Apollo Investment Corporation (NASDAQ: AINV) or the "Company", "Apollo Investment", "we" or "our" today announces financial results for its fiscal quarter ended December 30, 2011. Our net investment income was $0.20 per share for the quarter ended December 31, 2011 and net asset value ("NAV") was $8.16 per share as of December 31, 2011.

The Board announced today that Mr. Edward Goldthorpe will be joining Apollo Investment Corporation as its President, succeeding Mr. Patrick Dalton, who formerly held positions as President and Chief Operating Officer. Mr. Edward Goldthorpe will also replace Mr. Dalton as Chief Investment Officer of our investment adviser. The Company announced that its Board of Directors has appointed Mr. James Zelter as the Company's interim President, effective immediately. He will also serve as interim CIO of Apollo Investment Management until Mr. Goldthorpe joins, which is expected to occur in the next 90 days. Mr. Zelter will retain his position as Chief Executive Officer of the Company. Apollo Investment also announced that its Board of Directors has appointed Mr. Gene Donnelly, Apollo Global Management, LLC's CFO, as interim CFO and Treasurer for the Company. Mr. Donnelly succeeds Mr. Richard Peteka who formerly served as the Company's CFO and Treasurer. Mr. Donnelly will serve as interim CFO and Treasurer until a permanent replacement has been appointed by the Board. The Board also named Ms. Eileen Patrick as the Executive Vice President of Corporate Strategy for the Company. In this newly created role, Ms. Patrick will assist in the execution of Apollo Investment Corporation's strategic expansion during this period of transition.

In order to capitalize on various proprietary market opportunities and to maintain an appropriate capital structure, the Board has authorized management to explore whether the Company should raise up to $200 million of additional equity capital, which may be conducted, among other means, through either a marketed deal or a rights offering. Apollo Global Management has informed the Company that it intends to support AINV's equity capital raise, which in the case of a rights offering could include the exercise of oversubscription rights as a backstop for up to $50 million. In further support of an equity offering, Apollo Investment Management has informed the Company that it intends to waive its management and incentive fees associated with any shares issued through this offering. Additionally, Apollo Global Management may also purchase shares of AINV in the open market.

The Company also announced that its Board of Directors has declared for the fourth fiscal quarter of 2012 a dividend of $0.20 per share, payable on April 3, 2012 to stockholders of record as of February 18, 2012. We believe having a dividend that is more closely aligned with net investment income per share is prudent and appropriate. The specific tax characteristics of this dividend will be reported to stockholders on Form 1099 after the end of the calendar year.

Mr. Zelter, Apollo Investment Corporation's Chief Executive Officer, said, "Since the onset of the global credit crisis, we believe the role of business development companies such as Apollo Investment Corporation has become increasingly important, filling the gap left by banks and traditional financial services companies. Prior to the credit crisis, AINV focused primarily on providing acquisition financing to middle market private equity sponsors. Today, we believe the growing void in the capital markets creates attractive opportunities for our business. Consequently, we intend to expand our footprint to provide a wider array of proprietary private financing solutions for companies across a broad spectrum of industries and situations. The changes we have announced today, including more closely aligning our dividend with our net investment income and our decision to explore the raising of additional equity capital, are designed to reposition us to grow our business in the current environment."

Mr. Zelter continued, "We are very pleased that industry veteran Edward Goldthorpe has agreed to join the senior management team at AINV, and we are confident he will play a major role in driving growth and value creation for the Company. Broadly speaking, we believe the changes we have made will enable us to capitalize on the meaningful opportunities we see in the current market and generate attractive risk-adjusted returns for our shareholders."

PORTFOLIO AND INVESTMENT ACTIVITY
During the three months ended December 31, 2011, we invested $95 million across 3 new and 6 existing portfolio companies, through a combination of primary and secondary market purchases. This compares to investing $382 million in 8 new and 3 existing portfolio companies for the three months ended December 31, 2010.

RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

Results comparisons below are for the three and nine months ended December 31, 2011 and December 31, 2010.

Investment Income

For the three and nine months ended December 31, 2011, gross investment income totaled $83.8 million and $272.4 million, respectively. For the three and nine months ended December 31, 2010, gross investment income totaled $94.3 million and $264.1 million, respectively. The decrease in gross investment income for the three months ended December 31, 2011 as compared to the three months ended December 31, 2010 was primarily due to a decrease in the receipt of prepayment premiums and other deal related income. The increase in gross investment income for the nine months ended December 31, 2011 as compared to the nine months ended December 31, 2010 was primarily due to an increase in the receipt of prepayment premiums and other deal related income.

