OFS Capital Corporation Announces Second Quarter 2020 Financial Results

Net Investment Income of $0.19 per common share
Declares 31st Consecutive Quarterly Distribution on common shares

CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jul. 31, 2020-- OFS Capital Corporation (NASDAQ:OFS) ("OFS Capital," the "Company," "we," "us," or "our") today announced its financial results for the quarter ended June 30, 2020.

FINANCIAL HIGHLIGHTS

  • Net investment income of $2.61 million, or $0.19 per share.
  • Net asset value ("NAV") per share increased to $10.10 at June 30, 2020 from $9.71 at March 31, 2020. During the three months ended June 30, 2020, our portfolio recognized net gains of $5.1 million, or $0.38 per share.
  • At June 30, 2020, 90% and 75% of our loan portfolio and total portfolio, respectively, consisted of senior secured loans, based on fair value.
  • As of June 30, 2020, 90% of our debt matures in 2024 and beyond and 45% of our outstanding debt is unsecured.
  • On July 28, 2020, OFS Capital's Board of Directors declared a distribution of $0.17 per share for the third quarter of 2020, payable on September 30, 2020, to stockholders of record as of September 23, 2020.

We are actively monitoring our portfolio companies throughout this period of economic uncertainty including assessing portfolio companies' operational and liquidity outlook. In the second quarter, we had only one new loan placed on non-accrual status. With respect to our portfolio, at June 30, 2020, we had unfunded commitments of $4.3 million to two portfolio companies.

At June 30, 2020, our asset coverage ratio was 166% and we remained in compliance with all applicable financial covenant thresholds under our outstanding debt and our minimum asset coverage requirement under the 1940 Act.

We believe that we have diverse sources of funding. As of quarter end, we had approximately $31.8 million of cash. In addition, we had 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. At quarter end, we had approximately $153 million in unsecured bonds that mature in 2025 and beyond. In addition, we had approximately $134 million of SBA debentures.

"Given the challenging economic and public health impact of the on-going COVID-19 pandemic, we are pleased that during the quarter our portfolio companies performed above our expectations,” said Bilal Rashid, OFS Capital's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "We anticipate that, as we begin to deploy capital into add-on and new investments and optimize our portfolio, our investment income will grow.”

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.

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 $435.8 million at June 30, 2020, which was equal to approximately 91% of amortized cost. As of June 30, 2020, the fair value of our debt investment portfolio totaled $361.4 million in 57 portfolio companies, of which 90% and 10% were senior secured loans and subordinated loans, respectively. As of June 30, 2020, we also held approximately $44.3 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 June 30, 2020, our investment portfolio also included eight investments in structured finance notes with a fair value of $30.0 million. We had unfunded commitments of $4.3 million to two portfolio companies at June 30, 2020. As of June 30, 2020, floating rate loans as a percentage of fair value comprised 87% of our debt investment portfolio, with the remaining 13% in fixed rate loans.

RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

Income

Investment Income
Interest income decreased by $1.9 million for the three months ended June 30, 2020, compared to the three months ended June 30, 2019, primarily due to a $0.2 million decrease in the average outstanding performing loan balance, as well as by a $1.7 million decrease resulting from a 189 basis point decrease in the recurring earned yield on our portfolio.

During the three months ended June 30, 2020, we recognized fee income of $0.3 million primarily due to prepayment fees. Syndication fees which are recognized when OFS Advisor sources, structures, and arranges the lending group, and for which we were additional compensation declined to $-0- for the three months ended June 30, 2020, compared to $0.4 million in the first quarter of 2020.

Expenses

Interest expense
Interest expense for the three months ended June 30, 2020 increased $1.3 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 June 30, 2020 decreased $0.2 million over the corresponding prior year period due to a decrease in our average total assets, resulting primarily from an $82.2 million increase in principal payments and sales of portfolio investments during the six months ended June 30, 2020 compared to the corresponding prior year period.

Incentive fee
Incentive fee expense decreased $1.0 million for the three months ended June 30, 2020 compared to the three months ended June 30, 2019, primarily due to an approximately $0.24 per share decline in net interest margin—total interest income less interest expense.

