(1)Other than Unitek Global Services, Inc., of which we are deemed to be an “affiliate,” we do not “control” and are not an “affiliate” of any of our portfolio companies, each as defined in the Investment Company Act of 1940 (the “1940 Act”). In general, under the 1940 Act, we would be presumed to “control” a portfolio company if we owned 25% or more of its voting securities and would be an “affiliate” of a portfolio company if we owned 5% or more of its voting securities.
(2)Fair value is determined in good faith by the Board of Directors of the Company.
(3)Portfolio includes $6,589,535 of principal amount of debt investments which contain a PIK provision at March 31, 2018.
(4)Notes bear interest at variable rates.
(5)Cost value reflects accretion of original issue discount or market discount.
(6)Cost value reflects repayment of principal.
(7)Non-income producing at the relevant period end.
(8)Aggregate gross unrealized appreciation for federal income tax purposes is $18,948,302; aggregate gross unrealized depreciation for federal income tax purposes is $71,680,596. Net unrealized depreciation is $52,732,294 based upon a tax cost basis of $466,978,331.
(9)Cost value reflects accretion of effective yield less any cash distributions received or entitled to be received from CLO equity investments.
(10)The CLO equity investment was optionally redeemed. Refer to “Note 3. Summary of Significant Accounting Policies.”
(11)Indicates assets that the Company believes do not represent “qualifying assets” under Section 55(a) of the 1940 Act. Qualifying assets must represent at least 70% of the Company’s total assets at the time of acquisition of any additional non-qualifying assets. As of March 31, 2018, the Company held qualifying assets that represented 64.9% of its total assets.
(12)Investment not domiciled in the United States.

(16)The principal balance outstanding for this debt investment, in whole or in part, is indexed to 30-day LIBOR.
(17)The CLO subordinated notes and income notes are considered equity positions in the CLO funds. Equity investments are entitled to recurring distributions which are generally equal to the remaining cash flow of the payments made by the underlying fund’s securities less contractual payments to debt holders and fund expenses. The estimated yield indicated is based upon a current projection of the amount and timing of these recurring distributions and the estimated amount of repayment of principal upon expected redemption. Such projections are periodically reviewed and adjusted, and the estimated yield may not ultimately be realized.
(18)Represents the earnout payments related to the sale of Algorithmic Implementations, Inc. (d/b/a “Ai Squared”).
(19)Represents cash equivalents held in money market accounts as of March 31, 2018.

(3)Portfolio includes $6,544,207 of principal amount of debt investments which contain a PIK provision at December 31, 2017.
(4)Notes bear interest at variable rates.
(5)Cost value reflects accretion of original issue discount or market discount.
(6)Cost value reflects repayment of principal.
(7)Non-income producing at the relevant period end.
(8)Aggregate gross unrealized appreciation for federal income tax purposes is $19,352,263; aggregate gross unrealized depreciation for federal income tax purposes is $55,593,978. Net unrealized depreciation is $36,247,715 based upon a tax cost basis of $454,683,941.
(9)Cost value reflects accretion of effective yield less any cash distributions received or entitled to be received from CLO equity investments.
(10)The CLO equity investment was optionally redeemed. Refer to “Note 3. Summary of Significant Accounting Policies.”
(11)Indicates assets that the Company believes do not represent “qualifying assets” under Section 55(a) of the 1940 Act Qualifying assets must represent at least 70% of the Company’s total assets at the time of acquisition of any additional non-qualifying assets.

Equity investments are entitled to recurring distributions which are generally equal to the remaining cash flow of the payments made by the underlying fund’s securities less contractual payments to debt holders and fund expenses. The estimated yield indicated is based upon a current projection of the amount and timing of these recurring distributions and the estimated amount of repayment of principal upon expected redemption. Such projections are periodically reviewed and adjusted, and the estimated yield may not ultimately be realized.

