OHA Investment Corporation Announces Second Quarter 2017 Results

NEW YORK, Aug. 10, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- OHA Investment Corporation (NASDAQ:OHAI) (the "Company") today announced its financial results for the quarter ended June 30, 2017. Management will discuss the Company's results summarized below on a conference call on Friday, August 11, 2017, at 10:00 a.m. (Eastern Time).

Summary results for the quarter ended June 30, 2017:
Total investment income:  $2.5 million, or $0.12 per share
Net investment income:  $0.1 million, or $0.01 per share
Net realized and unrealized losses:  $5.0 million, or $0.25 per share
Net asset value:  $55.7 million, or $2.76 per share
New portfolio investments during the quarter:  $1.4 million
Fair value of portfolio investments:  $84.5 million
Investment in Castex Energy 2005, LP written down by $4.7 million, or $0.23 per share

Portfolio Activity
The fair value of our investment portfolio was $84.5 million at June 30, 2017, decreasing 4.7% compared to March 31, 2017. During the second quarter of 2017, the Company had realizations totaling $1.4 million and made one new investment in the amount of $1.4 million. The concentration of our investment portfolio in the energy sector at June 30, 2017 was 18%. The current weighted average yield of our portfolio based on the cost and fair value of our yielding investments was 12.6% and 13.0%, respectively, as of June 30, 2017.

During the second quarter, we added $1.4 million of second lien term loan to PAE Holding Corporation, or PAE, adding to our $5.5 million position that was previously acquired in November 2016.  The $1.4 million PAE loan was purchased at a 1% discount and earns interest payable in cash at a rate of 10.50% per annum (LIBOR+9.50% with a 1% floor) and matures in October 2023.

In April 2017, we received $0.9 million remittance from our investment in Gramercy Park CLO Ltd., which we applied to our cost basis.

In May 2017, Talos Production, LLC repaid a portion of its senior unsecured notes in the amount of $0.5 million at par.

Operating Results
Investment income totaled $2.5 million for the second quarter of 2017, decreasing 43.4% compared to $4.4 million in the corresponding quarter of 2016. The decrease was primarily attributable to a $1.5 million decrease in investment income related to non-accruals assets and a decrease in average portfolio balance.

Operating expenses for the second quarter of 2017 were $2.3 million, a decrease of $0.7 million, or 22.9%, compared to operating expenses for the second quarter of 2016. The decrease in operating expenses is related to lower base management and incentive fees, professional fees and other general and administrative expenses.

The resulting net investment income was $0.1 million or $0.01 per share, for the second quarter of 2017, compared to $1.3 million, or $0.06 per share, for the second quarter of 2016.

We recorded net realized and unrealized losses on investments totaling $5.0 million, or $0.25 per share, during the second quarter of 2017, compared to $1.1 million, or $0.06 per share, during the second quarter of 2016. Total losses recorded in the second quarter of 2017 was driven primarily by the $4.7 million write-down in Castex, a legacy energy portfolio investment.

Overall, we experienced a net decrease in net assets resulting from operations of $4.9 million, or $0.24 per share, for the second quarter of 2017. After declaring a quarterly dividend during the period of $0.02 per share, our net asset value decreased 8.6%, from $3.02 per share as of March 31, 2017 to $2.76 per share as of June 30, 2017.

Liquidity and Capital Resources
At June 30, 2017, we had cash and cash equivalents totaling $12.0 million. The total amount outstanding under our credit facility at June 30, 2017 was $40.5 million with $16.0 million available to draw.
