Attendance at Board Meetings and the Annual Stockholder Meeting

 

The Board held five meetings during the fiscal year ended December 31, 2017. Each of our incumbent directors attended at least 75% of the aggregate total number of meetings of the Board held during the period for which he served as a director and of the aggregate total number of meetings held by all committees of the Board on which he served during the periods in which he served.

 

Director Independence

 

As required by our Charter, a majority of the members of the Board must qualify as “independent directors” as affirmatively determined by the Board. The Board consults with our legal counsel to ensure that the Board’s determinations are consistent with our Charter and applicable securities and other laws and regulations regarding who qualifies as an “independent director.” We do not consider a director independent unless the Board has determined that he or she has no material relationship with us in accordance with Section 2(a)(19) of the 1940 Act.

 

Consistent with these considerations, after review of all relevant transactions or relationships between each director, or any of his family members, and the Company, our senior management and our independent registered public accounting firm, the Board has determined that Messrs. Parico, Lanier and Beal, who comprise a majority of the Board, qualify as independent directors. Although our shares are not listed for trading on any national securities exchange, our independent directors also meet the current independence and qualifications requirements of the NASDAQ Global Market.

 

Committees of the Board

 

Audit Committee

 

The Board has established an audit committee (the “Audit Committee”), which consists of our three independent directors, Stephan Parico, Odysseus M. Lanier and Bert Beal. The Audit Committee, by approval of at least a majority of its members, selects the independent registered public accounting firm to audit our annual financial statements, reviews with the independent registered public accounting firm the plans and results of the audit engagement, discusses required communications with the independent registered public accounting firm, approves the audit and non-audit services provided by the independent registered public accounting firm, reviews the independence of the independent registered public accounting firm, considers the range of audit and non-audit fees and reviews the adequacy of our internal accounting controls. Mr. Parico serves as the chair of the Audit Committee, and the Board has determined that he qualifies as an “audit committee financial expert” as that term is defined under Item 407 of Regulation S-K. The Board has adopted a charter for the Audit Committee that sets forth its specific functions and responsibilities. The Audit Committee charter can be found on our website at www.parkviewcapitalcredit.com. The Audit Committee met eight times during 2017.

 

The Audit Committee reviewed and discussed the Company’s audited financial statements for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2017 with management and recommended to management that the audited financial statements be included in the Company’s annual report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2017.

 

Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee

 

The Board has established a nominating and corporate governance committee (the “Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee”), which consists of our three independent directors, Stephan Parico, Odysseus M. Lanier and Bert Beal. The Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee: (i) assists the Board in identifying individuals qualified to become directors of the Company; (ii) provides the Board with recommendations of director candidates to fill vacancies on the Board and to stand for election by the stockholders; (iii) recommends committee assignments for directors of the Company; (iv) periodically assesses the performance of the Board; and (v) reviews and recommends to the Board appropriate corporate governance policies and procedures for the Company, among other things. Mr. Lanier serves as the chair of the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee. The Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee charter can be found on our website at www.parkviewcapitalcredit.com. The Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee did not meet during 2017.

Communication with Directors

 

We have established procedures for stockholders or other interested parties to communicate directly with the Board. Such parties can contact the board by mail at: Chairman of Audit Committee of Parkview Capital Credit, Inc. Audit Committee, c/o Corporate Secretary, Two Post Oak Center, 1980 Post Oak Blvd, 15th Floor, Houston, Texas 77056.

 

The chairman of the Audit Committee will receive all communications made by these means, and will distribute such communications to such member or members of the Board as he deems appropriate, depending on the facts and circumstances outlined in the communication received. For example, if any questions regarding accounting, internal controls and auditing matters are received, they will be forwarded by the chairman of the Audit Committee to the members of the Audit Committee for review.