NOTE 2. ORGANIZATION

 

Effective March 19, 2018, TICC Capital Corp. changed its name to Oxford Square Capital Corp.

The Company has elected to be regulated as a business development company (“BDC”) under the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended (the “1940 Act”). In addition, the Company has elected to be treated for tax purposes as a regulated investment company (“RIC”), under Subchapter M of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the “Code”).

TICC CLO 2012-1 was formed for the purpose of enabling the Company to obtain debt financing and is operated solely for the investment activities of the Company, and the Company had substantial equity at risk. TICC CLO 2012-1 ceased operations on August 25, 2017. During the quarter ended December 31, 2017, the Company, as collateral manager of TICC CLO 2012-1, dissolved TICC CLO 2012-1 pursuant to Delaware law by filing a certificate of cancellation with the Secretary of State in Delaware. Refer to “Note 6. Borrowings” for additional information on the Company’s borrowings.

 

NOTE 3. SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

 

BASIS OF PRESENTATION

 

The accompanying consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company and its wholly-owned subsidiary, TICC CLO 2012-1 for the periods during which it was held. All inter-company accounts and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation.

 

The Company follows the accounting and reporting guidance in Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) Topic 946, Financial Services — Investment Companies. Certain prior period figures have been reclassified from those originally published in quarterly and annual reports to conform to the current period presentation for comparative purposes.

NOTE 3. SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES  – (continued)

 

In the normal course of business, the Company may enter into contracts that contain a variety of representations and provide indemnifications. The Company’s maximum exposure under these arrangements is unknown as this would involve future claims that may be made against the Company that have not yet occurred. However, based upon experience, the Company expects the risk of loss to be remote.

 

USE OF ESTIMATES

 

The consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with GAAP, which requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the amounts reported in the consolidated financial statements and accompanying notes. Actual results may differ from those estimates, and these differences could be material.

 

CONSOLIDATION

 

As provided under Regulation S-X and ASC Topic 946-810, Consolidation, the Company will generally not consolidate its investment in a company other than a wholly-owned investment company or a controlled operating company whose business consists of providing services to the Company for the periods during which it was held. TICC CLO 2012-1 would have been considered an investment company but for the exceptions under Sections 3(c)(1) and 3(c)(7) under the 1940 Act, and was established solely for the purpose of allowing the Company to borrow funds for the purpose of making investments. The Company owned all of the equity in this entity and controlled the decision making power that drove its economic performance. Accordingly, the Company consolidated TICC CLO 2012-1 in its financial statements, for the periods which it was held, and follows the accounting and reporting guidance in ASC 946-810.

 

CASH, CASH EQUIVALENTS AND RESTRICTED CASH

 

Cash and cash equivalents consist of demand deposits and cash held in a money market fund which contain investments with original maturities of three months or less. The Company places its cash and cash equivalents with financial institutions and, at times, cash held in bank accounts may exceed the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation insured limit. Cash equivalents are classified as Level 1 assets and are included on the Company’s Consolidated Schedule of Investments. Cash equivalents are carried at cost or amortized cost which approximates fair value.

 

Restricted cash represents the cash held by the trustee of the 2012 Securitization Issuer. The amounts were held by the trustee for payment of interest expense and operating expenses of the entity, principal repayments on borrowings, or new investments, based upon the terms of the respective indenture, and were not available for general corporate purposes. There was no restricted cash as of March 31, 2018 and December 31, 2017 as TICC CLO 2012-1 effectively ceased operations on August 25, 2017.

 

INVESTMENT VALUATION

 

The Company measures its investment portfolio at fair value in accordance with the provisions of ASC 820, Fair Value Measurement and Disclosure. Estimates made in the preparation of the Company’s consolidated financial statements include the valuation of investments and the related amounts of unrealized appreciation and depreciation of investments recorded. The Company believes that there is no single definitive method for determining fair value in good faith. As a result, determining fair value requires that judgment be applied to the specific facts and circumstances of each portfolio investment while employing a consistently applied valuation process for the types of investments the Company makes.

