OHA Investment Corporation (NASDAQ: OHAI) (the “Company”) today announced its financial results for the quarter ended June 30, 2019. Management will discuss the Company's results summarized below on a conference call on Tuesday, August 13, 2019, at 10:00 a.m. (Eastern Time).

Summary results for the quarter ended June 30, 2019:Total investment income:  $1.5 million, or $0.08 per shareNet investment loss:  ($0.5) million, or ($0.02) per shareNet realized and unrealized gains:  $0.9 million, or $0.04 per shareNet asset value:  $37.0 million, or $1.83 per shareNew portfolio investments added during the quarter:  $5.5 million (par value)Fair value of portfolio investments:  $66.4 million

Operating ResultsInvestment income totaled $1.5 million for the second quarter of 2019, decreasing 42% compared to $2.6 million in the corresponding quarter of 2018. The decrease in investment income was primarily attributable to placing our investment in OCI subordinated notes on full non-accrual in October 2018, which was partially offset by an increase of $0.2 million in non-affiliate investment interest income. In the second quarter of 2018, OCI subordinated notes contributed $1.2 million of investment income.

Operating expenses for the second quarter of 2019 were $2.0 million, an increase of $0.1 million, or 4%, compared to operating expenses for the second quarter of 2018. Interest expense and bank fees decreased by 24% to $0.6 million from $0.8 million compared to the same period in the prior year largely due to lower amount outstanding on our Credit Facility, as well as lower amortization of debt issuance costs. Management fees decreased by 21% to $0.3 million from $0.4 million due to lower average asset base subject to the base management fee. During the second quarter of 2019, we also recorded a $78 thousand capital gains incentive fee. Costs related to strategic alternatives review increased by 100.0% to $0.3 million. Professional fees decreased by 24% to $0.2 million from $0.3 million primarily due to lower legal costs. Other general and administrative expenses increased by 17% to $0.4 million from $0.4 million.

The resulting net investment loss was ($501) thousand or ($0.02) per share, for the second quarter of 2019, compared to net investment income of $667 thousand, or $0.03 per share, for the second quarter of 2018.

We recorded net realized and unrealized gains on investments totaling $0.9 million, or $0.04 per share, for the second quarter of 2019, compared to net realized and unrealized gains of $0.3 million, or $0.02 per share, for the second quarter of 2018. In the second quarter of 2019, we realized net capital gains of $0.4 million, or $0.02 per share, which was primarily related to the sale of our remaining investment in TIBCO. Additionally, in the second quarter of 2019, we recorded net unrealized appreciation of $0.4 million, or $0.02 per share

Overall, we experienced a net increase in net assets resulting from operations of $0.4 million, or $0.02 per share, for the second quarter of 2019. After declaring a quarterly distribution during the period of $0.02 per share, our net asset value decreased 1% from $1.84 per share as of March 31, 2019 to $1.83 per share as of June 30, 2019.

Portfolio ActivityThe fair value of our investment portfolio was $66.4 million at June 30, 2019, increasing 4.8% compared to March 31, 2019. In the second quarter of 2019, the Company added investments in four new portfolio companies and an add-on to an existing OHA investment, totaling $5.4 million, and had realizations of $3.1 million. The current weighted average yield of our portfolio based on the cost and fair value of our yielding investments was 10.4% and 10.3%, respectively, as of June 30, 2019.

In April 2019, we purchased $1.4 million of second lien term loan in Aptean, a global leader in enterprise business software. The Aptean second lien term loan was purchased at a 2.0% discount to par, included a 1.0% commitment fee, earns interest payable in cash at a rate of Libor+8.50% and matures in April 2027.

Also in April 2019, we purchased $1.5 million of second lien term loan in Blackboard Transact, an educational technology company. The Blackboard Transact second lien term loan was purchased at a 2.0% discount to par, included a 1.5% commitment fee, earns interest payable in cash at a rate of Libor+8.50% and matures in April 2027.

