OHA Investment Corporation Announces Second Quarter 2016 Results

NEW YORK, Aug. 05, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- OHA Investment Corporation (NASDAQ:OHAI) (the "Company") today announced its financial results for the quarter ended June 30, 2016.  Management will discuss the Company's results summarized below on a conference call on Thursday, August 11, 2016, at 10:00 a.m. Eastern Time.

Summary results for the quarter ended June 30, 2016:
Total investment income:  $4.4 million, or $0.22 per share
Net investment income:  $1.3 million, or $0.06 per share
Net realized and unrealized losses: $1.1 million, or $0.06 per share
Net asset value:  $96.8 million, or $4.80 per share
Investment realizations: $16.0 million
Fair value of portfolio investments:  $148.2 million

Portfolio Activity
The fair value of our investment portfolio was $148.2 million at June 30, 2016, decreasing 9.5% compared to March 31, 2016. During the second quarter of 2016, the Company had realizations totaling $16.0 million and made no new investments.  The concentration of our investment portfolio in the energy sector at June 30, 2016 was 39%.  The current weighted average yield of our portfolio based on the cost and fair value of our yielding investments was 10.2% and 12.8%, respectively, as of June 30, 2016.

During the second quarter, we sold an additional $5.4 million of the Hanson second lien term loan at an average price of $98.5, resulting in realized capital gains of $0.2 million or $0.01 per share. Including the $0.5 million sale in the first quarter, this investment generated a gross internal rate of return of 16.1% and a return on investment of 1.16x.

In April 2016, KOVA International, Inc., or KOVA, repaid its senior subordinated notes in the amount of $9.0 million. We recorded previously unamortized original issue discount of $0.1 million as additional interest income as a result of this repayment. This investment was initiated in February 2013 and generated a gross internal rate of return of 14.8% and a return on investment of 1.45x.

In June 2016, we sold our 800 Membership Units representing 80% of the common equity of Contour Highwall Holdings, LLC, or Contour, back to Contour for $1.4 million, net of transaction costs of $0.1 million.  In connection with this transaction, the senior secured term loan and the unsecured promissory note of Contour were extinguished. The initial investment was made in October 2010 and this transaction resulted in a realized loss of $10.1 million.

Operating Results
Investment income totaled $4.4 million for the second quarter of 2016, decreasing 26.1% compared to $5.9 million in the corresponding quarter of 2015. The decrease was primarily attributable to $0.9 million decrease in investment income related to non-accrual assets, $0.4 million non-recurring fee income and a decrease in the weighted average yield on our investment portfolio from June 30, 2015 to June 30, 2016.

Operating expenses for the second quarter of 2016 were $3.0 million, a decrease of $0.4 million, or 11.1%, compared to operating expenses for the second quarter of 2015. The decrease in operating expenses is related to lower management and incentive fees, professional fees and other general and administrative expenses, partially offset by an increase in interest expense and bank fees.  Interest expense and bank fees increased by 7.9% to $1.0 million from $0.9 million compared to the same period prior year due to increase weighted average debt outstanding of $7.6 million and higher rates.  Management and incentive fees decreased by 10.2% to $0.8 million from $0.9 million due to lower incentive fees incurred partially offset by higher base management fees due to the expiration of the .25% reduction in the base management fee rate on September 30, 2015.  Professional fees decreased by 17.8% to $0.7 million from $0.8 million primarily due to one-time recruiting costs associated with the transition to the new investment advisor.  Other general and administrative expenses decreased by 26.3% to $0.6 million from $0.8 million primarily due to a decrease in employee related expenses. 

The resulting net investment income was $1.3 million or $0.06 per share, for the second quarter of 2016, compared to $2.5 million, or $0.12 per share, for the second quarter of 2015.

We recorded net realized and unrealized losses on investments totaling $1.1 million, or $0.06 per share, during the second quarter of 2016, compared to $3.0 million, or $0.15 per share, during the second quarter of 2015. Total losses recorded in the second quarter of 2016 totaled $5.3 million.  Major components of the losses include the Shoreline Energy, LLC second lien term loan, the Castex Energy 2005 redeemable preferred units and the senior unsecured notes in TIBCO Software, Inc.

Overall, we experienced a net increase in net assets resulting from operations of $0.1 million, or $0.01 per share, for the second quarter of 2016. After declaring a quarterly dividend during the period of $0.06 per share, our net asset value decreased 1%, from $4.85 per share as of March 31, 2016 to $4.80 per share as of June 30, 2016.

Liquidity and Capital Resources
At June 30, 2016, we had cash and cash equivalents totaling $3.8 million.  The amount outstanding under our revolving credit facility at June 30, 2016 was $52.3 million.

On July 28, 2016, we amended our existing Investment Facility to extend its maturity date from July 29, 2016 to September 15, 2016 (the "July Extension"). The July Extension contains substantially identical terms and conditions to the prior extension granted on May 9, 2016, but with the addition of the following: (i) a reduction of the size of the Investment Facility from $54.0 million to $42.3 million, reflecting the outstanding principal balance on July 26, 2016, (ii) an increase in the margin rate applicable to Eurodollar Loans and Base Rate Loans to 5.25%, and (iii) the addition of certain milestones to be met with respect to the negotiation of a new investment facility.  The foregoing description is only a summary of certain of the provisions of the Investment Facility and is qualified in its entirety by the underlying agreements.

Additional Disclosure
Investments are considered to be fully realized when the original investment at the security level has been fully exited.  Internal rate of return, or IRR, is a measure of our discounted cash flows (inflows and outflows). Specifically, IRR is the discount rate at which the net present value of all cash flows is equal to zero. That is, IRR is the discount rate at which the present value of total capital invested in our investments is equal to the present value of all realized returns from the investments. Our IRR calculations are unaudited.  Capital invested, with respect to an investment, represents the aggregate cost of the investment, net of any upfront fees paid at closing. Realized returns, with respect to an investment, represents the total cash received with respect to an investment, including all amortization payments, interest, dividends, prepayment fees, administrative fees, amendment fees, accrued interest, and other fees and proceeds. Gross IRR, with respect to an investment, is calculated based on the dates that we invested capital and dates we received distributions.  Gross IRR reflects historical results relating to our past performance and is not necessarily indicative of our future results. In addition, gross IRR does not reflect the effect of management fees, expenses, incentive fees or taxes borne, or to be borne, by us or our stockholders, and would be lower if it did.
