OFS Capital Corporation Announces Second Quarter 2022 Financial Results
OFS Capital Corporation (NASDAQ: OFS) ("OFS Capital," the "Company," "we," "us," or "our") today announced its financial results for the fiscal quarter ended June 30, 2022. On August 2, 2022, OFS Capital's Board of Directors declared a distribution of $0.29 per common share for the third quarter of 2022, payable on September 30, 2022 to stockholders of record as of September 23, 2022.
SECOND QUARTER FINANCIAL HIGHLIGHTS
"We believe our balance sheet is well positioned to navigate through an uncertain economic environment with rising interest rates and a slow down in the economy," said Bilal Rashid, OFS Capital's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "Approximately, 98% of our loan portfolio is senior secured and 93% of our loans are floating rate, with 63% of our outstanding debt being fixed rate."
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.
As of June 30, 2022, based on fair value, our investment portfolio was comprised of the following:
During the quarter ended June 30, 2022, two loans with an aggregate fair value of $10.4 million were placed on non-accrual status. One of those loans is a PIK loan where we stopped accruing our PIK coupon due to a decline in its fair value; however, that portfolio company remains current on another debt tranche that requires cash interest payments.
RESULTS OF OPERATIONS
For the quarter ended June 30, 2022, total investment income of $10.4 million decreased by $0.5 million compared to the quarter ended March 31, 2022, primarily due to a decrease of $1.0 million in dividend and fee income, offset by an increase of $0.5 million in interest income. Interest income increased $0.5 million compared to the prior quarter primarily due to a increase in our portfolio's weighted-average performing income yield to 9.1%.
For the quarter ended June 30, 2022, total expenses of $4.2 million decreased by $3.8 million compared to the quarter ended March 31, 2022, primarily due to a reversal of a previously accrued capital gains fee due to a $14.9 million reduction in net unrealized appreciation on the investment portfolio.
Net Gain (Loss) on Investments
Our portfolio experienced net losses of $15.1 million in the second quarter of 2022, primarily as a result of unrealized depreciation of $9.3 million and $6.7 million on our CLO investments and broadly syndicated loan investments, respectively, attributable to widening of liquid credit market spreads. These losses were partially offset by net gains, primarily consisting of unrealized appreciation on our common equity investments that were primarily attributable to an increase in fair value of $7.8 million on our equity investment in Pfanstiehl Holdings, Inc.
LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES
As of June 30, 2022, we had $14.8 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 $2.9 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 June 30, 2022, we had an unused commitment of $35.0 million under our senior secured revolving credit facility with Pacific Western Bank, as well as an unused commitment of $15.9 million under our revolving credit facility with BNP Paribas ("BNP Facility"), both subject to borrowing base requirements and other covenants. Based on fair values and equity capital at June 30, 2022, we could access all unused commitments under our credit facilities and remain in compliance with the 1940 Act asset coverage requirement.
On June 24, 2022, we amended the BNP Facility to, among other things: (i) extend the reinvestment period under the BNP Facility for three years from June 20, 2022 to June 20, 2025; (ii) extend the maturity date under the BNP Facility from June 20, 2024 to June 20, 2027; (iii) convert the benchmark interest rate from LIBOR to SOFR; (iv) increase the applicable margin by 0.40% on all classes of loans; and (v) increase the applicable margin floor from 1.925% to 2.65%.

Statements in this press release regarding management's future expectations, beliefs, intentions, goals, strategies, plans or prospects, including statements relating to: OFS Capital's results of operations, including net investment income, adjusted net investment income, net asset value and net investment gains and losses and the factors that may affect such results; management's belief that the Company's balance sheet is well positioned for the future in a rising interest rate environment due to a high percentage of floating rate loans in the portfolio and a majority of liabilities that have a fixed rate of interest, when there can be no assurance that such a composition will lead to future success; and other factors may constitute forward-looking statements for purposes of the safe harbor protection under applicable securities laws. Forward-looking statements can be identified by terminology such as "anticipate," "believe," "could," "could increase the likelihood," "estimate," "expect," "intend," "is planned," "may," "should," "will," "will enable," "would be expected," "look forward," "may provide," "would" or similar terms, variations of such terms or the negative of those terms. Such forward-looking statements involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors including those risks, uncertainties and factors referred to in OFS Capital's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2021 filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission under the section "Risk Factors," and in "Part II, Item 1A.

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 June 30, 2022 and March 31, 2022 and six months ended June 30, 2022 and 2021, respectively (dollar amounts in thousands, except per share data) (unaudited):
Although these non-GAAP financial measures are intended to enhance investors' understanding of our business and performance, these non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered an alternative to GAAP.