Also in April 2019, we sold our remaining investment in TIBCO at a price of 106.375% to par, resulting in a realized capital gain of $0.2 million or $0.01 per share and generated a gross internal rate of return of 18.6% and return on investment of 1.38x.

In May 2019, we purchased $0.6 million of second lien term loan in Allied Universal, adding to our $1.25 million position which was previously acquired in March 2018. The $0.6 million loan was purchased at a 0.75% discount to par, earns interest payable in cash at a rate of Libor+8.50% with a 1% floor and matures in July 2023.

In June 2019, we purchased $0.8 million of second lien term loan and $0.2 million of delayed draw term loan in Imperial Dade, a leading independently owned distributor of food service packaging, facilities maintenance supplies and equipment. The Imperial Dade second lien term loan was purchased at a 1% discount to par, included a 1.5% commitment fee, earns interest payable in cash at a rate of Libor+8.0%, and matures in June 2027.

Also in June 2019, we purchased $1.2 million of first lien term loan, $0.4 million of delayed draw term loan, and $0.1 million of revolving loan facility in JS Held, a global consulting firm with expertise in construction, environmental health and safety equipment, forensic architecture and engineering services. The JS Held first lien term loan was purchased at a 1% discount to par, included a 1.5% commitment fee, earns interest payable in cash at a rate of Libor+6.0%, and matures in July 2025.

Liquidity and Capital ResourcesAt June 30, 2019, we had cash and cash equivalents totaling $2.8 million, with $1.2 million due to a broker for unsettled trades, and a total of $2.1 million of unfunded commitments on our investments in two revolving credit facilities and two delayed draw term loans. The total amount outstanding under our Credit Facility at June 30, 2019 was $30.0 million with $4.0 million available to draw. On August 5, 2019, we exercised our option to extend the maturity date on our Credit Facility to March 9, 2020.

Review of Strategic AlternativesOn July 31, 2019, we entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger (the “Merger Agreement”) with Portman Ridge Finance Corporation (“PTMN”), Storm Acquisition Sub Inc. (“Acquisition Sub”), and Sierra Crest Investment Management LLC, the investment adviser to PTMN and an affiliate of BC Partners Advisors L.P. and LibreMax Capital LLC. (“PTMN Advisor”). The transaction is the result of OHAI’s previously announced review of strategic alternatives and has been approved by a unanimous vote of the Special Committee of the Board of Directors of OHAI, the Board of Directors of OHAI (other than directors affiliated with Oak Hill Advisors, L.P., the external adviser to OHAI, who abstained from voting) and the Board of Directors of PTMN.

Under the terms of the proposed transaction, OHAI stockholders will receive a combination of (i) a minimum of $8 million in cash (approximately $0.40 per share) from PTMN (as may be adjusted as described below); (ii) PTMN shares valued at 100% of PTMN’s net asset value per share at the time of closing of the transaction in an aggregate number equal to OHAI’s net asset value at closing minus the $8 million PTMN cash merger consideration (as may be adjusted as described below); and (iii) an additional cash payment from Sierra Crest, the external adviser to PTMN, of $3 million in the aggregate, or approximately $0.15 per share.

If the aggregate number of shares of PTMN stock to be issued in connection with the merger would exceed 19.9% of the issued and outstanding shares of PTMN common stock immediately prior to the transaction closing, then the cash consideration payable by PTMN will be increased to the minimum extent necessary such that the aggregate number of shares of PTMN common stock to be issued in connection with the merger does not exceed such threshold. The exact exchange ratio for the stock component of the merger will be determined by the net asset value of OHAI and PTMN as of the closing, calculated as of 5:00 p.m. New York City time on the day prior to the closing of the transaction. In addition to approval by OHAI’s stockholders, the closing of the merger is subject to customary conditions. The parties currently expect the transaction to be completed in the fourth calendar quarter of 2019.
