The weighted average yield of investments is not the same as a return on investment for our stockholders but, rather, relates to portion of our investment portfolio and is calculated before the payment of all of our fees and expenses.

(1)

  The weighted average yield on our performing debt and structured finance note investments is computed as (a) the sum of the annual stated accruing interest on our 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 the annual effective yield on our structured finance notes at the balance sheet date divided by (b) the sum of the amortized cost of our debt and structured finance note investments, in each case, excluding assets on non-accrual basis as of the balance sheet date.

(2)

  The weighted average yield on total debt and structured finance note investments is computed as (a) the sum of the annual stated accruing interest on our 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 the annual effective yield on our structured finance notes at the balance sheet date divided by (b) the sum of the amortized cost of our debt and structured finance note investments, in each base, including assets on non-accrual basis as of the balance sheet date.

PORTFOLIO AND INVESTMENT ACTIVITIES

During the fourth quarter of 2020, we closed a $5.2 million directly-originated senior secured debt investment in a new portfolio company. In addition, we made $23.5 million of additional senior secured debt investments in existing portfolio companies and $19.9 million in four new structured finance notes.

The total fair value of our investment portfolio was $442.3 million at December 31, 2020, which was equal to approximately 96% of amortized cost. As of December 31, 2020, the fair value of our debt investment portfolio totaled $321.4 million in 49 portfolio companies, of which 95% and 5% were senior secured loans and subordinated loans, respectively. As of December 31, 2020, we also held approximately $64.5 million in common and preferred equity investments, at fair value, in 10 portfolio companies in which we also held debt investments and 13 portfolio companies in which we solely held an equity investment. As of December 31, 2020, our investment portfolio also included twelve investments in structured finance notes with a fair value of $56.4 million. We had unfunded commitments of $5.8 million to four portfolio companies at December 31, 2020. As of December 31, 2020, floating rate loans comprised 96% of our debt investment portfolio, with the remaining 4% in fixed rate loans, as a percentage of fair value.

RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

Income

Interest Income

During the year ended December 31, 2020, interest income decreased approximately $6.8 million, due to a $1.8 million decrease in interest income caused by a $16 million decrease in the average outstanding loan balance and a decrease of $5.0 million in recurring interest income resulting from a 128 basis point decrease in the weighted average yield in our debt portfolio. For the year ended December 31, 2020, acceleration of Net Loan Fees (defined as loan origination fees, original issue discount, market discount or premium and loan amendment fees) of $0.2 million were included in interest income from the repayment of loans prior to their scheduled due dates.

Fee Income

During the year ended December 31, 2020, fee income consisted of prepayment fees of $0.6 million resulting from $38.4 million of unscheduled principal payments, compared to $0.4 million from $56.8 million of unscheduled principal payments during the year ended December 31, 2019. We recognized syndication fees of $0.7 million and $0.7 million for the years ended December 31, 2020 and 2019, respectively, resulting from approximately $46.8 million and $91.5 million in loan originations during that period in which OFS Capital Management, LLC sourced, structured, and arranged the lending group, and for which we were additionally compensated.

Expenses

Interest expense

During the year ended December 31, 2020, interest expense increased by $3.0 million primarily due to an increase of $39.4 million in the average amount of outstanding borrowings, which included a full year's interest on the $54.3 million of unsecured notes issued in October 2019 and the issuance of the $25.0 million of unsecured notes in September 2020.

Management Fees

During the year ended December 31, 2020, management fee expense decreased by $0.7 million due to a decrease in our average total assets, primarily due to the sale of debt investments in response to the uncertainty surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic.

Incentive Fees

During the year ended December 31, 2020, incentive fee expense decreased by $3.2 million, or $3.6 million prior to the Income Incentive Fee waiver of $0.4 million compared to the prior year due to a decrease in net investment income.

