OFS Capital Corporation Announces First Quarter 2020 Financial Results

Net Investment Income of $0.30 per common share

Declares 30th Consecutive Quarterly Distribution on common shares

CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 8, 2020-- OFS Capital Corporation (NASDAQ:OFS) ("OFS Capital," the "Company," "we," "us," or "our") today announced its financial results for the quarter ended March 31, 2020.

FINANCIAL HIGHLIGHTS

  • Net investment income of $3.97 million, or $0.30 per share.
  • Net asset value ("NAV") per share decreased to $9.71 at March 31, 2020 from $12.46 at December 31, 2019. The fair value mark on our portfolio declined by approximately 7.2% and one loan was placed on non-accrual during the quarter.
  • At March 31, 2020, 91% and 79% of our loan portfolio and total portfolio, respectively, consisted of senior secured loans, based on fair value.
  • As of March 31, 2020, 93% of our debt matures in 2024 and beyond and 44% of our outstanding debt is unsecured.
  • On May 4, 2020, OFS Capital's Board of Directors declared a distribution of $0.17 per share for the second quarter of 2020, payable on June 30, 2020, to stockholders of record as of June 23, 2020. Given the unprecedented uncertainty related to the COVID-19 situation, we intend to take a cautious approach to our distributions. We believe that this rate will enhance our liquidity so that we can continue to support our borrowers, strengthen our balance sheet and put us in a position to capitalize on potential opportunities.

We are actively monitoring our portfolio companies throughout this period of economic uncertainty including assessing portfolio companies' operational and liquidity outlook. In March 2020, the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act ("CARES Act"), which, among other things, provides eligible companies with up to $10 million in 100% SBA-guaranteed forgivable Paycheck Protection Program ("PPP") loans, was signed into law. As of today, over 25 of our portfolio companies have secured approximately $78 million in PPP loans from the SBA.

With respect to our portfolio, at March 31, 2020 and May 8, 2020, we had unfunded commitments of $4.4 million and $-0-, respectively.

At March 31, 2020, our asset coverage ratio was 162% and we remained in compliance with all applicable financial covenant thresholds under our outstanding debt and our minimum asset coverage requirements under the 1940 Act.

We believe that we have diverse sources of funding. As of today, we have approximately $47.2 million of cash and additional capacity on our revolving corporate credit line with Pacific Western Bank and senior loan facility with BNP Paribas, which are both subject to a borrowing base and other covenants. Our senior loan facility has no LIBOR floor and matures in 2024. We have approximately $153 million in unsecured bonds that mature in 2025 and beyond. In addition, we have approximately $134 million of SBA debentures, which we anticipate paying down as the loans within OFS SBIC I, LP repay.

"We believe that we have in-house capabilities to invest across the loan and structured credit markets, with more than $2.1 billion in assets under management. We expect to continue to utilize our full platform to manage our portfolio and to find attractive investment opportunities. Our Advisor's long standing investment platform has been in existence since 1994, is part of an asset management platform with over $30 billion of assets under management and has strong relationships with our bank partners," said Bilal Rashid, OFS Capital's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "Our Advisor continues to own 22% of the Company, which we believe aligns its interests with the Company's stockholders."

The weighted average yield on our performing debt and structured finance note investments is computed as (a) the sum of (i) the annual stated accruing interest on debt investments plus the annualized accretion of loan origination fees, original issue discount, market discount or premium, and loan amendment fees at the balance sheet date, plus (ii) the annual effective yield on structured finance notes at the balance sheet date divided by (b) amortized cost of our debt and structured finance note investments, excluding debt investments in non-accrual status as of the balance sheet date.

(2)

The weighted average yield on our total debt and structured finance note investments is computed as (a) the sum of (i) the annual stated accruing interest on debt investments plus the annualized accretion of loan origination fees, original issue discount, market discount or premium, and loan amendment fees at the balance sheet date, plus (ii) the annual effective yield on structured finance notes at the balance sheet date divided by (b) amortized cost of our debt and structured finance note investments, including debt investments in non-accrual status as of the balance sheet date.

