Our Business

Apollo Investment Corporation (the "Company," "Apollo Investment," "AIC," "we," "us," or "our"), a Maryland corporation incorporated on February 2, 2004, is a closed-end, externally managed, non-diversified management investment company that has elected to be treated as a business development company ("BDC") under the Investment Company Act of 1940 (the "1940 Act"). In addition, for tax purposes we have elected to be treated as a regulated investment company ("RIC") under Subchapter M of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the "Code"). We commenced operations on April 8, 2004 receiving net proceeds of $870 million from our initial public offering by selling 62 million shares of common stock at a price of $15.00 per share.

Apollo Investment Management, L.P. (the "Investment Adviser" or "AIM") is our investment adviser and an affiliate of Apollo Global Management, LLC and its consolidated subsidiaries ("AGM"). The Investment Adviser, subject to the overall supervision of our Board of Directors, manages the day-to-day operations of and provides investment advisory services to the Company.

Apollo Investment Administration, LLC (the "Administrator" or "AIA"), an affiliate of AGM, provides, among other things, administrative services and facilities for the Company. Furthermore, AIA provides on our behalf managerial assistance to those portfolio companies to which we are required to provide such assistance.

Our investment objective is to generate current income and capital appreciation. We invest primarily in various forms of debt investments, including secured and unsecured debt, loan investments, and/or equity in private middle-market companies. We may also invest in the securities of public companies and in structured products and other investments such as collateralized loan obligations ("CLOs") and credit-linked notes ("CLNs"). Our portfolio is comprised primarily of investments in debt, including secured and unsecured debt of private middle-market companies that, in the case of senior secured loans, generally are not broadly syndicated and whose aggregate tranche size is typically less than $250 million. Our portfolio also includes equity interests such as common stock, preferred stock, warrants or options.