 

Board Leadership Structure; Independent Lead Director

 

Keith W. Smith serves as both our Chairman of the Board and President and Chief Executive Officer. The Board believes that while independent oversight of management is an important component of an effective board of directors, the most effective leadership structure for the Company at the present time is for Mr. Smith to serve as the principal executive officer of the Company and also serve as Chairman of the Board. The independent directors believe that because Mr. Smith is ultimately responsible for the day-to-day operation of the Company and for executing the Company’s strategy, and because the performance of the Company is an integral part of Board deliberations, Mr. Smith is the director best qualified to act as Chairman of the Board. The Board retains the authority to modify this structure to best address the Company’s unique circumstances, and to advance the best interests of all stockholders, as and when appropriate. In addition, although we do not have a lead independent director, the Board believes that the current structure is appropriate, as the Company has no employees and is externally managed by our Advisor, whereby all operations are conducted by our Advisor or its affiliates.

 

The Board also believes, for the reasons set forth below, that its existing corporate governance practices achieve independent oversight and management accountability, which is the goal that many companies seek to achieve. Our governance practices provide for strong independent leadership, independent discussion among directors and for independent evaluation of, and communication with, our executive officers and officers and key personnel of our Advisor. Some of the relevant processes and other corporate governance practices include:

 

A majority of our directors are independent directors. Each director is an equal participant in decisions made by the full Board. In addition, all matters that relate to our Advisor or any of their affiliates must be approved by a majority of the independent directors. The Audit Committee is comprised entirely of independent directors.

 

The investment advisory agreement by and among the Company and our Advisor (the “Advisory Agreement”) had an initial two-year term, with an annual review subsequent to the initial two-year term by, and renewal subject to, the approval of the Board, including a majority of the independent directors. The fees paid to our Advisor must be deemed reasonable, as determined by our independent directors, on an annual basis.

 

All meetings of the Board are held in person and materials are distributed to participants in advance of such meetings, which provides an opportunity for the Board to review materials and hold comprehensive and productive discussions.

The Board’s Role in Risk Oversight

 

The Board oversees our stockholders’ interest in the long-term health and the overall success of the Company and its financial strength.

 

The Board is actively involved in overseeing risk management for the Company. It does so, in part, through its oversight of our investments, as well as its oversight of the Company’s executive officers and our Advisor. In particular, the Board may determine at any time to terminate the Advisory Agreement, without the payment of any penalty, upon 60 days’ written notice, and must evaluate the performance of our Advisor, and re-authorize the Advisory Agreement on an annual basis.

 

In addition, the Audit Committee is responsible for assisting the Board in overseeing the Company’s management of risks related to financial reporting. The Audit Committee has general responsibility for overseeing the accounting and financial processes of the Company, including oversight of the integrity of the Company’s financial statements, the Company’s compliance with legal and regulatory requirements and the adequacy of the Company’s internal control over financial reporting. The Audit Committee reviews any potential material issues that are raised related to the Company’s financial statements or accounting policies. Additionally, in connection with the annual audit of the Company’s financial statements, the Audit Committee conducts a detailed review with the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm of the accounting policies used by the Company and its financial statement presentation.

 

Code of Conduct and Ethics

 

We have adopted a Code of Ethics that applies to our senior officers, including our Chief Executive Officer and our Chief Financial Officer, as well as every officer, director, employee and access person (as defined within the Company’s Code of Ethics) of the Company. We will report any material amendments to or waivers of a required provision of our Code of Ethics on our website and/or in a Current Report on Form 8-K. Our Code of Ethics can be found at our website: www.parkviewcapitalcredit.com.

 

Compensation of Our Executive Officers

 

We do not currently have any employees and do not expect to have any employees. Services necessary for our business are provided by individuals who are contractors of our Advisor or an affiliate, pursuant to the terms of the Advisory Agreement. Except for Mr. Jacobson, our Chief Financial Officer and Treasurer, and Ms. Hart, our Chief Compliance Officer, both of whom have been contracted by our Advisor to provide services on our behalf, only our executive officer is employed by our Advisor or its affiliates. Our day-to-day investment operations are managed by our Advisor. The services necessary for the origination and administration of our investment portfolio are provided by investment professionals employed by our Advisor or its affiliates.