The weighted average yield on total investments is computed as (a) the annual stated accruing interest plus the annualized accretion of loan origination fees, original issue discount, market discount or premium, and loan amendment fees on our debt investments at the balance sheet date, plus the annual effective yield on our structured finance notes at the balance sheet date, plus the effective cash yield on our performing preferred equity investments divided by (b) amortized cost of our total investment portfolio, including assets on non-accrual basis as of the balance sheet date. The weighted average yield of investments is not the same as a return on investment for our stockholders but, rather, relates to a portion of our investment portfolio and is calculated before the payment of all of our fees and expenses.

PORTFOLIO AND INVESTMENT ACTIVITIES

The total fair value of our investment portfolio was $465.7 million at March 31, 2020, which was equal to approximately 90% of amortized cost. As of March 31, 2020, the fair value of our debt investment portfolio totaled $401.5 million in 63 portfolio companies, of which 91% and 9% were senior secured loans and subordinated loans, respectively. As of March 31, 2020, we also held approximately $38.8 million in equity investments, at fair value, in 14 portfolio companies in which we also held debt investments, as well as eight portfolio companies in which we solely held an equity investment. As of March 31, 2020, our investment portfolio also included six investments in structured finance notes with a fair value of $25.3 million. We had unfunded commitments of $4.4 million to four portfolio companies at March 31, 2020. As of March 31, 2020, floating rate loans as a percentage of fair value comprised 88% of our debt investment portfolio, with the remaining 12% in fixed rate loans.

RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

Income

Investment Income

Interest income increased by $0.6 million for the three months ended March 31, 2020, compared to the three months ended March 31, 2019, primarily due to a $2.0 million increase caused by an approximately $77 million increase in the average outstanding performing loan balance offset, in part, by a $1.4 million decrease resulting from a 136 basis point decrease in the recurring earned yield on our portfolio. We recognized fee income of $0.5 million for the three months ended March 31, 2020, primarily due to $0.1 million of prepayment fees and $0.4 million of syndication fees resulting from the $33.4 million in loan originations during the period in which OFS Capital Management, LLC sourced, structured, and arranged the lending group, and for which we were additionally compensated.

Expenses

Interest expense

Interest expense for the three months ended March 31, 2020 increased $1.5 million over the corresponding prior year period primarily due to the issuance of the $54.3 million of unsecured notes in October and November 2019 and borrowings under the BNP revolving credit facility.

Management fee

Management fee expense for the three months ended March 31, 2020 increased $0.2 million over the corresponding period due to an increase in our average total assets, resulting primarily from the deployment of the $54.3 million from the issuance of unsecured notes during October and November 2019 and the utilization of the BNP revolving credit facility.

Incentive fee

Incentive fee expense decreased $0.3 million, prior to the Part One incentive fees waiver of $0.4 million for the three months ended March 31, 2020 compared to the three months ended March 31, 2019, primarily due to a decrease in net investment income resulting from a decline in net interest margin, as well as one new investment on non-accrual status.

On May 4, 2020, our investment adviser agreed to irrevocably waive the receipt of Part One incentive fees (based on net investment income) of $0.4 million relating to net investment income, that it would otherwise be entitled to receive under the Investment Advisory Agreement for the three months ended March 31, 2020. As a result of the voluntary fee waiver, we incurred Part One incentive fee expense of $0.4 million for the three months ended March 31, 2020, which is equal to half the Part One incentive fees expense we would have incurred for the three months ended March 31, 2020.

Administration fee

Administration fee expense for the three months ended March 31, 2020 increased $0.1 million over the corresponding period primarily due to an increase in our allocable portion of OFS Services’s overhead.

Net Gain (Loss) on Investments

The fair value of the portfolio declined due to the net unrealized depreciation of $27.4 million in the first quarter primarily as a result of the adverse economic effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on market conditions and the overall economy as of March 31, 2020 and the related declines in quoted loan prices, increases in underlying market credit spreads and company-specific negative impacts on past and expected future operating performance. Additionally, we incurred realized losses of $9.1 million primarily due to the restructuring of our debt investment in Constellis Holdings, LLC, which was fully recognized as an unrealized loss as of December 31, 2019.

