- Net asset value per share of $18.97 is off 2.9% from $19.54 on Sept. 30, and up 6% from a year ago. Stock closed at $15.94 today.
- 8.9M shares repurchased during Q at average price of $14.88 each, adding $0.13 to NAV per share. For full year, 40.4M shares repurchased for at average price of $13.90 each, adding $0.66 to NAV per share.
- Fall in NAV in Q4 largely the result of the struggles of American Capital Asset Management (AGNC and MTGE) - $185M charge for unrealized depreciation due to reduction in projected management fees. There's also a $152M depreciation charge in American Capital's private finance portfolio driven by declining specific company performance, offset by $115M in unrealized appreciation in European Capital investment.
