Investment Income

For the quarter ended March 31, 2024, total investment income increased to $14.2 million from $13.5 million in the prior quarter, primarily due to an increase in dividend income of $2.4 million, partially offset by a decrease in interest income of $1.5 million.

Expenses

For the quarter ended March 31, 2024, total expenses decreased by $0.2 million to $8.6 million compared to the prior quarter, primarily due to a decline in interest expense related to a decrease in our average outstanding debt balance. During the quarter ended March 31, 2024, we redeemed $31.9 million of SBA debentures and reduced the total amount outstanding under our revolving credit facility with BNP Paribas by $12.0 million.

Net Gain (Loss) on Investments

For the quarter ended March 31, 2024, we recognized a net loss on investments of $14.6 million, comprised of net unrealized depreciation of $15.4 million, partially offset by net realized gains of $0.8 million. For the quarter ended March 31, 2024, net unrealized depreciation of $15.4 million was primarily due to declines in a couple of portfolio companies.

LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES

As of March 31, 2024, we had $6.1 million in cash, which includes $2.5 million held by OFSCC-FS, LLC (“OFSCC-FS”), an indirect wholly owned subsidiary. Our use of cash held by OFSCC-FS is restricted by contractual conditions of our credit facility with BNP Paribas, including limitations on the amount of cash OFSCC-FS can distribute to us.

As of March 31, 2024, we had no outstanding balance and an unused commitment of $25.0 million under our senior secured revolving credit facility with Banc of California, as well as an unused commitment of $71.5 million under its revolving credit facility with BNP Paribas, both of which are subject to borrowing base requirements and other covenants. As of March 31, 2024, we had outstanding commitments to fund portfolio company investments totaling $10.9 million under various undrawn revolvers and other credit facilities.