Net Gain (Loss) on Investments

During the year ended December 31, 2020, we recognized net losses of $15.9 million on senior secured debt, primarily as a result of unrealized losses of $9.2 million and $2.8 million on our senior secured debt investments in 3rd Rock Gaming Holding, LLC, and Envocore Holdings, LLC, respectively.

During the year ended December 31, 2020, we recognized net losses of $16.4 million on subordinated debt, primarily as a result of unrealized losses of $12.1 million and $4.7 million on our subordinated debt investments in Online Tech Stores, LLC and Eblens Holdings, Inc., respectively.

During the year ended December 31, 2020, we recognized net losses of $2.7 million on preferred equity investments, primarily as a result of unrealized losses of $3.2 million and $2.0 million in Contract Datascan Holdings, Inc. and My Alarm Center, LLC, respectively, offset by an unrealized gain of $1.7 million in TTG Healthcare, LLC.

During the year ended December 31, 2020, we recognized net gains of $26.2 million on common equity and warrant investments, primarily as a result of unrealized gains of $24.2 million and $4.3 million on our common equity investment in Pfanstiehl Holdings, Inc. and our equity appreciation rights in Southern Technical Institute, LLC, respectively, offset by net unrealized losses of $1.2 million in our investment in Professional Pipe Holdings, LLC.

During the year ended December 31, 2020, we recognized net gains of $2.1 million on structured finance notes, primarily as a result of the positive impact of mark-to-market adjustments.

LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES

At December 31, 2020, we had $37.7 million of cash, which includes cash and cash equivalents of $32.2 million held by OFS SBIC I, LP ("SBIC I LP"), our wholly owned SBIC. 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 Corporation as parent company (the "Parent"). Any such distributions to the Parent from SBIC I LP are generally restricted under SBA regulations to a statutory measure of undistributed accumulated earnings or regulatory capital of SBIC I LP and require the prior approval from the SBA. At December 31, 2020, the Parent had $21.2 million of cash and cash equivalents available for general corporate activities, including approximately $18.3 million held by SBIC I LP that was available for distribution to the Parent.

Additionally, at December 31, 2020, we had an unused commitment of $19.4 million under our senior secured revolving credit facility with Pacific Western Bank, as well as an unused commitment of $118.6 million under the revolving credit facility with BNP Paribas, both subject to borrowing base requirements and other covenants. Based on fair values and equity capital at December 31, 2020, we could access $111 million under our credit facilities and remain in compliance with 1940 Act asset coverage requirement.

RECENT DEVELOPMENTS

On February 10, 2021, we issued $100.0 million aggregate principal amount of 4.75% notes due 2026 (the “Unsecured Notes Due February 2026”). The Unsecured Notes Due February 2026 will mature on February 10, 2026 and bear interest at a rate of 4.75% per year payable on February 10 and August 10 of each year, commencing on August 10, 2021.

The net proceeds we received from the sale of the Unsecured Notes Due February 2026 was approximately $96.6 million based on a public offering price of 98.906% of the aggregate principal amount of the Unsecured Notes Due February 2026, after deducting the underwriting discount and commissions payable by us and estimated offering expenses payable by us.

In connection with, and using the proceeds from, the issuance of the Unsecured Notes Due February 2026, on February 10, 2021, we caused notices to be issued to the holders of the $50.0 million aggregate principal unsecured notes due April 2025 (the "Unsecured Notes Due April 2025") and $48.5 million aggregate principal unsecured notes due October 2025 (the "Unsecured Note Due October 2025") regarding our exercise of our option to redeem all of the issued and outstanding Unsecured Notes Due April 2025 and Unsecured Notes Due October 2025. We will redeem the Unsecured Notes Due April 2025 and the Unsecured Notes Due October 2025 on March 12, 2021. The Unsecured Notes Due April 2025 and the Unsecured Notes Due October 2025 will be redeemed at 100% of their principal amount ($25 per Note), plus the accrued and unpaid interest thereon from January 31, 2021, through, but excluding, March 12, 2021.
