"We are proud of our direct origination capabilities in the middle market, which continue to differentiate us in the industry. We believe our balance sheet is positioned for a rising interest rate environment as a majority of our loan portfolio is floating rate and all of our debt is fixed rate with long-term maturities. Our adjusted net investment income exceeded our dividend, and we believe we have a clear path to further increasing our earnings through continuing to redeploy our capital into higher yielding investments. Our focus remains the same—to protect shareholder value. As a 30% owner of the company, our external manager's interests are aligned with those of our other shareholders," said Bilal Rashid, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of OFS Capital.

PORTFOLIO AND INVESTMENT ACTIVITIES

During the second quarter of 2015, OFS Capital closed new investments in four portfolio companies totaling approximately $25.4 million. Specifically, SBIC I LP made two new investments with two portfolio companies (one new and one existing) consisting of $16.7 million of senior secured debt investments and $3.7 million of equity investments. In addition, OFS Capital made two new senior secured debt investments of $5.0 million during the second quarter of 2015.

The total fair value of OFS Capital's investment portfolio was $256.0 million as of June 30, 2015, which was equal to 100.9% of cost. The portfolio included outstanding loans of approximately $236.4 million in aggregate principal amount (with an aggregate fair value of $231.0 million) in 38 portfolio companies. Of this $236.4 million, SBIC I LP held debt investments of approximately $199.5 million in aggregate principal amount ($198.4 million fair value) in 26 portfolio companies. SBIC I LP also held equity securities with an aggregate fair value of $24.9 million. Of this $24.9 million, $23.6 million was invested in 15 portfolio companies in which SBIC I LP also held debt investments and $1.3 million was invested in one portfolio company in which SBIC I LP solely held an equity investment.

As of June 30, 2015, floating rate loans comprised 59% of OFS Capital's debt investment portfolio, with the remaining 41% in fixed rate loans, as a percentage of fair value. As of June 30, 2015, 66% of OFS Capital's investment portfolio at fair value was comprised of senior secured loans, 25% of subordinated loans, and 9% of equity investments. The weighted average yield on debt investments was 11.50% at June 30, 2015. OFS Capital had unfunded commitments of $8.1 million in six portfolio companies at quarter's end.

OFS Capital WM Asset Sale and Related Transactions

On May 28, 2015, we entered into a Loan Portfolio Purchase Agreement with Madison Capital Funding LLC ("Madison"), pursuant to which we sold 20 senior secured debt investments held by OFS Capital WM with an aggregate outstanding principal balance of $67.8 million to Madison (the "WM Asset Sale") for cash proceeds of $67.3 million. Madison is an affiliated entity of MCF Capital Management, LLC ("MCF"), which was the loan manager for OFS Capital WM prior to the WM Asset Sale under a Loan and Security Agreement among OFS Capital WM, MCF, Wells Fargo Securities, LLC, each of the Lenders from time to time party thereto, and Wells Fargo Delaware Trust Company, N.A. (the "Loan and Security Agreement").

In connection with the WM Asset Sale, we recognized a realized gain of $2.7 million, and reversed previously recorded net unrealized appreciation associated with the sold assets in the total amount of $2.1 million. The realized gain pertained primarily to the net unrealized depreciation embedded in the sold assets prior to our IPO.

On May 28, 2015, pursuant to the Loan and Security Agreement, we applied $52.4 million from the sale proceeds of the WM Asset Sale to pay in full and retire OFS Capital WM's secured revolving credit facility with Wells Fargo Bank, N.A. ("WM Credit Facility"). As a result of the termination of the WM Credit Facility, we wrote-off the remaining related unamortized deferred financing closing costs of $1.2 million on the revolving line of credit.

On May 28, 2015, in connection with the WM Asset Sale, we entered into a Loan Administration Services Agreement with Madison pursuant to which Madison will provide loan servicing and other administrative services to OFS Capital WM with respect certain of its remaining loan assets. In return for its loan administration services, Madison will receive a quarterly loan administration fee of 0.25% per annum based on the average daily principal balances of the loan assets for such quarter. For the three and six months ended June 30, 2015, we incurred loan administration fee of $5,000 to Madison.

RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

Investment income

Total investment income increased by approximately $3.4 million, or 73%, for the three months ended June 30, 2015 as compared to the three months ended June 30, 2014. The $3.4 million increase in total investment income was due to an increase in interest income, and dividend and fee income. The increase in interest income was primarily attributable to a significant increase in debt investments originated by SBIC I LP ("SBIC I LP Investments") since June 30, 2014, which typically have a higher yield than the debt investments held by OFS Capital WM ("OFS Capital WM Investments"). The increase in dividend and fee income was primarily attributable to our recognition of dividend income contractually earned but not declared on certain of our preferred equity investments primarily held by SBIC I LP during the three months ended June 30, 2015, as well as fee income recognized by SBIC I LP in connection with certain of its debt investments. The increase in total investment income from SBIC I LP Investments was offset by a decrease in interest income from OFS Capital WM Investments due to a decrease in OFS Capital WM Investments since the quarter ended June 30, 2014.

