Quarterly Distribution Increased by 4% Compared to Prior Quarter

CHICAGO, November 05, 2021--(BUSINESS WIRE)--OFS Capital Corporation (NASDAQ: OFS) ("OFS Capital," the "Company," "we," "us," or "our") today announced its financial results for the quarter ended September 30, 2021.

FINANCIAL HIGHLIGHTS

  • Net investment income of $3.2 million, or $0.24 per common share.

  • Adjusted net investment income(1) of $3.3 million, or $0.25 per common share.

  • Net asset value ("NAV") per common share increased 5.5% to $14.16 at September 30, 2021 from $13.42 at June 30, 2021. During the three months ended September 30, 2021, our portfolio experienced realized and unrealized net gains of $10.2 million.

  • No new loans placed on non-accrual status in the quarter.

  • At September 30, 2021, 95% and 66% of our loan portfolio and total portfolio, respectively, consisted of senior secured loans, based on fair value.

  • As of September 30, 2021, 92% of our debt matures in 2024 and beyond and 64% of our outstanding debt is unsecured.

  • On November 2, 2021, OFS Capital's Board of Directors declared a distribution of $0.25 per share for the fourth quarter of 2021, payable on December 31, 2021, to stockholders of record as of December 24, 2021.

"Our net asset value increased 5.5% from the end of the second quarter of 2021, primarily driven by continued appreciation of our equity investments," said Bilal Rashid, OFS Capital's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "We are pleased that our net asset value per share now exceeds pre-pandemic levels and we believe our portfolio is well positioned for the future. We increased our quarterly distribution for the fifth consecutive quarter. In late October, we closed on a seven year unsecured bond and expect to redeem outstanding debt with a higher cost. The October offering extended our debt maturities and will help reduce our borrowing costs."

(1) Supplemental information regarding adjusted net investment income:

On a supplemental basis, management provides disclosure of adjusted net investment income ("Adjusted NII"), which is a financial measure calculated and presented on a basis of accounting other than in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles of the United States of America ("GAAP"). Adjusted NII excludes the expense related to capital gains incentives incurred under our investment advisory and management agreement with OFS Capital Management, LLC ("Advisory Agreement"). Our Advisory Agreement includes a two part incentive fee: part one that provides incentive fees based on our pre-incentive fee net investment income for the immediately preceding calendar quarter, and part two that provides incentive fees based on our cumulative net realized gains since inception of the Advisory Agreement (the "Capital Gains Incentive Fee"). GAAP requires recognition of this expense as incurred, necessitating an accrual for fees on unrealized gains. Thus, the Capital Gains Incentive Fee recognized in our September 30, 2021 financial statements is not currently payable under the terms of the Advisory Agreement. Moreover, since the Capital Gains Incentive Fee is determined, in part, on the basis of net unrealized gains as of September 30, 2021, such fees are subject to reversal should net unrealized gains diminish or revert to net unrealized losses. Additionally, GAAP requires such fees to be included as a component of net investment income. Management believes this measure 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

The total fair value of our investment portfolio was $526.3 million at September 30, 2021, which was equal to approximately 104% of amortized cost. As of September 30, 2021, the fair value of our debt investment portfolio totaled $365.5 million in 70 portfolio companies, of which 95% and 5% were senior secured loans and subordinated loans, respectively. As of September 30, 2021, we also held approximately $84.2 million in equity investments, at fair value, in eight portfolio companies in which we also held debt investments, as well as thirteen portfolio companies in which we solely held an equity investment. As of September 30, 2021, our investment portfolio also included seventeen investments in structured finance notes with a fair value of $76.6 million. At September 30, 2021, we had unfunded commitments of $13.6 million to twelve portfolio companies. As of September 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 September 30, 2021, recurring interest income of $10.0 million decreased $0.1 million compared to the three months ended June 30, 2021. Total interest income of $10.1 million decreased $0.5 million compared to the three months ended June 30, 2021, primarily due to the acceleration of fees from loan prepayments in the prior quarter.

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 September 30, 2021, total fee income decreased from $0.6 million to $0.4 million compared to June 30, 2021, primarily due to a $0.3 million decrease in syndication fees.

Expenses

Interest expense

Interest expense for the three months ended September 30, 2021 remained stable compared to the three months ended June 30, 2021.