NOTE 3. SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES  – (continued)

 

ASC 820-10 clarified the definition of fair value and requires companies to expand their disclosure about the use of fair value to measure assets and liabilities in interim and annual periods subsequent to initial recognition. ASC 820-10 defines fair value as the price that would be received to sell an asset or paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date. ASC 820-10 also establishes a three-tier fair value hierarchy, which prioritizes the inputs used in measuring fair value. These tiers include: Level 1, defined as observable inputs such as quoted prices in active markets; Level 2, which includes inputs such as quoted prices for similar securities in active markets and quoted prices for identical securities in markets that are not active; and Level 3, defined as unobservable inputs for which little or no market data exists, therefore requiring an entity to develop its own assumptions. The Company considers the attributes of current market conditions on an on-going basis and has determined that due to the general illiquidity of the market for its investment portfolio, whereby little or no market data exists, all of OXSQ’s investments are based upon “Level 3” inputs as of March 31, 2018.

 

The Board determines the value of its investment portfolio each quarter. In connection with that determination, members of Oxford Square Management’s portfolio management team prepare a quarterly analysis of each portfolio investment using the most recent portfolio company financial statements, forecasts and other relevant financial and operational information. Since March 2004, the Company has engaged third-party valuation firms to provide assistance in valuing certain of its syndicated loans and bilateral investments, including related equity investments, although the Board ultimately determines the appropriate valuation of each such investment. Changes in fair value, as described above, are recorded in the Consolidated Statements of Operations as Net Change in Unrealized Appreciation/Depreciation on Investments.

 

Syndicated Loans

 

In accordance with ASC 820-10, the Company’s valuation procedures specifically provide for the review of indicative quotes supplied by the large agent banks that make a market for each security. However, the marketplace from which the Company obtains indicative bid quotes for purposes of determining the fair value of its syndicated loan investments has shown attributes of illiquidity as described by ASC 820-10. During such periods of illiquidity, when the Company believes that the non-binding indicative bids received from agent banks for certain syndicated investments that we own may not be determinative of their fair value or when no market indicative quote is available, the Company may engage third-party valuation firms to provide assistance in valuing certain syndicated investments that OXSQ owns. In addition, Oxford Square Management prepares an analysis of each syndicated loan, including a financial summary, covenant compliance review, recent trading activity in the security, if known, and other business developments related to the portfolio company. All available information, including non-binding indicative bids which may not be determinative of fair value, is presented to the Valuation Committee to consider in its determination of fair value. In some instances, there may be limited trading activity in a security even though the market for the security is considered not active. In such cases the Valuation Committee will consider the number of trades, the size and timing of each trade, and other circumstances around such trades, to the extent such information is available, in its determination of fair value. The Valuation Committee will evaluate the impact of such additional information, and factor it into its consideration of the fair value that is indicated by the analysis provided by third-party valuation firms, if any.

NOTE 3. SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES  – (continued)

 

Collateralized Loan Obligations — Debt and Equity

 

The Company has acquired a number of debt and equity positions in collateralized loan obligation (“CLO”) investment vehicles and CLO warehouse investments. These investments are special purpose financing vehicles. In valuing such investments, the Company considers the indicative prices provided by a recognized industry pricing service as a primary source, and the implied yield of such prices, supplemented by actual trades executed in the market at or around period-end, as well as the indicative prices provided by the broker who arranges transactions in such investment vehicles. The Company also considers those instances in which the record date for an equity distribution payment falls on the last day of the period, and the likelihood that a prospective purchaser would require a downward adjustment to the indicative price representing substantially all of the pending distribution. Additional factors include any available information on other relevant transactions including firm bids and offers in the market and information resulting from bids-wanted-in-competition. In addition, the Company considers the operating metrics of the specific investment vehicle, including compliance with collateralization tests, defaulted and restructured securities, and payment defaults, if any. Oxford Square Management or the Valuation Committee may request an additional analysis by a third-party firm to assist in the valuation process of CLO investment vehicles. All information is presented to the Board for its determination of fair value of these investments.

