PRIOR SALES PURSUANT TO THE “AT THE MARKET” OFFERING

 

From March 7, 2016 to February 12, 2019, we sold a total of 19,681,099 shares of common stock pursuant to the “at-the-market” offering. Of the 19,681,099 shares of common stock sold, 13,813,244 shares were sold pursuant to our prior registration statement on Form N-2 (File No 333-205405) (the “Prior Registration Statement”). The total amount of capital raised as a result of these sales of common stock was approximately $210.7 million ($147.6 million pursuant to the Prior Registration Statement) and net proceeds were approximately $206.3 million ($144.5 million pursuant to the Prior Registration Statement) after deducting the sales agent’s commissions and offering expenses.

 

 

 

 

THIRD QUARTER 2018 FINANCIAL HIGHLIGHTS

 

·Net asset value (“NAV”) per share as of December 31, 2018 stood at $7.56, compared with a NAV per share on September 30, 2018 of $9.93.

 

·Net investment income (“NII”), calculated in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”), was approximately $12.3 million, or $0.33 per share, for the quarter ended December 31, 2018.

 

·Our core net investment income (“Core NII”) was approximately $17.7 million, or $0.47 per share, for the quarter ended December 31, 2018.

 

oCore NII represents NII adjusted for additional cash distributions received, or entitled to be received (if any, in either case), on our collateralized loan obligation (“CLO”) equity investments while excluding any cash distributions believed to represent a return of capital. See additional information under “Supplemental Information Regarding Core Net Investment Income” below.

 

oWhile, in our experience, cash flow distributions have historically represented useful indicators of our CLO equity investments’ annual taxable income during certain periods, we believe that current and future cash flow distributions may be less accurate indicators of taxable income with respect to our CLO equity investments than they have been in the past. Accordingly, our taxable income may materially differ from GAAP NII and/or Core NII.

 

·Total investment income for the third fiscal quarter amounted to approximately $22.8 million, which represented an increase of $0.9 million from the second fiscal quarter.

 

oFor the quarter ended December 31, 2018 we recorded investment income from our portfolio as follows:

 

§$22.1 million from our CLO equity investments, and

 

§$0.7 million from our CLO debt investments and other income.

 

·As of December 31, 2018 the following metrics applied (note that none of these values represented a total return to shareholders):

 

oThe weighted average yield of our CLO debt investments at current cost was 11.2%, compared with 11.0% as of September 30, 2018.

 

oThe weighted average GAAP effective yield of our CLO equity investments at current cost was 15.8%, compared with 15.6% as of September 30, 2018.

 

oThe weighted average cash yield of our CLO equity investments at current cost was 19.8%, compared with 20.7% as of September 30, 2018.

  

·For the quarter ended December 31, 2018 we recorded a net decrease in net assets resulting from operations of approximately $75.8 million, or $2.03 per share, including:

 

oNet investment income of $12.3 million;

 

oNet realized gain of $0.4 million; and

 

oNet unrealized depreciation of $88.5 million.

 

·During the quarter ended December 31, 2018 we made additional CLO investments of approximately $74.1 million, and received $72.0 million from sales and repayments of our CLO investments.

 

·For the third fiscal quarter, we issued a total of 1,777,636 shares of common stock pursuant to an “at-the-market” offering. After deducting the sales agent’s commissions and offering expenses, this resulted in net proceeds of approximately $18.2 million.

·On February 7, 2019 our Board of Directors declared the following distributions on our common stock:

 

Month Ending  Record Date  Payment Date  Amount Per Share 
April 30, 2019  April 23, 2019  April 30, 2019  $0.135 
May 31, 2019  May 24, 2019  May 31, 2019  $0.135 
June 30, 2019  June 21, 2019  June 28, 2019  $0.135 

 

Our Board of Directors also declared the required monthly dividends on our Series 2023 Term Preferred Shares and Series 2024 Term Preferred Shares (each, a “Share”) as follows:

 

Preferred Shares Type  Per Share
Dividend
Amount
Declared
   Record Dates  Payment Dates
Series 2023  $0.156250   March 22, April 23, May 24  March 29, April 30, May 31
Series 2024  $0.140625   March 22, April 23, May 24  March 29, April 30, May 31

 

In accordance with their terms, each of the Series 2023 Term Preferred Shares and Series 2024 Term Preferred Shares will pay a monthly dividend at a fixed rate of 7.50% and 6.75%, respectively, of the $25.00 per share liquidation preference, or $1.875 and $1.6875 per share per year, respectively. This fixed annual dividend rate is subject to adjustment under certain circumstances, but will not, in any case, be lower than 7.50% and 6.75% per year, respectively, for each of the Series 2023 Term Preferred Shares and Series 2024 Term Preferred Shares.

