“Our net asset value increased 2.2% from the end of 2021 and we increased our quarterly distribution for the seventh consecutive quarter,” said Bilal Rashid, OFS Capital's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “We believe that credit quality remains solid and that our portfolio is well positioned in this rising interest rate environment as 93% of our loan portfolio consists of floating rate loans and 67% of outstanding debt is fixed rate.”
(1) On a supplemental basis, we disclose Adjusted NII (including on a per share basis), which is a financial measure calculated and presented on basis other than in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles of the United States of America (“GAAP”). Adjusted NII represents net investment income, excluding the capital gains incentive fee, in periods in which such expense occurs. GAAP requires recognition of a capital gains incentive fee in our financial statements when aggregate net realized and unrealized capital gains, if any, on a cumulative basis from the date of the election to be a BDC through the reporting date is positive. Such fees are subject to further conditions specified in the investment advisory agreement with OFS Capital Management, LLC, principally related to the realization of such net gains, before OFS Capital Management, LLC is entitled to payment, and such recognized fees are subject to the risk of reversal should unrealized gains diminish to become losses. Management believes that Adjusted NII is a useful indicator of operations exclusive of any net capital gains incentive fee, as net investment income does not include the net gains, realized or unrealized, associated with the capital gains incentive fee.
Management believes Adjusted NII facilitates analysis of our results of operations and provides greater transparency into the determination of incentive fees. Adjusted NII is not meant as a substitute for net investment income determined in accordance with GAAP and should be considered in the context of the entirety of our reported results of operations, financial position and cash flows determined in accordance with GAAP. A reconciliation of net investment income determined in accordance with GAAP to Adjusted NII is set forth in Schedule I to this press release.
PORTFOLIO AND INVESTMENT ACTIVITIES
($ in millions, except for per share data)
|Portfolio Overview||As of and for the Three Months Ended March 31, 2022|
Investment portfolio, at fair value
Weighted-average performing income yield - interest-bearing investments (2)
Weighted-average realized yield - interest-bearing investments (3)
Weighted-average realized yield on total investments (4)
The weighted-average yields of our 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.
(2)Income yield is calculated as (a) the actual amount earned on performing investments, including interest and prepayment fees and amortization of net loan fees, divided by (b) the weighted-average of total performing investment amortized cost.
(3) Realized yield is computed as (a) the actual amount earned on interest-bearing investments, including interest, prepayment fees and net loan fees, divided by (b) the weighted-average of total interest-bearing investments amortized cost, in each case, including debt investments in non-accrual status and non-income producing Structured Finance Notes.
(4) Realized yield is computed as (a) the actual amount earned on all investments including interest, dividends and prepayment fees, amortization of net loan fees, and dividends received divided by (b) the weighted-average of total investments amortized cost or cost.
|Three Months Ended|
|Portfolio Activity||March 31, 2022||December 31, 2021|
|Investments in new portfolio companies||$||33.0 ||$||61.6 |
|Investments in existing portfolio companies||15.1 ||13.7 |
|Investments in structured finance notes||22.1 ||— |
As of March 31, 2022, based on fair value, our investment portfolio was comprised of the following:
•Total investments of $556.9 million, which was equal to approximately 111% of amortized cost;
•Debt investments of $370.7 million in 63 portfolio companies, of which 97% and 3% were senior secured loans and subordinated loans, respectively;
•Equity investments of $95.9 million;
•20 structured finance note investments totaling $90.4 million; and
•Unfunded commitments of $44.8 million to 16 portfolio companies.
RESULTS OF OPERATIONS
For the three months ended March 31, 2022, total investment income of $10.9 million decreased by $4.3 million compared to the three months ended December 31, 2021, primarily due to a decrease of $2.6 million in dividend and fee income. Also contributing to the decrease in investment income for the three months ended March 31, 2022 was a $0.7 million decrease in deferred fee amortization as a result of lower portfolio runoff and redeployment of payoffs into lower yielding senior secured loans.
For the three months ended March 31, 2022, total expenses of $7.9 million decreased by $2.9 million compared to the three months ended December 31, 2021, primarily due to a decrease in incentive fees and interest expense.
Net Gain (Loss) on Investments
For the three months ended March 31, 2022, our portfolio experienced net gains of $5.5 million principally due to a $10.0 million, or 3.1%, increase in the fair values of our directly originated debt and equity investments. The net gains in our directly originated investments were primarily attributable to a $9.6 million increase in the fair value of our equity position in Pfanstiehl Holdings, Inc. Partially offsetting our net gains in our directly originated investments for the three months ended March 31, 2022 were unrealized losses of $1.0 million and $3.4 million on our broadly syndicated loans and structured finance notes, respectively, primarily due to widening of liquid credit market spreads.
LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES
As of March 31, 2022, we had $10.5 million in cash, which includes $7.5 million held by our wholly owned small business investment company, OFS SBIC I, LP (“SBIC I LP”), and OFSCC-FS, LLC (“OFSCC-FS”), an indirect wholly owned subsidiary. Our use of cash held by SBIC I LP and OFSCC-FS is restricted by regulatory and contractual conditions, including limitations on the amount of cash SBIC I LP and OFSCC-FS can distribute to us.
As of March 31, 2022, we had an unused commitment of $21.8 million under our senior secured revolving credit facility with Pacific Western Bank (“PWB Credit Facility”), as well as an unused commitment of $38.6 million under our revolving credit facility with BNP Paribas, both subject to borrowing base requirements and other covenants. Based on fair values and equity capital at March 31, 2022, we could access all unused commitments under our credit facilities and remain in compliance with the 1940 Act asset coverage requirement.
On April 22, 2022, we amended the PWB Credit Facility to: (i) increase the maximum amount available under the PWB Credit Facility from $25.0 million to $35.0 million; and (ii) extend the maturity date of the PWB Credit Facility from February 28, 2023 to February 28, 2024.

Non-GAAP Financial Measure – Adjusted Net Investment Income
On a supplemental basis, we disclose Adjusted NII (including on a per share basis), which is a financial measure calculated and presented on basis other than in accordance with GAAP. Adjusted NII represents net investment income, excluding the capital gains incentive fee, in periods in which such expense occurs. GAAP requires recognition of a capital gains incentive fee in our financial statements when aggregate net realized and unrealized capital gains, if any, on a cumulative basis from the date of the election to be a BDC through the reporting date is positive. Such fees are subject to further conditions specified in the investment advisory agreement with OFS Capital Management, LLC, principally related to the realization of such net gains, before OFS Capital Management, LLC is entitled to payment, and such recognized fees are subject to the risk of reversal should unrealized gains diminish to become losses. Management believes that Adjusted NII is a useful indicator of operations exclusive of any net capital gains incentive fee, as net investment income does not include the net gains, realized or unrealized, associated with the capital gains incentive fee. Management believes Adjusted NII facilitates analysis of our results of operations and provides greater transparency into the determination of incentive fees. Adjusted NII is not meant as a substitute for net investment income determined in accordance with GAAP and should be considered in the context of the entirety of our reported results of operations, financial position and cash flows determined in accordance with GAAP.
The following table provides a reconciliation from net investment income (the most comparable GAAP measure) to Adjusted NII for the three months ended March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021 (dollar amounts in thousands, except per share data) (unaudited):