 

Bilateral Investments (Including Equity)

 

Bilateral investments for which market quotations are readily available are valued by an independent pricing agent or market maker. If such market quotations are not readily available, under the valuation procedures approved by the Board, upon the recommendation of the Valuation Committee, a third-party valuation firm will prepare valuations for each of OXSQ’s bilateral investments that, when combined with all other investments in the same portfolio company, (i) have a value as of the previous quarter of greater than or equal to 2.5% of its total assets as of the previous quarter, and (ii) have a value as of the current quarter of greater than or equal to 2.5% of its total assets as of the previous quarter, after taking into account any repayment of principal during the current quarter. In addition, in those instances where a third-party valuation is prepared for a portfolio investment which meets the parameters noted in (i) and (ii) above, the frequency of those third-party valuations is based upon the grade assigned to each such security under its credit grading system as follows: Grade 1, at least annually; Grade 2, at least semi-annually; Grades 3, 4, and 5, at least quarterly. Bilateral investments which do not meet the parameters in (i) and (ii) above are not required to have a third-party valuation and, in those instances, a valuation analysis will be prepared by Oxford Square Management. Oxford Square Management also retains the authority to seek, on the Company’s behalf, additional third-party valuations with respect to the Company’s bilateral portfolio securities, syndicated loan investments, and CLO investment vehicles. The Board retains ultimate authority as to the third-party review cycle as well as the appropriate valuation of each investment.

 

INVESTMENT INCOME

 

Interest Income

 

Interest income is recorded on an accrual basis using the contractual rate applicable to each debt investment and includes the accretion of market discounts and/or original issue discount (“OID”) and amortization of market premiums. Discounts from and premiums to par value on securities purchased are accreted/amortized into interest income over the life of the respective security using the effective yield method. The amortized cost of investments represents the original cost adjusted for the accretion of discounts and amortization of premiums, if any.

 

Generally, when interest and/or principal payments on a loan become past due, or if the Company otherwise does not expect the borrower to be able to service its debt and other obligations, the Company will place the loan on non-accrual status and will cease recognizing interest income on that loan for financial reporting purposes until all principal and interest have been brought current through payment or due to restructuring such that the interest income is deemed to be collectible. The Company generally restores non-accrual loans to accrual status when past due principal and interest is paid and, in the Company’s judgment, is likely to remain current. As of March 31, 2018 and as of December 31, 2017, the Company had no investments that were on non-accrual status.

NOTE 3. SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES  – (continued)

 

Interest income also includes a payment-in-kind (“PIK”) provision on certain investments in the Company’s portfolio. Refer to the section below, “Payment-In-Kind,” for a description of the PIK provision and its impact on interest income.

 

Payment-In-Kind

 

The Company has debt investments in its portfolio which contain a contractual PIK provision. Certain PIK investments offer issuers the option at each payment date of making payments in cash or additional securities. PIK interest computed at the contractual rate is accrued into income and added to the principal balance on the capitalization date. Upon capitalization, the PIK component is subject to the fair value estimates associated with their related investments. At the point the Company believes PIK is not fully expected to be realized, the PIK investment will be placed on non-accrual status. PIK investments on non-accrual status are restored to accrual status once it becomes probable that PIK will be realized.

 

Income from Securitization Vehicles and Investments

 

Income from investments in the equity class securities of CLO vehicles (typically income notes or subordinated notes) is recorded using the effective interest method in accordance with the provisions of ASC 325-40, based upon an effective yield to the expected redemption utilizing estimated cash flows, including those CLO equity investments that have not made their inaugural distribution for the relevant period end. The Company monitors the expected residual payments, and effective yield is determined and updated periodically, as needed. Accordingly, investment income recognized on CLO equity securities in the GAAP statement of operations differs from both the tax-basis investment income and from the cash distributions actually received by the Company during the period.

