OFS Capital Corporation Announces Third Quarter 2018 Financial Results

Declares 24th Consecutive $0.34 Per Share Distribution

Net Investment Income Exceeds Distribution

CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov. 2, 2018-- OFS Capital Corporation (NASDAQ:OFS) ("OFS Capital," the "Company," "we," "us," or "our") today announced its financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2018.

FINANCIAL HIGHLIGHTS

  • Net investment income of $4.69 million, or $0.35 per share exceeds quarterly distribution.
  • Net asset value ("NAV") per share increased to $13.75 at September 30, 2018 from $13.70 per share at June 30, 2018.
  • At September 30, 2018, 82% of our loan portfolio consisted of senior secured loans, based on fair value, and 79% were floating rate.
  • In October 2018 and November 2018, we issued $48.5 million of seven year, fixed-rate bonds including $5.0 million of additional notes issued pursuant to the partial exercise of the underwriters overallotment option; as of today, our long-term debt was 100% fixed rate and 92% of our debt matures in 2024 and beyond.
  • Closed investments in the third quarter of 2018 totaled approximately $47.5 million. As of November 2, 2018, we closed approximately $29.0 million of additional new investments during the fourth quarter of 2018.
  • On October 30, 2018, OFS Capital's Board of Directors declared a distribution of $0.34 per share for the fourth quarter of 2018, payable on December 31, 2018 to stockholders of record as of December 17, 2018.

"Our net investment income again exceeded our distribution," said Bilal Rashid, OFS Capital's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. " We have declared 24 consecutive $0.34 per share quarterly distributions since our 2012 IPO-we believe that we are part of a select group of BDCs that has been able to maintain its distribution over this time. In total, we have declared $8.36 per share in regular and special distributions. Given the recent decline in the broader market, we believe that our shares are now generating an attractive yield approximating 12.5%.

We have a senior secured focused loan portfolio and our NAV increased this quarter. We think our portfolio is well positioned for rising interest rates, as a vast majority of our loans are floating rate while our liabilities are fixed rate."

Portfolio Overview  

At September 30, 2018

Total assets $ 408.5
Investment portfolio, at fair value $ 396.0
Net assets $ 183.6
Net asset value per share $ 13.75
Weighted average yield on performing debt investments (1) 12.14%
Weighted average yield on total debt investments (2) 11.73%
Weighted average yield on total investments (3) 11.00%

(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 our 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.

The total fair value of OFS Capital’s investment portfolio was $396.0 million at September 30, 2018, which was equal to approximately 99% of amortized cost. As of September 30, 2018, the fair value of OFS Capital's debt investment portfolio totaled $357.7 million in 42 portfolio companies, of which 82% and 18% were senior secured loans and subordinated loans, respectively. As of September 30, 2018, we also held approximately $38.3 million in equity investments, at fair value, in 15 portfolio companies in which we also held debt investments and 5 portfolio companies in which we solely held an equity investment. We had unfunded commitments of $8.5 million to four portfolio companies at September 30, 2018. As of September 30, 2018, floating rate loans comprised 79% of OFS Capital’s debt investment portfolio, with the remaining 21% in fixed rate loans, as a percentage of fair value.

RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

Income

Interest Income

Interest income increased by $2.8 million for the three months ended September 30, 2018, compared to the three months ended September 30, 2017, due to a $2.3 million increase in recurring interest income caused by a $81.6 million increase in the average outstanding loan balance, and an increase of $0.5 million in recurring interest income resulting from a 60 basis point increase in the weighted average yield in our portfolio. Acceleration of loan origination fees, original issue discount, market discount or premium, and loan amendment fees of approximately $132,000 and $296,000 were included in interest income for the three months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively.

Expenses

Interest expense

Interest expense for the three months ended September 30, 2018 increased $0.9 million over the corresponding period in the prior year due to an increase in borrowings under our revolving line of credit with Pacific Western Bank (the "PWB Credit Facility") and the $50.0 million issuance of the unsecured notes due April 2025. The average dollar amount of borrowings outstanding under the PWB Credit Facility during the three months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017 was $9.7 million and $11.1 million, respectively.

Management fee

Management fee expense for the three months ended September 30, 2018 increased $0.4 million over the corresponding period in the prior year due to an increase in our average total assets, primarily due to the deployment of funds from the April 2017 equity offering.

Incentive fee

Incentive fee expense increased by $0.1 million for the three months ended September 30, 2018 compared to the three months ended September 30, 2017 primarily due to an increase in net investment income.

Administration fee

Administration fee expense for the three months ended September 30, 2018, remained stable over the corresponding period in the prior year primarily due to similar allocable portion of OFS Capital Services’s overhead expenses.

Net Gain (Loss) on Investments

We recognized net losses of $0.4 million on senior secured debt during the three months ended September 30, 2018, primarily as a result of the net negative impact of portfolio company-specific performance factors and the impact of changes to certain market loan indices.

We recognized net losses of $0.4 million on subordinated debt during the three months ended September 30, 2018, primarily as a result of the negative impact of portfolio company-specific performance factors.

We recognized net gains of $0.1 million on preferred equity investments for the three months ended September 30, 2018, primarily as a result of unrealized depreciation on certain portfolio investments due to the net negative impact of portfolio company-specific performance factors.

We recognized net gains of $1.2 million on common equity and warrant investments for the three months ended September 30, 2018, primarily as a result of unrealized appreciation stemming from the positive impact of portfolio company-specific performance factors.

LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES

At September 30, 2018, we had $6.0 million in cash and cash equivalents, which includes cash and cash equivalents of $5.0 million held by our wholly owned small business investment company, and $149.9 million in outstanding SBA-guaranteed debentures. 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 September 30, 2018, we had $33.0 million available for additional borrowings under our PWB Credit Facility and had drawn all of our available SBA-guaranteed debentures.

RECENT DEVELOPMENTS

Registered unsecured bond offering

In October 2018 and November 2018, the Company closed the public offering of $48,525 in aggregate principal amount of its 6.5% notes due 2025 (the "Unsecured Notes Due October 2025"), which included a partial exercise of the underwriters overallotment option. The total net proceeds to the Company from the Unsecured Notes Due October 2025, after deducting underwriting discounts of approximately $1,516 and estimated offering expenses of $350, were approximately $46,659. The Unsecured Notes Due October 2025 will mature on October 31, 2025. Because the Unsecured Notes Due October 2025 are not secured by any of the Company's assets, they are effectively subordinated to all existing and future secured unsubordinated indebtedness (or any indebtedness that is initially unsecured as to which the Company subsequently grant a security interest), to the extent of the value of the assets securing such indebtedness, including, without limitation, borrowings under the PWB Credit Facility. The Unsecured Notes Due October 2025 may be redeemed in whole or in part at any time or from time to time at the Company’s option on or after October 31, 2020 at the redemption price of 100% of the aggregate principal amount thereof plus accrued and unpaid interest.