 

Supplemental Information Regarding Core Net Investment Income

 

We provide information relating to Core NII (a non-GAAP measure) on a supplemental basis. This measure is not provided as a substitute for GAAP NII, but in addition to it. Our non-GAAP measures may differ from similar measures by other companies, even in the event of similar terms being utilized to identify such measures. Core NII represents GAAP NII adjusted for additional cash distributions received, or entitled to be received (if any, in either case), on our CLO equity investments.

 

Income from investments in the “equity” class securities of CLO vehicles, for GAAP purposes, is recorded using the effective interest method – this is based on an effective yield to the expected redemption utilizing estimated cash flows at current cost. The result is an effective yield for the investment in which the difference between the actual cash received, or distributions entitled to be received, and the effective yield calculation is adjusted from the cost. Accordingly, investment income recognized on CLO equity securities in the GAAP statement of operations differs from the cash distributions actually received by the Company during the period (referred to below as “CLO equity adjustments”).

 

Furthermore, in order for the Company to continue qualifying as a regulated investment company (“RIC”) for tax purposes, we are required, among other things, to distribute at least 90% of our investment company taxable income annually. Therefore, Core NII may provide a better indication of our estimated taxable income for a reporting period than GAAP NII; we can offer no assurance that will be the case, however, as the ultimate tax character of our earnings cannot be determined until after tax returns are prepared at the close of a fiscal year. We note that these non-GAAP measures may not serve as useful indicators of taxable earnings, particularly during periods of market disruption and volatility, and, as such, our taxable income may differ materially from our Core NII.

 

The following table provides a reconciliation of GAAP NII to Core NII for the three months ended December 31, 2018:

 

   Three Months Ended
December 31, 2018
 
   Amount   Per Share
Amount
 
GAAP Net investment income  $12,343,472   $0.330 
CLO equity adjustments   5,362,876    0.144 
Core Net investment income  $17,706,348   $0.474

NOTES TO SCHEDULE OF INVESTMENTS

DECEMBER 31, 2018

(Unaudited)

 

 

NOTE 1. UNAUDITED INTERIM FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

  

Interim financial statements of Oxford Lane Capital Corp. (“OXLC,” “we,” “us,” “our,” or the “Fund”) are prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America (“GAAP”) for interim financial information and pursuant to the requirements for reporting on Form N-Q. Accordingly, certain disclosures accompanying annual and semi-annual financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP are omitted. In the opinion of management, all adjustments, consisting of normal recurring accruals, necessary for the fair statement of financial results for the interim periods have been omitted. The current period’s results of operations are not necessarily indicative of results that may be achieved for the year. The interim financial statements and notes thereto should be read in conjunction with the financial statements and notes thereto included in the Fund’s Form N-CSR for the six months ended September 30, 2018, as filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

  

NOTE 2. INVESTMENT VALUATION

  

The Fund fair values its investment portfolio in accordance with the provisions of Financial Accounting Standards Board Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) Topic 820, Fair Value Measurement and Disclosure. Estimates made in the preparation of OXLC’s financial statements include the valuation of investments and the related amounts of unrealized appreciation and depreciation of investments recorded. OXLC 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 OXLC makes. OXLC is required to specifically fair value each individual investment on a quarterly basis.

  

ASC 820-10 clarifies 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. OXLC 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, little or no market data exists.

  

Collateralized Loan Obligations — Debt and Equity

  

OXLC has acquired debt and equity positions in Collateralized Loan Obligations (“CLO”) investment vehicles and has purchased CLO warehouse facilities. These investments are special purpose financing vehicles. In valuing such investments, OXLC 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. OXLC 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 about other relevant transactions, including firm bids and offers in the market and information resulting from bids-wanted-in-competition. In addition, OXLC considers the operating metrics of the specific investment vehicle, including compliance with collateralization tests, defaulted and restructured securities, and payment defaults, if any. Oxford Lane Management, LLC (“OXLC Management” or the “Adviser”) or the Fund’s board of directors (the “Board of Directors”) may elect to engage third-party valuation firms to provide assistance to our Valuation Committee and Board of Directors in valuing certain of our investments, including, but not limited to, when requested by the Board of Directors or the Adviser. If a third-party valuation firm is engaged by the Fund, it will provide the Board of Directors with a written report with respect to each investment it has reviewed. The Valuation Committee will evaluate the impact of such additional information, and factor it into its consideration of fair value.

 

Securities Sold Under Agreement to Repurchase

 

The Fund has entered into an agreement, whereby, it sold securities to be repurchased at an agreed-upon price and date. The Fund accounts for this transaction as a collateralized financing transaction and this transaction recorded at its contracted repurchase amount plus interest. The Fund’s securities sold under the agreement to repurchase are carried at cost, which approximates fair value. Please Refer to “Note 9. Borrowings Related to Securities Sold Under Agreement to Repurchase” in our most recent Semi-Annual Report as of September 30, 2018 for additional information.

NOTE 3. FAIR VALUE – (continued)

  

  (1) The Fund generally uses non-binding indicative prices (“NBIP”) provided by an independent pricing service or broker on or near the valuation date as the primary basis for the fair value determinations for CLO debt and equity investments, which may be adjusted for pending equity distributions as of the valuation date. These prices are non-binding, and may not be determinative of fair value. Each price is evaluated by the Board of Directors in conjunction with additional information compiled by OXLC Management, including performance and covenant compliance information as provided by the independent trustee.

  (2) Represents a single investment fair value position, and therefore the range/weighted average is not applicable.

  (3) Prices provided by independent pricing services are evaluated in conjunction with actual trades, and in certain cases, the value represented by actual trades may be more representative of fair value as determined by the Board of Directors.

  (4) The Fund 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. OXLC 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.

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

  (6) The impact on fair value measurement of an increase in each unobservable input is in isolation. The discount rate is the rate used to discount future cash flows in a discounted cash flow calculation. An increase in discount rate, in isolation, would result in a decrease in a fair value measurement. Significant increases or decreases in any of the unobservable inputs in isolation may result in a significantly lower or higher fair value measurement.

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 Beneficial Interests in Securitized Financial Assets, 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 Fund 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 Fund during the period.

  

The Fund also records income on its investments in certain securitization vehicles (or “CLO warehouse facilities”) based on a stated rate as per the underlying note purchase agreement or, if there is no stated rate, then an estimated rate is calculated using a base case model projecting the timing of the ramp-up of the CLO warehouse facility.

  

Interest Income – Debt Investments

  

Interest income is recorded on an accrual basis using the contractual rate applicable to each debt investment and includes the accretion of discounts and amortization of 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 interest method. The amortized cost of investments represents the original cost adjusted for the accretion of discounts and amortization of premiums, if any.

  

Generally, if the Fund does not expect the borrower to be able to service its debt and other obligations, the Fund will, on a discretionary basis, place the debt instrument on non-accrual status and will generally 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 Fund generally restores non-accrual loans to accrual status when past due principal and interest is paid and, in the Fund’s judgment, the payments are likely to remain current. As of December 31, 2018, the Fund had no non-accrual assets in its portfolio.

NOTE 4. INVESTMENT INCOME – (continued)

  

Other Income

  

Other income includes distributions from fee letters and success fees associated with portfolio investments. Distributions from fee letters are based upon a percentage of the collateral manager’s fees, and are recorded as other income when earned. The Fund may also earn success fees associated with its investments in 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.

  

NOTE 5. SECURITIES TRANSACTIONS

  

Securities transactions are recorded on trade date. Realized gains and losses on investments sold are recorded on the basis of specific identification.

  

An optional redemption (“optionally redeemed”) 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.

  

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.

  

NOTE 6. U.S. FEDERAL INCOME TAXES

  

The Fund intends to operate so as to continue to qualify to be taxed as a regulated investment company (“RIC”) under Subchapter M of the Internal Revenue Code (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, OXLC is required to distribute at least 90% of its investment company taxable income, 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 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 Fund 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. Management has analyzed the Fund’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 Fund’s fiscal 2019 tax returns. The Fund identifies its major tax jurisdictions as U.S Federal and Connecticut State. The Fund 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 six months or year.

 

Distributions

 

Our distribution policy is based upon our estimate of our distributable net investment income, which includes actual distributions from our CLO equity class investments, with further consideration given to our realized gains or losses on a taxable basis. Distributions from net investment income and capital gain distributions are determined in accordance with U.S. federal income tax regulations, which differ from GAAP. Distributions from net investment income, if any, are expected to be declared quarterly and paid monthly. Net realized capital gains, unless offset by any available capital loss carry-forward, are typically distributed to stockholders annually. Distributions to stockholders are recorded on the ex-dividend date and are automatically reinvested in full and fractional shares of the Fund in accordance with the Fund’s distribution reinvestment plan, unless the stockholder has elected to have them paid in cash.