 

Other Income

 

Other income includes prepayment, amendment, and other fees earned by the Company’s loan investments, distributions from fee letters and success fees associated with portfolio investments. Distributions from fee letters are an enhancement to the return on a CLO equity investment and are based upon a percentage of the collateral manager’s fees, and are recorded as other income when earned. The Company may also earn success fees associated with its investments in certain securitization vehicles or CLO warehouse facilities, which are contingent upon a repayment of the warehouse by a permanent CLO securitization structure; such fees are earned and recognized when the repayment is completed.

 

DEFERRED DEBT ISSUANCE COSTS

 

Deferred debt issuance costs consist of fees and expenses incurred in connection with the closing or amending of credit facilities and debt offerings, and are capitalized at the time of payment. These costs are amortized using the straight line method over the terms of the respective credit facilities and debt securities. This amortization expense is included in interest expense in the Company’s consolidated financial statements. Upon early termination of debt, or a credit facility, the remaining balance of unamortized fees related to such debt is accelerated into realized losses on extinguishment of debt on the Company’s statement of operations. Deferred offering costs are presented on the balance sheet as a direct deduction from the related debt liability.

 

EQUITY OFFERING COSTS

 

Equity offering costs consist of fees and expenses incurred in connection with the registration and public offer and sale of the Company’s common stock, including legal, accounting and printing fees. These costs are deferred at the time of incurrence and are subsequently charged as a reduction to capital when the offering takes place or as shares are issued. Deferred costs are periodically reviewed and expensed if the related registration is no longer active.

SHARE REPURCHASES

 

From time to time, the Board may authorize a share repurchase program under which shares are purchased in open market transactions. Since the Company is incorporated in the State of Maryland, state law requires share repurchases to be accounted for as a share retirement. The cost of repurchased shares is charged against capital on the settlement date.

 

SECURITIES TRANSACTIONS

 

Securities transactions are recorded on trade date. Realized gains and losses on investments sold are recorded on the basis of specific identification. Distributions received on CLO equity investments which were optionally redeemed for which the cost basis has been reduced to zero are recorded as realized gains. An optional redemption feature of a CLO allows a majority of the holders of the equity securities issued by the CLO issuer, after the end of a specified non-call period, to cause the redemption of the secured notes issued by the CLO with proceeds of either the liquidation of the CLO’s assets or through a refinancing with new debt. The optional redemption is effectively a voluntary prepayment of the secured debt issued by the CLO prior to the stated maturity of such debt.

 

U.S. FEDERAL INCOME TAXES

 

The Company intends to operate so as to qualify to be taxed as a RIC under Subchapter M of the Code and, as such, to not be subject to U.S. federal income tax on the portion of its taxable income and gains distributed to stockholders. To qualify for RIC tax treatment, the Company is required to distribute at least 90% of its investment company taxable income annually, meet diversification requirements quarterly and file Form 1120-RIC, as defined by the Code.

 

Because U.S. federal income tax regulations differ from GAAP, distributions in accordance with tax regulations may differ from net investment income and realized gains recognized for financial reporting purposes. Differences may be permanent or temporary. Permanent differences are reclassified among capital accounts in the consolidated financial statements to reflect their tax character. Temporary differences arise when certain items of income, expense, gain or loss are recognized at some time in the future. Differences in classification may also result from the treatment of short-term gains as ordinary income for tax purposes.

 

The Company recognizes the tax benefits of uncertain tax positions only when the position is more likely than not to be sustained, assuming examination by tax authorities. Through March 31, 2018, management has analyzed the Company’s tax positions and concluded that no liability for unrecognized tax benefits should be recorded related to uncertain tax positions expected to be taken in the Company’s 2018 tax returns. The Company identifies its major tax jurisdictions as U.S Federal and Connecticut State; however, the Company is not aware of any tax position for which it is reasonably possible that the total amounts of unrecognized tax benefits will change materially in the next 12 months.