Interest Income:

For the three months ended June 30, 2015, we generated total interest income from non-control/non-affiliate investments of approximately $6.1 million, of which approximately $4.5 million was generated by SBIC I LP Investments and $1.6 million by OFS Capital WM Investments. For the three months ended June 30, 2014, interest income from non-control/non-affiliate investments was approximately $3.5 million, of which approximately $0.7 million was generated by SBIC I LP Investments and $2.8 million by OFS Capital WM Investments. The increase in interest income from non-control/non-affiliate investments generated by SBIC I LP Investments of approximately $3.8 million was attributable to an increase in debt investments originated by SBIC I LP since the quarter ended June 30, 2014. The decrease in interest income from non-control/non-affiliate investments generated by OFS Capital WM Investments of approximately $1.2 million was primarily due to the decrease in OFS Capital WM Investments since the quarter ended June 30, 2014.

SBIC I LP holds all of our affiliate investments. For the three months ended June 30, 2015 and 2014, SBIC I LP generated total interest income from affiliate investments of approximately $1.4 million and $0.8 million, respectively. The increase in total interest income from affiliate investments of approximately $0.6 million was primarily due to an increase in debt investments originated by SBIC I LP since the quarter ended June 30, 2014.

SBIC I LP held our only control investment in Tangible Software, Inc. ("Tangible") until December 17, 2014, when the Tangible investment was restructured. The post-restructured debt investment was categorized as an affiliate investment. For the three months ended June 30, 2014, SBIC I LP generated total interest income from its control investment of approximately $0.3 million.

Dividend and Fee Income:

During the three months ended June 30, 2015 and 2014, SBIC I LP generated dividend and fee income of approximately $0.6 million and $0.1 million, respectively. The increase in dividend and fee income of approximately $0.5 million was primarily due to our recognition of approximately $0.3 million of dividend income contractually earned but not declared on certain of our preferred equity investments primarily held by SBIC I LP during the three months ended June 31, 2015, as well as fee income of approximately $0.2 million recognized by SBIC I LP in connection with certain of its debt investments.

Total expenses

Total expenses increased by approximately $2.7 million, or 104%, for the three months ended June 30, 2015 as compared to the three months ended June 30, 2014.

Interest expense increased by approximately $0.3 million for the three months ended June 30, 2015, compared to the three months ended June 30, 2014, due to an increase of approximately $0.9 million in interest expense incurred on our SBA debentures, the balance of which increased substantially at June 30, 2015 compared with the debenture balance at June 30, 2014. This increase was offset by a 2015 decrease of approximately $0.6 million in interest expense on the WM Credit Facility, primarily due to lower borrowings on the facility in 2015 and the termination of the facility on May 28, 2015.

Amortization and write-off of deferred financing closing costs increased by approximately $1.2 million for the three months ended June 30, 2015, compared to the three months ended June 30, 2014, primarily due to a write-off of the remaining deferred financing closing costs in the amount of approximately $1.2 million in connection with our full payoff and retirement of the WM Credit Facility on May 28, 2015.

Management fee expense totaled approximately $1.4 million for the three months ended June 30, 2015, consisting of approximately $1.3 million of base management fee expense we incurred to OFS Capital Management, LLC, our investment advisor ("OFS Advisor"), and approximately $0.1 million of loan management fee charged by MCF, the loan manager for OFS Capital WM prior to the termination of the WM Credit Facility. Management fee expense totaled approximately $0.5 million for the three months ended June 30, 2014, consisting of approximately $0.3 million of base management fee expense we incurred to OFS Advisor and approximately $0.2 million of loan management fee charged by MCF. The base management fee to OFS Advisor increased by a total of approximately $1.0 million, of which approximately $0.1 million was due to an increase in our average total assets at June 30, 2015 and March 31, 2015 ("2015 Management Fee Base"), as compared to our average total assets at June 30, 2014 and March 31, 2014 ("2014 Management Fee Base"), and approximately $0.9 million was due to the reset of our base management fee to 0.4375% per quarter effective January 1, 2015 as compared with 0.145833% effective April 1, 2014. The increase in the 2015 Management Fee Base as compared to the 2014 Management Fee Base was largely attributable to the higher SBIC I LP Investments balance at June 30, 2015 as compared to June 30, 2014.

For the three months ended June 30, 2015 we incurred an incentive fee expense to OFS Advisor in the amount of approximately $0.2 million. We did not incur an incentive fee expense for the three months ended June 30, 2014.

