OFS Credit Company Announces Second Quarter 2021 Financial Results

OFS Credit Company, Inc. (NASDAQ: OCCI) (“OFS Credit,” the “Company,” “we,” “us” or “our”), an investment company that primarily invests in collateralized loan obligation (“CLO”) equity and debt securities, today announced its financial results for the fiscal quarter ended April 30, 2021.


  • Net investment income ("NII") of $1.0 million, or $0.25 per common share, for the fiscal quarter ended April 30, 2021.
  • Core net investment income ("Core NII")1 of $2.9 million, or $0.69 per common share, for the fiscal quarter ended April 30, 2021.
  • On May 26, 2021, OFS Credit's board of directors declared a $0.54 per share quarterly distribution, an approximate 2% increase from the prior quarter, for common stockholders for the quarter ending July 31, 2021. The distribution is payable in cash or shares of our common stock on July 30, 2021, to stockholders of record as of June 14, 2021. The total amount of cash distributed to all stockholders will be limited to 20% of the total distribution, excluding any cash paid for fractional shares.
  • As of April 30, 2021, the weighted average GAAP (as defined below) effective yield of our CLO equity investments at current cost was 13.12%.

Management Commentary

“We believe the resiliency of collateralized loan obligations was once again demonstrated in the last year,” said Bilal Rashid, Chief Executive Officer. For the 12-months ended April 30, 2021, shares of OCCI generated a total return based on market value of 105%. Earlier this year, we again increased our distribution; this was the fourth distribution increase since our IPO in late 2018. The quarterly distribution equates to an approximately $2.16 annualized distribution rate of which $1.41, based on our annualized fiscal year-to-date net investment income, represents return of capital.

“We believe the key benefit of the CLO structure is that financing is flexible, enabling our CLO managers to not only be patient during periods of market dislocation, but also reinvest in corporate loans trading at a discount. The rebound in shares of common stock allowed us to raise approximately $23.4 million of common equity at or above net asset value. We believe that the increased scale allows us to further diversify the portfolio, reduce corporate overhead as a percentage of investment income and improve trading liquidity.”

(1) Non-GAAP Financial Measure - Core NII

On a supplemental basis, we disclose Core NII, which is a financial measure calculated and presented on a basis of methodology other than in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America ("GAAP"). Our non-GAAP measures may differ from similar measures used by other companies, even if similar terms are utilized to identify such measures. This measure is not provided as a substitute for GAAP NII, but in addition to it. Core NII represents GAAP NII adjusted for net interest cash distributions received on our CLO equity investments. OFS Capital Management, LLC, our investment adviser, uses this information in its internal analysis of results and believes that this information may be informative in determining the quality of the Company's financial performance, estimating taxable income, identifying trends in its results and providing meaningful period-to-period comparisons.

For GAAP purposes, interest income from investments in the “equity” class securities of CLO vehicles is recognized in accordance with the effective interest method, which is based on estimated cash flows to the expected redemption of the investments, and the investments' current amortized cost. The result is an effective yield for the investments that differs from the actual cash received. The effective yield is recognized as an increase to the amortized cost of the investment, and distributions received are recognized as a reduction in the amortized cost basis. Accordingly, interest income recognized on CLO equity securities in the GAAP statement of operations differs from the cash distributions received by the Company during the period (referred to below as “CLO equity adjustments”).

Our measure of Core NII utilizes the interest account waterfall distributions of the underlying CLOs, determined by the underlying CLOs’ trustees in accordance with the applicable CLO indentures, in lieu of the GAAP measure of effective-yield interest income. Management believes this measure to be informative of the cash component of taxable income expected to be reported to us by the underlying CLOs. However, such taxable income may also include non-cash components—such as the amortization of discounts or premiums on the underlying CLOs’ commercial loans investments and the amortization of deferred debt issuance costs on the underlying CLOs’ debt obligations—as well as realized capital gains or losses resulting from the underlying CLOs' trading activities, which are generally retained in the principal account of (i.e., not distributed by) the underlying CLOs and may be impacted by tax attribute carry-over (e.g., loss carry-forwards) within the CLO vehicles. Moreover, the taxable income we recognize may also be influenced by differences between our fiscal year end and the fiscal year end of any of the CLOs in which we invest, the legal form of the CLO vehicles, and other factors.

For the Company to continue to qualify for tax treatment as a regulated investment company for U.S. federal income tax purposes, we are required, among other things, to distribute annually at least 90% of our investment company taxable income. Thus, management monitors Core NII as an indication of our estimated taxable income for a reporting period. We can offer no assurance that these estimates will reflect the final amount or tax character of our earnings, which cannot be determined until we receive tax reports from the underlying CLOs and prepare our tax returns following the close of our fiscal year. We also note that this non-GAAP measure may not serve as a useful indicator of taxable earnings, particularly during periods of market disruption and volatility, and, as such, our taxable income may differ materially from our Core NII.

Portfolio Composition

The total fair value of our investment portfolio was $100.4 million at April 30, 2021, which was equal to approximately 91% of amortized cost. During the quarter ended April 30, 2021, we invested in eight subordinated notes for $18.3 million, two CLO warehouses for $10.5 million and three mezzanine debt investments for $1.7 million.

Interest Income

Interest income remained stable at $2.77 million for the three months ended April 30, 2021 compared to $2.75 million in the prior quarter.


Total expenses for the three months ended April 30, 2021 increased approximately $26,000 compared to the prior quarter.

Interest expense for the three months ended April 30, 2021 increased approximately $24,000 compared to the prior quarter, primarily due to the issuance of the 6.125% Series C Term Preferred Stock in April 2021.

Management fee expense for the three months ended April 30, 2021 increased approximately $210,000 over the prior quarter due to an increase in the net asset value of the Company, resulting primarily from the issuance of the 6.125% Series C Term Preferred Stock and $23.4 million of common equity.

Incentive fee expense for the three months ended April 30, 2021 decreased approximately $180,000 over the prior quarter, primarily due to a delay in deploying cash raised in the equity offering.

Administrative fee expense for the three months ended April 30, 2021 decreased approximately $91,000 over the prior quarter, primarily due to a decrease in our allocable portion of personnel and software costs of our administrator, OFS Capital Services, LLC.

Net Gain

Our investments appreciated approximately $0.4 million during the three months ended April 30, 2021, primarily due to the increase in loan prices in the broadly syndicated loan market, which loans underlie our CLO investments.