 

For tax purposes, the cost basis of the portfolio investments at March 31, 2018 and December 31, 2017, was approximately $466,978,331 and $454,683,941, respectively.

RECENT ACCOUNTING PRONOUNCEMENTS

 

In August 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-15, Classification of Certain Cash Receipts and Cash Payments (a Consensus of the Emerging Issues Task Force) (“ASU 2016-15”), which is intended to reduce diversity in practice in how certain transactions are classified in the statement of cash flows. ASU 2016-15 is effective for annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2017, including interim periods within those fiscal years, with early adoption permitted. Management adopted the new guidance as of January 1, 2018 and the adoption did not have a material impact on the Company’s consolidated financial statements.

 

In November 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-18, Statement of Cash Flows (Topic 230): Restricted Cash (a Consensus of the Emerging Issues Task Force) (“ASU 2016-18”), which requires that the statement of cash flows explain the change during the period in the total of cash, cash equivalents, and amounts generally described as restricted cash or restricted cash equivalents. ASU 2016-18 is effective for annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2017, including interim periods within those fiscal years, with early adoption permitted. Management adopted the new guidance as of January 1, 2018 and upon adoption of the standard, restricted cash was included as part of beginning and ending cash and cash equivalents on the consolidated statement of cash flows for the three months ended March 31, 2018 and 2017. The Company did not hold any restricted cash as of March 31, 2018.

Significant Unobservable Inputs for Level 3 Investments

 

The following tables provide quantitative information about the Company’s Level 3 fair value measurements as of March 31, 2018 and December 31, 2017, respectively. The Company’s valuation policy, as described above, establishes parameters for the sources and types of valuation analysis, as well as the methodologies and inputs that the Company uses in determining fair value. If the Valuation Committee or Oxford Square Management determines that additional techniques, sources or inputs are appropriate or necessary in a given situation, such additional work will be undertaken. The tables, therefore, are not all-inclusive, but provide information on the significant Level 3 inputs that are pertinent to the Company’s fair value measurements. The weighted average calculations in the table below are based on principal balances for all debt related calculations and CLO equity.

(1)The Company generally uses prices provided by an independent pricing service, or broker or agent bank non-binding indicative bid prices (“NBIB”), on or near the valuation date as the primary basis for the fair value determinations for syndicated notes, and CLO debt and equity investments, which may be adjusted for pending equity distributions as of valuation date. These bid prices are non-binding, and may not be determinative of fair value. Each bid price is evaluated by the Valuation Committee in conjunction with additional information compiled by Oxford Square Management, including financial performance, recent business developments, and, in the case of CLO debt and equity investments, performance and covenant compliance information as provided by the independent trustee.
(2)EBITDA, or earnings before interest expense, taxes, depreciation and amortization, is an unobservable input which is generally based on most recently available twelve month financial statements provided by the portfolio company. Market multiples, also an unobservable input, represent an estimation of where market participants might value an enterprise based upon information available for comparable companies in the market.
(3)Discount rate represents the rate at which future cash flows are discounted to calculate a present value, reflecting market assumptions for risk.
(4)The calculation of weighted average for a range of values, for multiple investments within a given asset category, is not considered to provide a meaningful representation (“ncm”).

NOTE 4. FAIR VALUE  – (continued)

 

(5) The Company will calculate the fair value of certain CLO equity investments based upon the net present value of expected contractual payment streams discounted using estimated market yields for the equity tranche of the respective CLO vehicle. The Company will also consider those investments in which the record date for an equity distribution payment falls on the last day of the period, and the likelihood that a prospective purchaser would require an adjustment to the transaction price representing substantially all of the pending distribution.

