Oxford Square Capital Corp. Announces Net Asset Value and Selected Financial Results for the Quarter Ended June 30, 2020

Oxford Square Capital Corp. Announces Net Asset Value and Selected Financial Results for the Quarter Ended June 30, 2020

GREENWICH, Conn., July 28, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Oxford Square Capital Corp. (NasdaqGS: OXSQ) (NasdaqGS: OXSQL) (NasdaqGS: OXSQZ) (the “Company,” “we,” “us” or “our”) announced today its financial results and related information for the quarter ended June 30, 2020.

  • As previously announced by the Company, our Board of Directors had declared monthly common stock distributions of $0.035 through September 30, 2020. In light of current economic and market conditions, specifically as a result of the global crisis caused by the spread of the COVID-19 virus, no assurance can be provided as to the level of any common stock distributions that may be declared by the Company’s Board of Directors for the fourth quarter of 2020 (which are currently expected to be declared in September).
  • During the quarter ended June 30, 2020, the U.S. loan market strengthened versus the quarter ended March 31, 2020. U.S. loan prices, as defined by the S&P / LSTA Leveraged Loan Index, increased from 82.85% of par value as of March 31, 2020 to a quarterly high of 91.24% of par value on June 10, 2020, before declining to 89.88% of par value on June 30, 2020. We believe that the COVID-19 pandemic represents an extraordinary circumstance that materially impacts the fair value of the Company’s investments. As a result, the fair value of the Company’s portfolio investments may be negatively impacted after June 30, 2020 by circumstances and events that are not yet known.
  • As of June 30, 2020, net asset value (“NAV”) per share was $3.54, compared with the NAV per share of $3.32 at the prior quarter end. 

    -  For the quarter ended June 30, 2020 we recorded GAAP net investment income of approximately $4.3 million, or $0.09 per share, compared to $6.4 million, or $0.13 per share, for the quarter ended March 31, 2020.

    -  We recorded net realized losses on investments of approximately $2.8 million and net unrealized appreciation of approximately $19.0 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2020, compared to net realized losses on investments of approximately $0.3 million and net unrealized depreciation of approximately $85.4 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2020. The increase in net unrealized appreciation for the three months ended June 30, 2020 was due primarily to unrealized appreciation in our syndicated loan investments, partially offset by the unrealized depreciation in our collateralized loan obligation (“CLO”) equity investments.

    -  In total, we had a net increase in net assets from operations of approximately $20.6 million, or $0.41 per share, for the quarter ended June 30, 2020, compared with a net decrease in net assets from operations of $79.4 million, or $1.62 per share, for the quarter ended March 31, 2020.
  • Total investment income for the quarter ended June 30, 2020 amounted to approximately $8.3 million, which represents a decrease of approximately $2.6 million from the quarter ended March 31, 2020. For the quarter ended June 30, 2020 the components of investment income were as follows:

    -  $4.9 million from our debt investments,

    -  $3.2 million from our CLO equity investments, and

    -  $0.2 million from all other sources.
  • Our total expenses for the quarter ended June 30, 2020 were approximately $3.9 million, which represents a decrease of approximately $0.5 million from the quarter ended March 31, 2020.
  • During the second quarter of 2020, we made investments of approximately $21.3 million and received, or were entitled to receive, proceeds of approximately $9.5 million from sales of investments, and $16.7 million from repayments and amortization payments on our debt investments.
  • As of June 30, 2020, the following metrics applied (note that none of these values represents a total return to shareholders):

    -  The weighted average yield of our debt investments was 8.1% at current cost, compared with 8.8% as of March 31, 2020.
    -  The weighted average effective yield of our CLO equity investments at current cost was 7.1%, compared with 9.7% as of March 31, 2020.
    -  The weighted average cash distribution yield of our cash income producing CLO equity investments at current cost was 11.6%, compared with 14.4% as of March 31, 2020.
  • Our weighted average credit rating was 2.3 based on total fair value and 2.5 based on total principal value as of June 30, 2020, compared with 2.2 based on total fair value and 2.5 based on total principal value as of March 31, 2020.
  • As of June 30, 2020, we had two debt investments on non-accrual status, with a combined fair value of $5.4 million. Also, as of June 30, 2020, our preferred equity investments in one of our portfolio companies were on non-accrual status, with a combined fair value of $0.6 million.

We will host a conference call to discuss our second quarter results today, Tuesday, July 28, 2020 at 9:00 AM ET. Please call 1-888-339-0740 to participate. A recording of the conference call will be available to replay for approximately 30 days following the call. The replay number is 1-877-344-7529, and the replay passcode is 10146310.

____________

(1) Represents per share net investment income for the period, based upon weighted average shares outstanding.
(2) Net realized and unrealized gains/(losses) include rounding adjustments to reconcile change in net asset value per share.
(3) Management monitors available taxable earnings, including net investment income and realized capital gains, to determine if a tax return of capital may occur for the year. To the extent the Company’s taxable earnings fall below the total amount of the Company’s distributions for that fiscal year, a portion of those distributions may be deemed a tax return of capital to the Company’s stockholders. The ultimate tax character of the Company’s earnings cannot be determined until tax returns are prepared after the end of the fiscal year.
(4) Total return based on market value equals the increase or decrease of ending market value over beginning market value, plus distributions, divided by the beginning market value, assuming distribution reinvestment prices obtained under the Company’s distribution reinvestment plan, excluding any discounts. Total return is not annualized.
(5) Total return based on net asset value equals the increase or decrease of ending net asset value over beginning net asset value, plus distributions, divided by the beginning net asset value. Total return is not annualized.
(6) Annualized.
(7) Portfolio turnover rate is calculated using the lesser of the year-to-date cash investment sales and debt repayments or year-to-date cash investment purchases over the average of the total investments at fair value.
(8) The following table provides supplemental performance ratios (annualized) measured for the three and six months ended June 30, 2020 and 2019:
