“We are pleased to announce a dividend increase for the fourth quarter. Our third quarter NII of $0.33 per share was solid due to strong growth in interest and fee related income,” said Bilal Rashid, OFS Capital’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “As interest rates continue to rise, we believe our balance sheet is well positioned as 94% of our loans are floating rate and 65% of our 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 is positive from the date of the election to be a BDC through the reporting date. 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 the 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)
|As of and for the Three Months Ended|
|Portfolio Overview||September 30, 2022||June 30, 2022|
Investment portfolio, at fair value
|$||516.6 ||$||547.7 |
Weighted-average performing income yield - interest-bearing investments (2)
|11.6 ||%||9.1 ||%|
Weighted-average realized yield - interest-bearing investments (3)
|10.8 ||%||8.6 ||%|
Weighted-average realized yield on total investments (4)
|10.3 ||%||8.2 ||%|
The increase in our weighted-average performing income yield was primarily due to rising interest rates and prepayment fees related to portfolio payoffs.
The weighted-average yield of our investments is not the same as a return on investment for our stockholders, but rather relates to 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 investments 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 on non-accrual status and non-income producing structured finance securities.
(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||September 30, 2022||June 30, 2022|
|Investments in new portfolio companies||$||7.6 ||$||26.9 |
|Investments in existing portfolio companies||14.7 ||4.4 |
|Investments in structured finance securities||— ||21.1 |
As of September 30, 2022, based on fair value, our investment portfolio was comprised of the following:
•Total investments of $516.6 million, which was equal to approximately 105% of amortized cost;
•Debt investments of $331.6 million in 57 portfolio companies, of which 99% and 1% were senior secured loans and subordinated loans, respectively;
•Equity investments of $95.2 million;
•23 structured finance securities totaling $89.9 million; and
•Unfunded commitments of $38.3 million to 15 portfolio companies.
During the quarter ended September 30, 2022, no new loans were placed on non-accrual status.
RESULTS OF OPERATIONS
For the quarter ended September 30, 2022, total investment income increased by $2.9 million compared to the quarter ended June 30, 2022 to $13.4 million, primarily due to increases in interest and fee income of $2.2 million and $0.5 million, respectively. Interest income increased $2.2 million compared to the prior quarter, primarily due to rising floating base rates including LIBOR and SOFR. Our portfolio’s weighted-average performing income yield was 11.6% for the quarter ending September 30, 2022, up from 9.1% for the quarter ending June 30, 2022.
For the quarter ended September 30, 2022, total expenses increased by $4.8 million compared to the quarter ended June 30, 2022 to $9.0 million, primarily due to a reversal of a previously accrued capital gains fee of $3.0 million in the prior quarter. Interest expense for the quarter ended September 30, 2022 increased $0.7 million compared to the prior quarter, primarily due to the increase in the effective interest rate from 3.2% to 5.2% on our BNP Facility resulting from SOFR rate increases.
Net Gain (Loss) on Investments
Our portfolio experienced net losses of $13.9 million in the third quarter of 2022, primarily as a result of unrealized depreciation of $13.5 million on our debt and equity investments and realized losses of $0.9 million on our loans. Unrealized depreciation for the quarter ended September 30, 2022 was primarily related to some company specific performance factors impacting three transactions, of which one was an equity appreciation right and the other two were existing non-accrual loans.
LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES
As of September 30, 2022, we had $13.1 million in cash, which includes $6.2 million held by our wholly owned small business investment company, OFS SBIC I, LP (“SBIC I LP”), and $3.7 million held by 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 September 30, 2022, we had an unused commitment of $33.5 million under our senior secured revolving credit facility with Pacific Western Bank, as well as an unused commitment of $28.6 million under our revolving credit facility with BNP Paribas, both of which are subject to borrowing base requirements and other covenants. Based on fair values and equity capital at September 30, 2022, we could access all unused commitments under our credit facilities and remain in compliance with the 1940 Act asset coverage requirement.

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 September 30, 2022 and June 30, 2022 and nine months ended September 30, 2022 and 2021, respectively (dollar amounts in thousands, except per share data) (unaudited):
