The Company has a three-year senior secured credit facility (the "Credit Facility") with a commitment of $75.0 million, and an accordion feature which allows for an increase in the total loan size up to $90.0 million.

Dividend and Distribution Information
On May 30, 2012, Triangle announced that its board of directors had declared a cash dividend of $0.50 per share, representing a 13.6% year over year increase over the Company's second quarter 2011 dividend. This was the Company's twenty-second consecutive quarterly dividend since its initial public offering in February, 2007, and was the Company's twelfth dividend increase. The dividend was payable as follows:
|Record Date:||June 13, 2012|
|Payment Date:||June 27, 2012|
At the time of its IPO in February, 2007, Triangle 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 2012, Triangle made seven new investments totaling approximately $112.5 million, two debt investments in existing portfolio companies totaling approximately $1.8 million, and one equity investment in an existing portfolio company of approximately $0.3 million. During the second quarter of 2012, the Company received five loan repayments at par totaling approximately $52.1 million and received normal principal repayments and partial loan prepayments totaling approximately $4.9 million.