(6) Prices provided by independent pricing services are evaluated in conjunction with actual trades and payoffs and, in certain cases, the value represented by actual trades or payoffs may be more representative of fair value as determined by the Valuation Committee.

(7) For the corporate debt investments and equity investments, third-party valuation firms evaluate the financial and operational information of the portfolio companies that we provide to them, as well as independent market and industry information that they consider appropriate in forming an opinion as to the fair value of the Company’s securities. In those instances where the carrying value and/or internal credit rating of the investment does not require the use of a third-party valuation firm, a valuation is prepared by Oxford Square Management, which may include liquidation analysis or which may utilize a subsequent transaction to provide an indication of fair value.

(8) Weighted averages are calculated based on fair value of investments.

(1)The Company generally uses prices provided by an independent pricing service, or broker or agent bank non-binding indicative bid prices (“NBIB”), on or near the valuation date as the primary basis for the fair value determinations for syndicated notes, and CLO debt and equity investments, which may be adjusted for pending equity distributions as of valuation date. These bid prices are non-binding, and may not be determinative of fair value. Each bid price is evaluated by the Valuation Committee in conjunction with additional information compiled by Oxford Square Management, including financial performance, recent business developments, and, in the case of CLO debt and equity investments, performance and covenant compliance information as provided by the independent trustee.
(2)EBITDA, or earnings before interest expense, taxes, depreciation and amortization, is an unobservable input which is generally based on most recently available twelve month financial statements provided by the portfolio company. Market multiples, also an unobservable input, represent an estimation of where market participants might value an enterprise based upon information available for comparable companies in the market.
(3)Discount rate represents the rate at which future cash flows are discounted to calculate a present value, reflecting market assumptions for risk.
(4)The calculation of weighted average for a range of values, for multiple investments within a given asset category, is not considered to provide a meaningful representation (“ncm”).

NOTE 4. FAIR VALUE  – (continued)

 

(5)The Company will calculate the fair value of certain CLO equity investments based upon the net present value of expected contractual payment streams discounted using estimated market yields for the equity tranche of the respective CLO vehicle. The Company will also consider those investments in which the record date for an equity distribution payment falls on the last day of the period, and the likelihood that a prospective purchaser would require an adjustment to the transaction price representing substantially all of the pending distribution.
(6)Prices provided by independent pricing services are evaluated in conjunction with actual trades and payoffs and, in certain cases, the value represented by actual trades or payoffs may be more representative of fair value as determined by the Valuation Committee.
(7)For the corporate debt investments and equity investments, third-party valuation firms evaluate the financial and operational information of the portfolio companies that we provide to them, as well as independent market and industry information that they consider appropriate in forming an opinion as to the fair value of the Company’s securities. In those instances where the carrying value and/or internal credit rating of the investment does not require the use of a third-party valuation firm, a valuation is prepared by Oxford Square Management, which may include liquidation analysis or which may utilize a subsequent transaction to provide an indication of fair value.
(8)Weighted averages are calculated based on fair value of investments.

NOTE 6. BORROWINGS

 

In accordance with the 1940 Act, with certain limited exceptions, the Company is only allowed to borrow amounts such that its asset coverage, as defined in the 1940 Act, is at least 200%, immediately after such borrowing. As of March 31, 2018, the Company’s asset coverage for borrowed amounts was 693.2%.

 

On March 23, 2018, the Small Business Credit Availability Act (the “SBCAA”) was signed into law, which included various changes to regulations under the federal securities laws that impact BDCs. The SBCAA included changes to the 1940 Act to allow BDCs to decrease their asset coverage requirement to 150% from 200% under certain circumstances. On April 6, 2018, the Board, including a “required majority” (as such term is defined in Section 57(o) of the 1940 Act) of the Board, approved the modified asset coverage requirements set forth in Section 61(a)(2) of the 1940 Act, as amended by the SBCAA. As a result, the Company’s asset coverage requirements for senior securities will be changed from 200% to 150%, effective as of April 6, 2019.

