Paid $1.36 per common share in Regular Distributions in 2018
Paid $0.37 per common share in additional Special Distributions in 2018

CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Mar. 8, 2019-- OFS Capital Corporation (Nasdaq: OFS) (“OFS Capital,” “we,” “us,” or “our”) today announced its financial results for the fiscal quarter and the full year ended December 31, 2018.

FINANCIAL HIGHLIGHTS

  • Fourth quarter net investment income of $5.3 million, or $0.40 per common share - an increase of 38% year-over-year and above the $0.34 quarterly distribution.
  • Full year 2018 net investment income of $18.4 million, or $1.38 per common share - an increase of 8% year-over-year and above the $1.36 regular distribution.
  • Paid $1.73 per share in distributions in 2018, inclusive of a $0.37 special distribution.
  • Closed investments in the fourth quarter of approximately $79.6 million.
  • Net asset value ("NAV") per share decreased to $13.10 at December 31, 2018 from $13.75 at September 30, 2018 due to unrealized depreciation of the portfolio. No new non-accruals.
  • At December 31, 2018, 88% of our loan portfolio consisted of senior secured loans, based on fair value.
  • On March 5, 2019, OFS Capital's Board of Directors declared a distribution of $0.34 per share for the first quarter of 2019, payable on March 29, 2019 to stockholders of record as of March 22, 2019.

"Our net investment income again exceeded our distribution," said Bilal Rashid, OFS Capital's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "We have declared 25 consecutive quarterly distributions of $0.34 per common share since our IPO in late 2012, which we believe places us in a select group of BDCs that have been able to maintain their distribution over this time. In total, we have declared $8.70 per common share in regular and special distributions and our net investment income over the last four years exceeded our regular distributions."

“We believe that the breadth and expertise of our advisor puts us in a strong position to benefit from the increase in the leverage allowance for BDCs and enhance our net investment income. Our commitment to capital preservation, and strong long-term performance is enhanced by the alignment of interests of our stockholders and our advisor, which owns approximately 22% of the outstanding OFS Capital common stock."

Portfolio Overview At December 31, 2018
Total assets $ 441.4
Investment portfolio, at fair value $ 396.8
Net assets $ 175.0
Net asset value per share $ 13.10
Weighted average yield on performing debt investments (1) 11.50 %
Weighted average yield on total debt investments (2) 11.12 %
Weighted average yield on total investments (3) 10.49 %
 

(1) The weighted average yield on our performing debt investments is computed as (a) the annual stated accruing interest on our debt investments at the balance sheet date, plus the annualized accretion of loan origination fees, original issue discount, market discount or premium, and loan amendment fees divided by (b) amortized cost of our debt investments, excluding assets on non-accrual basis as of the balance sheet date.

(2) The weighted average yield on total debt investments is computed as (a) the annual stated accruing interest on our debt investments at the balance sheet date, plus the annualized accretion of loan origination fees, original issue discount, market discount or premium, and loan amendment fees divided by (b) amortized cost of our debt investments, including assets on non-accrual basis as of the balance sheet date.

(3) The weighted average yield on total investments is computed as (a) the annual stated accruing interest on our debt investments at the balance sheet date, plus the annualized accretion of loan origination fees, original issue discount, market discount or premium, and loan amendment fees, 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.

We had unfunded commitments of $8.2 million to four portfolio companies at December 31, 2018. As of December 31, 2018, floating rate loans comprised 87% of OFS Capital’s debt investment portfolio, with the remaining 13% in fixed rate loans, as a percentage of fair value.

RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

Income

Interest Income

Interest income increased approximately $10.2 million, due to a $8.9 million increase in recurring interest income caused by a $76.8 million increase in the average outstanding loan balance during 2018 along with an increase of $0.7 million in recurring interest income resulting from a 23 basis point increase in the weighted average yield in our portfolio during the year ended December 31, 2018. Acceleration of Net Loan Fees (defined as loan origination fees, original issue discount, market discount or premium and loan amendment fees) of $1.1 million and $0.6 million were included in interest income for the years ended December 31, 2018 and 2017, respectively, from the repayment of loans prior to their scheduled due dates.

Fee Income

We recorded prepayment fees of $0.9 million resulting from $50.0 million of unscheduled principal payments during the year ended December 31, 2018, compared to $1.0 million from $60.2 million of unscheduled principal payments during 2017. We recognized capital structuring fees of $0.0 million and $0.5 million for the years ended December 31, 2018 and 2017, respectively, upon the closing of $0 and $55.7 million of debt and equity investments, respectively. We ceased recognition of such fees with the adoption of ASC 606. We recognized syndication fees of $0.7 million and $0.2 million for the years ended December 31, 2018 and 2017, respectively, resulting from approximately $64 million and $21 million in loan originations during each period in which OFS Advisor sourced, structured, and arranged the lending group, and for which we were additionally compensated.

Expenses

Interest expense

Interest expense increased by $3.4 million primarily due to $3.1 million relating to the April 2018 and October 2018 unsecured note issuances of $98.5 million (the "Bond Issuances").

Management Fees

Management fee expense increased by $1.3 million due to an increase in our average total assets, primarily due to an increase in net investment activity, including the deployment of funds from the Bond Issuances.

Incentive Fees

Incentive fee expense increased by $1.4 million primarily due to a $2.5 million increase in net investment income relating to the deployment of the proceeds from the Bond Issuances.

Net Gain (Loss) on Investments

We recognized net losses of $9.0 million on senior secured debt during the year ended December 31, 2018, primarily as a result of a realized loss of $3.5 million on our senior secured debt investment in Jobson Healthcare recognized upon the sale in the second quarter of 2018, as well as by the negative net impact of mark-to-market adjustments in the fourth quarter relating to our broadly syndicated loan investments resulting in an unrealized loss of $5.5 million.

We recognized net losses of $3.3 million on subordinated debt during the year ended December 31, 2018, primarily as a result of a realized loss of $3.5 million on the restructuring of the Southern Technical Institute, LLC subordinated debt investment, of which $2.3 million was recognized as unrealized losses in prior years, and net unrealized depreciation of $2.1 from the negative impact of specific performance factors, of which $2.1 million related to Master Cutlery LLC.

We recognized net losses of $2.0 million on preferred equity investments for the year ended December 31, 2018, as a result of unrealized losses of $1.4 million relating to TRS Services, LLC, and other negative net impact of portfolio company-specific performance factors on other investments resulting in an additional unrealized loss of $0.6 million.

We recognized net gains of $5.5 million on common equity and warrant investments for the year ended December 31, 2018, as a result of net realized gains of $3.7 million, primarily driven by a $4.1 million realized gain on the sale of All Metals Holdings, LLC., and the positive impact of portfolio company-specific performance factors resulting in unrealized appreciation of $1.8 million for the year ended December 31, 2018.

LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES

At December 31, 2018, we had $38.2 million in cash and cash equivalents, which includes cash and cash equivalents of $36.0 million held by our wholly owned small business investment company. At December 31, 2018, we had $260.4 million in debt, which includes $149.9 million in outstanding SBA-guaranteed debentures, $98.5 million in unsecured notes and $12.0 million outstanding under our $50.0 million revolving credit facility with Pacific Western Bank.
