In addition, during the third quarter of 2014, SBIC I LP made follow-on investments totaling $3.4 million with two existing portfolio companies, consisting of $3.0 million of debt investments and $0.4 million of equity investments. OFS Capital’s senior loan fund, OFS Capital WM, LLC (“OFS Capital WM”), made a new investment in a recapitalized existing portfolio company in the amount of $2.4 million during the third quarter of 2014.
The total fair value of OFS Capital’s investment portfolio was $266.2 million as of September 30, 2014, which was equal to 98.0% of cost at September 30, 2014. The portfolio included outstanding loans of approximately $262.7 million in aggregate principal amount (with an aggregate fair value of $253.7 million) in 57 portfolio companies. Of this $262.7 million total, SBIC I LP held debt investments of approximately $123.2 million in aggregate principal amount ($119.6 million fair value) in 18 portfolio companies. SBIC I LP also held equity securities with a fair value of $12.5 million in 11 of these 18 portfolio companies. As of September 30, 2014, floating rate loans comprised 82% of OFS Capital’s debt investment portfolio, with the remaining 18% in fixed rate loans, as a percentage of fair value. As of September 30, 2014, 88% of OFS Capital’s investment portfolio at fair value was comprised of senior secured loans, 7% of subordinated loans, and 5% of equity investments. The weighted average yield on debt investments was 9.09% at September 30, 2014. OFS Capital had unfunded commitments of $6.6 million in four portfolio companies at quarter’s end.
RESULTS OF OPERATIONS
Total investment income increased by approximately $2.2 million, or 54%, for the three months ended September 30, 2014 as compared to the three months ended September 30, 2013. The $2.2 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 the higher yielding debt investments held by SBIC I LP, as a result of our consolidation of SBIC I LP upon closing of our acquisitions of the SBIC fund interests on December 4, 2013 (the “SBIC Acquisitions”), as well as an increase in debt investments originated by SBIC I LP during the three months ended September 30, 2014. 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 held by SBIC I LP during the three months ended September 30, 2014, as well as fee income recognized by SBIC I LP in connection with certain of its debt investments. The increase in total investment income was offset by a decrease in interest income from investments held by OFS Capital WM (“OFS Capital WM Investments”).
For the three months ended September 30, 2014, we generated total interest income from non-control/non-affiliate investments in the amount of approximately $4.4 million, of which approximately $2.7 million was generated by OFS Capital WM Investments and $1.7 million by investments held by SBIC I LP (“SBIC I LP Investments”). For the three months ended September 30, 2013, the entire interest income from non-control/non-affiliate investments of approximately $4.0 million was generated by OFS Capital WM Investments. The decrease in interest income of approximately $1.3 million generated by OFS Capital WM Investments was primarily due to the decrease in OFS Capital WM Investments in 2014 as compared with 2013 (at September 30, 2014, June 30, 2014 and March 31, 2014, the aggregate principal of OFS Capital WM Investments was approximately $139.6 million, $161.8 million and $174.5 million, respectively, while at September 30, 2013, June 30, 2013 and March 31, 2013, the aggregate principal of OFS Capital WM Investments was approximately $213.9 million, $224.6 million and $227.0 million, respectively). SBIC I LP holds all of our affiliate investments and our only control investment. In addition, during the three months ended September 30, 2014, SBIC I LP generated dividend and fee income of approximately $0.6 million. While not consolidated with us during the quarter ended September 30, 2013, SBIC I LP had interest income and dividend and fee income of approximately $1.1 million and $73 thousand, respectively, during the quarter.
Total expenses increased by approximately $0.7 million, or 28%, for the three months ended September 30, 2014 as compared to the three months ended September 30, 2013.
Interest expense increased by approximately $0.2 million for the three months ended September 30, 2014, compared to the three months ended September 30, 2013, primarily due to $0.3 million of 2014 interest expense incurred on our Small Business Administration (“SBA”) debentures (which we assumed in the December 2013 SBIC Acquisitions), offset by a 2014 decrease of approximately $0.1 million in interest expense on OFS Capital WM’s credit facility (“OFS Capital WM Credit Facility), due to reduction in the interest rate on the facility pursuant to the a November 2013 amendment to the OFS Capital WM Credit Facility.