 

None of our executive officers receive direct compensation from us. We reimburse our Advisor the allocable portion of the compensation paid to our Chief Compliance Officer and Chief Financial Officer (based on the percentage of time such individuals devote, on an estimated basis, to the business and affairs of the Company). Certain of our executive officers and other investment professionals of our Advisor, through their ownership interest in or management positions with our Advisor, may be entitled to a portion of any profits earned by our Advisor, which includes any fees payable to our Advisor under the terms of the Advisory Agreement, less expenses incurred by our Advisor in performing its services under the Advisory Agreement.

If a director is also one of our executive officers or an affiliate of our Advisor, we do not pay any compensation to that person for services rendered as a director. The amount and form of compensation payable to our independent directors for their service to us is determined by the Board, based upon recommendations from our Advisor. We are authorized to pay each of our independent directors the following amounts for serving as a director:

CERTAIN RELATIONSHIPS AND TRANSACTIONS WITH RELATED PERSONS

 

Advisory Agreement

 

We have entered into the Advisory Agreement with our Advisor under which our Advisor:

 

determines the composition of our portfolio, the nature and timing of the changes to our portfolio and the manner of implementing such changes;

 

identifies, evaluates and negotiates the structure of the investments we make (including performing due diligence on our prospective portfolio companies);

 

determines the assets we will originate, purchase, retain or sell;

 

closes, monitors and administers the investments we make, including the exercise of any rights in our capacity as a lender; and

 

provides us such other investment advice, research and related services as we may, from time to time, require.

 

Our Advisor’s services under the Advisory Agreement are not exclusive, and it is free to furnish similar or other services to others so long as its services to us are not impaired.

 

Under the terms of the Advisory Agreement, we will pay our Advisor a base management fee (the “Management Fee”) and may also pay to it incentive fees (each, an “Incentive Fee”).

 

The Management Fee is calculated at an annual rate of 2.00% of the end-of period gross assets if our end-of period gross assets are less than $250,000,000; 1.75% of the end-of period gross assets if our gross assets are equal to or greater than $250,000,000 but less than $750,000,000; and, 1.50% of the end-of period gross assets if our gross assets are equal to or greater than $750,000,000, payable monthly in arrears. For purposes of calculating the Management Fee, the term “gross assets” includes any assets acquired with the proceeds of leverage. As a result, our Advisor will benefit when we incur debt or use leverage. For each of the first two months of operations, the Management Fee was calculated based on the value of our gross assets at the end of such month, and appropriately adjusted for any share issuances during these months. Following our first two months of operations, the Advisory Agreement provides that the Management Fee is calculated based on the average value of gross assets at the end of the two most recently completed months. We have clarified our Management Fee calculation so that the Management Fee is calculated by averaging the value of our gross assets at the end of the two most recently completed quarters, and appropriately adjusting for any share issuances occurring during any month of the current quarter. Management Fees for any partial month are appropriately prorated.

 

The Incentive Fee is divided into two parts: (i) an incentive fee on income and (ii) an incentive fee on capital gains. Each part of the Incentive Fee is outlined below.

 

 10 

 

 

The first part, which we refer to as the incentive fee on income, is calculated and payable quarterly in arrears based upon our “pre-incentive fee net investment income” for the immediately preceding quarter. The incentive fee on income is subject to a hurdle rate, measured quarterly and expressed as a rate of return on adjusted capital at the beginning of the most recently completed calendar quarter, of 1.75% (7.0% annualized), subject to a “catch up” feature. For this purpose, “pre-incentive fee net investment income” means interest income, dividend income and any other income (including any other fees, other than fees for providing managerial assistance, such as commitment, origination, structuring, diligence and consulting fees or other fees that we receive from portfolio companies) accrued during the calendar quarter, minus our operating expenses for the quarter (including the Management Fee, expenses reimbursed to our Advisor under the Advisory Agreement and any interest expense and dividends paid on any issued and outstanding preferred stock, but excluding the Incentive Fee). Pre-incentive fee net investment income includes, in the case of investments with a deferred interest feature (such as original issue discount, debt instruments with payment-in-kind interest and zero coupon securities), accrued income that we have not yet received in cash. Pre-incentive fee net investment income does not include any realized capital gains, realized capital losses or unrealized capital appreciation or depreciation. For purposes of this fee, adjusted capital means cumulative gross proceeds generated from issuances of our common stock (including our distribution reinvestment plan, if established) reduced for distributions to investors that represent a return of capital. The calculation of the incentive fee on income for each quarter is as follows:

 

No incentive fee on income will be payable to our Advisor in any calendar quarter in which our pre-incentive fee net investment income does not exceed the hurdle rate of 1.75% (7.0% annualized) (the “hurdle rate”).