We recognized net losses of $18.7 million on senior secured debt during the three months ended March 31, 2020, primarily as a result of the net unrealized depreciation of $19.0 million on our senior secured debt. We also recognized a net realized loss of $9.1 million, primarily due to a $9.1 million realized loss from the restructuring of our debt investment in Constellis Holdings, LLC, which had unrealized depreciation of $9.3 million as of December 31, 2019, and therefore positively impacted the current quarter net loss by $0.2 million.

We recognized net losses of $7.5 million on subordinated debt during the three months ended March 31, 2020, primarily as a result of unrealized depreciation of $7.2 million on Online Tech Stores, LLC, which was the only loan placed on non-accrual during the quarter. We also recognized net unrealized depreciation of $0.3 million for the three months ended March 31, 2020, primarily due to net negative impact of portfolio company-specific performance factors.

We recognized net losses of $1.2 million on preferred equity investments for the three months ended March 31, 2020, primarily as a result of unrealized appreciation of $0.8 million on TTG Healthcare, LLC Class B preferred shares, offset by unrealized depreciation of $2.0 million on Contract Datascan Series A units.

We recognized net losses of $0.3 million on common equity and warrant investments for the three months ended March 31, 2020, primarily as a result of unrealized appreciation of $5.2 million on Pfanstiehl Holdings, Inc., offset by unrealized depreciation of $5.5 million our remaining common equity and warrant investments as a result of negative portfolio company-specific performance factors.

We recognized unrealized depreciation of $8.2 million on Structured Finance Notes for the three months ended March 31, 2020, primarily as a result of the negative impact of assumptions that reflect more stress on the underlying portfolios due to widening credit spreads since our investment purchases.

LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES

At March 31, 2020, we had $2.2 million in cash, which includes cash of $0.1 million held by our wholly owned small business investment company, OFS SBIC I, LP ("SBIC I LP"). Our use of cash held by SBIC I LP is restricted by SBA regulation, including limitations on the amount of cash SBIC I LP can distribute to OFS Capital as parent company. As of March 31, 2020, we had $59.8 million available for additional borrowings under our senior secured revolving credit facility with Pacific Western Bank, as well as an unused commitment of $102.1 million under our BNP revolving credit facility. Based on fair values and equity capital at March 31, 2020, we could access available lines of credit for $51.0 million and remain in compliance with 1940 Act asset coverage requirements. As of May 8, 2020, we had cash on hand of approximately $47.2 million. The cash build-up after quarter end was attributable to approximately $31.5 million in proceeds from the pay-off and sale of assets, which was greater than the aggregate fair value of these assets as of March 31, 2020 and approximated their cost. We also had additional net borrowings of approximately $15.0 million on our lines of credit subsequent to March 31, 2020.

RECENT DEVELOPMENTS

On March 11, 2020, the World Health Organization declared the novel coronavirus as a pandemic, and on March 13, 2020 the United States declared a national emergency with respect to the COVID-19 pandemic. The outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic has severely impacted global economic activity and caused significant volatility and negative pressure in financial markets. The global impact of the outbreak has been rapidly evolving and many countries, including the United States, have reacted by instituting quarantines, mandating business and school closures and restricting travel. Such actions are creating disruption in global supply chains and adversely impacting a number of industries. The outbreak could have a continued adverse impact on economic and market conditions and trigger a period of global economic slowdown which may be protracted. The rapid development and fluidity of this situation precludes any prediction as to the ultimate adverse impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. Nevertheless, the COVID-19 pandemic presents material uncertainty and risks with respect to the underlying value of the Company’s portfolio companies, the Company’s business, financial condition, results of operations and cash flows, such as the potential negative impact to financing arrangements, increased costs of operations, changes in law and/or regulation, and uncertainty regarding government and regulatory policy. Further, the operational and financial performance of the portfolio companies in which the Company makes investments have been, and may continue to be, significantly impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, which in turn has, and may continue to have, an impact the valuation of the Company’s investments.

Accordingly, the Company cannot predict the extent to which its business, financial condition, results of operations and cash flows will be affected at this time. The potential impact to the Company’s results will depend to a large extent on future developments and new information that may emerge regarding the duration and severity of the COVID-19 pandemic and the actions taken by authorities and other entities to contain the coronavirus or treat its impact, all of which are beyond the Company’s control.
