“Our net asset value increased 2.2% from the end of 2021 and we increased our quarterly distribution for the seventh consecutive quarter,” said Bilal Rashid, OFS Capital's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “We believe that credit quality remains solid and that our portfolio is well positioned in this rising interest rate environment as 93% of our loan portfolio consists of floating rate loans and 67% of outstanding debt is fixed rate.”

(1)

On a supplemental basis, we disclose Adjusted NII (including on a per share basis), which is a financial measure calculated and presented on basis other than in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles of the United States of America (“GAAP”). Adjusted NII represents net investment income, excluding the capital gains incentive fee, in periods in which such expense occurs. GAAP requires recognition of a capital gains incentive fee in our financial statements when aggregate net realized and unrealized capital gains, if any, on a cumulative basis from the date of the election to be a BDC through the reporting date is positive. Such fees are subject to further conditions specified in the investment advisory agreement with OFS Capital Management, LLC, principally related to the realization of such net gains, before OFS Capital Management, LLC is entitled to payment, and such recognized fees are subject to the risk of reversal should unrealized gains diminish to become losses. Management believes that Adjusted NII is a useful indicator of operations exclusive of any net capital gains incentive fee, as net investment income does not include the net gains, realized or unrealized, associated with the capital gains incentive fee.

 

 

Management believes Adjusted NII facilitates analysis of our results of operations and provides greater transparency into the determination of incentive fees. Adjusted NII is not meant as a substitute for net investment income determined in accordance with GAAP and should be considered in the context of the entirety of our reported results of operations, financial position and cash flows determined in accordance with GAAP. A reconciliation of net investment income determined in accordance with GAAP to Adjusted NII is set forth in Schedule I to this press release.

As of March 31, 2022, based on fair value, our investment portfolio was comprised of the following:

  • Total investments of $556.9 million, which was equal to approximately 111% of amortized cost;
  • Debt investments of $370.7 million in 63 portfolio companies, of which 97% and 3% were senior secured loans and subordinated loans, respectively;
  • Equity investments of $95.9 million;
  • 20 structured finance note investments totaling $90.4 million; and
  • Unfunded commitments of $44.8 million to 16 portfolio companies.

RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

Investment Income

For the three months ended March 31, 2022, total investment income of $10.9 million decreased by $4.3 million compared to the three months ended December 31, 2021, primarily due to a decrease of $2.6 million in dividend and fee income. Also contributing to the decrease in investment income for the three months ended March 31, 2022 was a $0.7 million decrease in deferred fee amortization as a result of lower portfolio runoff and redeployment of payoffs into lower yielding senior secured loans.

Expenses

For the three months ended March 31, 2022, total expenses of $7.9 million decreased by $2.9 million compared to the three months ended December 31, 2021, primarily due to a decrease in incentive fees and interest expense.

Net Gain (Loss) on Investments

For the three months ended March 31, 2022, our portfolio experienced net gains of $5.5 million principally due to a $10.0 million, or 3.1%, increase in the fair values of our directly originated debt and equity investments. The net gains in our directly originated investments were primarily attributable to a $9.6 million increase in the fair value of our equity position in Pfanstiehl Holdings, Inc. Partially offsetting our net gains in our directly originated investments for the three months ended March 31, 2022 were unrealized losses of $1.0 million and $3.4 million on our broadly syndicated loans and structured finance notes, respectively, primarily due to widening of liquid credit market spreads.

LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES

As of March 31, 2022, we had $10.5 million in cash, which includes $7.5 million held by our wholly owned small business investment company, OFS SBIC I, LP (“SBIC I LP”), and OFSCC-FS, LLC (“OFSCC-FS”), an indirect wholly owned subsidiary. Our use of cash held by SBIC I LP and OFSCC-FS is restricted by regulatory and contractual conditions, including limitations on the amount of cash SBIC I LP and OFSCC-FS can distribute to us.

As of March 31, 2022, we had an unused commitment of $21.8 million under our senior secured revolving credit facility with Pacific Western Bank (“PWB Credit Facility”), as well as an unused commitment of $38.6 million under our revolving credit facility with BNP Paribas, both subject to borrowing base requirements and other covenants. Based on fair values and equity capital at March 31, 2022, we could access all unused commitments under our credit facilities and remain in compliance with the 1940 Act asset coverage requirement.

RECENT DEVELOPMENTS

On April 22, 2022, we amended the PWB Credit Facility to: (i) increase the maximum amount available under the PWB Credit Facility from $25.0 million to $35.0 million; and (ii) extend the maturity date of the PWB Credit Facility from February 28, 2023 to February 28, 2024.

FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS

Statements in this press release regarding management's future expectations, beliefs, intentions, goals, strategies, plans or prospects, including statements relating to: OFS Capital’s results of operations, including net investment income, adjusted net investment income, net asset value and net investment gains and losses and the factors that may affect such results; management's belief that credit quality is solid and the Company’s portfolio is well positioned for the future in a rising interest rate environment due to a high percentage of floating rate loans in the portfolio, when there can be no assurance that such a composition will lead to future success; and other factors may constitute forward-looking statements for purposes of the safe harbor protection under applicable securities laws. Forward-looking statements can be identified by terminology such as “anticipate,” “believe,” “could,” “could increase the likelihood,” “estimate,” “expect,” “intend,” “is planned,” “may,” “should,” “will,” “will enable,” “would be expected,” “look forward,” “may provide,” “would” or similar terms, variations of such terms or the negative of those terms. Such forward-looking statements involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors including those risks, uncertainties and factors referred to in OFS Capital’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2021 filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission under the section “Risk Factors,” and in “Part II, Item 1A.

Schedule 1
Non-GAAP Financial Measure – Adjusted Net Investment Income

On a supplemental basis, we disclose Adjusted NII (including on a per share basis), which is a financial measure calculated and presented on basis other than in accordance with GAAP. Adjusted NII represents net investment income, excluding the capital gains incentive fee, in periods in which such expense occurs. GAAP requires recognition of a capital gains incentive fee in our financial statements when aggregate net realized and unrealized capital gains, if any, on a cumulative basis from the date of the election to be a BDC through the reporting date is positive. Such fees are subject to further conditions specified in the investment advisory agreement with OFS Capital Management, LLC, principally related to the realization of such net gains, before OFS Capital Management, LLC is entitled to payment, and such recognized fees are subject to the risk of reversal should unrealized gains diminish to become losses. Management believes that Adjusted NII is a useful indicator of operations exclusive of any net capital gains incentive fee, as net investment income does not include the net gains, realized or unrealized, associated with the capital gains incentive fee. Management believes Adjusted NII facilitates analysis of our results of operations and provides greater transparency into the determination of incentive fees. Adjusted NII is not meant as a substitute for net investment income determined in accordance with GAAP and should be considered in the context of the entirety of our reported results of operations, financial position and cash flows determined in accordance with GAAP.

The following table provides a reconciliation from net investment income (the most comparable GAAP measure) to Adjusted NII for the three months ended March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021 (dollar amounts in thousands, except per share data) (unaudited):
