Oaktree Specialty Lending Corporation Announces Fourth Fiscal Quarter and Full Year 2020 Financial Results and Declares Increased Distribution of $0.11 Per Share

LOS ANGELES, CA, Nov. 19, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Oaktree Specialty Lending Corporation (NASDAQ: OCSL) (“Oaktree Specialty Lending” or the “Company”), a specialty finance company, today announced its financial results for the fiscal quarter and year ended September 30, 2020.

Financial Highlights for the Quarter and Year Ended September 30, 2020 

  • Total investment income was $43.6 million ($0.31 per share) and $143.1 million ($1.02 per share) for the fourth fiscal quarter and full fiscal year of 2020, respectively, as compared with $34.4 million ($0.24 per share) and $147.7 million ($1.05 per share) for the third fiscal quarter of 2020 and the full fiscal year of 2019, respectively. The increase in investment income for the quarter was primarily driven by higher make-whole interest income, original issue discount ("OID") acceleration and prepayment fees resulting from exits of investments. The decrease in investment income for the full year was primarily driven by lower LIBOR and lower OID income, partially offset by higher make-whole interest income and prepayment fees resulting from exits of investments, a larger average investment portfolio and higher yields on new originations.

  • GAAP net investment income was $24.5 million ($0.17 per share) and $72.0 million ($0.51 per share) for the fourth fiscal quarter and full fiscal year of 2020, respectively, as compared with $16.8 million ($0.12 per share) and $67.9 million ($0.48 per share) for the third fiscal quarter of 2020 and the full fiscal year of 2019, respectively. The increase for the quarter was primarily due to higher investment income. The full-year increase was primarily driven by interest expense savings from the issuance of the 2025 Notes and subsequent repayment of the 2024 Notes and 2028 Notes and lower LIBOR, partially offset by lower investment income.

  • Adjusted net investment income was $24.5 million ($0.17 per share) and $71.6 million ($0.51 per share) for the fourth fiscal quarter and full fiscal year of 2020, respectively, as compared with $16.8 million ($0.12 per share) and $69.0 million ($0.49 per share) for the third fiscal quarter of 2020 and the full fiscal year of 2019, respectively. The increase in adjusted net investment income for the quarter was primarily driven by higher investment income. The increase in adjusted net investment income for the full year was primarily driven by interest expense savings from the issuance of the 2025 Notes and subsequent repayment of the 2024 Notes and 2028 Notes and lower LIBOR, partially offset by lower investment income.

  • Net asset value ("NAV") per share was $6.49 as of September 30, 2020, up 6% from $6.09 as of June 30, 2020. The increase in NAV for the quarter was primarily attributable to unrealized gains resulting from price increases on liquid debt investments and the impact of tighter credit spreads on private debt investment valuations following the improvement in broader credit market conditions, realized gains on equity investments and undistributed net investment income. NAV was down 2% from $6.60 as of September 30, 2019 primarily due to depreciation of certain debt and equity investments related to increased market volatility resulting from the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic in March 2020, partially offset by undistributed net investment income.

  • Originated $148.5 million of new investment commitments and received $184.2 million of proceeds from prepayments, exits, other paydowns and sales during the quarter ended September 30, 2020. Of these new investment commitments, 83.0% were first lien loans and 16.7% were second lien loans. The weighted average yield on new debt investments was 10.6%.

  • Total debt outstanding was $714.8 million as of September 30, 2020. The total debt to equity ratio was 0.78x, and the net debt to equity ratio was 0.74x, after adjusting for cash and cash equivalents.

  • Liquidity as of September 30, 2020 was composed of $39.1 million of unrestricted cash and cash equivalents and $285.2 million of undrawn capacity under the credit facility (subject to borrowing base and other limitations). Unfunded investment commitments were $157.5 million, with approximately $94.0 million that can be drawn immediately as the remaining amount is subject to certain milestones that must be met by portfolio companies.

  • A quarterly cash distribution was declared of $0.11 per share, a 5% increase from the prior quarter distribution and the second consecutive quarterly distribution increase. The distribution will be paid in cash and is payable on December 31, 2020 to stockholders of record on December 15, 2020.

Armen Panossian, Chief Executive Officer and Chief Investment Officer, said, “The fourth quarter completed a strong year for OCSL, highlighted by continued earnings growth and robust portfolio performance in a volatile and challenging investment environment. For the quarter, OCSL delivered $0.17 of net investment income per share, a record under Oaktree’s management, reflecting our ability to deploy capital on attractive terms and complemented by the successful exit of one of our recent opportunistic investments, NuStar Logistics, L.P. We also took advantage of the recent favorable market conditions to sell certain investments at gains, resulting in NAV growth of over 6% during the quarter, and bringing NAV within 2% of its pre-pandemic level as of December 31, 2019. In light of our continued strong performance, the Board of Directors announced a 5% increase to the December dividend to $0.11 per share, the second consecutive quarter with a dividend increase. All told, we believe we are very well-positioned for fiscal year 2021.”