For the three months ended September 30, 2014, we recorded $49 thousand of amortization expense of intangible asset related to the SBIC license, which intangible asset was recognized by SBIC I LP upon closing of the SBIC Acquisitions.
Management fees expense decreased by approximately $0.2 million for the three months ended September 30, 2014 compared to the three months ended September 30, 2013, which was primarily due to a decrease in base management fee of approximately $0.1 million, as a result of a reduced quarterly base management fee of 0.145833% for the remainder of 2014 effective April 1, 2014, compared with the quarterly base management fee of 0.21875% for 2013.
On May 5, 2014, we were notified by OFS Capital Management, LLC, our investment advisor (“OFS Advisor”) that, effective as of April 1, 2014, it would reduce its base management fee by two-thirds for the balance of the 2014 fiscal year. Specifically, OFS Advisor agreed to reduce its base management fee from 0.4375% per quarter to 0.145833% per quarter for the second, third, and fourth quarters of 2014. Accordingly, the effective annual base management fee for the 2014 fiscal year will be equal to 50% of the 1.75% required by our Investment Advisory and Management Agreement (“Advisory Agreement”) with OFS Advisor, or not greater than 0.875%. OFS Advisor informed us that this reduction was being made for the benefit of our shareholders to take into account unforeseen delays in completing the SBIC Acquisitions.
For the three months ended September 30, 2014, we incurred an incentive fee expense to OFS Advisor in the amount of approximately $0.7 million. We did not incur any incentive fee expense during 2013.
Net realized and unrealized gain (loss) on investments
For the three months ended September 30, 2014, we recorded approximately $0.4 million of net change in unrealized depreciation on non-control/non-affiliate investments, consisting of approximately $0.5 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 September 30, 2014, we recorded approximately $1.0 million of net change in unrealized appreciation on affiliate investments held by SBIC I LP, as well as approximately $(0.5) million of net change in unrealized depreciation on a control investment held by SBIC I LP (Tangible Software, Inc). For the three months ended September 30, 2013, we recorded approximately $(1.5) million of net change in unrealized depreciation on non-control/non-affiliate investments held by OFS Capital WM, as well as approximately $0.4 million of net change in unrealized depreciation on affiliate investment, consisting solely of our equity investment in SBIC I LP, which we accounted for at fair value at September 30, 2013.
LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES
As of September 30, 2014, OFS Capital had $14.3 million in cash and cash equivalents, including $10.3 million in capital commitments funded into SBIC I LP.
For the nine months ended September 30, 2014, OFS Capital had net cash used in operating activities of $14.4 million, primarily due to $90.7 million of cash used to purchase portfolio investments, offset by net proceeds of $59.1 million received from principal payments on portfolio investments, cash collections of $9.5 million from the sale of portfolio investments, and $6.4 million net increase in net assets resulting from operations.
Net cash provided by investing activities was $0.5 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2014 due to change in restricted cash held by OFS Capital WM resulting from a terminated unfunded revolving commitment.
Net cash used in financing activities was $0.3 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2014, primarily attributable to the $24.2 million of net repayments on OFS Capital WM’s revolving credit facility, and $9.7 million of cash paid in dividends and distributions, offset by $35.4 million in draws from SBA-guaranteed debentures.
As of September 30, 2014, OFS Capital WM had $84.8 million in debt outstanding on its $125.0 million revolving credit facility, and $9.7 million remaining in borrowing availability. As of the same date, SBIC I LP had leverage commitments of $149.9 million from the SBA, and $61.4 million of outstanding SBA-guaranteed debentures, leaving incremental borrowing capacity of $88.5 million under present SBIC regulations.
OFS Capital’s primary uses of cash are purchases of debt and equity investments, interest payments on indebtedness, payment of other expenses, and distributions to shareholders.