NOTE 6. BORROWINGS  – (continued)

 

Notes Payable — Convertible Notes

 

On September 26, 2012, the Company issued $105.0 million aggregate principal amount of convertible notes (the “Convertible Notes”), and an additional $10.0 million aggregate principal amount of the Convertible Notes was issued on October 22, 2012 pursuant to the exercise of the initial purchasers’ option to purchase additional Convertible Notes. The Convertible Notes bear interest at a rate of 7.50% per year, payable semi-annually in arrears on May 1 and November 1 of each year, commencing on May 1, 2013. The Convertible Notes are convertible into shares of OXSQ’s common stock based on an initial conversion rate of 87.2448 shares of its common stock per $1,000 principal amount of the Convertible Notes, which is equivalent to an initial conversion price of approximately $11.46 per share of common stock. The conversion price for the Convertible Notes will be reduced for quarterly cash distributions paid to common shares to the extent that the quarterly distribution exceeds $0.29 cents per share, subject to adjustment. Deferred debt issuance costs represent fees and other direct incremental costs incurred in connection with the Convertible Notes. On December 2, 2016 and December 16, 2016, the Company repurchased $12.0 million and approximately $8.5 million of the Convertible Notes, respectively. On November 1, 2017, the Convertible Notes matured and were repaid in full (approximately $94.5 million) in accordance with their terms.

 

In connection with the repurchase of approximately $20.5 million of the Convertible Notes in December 2016, the Company recognized a net extinguishment loss of approximately $815,000, which consisted of approximately $716,000 from repurchasing the Convertible Notes at a premium to par and approximately $99,000 in previously unamortized deferred debt issuance costs. These costs are recorded within realized losses on extinguishment of debt in the statement of operations. The realized loss on extinguishment of debt incurred in prior periods was reclassified from interest expense in the statement of operations to conform with the current period presentation for comparative purposes. The effective annualized interest rate for the three months ended March 31, 2017 was 8.14%. There was no cash paid for interest for the three months ended March 31, 2017.

 

Notes Payable — TICC CLO 2012-1 LLC

 

On August 23, 2012, the Company completed a $160 million debt securitization financing transaction, consisting of $120 million in secured notes and $40.0 million of subordinated notes (the “2012 Subordinated Notes”). On February 25, 2013 and May 28, 2013, TICC CLO 2012-1 issued additional secured notes totaling an aggregate of $120 million and 2012 Subordinated Notes totaling an aggregate of $40.0 million, which 2012 Subordinated Notes were purchased by the Company under the “accordion” feature of the debt securitization which allowed, under certain circumstances and subject to the satisfaction of certain conditions, for an increase in the amount of secured and subordinated notes. It is not necessary that the Company own all or any of the notes permitted by this feature, which may affect the accounting treatment of the debt securitization financing transaction. On August 25, 2016, November 25, 2016, February 27, 2017, and May 25, 2017, the Securitization Issuer repaid approximately $36.0 million, approximately $74.7 million, approximately $24.5 million, and approximately $31.4 million of the class A-1 notes, respectively. On August 25, 2017, the Securitization Issuer repaid, in full, the remaining secured notes (classes A-1, B-1, C-1 and D-1) outstanding of approximately $73.4 million. During the quarter ended December 31, 2017, the Company, as collateral manager of TICC CLO 2012-1, dissolved TICC CLO 2012-1 pursuant to Delaware law by filing a certificate of cancellation with the Secretary of State in Delaware.

 

In connection with the August 25, 2016 repayment of approximately $36.0 million of the Class A-1 notes, the Company incurred debt extinguishment costs of approximately $0.6 million, which consisted of approximately $0.3 million in accelerated note discount expense and approximately $0.3 million in accelerated deferred debt issuance costs.