Expenses

Expenses totaled $45.3 million and $140.7 million, respectively, for the three and nine months ended December 31, 2011, of which $24.3 million and $75.6 million, respectively, were base management fees and performance-based incentive fees and $16.9 million and $50.2 million, respectively, were interest and other debt expenses. Administrative services and other general and administrative expenses totaled $4.0 million and $14.9 million, respectively, for the three and nine months ended December 31, 2011. Expenses totaled $44.2 million and $122.9 million, respectively, for the three and nine months ended December 31, 2010, of which $27.7 million and $80.1 million, respectively, were base management fees and performance-based incentive fees and $13.4 million and $34.1 million, respectively, were interest and other debt expenses. Administrative services and other general and administrative expenses totaled $3.0 million and $8.8 million, respectively, for the three and nine months ended December 31, 2010. Expenses consist of base investment advisory and management fees, insurance expenses, administrative services fees, legal fees, directors' fees, audit and tax services expenses, and other general and administrative expenses. The increase in expenses from the December 2010 periods to the December 2011 periods was primarily due to an increase in interest expense as our average interest cost in the current periods is over 100 basis points higher than in the year ago periods and the average debt outstanding is roughly $150 million higher on a year over year basis. The increase in average interest cost resulted from the issuance of new tranches of long-term fixed rate debt in periods during and subsequent to the three and nine month periods ended December 31, 2010. In addition, in the nine month period ended December 31, 2011, the Company recognized approximately $4.0 million in net non-recurring expenses, including legal and other professional expenses of $4.7 million net of a non-recurring reduction of administrative expenses.

Net Investment Income

The Company's net investment income totaled $38.5 million and $131.7 million, or $0.20 and $0.67, per average basic share, respectively, for the three and nine months ended December 31, 2011. The Company's net investment income totaled $50.1 million and $141.1 million, or $0.26 and $0.73, per average basic share, respectively, for the three and nine months ended December 31, 2010.

Net Realized Losses

The Company had investment sales and prepayments totaling $175 million and $1.3 billion, respectively, for the three and nine months ended December 31, 2011. The Company had investment sales and prepayments totaling $481 million and $722 million, respectively, for the three and nine months ended December 31, 2010. Net realized losses for the three and nine months ended December 31, 2011 were $275.0 million and $341.1 million, respectively. For the three and nine months ended December 31, 2010, net realized losses totaled $64.9 million and $150.5 million, respectively. Net realized losses for the three and nine month periods ended December 31, 2011 were primarily derived from the exits of select investments, specifically Grand Prix Holdings, which accounted for $274 million of the realized loss totals, but also included Playpower Holdings, TL Acquisitions and FSC Holdings. The realized losses incurred upon the exit of these investments reversed out previously reported unrealized losses. Net realized losses for the three and nine months ended December 31, 2010 were primarily derived from selective exits and restructurings of underperforming investments.

Net Unrealized Appreciation (Depreciation) on Investments, Cash Equivalents and Foreign Currencies

For the three and nine months ended December 31, 2011, net change in unrealized appreciation on the Company's investments, cash equivalents, foreign currencies and other assets and liabilities totaled $300.2 million and $5.9 million, respectively. For the three and nine months ended December 31, 2010, net change in unrealized appreciation on the Company's investments, cash equivalents, foreign currencies and other assets and liabilities totaled $99.3 million and $77.7 million, respectively. For the three months ended December 31, 2011, the increase in unrealized appreciation was mainly derived from the reclassification of $274 million of previously recognized unrealized depreciation on our investment in Grand Prix Holdings to a realized loss. For the nine months ended December 31, 2011, the change in unrealized depreciation was comprised of the impact from Grand Prix Holdings together with the general decline in capital market conditions during the period. For the three and nine months ended December 31, 2010, net unrealized appreciation was impacted by net changes in specific portfolio company fundamentals and stronger capital market conditions.

Net Increase (Decrease) in Net Assets From Operations

For the three months ended December 31, 2011, the Company had a net increase in net assets resulting from operations of $63.7 million. For the nine months ended December 31, 2011, the Company had a net decrease in net assets resulting from operations of $203.5 million. For the three and nine months ended December 31, 2010, the Company had a net increase in net assets resulting from operations of $84.5 million and $68.4 million, respectively. For the three months ended December 31, 2011 basic and diluted earnings per average share were $0.32 and $0.31, respectively. For the nine months ended December 31, 2011, basic and diluted losses per average share were $1.04 and $1.04, respectively. The basic and diluted earnings per average share were $0.43 and $0.36 for the three and nine months ended December 31, 2010.

LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES

The Company's liquidity and capital resources are generated and generally available through periodic follow-on equity and debt offerings, our senior secured, multi-currency $1.254 billion revolving credit facility maturing on April 12, 2013 (see note 10 within the Notes to Financial Statements) (the "Facility"), our senior secured notes, investments in special purpose entities in which we hold and finance particular investments on a non-recourse basis, as well as from cash flows from operations, investment sales of liquid assets and prepayments of senior and subordinated loans and income earned from investments. The Company also has investments in its portfolio that contain PIK provisions. PIK investments offer issuers the option at each payment date of making payments in cash or in additional securities. When additional securities are received, they typically have the same terms, including maturity dates and interest rates as the original securities issued. On these payment dates, the Company capitalizes the accrued interest or dividends receivable (reflecting such amounts as the basis in the additional securities received). PIK generally becomes due at maturity of the investment or upon the investment being called by the issuer. In order to maintain the Company's status as a RIC, this non-cash source of income must be paid out to stockholders annually in the form of dividends, even though the Company has not yet collected the cash. For the nine months ended December 31, 2011, accrued PIK totaled $13.1 million, on total investment income of $272.4 million. On April 13, 2011, $380 million of commitments on the Facility matured. At December 31, 2011, the Company had $743 million in borrowings outstanding on its Facility and $511 million of unused capacity. As of December 31, 2011, aggregate lender commitments under the Facility total $1.254 billion.

