OFS Capital Corporation Announces Second Quarter 2021 Financial Results & Increases Quarterly Cash Distribution

Quarterly Distribution Increased by 9% Compared to Prior Quarter

CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug. 6, 2021-- OFS Capital Corporation (NASDAQ: OFS) ("OFS Capital," the "Company," "we," "us," or "our") today announced its financial results for the quarter ended June 30, 2021.

FINANCIAL HIGHLIGHTS

  • Net investment income of $3.2 million, or $0.24 per share, an increase of approximately 26% compared to the net investment income of $2.5 million, or $0.19 per share, for the quarter ended March 31, 2021. We had approximately $564,000, or $0.04 per share, of duplicative interest costs in the first quarter of 2021 related to our bond refinancing.
  • Net asset value ("NAV") per share increased to $13.42 at June 30, 2021 from $11.96 at March 31, 2021. During the three months ended June 30, 2021, our portfolio recognized net gains of $19.2 million.
  • No new loans placed on non-accrual status in the quarter.
  • At June 30, 2021, 95% and 66% of our loan portfolio and total portfolio, respectively, consisted of senior secured loans, based on fair value.
  • As of June 30, 2021, 90% of our debt matures in 2024 and beyond and 63% of our outstanding debt is unsecured.
  • On August 3, 2021, OFS Capital's Board of Directors declared a distribution of $0.24 per share for the third quarter of 2021, payable on September 30, 2021, to stockholders of record as of September 23, 2021.

"We had a strong quarter highlighted by a 12% increase in our net asset value," said Bilal Rashid, OFS Capital's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "Our net investment income also increased from the prior quarter and for the fourth consecutive quarter, we increased our quarterly distribution. We believe there is an opportunity for us to continue to increase net investment income over time as we increase the pace of our originations and continue to benefit from lower borrowing costs as a result of our refinancing activity earlier this year."

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 $484.0 million at June 30, 2021, which was equal to approximately 103% of amortized cost. As of June 30, 2021, the fair value of our debt investment portfolio totaled $334.9 million in 61 portfolio companies, of which 95% and 5% were senior secured loans and subordinated loans, respectively. As of June 30, 2021, we also held approximately $80.9 million in equity investments, at fair value, in 8 portfolio companies in which we also held debt investments, as well as fourteen portfolio companies in which we solely held an equity investment. As of June 30, 2021, our investment portfolio also included sixteen investments in structured finance notes with a fair value of $68.2 million. At June 30, 2021, we had unfunded commitments of $11.0 million to eight portfolio companies. As of June 30, 2021, floating rate loans as a percentage of fair value comprised 97% of our debt investment portfolio, with the remaining 3% in fixed rate loans.

RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

Income

Interest Income

During the three months ended June 30, 2021, recurring interest income and PIK interest income of $10.1 million increased $0.3 million compared to the three months ended March 31, 2021. Total interest income and PIK interest income of $10.6 million increased $0.5 million compared to the three months ended March 31, 2021.

Fee Income

Syndication fees and prepayment fees result from periodic transactions, rather than from holding portfolio investments, and are considered non-recurring. During the three months ended June 30, 2021, total fee income increased from $0.3 million to $0.6 million compared to March 31, 2021, primarily due to a $0.2 million increase in syndication fees.

Expenses

Interest expense

Interest expense for the three months ended June 30, 2021 decreased $0.3 million compared to the three months ended March 31, 2021, primarily due to the payment of interest during the three months ended March 31, 2021 on both the $125.0 million of unsecured notes in February and March 2021 and the $98.5 million of redeemed unsecured notes. After the 30-day notice period expired, we used a portion of the proceeds from the $125.0 million of unsecured notes to redeem $98.5 million of previously issued unsecured notes.

Management fee

Management fee expense for the three months ended June 30, 2021 remained stable compared to the prior quarter.

Incentive fee

Incentive fee expense for the three months ended June 30, 2021 increased $0.8 million compared to the prior quarter due to an increase in net interest margin.

Administration fee

Administration fee expense for the three months ended June 30, 2021 decreased $0.1 million compared to the prior quarter due to allocations related to year-end administrative services, including audit support during the first quarter of 2021.

Net Investment Income

Net investment income for the three months ended June 30, 2021 increased $0.7 million compared to the prior quarter primarily due to an increase in net interest margin.

Net Gain (Loss) on Investments

Our portfolio experienced net gains of $19.2 million in the second quarter of 2021 primarily as a result of performance improvements in our directly originated debt and equity investments. Net gains for the quarter include realized losses of $10.8 million primarily due to the sale of our subordinated debt investment in Community Intervention Services, LLC and the write-off of equity interests in My Alarm Center, LLC, which were substantially recognized as unrealized losses in prior fiscal years.

During the three months ended June 30, 2021 we recognized net gains of:

  • $0.9 million on our senior debt investments.
  • $3.5 million on our subordinated debt investments, primarily as a result of unrealized appreciation of $3.5 million on our investment in Eblens Holdings, Inc.
  • $14.4 million on our common equity, warrants and other investments, primarily as a result of unrealized appreciation of $12.1 million on our investment in Pfanstiehl Holdings, Inc.
  • $0.7 million on our Structured Finance Note investments.

LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES

At June 30, 2021, we had $35.2 million in cash, which includes $15.7 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, 2021, we had an unused commitment of $25.0 million under our senior secured revolving credit facility with Pacific Western Bank, as well as an unused commitment of $125.9 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, 2021, we could access available lines of credit for $129.0 million and remain in compliance with 1940 Act asset coverage requirement.

RECENT DEVELOPMENTS

We are continuing to closely monitor the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on all aspects of our business, including how it impacts our portfolio companies, employees, due diligence and underwriting processes, and financial markets. The U.S. capital markets experienced extreme volatility and disruption following the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, which appear to have subsided and returned to pre-COVID-19 levels. Nonetheless, certain economists and major investment banks have expressed concern that the continued spread of the virus globally could lead to a prolonged period of world-wide economic downturn.

On March 27, 2020, the U.S. government enacted the CARES Act, which contains provisions intended to mitigate the adverse economic effects of the coronavirus pandemic. On December 27, 2020, the U.S. government enacted the December 2020 COVID Relief Package. Additionally, on March 11, 2021, the U.S. government enacted the American Rescue Plan, which included additional funding to mitigate the adverse economic effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. It is uncertain whether, or to what extent, our portfolio companies will be able to benefit from the CARES Act, the December 2020 COVID Relief Package, the American Rescue Plan, or any other subsequent legislation intended to provide financial relief or assistance. As a result of this disruption and the pressures on their liquidity, certain of our portfolio companies have been, or may continue to be, incentivized to draw on most, if not all, of the unfunded portion of any revolving or delayed draw term loans made by us, subject to availability under the terms of such loans.

The extent of the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on our operational and financial performance, including our ability to execute our business strategies and initiatives in the expected time frame, will depend to a large extent on future developments regarding the duration and severity of the coronavirus, effectiveness of vaccination deployment and the actions taken by governments (including stimulus measures or the lack thereof) and their citizens to contain the coronavirus or treat its impact, all of which are beyond our control. An extended period of global supply chain and economic disruption could materially affect our business, results of operations, access to sources of liquidity and financial condition. Given the fluidity of the situation, we cannot estimate the long-term impact of COVID-19 on our business, future results of operations, financial position, or cash flows at this time.