Management fee

Management fee expense for the three months ended September 30, 2021 increased $0.1 million compared to the three months ended June 30, 2021 primarily due to the increase in total assets.

Incentive fee

Incentive fee expense for the three months ended September 30, 2021 decreased $0.7 million compared to the prior quarter due to pre-incentive fee net investment income not exceeding the performance hurdle for incentives in the three months ended September 30, 2021. The Company accrued a capital gains incentive fee of $0.1 million due to an increase in unrealized capital gains for the three months ended September 30, 2021.

Administration fee

Administration fee expense for the three months ended September 30, 2021 decreased $0.1 million compared to the prior quarter due to a reduction in allocation of administrative services and software.

Net Gain (Loss) on Investments

Our portfolio experienced net gains of $10.2 million in the third 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 gains of $3.3 primarily on the sale of our preferred equity in Neosystems Corp. and our common equity in Chemical Resources Holdings, Inc.

During the three months ended September 30, 2021, our net gains of $10.2 million were primarily comprised of:

  • net losses of $0.5 million on our senior debt primarily due to a decrease of $0.7 million in Envocore Holding, LLC;

  • net gains of $9.1 million on our common equity, warrants and other investments, primarily as a result of unrealized appreciation of $6.4 million on our investment in Pfanstiehl Holdings, Inc.; and

  • net gains of $1.0 million on our preferred equity investments was primarily attributable to the $0.6 million improvement in Stancor, L.P. and $0.5 million improvement in Contract Datascan Holdings, Inc.

LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES

At September 30, 2021, we had $7.0 million in cash, which includes $3.9 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 September 30, 2021, we had an unused commitment of $24.25 million under our senior secured revolving credit facility with Pacific Western Bank, as well as an unused commitment of $104.9 million under our BNP revolving credit facility, both subject to a borrowing base and other covenants. Based on fair values and equity capital at September 30, 2021, we could access available lines of credit for $133.0 million and remain in compliance with 1940 Act asset coverage requirement.

RECENT DEVELOPMENTS

On October 1, 2021, we caused notices to be issued to the holders of the 6.25% unsecured notes due September 2023 regarding the exercise of our option to redeem on November 1, 2021 all of the issued and outstanding 6.25% unsecured notes due September 2023. The 6.25% unsecured notes due September 2023 were redeemed at 100% of their principal amount ($25 per Note), plus the accrued and unpaid interest through October 31, 2021. We expect to recognize a loss on extinguishment of debt of $0.6 million related to the charge-off of deferred borrowing costs on the redemption of the notes.

On October 28, 2021 and November 1, 2021, we closed the public offering of $55.0 million in aggregate principal of 4.95% unsecured notes due October 31, 2028 (the "Unsecured Notes Due October 2028"), which included a full exercise of the underwriters overallotment option. The total net proceeds to us, after deducting underwriting discounts of $1.72 million and estimated offering expenses, plus reimbursements, was approximately $53.5 million. The Unsecured Notes Due October 2028 will mature on October 31, 2028 and bear an effective interest rate, including amortization of deferred debt issuance costs, of 5.34%. The Unsecured Notes Due October 2028 may be redeemed in whole or in part at any time or from time to time at our option on or after October 31, 2023 at the redemption price of 100% of the aggregate principal amount thereof plus accrued and unpaid interest.

On October 22, 2021, we caused notices to be issued to the holders of the 5.95% unsecured notes due October 2026 regarding the exercise of our option to redeem on November 22, 2021 all of the issued and outstanding 5.95% unsecured notes due October 2026. The 5.59% unsecured notes due October 2026 will be redeemed at 100% of their principal amount ($25 per Note), plus the accrued and unpaid interest thereon from October 31, 2021, through, but excluding, November 22, 2021. We expect to recognize a loss on extinguishment of debt of $1.6 million related to the charge-off of deferred borrowing costs on the redemption of the notes.

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.

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.

Non-GAAP Financial Measure – Adjusted Net Investment Income

On a supplemental basis, we disclose Adjusted NII, which is a financial measure calculated and presented on a basis of accounting other than in accordance with GAAP. Management believes that Adjusted NII is a useful indicator of future operations and that providing this measure may facilitate a more complete analysis and greater transparency into our ongoing operations, particularly in comparing underlying results from period to period, and afford investors a view of results that may be more easily compared to those of other companies.