Administration fee
Administration fee expense for the three months ended June 30, 2020 increased $0.1 million over the corresponding period primarily due to an increase in our allocable portion of the overhead of OFS Capital Services, LLC, our administrator.

Net Gain (Loss) on Investments

Our portfolio experienced net gains of $5.1 million in the second quarter primarily as a result of performance improvements and expansion of the companies' valuation multiples at Pfanstiehl Holdings, Inc. and Southern Technical Institute, LLC, which lifted the value of our equity investments in those companies a combined $7.9 million, as well the return of liquidity to the broadly syndicated loan market, which contributed to the improvement in the fair values of $9.0 million of our Structured Finance Note investments and our loan investments acquired in the broadly syndicated market. One measure of liquidity in the broadly syndicated loan market is the average bid-ask spread on the Refinitiv Market Overall (North America) Loan Index which narrowed to 1.98 points at June 30, 2020, from 3.41 points at March 31, 2020, but has not yet returned to its long-term historic average of 1.0. These net gains were partially offset by $7.5 million in net losses, principally on our debt and equity investments in Contract Datascan Holdings, Inc., TalentSmart Holdings, LLC and 3rd Rock Gaming Holding, LLC, as well as other portfolio companies as a result of the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Within our senior debt investments, we recognized net losses of $4.6 million during the three months ended June 30, 2020, primarily as a result of unrealized depreciation of $4.2 million and $0.9 million on our senior secured debt in 3rd Rock Gaming Holding, LLC and Talent Smart Holdings, LLC, respectively, offset by net unrealized appreciation of $1.5 million on the remaining senior secured debt investments. We also recognized net realized losses of $1.0 million due to the sale of approximately $25.2 million of loans at cost, for an average price of approximately 96% of par.

Within our subordinated debt investments, we recognized unrealized depreciation of $0.1 million during the three months ended June 30, 2020, primarily as a result of unrealized depreciation of $0.4 million on Contract Datascan Holdings, Inc., offset primarily by unrealized appreciation of $0.3 million on Southern Technical Institute, LLC.

Within our preferred equity investments, we recognized unrealized depreciation of $1.0 million for the three months ended June 30, 2020, primarily as a result of unrealized depreciation of $1.4 million on Contract Datascan Series A units, offset by net unrealized appreciation of $0.4 million on the remaining preferred equity investments.

Within our common equity, warrants and other investments, we recognized unrealized appreciation of $6.3 million for the three months ended June 30, 2020, primarily as a result of unrealized appreciation of $6.9 million on Pfanstiehl Holdings, Inc., offset by net unrealized depreciation of $0.6 million on our remaining common equity, warrant and other investments as a result of negative portfolio company-specific performance factors.

Within our Structured Finance Note investments, we recognized unrealized appreciation of $4.5 million for the three months ended June 30, 2020, primarily due to the return of liquidity to the broadly syndicated loan market, which underlie these investments.

LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES

At June 30, 2020, we had $31.8 million in cash, which includes cash of $22.7 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 June 30, 2020, we had an unused commitment of $78.9 million under our senior secured revolving credit facility with Pacific Western Bank, as well as an unused commitment of $119.4 million under our BNP revolving credit facility, both subject to a borrowing base and other covenants. Based on fair values and equity capital at June 30, 2020, we could access available lines of credit for $68 million and remain in compliance with 1940 Act asset coverage requirement.

At our request, on July 29, 2020, Pacific Western Bank executed an amendment to our business loan agreement in order to reduce the total commitment under the senior secured revolving credit facility from $100 million to $50 million. We expect to benefit from a reduction in the unused commitment fee of 0.50% on any unused portion of the total commitment over $15 million. As of July 29, 2020, we had cash on hand of approximately $23.3 million and, after giving effect to the reduction, an unused commitment of $36.2 million under our senior secured revolving credit facility with Pacific Western Bank, subject to a borrowing base and other covenants.

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 have created, and may continue to create, disruption in global supply chains and adversely impact a number of industries. The outbreak could have a continued adverse impact on economic and market conditions on a global scale. The rapid development and fluidity of this situation precludes any prediction as to the ultimate adverse impact of the ongoing 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 on 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.
