of 2010, based on a weighted average share count of 12,003,068.
The Company's net increase in net assets resulting from operations was $14.5 million during the second quarter of 2011, as compared to a net increase in net assets resulting from operations of $6.9 million during the second quarter of 2010. The Company's net increase in net assets resulting from operations was $0.78 per share during the second quarter of 2011 based on a weighted average share count of 18,570,929, as compared to a net increase in net assets resulting from operations of $0.57 per share during the second quarter of 2010, based on a weighted average share count of 12,003,068.

Liquidity and Capital Resources
At June 30, 2011, the Company had cash and cash equivalents totaling $68.2 million.
During the second quarter of 2011, the Company closed a three-year senior secured credit facility (the "Credit Facility") with an initial commitment of $50.0 million.

Dividend and Distribution Information
On May 31, 2011, Triangle announced that its board of directors had declared a cash dividend of $0.44 per share, representing a $0.02 increase over the prior quarterly dividend. This was the Company's eighteenth consecutive quarterly dividend since its initial public offering in February, 2007. The dividend was payable as follows:
|Record Date:||June 15, 2011|
|Payment Date:||June 29, 2011|
Triangle has adopted a dividend reinvestment plan ("DRIP") that provides for reinvestment of dividends on behalf of its stockholders, unless a stockholder elects to receive cash. As a result, when the Company declares a cash dividend, stockholders who have not opted out of the DRIP will have their cash dividends automatically reinvested in additional shares of the Company's common stock, rather than receiving cash dividends.
When the Company declares and pays dividends, it determines the allocation of the distribution between current income, accumulated income and return of capital on the basis of accounting principles generally accepted in the United States ("GAAP"). At each year end, the Company is required for tax purposes to determine the dividend allocation based on tax accounting principles. Due to differences between GAAP and tax accounting principles, the portion of each dividend distribution that is ordinary income, capital gain or return of capital may differ for GAAP and tax purposes.
Recent Portfolio Activity
During the second quarter of 2011, Triangle made five new investments totaling approximately $35.2 million, three debt investments in existing portfolio companies totaling approximately $32.7 million, and one equity investment in an existing portfolio company of approximately $0.1 million. Also during the second quarter of 2011, five portfolio company loans repaid at par totaling approximately $28.3 million and the Company received normal principal repayments and partial loan prepayments totaling approximately $2.3 million.
As previously announced, on May 2, 2011, Triangle recognized a long term capital gain of approximately $12.2 million in connection with the sale of certain assets of Fischbein, LLC ("Fischbein"). Triangle's investment in Fischbein consisted of $8.4 million in subordinated debt and $4.8 million in equity. The total investment yielded an internal rate of return of 33.7%.
