For the first nine months of the fiscal year, the company reported net investment income of $4.5 million.

GSC Investment Corp. said that most of the gain was due to unrealized appreciation in its net assets, which ended the quarter at $3.80 per share, down from $6.91 per share in the previous quarter. The large decline in net asset value was due to a stock dividend distribution paid out on December 31, 2009.

This portfolio was composed of investments in 29 portfolio companies and one collateralized loan fund.