Net realized and unrealized gain (loss) on investments

For the three months ended June 30, 2015, we recorded net realized gain on non-control/non affiliate investments of approximately $2.8 million, of which approximately $2.7 million represented net realized gain in connection with the WM Asset Sale. For the three months ended June 30, 2015, we recorded net realized gain on affiliate investments of approximately $1.5 million related to the sale of two of our equity investments.

For the three months ended June 30, 2015, we recorded net change in unrealized appreciation/depreciation on non-control/non-affiliate investments of approximately $(0.7) million, consisting of approximately $(2.1) million of a reversal of previously recorded net unrealized appreciation associated with the WM Asset Sale, net unrealized depreciation of $(0.3) million on debt investments held by OFS Capital WM ($(0.2) million was attributable to its sole non-accrual loan), offset by approximately $1.7 million of net unrealized appreciation on debt and equity investments held by SBIC I LP. In addition, for the three months ended June 30, 2015, we recorded net change in unrealized appreciation/depreciation on affiliate investments of approximately $1.1 million, consisting of approximately $1.8 million of net unrealized appreciation on debt and equity investments held by SBIC I LP, offset by approximately $(0.7) million of a reversal of previously recorded net unrealized appreciation in connection with an equity sale.

For the three months ended June 30, 2014, we recorded approximately $(1.2) million of net change in unrealized depreciation on non-control/non-affiliate investments, consisting of approximately $(1.3) million of net change in unrealized depreciation on non-control/non-affiliate investments held by OFS Capital WM, and approximately $0.1 million of net change in unrealized depreciation on non-control/non-affiliate investments held by SBIC I LP. In addition, for the three months ended June 30, 2014, we recorded approximately $0.1 million of net change in unrealized appreciation on affiliate investments held by SBIC I LP, as well as approximately $(0.4) million of net change in unrealized depreciation on a control investment held by SBIC I LP (Tangible).

LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES

At June 30, 2015 and December 31, 2014, we had cash and cash equivalents of $35.6 million and $12.4 million, respectively. During the six months ended June 30, 2015, we had net cash provided by operating activities of $80.0 million, primarily due to cash collections of $89.1 million from the sale of our portfolio investments, including $7.2 million of cash collection from an investment we sold in December 2014, $67.3 million from the WM Asset Sale, and $3.5 million from the sale of our equity interests in two portfolio companies, $31.2 million of cash we received from principal payments on our portfolio investments, as well as our $10.6 million net increase in net assets resulting from operations. These cash receipts were offset by $45.9 million of cash we used to purchase portfolio investments.

Net cash used in financing activities was $(56.8) million for the six months ended June 30, 2015, primarily attributable to $22.6 million of draws from our SBA debentures (net of the fees), offset by the $72.6 million of net repayments on the WM Credit Facility which was paid in full and retired on May 28, 2015 and $6.3 million of cash we paid in dividends and distributions.

We intend to generate additional cash flows from our operations, future offerings of securities, and future borrowings. In addition, we may determine to sell lower-yielding investments in the portfolio to generate liquidity for the acquisition of higher-yielding investments. Our primary uses of funds are investments in debt and equity investments, interest payments on indebtedness, payment of other expenses, and cash distributions to our shareholders.

Non-GAAP Financial Measure – Adjusted Net Investment Income ("Adjusted NII")

On a supplemental basis, we disclose Adjusted NII (including on a per share basis), which is a financial measure calculated and presented on a basis of methodology other than in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles of the United States of America ("non-GAAP"). Adjusted NII represents net investment income, (1) excluding write-offs of deferred financing closing costs associated with our permanent reductions of the WM Credit Facility, and (2) adding back the amount of net investment income incentive fee expenses associated with the write-offs that we would have incurred had the write-offs not occurred. Management believes that providing Adjusted NII may facilitate a more complete analysis and greater transparency into OFS Capital's 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.

The following table provides a reconciliation from net investment income (the most comparable GAAP measure) to Adjusted NII for the periods presented:

   

Quarter Ended June 30,

2015 2014
(Dollar amounts in thousands, except per share data)
 
Net investment income $ 2,752 $ 2,099
 
Write-off of deferred financing closing costs 1,216 -
Incentive fee (609) -
Write-off of deferred financing closing costs, net 607 -
 
Adjusted net investment income $ 3,359 $ 2,099
 
Adjusted net investment income per common share:
Basic and diluted $ 0.35 $ 0.22
 
Weighted average shares outstanding:
Basic and diluted 9,663,081 9,632,491
 

Adjusted NII may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other companies, as it is a non-GAAP financial measure that is not based on a comprehensive set of accounting rules or principles and therefore may be defined differently by other companies. In addition, Adjusted NII should be considered in addition to, not as a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures determined in accordance with GAAP.