Distribution Declaration

The Board of Directors declared a quarterly distribution of $0.11 per share, an increase of 5%, or $0.005 per share, from the prior quarter, payable on December 31, 2020 to stockholders of record on December 15, 2020.

Distributions are paid primarily from distributable (taxable) income. To the extent taxable earnings for a fiscal taxable year fall below the total amount of distributions for that fiscal year, a portion of those distributions may be deemed a return of capital to the Company’s stockholders.

Total investment income for the quarter ended September 30, 2020 was $43.6 million and included $37.2 million of interest income from portfolio investments, $2.6 million of payment-in-kind ("PIK") interest income, $3.6 million of fee income and $0.3 million of dividend income. Total investment income increased by $9.2 million as compared to the quarter ended June 30, 2020, primarily driven by higher make-whole interest income, OID acceleration and prepayment fees resulting from exits of investments.

Total investment income for the year ended September 30, 2020 was $143.1 million and included $125.6 million of interest income from portfolio investments, $7.9 million of PIK interest income, $8.5 million of fee income and $1.2 million of dividend income. Total investment income decreased by $4.6 million as compared to the year ended September 30, 2019, primarily driven by lower LIBOR and lower OID income, partially offset by higher make-whole interest income and prepayment fees resulting from exits of investments, a larger average investment portfolio and higher yields on new originations.

Net expenses for the quarter totaled $19.1 million, up $1.4 million from the quarter ended June 30, 2020. The increase in net expenses was primarily due to higher incentive fees resulting from higher investment income, partially offset by interest expense savings from lower LIBOR.

Net expenses for the year totaled $71.1 million, down $8.7 million from the year ended September 30, 2019. The decrease in net expenses was primarily due to interest expense savings from the issuance of the 2025 Notes in February 2020 and subsequent repayment of the 2024 Notes and 2028 Notes in March 2020 as well as lower LIBOR and lower incentive fees (net of waivers).

Adjusted net investment income was $24.5 million ($0.17 per share) for the quarter ended September 30, 2020, up from $16.8 million ($0.12 per share) for the quarter ended June 30, 2020, primarily driven by higher investment income.

Adjusted net investment income was $71.6 million ($0.51 per share) for the full fiscal year of 2020, as compared with $69.0 million ($0.49 per share) for the full fiscal year of 2019. The increase in adjusted net investment income for the full year was primarily driven by interest expense savings from the issuance of the 2025 Notes in February 2020 and subsequent repayment of the 2024 Notes and 2028 Notes in March 2020 and lower LIBOR, partially offset by lower investment income.

Net realized and unrealized gains, net of taxes, were $46.1 million for the quarter and were primarily attributable to unrealized gains resulting from price increases on liquid debt investments, the impact of tighter credit spreads on private debt investment valuations following the improvement in broader credit market conditions and realized gains on equity investments. Net realized and unrealized losses, net of taxes, were $32.8 million for the year, primarily driven by unrealized depreciation of certain debt and equity investments related to increased market volatility resulting from the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic in March 2020.

4 Net new investments consists of new funded investment activity less proceeds from prepayments, exits, other paydowns and sales.

As of September 30, 2020, the fair value of the investment portfolio was $1.6 billion and was composed of investments in 113 companies. These included debt investments in 88 companies, equity investments in 35 companies, including our limited partnership interests in two private equity funds, and the Company's investment in Senior Loan Fund JV I, LLC (“SLF JV I”). 11 of the equity investments were in companies in which the Company also had a debt investment.

As of September 30, 2020, 94.3% of the Company's portfolio at fair value consisted of debt investments, including 62.3% of first lien loans, 21.7% of second lien loans and 10.3% of unsecured debt investments, including the debt investments in SLF JV I. This compared to 61.3% of first lien loans, 19.6% of second lien loans and 13.3% of unsecured debt investments, including the debt investments in SLF JV I at fair value as of June 30, 2020.

As of September 30, 2020, there were two investments on non-accrual status, which represented 1.2% of the debt portfolio at cost and 0.1% at fair value. During the quarter ended September 30, 2020, one investment was removed from non-accrual status following a restructuring.

The Company's investments in SLF JV I totaled $117.4 million at fair value as of September 30, 2020, up 7% from $110.0 million as of June 30, 2020. The increase in the value of the Company's investments in SLF JV I was primarily driven by SLF JV I’s use of leverage and unrealized appreciation in the underlying investment portfolio resulting from the improvement in broader credit market conditions during the quarter.