 

100% of our pre-incentive fee net investment income, if any, that exceeds the hurdle rate, but is less than or equal to 2.1875% in any calendar quarter (8.75% annualized) will be payable to our Advisor. We refer to this portion of our pre-incentive fee net investment income as the “catch-up.” The “catch-up” provision is intended to provide our Advisor with an incentive fee of 20.0% on all of our pre-incentive fee net investment income when our pre-incentive fee net investment income reaches 2.1875% in any calendar quarter.

 

20.0% of the amount of our pre-incentive fee net investment income, if any, that exceeds 2.1875% in any calendar quarter (8.75% annualized) will be payable to our Advisor once the hurdle rate is reached and the catch-up is achieved (20.0% of all pre-incentive fee net investment income thereafter is allocated to our Advisor).

 

The second part of the incentive fee, which we refer to as the incentive fee on capital gains, is an incentive fee on capital gains and is determined and payable in arrears as of the end of each calendar year (or upon termination of the Advisory Agreement). This fee will equal 20% of our realized capital gains on a cumulative basis from inception, calculated as of the end of the applicable period, computed net of all realized capital losses and unrealized capital depreciation on a cumulative basis, less the aggregate amount of any previously paid capital gain incentive fees.

 

Unless earlier terminated as described below, the Advisory Agreement will remain in effect from year to year if approved annually by (i) the vote of the Board, or by the vote of a majority of our outstanding voting securities, and (ii) the vote of a majority of our Independent Directors. The Advisory Agreement will automatically terminate in the event of assignment and may be terminated by either party without penalty upon 60 days’ written notice to the other.

 

Our Advisor will not assume any responsibility to us other than to render the services described in, and on the terms of, the Advisory Agreement, and will not be responsible for any action of the Board in declining to follow the advice or recommendations of our Advisor. Under the terms of the Advisory Agreement, and absent willful misfeasance, bad faith or gross negligence in the performance of its duties or by reason of the reckless disregard of its duties and obligations, our Advisor (and its officers, managers, partners, agents, employees, controlling persons and members, and any other person or entity affiliated with our Advisor) shall not be liable to us for any action taken or omitted to be taken by our Advisor in connection with the performance of any of its duties or obligations under the Advisory Agreement, or otherwise as an investment adviser of the Company (except to the extent specified in Section 36(b) of the 1940 Act concerning loss resulting from a breach of fiduciary duty (as the same is finally determined by judicial proceedings) with respect to the receipt of compensation for services). We shall, to the fullest extent permitted by law, provide indemnification and the right to the advancement of expenses, to each person who was or is made a party or is threatened to be made a party to or is involved (including, without limitation, as a witness) in any actual or threatened action, suit or proceeding, whether civil, criminal, administrative or investigative, by reason of the fact that he/she is or was a member, manager, officer, employee, agent, controlling person of our Advisor or any other person or entity affiliated with our Advisor, on the same general terms set forth in Article VII of our Charter.

 

License Agreement

 

On March 11, 2015, we entered into a license agreement (the “License Agreement”) with our Advisor, pursuant to which we have been granted a non-exclusive license to use the name “Parkview.” Under the License Agreement, we have a right to use the “Parkview” name and logo, for so long as our Advisor or one of its affiliates remains our investment adviser. Other than with respect to this limited license, we will have no legal right to the “Parkview” name or logo.

Item 3. Ratification of Independent Registered Public Accounting Firm

 

Independent Registered Public Accounting Firm

 

During the years ended December 31, 2016 and December 31, 2017, Mazars served as our independent registered public accounting firm. All services rendered by Mazars for the years ended December 31, 2016 and December 31, 2017 were pre-approved in accordance with the pre-approval policies and procedures described in the Audit Committee Report below.

 

Principal Independent Registered Public Accounting Firm Fees

 

The Audit Committee reviewed the audit and non-audit services performed by Mazars, as well as the fees charged by Mazars for such services for the years ended December 31, 2015, December 31, 2016 and December 31, 2017. The aggregate fees billed to us for professional accounting services, including the audit of our annual financial statements by Mazars for the years ended December 31, 2015, December 31, 2016 and December 31, 2017, are set forth in the table below.

 

   For the Year Ended December 31, 
   2017   2016 
Audit fees  $140,000   $120,000 
Audit-related fees        
Tax fees        
All other fees        
Total  $140,000   $120,000 

 

For purposes of the preceding table, Mazars’ professional fees are classified as follows:

 

Audit fees - These are fees for professional services performed for the audit of our annual financial statements and the required review of quarterly financial statements and other procedures performed by Mazars in order for them to be able to form an opinion on our financial statements. These fees also cover services that are normally provided by independent auditors in connection with statutory and regulatory filings or engagements.

 

Audit-related fees - These are fees for assurance and related services that traditionally are performed by independent auditors that are reasonably related to the performance of the audit or review of the financial statements, such as due diligence related to acquisitions and dispositions, attestation services that are not required by statute or regulation, internal control reviews and consultation concerning financial accounting and reporting standards.

 

Tax fees - These are fees for all professional services performed by professional staff in our independent auditor’s tax division, except those services related to the audit of our financial statements. These include fees for tax compliance, tax planning and tax advice, including federal, state and local issues. Services may also include assistance with tax audits and appeals before the Internal Revenue Service and similar state and local agencies, as well as federal, state and local tax issues related to due diligence.

 

All other fees - These are fees for any services not included in the above-described categories.

 

Audit Committee Report

 

The Audit Committee operates under a written charter adopted by the Board. The Audit Committee is currently composed of Messrs. Parico, Lanier and Beal. Management is responsible for the Company’s internal control over financial reporting and the financial reporting process. The Company’s independent registered public accounting firm is responsible for performing an independent audit of the Company’s financial statements in accordance with Standards of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States), and expressing an opinion on the conformity of the Company’s financial statements to U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”). The Audit Committee’s responsibility is to monitor and oversee these processes. The Audit Committee is also directly responsible for the appointment, compensation and oversight of the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm.

 

 13 

 

 

Pre-Approval Policy

  

The Audit Committee has established a pre-approval policy that describes the permitted audit, audit-related, tax and other services to be provided by Mazars, the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm. The policy requires that the Audit Committee pre-approve the audit and non-audit services performed by the independent registered public accounting firm in order to assure that the provision of such services does not impair the firm’s independence.

 

Any requests for audit, audit-related, tax and other services that have not received general pre-approval must be submitted to the Audit Committee for specific pre-approval, irrespective of the amount, and cannot commence until such approval has been granted. Normally, pre-approval is provided at regularly scheduled meetings of the Audit Committee. However, the Audit Committee may delegate pre-approval authority to one or more of its members. The member or members to whom such authority is delegated must report any pre-approval decisions to the Audit Committee at its next scheduled meeting. The Audit Committee does not delegate its responsibilities to pre-approve services performed by the independent registered public accounting firm to management.

 

Review with Management

 

The Audit Committee has reviewed, and discussed with management, the Company’s audited financial statements. Management has represented to the Audit Committee that the Company’s financial statements were prepared in accordance with GAAP.

 

Review and Discussion with Independent Registered Public Accounting Firm

 

The Audit Committee reviewed and discussed the Company’s audited financial statements with management and Mazars, the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm, with and without management present. The Audit Committee discussed the results of Mazars’ examinations, the Company’s internal controls, and the quality of the Company’s financial reporting. The Audit Committee also reviewed the Company’s procedures and internal control processes designed to ensure full, fair and adequate financial reporting and disclosures, including procedures for certifications by the Company’s Principal Executive Officer and Principal Financial Officer that are required in periodic reports filed by the Company with the SEC. The Audit Committee concluded that the Company employs appropriate accounting and auditing procedures.

 

The Audit Committee also discussed with Mazars matters relating to Mazars’ judgments about the quality, as well as the acceptability, of the Company’s accounting principles as applied in its financial reporting as required by the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board Accounting Standard 16 (Communication with Audit Committees). In addition, the Audit Committee has discussed with Mazars its independence from management and the Company, as well as the matters in the written disclosures received from Mazars and required by Public Company Accounting Oversight Board Rule 3526 (Auditor Independence). The Audit Committee received a letter from Mazars confirming its independence and discussed it with them. The Audit Committee discussed and reviewed with Mazars the Company’s critical accounting policies and practices, internal controls, other material written communications to management, and the scope of Mazars’ audits and all fees paid to Mazars during the fiscal year. The Audit Committee has adopted guidelines requiring review and pre-approval by the Audit Committee of audit and non-audit services performed by Mazars for the Company. The Audit Committee has reviewed and considered the compatibility of Mazars’ performance of non-audit services with the maintenance of Mazars’ independence as the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm.

Conclusion

 

Based on the Audit Committee’s review and discussions with management and the independent registered public accounting firm referred to above, the Audit Committee’s review of the Company’s audited financial statements, the representations of management and the report of Mazars to the Audit Committee, the Audit Committee recommended to the Board that the audited financial statements as of and for the year ended December 31, 2017 be included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2017, for filing with the SEC. The Audit Committee also recommended the selection of Mazars to serve as the independent registered public accounting firm of the Company for the year ending December 31, 2018.

SUBMISSION OF STOCKHOLDER PROPOSALS

 

The purpose of requiring stockholders to give us advance notice of nominations and other business is to afford the Board a meaningful opportunity to consider the qualifications of the proposed nominees and the advisability of any other proposed business and, to the extent deemed necessary or desirable by the Board, to inform stockholders and make recommendations about such qualifications or business, as well as to provide a more orderly procedure for conducting meetings of stockholders. Although our bylaws do not give the Board any power to disapprove stockholder nominations for the election of directors or proposals recommending certain action, they may have the effect of precluding a contest for the election of directors or the consideration of stockholder proposals if proper procedures are not followed and of discouraging or deterring a third party from conducting a solicitation of proxies to elect its own slate of directors or to approve its own proposal without regard to whether consideration of such nominees or proposals might be harmful or beneficial to us and our stockholders.

 

Our annual meeting of stockholders is generally held in May of each year. We will consider for inclusion in our proxy materials for the 2019 Annual Meeting of Stockholders, stockholder proposals that are received at our executive offices, in writing, in the period no earlier than on December 2, 2018 and no later than 5:00 p.m. (Eastern Time) January 1, 2019, and that comply with all applicable requirements of Rule 14a-8 promulgated under the Exchange Act.

 

Any stockholder who wishes to propose a nominee to the Board or propose any other business to be considered by the stockholders (other than a stockholder proposal to be included in our proxy materials pursuant to Rule 14a-8 of the Exchange Act) must comply with the advance notice provisions and other requirements of our bylaws. A stockholder who intends to present a proposal at the next annual meeting, including the nomination of a director, must submit the proposal in writing to Secretary, Parkview Capital Credit, Inc., Two Post Oak Center, 1980 Post Oak Blvd, 15th Floor, Houston, Texas 77056, and the proposal should be received by the Company no earlier than December 2, 2018 and no later than December 28, 2018. In the event that the date of the 2019 Annual Meeting of Stockholders is advanced or delayed by more than thirty (30) days from the first anniversary of the date that this information statement is first mailed to stockholders, a timely notice by the stockholder must be delivered no earlier than 120 days prior to the first anniversary of the notice of mailing of this information statement and not later than the close of business on the later of (i) the 90th day prior to the date of mailing of this information statement or (ii) the tenth day following the day on which public announcement of the date of mailing of the notice for the 2019 Annual Meeting of Stockholders is first made. The Company reserves the right to reject, rule out of order or take other appropriate action with respect to any proposal that does not comply with these and other applicable requirements.
