PORTFOLIO AND INVESTMENT ACTIVITIES

During the third quarter of 2016, OFS Capital closed new senior secured debt investments in two portfolio companies totaling $14.5 million. In addition, OFS Capital made $2.2 million of new senior secured debt investments in two existing portfolio companies, which included a delayed draw funding of $0.9 million.

The total fair value of OFS Capital's investment portfolio was approximately $259.2 million at September 30, 2016, which was equal to 100% of amortized cost. The portfolio consisted of outstanding loans to 37 portfolio companies, totaling approximately $230.9 million in aggregate principal amount (with an aggregate fair value of $226.5 million), of which 77% were senior secured loans and 23% were subordinated loans. At September 30, 2016, OFS Capital also held equity investments with an aggregate fair value of $32.7 million, of which $30.9 million was invested in 16 portfolio companies in which OFS Capital also held debt investments, and $1.8 million was invested in one portfolio company in which OFS Capital solely held an equity investment.

As of September 30, 2016, floating rate loans comprised 66% of OFS Capital's debt investment portfolio, with the remaining 34% in fixed rate loans, as a percentage of fair value. The weighted average yield on debt investments was 11.88% at September 30, 2016. OFS Capital had unfunded commitments of $2.6 million in three portfolio companies at quarter's end.

RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

Interest Income:
Interest income decreased by $0.1 million for the three months ended September 30, 2016 compared to the three months ended September 30, 2015. The decrease was primarily due to a $0.2 million decrease caused by a 3% decrease in the weighted average principal balance of investments outstanding, offset by a $0.1 million increase caused by a 1% increase in our average portfolio cash yield during the three months ended September 30, 2016. Acceleration of Net Loan Fees of $0.1 million and $0.2 million were included in interest income for the three months ended September 30, 2016 and 2015, respectively.

Dividend Income:
Dividend income decreased by $0.1 million for the three months ended September 30, 2016 compared to the three months ended September 30, 2015, due to a net decrease in recognized PIK dividends and timing of common stock dividends declared by our portfolio companies.

Fee Income:
Fee income decreased by $0.2 million for the three months ended September 30, 2016 compared to the three months ended September 30, 2015, primarily due to a decrease in prepayment fees. We recorded prepayment fees of $0.2 million resulting from $17.8 million of unscheduled principal payments during the three months ended September 30, 2015. There were no prepayment fees recorded during the three months ended September 30, 2016.

Expenses

Interest expense increased by $0.1 million for the three months ended September 30, 2016 compared to the three months ended September 30, 2015. The increase was primarily due to cash interest expense incurred on our SBA debentures primarily due to an increase in the weighted average interest rate when the remaining $22.6 million of our debentures pooled on September 23, 2015; our rate on that pool converted from the 1.03% short-term rate to 3.18%.

Net gain (loss) on investments

Net gain (loss) on investments consists of the aggregate: (a) realized gains and losses from the sale of debt or equity securities, or the redemption of equity securities; and (b) changes in net unrealized appreciation/depreciation on debt and equity investments. In the period in which a realized gain or loss is recognized, such gain or loss will generally be offset by the reversal of previously recognized unrealized appreciation or depreciation, and the net gain recognized in that period will generally be smaller. The unrealized appreciation or depreciation on debt securities is also reversed when those investments are redeemed or paid off prior to maturity. In such instances, the reversal on unrealized appreciation or depreciation will be reported as a net loss or gain, respectively, and may be partially offset by the acceleration of any premium or discount on the debt security in interest income and any prepayment fees on the debt security in fee income.

We recognized net losses of $0.4 million on senior secured debt during the three months ended September 30, 2016, primarily as a result of the net impact of company-specific performance factors, offset by the impact of changes to certain market loan indices, and the impact of certain investments moving closer to their expected exit events.

We recognized net losses of $0.2 million on subordinated debt during the three months ended September 30, 2016, principally as a result of the net impact of portfolio company-specific performance factors.

We recognized net losses of $0.3 million on equity investments for the three months ended September 30, 2016, primarily attributable to the net impact of portfolio company-specific performance factors, offset primarily by the impact of certain investments moving closer to their expected exit events.

LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES

At September 30, 2016, we had $28.0 million in cash and cash equivalents and $149.9 million in outstanding SBA-guaranteed debentures. As of September 30, 2016, we had $15.0 million available for additional borrowings on our senior secured revolving credit facility with Pacific Western Bank and had drawn all of our available SBA-guaranteed debentures.
