“We are pleased to announce our fourth consecutive increase in our quarterly net investment income”, said Bilal Rashid, OFS Capital’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “We believe our balance sheet is well positioned in the current interest rate environment with the vast majority of our loan portfolio being floating rate and the majority of our debt being fixed-rate. At the end of the third quarter, approximately 89% of our outstanding debt matures in 2026 or later, and more than half of our outstanding debt is unsecured.”
PORTFOLIO AND INVESTMENT ACTIVITIES
($ in millions)
|As of and for the Three Months Ended|
|Portfolio Overview||September 30, 2023||June 30, 2023|
Average performing interest-bearing investments, at cost
|$||388.5 ||$||406.5 |
Weighted-average performing income yield - interest-bearing investments(1)
|14.6 ||%||13.8 ||%|
Weighted-average realized yield - interest-bearing investments(2)
|13.3 ||%||12.5 ||%|
For the three months ended September 30, 2023, the weighted-average performing income yield on interest-bearing investments increased primarily due to non-recurring interest income recognized on our structured finance securities. 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.
(1) Performing income yield is calculated as (a) the actual amount earned on performing interest-bearing investments, including interest, prepayment fees and amortization of net loan fees, divided by (b) the weighted-average of total performing interest-bearing investments at amortized cost.
(2) Realized yield is calculated as (a) the actual amount earned on interest-bearing investments, including interest, prepayment fees and amortization of net loan fees, divided by (b) the weighted-average of total interest-bearing investments at amortized cost, in each case, including debt investments on non-accrual status and non-income producing structured finance securities.
|Three Months Ended|
|Portfolio Activity||September 30, 2023||June 30, 2023|
|Investments in debt and equity investments||$||0.7 ||$||16.4 |
|Investments in structured finance securities||7.6 ||— |
|Total investment purchases and originations||$||8.3 ||$||16.4 |
As of September 30, 2023, based on fair value, our investment portfolio was comprised of the following:
•Total investments of $457.2 million, which was equal to approximately 106% of amortized cost;
•Debt investments of $279.2 million in 43 portfolio companies;
•Equity investments of $94.7 million in 15 portfolio companies;
•Structured finance securities of $83.3 million in 23 investments; and
•Unfunded commitments of $14.1 million to 9 portfolio companies.
During the quarter ended September 30, 2023, loans with an aggregate amortized cost and fair value of $11.8 million and $6.4 million, respectively, were placed on non-accrual status.
RESULTS OF OPERATIONS
For the quarter ended September 30, 2023, total investment income increased to $14.7 million from $14.5 million in the prior quarter, primarily due to an increase in interest income of $0.2 million. Interest income increased due to non-recurring interest income recognized on the pay off of a loan accumulation facility, partially offset by a reduction in interest on our debt investments related to certain loans placed on non-accrual status during the current quarter.
For the quarter ended September 30, 2023, total expenses decreased by $0.1 million to $9.3 million compared to the prior quarter, primarily due to a decrease in interest expense stemming from a decrease in our average outstanding debt balance. During the quarter ended September 30, 2023, we redeemed $14.0 million of SBA debentures and reduced the total amount outstanding under our revolving credit facility with BNP Paribas.
Net Gain (Loss) on Investments
For the quarter ended September 30, 2023, we recognized a net loss on investments of $3.4 million, primarily due to net unrealized depreciation of $6.8 million on our debt and equity investments, partially offset by net unrealized appreciation of $3.3 million on our structured finance securities.
LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES
As of September 30, 2023, we had $15.9 million in cash, which includes $8.4 million held by our wholly owned small business investment company, OFS SBIC I, LP (“SBIC I LP”), and $4.0 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/or contractual conditions, including limitations on the amount of cash SBIC I LP and OFSCC-FS can distribute to us.
As of September 30, 2023, we had no outstanding balance and 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 $58.9 million under our revolving credit facility with BNP Paribas, both of which are subject to borrowing base requirements and other covenants. As of September 30, 2023, we had outstanding commitments to fund portfolio company investments totaling $14.1 million under various undrawn revolvers and other credit facilities.