As of September 30, 2020, SLF JV I had $313.5 million in assets, including senior secured loans to 56 portfolio companies. This compared to $315.4 million in assets, including senior secured loans to 53 portfolio companies, as of June 30, 2020. As of September 30, 2020, one investment held by SLF JV I was on non-accrual status, which represented 0.7% of the SLF JV I portfolio at cost and 0.4% at fair value, respectively. SLF JV I generated income of $1.8 million for the Company during the quarter ended September 30, 2020, down slightly as compared to $2.0 million in the prior quarter. As of September 30, 2020, SLF JV I had $82.1 million of undrawn capacity (subject to borrowing base and other limitations) on its $250 million senior revolving credit facility, and its debt to equity ratio was 1.3x.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

As of September 30, 2020, the Company had total principal value of debt outstanding of $714.8 million, including $414.8 million of outstanding borrowings under the revolving credit facility and $300.0 million of the 2025 Notes. The funding mix was composed of 58% secured and 42% unsecured borrowings as of September 30, 2020. The Company has no near-term debt maturities, as the next scheduled maturity is for the revolving credit facility in February 2024. The Company was in compliance with all financial covenants under its credit facility as of September 30, 2020.

As of September 30, 2020, the Company had $39.1 million of unrestricted cash and cash equivalents and $285.2 million of undrawn capacity on its credit facility (subject to borrowing base and other limitations). Unfunded investment commitments were $157.5 million as of September 30, 2020, with approximately $94.0 million that can be drawn immediately as the remaining amount is subject to certain milestones that must be met by portfolio companies. The Company has analyzed cash and cash equivalents, availability under our credit facility, the ability to rotate out of certain assets and amounts of unfunded commitments that could be drawn and believe our liquidity and capital resources are sufficient to take advantage of market opportunities in the current economic climate.

As of September 30, 2020, the weighted average interest rate on debt outstanding was 2.7%, unchanged as compared to 2.7% as of June 30, 2020.

The Company’s total debt to equity ratio was 0.78x and 0.89x as of September 30, 2020 and June 30, 2020, respectively. Net debt to equity ratio was 0.74x and 0.83x as of September 30, 2020 and June 30, 2020, respectively.

Recent Developments

Merger Agreement

On October 28, 2020, the Company entered into an agreement to merge with Oaktree Strategic Income Corporation (“OCSI”), an affiliated business development company managed by Oaktree Fund Advisors, LLC, with the Company as the surviving company. Under the terms of the proposed merger, OCSI shareholders will receive an amount of shares of the Company's common stock with a NAV equal to the NAV of shares of OCSI common stock that they hold at the time of closing. The transaction is subject to approval by OCSI and the Company's stockholders and other customary closing conditions. Assuming these conditions are satisfied, the transaction is expected to close in the first calendar quarter of 2021.

Management Fee Waiver

In connection with entry into the merger agreement described above, Oaktree has agreed to waive $750,000 of base management fees payable to it under the Investment Advisory Agreement in each of the eight quarters immediately following the closing of the transaction (for an aggregate waiver of $6.0 million of base management fees).

Upsize of Credit Facility

On October 28, 2020, the Company entered into an incremental commitment and assumption agreement in connection with the Company’s exercise of $75 million of the accordion feature under its credit facility, increasing the size of the credit facility to $775 million.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Adjusted Net Investment Income

On a supplemental basis, the Company is disclosing adjusted net investment income and per share adjusted net investment income, each of which is a financial measure that is calculated and presented on a basis of methodology other than in accordance with U.S. GAAP (“non-GAAP”). Adjusted net investment income represents net investment income, excluding capital gains incentive fees ("Part II incentive fee"). The Company's management uses this non-GAAP financial measure internally to analyze and evaluate financial results and performance and believes that this non-GAAP financial measure is useful to investors as an additional tool to evaluate ongoing results and trends for the Company without giving effect to capital gains incentive fees. The Company’s investment advisory agreement provides that a capital gains-based incentive fee is determined and paid annually with respect to realized capital gains (but not unrealized capital appreciation) to the extent such realized capital gains exceed realized capital losses and unrealized capital depreciation on a cumulative basis. Refer to Note 11 – Related Party Transactions in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for further discussion. The Company believes that adjusted net investment income is a useful performance measure because it reflects the net investment income produced on the Company's investments during a period without giving effect to any changes in the value of such investments and any related capital gains incentive fees between periods. The presentation of adjusted net investment income is not intended to be a substitute for financial results prepared in accordance with GAAP and should not be considered in isolation.

The following table provides a reconciliation of net investment income (the most comparable U.S. GAAP measure) to adjusted net investment income for the periods presented:
