Portfolio Activity
The fair value of our investment portfolio was $72.3 million at June 30, 2018, increasing 11.1% compared to March 31, 2018. In the second quarter of 2018, the Company added investments in six new portfolio companies, investing $12.9 million, and had realizations totaling $6.9 million. The current weighted average yield of our portfolio based on the cost and fair value of our yielding investments was 13.6% and 14.3%, respectively, as of June 30, 2018.

In May 2018, Berlin Packaging repaid its second lien term loan at par in the amount of $6.7 million. We recorded previously unamortized discount of $0.2 million as additional interest income as a result of this repayment. This investment was initiated in December 2015 and generated a gross unlevered internal rate of return of 11.2% and a return on investment of 1.25x.

Also in May 2018, we purchased $1.7 million of second lien term loan in Ensono, LP., a leading hybrid IT managed service provider focused on mission critical workloads for enterprise customers in the United States and Europe. The Ensono second lien term loan was purchased at a 4.0% discount to par, earns interest payable in cash at a rate of LIBOR+9.25%, and matures in April 2026.

In June 2018, we made investments in five new portfolio companies. We purchased $6.0 million of second lien term loan in Ministry Brands, LLC., a provider of member management and financial planning software as well as payment processing technology solutions for association and member-based organizations, non-profit organizations, and private schools (K-12). The Ministry Brands second lien term loan was purchased at a 1.0% discount to par and earns interest payable in cash at a rate of LIBOR+8.0% with a 1% floor, and matures in June 2023.

We purchased $3.8 million of second lien term loan in PowerSchool, a provider of software solutions catered to K-12 schools in the United States and Canada. The PowerSchool second lien term loan was purchased at a 1.0% discount to par, earns interest payable in cash at a rate of LIBOR+6.75%, and matures in June 2026.

We purchased $0.9 million of second lien term loan in Vertafore, Inc., a leading provider of software and services for the property and casualty insurance distribution market. The Vertafore second lien term loan was purchased at a 1.0% discount to par, earns interest payable in cash at a rate of LIBOR+7.25%, and matures in July 2026.

We purchased $0.4 million of second lien term loan in FirstLight Fiber, a leading independent bandwidth infrastructure provider across New York and northern New England. The FirstLight second lien term loan was purchased at a 1.0% discount to par, earns interest payable in cash at a rate of LIBOR+7.50%, and matures in June 2026.

Finally, we purchased $0.3 million of second lien term loan in Edelman Financial, a provider of independent, technology-enabled financial advisory services and investment advice to employer-sponsored defined contribution plans and retail investors. The Edelman second lien term loan was purchased at a 0.5% discount to par, earns interest payable in cash at a rate of LIBOR+6.75%, and matures in June 2026.

Operating Results
Investment income totaled $2.6 million for the second quarter of 2018, increasing 6.1% compared to $2.5 million in the corresponding quarter of 2017.

Operating expenses for the second quarter of 2018 were $1.9 million, a decrease of $0.4 million, or 16.9%, compared to operating expenses for the second quarter of 2017. Interest expense and bank fees decreased by 18.6% to $0.8 million from $1.0 million compared to the same period in the prior year largely due to lower average balance outstanding on our Credit Facility and lower amortization of debt issuance costs. Management fees decreased by 22.6% to $0.4 million from $0.5 million due to lower base management fees as a result of lower average asset base subject to the base management fee. Professional fees decreased by 22.9% to $0.3 million from $0.4 million primarily due to a decrease in legal and audit related expenses. Other general and administrative expenses decreased by 1.3% to $0.4 million from $0.4 million compared to same quarter prior year.

The resulting net investment income was $0.7 million or $0.03 per share, for the second quarter of 2018, compared to $0.1 million, or $0.01 per share, for the second quarter of 2017.

We recorded net realized and unrealized gain on investments totaling $0.3 million or $0.02 per share, for the second quarter of 2018, compared to net realized and unrealized loss of $(5.0) million, or $(0.25) per share, for the second quarter of 2017.

Overall, we experienced a net increase in net assets resulting from operations of $1.0 million, or $0.05 per share, for the second quarter of 2018. After declaring a quarterly distribution during the period of $0.02 per share, our net asset value increased 1.2% from $2.43 per share as of March 31, 2018 to $2.46 per share as of June 30, 2018.

Liquidity and Capital Resources
At June 30, 2018, we had cash and cash equivalents totaling $19.4 million, with $5.3 million due to broker for unsettled trades. The total amount outstanding under our credit facility at June 30, 2018 was $36.0 million with $0.0 million available to draw.

Review of Strategic Alternatives
As previously announced, OHAI's Board of Directors continues to explore a variety of options that could provide more scale to OHAI. These options could include, among other things, raising additional capital, a merger or joint venture with another party, the acquisition of existing investment portfolios, or other strategic transactions. To assist OHAI in this process, the Board has retained Keefe, Bruyette & Woods, Inc. ("KBW") as its financial advisor and investment banker. While we are actively working with KBW to explore these options and committed to taking actions that we believe will maximize shareholder value, there is no assurance that the Company will execute on any of them. No specific timetable or formal process has been set and OHAI does not expect to comment further or periodically provide updates to the market with additional information unless and until the Company's Board of Directors has approved a specific transaction or otherwise deems disclosure appropriate or necessary.

Additional Disclosure
Investments are considered to be fully realized when the original investment at the security level has been substantially exited. Internal rate of return, or IRR, is a measure of our discounted cash flows (inflows and outflows). Specifically, IRR is the discount rate at which the net present value of all cash flows is equal to zero. That is, IRR is the discount rate at which the present value of total capital invested in our investments is equal to the present value of all realized returns from the investments. Our IRR calculations are unaudited. Capital invested, with respect to an investment, represents the aggregate cost of the investment, net of any upfront fees paid at closing. Realized returns, with respect to an investment, represents the total cash received with respect to an investment, including all amortization payments, interest, dividends, prepayment fees, administrative fees, amendment fees, accrued interest, and other fees and proceeds. Gross IRR, with respect to an investment, is calculated based on the dates that we invested capital and dates we received distributions. Gross IRR reflects historical results relating to our past performance and is not necessarily indicative of our future results. In addition, gross IRR does not reflect the effect of management fees, expenses, incentive fees or taxes borne, or to be borne, by us or our stockholders, and would be lower if it did.
