GREENWICH, Conn., Oct. 27, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Oxford Square Capital Corp. (NasdaqGS: OXSQ) (NasdaqGS: OXSQL) (NasdaqGS: OXSQZ) (the “Company,” “we,” “us” or “our”) announced today its financial results and related information for the quarter ended September 30, 2020.

• As of September 30, 2020, net asset value (“NAV”) per share was $3.85, compared with the NAV per share of $3.54 at the prior quarter end.

  • For the quarter ended September 30, 2020 we recorded GAAP net investment income of approximately $4.3 million, or $0.09 per share, which was approximately equal to the net investment income earned during the second quarter of 2020.

  • We recorded net unrealized appreciation of approximately $20.9 million and net realized losses on investments of approximately $4.4 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2020, compared to net unrealized appreciation of approximately $19.0 million and net realized losses on investments of approximately $2.8 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2020.

  • In total, we had a net increase in net assets from operations of approximately $20.8 million, or $0.42 per share, for the quarter ended September 30, 2020, compared with a net increase in net assets from operations of approximately $20.6 million, or $0.41 per share, for the quarter ended June 30, 2020.

• Total investment income for the quarter ended September 30, 2020 amounted to approximately $8.2 million, compared with approximately $8.3 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2020. For the quarter ended September 30, 2020 the components of investment income were as follows:

  • $4.5 million from our debt investments,

  • $3.6 million from our CLO equity investments, and

  • $0.2 million from all other sources.

• Our total expenses for the quarter ended September 30, 2020 were approximately $4.0 million, compared with total expenses of approximately $3.9 million for the second quarter of 2020.

• During the third quarter of 2020, we made investments of approximately $18.3 million and received proceeds of approximately $8.3 million from sales of investments, and $0.6 million from repayments and amortization payments on our debt investments.

• As of September 30, 2020, the following metrics applied (note that none of these values represents a total return to shareholders):

  • The weighted average yield of our debt investments was 8.3% at current cost, compared with 8.1% as of June 30, 2020.

  • The weighted average effective yield of our CLO equity investments at current cost was 7.7%, compared with 7.1% as of June 30, 2020.

  • The weighted average cash distribution yield of our cash income producing CLO equity investments at current cost was 11.7%, compared with 11.6% as of June 30, 2020.

• Our weighted average credit rating was 2.3 based on total fair value and 2.5 based on total principal value as of September 30, 2020, which is unchanged compared to June 30, 2020.

• As of September 30, 2020, we had two debt investments on non-accrual status, with a combined fair value of $5.7 million. Also, as of September 30, 2020, our preferred equity investments in one of our portfolio companies were on non-accrual status, which had zero fair value.

• On October 22, 2020, our Board of Directors declared the following distributions on our common stock:

In light of current economic and market conditions, including as a result of the global crisis caused by the spread of the COVID-19 virus, we believe that no reliance should be placed on these distributions representing the prospect for any particular level of common stock distributions for any periods in the future.

We will host a conference call to discuss our third quarter results today, Tuesday, October 27, 2020 at 9:00 AM ET. Please call 1-888-339-0740 to participate. A recording of the conference call will be available to replay for approximately 30 days following the call. The replay number is 1-877-344-7529, and the replay passcode is 10149450.

____________

(1) Represents per share net investment income for the period, based upon weighted average shares outstanding.
(2) Net realized and unrealized gains/(losses) include rounding adjustments to reconcile change in net asset value per share.
(3) Management monitors available taxable earnings, including net investment income and realized capital gains, to determine if a tax return of capital may occur for the year. To the extent the Company’s taxable earnings fall below the total amount of the Company’s distributions for that fiscal year, a portion of those distributions may be deemed a tax return of capital to the Company’s stockholders. The ultimate tax character of the Company’s earnings cannot be determined until tax returns are prepared after the end of the fiscal year. The amounts and sources of distributions reported are only estimates (based on an average of the reported tax character historically) and are not being provided for U.S. tax reporting purposes.
(4) Total return based on market value equals the increase or decrease of ending market value over beginning market value, plus distributions, divided by the beginning market value, assuming distribution reinvestment prices obtained under the Company’s distribution reinvestment plan, excluding any discounts. Total return is not annualized.
(5) Total return based on net asset value equals the increase or decrease of ending net asset value over beginning net asset value, plus distributions, divided by the beginning net asset value. Total return is not annualized.
(6) Annualized.
(7) Portfolio turnover rate is calculated using the lesser of the year-to-date cash investment sales and debt repayments or year-to-date cash investment purchases over the average of the total investments at fair value.