On May 3, 2010, the Company closed on its most recent follow-on public equity offering of 17.25 million shares of common stock at $12.40 per share raising approximately $204 million in net proceeds. In the future, the Company may raise additional equity or debt capital, among other considerations. The primary use of funds will be investments in portfolio companies, reductions in debt outstanding and other general corporate purposes, including the payment of interest, fees or distributions to shareholders.

On September 30, 2010, the Company entered into a note purchase agreement, providing for a private placement issuance of $225 million in aggregate principal amount of five-year, senior secured notes with a fixed interest rate of 6.25% and a maturity date of October 4, 2015 (the "Senior Secured Notes"). On October 4, 2010, the Senior Secured Notes were sold to certain institutional accredited investors pursuant to an exemption from registration under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended. Interest on the Senior Secured Notes will be due semi-annually on April 4 and October 4, commencing on April 4, 2011. The proceeds from the issuance of the Senior Secured Notes were primarily used to reduce other outstanding borrowings and/or commitments on the Company's Facility.

On January 25, 2011, the Company closed a private offering of $200 million aggregate principal amount of senior unsecured convertible notes (the "Convertible Notes"). The Convertible Notes were issued in a private placement only to qualified institutional buyers pursuant to Rule 144A under the Securities Act of 1933. The Convertible Notes bear interest at an annual rate of 5.75%, payable semi-annually in arrears on January 15 and July 15 of each year, commencing on July 15, 2011. The Convertible Notes will mature on January 15, 2016 unless earlier converted or repurchased at the holder's option. Prior to December 15, 2015, the Convertible Notes will be convertible only upon certain corporate reorganizations, dilutive recapitalizations or dividends, or if, during specified periods our shares trade at more than 130% of the then applicable conversion price or the Convertible Notes trade at less than 97% of their conversion value and, thereafter, at any time. The Convertible Notes will be convertible by the holders into shares of common stock, initially at a conversion rate of 72.7405 shares of the Company's common stock per $1,000 principal amount of Convertible Notes (14,548,100 common shares) corresponding to an initial conversion price per share of approximately $13.75, which represents a premium of 17.5% to the $11.70 per share closing price of the Company's common stock on The NASDAQ Global Select Market on January 19, 2011. The conversion rate will be subject to adjustment upon certain events, such as stock splits and combinations, mergers, spin-offs, increases in dividends in excess of $0.28 per share per quarter and certain changes in control. Certain of these adjustments, including adjustments for increases in dividends, are subject to a conversion price floor of $11.70 per share. The Convertible Notes are senior unsecured obligations and rank senior in right of payment to our existing and future indebtedness that is expressly subordinated in right of payment to the Convertible Notes; equal in right of payment to our existing and future unsecured indebtedness that is not so subordinated; effectively junior in right of payment to any of our secured indebtedness (including existing unsecured indebtedness that we later secure) to the extent of the value of the assets securing such indebtedness; and structurally junior to all existing and future indebtedness (including trade payables) incurred by our subsidiaries, financing vehicles or similar facilities.

On August 11, 2011, the Company adopted a plan for the purpose of repurchasing up to $200 million of its common stock in accordance with the guidelines specified in Rule 10b-18 and Rule 10b5-1 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. The Company's plan was designed to allow it to repurchase its shares both during its open window periods and at times when it otherwise might be prevented from doing so under insider trading laws or because of self-imposed trading blackout periods. A broker selected by the Company will have the authority under the terms and limitations specified in the plan to repurchase shares on the Company's behalf in accordance with the terms of the plan. Repurchases are subject to SEC regulations as well as certain price, market volume and timing constraints specified in the plan. While the portion of the plan reliant on Rule 10b-18 remains in effect, the portion reliant on Rule 10b5-1 is subject to periodic renewal and is not currently in effect. As of December 31, 2011, no shares have been repurchased.

On September 29, 2011, the Company closed a private offering of $45 million aggregate principal amount of senior secured notes (the "Notes") consisting of two series: (1) 5.875% Senior Secured Notes, Series A, of the Company due September 29, 2016 in the aggregate principal amount of $29 million; and (2) 6.250% Senior Secured Notes, Series B, of the Company due September 29, 2018, in the aggregate principal amount of $16 million. The Notes were issued in a private placement only to qualified institutional buyers pursuant to Rule 144A under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended. The net proceeds from the offering of Notes are intended to be used to fund new portfolio investments, reduce outstanding borrowings on the Company's Facility and for general corporate purposes, including the payment of interest, fees or distributions to shareholders.
